Sitting in my stillness

I find it really hard to meditate properly and yet when I do stop to take time and just listen to the silence, and let my mind wander where ever it needs to go I feel peace, and inspiration usually follows. But I wonder if we get too hung up on the concept of meditating and if I’m the only one who questions whether or not ‘I’m Doing It Right?!’.

When I’m walking with my dog at sunrise each day I can talk to my guides, listen to the fog lifting and return home feeling spiritually refreshed – is this ‘meditating’.   I know that when I am guided through a meditation by people ‘who do it right’ I can go to interesting places and spaces and come back feeling quite inspired in a whole different way – but are these two states of mind just one and the same but just of different intensities?
 
OK – so the real question I’m asking here is – is there a ‘right way’ or a ‘wrong way’ to reach the relaxed states of mind where inspiration and creativity reside?
 
I’d love to know how others feel about meditation.
 

 

Here’s 5 tips for anyone needing help to get started:

  1. Grab a couple of crystals, smooth shapes you like the feel of, one for each hand.
  2. Sit somewhere quietly… maybe some natural background sounds like rain, ocean, or birds.
  3. Get comfortable – it doesn’t have to be cross legged, or even sitting. You can even do a walking meditation through a forest or along a beach.
  4. Think about the stones or crystals in your hand, focus on those… but if other thoughts push in, practice moving them to a corner of your mind for later, or calmly tell them to wait quietly please. (you can also ask your angels or guides to help with this)
  5. Breath slowly, deeply, and just focus on your in and out breathing.

There’s no time limit -a 10 minute meditation can be just as calming as a longer one for some people. And practice this daily if you can. Soon you’ll be able to locate that quiet space in your mind as and when you need to.

I'm a coach, consultant, author and most of my work is related to these areas, however I've been channeling and developing a growing spirituality in my work during the past years, and find that others like me - serious on the outside, but very spiritual on the inside - are seeking answers, understanding and insights into how Spirituality really does meet with Practicality.
