I’ve been meditating to Silva Peaks‘ guided meditations since 2010. Her meditations entitled “Your Beliefs” and “Deep Meditation” have always been able to calm my body and mind.

Since starting a regular hot yoga practice, my interest in going to an even deeper level while meditating has increased. In addition, I recently met someone who meditates twice daily and his calmness of spirit and inner glow have only encouraged me to look into meditation even more.

I stopped at the library and picked up three books so that I could make my way from the shallow end of this practice, the guided meditations I’m used to, and leap full force into the deep end – a place where I’m able to meditate without assistance from someone else’s prompting.

The first book is a meditation 101, super simple intro to the practice of meditation – ‘Simple Meditation’ by Anna Voigt.

The second book which I started today at lunch and could not put down is by David Lynch. It’s entitled ‘Catching The Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity”.

I am beyond intrigued. He paints such vivid pictures and is master of evoking a “must turn the page” feeling.

I meditated three times yesterday: once for 13 minutes in the car on my lunch break, once for 11 minutes when I got home, and once for about 10 minutes before bed. I learned that my mind is out of control. Without Silva Peaks guiding my meditation it was glaringly apparent that I would like to master considerably more self control over my inside voice.

The goal of beginning to meditate everyday is so that I can feel this feeling everyday.
