Hello I tried many things to get where I would like to be with mediation, I’ve tried music, that’s just another form of distraction. For eight years I went regularly to yoga classes at the end of the class we lade down and relaxed and I was always fighting to stay awake, embarrassing my sister by snoring.
Finally got the app Headspace it helped, but what I learned was some simple things, like I was trying to hard. Just let thoughts come and go, the more attention you give them the further you are from where you want to be. Most people think if they meditate something magical happens, it’s not happened to me. What I will say I love it, I get tied of my crazy mind it always seems to running at full speed and when I meditate it calms and I see my life from a different perspective.
