“The gift of learning to meditate is the greatest gift you can give yourself in this lifetime.”– Sogyal Rinpoche
I’m just going to come right out and say it: I don’t like meditating. Well, I didn’t like meditating until very recently, that is. I always felt like I couldn’t quiet my mind the way I was “supposed” to; there were only a small number of guided meditations I could bring myself to listen to & follow, and even then I would only do it once a week (if that). The only time I could ever quiet my mind was when I was about to do a reading for someone. Great for doing readings, but not so good for personal growth and my own inner peace & calm.
On a whim, I listened to my gut – a tiny nudge I recognized as a message from my guides – and I purchased the meditation program by Angela Artemis and Steve Aitcheson called “The Reawakening”.
The ReAwakening is a step-by-step program that comes with:
- An easy to understand instruction manual
- Three books
- A workbook
- 10 meditations – you can choose between listening to a male or female voice
- Binaural beats
It only took 10-15 minutes each day. After only a few meditations, I began to look forward to that part of my day. Yes, seriously!
I used to be one of those people who made up every excuse in the book not to meditate: I’m too busy, I’m too tired, I can’t quiet my mind, it doesn’t work for me…chances are if you can think of the excuse, I used it at one point.
So what I’m trying to say is: if I can do it, you can too. If you’re already a meditation guru, yay! If you’re a beginner, expert or something in between, then this program is for you.
One of my favorite quotes from one of the books that came with the program is:
We do not need to lock ourselves away from society or live in an ashram to stay connected to the heart. We can live “everyday lives” that are extraordinary by viewing everyone and everything through the lens of the heart. – Miracle of the Heart
I’m a busy person: I have a day job, do intuitive readings and Reiki part-time, have a robust personal life and spend (too much) time on Facebook. I even have a 3 month old puppy whose favorite chew toy seems to be me. But even Solo meditated with me every day. I called his time on the meditation pillow his “bone meditation” b/c he’d mindlessly (or mindfully?) chew his bone while I listened to the audio recordings.
