The women I work with have often spent a lifetime on professional and personal development. They strive to extend their skills and broaden their understanding of the world and their place in it. 

One such client is an extraordinary woman who has built a successful career in real estate over fourteen years before starting her own business five years ago. As someone who thrives when learning, she was always highly motivated and constantly seeking resources to build her knowledge both professionally and personally.

Though she was very active in her mission to broaden her knowledge and find deeper meaning in the life she loved, it wasn’t until she connected with me, and my Playing Bigger Play Beautiful community, that a real shift happened.

When I asked her what she felt she had gained from working with me, she said this:

“Honestly, it’s a whole new me. I have been telling people ‘I have started meditating and it’s just a magnificent experience. I have been taken on a journey with you, Deb. I actually thought I could not meditate and sometimes in my industry it can be seen as ‘woo woo’ but this is not at all! You also give us permission to not have to be this perfect meditator which takes the pressure off.’

So what does it mean to embark upon perfectly imperfect meditation? It means that when your mind wanders to your to-do list, you gently bring it back to your practice. It means acknowledging and honouring your intentions, rather than the outcome. Those who are able to extend to themselves the same kindness and understanding that they would extend to others can attain the freedom to observe their meditation practice, rather than scrutinise it.

Most of us are now aware that meditation is far from ‘woo woo’ as my client puts it. In fact, meditation offers a wide range of physical, mental, and emotional benefits. 

Here are some of the key reasons why meditation is considered beneficial:

  • Stress Reduction: Meditation helps activate the body’s relaxation response, reducing the production of stress hormones and promoting a sense of calm.
  • Improved Focus and Concentration: Regular meditation practice has been shown to enhance cognitive abilities, including attention, concentration and the ability to stay focused on tasks.
  • Emotional Well-being: Meditation can contribute to emotional balance by reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression. It promotes a more positive outlook on life and helps individuals better manage their emotions.
  • Enhanced Self-Awareness: Meditation encourages self-reflection and introspection, leading to increased self-awareness. This awareness can help individuals better understand their thoughts and emotions, leading to personal growth.
  • Better Sleep: Meditation can improve the quality of sleep by relaxing the mind and reducing stress. This can be particularly helpful for those dealing with insomnia or other sleep-related issues. I’m looking at you, perimenopause and menopause!
  • Pain: Meditation has been shown to help people cope with chronic pain. By changing the perception of pain, individuals may experience reduced discomfort.
  • Lower Blood Pressure: Meditation has been associated with lower blood pressure levels. The relaxation response induced by meditation can even contribute to improved cardiovascular health.
  • Mind-Body Connection: Meditation emphasises the connection between the mind and body. This holistic approach can lead to a greater sense of overall well-being and improved physical health.
  • Enhanced Creativity: Meditation has been linked to increased creativity and problem-solving skills. It allows the mind to explore new ideas and perspectives, fostering innovation.

The benefits of meditation can vary from person to person, of course, but I am continually astounded by the massive impact a small amount of regular meditation can make. And one of my favourite benefits is using our daily lives and careers as an avenue to put into practice the awarenesses and shifts that we experience during formal meditation. 

Big Love,
