Meditation has been a savior for me on my path. When I hit rock bottom about two or so years ago my health was a mess and so was my life. I had a lot of outer success but I was a mess on the inside. My health was a reflection of the struggles I was dealing with internally, and behind closed doors in my personal life. Getting to a place of severe pain and stress pushed me to have to do something to shift my state and circumstances. I started to implement meditation and more spiritual principles. I slowly removed myself from the negativity around me and made sure to make stillness and reflection a big part of my daily routine. This is what ultimately took me on a journey of deciding to take steps to transform my life.
Through my quiet time and work on my internal self, I was able to hear my intuition and start following it. I then slowly heard that I had to be alone more to hear my true self. I made sure to start honoring this and removing myself from an environment that had not allowed me much space to do this. Once I got back to my own energy and time alone I could really start feeling and knowing what was causing me to be in a place of chaos and drama. The more I got away from that lifestyle, the more I craved peace. I really believe that without this time of stillness, reflection, and meditation I wouldn’t have been able to get myself out of the things around me that were keeping me in a place of pain. That is why I believe that you can save a lot of time if you actually take the time to disconnect and unplug and connect to your internal guidance system (your intuition) and make sure to get clear with what your life is trying to speak to you about. Life is always speaking to you but if you don’t take the time to listen you will miss the message. I did this for years and it took me off course…but, it is never too late to get back on track!
In a world that is full of chaos, it is more vital now then ever to take time to connect to your true self. It is too easy to fall into fear, anxiety and stress. Without meditation and prayer, I would struggle to remain positive with the state of our society. It takes connecting to my spiritual life that keeps me going and believing in the bigger picture. I decided to leave my old life behind and all toxicity that was limiting my ability to be my authentic self. This past year, I took time for prayer and meditation on all of my journeys. What I know for sure is you can find that place of peace anywhere and at any time and all you have to do is slow down and connect inward.
