Getting the balance…

I was in the midst of a tough personal time – one of the hardest times in my life – when I first got introduced to meditation by a close friend.

The Power of TM Meditation: the greatest technique that I have ever learned..

I was in the midst of a tough personal time – one of the hardest times in my life – when I first got introduced to meditation by a close friend. I had a successful London west end PR agency, a young baby, a beautiful house and was at the top of my game.  Then suddenly things changed and my life turned upside down when my relationship suddenly faltered, I was left holding the baby, and my mother was diagnosed with cancer.  I sold my company, made changes in my personal life and juggled my family commitments which had been compromised by running a demanding job heading up a busy famous PR agency.  A friend of mine – an amputee who had her own troubles including dealing with cancer from the age of 12 – suggested that I learn TM meditation. She assured me this gave her great comfort through her difficult days when she was managing her health and extreme mobility difficulties. She gave me the card and number of her TM meditation teacher and left it in my kitchen.

My first thought was that this gentle technique would not be strong enough to help with what I was going through that was more dramatic, painful and difficult than anything I had experienced before in my life.  Something inside told me to give it a go anyway. I needed some help and any help would do at that point. I picked up the phone, dialled the number on the card and booked on to the next course to learn TM meditation.

I remember well the first TM meditation that I did.  It was like my brain was spinning with relief inside my head, like a roller coaster of letting go – it was a profound release in my head that felt like the pressure and steam that had built up over all my years of stress and busy living was being let go in a most profound sensation. I will never forget the relief of that first meditation I did at home.

I remember feeling deep inside that this technique was really going to make a difference to my life.  It did.  I have meditated regularly since – for 16 years. Now, I love it more than ever.  There are no complicated leg positions to learn or difficult breath techniques with this method. It’s a simple and really enjoyable process.

Within one week of starting to practice transcendental meditation, I met a man who was a soul mate, fell deeply in love and had an amazing relationship unfold. I met him in a different country and he was also a regular meditator.  My new business really took off and I began working closer with my good friend Paul McKenna on some mind-power projects.  This led me on a road to my destiny – meeting some extraordinary people and beginning on a track that was to become my passion and life’s mission.

Since then, I find that meditation is a way of life, central to what I do and part of my daily choices – as important as what I eat, where I go and who I spend time with. The research on the benefits of TM meditation is mind blowing.  Regular meditation certainly gives me more vitality, stamina and good health. It powers up problem-solving and creativity too.

It’s a simple, practical skill and one that’s easy to learn. If you haven’t tried TM meditation yet, you may want to consider giving it a go. You may find – like me – it’s the most profound life-changer you’ve ever found.
