I have a confession to make. Please don’t judge.
I can’t meditate.
Do you have any idea how much this fact stresses me out? All I can think about is how I should be meditating to deal with the stress of not being able to meditate.
Believe me I have tried. As an avid yoga practitioner since high school I very clearly understand the benefits. Have you ever seen Susan Piver speak? I sat at a conference once and watched her calm, centered, glowing beauty and thought… why can’t that be me?!!! The benefits of meditation just ooze out of Susan’s presence. I very optimistically grabbed her book and swore to myself that this was it. I was going to go through every one of the guided mediations in that book and I was going to be just like her. I read the first chapter (her own contribution) and absolutely loved it. I sat down with every intention of doing the first guided meditation practice every day for a week, got frustrated after 2 minutes of sitting there not doing anything and that was it.
Not that I’m giving up or anything. Each member of my family was permitted one carry-on suitcase for this year-long European arm of our life’s adventure, and I used a piece of that valuable space for Susan’s Book. It’s sitting on my bedside table in my Italian bedroom as we speak.
So I decide I needed baby-steps. I have found a way of easing myself in to the very scary, being in the moment stillness of meditation. It is a simple little exercise that takes just a few minutes that I have committed to making a daily practice.
*Photo by me…proof that Susan’s book is with me still.
