Have you always wanted to meditate, but don’t know where to start? Or have you started, but you don’t know if you’re doing it right? In this blog post I would like to share my best tips with you that will help you easily start meditating.
Welcome to my blog!
I hope I can inspire you and help you experience the magic of life (again)! Often the magic can be found in the little things and the smallest moments.
And don't forget:
You don't have to be perfect to be amazing!
You’re driving in your car, you’re in a hurry and of course, the car in front of you is going really slowly. So you have another red light. You’re starting to get really angry and you say a lot of things to the person who, according to you, caused this.
Following your intuition is a wonderful thing. It feels good, and it leads you to the things that are good for you. Nothing to worry about, right? But what if your mind is messing with you? What if your mind is telling you all of these things to keep you from following...
I'm sitting in my garden, in the sun. It's the first day this year and I'm really excited about it. With my feet in the grass I feel more connected to the earth, but also more connected to myself. I am wearing shoes though, it's still kind of cold, especially the earth ;-)
Sounds of cars driving by, someone (probably one of your kids) talking, thoughts in your head… There are so many things that can distract you when you want to meditate. It’s SO easy to be distracted!
When I’m on the beach I often stand still by the water. I watch the sea coming and going, coming and going… I realise that it’s the same with many things in our life. Things come into our life and they disappear again…
Do you know that feeling that your energy has been cut into a million pieces? That you have lost pieces of you everywhere? I had that today. And I’m going to tell you what I did to feel better.
Meditation, yoga, mindfulness… You hear a lot about these things nowadays. I see many people struggling, because they have to go to yoga, because it’s good for them. Do they really like it? Of course many do, but in some cases I’m not sure... I also hear people say that they want to meditate, but don’t have the time, or they don’t have the patience to sit down and quiet their mind.
I love magic! And with magic I mean a lot of things! I mean Harry Potter and that kind of magic. I mean fairies, elfs, unicorns. But I also mean things in life that make me happy. And that can be little things sometimes!
I have a vision. I believe that everyone can have a life full of magic. We all can live magical lives! So can you! If you choose to see the magic, you will start seeing the magic. If you focus on the good, more good will come to you.
Do you know these days, that from the moment you wake up, everything seems to go wrong? Well, today was one of those days for me. I woke up from the alarm of my boyfriend, about half an hour before my own alarm.
Self love, it’s something you see a lot of people talking about these days. On social media I see lots of messages about self love. Or is it me? Is it because I've been focussing on that? That’s also possible of course. But still I’d really love to talk to you about this, because I think it’s so important!
Sometimes it can be difficult to choose yet another meditation to listen to. You’d like to change every now and then, not always listen to the same ones. But well, you don’t always feel like going through youtube or another page to search for something you like.
This morning I woke up from the sound of loud music. I wondered where that came from, as we were still in our bed and it was only 8 am. My kids were not home, so it was not them. I started focusing on the sound and found out that it was the rain, the snoring of my boyfriend and the sound of a neighbour using a saw. It was a combination of things.
Lately I have been hearing this a lot: “Positive thinking doesn’t work”. What?! Doesn’t work? I have experienced it myself and I can tell you that it does work! But apparently this is not the case for everybody, and I think I know why. I once heard someone explain why positive thinking doesn’t work.
Does it happen to you, that you go to a party, you’re having fun, but after a while you feel like you want to escape to a quiet place, because it all becomes a bit too much? Being highly sensitive and an introvert, places with a lot of people can be overwhelming for me.
