Daily mediation is part of my lifestyle. It was on my ‘most desired’ list for when I was creating the life I love to live manifestation. Depending on my schedule I usually practice my longest & deepest meditation, minimum half an hour, in the mornings. If I’m teaching yoga in the morning I try & fit meditation into the hour break I have between classes. If this isn’t possible I wait till I get home at lunch- time. This is great also to re-balance & relax me especially if it’s been a high-energy morning.
I love Friday’s, who doesn’t it. Even though my new life doesn’t fit the usual Monday to Friday mould anymore I still enjoy ‘the end of the week’ Friday feeling. Every second Friday is now my full day off, no teaching & I try to keep it free from healing sessions too. The other Friday in between I only teach one class at 6pm. Nice to have the whole day to do my desk related jobs.
Last Friday I woke up late for me, naturally at 8:30am. I must have needed the sleep & if I don’t need to set an alarm I won’t. I try to avoid technology if I can when I first get up or it’s too easy to get sucked into emails, social media or general ‘dicking around’ online. 😉 A nice cup of Yorkshire tea is in order though first whilst I go over my to do list. Then it’s time to meditate.
Friday’s guided meditation was calling to me as soon as I woke up. Usually I sit for a while & scan my meditations to see which one springs out at me. I already knew that Money & Wealth Manifesting by Elizabeth Peru was the one I needed on Friday.
It’s a very practical meditation that invites you to take notes if anything comes up for you. I know this seems strange at first, as isn’t meditation all about stillness, letting go & not thinking? There is a big difference between the thinking monkey mind rambling on & listening to the voice of your Soul.Meditation takes on many forms. This meditation is very ‘active’ & hands on. Inside every bodies heart centre (energetically speaking) there is a huge library of knowledge from many lifetimes to tap into. Mediation is the bridge to access this knowing. It takes practice but through consistent meditation you’ll get to discern the difference between the voices in your head.
Through my daily meditation I connect deeply with my Soul who knows 100% what is best for me. Throughout the Money & Wealth Manifesting journey ideas were literally pouring in on how I can create new business opportunities. My Soul was flooding me with hot new creative solutions to take my business to the next level. I chose to be still & let the process unfold, as I trust I will remember what I need to take away with me. If you’re new to this for sure take notes. As soon as I finished I was off, pen in hand recording everything that had come through.
I did step away for twenty minutes or so. Took a shower, did some more cleansing rituals & then came back to my note-book. It’s good to give new ideas some space to breathe. If you pounce on something too quickly you can literally strangle the life out of it. Stepping back & then reviewing from afar I could really feel which ideas I should set rolling first.

How’s everyone been feeling the past couple of weeks? Personally I’ve been feeling very challenged, a bit scattered & my head has been running away with itself. Due to the planetary activity right now it’s normal to be feeling a bit agitated & frustrated. We are being stirred, shaken & mixed up to the max.
When I’m moving forward & expanding my consciousness these periods are when I start to feel uncomfortable & tetchy. It’s new ground I’m breaking; I’m out of my comfort zone so it’s natural to feel unbalanced. This is the resistance I’ve talked about before, the equal & opposite force to everything. To move forward, to gain momentum there must be an opposite reaction like a pendulum swinging back & forth.
In order to keep moving in the right direction I’ve started to recognise these signs knowing it is all good & positive. The trick is to not give into the feelings of anger & start lashing out at others around me. It is hard, especially when I feel wound up. Right now I’m feeling overly sensitive & the slightest thing can set me off.
What do I do then when I’m feeling uncomfortable or irritated? I disconnect through meditation. Disconnecting from the physical world for even a few minutes a day allows me to reconnect again. I find my days are far more productive this way. Step away, then step back rather than going full tilt against it all & turning into one hot mess.
I start & finish every day with a meditation. My evening is shorter, more a reflection & a disconnect from the day. My morning routine involves at least a half an hour or more meditation. Usually a guided recording I listen to on my ipod. If I need more of a rebalance I’ll use my chakra crystals. It’s a really great way for me to start the day. It’s invaluable if I’ve not slept well or my night was a busy one in the astral realm. I try to meditate within half an hour to an hour of waking. If I start getting too involved with my work before I’ve had time to centre it’s extremely counter productive.
For example last week I could see my house needed cleaning, it was bugging me. I kept quickly wiping or dusting or tidying here & there, not really getting too involved, as I knew I needed to get my meditation in first. I walked away from it & disconnected.
After my meditation & some heart talk I was guided to write & do some design work for on here. My heart connection was very strong & ideas were flowing freely. Why waste this energy on doing mundane tasks that could wait till later when I was too tired to be creative? The cleaning was forgotten. It no longer irritated me because I was doing what I love first. Putting myself first & acting on my Soul guidance. It’s amazing how easy life is when I do this no struggle no doubt, no nagging thoughts. I just go.
I got so much done that day. Everything flowed, words were freely written and my creative juices were on fire. The cleaning did get done later on as I still made it a priority for afterwards. I just needed to step away from my busy head to gain some perspective.
Quite often my head will catch up with me later in the day & I get carried away again. Taking micro meditation breaks helps. Literally two or three minutes of sitting in silence breathing with my eyes closed, hands of my heart brings me back. Just like setting the reset button. I pull back from the busy, slow down & stop doing for a moment.
I step out of my box & imagine I’m watching from above. I am the director of my life, just like in the movies. In order to see the bigger picture I need to observe for a while, not always be playing out the lead role. When I’m in too close all I see is the one thing in front of me that I feel is super important. From above I can see the bigger picture & the other things that are around that need prioritising first. Usually it’s what will benefit my growth & expansion more that then takes centre stage.
When ever you are feeling frustrated before it gets to boiling point take some stillness time. Disconnect so that you can reconnect fully back into you daily life refreshed & recharged. Pull back, be the observer & really see what you need to action first.
Let me know how you go!
Love K xx
