HOW MINDFUL MEDITATION CHANGED MY LIFE

HOW MINDFUL MEDITATION CHANGED MY LIFE

One of the many issues we face in today’s society is keeping up with life’s fast pace.

Growing up I had to deal with a lot of emotional imbalance within – raise by a single mother and grew up with the absence of a father’s bond. Before I knew it, I was already working and carrying a lot of responsibility in a young age. Even though hands down, I have a loving mother who made everything so beautiful at home despite her struggle however I grew up too quickly.

THERE were days where I would be in a constant state of anxiety just waiting until the next challenge to appear. I was constantly anxious, having little to no sleep, and just not happy. My body and mind were so completely neglected and I felt a lack of inner understanding for what I was doing and where my life was going. I was at a point in my life where things were going downhill in every way – especially emotionally.

I knew something is missing in my life, somewhat disconnected. I knew I need to change this pattern cause sooner or later this will consume me and exhaust my energy. I sat down with my mother and we had a long conversation one night, that night that changed my life.

She told me to let go of expectation and embrace life one at a time. Even though I had heard this advice from my mother many times but this moment here, it shook me up. It felt so real that I broke down in the middle of the conversation. I allowed myself in that broken down moment to just let go and embrace the moment – I learned the importance of stillness, and the importance of being able to tune in and listen deeply and just be present.

Since that day, meditation has been a daily practice. I enjoy the silence, I enjoy my Bible reading and this has been an incredible medicine for me in my life. Now many of you may think I sit with my legs crossed and meditate. No, to me a mindful meditation means:

  • Learning how to become more aware of your own thoughts and emotions without reacting to them. This allows you to really be aware of how you think and feel.

I found out that my beliefs and values were directly creating what I was experiencing in my life. My creativity, ability to create my life as how I want it, increases from day to day. I am able to consciously decide and implement new thoughts and behaviours.

Wishing you all the best with what could be an incredible turning point in your life.

Start out small with a few minutes a day, and build on it from there.
