And How To Make It Work For You
Happy new year! It’s officially the start of another year, Happy 2023 to you! It’s around this time of the year we find ourselves setting goals, resolutions and intentions. Part of that may include developing a wellness or self-care ritual, which I’ll touch more on next week.
Today I share with you reasons why you need to include a consistent meditation practice in your routine and rituals and most importantly, how to make it work for you.
Listen to the Podcast
Last week I shared with you my reflections and 15 lessons I learnt in 2022.
You can find this on podcast episode 6, linked here.
Six of those were,
1. Number 4 - I don't do overwhelm.
2. Number 5 - I am intentional about the things I do. Out of a pure heart, with authenticity, truth and courage I act.
3. Number 6 - The courage to take action to live the life I want to live.
4. Number 7 - Honouring my needs is a gift of love I deserve.
5. Number 8 - I am not an island. I am expanding my capacity to love and be loved.
6. Number 11 - You deserve to heal. Feeling the pain, and releasing the pain Is the greatest gift of healing you can give yourself. It's not easy. This is breakthrough.
I discovered, to get the most out of a lesson, we must go through a life experience that shows us.
You've probably heard of the many benefits of meditation, primarily for the benefits pertaining to mental health- from easing anxiety and depression, boosting your self-confidence, reducing stress, and many others.
Yet at times you still find yourself questioning or wondering whether it works? The short answer is yes, there are many studies to prove that, and in my case, my own personal experience.
I can confidently say meditation is one of the greatest gifts I've ever received and consistently practicing meditation is one of the greatest gifts I've given myself.
In the podcast, I touch on
How to Make Meditation Work for You?
The last of the 3 reason I provide is,
Find what feels good and works for you
There are many forms and ways to meditate. As individuals, our experiences are unique. What feels good for you is different from what feels good for another. We have the strength and power to design a ritual that works four us, creating a personal experience that we come home to and feels just right… it doesn't have to be comfortable, because we need to grow, but it's our practice.
Some of the things you can do is combining your meditation practice with other tools and practices, like journaling, affirmations, yoga, breathwork, walking, music, and many more.
Root to Crown is a 7-day meditation experience I designed with that In mind.
A way for you to ground yourself and harmonise.
An experience that combines meditation, affirmations, mantra and journaling.
An experience to usher in calm, ease and clarity as we kick start this new year.
I invite you into this meditation experience, as you design or figure out your wellness rituals for this year.
Developing a meditation practice is one of the greatest gifts I've given myself.
I call it a gift because of the benefits I've reaped. From calming my mind to providing an overwhelming sense of peace and the way I see myself. Practiced consistently meditation is life changing! A true act of self-love.
I've crafted this meditation experience to help you ground, for balance and alignment recognising all the energy points in the body, Root to Crown.
My hope is for you to reap these and more benefits of meditation through this 7-day experience which went live yesterday, the 2nd of January.
