There’s nothing like inspiring your creativity first thing in the morning. That’s why I recommend Morning Meditations to any one wants a solid way to encourage their creativity to thrive for the remainder of the day.
While you can meditate at any point in the day and still get benefits from it, there’s just something about first thing in the morning that really gets your juices flowing.
If you don’t already have a meditation practice, I highly recommend it.
The Two Best Morning Meditations
These are the two meditations I do every morning and that I recommend to all of my clients.They were created by law of attraction guru, Lilou Mace. I like her because she’s a bit kooky and has a very soothing voice.
By using these meditations consistently, I’ve created some amazing results.
The first one is the Quick and Effective Creative Visualization. This 4-minute meditation will get your creativity flowing and help you produce the results you want to achieve in your life faster than if you didn’t meditate. It’s all about the visualizing.
The next one is the Healing Meditation: Release Your Fears. You might not realize it, but fear is an ever-present factor in your life and often the driving force behind the things you do (or don’t do). This 7-minute meditation will help you release your fears and the other things that hold you back in life and keep you feeling “blocked” creatively.
I recommend doing them in this order, but see what you think first.
If you’re familiar with meditation, you may already have your own meditations that you do and that work for you. By all means, keep doing them. But if you’re feeling adventurous, give these two a try.
Here’s what I do (and recommend):
- Find a comfortable, quiet place in your house—for me, it’s my walk-in bedroom closet. For you it might be your home office or your kitchen or the room under the stairs.
- Grab a set of headphones and your iPhone/BlackBerry/Android/ETC phone that has internet access (and if your phone doesn’t have internet access, then you’ll have to meditate in front of your computer because these particular meditations are only available on YouTube).
- Sit up straight in a comfortable position. Close your eyes.
- Listen to the meditations, starting with the Quick Creative Visualization meditation and ending with the Healing Release Your Fears meditation (feel free to switch them around.)
- Go on with your day—yes, it’s really that simple. The results from your 10 minutes of meditating will follow you.
If You’re New to Meditation
If you’re new, here are some tips to help you along your way:
- Don’t Worry If You Wander—the first few times you try meditating, your mind will probably wander around. That’s OK. When you notice that you’ve wandered, just bring yourself back to the meditation by focusing on the voice and the words being said. After enough practice you’ll find your mind wanders less often and you’re able to concentrate more.
- Prepare for Lightheadedness—this doesn’t happen to everyone, but many first-time meditators feel a tad lightheaded when they first start meditating. This is because your body isn’t used to having so much oxygen flowing through it. Thanks to the deep breathing, meditations can help strengthen your lungs and also help your blood flow better.
