Welcome to my own journey with meditation, where struggles, moments of self doubt, and the urge to throw in the towel were constant itches. But, you know what? Even with all the challenges, I discovered something wonderful, spiritual breakthroughs that shook the very core of my being and unraveled the power of living in the present moment.

Alright, no sugarcoating it, i jumped into meditation thinking it’d be a breeze. oh man, was I in for a shock! My mind went on a crazy joyride, thoughts racing and refusing to quiet down. And my body? Ha! It rebelled against the idea of stillness. Can you imagine the frustration? It feels like an uphill battle to silence my thoughts and find blance within all my senses and then self doubts crept in, making me question everything the process itself and whether I had what it took to attain the understanding.

Almost Giving Up

Things got real tough, real fast. I found myself on the edge of giving up. As self doubt and impatience made itself home, I almost caved. It seemed easier to surrender to the hustle of daily life going back to being distracted, to avoid confronting the uncertainties, shadows and difficulties meditation brought up. But deep inside, a knowing of something More than wonderful is awaiting me. nd that tiny flame fueled my determination to keep going.

I didn’t give up, and Oh man oh man am I glad about that! even with all the struggles, I realized meditation isn’t about forcefully silencing my thoughts, but rather, about acknowledging and observing its crazy show with curiosity, no judgment. (A wise Guru* once told me to “Observe in a state of wonder”) and That shift, opened up an entirely new world. I became more self aware, embracing inner joy regardless of what was happening around me.

I couldn’t believe what happened next, I discovered the mind blowing power of the present moment. My thoughts used to fly all over the place Despair over the past or fear about an uncertain future. But through consistent meditation I discovered the magick of grounding myself in the here and now. And let me tell you, it worked wonders! I let go of worries, regrets, and anxieties and everything out of my control nd embraced a sense of oneness 

Some meditation session left me jaw dropping shocked with benefits that sowed into every part of my life. The stress and anxiety that once stuck to me like a clingy ex? Poof! Replaced with a sense of unshakeable calm and knowing. My self love and love for others grew deeper as empathy and yummyunderstanding is becoming second nature.

 If you walk the meditation journey, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Nope, it takes unwavering commitment, patience (lots of it really a lot), and a heart that’s open. Embracing the present moment That’s a game changer It leads us to a life overflowing with inner peace and the ability to navigate life’s twists and turns like a boss. As I continue this epic meditation adventure, I’m grateful for the struggles that brought me here and for the limitless possibilities  

Love & Light
