Last Saturday night I attended a workshop hosted by Barbara. Let me tell you, she is awesome at what she does. She is an awesome soul and is so easy to listen to. I went to this workshop without any expectations. I didn’t not know what was going to happen, which is totally out of my comfort zone. I arrived there and my heart was racing, and I was nervous! Here I am walking into this place with a yoga mat and a bottle of water. I’m even thinking now, this isn’t me. I never use a yoga mat. I knew I had to do this, I kept being pushed and I never hesitated going. As I walk in I am directed on where to go. I place my mat down and took a seat. There were not that many people there yet since you know I had to arrive early.
I sat and waited, still nervous and my anxiety was high, but I felt calm at the same time. I sat and waited, and we started. We went around the room and introduced ourselves. Turns out I was the only male there for a specific reason. There were two other guys there just there for the experience. I knew I was there for more than that. I knew that this was going to start to change my life, even though I was super nervous.
The Mediation started and WOW. Emotions start going and all the shit I was dealing with at the moment was being released. It was an amazing experience. I left there in awe, I texted my wife that I was on my way home. As I got home she asked how it went and I honestly couldn’t put it into words. I was speechless. I was speechless because I have put this meditation thing off for so long. Imagine if I would have started it sooner in life. It is what it is and now I’m here.
The biggest takeaway for me is being grounded and protecting myself. There is so much energy around and I am a person who can sense it and consume it. Meditation is not something that will fix your problems. We are all human, we have to solve our problems our own way. Mediation is a way to make you realize what you are holding onto and can let it go with practice. I’m definitely looking forward to what the next weeks have in store for me. Did you mediate today?
