“I struggle with meditation, my mind is always going. How can I get to that place where I have no thoughts?” ~ Martin, Tulsa, OK
Forget about stopping your mind and all those racing thoughts. For me, my meditation practice serves the magical purpose of celebrating my life. It is the opportunity for me to get fully present with the 60 trillion+ cells twinkling inside of me and simply be with my breath.
Instead of trying to shut your thoughts off, distract or entertain your mind in a positive way by giving it a technique to focus on. For me, I love to practice all sorts of different breathing techniques, sound toning and inner body exploration.
When your mind has something to focus on (which is all it ever needs in life), you’ll soon find yourself accessing deeper spaces of peace and a calmer state of being.
If you need any techniques, there are lots of resources on my website as well as on this incredible machine known as “The Internet!”
