Meditation is a Pathway to Peace
Have you noticed that voice inside your head?
The one that is pretty much constantly giving you advise and setting off alarm bells warning you against this or that?
That voice may even have a familiar tone, like that of your mother or father or in my case my big sister.
Becoming aware of that voice is a big key to creating peace and pretty much anything else you want in life.
When I grew up, my sister and I spent a lot of time taking care of ourselves and as my sister is 17 months older than I , she was given the extra ( and unfair) responsibility to make sure I was ok too.
A real challenge given that I was a bit of a wild child, who loved to break the rules.
From an early age I had heard her voice telling me NO, don’t do that and being on the receiving end that disapproving look she got on her face and the annoyed with me energy she seem to have towards me constantly, fair enough I deserved it.
What I didn’t realise until well into my adult years was that the bossy, disapproving voice in my head which often made me feel wrong or that I was screwing up was that of my sister.
Wow – that was a revelation discovering that.
Meditation has been a pathway for me, first of all to even notice the voice in my head and then to have enough distance between me and that voice to realise it tells a lot of BS. It is dramatic, it often says stuff that scares the heck out of me and can really distract me from my mission.
The more I meditate, the stronger my witness becomes and the more choice I have over the direction of that voice.
I have come to know that the conversation going on in my head has a lot to do with my success or self sabotage, my feeling good or feeling scared and doubting myself which of course lowers my vibration and has me out of alignment with who I want to be.
Meditation is a gift I give to myself every day -It is a pathway to my peace.
If you are new to meditation I would suggest a guided meditation – here is one I have recorded – Loving Kindness Guided Meditation
There are many great meditations – find one you love and set yourself a challenge to do it daily for 30 days and see how you feel at the end of that.
I would love to hear what you discover.
