Meditation saved my life! Yes it's a bold statement, but it's also a true to my very bones statement.
As a you woman in my late teens very early twenties I was wild to say the least.
I was insecure and living a very toxic life.
Even though I was a mental health nurse (early in my career) and training to be a psychotherapist, I was digesting the information but not ingesting it. I was also only working from my head, put a band aid on an infected wound and hope it doesn't come back to bite you later...
But, one day a phone call from a dear friend with a message from a psychic changed everything!
A long story short, this led to me finding Buddhism and starting a journey of inner exploration through meditation, compassion and a lot of analysis!
I stopped simply digesting the information I was reading and went to work on ingesting all the juicy nutrients coming from everything I read and studying with my Buddhist teachers.
The rest is history... but here's the one truth to take away from this that i know to my heart. Meditation is the secret sauce that allowed this to happen.
Without it, everything is just surface level ego.
It changed my life, and i know it can change yours too.
