Why do I say wonderful? Because the participants all had valuable insights about themselves, meditation and life to take away with them.
I always explain that sometimes the process of meditation is not always easy. Traditionallly meditation is described as a ‘purification practice’ i.e. getting rid of what stands in the way of peace of mind and contentment.
One of the recent workshop participants wrote to me and said:
"After the group meditation I had a head ached and felt a little anxious. So I did your Relaxation meditation just before going to bed. This morning I woke feeling wonderful. I feel there has been a big shift. Hard to explain but feel lighter. Those things I have been telling myself about my worth for quite some time I actually feel today."
This illustrates the point. Seemingly the result of the workshop was a headache. Actually this headache was a sign that something deep inside was working itself up and out.
A meditator should not be discouraged by their seemingly unsuccessful attempts to meditate. It is those very attempts to meditate that are meditation – especially when they are showing the nature of the relationship between body, mind and emotions.
The more you know and understand yourself, the more able you are to effectively deal with what life hands you.
