Make May Meditation Month

meditation monthA while ago, I had written a mindfulness mantra, and the meditation process listed below. Many reported that they found both to be very helpful. Meditation is also discussed on Day 4 of my 21 Day personal development guide.

No better time than the present to get started or recharge the habit. Candles and soft music are optional but are wonderful accompaniments!


  • Find a quiet and peaceful place where you won’t be disturbed.
  • Close your eyes and take several deep breaths.
  • Breathe in good thoughts, soothing images, and peaceful outcomes.
  • Breathe out tension, stress, anxiety and fear.
  • Select a positive statement or series of statements such as, “I love my life,” “All is well,” or “Everything works out for my highest good.”
  • Introduce those affirmations while you visualize a ball of light entering the top of your head and traveling down to the tips of your toes, spreading a healing energy throughout your body.
  • Repeat this as many times as you need to clear away any unhelpful thoughts, or projections that cause an internal disturbance.

Mindfulness Mantra

I am generous, I am kind,

and in complete control of my mind.

When negative thoughts try to lead me astray,

I focus on blessings I live with each day.

So grateful for choices, love, joy, and peace,

through prayer and meditation, these can only increase.

— Cathie Barash

Listen to Your Inner Guidance


Doreen Virtue, holds a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees in counseling psychology, and is the author of more than 20 books.

She shares a wealth of wonderful information in this video clip regarding affirmations, visualizations, prayer and following our inner guidance.

She explains that once we surrender control and get clear about what we want, the Universe provides an inner road map of what actions to take in the form of gut feelings, visions, signs etc.

For example, we may feel moved to write a letter, make a phone call, sign up for a class or other relevant actions toward our dreams.

The examples she provides from her own life, gives a clearer understanding of how this whole process works.
