Meditation Made Easy

Whatever the question: Meditation is the answer

Whenever I work with someone I suggest they create bookends, something they do every morning and every night to remind themselves that life is a journey of love. I suggest one of the bookends is meditation.

I have taught people how to meditate for almost 30 years and have watched people make it so much harder than it needs to be. They say they are going to meditate and then they put it off. They say I don’t have the time. I have found in my own life I don’t have the time NOT to meditate!

Here is a very simple guided meditation that will show you how to meditate. Listen to it and then allow the magic of meditation unfold in your life.

Enjoy!

Guided Meditations and Visualization – Monthly Meditation Re-Opens

Aloha!

In this video I talk about how we can use altered states of consciousness to make real changes in our lives.

Using the power of guided visualization, you alter the way you respond to events in your life by practicing in your mind beforehand.

Guided meditations help us practice visualization and the better we get at visualization the more effective it is in helping us change our brains and, ultimately, our lives.

I know you have probably heard it a million times by now that meditation is good for you, etc. Etc., and maybe you’ve wanted to learn how but thought it was too time-consuming, or difficult because you thought you couldn’t visualize.

Here’s the thing: everyone can visualize. Even if you feel you’re no good at it; even if you tell me you think you “couldn’t visualize yourself out of a wet paper bag” I say pshaw. :D

The truth is, you CAN do it. In fact, the very act of attempting to visualize actually switches on areas of your brain that were dark and unused before you made the attempt. Over time, as you continue to practice, you will find that no matter how bad you thought you were at it, you become very competent. Eventually you’ll find it hard to believe you ever doubted yourself even the least little bit.

So watch the video and try it for yourself. See how it works and let me know in the comments how you did and whether it brought up any questions for you. I’d love too hear how it went!

And in the mean time, I’m very excited to tell you that I’ve re-opened the Monthly Guided Meditation series and it will now stay open for good.

I’ve gotten wonderful feedback from the first subscribers who got started a few weeks ago too and I’d like to share a couple of their comments:

“… I am a single working mom of a teenage boy. This week, I have been juggling work, jury duty and…[a lot more]…so amid all that is going on in my world, your meditations are something I am dearly looking forward to. I am so grateful that I was able to be counted in the initial group at such an affordable cost.

Your daily reflections are such a main-stay for me and most definitely are food for my soul.”
—G

 

“I enjoyed [the meditations] quite a bit, especially the sunflower one. My goal is to truly do this every day, I’ve known intellectually for years that meditation is helpful but the “just do it” hasn’t happened. I’m looking forward to some peace and pleasant feelings…”
—B

 

“I have been doing this work for 2 1/2 years now, mostly on my own. Last weekend was a particularly dark time for me and your meditations and the Art of Allowing videos helped me a lot. Thank you so much for getting it to me.”
—J

Additionally, the introductory price for the Monthly Guided Meditations will still be good for another week or so.

If you think you’d like to give it a try, I really encourage you to see how they work for you. I’ve made the first month an extremely good deal with extra meditations and a great ebook to help you get even more out of the monthly series—all part of the first month’s price.

Check out the Monthly Guided Meditations and see if this special program is for you…

With much love and aloha,
Susan

Spiritual Practices Take Practice: Meditation

I always tell my students to create bookends. Something they do every morning and every night to facilitate their spiritual practices. I think the most powerful and the easiest is meditation, especially guided meditations. With guided meditations all you have to do is listen!

Plant a seed and watch it grow

I saw this video on CNN world here in Tokyo and thought about guided mediations and spiritual growth. Watch it and then plant thoughts of love in your heart and your mind.

With love,
Susan
