The good and the bad are part of the fabric of life. So how do we navigate this uncomfortable fact without so much suffering? Mindfulness and meditation have a big role in allowing us to ride the roller coaster of existence without picking up so many scars.
Firstly, many meditation practices are relaxing (although not all are!) so after things have got scary, we can wind down and let our body repair itself after the waves of stress hormones that we have been awash with. Our biology is not able to maintain itself in under stress because our resources are focused on fight or flight. So activating repair and digest biology (the parasympathetic nervous system) is a very healthy choice. Your body will be trying to do this anyway by making you exhausted. Go with it and do it deliberately.
Secondly, regular meditators are slightly better equipped to handle reality. This sounds questionable but let me explain. The gifts of regular meditation practice are many, and include better understanding of our own faults, triggers, blind spots and wounds we have not healed. All these things mean we know when any particular issue is gonna hurt most. Fore warned is fore armed. Regular meditators are more aware of when our wonderful creative mind wanders into a terrifying future scenario and scares the hell out of us with something that isn’t real. Likewise, when our mind wanders to a painful past memory that is a bit like the current pressure, we can be convinced we will get a similar painful outcome and, in our innocence, we step towards this painful outcome by expecting it.
You can use a meditation like the one linked below that allows us to practice being ok with what is happening. Granted, there are times when it is not appropriate to be ok with what is, abuse and hatred, for example. But much of the time we resist going with the flow because a small part of it is not to our liking, forgetting all the many other good things in our lives. I lead regular meditation and mindful movement classes where we practice the skills necessary to know polarity is part of the deal and manage it with more ease.

THE POWER OF INSPIRATION
What inspires you? Inspiration is a powerful feeling, we are connected to motivation, that we can succeed in an ambition, we are able to overcome obstacles and that our efforts are worthwhile and rewarded. That’s powerful stuff!
So lets choose to tap into it. If you feel lack-luster and weary, find out if a dose of inspiration is exactly what you need. When we live more intentional lives, we recognise that its at least worth a go. Run the experiment! See how you feel when you find something that inspires you. Maybe we need a list of things that inspire us as well as a list of self-care activities. I love that the word itself comes from the breath; as you inhale, so you are inspired.
Choose to get an inspirational lift today! Don’t wait to fall over it, go find it!
Here are some ideas that inspire me, I’d love to hear yours and we can inspire each other.
Positive News (positivenews.com), TED talks, anything from Eckharte Tolle, The Beatles, Dr Joe Dispenza, Professor Nassim Haramein.
I painted the quote from Terence McKenna on my wall in a flurry of inspiration, its still empowering me.

Looking for Our Character Defects
You may have heard about human bias, the tendency for humans to see things from a certain point of view and be utterly convinced that they are correct, that other viewpoints are wrong and stupid. For example, we tend to rate emotional motivation more than logic, however rational we think ourselves to be. Advertisers have been working this one a long time – ‘look how happy these people are using our product’. And in general, we fear potential loss more than potential gain, scientists have been observing betting games a long time and this one keeps us stuck in our familiar zone.
What is interesting is that these biases are unconscious, we don’t know we have them. We don’t notice when they shape our decisions, and we can’t challenge that if we don’t know it’s happening. We call them right and wrong like there was some immutable law of the Universe that carved them out of stone. We tend to be very attached to the values we hold. Of course we are. If someone helpfully tried to explain your flaws to you, you’d tell them to push off. Sadly, those around you probably have a much better idea of your flaws than you do, and vice versa, and it’s likely the cause of many arguments.
We are hopelessly biased in all sorts of ways and blind to our flaws. What’s a person to do? Three things:
1. Meditate. Repeated concentration on your thought processes makes those thought processes known. You’ll start to recognise that is this situation I behave in a certain way that I don’t like now I’m looking at it more carefully. I have a belief or bias that becomes visible in a specific situation. It will become increasingly obvious that this particular place, person or thing (which is different for each of us) is a major trigger for me and makes me want to curl up and die, or fight, or whatever. It may not actually be happening at all, but our imagination makes it so vivid it doesn’t matter. Make it conscious and you give yourself the power to choose.
2. Use the Scissors of Revision: given the exact same situation again, how would I have liked to have behaved? We are highly unlikely to encounter exactly the same set of circumstances, but it is very useful because we can decide how our more aware self would like to have acted and we can perhaps put down the endless self-criticism that we did it badly. Picture the ideal you going through the ideal response and park it.
3. Be kind. I’m flawed, you’re flawed, we are all daft from time to time and in specific ways. Let’s go a bit easier on others and ourselves.
