My definition of meditation is intentionally being mindful, clearing my thoughts, following my breath and allowing my body and mind to be still for any period of time.  Boom.  Done.  This is what I do.  I may be driving.  I may be in my house.  I may be by a lake.  It doesn’t matter where or how, it matters that you do it.  I watch it work every single time I use the practice.  Patience.  Peace.  Compassion.  Kindness.  Clarity.  Enlightenment.  The list goes on and on.  Meditation is a simple practice with big results.  I hear this all the time, “I can’t meditate because I can’t shut my mind off.”  My reply, “Do you think that you could play the piano like Beethoven on your first try?”  It is called a practice for a reason.  Practice makes progress.

What I Love About Meditation

My yoga practice was a pathway to my meditation practice.  My meditation practice is where I found my power.  This power leads to peace, confidence, integrity, calm, ease, abundance.  It leads to whatever I need.  It guides me where I need to go whether I know it or not, or want it or not.  In meditation, you turn the volume down on the noise and the chaos of life.  Life will continue to happen, but it doesn’t always have to be so loud and intense.  It makes everyday life more fulfilling, enjoyable, peaceful, patient, compassionate & more joyful.  It helps you develop a new, healthy relationship with anxiety & fear.  A consistent meditation practice will touch and improve every aspect of your life.  It saves my life everyday.
