I love how these meditations get me focused. I have so much energy on a regular basis and I do need to get better at focusing it. Not letting the energy dissipate into every which direction, but to harness it in such a way where I can artfully direct it towards achieving my goals.
Today I really wanted to get in touch with my being. One of the thoughts I had in my mind was that I wanted to “Find God.” I know that he’s real and I have felt his presence before, but as I was going through my mind images would pop up and I would want to go behind the curtain and see what was behind that thought. As I delved deeper I saw the images of the things I had exposed myself too this morning; Joe Montana interview where he was talking to NFL access about when he retired and other things. I remembered Tony Robbin’s saying from a video that his mentor Jim Rohn told him, “Guard your mind.” And as this thought crossed my head I saw everything that I saw on the computer this morning and how the images were just floating around in my mind. I saw how the article from getrichslowly.org that I read this morning on the scarcity mindset was influencing my thought on thinking long term. It addresses complexities no doubt, but it was such a simply written article that I enjoyed reading. It got me thinking how easily my mind absorbs things. It’s amazing how quickly I can do it. I don’t expect images to capture my mind so quickly and constantly float around the way they do.
I’ve been listening a lot to Tony Robbins lately because its very applicable to what I do. In helping others clean up there habits I undoubtedly have started to look at mine. I’ve been seeing areas that I lack in follow through. I’ve also been able to see where my strengths are.

Is it possible that the mind transfers thoughts back and forth unconsciously? Can I be so sensitive to someone else’s needs or insecurities that I pick them up without even realizing it? This is the thought that came to mind this morning as I was meditating and realizing that a lot that was operating inside of me was Priya’s jealousy episode this morning. I had thoughts of my own this morning, but what she said was definitely on my mind. I wanted to push through those thoughts and get in touch with my own, but it wasn’t happening that easily. The thoughts of what we had spoken about this morning floated along in my head like a cloud in the sky. Which bring me to another question, “Are thoughts actual physical manifestations?” Is there a physicalness to them or is my imagination simply just something that I can see but not touch? It’s tough to say. The mind can be such a tricky thing. I wanted to do my meditation longer than the ten minutes I did it this morning. I felt like I was really just getting into it.
I meditated for another 10 minutes and loved it. I was getting more in tune with myself and sifting through the thoughts of what I need to do today. I was thinking about Brianne waving to me when I was working out with a prospective new client. I was thinking about my prospective client saying no she couldn’t afford training right now due to financial constraints. I remember her sitting there looking at the screen debating how to pay for the training and then me just sitting there in silence waiting for her to make a decision. I remember Tony and I sitting down talking at the desk and seeing him take a drink of water from his huge crystal geyser plastic container. I remember thinking, “That thing is massive.” It was a good session today and I’m looking forward to the next one. It feels like every time I’ve done some meditation since Sunday the 15th, I’ve taken something from it. Becoming more aware is what I took from today. I’m glad to start this ritual.
