You’ve probably heard the saying “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” We could also say “When the student is ready, the coach appears.” But yesterday that statement was “When the student is ready, the coach appears… and becomes the student.” Let me explain…

There is something validating, even empowering about having the medical community acknowledge the health benefits of positive thinking and being happy. The brochure on the left outlines the advantages to our overall well-being related to developing habits which make us HAPPY!
Up until recently, after countless hours of attempts and disappointments, I had decided that meditation was overrated; it was too hard; I wasn’t doing it right; there was a secret that the experts weren’t sharing. At the very least, I had decided that meditation was not for me! Why would I want to sit still, with my eyes closed for fifteen minutes, doing nothing if I didn’t perceive a benefit? No thank you!

And that’s <clap>what it’s all <clap> about <clap, clap>
I take that back. Meditation is not what it’s all about ~ Feeling Good is what it’s all about! Meditation is just a tool to help get us there. And if you ask me, (which I realize you didn’t, but hey~it’s my blog!) there’s no faster, better, easier form of meditation than Abraham-Hicks “Getting Into The Vortex Guided Meditation”.
And if you’re anything like me, when you decide to begin a new habit that’s supposedly good for you, you definitely want to notice results quickly, unmistakably and easily, or you’re likely to give up on it.
So why am I standing on this meditation soapbox? Admittedly, I am no expert in the practice of meditation. I’m a nurse, a coach and a Mom and aside from the few classes I’ve taken and books I’ve read on meditation, I’ve had no formal training on this subject. Yet here I am, blogging about a practice that I have only recently added to my routine, as if I’m an authority. Who do I think I am anyway? I’m simply someone who, when they find something they like, shares it. And when I find something I love; something that takes just 15 minutes a day and makes everyday better, I write about it~ And create a workshop to share it with others. So here’s why…
Meditating regularly can help you:
1. Feel happier
2. Relieve chronic pain
3. Strengthen your Immune System
4. Feel more energy
5. Focus and pay attention more easily
6. Sleep better
7. Handle stress more effectively
8. Enjoy and appreciate every minute of every day more fully.
Add those all together and you’ve got a world-class recipe for feeling good.
And when you feel good, you vibrate at a higher frequency than when you feel not-so-good.
And when you vibrate at a higher frequency, you attract things on a higher frequency.
And chances are almost certain, that all the things and experiences and relationships and health and wealth and happiness you want are at that higher frequency.
And the only way to get them is to be a vibrational match to them.
In summary, meditate!
If you’re already doing it, I’d love to hear your experiences and techniques.
If you’re not already doing it, at the very least, go buy the book and give it a try. And at the very best, join us in this workshop which begins TONIGHT, Wednesday August 1st at 8PM EST. (Is it really August already?!?!)
I’m confident you will say “this is one of THE BEST things I’ve ever done~in my entire life!” Seriously!
In the last post we discussed how our Immune System is affected by our mental attitude and touched on the fact that research shows the practice of meditation improves our immune response. He (the Ph.D. who gave the seminar AND did the research) said that people with weakened Immune Systems showed a vast improvement when they meditated on a regular basis.
This is very good news…if you meditate. My experience tells me that most people don’t, which I find completely understandable, because MEDITATION IS BORING! At least that’s what I used to think. Continue reading
Last week I attended a seminar titled “The Immune System: The Mind-Body Connection: Who Gets Sick And Who Stays Well” These programs are a requirement to maintain my Nursing license, and usually pretty dull and boring. Well, not only wasn’t I bored, but I came away feeling as inspired as if I had heard a great motivational speaker. Continue reading
