Meditation Tips

When You’re Struggling To Meditate

You’ve probably heard it, know about it, or have tried it at some point. Meditation is a great way to calm your mind, listen to your inner voice and gain focus. It can be challenging at times though, especially when you are starting out.

If you’re anything like me, you find it hard to turn off the noise that is in your head.

Here’s a tip: Search YouTube for “guided meditation” and you will find numerous videos which you can listen to and help get you into that zen state.

Some videos have people talking over calming music. Use these to learn about different ways to think or focus while you are meditating. I like the business and life success ones. There are a lot that focus on that.

Typically I lie down on my bed with palms facing up and get comfortable. I put my earphones in which cuts out all external noise distractions, load YouTube on my phone, and close my eyes.

The two that I am enjoying at the moment focus on a particular audio frequency. There is a lot of research and science behind these frequencies which is fascinating. I am enjoying the sounds of these two audio’s and I find they really do work for me. They aren’t just a solid tone either like you may think. It’s definitely not boring to listen to.

The first one I listen to in the morning or during the day before I get into work. It’s called DNA Upgrade. The frequency is 528Hz which is called the miracle frequency. It’s only 20 minutes long which is perfect for getting into the habit of meditation and giving yourself a relatively quick boost of focus and clarity.

The second audio focuses on the frequency of 432Hz and is a sleep meditation audio. This one is an hour in length but I’m not sure I’ve ever been conscious until the end of the audio. I find it puts me into a deep sleep very quickly. I usually wake up some time during the night with my earphones still in.

Try listening to these audio files for yourself and see if they make a difference for you. It’s best to try these over a period of time rather than just once off. It may take you some time to appreciate it and get into the vibe.

Write your comments below on what you experience while listening to these audio’s. I noticed when I first started that after listening to the 528Hz audio I could feel my arms and fingers vibrating for a good 10 minutes after. It was as if the audio tuned my body into the frequency to the point I could physically feel it. Take notice of the small things. Don’t write them off. It all means something.

Money Is Abundant. Time is Limited. how are you spending it?

Money is Abundant. Time is Limited. How are you spending it?

There is a prevailing fear in our society of not having enough. Falling short. Being without. It’s an idea that is programmed into us from our parents, peers, and out of the natural human tendency to focus on the negative rather than positive.

There is nothing wrong with money, and there is nothing wrong with having lots of it. Abundance is a wonderful thing, but more importantly is to realise that you have limited time on this earth, and although money is important, it’s not most important. Why spend all your time chasing money only to miss out on experiencing your greater calling.

Figuring out your purpose on this earth and why you are here is something most of us don’t focus enough attention on. In my time of figuring those things out there is a constant nagging thought in the back of my mind that I need to start making money again. What if I run out. How long can I go like this. What should I pursue right now so that I am financially secure. It’s all based on fear.

The problem with those thoughts is that they delay me from my ultimate purpose. If I have the mindset that money is abundant. Money can be created easily, then I have no need to worry about it. My thoughts create reality around me. What is limited is time. Time waits for no one, so the time I spend worrying about money is time I lose not seeking, waiting, listening and hearing from the universe and my inner self.

If I can learn to listen, and be patient, then money will flow If I operate in my true purpose.

The focus here is on reducing your internal pressure to make money now when there are bigger things in life to get sorted out first. The irony is that when you figure those things out, money, abundance, happiness and all good things will naturally flow.

What is your purpose? Why are you here on this earth?

If you don’t get that right, then you are living life in busyness rather than on purpose. We all need money to survive in this modern world, but how much is enough? What if you could take the focus off money and put your focus on your higher purpose? What if once you did that, you wouldn’t have to strive so hard for money to come into your life. What if it just naturally flowed to you and success was just natural. It is a potential reality if you choose it.

That’s what we are aiming for here. If you are at a point in your life where you have a chance to take some time out, and spend time figuring out your ultimate purpose. TAKE IT. Don’t stress about the money. Don’t let your family, peers, or your mind sabotage you into short changing yourself. If you truly believe that money will flow, it will. If you seek the answers to why you are here, you will find them.

There is no greater purpose than to figure out why you are on this earth and how you are meant to impact this world.

What is the greater loss? Money or Time? Which can you not get more of?

If you are still reading this, take encouragement that you are on the right path. Money is not the most important thing you need right now.

 

3 Tips to mastering social anxiety

3 Tips To Mastering Social Anxiety

Social anxiety can be crippling for many people. By definition we all have it to some degree. As humans we have a need to interact with others and feel approval by those around us. It becomes a problem when we inhibit our own personal growth becoming anxious over what others think.

If you find yourself trying too hard to please others or feel the need to have everybody like you, then here are a few tips to help.

1. The first one is realising that you can’t please everybody. Not everybody is going to like you. Now, I know that statement likely causes you to be anxious just reading it. What you need to do is come to a place of acceptance. Only by accepting you are perfect in yourself and there is only one person in this world qualified to be you, can you truly embrace the idea that you don’t need everybody to like you.

2. The second tip is to take time out everyday to meditate. Come to a place of peace within yourself. Try breathing in a circular motion, so don’t pause at the end of your inhale and exhale. Keep your breathing constant. Take deep comfortable breaths and don’t pause. The idea here is to listen to yourself. Get in touch with your most inner being and inner thoughts. You know the answers to your questions. It’s just a matter of quietening your mind to really hear what you need.

3. The third tip is to realise that you don’t need external validation or other people to tell you what you should do. What that will do is only give you more opinions to confuse you. Social anxiety naturally will have you asking people their opinion on the problems you face so you can feel validated. There is no right choice, only the right choice for you, and only you are qualified to make that choice. There is always a place for running ideas past people but if you are constantly seeking others approval for your life choices then you are not going to get anywhere.

Those 3 tips will help if you have social anxiety. Try practising meditation everyday for 20 minutes. If you can’t do that long at first, then start smaller and build up. The first time you try it, your mind will likely be everywhere and you will have trouble sitting still. Bear with it and give it a chance. Persistence is key. You will master your social anxiety and find inner peace to make the decisions that are right for you.

When You Are Feeling Confused About Your LIife Direction

We all experience tough times in our lives. Times of confusion. Times of upset. Times where we don’t know the correct path to travel.

Most of us believe there is something greater than us out there. A higher power to call upon when we need direction or comfort. Either God, the universe, or even our inner voice. Now is the time to seek that.

For those like me who tend to be over analytical, like to feel in control and need to know the answers right now, we can tend to get overwhelmed with both the small and big life choices.

In those times it’s important to remember that there is a perfect plan for our lives.

If you don’t know or feel that purpose within you yet, then take some time to start meditating and listen to what that purpose is. The answer is within you.

Life isn’t always going to go to your plan, but it is moving forward. The life lessons you need to learn are progressing and you are evolving.

Take comfort. Rest In yourself. Find that inner peace and trust you are on the right path. Life is a journey and you are in the best seat.

If you are still reading this article, then be encouraged. If you are looking for answers and feel confused about your day, your year ahead, or your life plan then take this as a sign that everything is in order. It’s no accident you are reading this.

It’s important to take notice of what the universe is telling us in daily life. Don’t gloss over seemingly insignificant things. Life may be trying to send you a message. Don’t ignore it. Ask God, the universe, or project questions that ask for signs on what you should do next.
