Meditations for Mindset

by Jacqueline Muller, LCSW-R

Sometimes you need to create the space to improve your mindset. Meditation is one way to create that space.

When beginning a practices of any kind start off with a small amount of time and build as you become better at it. This is why we call it a practice. It takes time to develop a skill. Mediation practice takes time.

We live in a world of frequent distractions that divert us from being aware at times of what is going in in our mind. Our mindset is key to our success. More often than not what runs through our mind is the voices of past people, disappointments of others short comings, or perhaps our own flawed experiences. Having such a grim filter, can create a negativity that colors how we live life in the present and can also divert us from achieving what we were meant to achieve in our life.

With a clear, positive mindset anything becomes possible. Developing that realign you to your primary purpose; to become the light you were meant to be in the world for those around you and those who’s lives you touch.

Start today. Take a minute or two and breath prosperity into the days ahead.
