Ignite Your Inner Wisdom
True or false?
Successful meditation requires emptying your mind of all thoughts.
I hear this frequently from people who really want to have a meditation practice but can’t seem to make it stick: “I just can’t stop thinking!”
Yep. That’s a thing.
And it just so happens that I have two suggestions for building a meditation practice without undergoing a lobotomy.
First things first, know that you don’t need to empty your mind.
I’ve been meditating regularly for almost 20 years, and thoughts still float in during sessions. What does change, though, is the ability to observe the mental chatter without getting involved.
That might not sound like much, but when you can watch your mind’s shenanigans without immediately diving into the fray, you open to a universe of previously hidden options and newfound freedom. Truly, it’s the bee’s knees.
Second, you might have more success starting out with a different style of meditation, which brings us to this month’s special session…
Meditating for Guidance
In this one-on-one session, you’ll learn a style of self-guided meditation that will help you access your intuition to receive wise insights to life’s questions, big and small.
Because it’s less about emptying your mind and more about interacting with your internal world in a mindful way, I’ve found it to be a wonderful tool for building a strong meditation practice, even if your mind’s a little (or a lot) on the chatty side.
During our time together, I’ll guide you through the process from start to finish, so you’ll feel ready and raring to repeat the meditation on your own at home.
You’ll get a takeaway sheet of the whole process, and we’ll cover topics like:
- How to successfully enter and exit a meditative state.
- How to access an inner sacred space to establish a sense of safety, even in the face of potentially challenging material.
- How to interact in this space to ask for and receive guidance.
- How to interpret and integrate guidance into your day-to-day life.
You can perform the meditation seated or lying down, and when we’re done, you’ll transition to the table for a mini Reiki treatment to send you on your way feeling balanced and refreshed.
