Pause & Meditate
Updated: Oct 14, 2022
Stress and anxiety are real. In the noise of the world, it can take a moment to tune out everything around you and tune in to yourself. What are the practices you use to go within yourself? Meditation and mindfulness are tools that can help you develop a stronger understanding of yourself, helping you grow into your best self. Mindfulness is the act of being attentive to yourself. You are a woman who yearns for this but it is not a part of your self-care practice. I am here to guide you on this journey. Take your self-care practice to another level with mediation. It can benefit you on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. TRUE STORY... God taught me how to meditate in my 5 am prayer time. I was not a fan of waking up so early and I certainly was not a fan of being silent for 45 minutes. Can you imagine how many thoughts I had at this time of the morning? From what I wanted to eat, what I needed to do, to getting back into the bed to how much longer do I have. The thoughts were running wild! With practice and God's help, I learned how to quiet my thoughts and sit in silence. Honestly, I have never experienced peace like this. It also increased my ability to hear God's voice more clearly. It changed my life! This was a true change because I remember the days that I hated silence. I needed some noise in the background because the negative talk in my head would get so loud. I did not want to face it and did not have the energy or skills to manage it. Can you relate? I am sure thinking about learning to meditate can be a little scary. When we don't understand or know how to do something, we can talk ourselves out of an experience. Let's be clear...
You don't have to start with 45 minutes. It could look like 5 to 10 minutes.
You don't need to stop thinking completely to meditate.
You can learn to meditate even if you tried before and it did not work.
