Meditation heals. A few years ago I had a bad situation and managed to hold it together until it was over for me. I could have fallen apart but I decided to meditate on it when I felt panic approaching. I’d sit and go into my meditative state and feel the place that I go into click. That’s all it takes for me to achieve peace within. I’ve been meditating for over 30 years so whenever I decide I need to meditate which is daily, actually, I find my peace within a very short time.
Peace is within us. My daughter knows how quickly I can achieve a meditative state. She was with me and her friend at a New Kids on the Block concert. Thousands of people and she looks at me and I’m in a meditative state with fireworks going off and music so loud. I hear her tell her friend that “my mom’s asleep at a NKB concert!!!” Actually, I was in meditation. The noise was way too much for me and I needed to find peace within. I can’t remember who said it but it was along the lines of – “You should be able to meditate anywhere. After all – who’s doing the meditating? You or the room?”
I’ve been able to meditate on the back of a motorcycle, at concerts, in airports, anywhere I feel I need to establish peace within. It shouldn’t be difficult at all. I always know when I find that peace because there’s this shift that is very pronounced and suddenly there’s automatic peace within.
When I hear people say they can’t meditate I want to encourage them that it’s very easy and anyone can learn how to do it. It’s the best thing you’ll ever do for yourself. Give it a try and don’t ever think you can’t do it. Just do a little daily until you feel your breath slow down along with your heartbeat. Breathe and relax. Breathe and relax. Then breathe and relax some more. Just be with your breathing. Focus only on your breathing. Don’t worry about the mind because it will take care of itself. Become like the eagle and watch your thoughts but don’t engage. Drop all judgment and just be. Focus on your breathing and wait for the shift to happen. Practice daily.
All the best to you.
