I'm Full of Emptiness (and that's a Good Thing)!

Updated: May 23, 2023

This meditation never seems to stop giving!

Who would have thought that two years ago I was ready to completely give up on life! I was filled with suffering, stress, and burdens. Without going into too much detail, I got sick and many things fell apart in my life. I had somehow believed that nothing this bad could happen to me, given my relentless work ethic and determination. But of course, I'm only human! I was filled with sadness and anger about things that didn't go my way. I held on to many things like resentment and blame for the things that didn't turn out as expected in life.

Does meditation help to cure mental pain? Easy meditation.

Many of us have similar problems and experiences in life that leave us burnt out, depressed, or frustrated with what's happening. How do we deal with this? Honestly, I had no idea even though I had truly tried everything! I searched everywhere for 100% satisfaction, but no matter how hard I worked, I couldn't make it last! I couldn't understand why things were this way. Why couldn't I just make things work out? All my old tricks and techniques had failed me!

I apprehensively started meditation out of desperation. It was rather reluctantly that I wrote an email to Stockholm Meditation in the spring of 2021. To be honest, I didn't believe their meditation could help me to a great extent. As a yoga teacher and also a school teacher, I wasn't exactly a beginner. I had read many books on mental health and yoga, and participated in retreats to purify the mind. Regardless of how many credentials or certificates I obtained, it still didn't help me! As you can see, I am far from lazy! I had worked like crazy and I was exhausted from it all.

Anyway, I decided to give meditation a chance. I met with a guide on Zoom, and he seemed nice enough. I held nothing back from him because I no longer had anything to lose. I wanted to change my whole life! The guide told me about the 8-step method that helps us let go of all the "stuff" we cling to in our lives. Each step is necessary to cleanse our minds from pain and stress. I had heard a lot about letting go, especially in yoga classes. I mean, who doesn't know the idea of letting go, right? How hard could it be?

However, it's not that easy for many of us to truly let go of what we hold onto in our human minds! I mean, most of us can't even let go of our material possessions! We cling to all sorts of things that we actually believe define us! Of course, we can intellectually understand that material items are not who we are, but despite that, we constantly use them to define our lives, willingly or unwillingly. We are slaves to our stuff, just as we are to our ideas and concepts! Meditation is the journey of transformation from the false self to becoming truth, and it is truly great!

Deal with hardships. Feel better. Meditation for beginners.

After just two short years, I have become a new person! I am no longer the person who reluctantly sent that email to the Meditation Center asking for help! In fact, I would say that I no longer recognize her. I remember how much suffering and pain she carried with her. I remember, and I feel compassion for her, but she is like a ghost.

As you can see, the method has completely changed my life, and the ghosts no longer reside within me. I'm still a work-in-progress, but that's the whole point! We are here to uncover our true nature and become one with the source! I am so grateful for this opportunity to discover the truth within me.

I can't recommend this meditation enough because it's truly amazing to feel freedom from within.

Happy meditation! 🌻🤗
