This is such an interesting subject for me
I began my meditation journey when I myself was being coached. I was introduced to the Calm app. It totally changed my life. I remember after 30 days I quit smoking. I’d never tried to quit before so I can safely say that meditation helped me get to this point for sure. It happened despite myself.
I was consistent and then the pandemic hit. It threw so many things out of whack for me. I was still working, and it was a very stressful time trying to look after vulnerable clients as well as keeping to government guidelines. My meditation practice really fell by the wayside.
A blessing happened during the pandemic, and I conceived my son as well as getting married. It was always in the back of my mind, but hormones and nausea took care of any proper commitment.
When my son was born, he was very unwell, and I didn’t have time to think for the first 6 months of his life. And then when things had calmed down, I’d lost myself so much I didn’t know who I was. I was going through the motions, exhausted, moody and feeling uncomfortable in my newly-changed body.
During my life-coaching course, I started meditating again sporadically, but I had started and now since I’ve qualified, I realise how important it is for me. I’ve begun doing it again every morning after my prayer to the universe and I feel the difference already. It’s funny I thought I no longer had time for prayer and meditation with a toddler. But since I’ve started again, just like magic, time and space has presented itself.
