It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.

Why Meditation is Essential for Success

Sonia-Choquette-Why-Meditation-Essential-for-Success

Want Success? Meditation is Key.


Meditation is one of the key tools in manifesting your desires and achieving success. It quiets other voices, fears, emotions, and even relaxes your body so that you can focus on the voices, emotions, and thoughts that will lead to your success.


A lot of people think meditation is a very rigorous assignment. They think you have to learn how to go into an altered state. They quickly become overwhelmed and discouraged. Rather than having this negative mindset, I tell people to consider meditation like taking a visit to sit on God’s lap. You don’t have to do anything hard! To meditate is to allow yourself to go back to your spirit and rest.



Meditation for Guidance


Here’s a very good image for learning to meditate. Ever see a pilot light on a stove or fireplace? It’s a perpetual burning fire. You have that in your heart! I want you to imagine a scenario right now.


Close your eyes, breathe in and let out the tension in your body.


Then, relax and focus on the inner fire, the ever-burning pilot light inside you. The world is spinning around, but nothing intrudes upon that inner flame. It just burns peacefully and brightly and gets bigger with your breath. Do this for three or four minutes, just watching this pilot light and letting it amplify.


Do this exercise for a few minutes in the morning, afternoon, and at night. Once you get that quiet feeling, just ask your spirit, “What guidance do you have for me now?” Just listen with your heart and breathe.


If you get something, great. If not, don’t worry. You might get it later. Meditating simply opens a door for intuition to come in and puts you in a receptive state. You may not get an instant impulse, idea or feedback, but you’ll get it sometime.



Meditation for Feeling Good


Here’s another exercise. Imagine you’re fishing. Throw out the rod and reel in your desires. Your desires may be perfect love, a wonderful car, a magnificent home, a glorious job… whatever you want out of life.


Keep on imagining that you’re fishing, and every time you reel it in, your dream is a little more specific. Imagine the color of your wonderful dream car. How does it smell? What do the seats feel like? How do your hands feel on the wheel? Where will you drive it first?


The key here is to engage your feeling center so it feels good to you. We do not create in our thinking center. We create in our feeling center. We want to feel good. So, we meditate on feeling good.



Meditating for Enjoyment and Success


Soon, you will begin to enjoy your meditation sessions, and you won’t have difficulty getting started with each day’s meditation. Maybe you have trouble getting into a calm state. If you cannot slow down your life, at least start by slowing down your breathing. When we rush, we stop breathing— but if you just breathe, it stretches time and gives you the time you need to attend to things and support your heart and authentic self. It gives you the space to hear and feel your intuition. Check out my free preview course here https://guides.soniachoquette.net/fb-mini-course
