Recently I have started meditating again in the morning and I have to be honest I forgot how much I enjoy it. Now I know for many people the thought or the act of mediating can be intimidating, restless or down right hokey. First off I am here to tell you, there is no WRONG way to MEDITATE, and there is NEVER a BAD TIME to MEDITATE. If you have 5 minutes or 30 minutes go for it.
Recently I completed a guided meditation that really hit home for me, the ending prompt was :
“Life is as big or as small as we choose to make it. It all depends on our understanding and perceptions of the limitless nature of our mind“.— WOW! Reread that, take a minute to really absorb it.
I guess I have always thought I was living a big life but when I saw this prompt it made me pause and really think about the power of our mind and the impact we can create for ourselves vs. staying on the hamster wheel of life. I for one want a big life that is full of many wonderful adventures, happiness, health…the list goes on an on. But what really hit home for me with this prompt was, I know I have been in those spaces where I have been complacent or maybe even too comfortable with “life”. Don’t get me wrong I am not saying we all need to be going 110% all of the time but what does a big life mean to you, to me, to our family and friends – everyone’s answer will be different as it should be. However, so many times we find ourselves going through the motions to get by and to keep the “wheels on the bus intact” but is that embracing this idea of a Limitless Mind?
Take a minute right now, what comes to mind when you think of this notion of the limitless nature of your mind. What are your biggest wishes for a Life that is Big, what are the steps that you can start taking to make these changes today for that Big Life you so desire?
My husband and I have talked a lot about this. We have both over the years realized that huge changes are usually not sustainable, however if you start to create small positive changes every day for example meditating for 5 minutes every morning, going for a 20 min walk or run, that when you do this other acts of positive change won’t be as hard. Your Limitless Mind will already be trained to accept and thrive under positive habits and it will embrace these challenges you put forth.
I challenge you all right now to reread that above prompt and think to yourself do you want a Big or Small Life and what doest that really mean to you….
