2019, I have been waiting for you to arrive since…. last March….
Fresh starts have always been what I live for. No matter what happens in my life, I know I can look forward to a new day, a new week, a new book, a New Moon. And it’s like the past never happened.
One practice that I was really terrible at sticking to in 2018 was meditation. In 2017, I was great at it! I woke up every morning, meditated, journaled and hit the gym.
Then life got crazy and I lost that habit and shortly after, I lost my peace of mind. Regardless, I fully intend on making meditation my priority. I’m getting back to WooSahhing.
If you are new to meditation, this is a great place to start. With the help of an amazing app called Simple Habit, here are the meditations I brought into 2019
Connect to Abundance by Julie Seibt
We can all use more abundance in our life, and it isn’t always money we need an abundance of. This meditation is great for helping you open the door for all types of abundances.
“Attract and receive abundance in health, relationships, finances and opportunity. In this practice, recognize and connect to abundance that is already present, explore obstacles that prevent you from giving and receiving more fully. You will learn to invite, receive and embody abundance as part of the natural flow of life”
Bath Meditation by Kate James
I tend to get distracted in the bath, but this helps me to be mindful and present. It is amazing for winding down at the end of a long day.
“A warm bath is the perfect way to relax and relive stress. Meditate while immersing your body in hot water to soften any tension.”
Bedtime Relaxation with Amer Khan
It can be difficult to turn our mind off at night. This is great for doing just that.
“Let worries about work or your day fall away. Use this meditation to help you sink into ultimate relaxation for sleep.”
Resilience for Women by Shalini Bahl (7 Part Series)
We as women are so strong, we keep our families grounded while juggling career or hobbies. Sometimes we need a pick me up.
“This is a meditation series created for women by a woman. In this series, you will build skills to deal with different challenges. Explore different mindfulness practices that are foundational for developing confidence, resilience and ease.
For Women in the Workplace by Shalini Bahl (7 Part Series)
I already know we all need this one.
“In this series, develop the 7 essential mindfulness skills to overcome stereotypes, lead from within, and shine.
Women often confront incompatible expectations with respect to their leadership roles and gender roles. Research shows that mindfulness is one way for us women to overcome gender stereotypes and inconsistencies. Mindful women leaders are perceived to be more genuine and trustworthy. And most importantly, mindfulness makes us aware of how we perceive ourselves, so we can lead from a place of authenticity and unshakable confidence.”
Flow State by Holly Niemela
Having issues with blockages? Get ready to welcome the state of flow.
“Being in a state of flow often helps us be more present, get more work done, and feel a sense of timelessness. Whether you’d like some inspiration for a creative project, or are preparing for a few hours of deep work, this meditation will help you get into your flow state.”
I hope these meditations are what you are needing for a happy and healthy year/ life.
