Hi!🙏 BenArion here...
So, what is the mindset you need in order to be able to meditate consistently every single day?
Just a few short years ago, I was broke and I felt lost, and I didn’t know what to do.
Today, I have a purpose I feel called to fulfill, and everyday at work feels like a day on the playground.
Since that day when Yogi Bhajan gave me the name "Sat-Siri-Singh" (The Great Lion Of Truth) I've been on a quest to fulfill my dreams, and live my true purpose... and Meditation was KEY in my journey, that's WHY I'm sharing it with you!
"Creation is ready to SERVE YOU, if you just BE YOU".
- Yogi Bhajan
Almost everyone in life, once they hear about the amazing potential of meditation, tries to pick up the habit.
Strangely enough, however, people almost never CONTINUE to meditate consistently after they start.
They meditate a few times, maybe even start to see results, and then fall out of the practice.
But why does this happen?
The truth is that most people have a hidden limiting belief about meditation, and that limiting belief is what drew them to meditation in the first place.
That belief is usually some variation of:
“Meditation is something I use to heal myself.”
And while yes, it’s true that meditation IS something we can use to heal ourselves, emotionally, psychologically, and even physically in some cases, ask yourself this:
How often do you take an aspirin when you feel healthy?
Treating meditation like a salve for our wounds requires us to be wounded to even think of using it in the first place.
When we think of meditation in this way, we subconsciously enter into a painful and repetitious cycle of practicing meditation until we feel “healthy” enough to forget that we need it every single day.
But when we actively schedule it into our lives, we can often run into a different limiting belief that is just as likely to make us quit.
And THAT belief is that meditation is “work”.
Work, to most people, is not fun.
And those who think of meditation as something that they “have” to do every single day in order to see results inevitably end up resenting their practice, and quitting the practice anyway.
That is, of course, until they start to feel terrible, stressed, and anxious once more, and then remember how amazing meditation made them feel back when they were practicing.
Then, sadly, the whole cycle starts anew.
It’s not that meditation should be used only when you’re sick...
It’s not that you should FORCE yourself to meditate every single day…
“Meditation is FUN. Meditation makes you FEEL good.
It’s a REWARD that you give yourself for all the things in your life that actually cause you stress, and that you work hard at.
Meditation itself isn’t work, and it never should be. Meditation… is PLAY.”
Appreciating Meditation in this way is the first step towards building a lasting habit that transforms your life.
Use it as a sanctuary against the rest of the hectic chaos of the world, and you’ll soon find yourself effortlessly gravitating towards it.
In fact, a lot of recurring problems in life can be fixed in exactly this manner, just by simply reframing the context of our beliefs.
