I was never interested in meditation. It didn’t sound much like ‘my thing’ at all. Closing your eyes and sitting still sounded boring at best. However, as I learnt more and more about the Law of Attraction, I continued to hear about connection and the benefits of meditation.
Giving It A Go
Much to my dismay, I gave meditation a try. What did I have to lose? I found it a challenge, and I would go as far as to say difficult. My mind would wander rapidly, and I would become frustrated at all of the tasks I should be doing at that moment. This was supposed to be a cathartic experience, and instead, it was making me angry. I almost gave up entirely, but I longed for this ‘connection’ I was hearing so much about.
One day, I set a timer, sat in a meditation, and allowed the thoughts to come, but I gave them no attention. Just ignored them as if they weren’t there. Before long, my mind was quiet, and I felt as though I had relaxed into another state. I was alarmed when the timer went off and disappointed that it was over. Had I finally grasped meditation?
From that moment on, I would regularly meditate. I wouldn’t say it was always ‘successful’. It’s called a practice for a reason. The more I did it, the more I fell in love. Little old me, who never thought meditation was the answer, now adores it. I try and meditate twice a day. Once in the morning, just for a few minutes and then a longer meditation in the evening.
I’m a busy mum, and so some days it is hard. It feels like a chore sometimes. I have to reset and recognise that it is not just a task on my to-do list but a benefit to my whole existence. I never regret taking time to meditate, but I certainly feel it when I don’t.
Meditation And You
Meditation isn’t for everyone. There is no one size fits all when it comes to the Law of Attraction, and for you, your connection may come in another form. What I will say, though, is don’t write it off before you have fully tried it. It took me a good few attempts before it felt like the penny dropped, and it all made sense. Take a look on YouTube at some guided meditations and start with shorter sessions at first. This is a new skill that takes time to tap into fully; don’t apply too much pressure to yourself. There are many different types of meditation you can tap into as well. For example, walking meditations and the like – you can check out my shower meditation here.
If you think meditation will be beneficial to you, then give it a go and see how you get on. It’s a great stress reducer and good for calming anxiety and just bringing you back to the presence. I highly recommend it!
