Do you have trouble sitting still while Meditating?

Do you have trouble sitting still while Meditating?

While meditation has become a huge part of my life now, I was once the uber restless type. I just couldn’t sit still. My always charged up and buzzing brain didn’t help either. But over the years, I have come to calm down(atleast in meditation&prayer). Not because I have gained enlightenment or any such lofty height 😉 But simply because I have my very own simpler ways to meditate.

I love these words by Gretchen Ruben: “If you’re impatient while waiting for the bus, tell yourself you’re doing ‘Bus waiting meditation.’ If you’re standing in a slow line at the drugstore, you’re doing ‘Waiting in line meditation.’ Just saying these words makes me feel very spiritual and high-minded and wise.”

Much like positive thinking, meditation can be done anywhere and at anytime.

A beautiful reader sent me this question and I just HAD TO share my answer with her and you. Read on and you’ll know why 🙂  Continue reading “Do you have trouble sitting still while Meditating?”

The world is thinking about making money and here I am thinking about gaining wisdom!

My 3 Positive Tips to Being In Constant Serenity

My 3 Positive Tips to Being In Constant Serenity“Serenity is not freedom from the storm, but peace amid the storm”

Serenity according to the dictionary is calm, quiet, tranquil

Serenity according to a Mother is the first time she holds her baby in her arms.

Serenity according to a child is the time he snuggles up to his mother and just knows everything is just fine.

Serenity according to some is a place where they can get some quiet time like the beach, a cottage in the country …

Serenity according to me is when my conscious and subconscious are in sync. When external triggers can not touch my true self and when I can truly feel at peace. Continue reading “My 3 Positive Tips to Being In Constant Serenity”

5 Secrets to having a Soul Nourishing Digital Sabbatical

“Where the soul is full of peace and joy, outward surrounding and circumstances are of comparatively little account.”~Hannah Whithall Smith.

Three days back, when I turned ON my Laptop after nearly 7 days…I did it more out of habit and less out of really wanting to. You’ll know I’ve been on my digital sabbatical: 10 days of being offline, as I had decided it was time to recuperate my mind, heart and soul.  Alas, the 10 days have come to an end. But the immense happiness and peace I gained from this time away from all things digital is not going to end. Continue reading “5 Secrets to having a Soul Nourishing Digital Sabbatical”
