Okay so beautiful, I get it, you WANT to start a meditation practice. You know all the benefits of having a regular meditation practice in your life. But still for some reason you can’t quite close your eyes and do it.
This is why I am going to be taking about the most common road blocks that are getting in your way to creating a regular meditation practice in your life. The good news it’s going to be short, simple and to the point. The bad news it’s kind of going to leave you with no excuses to not meditate. But reallty, there are worse things to happen.
Have you been feeling like a complete failure as of late? I probably don’t even have to describe to you how that feels, because you kind of just know.
That whatever you are doing is not enough, you aren’t far enough along as you should be, you don’t have life all figured out and seriously why are you still struggling with that issue? If people could see inside your mind they would see what a complete fraud you are.
Those thoughts, stories and way you speak to yourself is not something you are just uncovering. You are all to familiar with the catch cry of ‘not enough’ in your life.
Always feeling like you haven’t done enough, that you are behind, that you aren’t going to reach your goals, so really why even bother?
I spoke about falling out of love with my business post my Manifest My Desires workshop the other week here. In person events, which I love have a natural tendency of a low post, due to such a high of the creation and getting to the event, not to mention all the adrenaline of rocking it.
Now I know I am definitely not the first person to fall out of love with their online business and I know that I will not be the last too. Which is why I believe it is so important to firstly talk about it and secondly talk you through what I did to help me fall back in love with it.
So let me paint the picture, I just generally couldn’t be bothered post event, a big couple of months putting on this workshop mixed with huge life lessons left me feeling totally zapped! My head was swirling with all these thoughts and that is always a tell tale sign I need to slow down!
Last Saturday I was working my day job and I told my boss that I have major #joblove. Why? Because I had a turmeric latter bought for me as a treat, and was gifted an incredible new jacket we just got in. This is on top of the already incredible perks I get with complimentary yoga and pilates classes.
Yesterday my day was made even more incredible by being gifted a brand new pair of running shoes as once again an incredible gift to say ‘thank you’ for all my work recently.
The funny thing is that this job didn’t just fall into my lap, it’s a job that a lot of people look to as their dream job, but I was able to make it mine.
Lately I’ve been in the middle of what I am going to call a shit-storm.
I feel like I should be further along. I feel like I keep falling short of the person I want to be.
Let me guess, you feel this way to? Honestly that doesn’t surprise me at all.
Why? Because you are here, and we live in the 21st century where you can see what everyone is doing with every minute of their time and how that is better than the option you are currently choosing. It’s a beautiful breathing ground for your ego.
Perhaps you have the feeling that you should be further along, that you should have your shit together, that you are taking the wrong path and should be doing what everyone else is.
