II. How to Meditate – a Simple Guide
There are multiple ways to meditate; I will cover everything you need to make a start. You’ll see that there is a crossover between some of them. You’ll find Google or Chat GPT are both your friend if you want to dive deeper into any of the types of meditation I’ve mentioned.
Some meditation asks that you sit with your feet flat on the floor and your back straight. Others ask that you lie down. When getting started, ensuring you are comfortable is the most important thing. As with all things, do what works for you. You’ll be able to meditate before you know it!!!

E. Mindfulness Meditation
Mindfulness meditation covers a variety of meditations that involve paying attention to the present moment with an open and non-judgmental attitude. It can include focusing on the breath, body sensations, or any other object of attention while also noticing when the mind wanders and gently bringing it back to the present moment.
Mindfulness meditation has its roots in Buddhism and has become increasingly popular in recent years as a secular practice for improving well-being and reducing stress. Some parts of the world offer it as part of the health service. For example some parts of the NHS in the UK.
One of the fundamental principles of mindfulness meditation is the idea of non-judgmental awareness. This means observing thoughts, emotions, and sensations without attaching any positive or negative value to them. By doing this, we can better understand and accept ourselves and our experiences, leading to increased self-awareness, self-compassion, and resilience.
You can do a whole course on Mindfulness where you’re likely to cover many of the following topics over several weeks;
- Understanding the concept of Mindfulness: The course may begin with an introduction to Mindfulness and its benefits.
- Mindful breathing: One of the core practices of mindfulness meditation is mindful breathing. The course may teach various techniques for mindful breathing, such as following the breath, counting breaths, square breathing, diaphragmatic breathing, and alternate nostril breathing.
- Body scan meditation: This practice involves bringing awareness to different parts of the body and noticing sensations without judgment.
- Mindful movement: Some mindfulness courses include mindful movement practices, such as yoga or walking meditation.
- Meditation posture: Proper meditation posture can help support the practice. The course may teach how to sit comfortably and maintain proper alignment during meditation.
- Mindful eating: Eating mindfully involves bringing attention to the experience of eating and noticing the taste, texture, and sensations of food.
- Cultivating self-compassion: Mindfulness meditation can also help cultivate self-compassion and reduce self-criticism. The course may teach practices for self-compassion and self-care.
- Group discussions: Many mindfulness courses include group discussions to share experiences, ask questions, and receive support from others.Overall, a mindfulness meditation course aims to teach individuals how to cultivate Mindfulness and integrate it into daily life.

K. Vipassana meditation
A type of meditation originating from the Buddhist tradition that focuses on the development of Mindfulness and concentration. The aim is to observe the present moment and gain insight into the nature of reality.
L. Transendental meditation
Transcendental meditation (TM) is a technique that involves repeating a mantra or sound to help the mind settle into a state of deep relaxation and inner peace. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi developed the method in the 1950s, and it gained popularity in the 1960s.
To learn TM, you need to find a certified TM teacher who will guide you through the process. Typically, instructors teach the TM technique in a series of four to six sessions, usually spacing them a few days apart. During these sessions, the teacher will choose a specific mantra for you based on various factors, such as your age and gender.
Once you have your mantra, the teacher will guide you in repeating it in a specific way that allows the mind to rest deeply. The technique is practised for 20 minutes twice daily while sitting comfortably with closed eyes.
M. Art & Creative endeavours
When you immerse yourself in art or a creative task, you enter a state of focused attention. Your mind becomes absorbed in the process, and this intense concentration becomes a form of meditation. Releasing judgment of your art is vital to fully experience the meditative benefits of engaging in creative activity. This open and non-judgmental approach to art enhances your creativity. It contributes to your overall well-being and personal growth through the meditative process.
III. How Meditation Helps You to Use Your Intuition to Manifest Your Goals and Attract an Abundance of All the Things You Want by Utilising The Law of Attraction
We are all manifesting all the time. Everything you see around you is a manifestation. If you will open your eyes and look, you can decide which things/experiences you like and want more of and which things/experiences you don’t like so much and would prefer less of. If you choose to temporarily suspend your scepticism and believe in magic, the magic of the universe, you too can turn your dreams into reality. When your heart is open, step by step, you can work your way towards the life you’ve always dreamed of. I genuinely believe this because I’ve watched it happen in my own life. I chose to open my heart to the possibility that you can manifest anything you want, that you really can make your dreams come true, and that to manifest something just takes a little consistent focus.
Meditation is a powerful tool that can help you attract abundance and manifest your dreams.
By quieting your mind and going within, you can tap into the unlimited potential of both yourself and the universe.
Through your ability to focus, meditation helps you raise your vibration. By letting go of negative thoughts, your vibration naturally rises, like a cork bobbing up to the surface when pushed underwater. This aligns you with the frequencies of your desires, making it easier for them to manifest in your life.
During some types of meditation, you visualize your desires with crystal clarity, imagining precisely what you can see, hear, taste, touch and smell once your desires are manifest. This allows the universe to pick up on those vibrations, match them and bring those experiences into your reality, yes, really!
The law of attraction states that like attracts like, so when you align yourself with positive thoughts and emotions about things you want, you’ll attract positive experiences and opportunities which will take you to the reality you’ve been wanting.
As you consistently practice meditation, you’ll discover that your goals and dreams become more vivid and achievable. Especially if you combine the practice with journaling!!! The reality you’ve always envisioned will begin to take shape, guiding you towards the path of accomplishing your goals and feeling more and more fulfilled. So sit back, relax, and let meditation be one of your gateways to manifesting the life you truly desire.
A. Activating the Subconscious Mind
Meditation can help you access and reprogram your subconscious beliefs.
The subconscious plays a major role in manifesting. Accessing and reprogramming the subconscious mind involves exploring the deepest layers of your mind to uncover hidden beliefs and patterns that may be holding you back. You attract what you believe to be true whether you want to or not, so discovering and re-programming unhelpful deep seated beliefs can turbo charge your conscious-creation and manifesting journey.
It’s about becoming aware of negative thoughts and limiting beliefs that have been ingrained in your subconscious and transforming them to align with what you truly want to attract and manifest in your life. You don’t need to dig around looking for them! Life will reflect to you when there’s something that needs shifting. Meditation gives you the time and space to allow them to arise ready for transformation.
Negative thoughts and limiting beliefs are often rooted in the subconscious mind, influencing your perception of yourself and the world around you. By accessing this level of the mind through practices like meditation, EFT, and hypnosis, you can shine a light on these until now, hidden aspects and bring them into conscious awareness.
Meditation lets unconscious insights surface as you sit with yourself, quiet the mind, and employ any of the previously mentioned techniques. You’ll observe limiting beliefs arise, and then you can do something about them!
Once you have identified these limiting beliefs, you can consciously work on reprogramming them. This can involve taking the reins of your inner voice and intentionally replacing negative thoughts with positive and empowering ones. My Lift-Off process is a great tool to allow this to happen. Check it out here. Other ways I’ve found really helpful are EFT, and journaling. By regularly scripting – repetitively affirming and visualizing your desired outcomes during journalling, you can gradually shift your subconscious programming to support your goals and aspirations.
Reprogramming the subconscious mind requires patience, consistency, and a compassionate approach towards yourself. It’s a process of gently challenging and transforming deeply ingrained beliefs, allowing you to create a new narrative that aligns with your highest potential and aspirations. This takes courage! You don’t have to do it alone. In my Free Facebook Group, we do live silent meditation every morning at 8 am Paris time. You can always join in on the replay if that time doesn’t suit you. Come on in and join us. We’d Love to have you.
B. Calming the Mind and Enhancing Focus
Meditation’s ability to calm the mind and enhance focus plays a crucial role in the manifestation process. When distractions, worries, and scattered thoughts clutter our minds, aligning with our intentions and focusing on what we truly want to manifest in a good-feeling way becomes challenging. This is where meditation becomes a powerful tool.
By practising meditation regularly, you learn to quiet the mind and cultivate a state of inner calm and stillness. This calmness lets you tap into your inner wisdom, intuition, and creative potential. It helps you to connect with your desires and intentions on a deeper level, free from the noise and chaos of everyday life, often called flow state.
When the mind is calm and focused, you can direct your attention and energy towards your vision, dreams and goals with greater clarity, attention and feeling. It’s finding the good feeling thoughts about your desires in the now, which allows them to manifest into your reality. It’s about tricking yourself into cultivating positive emotions in the present, envisioning the experience of having those things rather than dwelling on their current absence. You need to focus on the having of them, not your current reality of not having them! Meditation helps you to do that.
Meditation also boosts your ability to maintain focus and stay present in the moment. This focus is crucial when manifesting your desires because it allows you to visualize, affirm, and emotionally connect with your desired outcomes as though they were happening NOW. The universe responds and delivers you a match to what you are vibrating now, not what you think you’re vibrating, not what you want or know you’ll be vibrating in the future, but what you’re vibrating right now. The work is to spend as much time as you can vibrating (thinking and feeling) in the now, what you want to think, feel and experience in the future regardless of the evidence you’re seeing around you right now.
By regularly immersing ourselves in the present moment during meditation and being conscious of the things we create, we can cultivate a sense of unwavering belief and trust in the manifestation process.
Meditation helps you develop patience, resilience, and detachment from immediate results. It allows you to cultivate the ability to surrender to the flow of life and trust in the perfect timing of your manifestations. Through regular meditation practice, you’ll become more attuned to your inner guidance and, crucially, your ability to listen to and act upon it.
In conclusion, meditation is a powerful practice that can significantly enhance your ability to manifest your dreams and desires.
By calming the mind, improving focus, accessing the subconscious mind, and aligning with positive vibrations, meditation becomes a valuable tool in the manifestation process.
Through various meditation techniques such as Mindfulness, visualization, guided meditation, and more, you can cultivate a state of inner calm, tap into your intuition, and connect with your deepest aspirations. By quieting the noise and distractions of everyday life, you create a space for clarity and intentionality.
Meditation also helps you recognise negative thoughts or limiting beliefs that may hamper your manifestation journey. By consciously working to reprogram these beliefs and replace them with positive and empowering thoughts, you align your subconscious mind with your desired outcomes.
Additionally, meditation teaches patience, resilience, and detachment from immediate results. It fosters trust in the process and allows you to surrender to the timing and flow of the universe. By staying present in the moment and maintaining unwavering belief, you create the energetic foundation for manifesting your goals.
As you continue to practice meditation, you’ll witness your goals becoming more vivid and achievable, guiding you towards a more fulfilling and abundant life.
So, take the time to quiet your mind, embrace the various meditation techniques available, and embark on your journey of manifesting your dreams. Trust in the power of meditation to align you with the limitless possibilities of the universe, and watch as your manifestations unfold before your eyes.
