Do You Have A Fear of Meditation?

Recently, at the end of a yoga class, I asked the students if they would be interested in a 10 to 15 minute guided meditation accompanying a future class. I was struck by the terror in Meditation3the eyes of many of the students and by the comments that followed: I can’t stay still that long, that’s not for me, I can’t meditate, etc.

If you are afraid of meditating you might want to contemplate the question of why. Why are you willing to put off something so beneficial to your peace of mind and general well-being.

Are you afraid of what you might feel if you are not busy distracting yourself? If you stop your frantic pace and find stillness, would you have to face the truth of who you really are and recognize that the choices you have made have brought you to your own suffering? Maybe you recognize that you might have to make huge changes in order to align yourself with the universe and harness your true potential. If this resonates, then my guess is that you are a normal human being living in the Western world.

Sometimes the frustrations of the known world seem less scary than the possibilities of the unknown. But the truth is that when we align with the truth of who we really are, with all of our strengths and weaknesses, life becomes less of a struggle and more of a process of living blissfully with purpose. Moreover, numerous studies show that meditation helps conditions such as, depression, anxiety, heart ailments, etc.

If you would like more information on meditation there are several websites to look at. I thought this TED X was interesting:

Be Here Now


Be here now:

A practice that can be hard to find; but in those fleeting moments when body aligns with soul, existence can be exquisite.

Envision what Love feels like

revolutionThe next time you practice, envision what love feels like in every yoga posture and during meditation or savasana.

”Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” –1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NIV version)
