A Coaching Power Tool created by Dawn Weaver
(Life Coach, UNITED STATES)
Meditation serves as a way to bring your attention and focus in a calm and relaxed manner to the present moment.
Through an intention to become aware of your body and breath your mind calms and your energy shifts to the only moment you have available to you, which is NOW. As you bring your attention inward and intentionally relax your body you begin to gain a sense of peace and clarity. This peace and clarity is the space that is created for fresh ideas, a renewed sense of energy and a connection to Self.
Meditation brings the body into a state of deep relaxation and provides the tools and resources needed to deal with stress.
As the body and mind learn to relax, the mind will calm down and the body experiences a state of tranquility. Meditation has a profound effect on our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. Whether the issues you face are linked to any or all of these areas everyone can benefit from daily meditation. Meditation can increase your emotional stability by providing clarity and calm in just a few minutes a day. The effects of this practice build over time, but you may notice a sense of calm, quiet and peace almost immediately.
This power tool has the ability to change your life from the inside out.
In a scattered and anxious state thoughts run rampant, the body is rigid and full of tension and the present moment gets put on automatic pilot rather than embraced, felt and enjoyed as the gift it is meant to be. When we are scattered our energy tends to get pulled in different directions and we lose the ability to fully give of ourselves. Our minds can only focus on one thing at a time. As we force our body and mind to go in different directions simultaneously we forget why we even walked into a room, we have a conversation with a friend or loved one and don’t remember it later, we misplace things, pay the wrong bill and a list of other mishaps.
This is all because we allow our attention to be spread out like a ray in all directions without intention and clarity on what it is we want to happen and who we want to be inside of circumstance.
A new perspective can enable one to view their life with new eyes. Whether you are challenged by relationships, or issues of a regretful past or fear of the future meditation allows you an opportunity to set aside scattered and unproductive thoughts that do not serve you and gain new perspective.
The first step is to discover your current emotional or physical state and how you are reacting to the situation. The second step is deciding to become present to the moment with peace and calm and clarity. This allows a moving forward into the current circumstance with a new way of being.
- How are you feeling inside of your life at this moment?
- Is this feeling serving you?
- How would you like to feel – calmer, more centered, more in control of your emotions?
- Which state of mind would better serve you?
- Are you willing to go inward to reach that particular state of emotional stability?
