Okay so beautiful, I get it, you WANT to start a meditation practice. You know all the benefits of having a regular meditation practice in your life. But still for some reason you can’t quite close your eyes and do it.
This is why I am going to be taking about the most common road blocks that are getting in your way to creating a regular meditation practice in your life. The good news it’s going to be short, simple and to the point. The bad news it’s kind of going to leave you with no excuses to not meditate. But reallty, there are worse things to happen.
It’s funny how quick we are to give away control over our lives isn’t it?
I am all for conspiring with the Universe to create a life that I love, but it’s funny the moment something doesn’t go our way the slightest shit hits the fan.
It’s easy to say ‘if only it all went my way then I could remain positive, focus on what I am grateful for and just generally not turn into a sassy know-it-all’.
Have you ever been in the situation where you are working towards a big goal, and have lots on your plate? You might even think that you are too busy to take care of yourself.
So your self-care starts to drop, because that voice in your head says “you don’t have time to do yoga today” and so you listen to it. You skip yoga, end up messing and fluffing around for a couple of hours, feeling guilty that you didn’t go to yoga, feel guilty that you have SO much work to do and you haven’t touched anything.
Finally in a couple of hours you are stressed because you didn’t relax with yoga, stressed because you didn’t get all the work you wanted to done and feeling pretty yuk. In today’s post I am going to be sharing with you how you can work on getting unbusy, how keeping your self-care is imperative.
I want to talk to you about why the thoughts that you are thinking to yourself are crucial to your own success.
If you are like any of my clients who first come to see me, you might have these stories swirling around in your head.
- I will never have a successful business.
- I can’t make money doing what I love.
- I am such a fraud, how can I call myself ____.
- I am never going to make it.
- Anything important has already been said.
Those above thoughts could be sporadic or they could feel like they are non stop. You might even wonder why it’s such a big deal? Why does it matter if you sometimes think like that when you truly do want your dreams?
I used to get really frustrated at myself for not doing the actions I kept saying that I wanted to occur. Scratch that, I still can get frustrated at myself for saying I want one thing and acting a different way.
It frustrates me to no end, and it would result in a berating cycle of feeling not good enough. If I wanted to be coaching people, why wasn’t I doing it? To me it seemed simple, if I wanted something to occur, why couldn’t I take the necessary steps to meet my desires?
My mind would spin round and round with all of these stories, and noise. And trust me it could and can get pretty noisy up there.
I thought I was a failure for declaring a goal one day, and not taking any action on it a week later.
