The reality is we all take ourselves too seriously. We allow ourselves to become stressed by our desire to achieve. We push ourselves to the point where we become physically ill, in an attempt to be all things to all people. The perfect parent, child, employee/employer, carer, the list is endless. We need to feel needed. This leads us to think we have to do everything ourselves and we have to do everything perfectly. Think of the Hamster on the wheel, this is what we become. The wheel is endless, the rungs are tiny, it takes a lot of effort and in the end we are running in circles. No wonder we feel stressed.
Meditation allows us time out, time for connection to our intuition, our inner selves. Inside we all know what is right for us, but we allow our conscious mind to convince us that we have to keep running in circles. When we still the conscious mind we allow the voice of our sub-conscious through to give us the reality check we all need. When we sit still & quieten the constant ‘mind chatter’ we give ourselves an essential break to rest and recuperate, physically, emotionally and mentally.
Learning to meditate will change your life – for the better. You will begin to appreciate your ‘time out’ and will quickly begin to feel the benefit.
Once you have mastered the basics, guided visualisations and meditations can take you deep into the realms of your sub-conscious mind to access the answers and guidance you need in your life.
During meditation you have the freedom to go anywhere you wish, real or imaginary – it just takes a little time and practice.
Find a place where you can be alone, warm and comfortable. Make sure you have something warm to put on if you become chilly. Turn off the telephone and put a ‘do not disturb’ sign on the front door. If possible avoid a room where electrical appliances are running, especially computers & televisions. Turn off main lights, use a table lamp or candle instead. During daylight pull the curtains a little to create a ‘twilight’ effect. Have a glass of water ready.
Prepare yourself: Stand quietly in the centre of the room with your eyes closed. Allow your breathing to become deeper; then take 3 deep slow cleansing breathes, as you do so see yourself and the room fill with a protective white light.
Now Sit with your back as straight as possible, adjust your position so that you are comfortable.
If you find your thoughts wander, do not allow it to disturb you. Allow each thought to come into your mind, acknowledge it then let it to go, like a small fluffy cloud passing across the sky. Do not worry if you find it difficult to visualise, for most of us this takes a while to achieve. It takes patience and practice. Do not try too hard, if you cannot ‘see’ images just think of the words instead.
There is no right or wrong way to meditate – feel free to meditate in whatever way feels right for you. You can close your eyes or keep them open, the choice is always yours. Most people prefer to close their eyes as this ‘shuts out’ visual distraction. If you choose to keep your eyes open try to focus on a specific object, such as a candle flame, flower or crystal.
Turn on your mp3 player and enjoy the meditation.
Ensure you follow the guidance for grounding and returning to physical awareness; this is very important. Make sure you spend a few moments quietly, after the meditation, have something to eat and drink. Try not to do anything which requires concentration for at least one hour after you have meditated.

Wow - that's too loud!
If you're listening to the meditation on your computer, unfortunately some audio players (especially Windows Media Player), tend to make audio files sound louder than they original are. That's fine for music, but hardly relaxing for meditation. Adjust the sound control on your PC and your speakers until you find the right balance.
