Meditation for beginners

Most of my twenties I suffered from a very severe anxiety. I was unable to relax and constantly worried about something. I tried many things to help me, but nothing really did the trick. During the endless search to get out of this storm, I discovered the teachings of Kadampa Buddhism and a beautiful practice called Meditation. I began taking Kadampa Buddhist meditation classes, which made a wonderful shift in my life. I also started practising meditation at home. Every time I felt the feelings of discomfort and anxiety floating into my reality, I knew I needed to go home. I knew, I needed to reconnect to my truth, to my soul by meditating. Now, I cannot imagine my life without meditation. It is something I try to practice on a daily basis, whether it’s just for 5 minutes, an hour or more.

What is meditation?

Meditation is a beautiful practice that can change your life in many incredible ways. I dedicated an entire page on my website to Meditation, and if you are new to it, I recommend checking it out: http://www.mysticbutterfly.co.uk/meditation/ You can also find some of my guided meditations on this page.

Many people say to me, they don’t know how to meditate. A wonderful Indian yoga teacher, ayurvedic healer and scholar Tirumalai Krishnamacharya used to say: “If you can breathe, you can do yoga.” Well, I say the same to people, when they say they say they don’t know how to meditate: “If you can breathe, you can meditate.” I am very excited to share with you my brand new guided meditation, which I created for beginners. Get your headphones and find a comfortable place, where you are not going to disturbed for a few minutes. Let my voice guide you to the place of stillness and peace, and enjoy the wonderful benefits meditation offers.

***For this meditation, I recommend to be seated in a chair, with your feet ‘planted’ firmly all the ground. ***
