Saying 2020 has been a stressful year would be a massive understatement. Many people are having to work from home for the first time in their lives. Balancing work, relationships, and parenting is incredibly difficult, especially when it all happens under the same roof. Personally, I’ve been working home for years, but this has still be a difficult transition to have the rest of the family back at home, too. After hearing that meditation was helpful for so long, I finally decided to give into the woo-woo science. Let me tell you…It works. I was someone who resisted meditation for so many years. Now, I feel like it’s something that guarantees to bring me back to my center.
Meditation has been around for a very, very long time as part of eastern tradition. It became more popular in the United States during the hippie era. Back in the 1970’s, my mom’s company was ahead of the game in terms of employee self-care. They gave their employees free access to meditation sessions in a small office during her lunch break. Listening to these helped keep her calm in a stressful office environment. Flash forward to the 90’s, and people were able to buy cassettes and CD’s with these meditations to listen at home. But with the wonders of the Internet, we can get amazing meditations for free without ever leaving the house.
There are a lot of meditation apps out there, if you prefer to do that. However, some of them start out as free, and eventually ask you to pay to continue. That’s why I’ve found my meditations through YouTube. You can listen on your phone, Smart TV, or computer. However, I highly recommend doing this with headphones on, preferably when you first wake up in the morning, or late at night. In the beginning, you need to see what works best with your schedule. Once you start meditating regularly, I promise it will change your life.
After hearing rave reviews about this meditation from people who claimed that it brought money into their life, I was more than curious. It’s only 15 minutes long, and actually feels much shorter. In each day of this meditation, Dr. Deepak Chopra teaches you a different lesson about having an abundance mindset. Then, he’ll give you a period of time where you simply hear soothing music. You’re asked to focus on the manta. Weirdly enough, I found myself losing all sense of time. Fifteen minutes felt more like five. Just like other people have claimed, I started experiencing synchronicities with money.
In that 21 day period, I received a total of $1,500 out of the blue from three different sources. On top of that, one of my editors reached out to see if I wanted to join a new project which would pay an additional $500 a week. Two of my brothers lost their job during the pandemic, so I asked them to try this. One of them began receiving multiple job offers from recruiters on LinkedIn that pay more than his previous employer. The other hasn’t had any money fall into his lap, but he felt more motivated to begin his online classes so that he can move onto a completely new career path. Was this all a coincidence? Or did the meditation help all of us tap into some super secret magic of the universe? Honestly, I don’t know. But it’s totally worth trying.
