We meditate in order to know who we are, we meditate in order to connect to what is right for us, and we meditate to find true fulfilment. However, when our daily lives seem to speed up with every tech upgrade, it may seem counterintuitive to actively slow down. Yet, this is exactly what needs to be done.
When we are busy, there is a great deal of energy and information that constantly flows through us, and we have a lot of unconscious, repetitive thoughts that are running the show. While we are not often aware of this, it does create a kind of information overload in the body. Through meditation, we can slow down and create space, and in doing so release that sense of overwhelm in the body. When we have that clarity in both body and mind, we are able to make better decisions, function better, and think more clearly.
When we allow space to occur, then something new can come in, and that is what I really hope to achieve through my meditation workshops.
For me, meditation is ultimately about clearing out the debris from all of the conditioning, past thoughts, feelings, and memories that we have held onto that don’t belong to us or serve us anymore. It is about clearing that space, as well as connecting to our true essence. When we can connect to our true essence we find our purpose and our passion, and that is where joy and happiness lies.
