The answers aren't out there. Sure, you can find knowledge, guidance, skills, entertainment, distraction ...
But the real answers, the ones that matter, are inside of you . They're found in stillness. For some reason, it's easier to take another training, get another certification, read another book, or listen to another expert than it is to get still.
Many people have wonderful things to offer. But get clear on what it is you want and need, or you'll be filling your inbox, your social media feeds, and your mind with a string of constant distractions.
What if you filtered the noise and got clear on what matters to you? What if instead of living from the outside in, you lived from the inside out.
No one else has your answers. This doesn't mean that you go alone. This means that you surround yourself with people that support you and empower you. This means that you choose teachers that share tools and walk alongside you on the journey to your own wisdom and intuition.
Imagine living with passion and purpose, energized and contributing to the world in a way that feeds your soul and makes your heart soar.
Filter the noise. Turn inward. Connect to the essence of who you are, the truest you. Seek the stillness, and live from there.
There are few things that I recommend more often than Insight Timer. It's a popular and free meditation app that features high-quality content from gifted and passionate teachers.
Where to start?
Insight Timer has a wonderful and free course for an introduction to meditation. It's simple, powerful, and calming, and it features one of my favorite teachers in the app, Sarah Blondin.
I found Jennifer Piercy during a particularly stressful time, and she was a lifesaver. She regularly helped me to fall back to sleep in the middle of the night when I could not settle the mind chatter on my own. Try her Yoga Nidra for Sleep session.
Insight Timer is a company with a noteworthy mission.
If you enjoy the app, consider becoming a premium subscriber. There's a free 7 day trial for Insight Premium, and after that, it's available for $60/year or $10/month. The benefits are fantastic and include useful features like unlimited courses, offline listening, and night mode which gives you the option for a dark screen so that you don't light up the whole room if you use it during the night.
There are thousands of meditations to choose from with or without the premium content. They also have an extensive music library and a customizable timer if you prefer to meditate without being guided.
There are so many benefits to a consistent meditation practice. Find a time that works well for you, and start with 5 or 10 minutes a day. You can do this!
It might seem inconsequential right now, but how you treat yourself today, tomorrow, the next day, it determines who you will be in a week, a month, a year, a decade.
