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?
Last week I took my introverted soul – you know the one who gets really nervous about having to go to an event by herself, and see other humans in real life to Danielle LaPorte’s Choose to Shine event.
As always I was reminded that in person connection is always, always worth it! Because sometimes we forget, sometimes we get nervous and scared but truly there is magic there. That’s why I am so passionate about in person events, based in Melb? Check out my upcoming Manifest My Desires workshop.
Now I loved this night as a chance to catch up with friends, fellow coaches and light workers in this world. Danielle spoke about the best self help being self compassion and that really struck a cord with me. Today I am sharing what my 3 main takeaways I took from the event were.
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.
I used to get really frustrated at myself for not doing the actions I kept saying that I wanted to occur. Scratch that, I still can get frustrated at myself for saying I want one thing and acting a different way.
It frustrates me to no end, and it would result in a berating cycle of feeling not good enough. If I wanted to be coaching people, why wasn’t I doing it? To me it seemed simple, if I wanted something to occur, why couldn’t I take the necessary steps to meet my desires?
My mind would spin round and round with all of these stories, and noise. And trust me it could and can get pretty noisy up there.
I thought I was a failure for declaring a goal one day, and not taking any action on it a week later.
