So here are my top tips to help you become a Master Meditator:
Like most things in life, consistent practice will yield results and meditation is no different. If possible try to meditate at the same time each day to create a muscle memory in your body. This will train your brain to make meditation a habit for you. Once meditation is formed as a habit, you’ll find that you slip into a meditation like a pro.
Stop worrying about whether you are doing it “right” or about trying to “achieve” something with meditation. Meditation begins when you stop trying and you just start doing. Just follow the voice of the person guiding you, or your own breath, and allow the process to unfold. Stop trying and let it happen.
Make meditation a priority
If you really want to learn to meditate you need to make it a priority. It should be as important to you as eating, drinking, sleeping, and exercising.
Stop trying to achieve everything in one meditation. There are so many different reasons to meditate and different meditation styles out there that it’s important to focus on one thing at a time. If you want to balance your chakras do a meditation for that. If you want to relax your body and mind, then do a meditation for that. If you want to connect with your higher wisdom, then do that. But don’t try to do it all in one meditation. You will feel overwhelmed and possibly feel like you are failing at it and won’t continue.
Make sure you find a comfortable place, in a comfortable position and eliminate any distractions. That could mean turning off your phone, closing the door and lowering the lights.
And finally just keep going. As I mentioned early, becoming comfortable with meditation can take time but I promise you it is worth the journey and it does get easier with time. And after a while you’ll feel like a Master Meditator!
And remember, Happiness Starts with a Smile and Empowerment Starts with a Choice!
