How to Create a Relationship with Meditation

Author’s hands

To be able to find me, my creative expression, my truth, I have relied on meditation.

The two are interdependent as they are dependent actions. Meditation is an activity. It is a way. It is a road long traveled, but one where you might not get from where you are to where you wish to be. Meditation takes you places, and yet you find yourself never arriving.

AND WHY IS THAT?

We’re so focused on the points along the road, the dials, the measurements, and the markers we forget about the way. If we are asking for a way that will help take us to where we metaphysically, spiritually, or psychologically need to be, and if meditation is perhaps one of those ways, how then can we create a more meaningful relationship with it? And why bother if we never arrive?

WHERE IS IT THAT WE SO DESPERATELY FEEL WE NEED TO BE?

Honestly, I don’t mind wandering. I love the nomadic soul-searching journey that takes me to new places, new towns, new relationships, new houses, and new companions. No, I’m not an unsettled soul. I’m simply a wanderer.

This, I will tell you, took me many years to understand and many new roads to travel down before I began to appreciate the nomad in myself. I am a piece of sagebrush, and more times than not I let the wind take me.

I don’t mind the journey. Sure, I would be lying to myself and to you if I told you milestones and markers weren’t important. I travel to those markers, the days and years of my life, but in this quest to understand myself, and by using meditation, I don’t rely on those markers as true markers. They are simply placeholders in time. I may go from point A to point B, and I may be able to mark this part of my journey complete, but as soon as I arrive at point B I usually realize there is a C, a D, and an E to find.

IF YOU COULD, WOULD YOU TRAVEL BEYOND THE BOUNDARIES OF TIME?

I travel, metaphorically speaking, to unearth myself by traveling across time and not through time. I travel beyond the boundaries of time. Traveling beyond the boundaries of time allows you the freedom to never arrive and to never stop yourself from trying.

You just keep going.

Learning. Growing. Acknowledging. Trusting. Trying.

Meditation is an activity. It is a way. It is a road long traveled.

I’d like to offer you an experience, that should you be so inclined, you may want to try.

If you’ve ever found yourself thwarted by meditation ask yourself- why?

Was it too boring? Too underwhelming? Too complex? Too rigid? Too New Age?

I’ll let you fill in the blank. And if you haven’t tried it in awhile, or ever, I’d like to offer you that opportunity. I’m here to help.

I won’t promise you that you’ll have a change of heart, but I’d like to be there to help you find your inner self, your creative expression, and your creative voice through mindfulness. If there is one thing available to all of us it is this. Creative Expression.

YOUR JOURNEY WILL BE UNIQUELY YOURS, AND I HONOR THAT, AS MINE WILL BE UNIQUELY MINE.

But should you find yourself curious, or you’re a seasoned meditator who’d like to boost your confidence, I’m here. It’s been years of study, years of exploration, and years of a few hard knocks that has put me here to offer this help.

Please join me in my Guided Meditation Series.

This series is structured for the beginner as well as for the most experienced meditator because through these guided meditations, which I have written, you will be free to go where you wish to go. I offer this guided meditation series as a free resource to you.

I am only here to offer a helping hand as you find your own way, your own creative expression.
