Last week I asked, “What do you want?” You may quite honestly have responded, I don’t know.
The truth is, we all have many voices speaking to us from within (not to mention all the voices from without). These internal voices might want different things, and might even contradict each other. All these conflicting messages can drive us to confusion, undesired results, anxiety, fear, and stagnation.
Here’s my take on it. There’s a big difference between what the ego, or little self, wants versus what the Soul, or Higher Self, wants. When you get in touch with what your Soul wants, that feeling of total serenity washes over, because it speaks loudly as truth, and is deeply connected to your heart. Whether it’s matters of work or love, when it’s right it’s right and you just know it.
Problem is, it can be hard to hear the voice of truth over all the chatter, noise, and feedback. So how do you get in touch with that voice? Well my friend, through meditation.
I know I know, you’ve tried and you just can’t do it! The mind is too loud and it won’t let you sit still.
In this video, I present a simple technique for calming the mind and focusing your attention inward. I do this every morning before I meditate, to help bring me into the moment and ease any anxiety I might be carrying with me. It’s something you can do as meditation prep, or any time of day you need a moment to chill out, and turn inward.
Now I know you’ve heard this before, but meditation is a practice, and the only way to breakthrough the discomfort is to keep practicing, like I’m trying to do with my video skills ;). It’s not about being good, or doing it right, it’s just making time to sit still and be quiet with you.
