Do you meditate to keep yourself on track? For many years whenever I negotiated my job conditions with a new employer, I also negotiated time to go to my weekly personal meditation session with my then mentor. A lot of employers found it a little strange, but I never had anyone say no!!! The funny thing was, despite my commitment to the meditation cause, meditation didn’t really ever work for me in the ways I hoped. I spent hours a day meditating for many years and there was very little to show for it – I was still the world’s most incredible over-thinker… and I still did not have the space and peace that I desired. The Huffington Post talks about the daily habits of wealthy successful business leaders who use meditation and mindfulness techniques to superpower their capacities… that was my target with meditation too– until I became aware of even more creative, generative possibilities that took a lot less time and gave me a lot more ease. Here’s the thing… meditation is designed to give your brain space. To stop you thinking. To have you just BE. We have been presented with one basic way to meditate – sit still and empty your mind.
