This video – Learn How to Meditate – For Beginners – Breathing Meditation, is a great place to start if you have never meditated before. Being healthy on the inside is a great thing to do in your life. Eating lots of good healthy food, getting loads of turmeric and exercising is great but if your mind is negative and your thoughts are all over the place you are going to struggle to find balance in your life.
Meditation is the only portal I know to inner peace. It is the only way to slow your mind and let the stress and tension of the day dissolve. But how do we meditate? How do we get to that place of peace and change when our monkey mind is thinking about tomorrow, next week, last week, last year and next year? And yesterday?
BREATH IS LIFE
Breathing is the life blood, if you like, of life. If we stop breathing we die. So it’s pretty important. And isn’t breathing a funny thing? We are breathing in this invisible air that we can’t see, can’t touch, can’t hold in our hand and can’t get rid of it from our life. It’s crazy and fascinating and scary. The thing that gives us life we can’t even see!

So with that in mind imagine closing your eyes now and focusing on just your breath. This invisible life long friend. Just breathe and feel that invisible energy going in through your nose and filling up your body with life. Imagine with each in breath you are filling up with peace. Then breathing out any tension or anxiety you may be feeling. You do that for 2 minutes and your mind slows down. It has to. When we are focusing on our breath we stop focussing on our problems and issues of the day. We let our breath relax us and fill us with peace. We slow down.
Give it a try now. Watch the above video and just spend that 2 minutes focusing on your breath. This is the start of your new life, if you allow it to be.
MAKE IT A HABIT
Meditation needs to become a lifestyle habit. Doing it once a week or even 3 times a week will not change you. Change comes from commitment every day. Determination every day.
Discipline every day. Imagine committing to doing meditation once a day, first thing in the morning. Every day. No excuse.
And set yourself up for success. Make a sacred space in your home or outside in the garden. A place that you set up with maybe candles, a nice cushion, some essential oils, sacred photos or ornaments. Then you know whenever you go into that place you know that this ‘is my sacred place’. Visualise every night before you go to sleep seeing yourself in the morning meditating.
