MEDITATION FOR STRESS FREE LIVING

The best form of meditation for you is the one with which you resonate and feel motivated to practice. It needs to become a way of life helping you become more awake to your desires, dreams, wishes, hopes, fears and worries. When we learn to wake-up we are more in tune with our creative side, we have deeper personal insights, and we are aware of our own inner intuition. We learn to find a silent still consciousness within.

In the wise words of Deepak Chopra – "don’t just do something, sit there" In a world that promotes business and doing opposed to stopping and getting quiet meditation teaches us a new way to be in the world that spiritual teachers have known for decades.

Here at the Mindfulness Space we focus on Mindfulness, guided visualisation, metta (loving kindness and compassion), and energy balancing meditation practices, all of which can help you to get unstuck in life and living more consciously and compassionately with the attitude of "Trusting Emergence".

Meditation and visualisation affect the brain and body in completely different ways. Mindfulness Meditation soothes and settles the nervous system calming the flight-flight –freeze response. This allows the meditative practices to bring up new and more insightful ways to view old problems and current distresses. This inner meditative state is also a place for healing the mental and emotional disturbances. As we release anxieties, disappointments, and irritations into this peaceful state of allowing (resting on a neutral anchor in the present moment, breath, sound, body) on a regular basis you notice it is an effective way to help you cope with the stress of daily life and build greater confidence in your ability to respond to life opposed to reacting offering you the pause to review your choice of response.

If you find yourself struggling to build a regular meditation practice, I often suggest starting with 5 minutes (some meditation is better than no meditation); so try small micro-moments of practice but dropped in many times in your day. Think of it like this, if you have a bucket that you want to fill up but you can’t stand there and wait for it you can leave it under the dripping tap and in the end, it will get filled up (yes slower but you will get there).

It is also extremely helpful to have a meditation teacher/mentor to help and guide you (in the west this is often not seen as necessary) but let’s face it when we try to learn something it's always comforting and reassuring to have a teacher who has a deep understanding of the subject and extensive experience of their own meditation journey who can point you in the right direction when needed (in other traditions having a spiritual teacher is seen as part of the journey into self-understanding and growth). They help you to enquire into your practice and your experience guiding you in the direction of self-growth and healing.
