The weather this week in Ireland has been unusually sunny so I’ve been making the most of our Indian summer and shot a few guided meditations outdoors. Here’s one you can try, it’s short and sweet. What might a two minute meditation do for you? Well if you sit or lie down, switch off everything else, and listen …. you are likely to experience a range of immediate benefits including a boost of bliss, relished relaxation and an elevation of energy. Those are the things people often tell me they feel straight away. There’s other more long term things going on too like blood pressure normalising, hormones balancing (including stress hormones reducing and happy hormones increasing), deeper more refreshing sleep, less physical pain and an increase in compassion for yourself and others. That’s an pretty incredible list isn’t it!
After just a 3 minute meditation that I shared a women told me that her asthma improved beyond belief, another lady slept deeply for the first time in months since she lost a loved one and a Mum told me the next day that she didn’t shout at her kids getting ready for the school run. These results that are real and make not only a different to you but all of those around you.
Let me know how you get on with this meditation. What benefits are you feeling and noticing? If there’s a particular challenge in life, physical or emotional, that you are facing, get in touch and I’ll tailor a 2 minute meditation or holistic health video for you to post here.
