…or how to teach your inner child to meditate…
I started meditating in my early 20’s about 30 years ago and I have meditated on and off since then. However, this year I have taken my daily practice more seriously and I have had deep heart changing success. So much so that I now believe that everyone should practice daily, especially children and as we are all children inside, it means all of us.
There are two complaints I receive from those who are first beginning to practice coming mainly in two places: 1) How do I stop my monkey mind or stop my mind from continuously chattering, and 2) How can I sit still for all that time…I must admit that most online or app guided meditations last for 10 minutes, which can seem a long time when you first begin.
Meditation Mini Mission
- Practice every day
- Choose a time when you won’t be disturbed
- Choose a piece of music, but no lyrics, that lasts for 2-3 minutes
- Sit comfortably and listen, no speaking out loud or moving until the music ends
- Keep the same piece of music for the whole week and try not to miss a day
Meditation is…the connection of mind to body and body to mind.
