Meditation is not a big "voodoo" technique anymore, most Queens know it well and most Queens have tried it, at least once.
In fact, if you still have not tried meditation you are a little bit weird... However, trying and continuing with is kinda different, isn't it?
The most common argument of not continuing is: "Meditation does not work for me".
I assume it is time to be a little bit harsh here, Queen. Because this blog is not about throwing unicorn dust in the air...
Let's rephrase what this argument means in more deeper sense:
"You observing your thoughts does not work for you". Does not sound that appealing anymore, does it?
Truth is, meditation comes in various ways and forms. You choose that form yourself based on your own needs.
But there are many, ow many forms how you can do it. And, let's be really honest - you probably have tried only one or two. Hey, it is fine. Just let's continue the honesty ride.
And let's be real, magical-golden meditation that fits everyone does not exist. Just because it fits someone, does not mean it is gonna fit you.
But all meditations have one important thing in common - they all observe your thoughts without judgement.
Here is a Hiroshima bomb, Queen: meditation is not really about not thinking.
I know... take few minutes to take this in.
This is the biggest myth in our society.
But reality is reality. We are constantly thinking. We cannot learn ourselves not to think.
When you think about not wanting to think, you start thinking.
So no, this tactic is not going to work. This is not what meditation is trying to achieve at all.
