There is so much evidence to support the benefits of meditation – yet for years I couldn’t get myself to just sit down and do it. Or at least to do it consistently. Then a couple of years ago I finally read a book that had been sitting on my shelves for a while – Dr Joe Dispenza, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself. Actually, I think I had glanced through it before, but realised he talked about meditation, so quickly put it back on the book shelf. But finally my higher self had had enough and I decided to read it. It blew me away – it’s hard to sum up so I suggest if you haven’t read it, you go buy it or one of his other books.

I started his meditations soon after I started to feel energy through my body, and because these meditations train you to focus on space rather than matter, I found the meditations have enhanced my ability to feel energy. Everyone has their own healing journey, but for me they work incredibly well alongside the nutrition. Of course, it doesn’t need to be his meditations – any that resonate will do and your intuition will lead you to the right ones. But meditation is a really important part of the process and will work hand in hand with the nutritional changes you make.

You can start with as little as 5 minutes a day, but ultimately try to get to between 30 minutes and an hour. A lot of people find it works best in the morning, although for some reason I’ve always found this the hardest time, so tend to stick to late afternoon or evening. Whatever works for you!
