We were recently asked to contribute to a blog post about mindfulness for Parks Candles of London, offering tips on getting started with meditation.
This is what Nikki said:
It is natural for people new to meditation to have preconceived ideas about what it is like, what is right or wrong, good or bad. Unfortunately, such expectations can result in us striving towards a goal, trying to make things the way we want them to be, getting frustrated and judging ourselves. Instead of doing this, allow yourself to put your expectations to one side and approach meditation with open-mindedness and curiosity, after all, your experience of meditation is unique to you and is also likely to change from meditation to meditation. You will find that this approach helps you to become less judgemental, more accepting and notice more about your experience of meditation.
