Biggest Misconception of Meditation

What is the biggest misconception of Meditation? Can only people who believe in a higher power Meditate? These are some of the questions that I would like to address.

The biggest misconception about Meditation is that you must be spiritual, practice a religion and or believe in God. This is simply not true. I define Meditation as making a choice to focus your mind on something.

It doesn’t require faith to choose to focus on getting healthier and eating better food. You don’t need to go to church every Sunday to choose to live a happier life. Choosing to let go of all stress doesn’t mean you have to change your beliefs.

I am not saying anything negative about Religion, Faith or Spirituality. I, myself, believe in a higher power and I believe in God, but I am letting you know that it’s not a requirement for Meditation to work for you. Meditation is non-biased, impartial, open to whatever you believe in.

Allow this knowledge to sink in. Ask yourself how it makes you feel. But take action and please try Meditation for yourself. I have plenty of 2 Minute Meditations on my YouTube channel if you don’t have time, or can’t sit still for too long.

Presenting Meditation to the Healthcare Industry

This past weekend I got to attend a healthcare conference and do a presentation on meditation.  It was rightly labeled as healthcare meets burning man as there were fire dancers, camping and the over all energy was one of strength, unity and action.  The event was called Cinderblocks with the hashtag #Cinderblocks2 During the first day of the event, I was blessed and honored to do a speech on how meditation can be used in everyday life for health purposes.

The talk was done in front of doctors, patients, healthcare professionals and pharmaceutical representatives.  It was focused to the practice of mindfulness meditation and some of the benefits that come along with it.  I was filled with joy as one of them actually came up and said how excited he was to begin using it as a daily practice, or discipline as he liked to say.

The event was spearheaded by an amazing healthcare advocate who has been called the “Rosa Parks of healthcare”.  Her name is Regina Holliday (@ReginaHolliday on Twitter).

Without any further ado, please enjoy this presentation!  If you like what you hear and want to start getting into a meditation practice, but don’t know where to start, schedule a session with me and I can help you!
