The Elusive Art of Meditation

A couple of weeks ago, I was doing an energy session with a new client when meditating came up. I meant to post about it at the time, but summer life and our family “staycation” gave me the excuses that I needed to just be lazy. However today during a session, the same topic came up again! Funny how that happens.So here’s the thing. I am finding that many people are too afraid to begin meditating because of the fear of doing it “wrong”. What we discovered during that last session was that this particular client (not unlike my own mother) loved to work in her garden. This was her meditation! Her goal for that week was to just sit and be in her garden. To close her eyes and feel the warmth of the sun on her head and to visualize this warmth going down and through her entire body. This could last 30 seconds or 30 minutes. It doesn’t matter. That’s the beauty of meditation. There is no right or wrong way to do it really. There is just what works for you. Finding those moments during your day when you can sit and breathe and feel that sense of peace throughout your body. It’s less about how long you meditate and more about just learning to carve out moments throughout your days/weeks for you to reconnect and find that peace. 

How do you integrate meditation into your daily life? What does it look like for you?
