Mantra meditation is NOT about the mantra

Mantra meditation is NOT about the mantra

Oftentimes, when we hear about mantra meditation, there are a lot of different rules and practices that float around. We can get discouraged about even trying to meditate with a mantra, because we don’t know which mantra will be “the right one” for us or if we are supposed to repeat it a certain amount of times. We can also get distracted by the meaning of the mantra we’ve chosen and get off track with the meditation itself.

In this short video, I give you an overview of how to meditate with a mantra and what we are actually doing when we use a mantra during our meditation practice.

Busting guilt and shame around not meditating

If you’ve been feeling guilty, ashamed or plain stupid (like I did) about not being able to meditate daily, this video is for you. I share my own story about how I started meditating and give some tips, so you can start too. I know that you can do it! I believe in you.

Breathe – a poem

Breathe – a poem

When you get angry, breathe.
When your dinner seems ruined, breathe.
When you try, but fall off the wagon, breathe.
When it feels like you can’t possibly go on, breathe.
When life seems all around unbearable, when you lost all hope, breathe.
When you discover there is a light at the end of the tunnel, breathe.
When you feel you can be happy again, breathe.
When everything is good as it is, breathe.
When you feel full and alive, breathe.
When you are, you breathe.
