Embrace Difficulty Using the Power of Meditation

Embrace Difficulty Using the Power of Meditation

Uncertainty seems to be the name of the game lately. In the environment, in personal relationships, and the world at large, it seems there is less certainty than ever. Meditation can be a powerful tool to use when seeking to embrace difficulty in your life. Perhaps you want to become more grounded and more at peace. Whatever the reason, it helps to keep your mind, and heart, open to the possibilities.

Heart-opening Meditation

When the world seems a bit too crazy or life is being just plain difficult, meditation can be a great tool to surrender to the crazy swirling around you and focus inward. Start with asking yourself who you are, and in what ways difficulty in your life can be used as an opportunity to become better. When you fall in love with the challenges and embrace them, you are less likely to feel stressed when they do come your way. The following steps can help you continue on the journey of meditation:

  • Inhale the challenges in front of you and experience it in technicolor. See it before you like a visual.
  • Exhale, blowing with your mouth, pushing difficulty away and transmuting it into pure light. Surround yourself with light as you keep your eyes closed.
  • Do this 10 times for each problem you may be experiencing.
  • When you are done, feel yourself ready for a day that can bring anything your way.

Why it Works

When you trust in the process of meditation to bring you hope and light, it can truly be healing to surrender everything to the power of intuition. You have everything you need within yourself to guide yourself out of the challenges you face. Be prepared to embrace it with open arms and an open heart. Practice this meditation daily and prepare for becoming a more open, compassionate-hearted person. Challenges will come your way in recovery. The best thing you can do is learn some tools for how to navigate them when they fall on your doorstep. If you are struggling with meditation, you may want to try:

  • Finding quiet space during the morning or evening to meditate. Close your eyes for a few moments at first, rather than a long period of time.
  • Sit in a comfortable position for you. If it is easier to lie down, try that instead.
  • Be open and willing to change. If you are convinced no matter what is happening you are going to struggle with letting go of your challenges, you may never achieve the peace you need to feel at ease.
  • Meditation is all in the mind, but it is also in the body. If the body is tense, it may be hard to relax. Try to get the body to rest by pulling shoulders down and releasing your breath in, then out, several times.
