20 Oct Getting Good at Life Through Meditation | Emily Fletcher
You don’t have to be a monk to meditate. A common misconception is that you have to be some sort of spiritual guru to get anything out of meditation. This is simply not true. Meditating is a way to tap into your inner self. We meditate to get good at life, not to get good at meditation.
WELCOME TO THE DARIN OLIEN SHOW
Emily Fletcher has taught over 40,000 people to meditate. And she can teach you.
As the founder of Ziva Meditation, Emily Fletcher has taught thousands of people how to meditate in ways that work for them. Besides being an expert in the art of meditation, Emily is also a best-selling author, sought-after speaker and a mother.
The Ziva method focuses on the three Ms: mindfulness, meditation and manifesting. Emily believes that learning how to meditate is an individual process and should be tailored to your wants and needs. I’ve been meditating now for several decades, but recently have felt a little stuck. This conversation couldn’t have come at a better time because I needed a little guidance to get me back on the right track. And there is no one better on the planet to give me that kind of navigation than Emily.
We could have gone on for hours. There’s so much to take away from this conversation. We touched on what made Emily fall in love with meditation, where it led her on her life’s journey and why she is so passionate about sharing it with others. She broke down why she considers meditation “tapping into your internal pharmacy.” And she explains why your version of meditation doesn’t have to look like anyone else’s version. Now, more than ever, we need to begin trusting ourselves again. We have to look past the fear, anxiety and restlessness and go back inside. And Emily is the perfect person to help us get there. So keep an open mind, take a deep calming breath and enjoy this incredible conversation.
