I used to love the *idea* of meditation…but I could never do it consistently. Or at all, if I’m honest.
But here’s a simple meditation exercise below to show you how to meditate using a simple technique. It also includes a downloadable mp3 so you can easily follow along, whether via computer or on your phone/listening device.
My early attempts at meditation left me feeling frustrated, anxious, or simply bored. I couldn’t sit still, I couldn’t calm that ol’ monkey mind. I’d rather spend that time taking care of “real things”. Usually, I called riding my bike my meditation. This is not the same as true meditation!
Then I found this meditation.
Beyond just sitting still and “ohm-ing” your way to bliss, it incorporates finger poses (“mudras”), specific chanting, all guided by an easy to follow mp3 that I could cue up on my iPhone drama-free.
– reduces stress
– increases memory
– improves mood
– (most importantly for our purposes) gets you tuned into, tapped into, and in communication with your inner guidance system, your intuition
In Video 1 of the Strengths & Strategy Series, we identified and cleared out the inner critic.
In this video, we introduce a simple meditation to tap into that still, quiet voice that is our intuition, our “gut instinct”, our internal compass, our inner guidance system.
The more clearly you hear yourself, the faster and more accurately you will find your strengths and hear your deepest and sometimes repressed yearnings. They are waiting for you to discover them!
