Meditation that Works

I was challenged by my good friend Kellie this week to try meditation that works, instead of the inconsistent and infrequent variety (like I HAVE been doing).  While I have practiced meditation every so often, I’m not consistent with it … like, AT ALL.  🙁  She suggested I mediate for 30 minutes … just to start with, and increase my time and frequency from there.  I said “KELLIE, 30  minutes?!” … that seems like an awfully long time to me!  She explained to me that the 10 minutes I HAD been doing was really not enough time for it to be really effective.  Now, truthfully any time meditating is more effective than not meditating at all, but still, if you’re going to do something, you may as well do it properly; have it be effective, right?!

So, here’s what happened … I’m going to be REALLY honest with you now … this is what happened in my first session of 30 minute meditation:

Yup, that’s right … I FELL ASLEEP!!  (ugh, oh Lorri … )

Now, OF COURSE sleeping is NOT meditating, and I will keep practicing until I can do 30 minutes without sleeping as there are really just SO many benefits to meditation!

Here is something from Huffington Post that I found on meditation:

“Studies show that meditation is associated with improvement in a variety of psychological areas, including stress, anxiety, addiction, depression, eating disorders and cognitive function, among others. There’s also research to suggest that meditation can reduce blood pressure, pain response, stress hormone levels and even cellular health.”

So, as you can see, it will be very worth my while to practice this until I’m able to not only NOT fall asleep, but to make it a habit, a really great meditation habit.

Here is something else I found online that you may want to give a try, it’s a FREE 10 minute meditation soundtrack that is really awesome!

Do you  meditate?  Have you had to overcome that sleeping issue?  I’d love to hear your stories in the comment section!

Millionaire Mind Intensive | Lessons 1 & 2

It’s sometimes hard to describe how AWESOME something is, unless you are there to experience it for yourself.  Last weekend I attended a weekend seminar called the Millionaire Mind Intensive, which is a part of a T. Harv Eker series of courses.

I’m not going to spoil the surprise for you of the types of exercises and activities we conducted there, but let me just tell you, you’re going to WANT to experience this!  I broke out of my comfort zone in ways I never thought was even possible!  I did things to break through my fear of … sheesh, EVERYTHING, that I’m still smiling at total amazement at!!  😀

I’ve made a couple of videos that I’d like to share with you describing some of the lessons I learned there.  Everything about that weekend was truly excellent!  If you are looking for growth in your life in ANY area I would HIGHLY recommend this series of courses and camps!

Here’s lesson #1: “how you do anything is how you do everything”

Lesson #2: “we teach what we need”

Both of these lessons are ones that I’ve likely heard before. You know how it goes though, we don’t REALLY hear until we’re ready to listen.

What causes you to REALLY listen? It often comes … when you’re least expecting it!  Are you struggling?  Or maybe you need a real change?  I would HIGHLY recommend Millionaire Mind Intensive.  You can find more information on it here.
