An introduction to mindfulness and meditation

In my line of work I speak to so many people from all walks of life, some are new to their spiritual journey, others are at a similar point to me and others are far more advanced and I seek their guidance, which I eventually pass to others. One thing, no matter how far into your journey you are, remains the same and that’s meditation… Of course this changes as you change, you can enter deeper states of trance, you can quieten your mind more easily, you can venture further, explore different planes and visit past lives to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, the possibilities are endless.

Meditation doesn’t have to be a long and drawn out process, it’s something that needs to be built up gradually over time, 5 minutes of  focused concentration, is far more beneficial and enlightening than half an hour of meditation where your mind wanders and picks at all the things that may go wrong over the following week, month or year. Trying to jump straight into a lengthy meditation will only drive you bonkers, so start off small and take pleasure in finding your own sacred mental space.

Meditation and setting intentions holds a deep personal power and gives each and every one of us the opportunity to connect with not only our higher self, but our guides too. It is when we can relax into a meditative state, whether that’s sitting or laying down inside, or walking through a place that brings inner calm. For me this is the forest or near any body of water that has little footfall, the quieter the better for this task. It is in this time that we can truly relax and see the beauty of our world and the lives that we are forging for ourselves.

If you receive our newsletter, you will be aware that I have been playing about with YouTube and have created a new channel for recordings. After much head scratching, cursing, testing and countless google searches, I have created and uploaded a short morning shower meditation, which would be perfect for beginners as you don’t need to make time to fit this one into your busy life, simply hit play and hop into the shower and you’re good to go.

The aim of this guided meditation is to help kick start your day with great energy and focus, to cleanse yourself of any residual energy from the previous day and to get a head start on being grounded and centred for whatever may come your way.

Please note that any type of hypnosis / meditation is intended for entertainment purposes and is not a replacement for traditional medical care. Regular meditation can bring about positive change and allows you to get in touch with your higher self.

This particular meditation has 5 minutes of speaking followed by relaxing music, which will give you the time and space to carry about your normal shower routine, although I recommend listening to this recording in the morning, I appreciate that all of our lives are very different and this can be used at other points in the day as you see fit.

 

If you have an idea for a guided meditation, feel free to get in touch, as some of my best ideas come from talking to people just like you.

Brightest Blessings,

Nicky
