How to use meditation and mindful breathing to sleep better

Dear Creatrix,

Do you feel more peaceful after the last lesson?

What came up for you? Do you have any thoughts about your personal journey to inner peace?

If so, I’d love to hear them. You may leave a comment below, email me, or post about your thoughts and experiences in our private Facebook Group.

It feels like we’ve already covered a lot of ground, in these past lessons, when it comes to rest and relaxation (and why we don’t do it enough).

What, I think, is most important here, on this journey to self-actualization, to being your best self, or to becoming the relaxed, loved and loving, creative and thriving qu_ing, the person you were always meant to be, is that we really have to begin to value ourselves.

You are the most important person in your life.

You are your life, and you create and shape and live it every day.

Can you say it?

Can you say: “I am the most important person in my life.”? And then, if you can, say it again looking at yourself in the mirror.

And if you are really advanced, you can also say looking at yourself: “You are the most important person in my life and I love you, and I promise, every day, from now on, I will take very good care of you.”

And then tell me about the tears that come up.

Repeat this for as long as you wish to, and come back to this anytime. It’ll be a practice for the rest of our lives. The saying and the doing.

But we deserve nothing less.

Allowing for inner peace to become the basis, the grounding of our lives, overcoming internal struggles and self-rejection, is a great goal to have and something to work towards with every thought, every action, every interaction from now on and always.

But there are more things we can do to support this, and ourselves.

We’ve already spoken about meditation last week, but I thought it would be more important to get in touch with your needs and explore our new ritual first, before we set up a meditation practice, but we’ll start this today.

And I’ll also share a mindful breathing method with you today, which has shown to be incredibly effective for anyone who aims to have better concentration and memory, and another breathing technique that can help to calm the nervous system in any stressful situation.
