We are in the midst of the biggest crisis of our times. There is great uncertainty in our world and the challenge is to have a strong centre that lets you navigate these times.
You cannot rely on outside events to give you a feeling of calm. You have to find tools that help you build your centre of inner strength, so you feel you can handle what life may throw at you.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer sixteen years ago, I felt that my life was falling apart. My son was only 16 and I was going through a separation with my husband at the time.
I felt quite desperate. I heard about a meditation class and decided to try it out.
I’ll be honest – I didn’t find it easy. My mind was very busy and I struggled to switch off.
I kept going because I needed to find an inner strength that gave me hope that I would survive my illness and live.
Gradually I became a stronger person. The overwhelming fear I had fell away. I became calm.
Sixteen years later, I live a full and healthy life with a busy diary of clients in my Medical Coaching practice.
You may not be in such an extreme place as I was but I know that meditation will help to handle outside stress.
A sort and simple meditation will be available soon.
