The word “meditation” is a loaded one. When I ask folks to reflect on their experience with quiet sitting meditation, it conjures up eye rolls, shoulder shrugs or simply a confession like, “I couldn’t shut off my mind – I was sitting there planning the details for the next quarter of my business” are commonly shared with me. But, as I describe in this video, all meditation techniques are not created equal and the one I particularly have in mind could rock your world!
Another word for meditation could be “going inward” – getting to know yourself. Being in touch with your intuition or that deep Inner knowing. Why would you do this?
Because it is the profound portal or doorway to being able to release all that stuff that makes you crazy, makes your personal and professional life suffer. And often the people around you miserable.
But, in my experience, there are many who are simply not cut out to do the quiet sitting – what’s called mindfulness meditation. I know. I was one of them. It throws people into a quandary. It did me. Actually feeling ashamed because it appears so many others are doing it. Why can’t I?! There must be something wrong with me.
My executive assistant, my beloved Carsey, who some of you know from my Online ceremonies had some choice words about mindfulness sitting:
“When I hear the word “meditation” my skin crawls. I think of how I need to work on my posture and I’m going to be terribly uncomfortable – so I won’t be able to clear my mind anyway. It just sounds crazy to me to plan 30 minutes of guaranteed anxiety.”
In our busy distracted world it is a tough assignment to sit down and shut up for even 5 minutes. And research shows that some who suffer from trauma can actually experience flashbacks, dissociation and re-traumatization in practicing quiet sustained attention to their inner world.
So, if any of this sounds familiar to you, I have an invitation for you to experience something different – a powerful and active meditation process for those who can’t get themselves to slow down and sit – despite knowing all the benefits like reducing stress.
