I am not sure everyone who knows me will agree, but I actually feel like I’m a temperamental person. I suspect it’s the control freak in me that wants to be able to calm myself and control my thinking.
But what I’m wondering I guess is whether I need to go to meditation classes or lessons, or whether it’s something I can do myself?
September 2, 2013 I actually did a bit of yoga in the early 2000s and then switched to pilates and did private lessons (neighbour was an instructor) for years.
Through meditation and journaling, I’ve become less concerned about my weight, and instead am focusing on accepting my life in its present moment, and relishing my health for what it is. It’s an ongoing journey, but the more I delve into meditation, the more I feel it to be a necessity- your experiences so far are just beautiful. September 4, 2013 The way you describe your reaction to the tape sounds very interesting. I think that the most common misconception about meditation is that the goal is to still your mind or something like that. The other reaction (I’ve had on initial listening and when I sat to listen) was to the Jennifer Polle recording.

The most important benefits of meditation are happiness and joy because you begin to discover something that has been lost! Have you ever tried to meditate and found that while you weren’t having much success in your meditation practice, you were getting plenty of practice in failing?  Great, keep on failing!
I’ve shared this definition of meditation before, that meditation is a state of non-distraction. What we don’t realize is that just taking the time to sit and practice meditation is a success! In a previous post I wrote that learning to meditate may not be easy, at least not at first. Think about this, how would it change your experience of meditation if, no matter what, you accepted your meditation practice as successful?

My end-of-yoga meditations are teaching me a bit about myself and my style of blissing-out. I’ve been working with a health coach for the past few months and over the past few weeks gained the courage to let go of my ambitious diet and exercise plans, take up meditation, slow down, quit my bootcamp and join a yoga studio full time. I hadn’t seen you tweet as much about exercise etc (since our old 12WBT days!!!!) and I’m really happy to see you doing so well! My overeating is so much about the mindset for me and lately I realise that it’s just my go-to position.
Plus – in reality, my weight issues are more about what I eat (at the moment and at this size!) than exercise. I actually have a yoga DVD somewhere and I definitely should dig it out now that you’ve reminded me of it. I learned it mostly from mindfulness books, but I also visited a local Buddhist center’s meditation classes for a few times. I do find archery is very zen for me – I have to concentrate on one thing only (my brain is usually all over the shop), I have to control my breathing and aquire a stillness that is not in my nature.
Why is it that we’re so willing to give up on training and taming our mind when the benefits are so incredible? Deciding to work with your mind, realizing that it will bring you and others the benefit of your presence, is an amazing success!
One of the the main things that makes learning difficult is our belief that somehow we’re doing it wrong. How would you feel if even your failure to meditate when you’re trying to meditate was a success?

He also has over thirty years in a variety of health-care settings and is a long-time practitioner in meditation, with an emphasis in the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism and Christian and Kabbalistic Contemplation. And not in too much of a hippy-trippy way so that I become TOO laid back or appear a little mentally-spacey (and yes, I do know people like that!).
I want to be able to move on from things from my past that keep me stuck, and I want to be able to move forward without being overly-angsty about things that might or might not happen.
I’m starting to imagine a life where I walk daily and yoga several times a week (my budget permitting) and in between, I focus on stilling my mind and unleashing more passion and creativity into my world.

It felt like a huge plunge to let go of the things that I perceived to be keeping my health and well being in check- when really I was feeling guilt ridden, lazy, inadequate and deep down felt I wasn’t at all good enough to fit the fit woman mould. I guess I’m a visual (and language) person myself but my visualization tends to be bit patchy if I do that. He said he still got frustrated or grumpy but could head somewhere private (toilet cubicle was the example he gave) and start breathing and then he was fine.
I’m hoping to start kayaking in summer and hoping it will prove calming and zone for similar reasons (nature!). You prepare the fertile ground by clearing your inner space when you begin to meditate and breathe purposefully.
A baby learns to walk by standing up, and then falling down, and then standing up again, taking a step, and then walking and falling, and then…standing up again. So, when you’re meditating and you become distracted, do you give yourself a hard time for your failure? Now that you know that even your failures can be part of your successful path to practice, what will you do differently? The only problem is, it’s so hard to just focus on meditation and clearing the mind and I think that requires practice. After falling, the baby doesn’t sit on the floor and deliberate about whether it will ever walk again, it just gets up and tries again! Maybe you’d even find that you gain as much in your failures as you do when you succeed. Last week for the first time I sat (rather than lay down) to listen to the 30min meditation and was impacted in the same way I was the first time.
Every time I practise I feel like I’m peeling layers of myself away, rather then forcing my body and mind to change. I know I’ll never stop getting impatient or grumpy or stop stressing completely, but being able to breathe through it and release it sounds ideal!!! And sometimes I feel like I come close to achieving it but other times (like a couple of weeks ago when I was PMS central) there’s absolutely no way of reining in that dragon that wants to breathe fire and brimstone over the earth.
