The short answer to that is...no. Especially when you are
a busy mama.
Meditation is simply the act of focusing on one thought, to the exclusion of all others.
It’s trying to get past the ‘thinking mind’, (or in our cases, the overthinking mind) and into a deeper state of awareness.
Training our minds to focus on one thing.
connecting with our spirit.
My journey with meditation has been a long and bumpy road. As a journalist specializing in spirituality and wellbeing, I’d written about its benefits – a lot.
As a yoga student, I’d experimented with it at the end of a class. And as a self-care blogger, I’d told other people how important it is.
But had I made it a part of my daily life? Nope.
That is, until my life got so crazy, I found myself desperately searching google for meditations for relaxation from my hospital bed, 28 weeks pregnant and in pre-term labour.
Finally, I knew what I had to do.
Over the coming weeks, as I was restricted to couch-rest, meditation became my sanity. I spent days reading about chakras, mantras and breathing techniques.
I spent hours connecting with my inner goddess, understanding my Shakti energy, and embracing my spirit.
what are they all about?
There are four meditations in this pack, all focused on a different area of your life. Each one has a similar style, which includes my voice, a short guided visualisation and relaxation, a mantra, and five minutes of music to help you deepen your practice. All at the very-manageable length of 10-12 minutes.
They are perfect for the total beginner, OR a Mama who has dabbled in meditation but has never been able to make it a part of her life.
The four meditations are:
to help you start practicing kindness towards yourself in all situations, stop the comparisons, and view each situation with love.
Rebuild & Reconnect
to help you learn to love and nourish your body, and be grateful for all it does for you everyday – including the miracle of motherhood.
to help you focus on how strong you are now you are a Mama, and connect with your inner wisdom and power.
to help you embrace all the joy and wonder of this journey, and start to be a truly happy mama.
"I'm calmer, happier, and I can see myself getting worked up before I explode, therefore, I can fix it. My kids are listening better because I yell and nag less. I am nicer to my husband. I worry less about things that drove me to insanity before."
"Since starting on this journey with you and practicing meditation, I am calmer inside - physically, emotionally and mentally. I have stopped fighting against the situation I find myself in at the moment and accepted it for what it is. I have also stopped clock-watching in the evenings and stressing thinking about everything I have to do before going to bed, and instead can enjoy my time with my little girl and even cook a proper meal!"
"My thought patterns are changing. My life feels happier. I am full of energy and I am actually getting healthier and on the road to being cured. I now meditate, do yoga and go to the gym."
