Make a commitment to yourself


Meditation Tip

make a commitment


When it’s time for your meditation clear your mind of all the endless things to be done, all the worries and anxieties that seem to bob up from nowhere.

This time is precious and it’s important to train our minds so that when we sit in meditation that becomes our priority.

So make a commitment to yourself that your meditation practice is so important that everything else can and must wait.

This commitment will help you to let go of all the little nagging jobs that are constantly clamouring for your attention.

Seeing The Way Forward Clearly


Do you feel lost at times?

We all have times in our lives when we are not sure how to move forward.

Perhaps there are too many options, or it’s just that you don’t like them. Sometimes we can feel quite stuck just doing what we have always done – home, work, home, work, etc

It can be particularly difficult if we are stressed as well.

At times like this a meditation practice is a great support.

A mindfulness practice brings us back to the present moment. It trains the mind not to run into the future nor back into the past. This gradually lessens your fears of the future and regrets about the past.

With regular practice our mind starts to purify and we feel a greater sense of inner peace and calm.

Protecting Your Meditation Practice


Meditation Tip

Protecting Your Meditation Practice


When you are new to meditation your practice is like a seedling that needs regular water and sunlight.

Just as we protect ourselves from the sun in summer, so too should we understand that to get real and ongoing benefit from meditation we must practice regularly.

Ian and I have been meditating for many years and to new students of meditation we recommend the following:

  • Have a daily practice
  • Set a timer and stay to the end
  • Meditate in the same place in the house, if possible
  • Don’t judge your meditation. Remember to give yourself a pat on the back for keeping up your practice
  • Try not to have expectations. A good saying is to “Accept, not expect”
  • Meditate with others, if possible
  • Read about the benefits of meditation so you can stay inspired when the going gets tough.

Pathway to Inner Peace and Happiness

Pathway to Inner Peace and Happiness


Meditation Tip

What does meditation do for us?


pathway to inner peace and happiness


Above the temple to Apollo, in ancient Greece was the saying “Know Thyself”

Meditation takes us on an inward journey. The pathway leads to inner peace and happiness because it helps us to know ourselves. Along the way it helps us to release mental and emotional baggage, as well as belief systems and mindsets that no longer serve us. It clears past trauma, as well, from the body-mind.

A regular mindfulness meditation practice purifies the mind. A pure mind is more joyful, less reactive and has access to the inner well of peace that we all have.

Our 6-week Meditation and Relaxation class begins on 4th April from 7 to 9pm. Book here


Nurture the seedling

Nurture the seedling


Meditation Tip

Nurture the seedling


Our son gave us this avocado tree last Christmas that he had grown from a seed.

Our summers can be very hot. Our soil is mainly clay and the seedling did not survive.

Small plants need constant vigilance to survive in summer. They need daily water and even shade in extreme heat.

When we are new to meditation, our practice is like a very small seedling. It too needs constant vigilance and support.

Just as we protect a new seedling so to do we need to ‘protect’ and support our meditation practise.

One way we can do this is to have a regular time and place for our daily ‘sitting’. When we do this we are helping to retrain our minds by developing a new habit. A habit that is positive and will lead to a happier, more peaceful life.

We need to make a commitment to practice regularly and then stick to that. This is especially true even when we don’t “feel” like it.

Good habits take time to develop. Just as bad habits take time and diligence to change.

Meditation Tip

Incense sticks


Can you see that these are incense sticks all drying in the outside air?

Incense has been used for centuries to clear negative energy and instil a contemplative atmosphere into temples.

We are affected by negative energy. It can trigger our own stock of buried negative reactions from the past.

Meditation helps to clean up this stock of old reactions that lie unseen in our subconscious minds. These will all bring unhappiness and misery, in time.
