Do you meditate? I was afraid to start …

… let me explain … about 14 years ago, I was just about 2 years into a relationship with a guy … the honeymoon phase was over, the chemistry ran out … every weekend we would fight about god knows what … and I cried … A LOT!

After some time that smart guy suggested we should have started meditating … together …

because that seemed to be our last resort to see if we would have gotten over the hurdles … if we could have dig deeper …

I got scared like sh!t … my first thought was … “man, he was going to figure out what a bad person I was” (I used to be convinced that I was a really really terrible person)

I was like … “I better play along with him otherwise I might lose what we had … or even worse … I might lose him”😱

We decided on a meditation technique of the author who had convinced us …

By reading his book one part of me genuinely felt relief … I sensed there was freedom behind all those negative emotions, reactions, pain that I felt …

We started meditating …

I don’t want to be corny but meditation saved our relationship … I am still together with that guy (now married, poor thing – him, not me just kidding )

However, the best thing about meditation was that for the first time I was able to be an observer …. to wait … to be a silent witness … to respond not to react …

I can’t tell how grateful I am to be able to practice that powerful technique … it’s been giving me so much …

At one point a few years after our innitial start I was asked to lead online group meditations for Indian people living in the US and India …

Then I organized classes to teach people meditation …

I lead group meditations in the parks (that was the best thing!) as well as recorded some …

and I stopped meditating all together for a block of five years due to some life events … because I’m just a human …

Do you meditate?
And how?
