Meet Your True Self – A Meditation

Ask a child what they want to be when they “grow up” and they are likely to give you a pretty detailed description of what career they want, what they want to have, and things they want to do. Children are blessed with the knowledge of who they are truly meant to be in this life. Children are in touch with their “True Self”.

I can remember, as a child, having a very specific dream/plan for what my adult life was going to be like. While it is a little too much to go into here, suffice it to say most of my plans have yet to come to fruition. Sadly, as I grew up I began to listen to the voices that told me:

  • “You’re not smart enough to be…”
  • You’re not pretty enough.”
  • You’re too short.”
  • “Why would you want to go there?”
  • “That’s a silly dream. You need to give it up.”
  • “That is NOT what adults do!”
  • Blah, blah, blah……

Unfortunately, that is how it goes for many of us. We give up the dreams of childhood for the logic and responsibility of adulthood. <insert sad face here>

But what if you could get back in touch with some of those dreams and find a path to get back to your “True Self”?

Today’s guided meditation, is intended to help you reconnect with your true self and your best life. This mediation can help guide you down the path to a more fulfilling career, improved relationships, better health, more happiness, and possibly even that unicorn you always wanted. Ok, maybe not the unicorn…

As with any meditation, this is a tool to help you focus your thoughts on the positive. It is in no way intended to be the sole method you use to improve your current situation (that’s a fancy way of saying, if you’re sick seek medical attention and if you need money keep going to work, etc.)

So, find a safe comfy place to sit back, relax and take some time for yourself:

Mini Meditation Day 1

The holiday season is in full swing, and whether you celebrate or not you have probably been feeling a bit overwhelmed, stressed, rushed, and impatient (or you have noticed it in people around you).

There is no doubt that all of the cooking, cleaning, decorating, shopping, socializing and traveling can cause quite a bit of tension, pressure, and irritability.

These emotions, while natural, can create a strain on your relationships, career, and most importantly your health.

In an effort to help you be your best this holiday season, I have created a series of brief meditations to aid you in managing the final push through the holidays.  Every day this week, I will post a 3-5 minute mediation to remind you to take a few moments to relax, recharge, and collect your thoughts.  Think of them as my holiday gift to you.

You can do these exercises any time you are feeling a bit flustered or overwhelmed.  The mediations are most effective when you can be seated or reclined in a comfortable position with your eyes closed.   Do not listen at a time when your full focus and concentration is needed, such as when driving.

Today’s meditation focuses on your breathing.  You will feel more relaxed and focused after this mediation.  Give it a try and have a happy healthy day!

Take Time to Relax and Recharge

This time of year often brings with it a flurry of activities: work, travel, holiday parties, shopping trips, cooking, cleaning, decorating, wrapping, smiling, hugging, teeth gritting…You know the drill. There is a reason that the holiday season is followed by FLU SEASON.

With all of the hustle, hurry, stress, and fun, (yes, there is fun in all of this holiday madness), it can be easy to let our normally healthy habits slide.  However, it is important that we take some time every day to care for and nuture ourselves.  After all, we can’t fully give to others if our energetic tank is low.

So, it is with this in mind that I created this relaxation and rejuvenation meditation.  In this meditation, we explore not only giving the mind and body permission to relax but also focusing our thoughts on building a positive, healthy image of ourselves: ‘The Best You, You Want to Be”.

The meditation is fairly short, about 22 minutes.  You can listen to it whenever it fits your schedule, first thing in the morning, during your lunch break, after dinner.  Just remember, the purpose is to relax and enjoy some “ME TIME”, so listen at a time and in a place where you can fully relax and focus on the meditation.  Never  listen to any meditation while driving or doing an activity that requires your full attention and concentration.

Now, sit back, relax, and let the healthy, happy thoughts flow!
