Do I Have to Meditate Daily?


You may have heard that daily meditation is a good idea. But are you beating yourself up for not being able to sit still for 30 minutes with no thoughts running through your mind? If so, I want to introduce you to a different method of meditation that is more practical and something simple that you can stick with to get the benefits of a daily practice for your spiritual development. Enjoy!

Hi this is Melissa with and the topic of today’s video is “Do I Really Have to Meditate Daily?” Okay, so my answer to this may surprise you, and my answer is “Yes!” But not in the way you might think. So my meditation is not sitting in silence for half an hour. It is not trying to think of nothing and it’s not trying to put all the thoughts out of my mind. Now, if that’s something that works for you, great, go for it, please. But I found, for me that was very challenging and also not really very productive and practical in my life. I know that a lot of other people have sort of tried and failed to that more Eastern approach to meditation. What I want to encourage you to do is maybe change your concept of what that mediation needs to be.

Rather than meditation in the form of closing off all thoughts and thinking about nothing, think of it more of a contemplation. It’s opening the space and the quiet to receive guidance from your inner wisdom, from your intuition, from your angels, from any other angels that might be wanting to assist you – even in addition to your personal team – and just from the energy of the universe.

We live busy lives these days and it is so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day, the to-do list, work, family, blah blah blah and forget to tune into the inner guidance. I think, for me, it is a really strong pivot point to have a few minutes every day of personal spiritual time. I’ll tell you what I do, and it may or may not fit for you, but whatever it is for you, carve out five or ten minutes of your time to connect with your soul, your spirit and your angels. That small investment in time will pay off hugely in the impact it has on your life in positive ways.

What I do is I get a keyword from my angels every day. I look at that keyword at night before I go to sleep and I spend a couple minutes meditating on what that word means to me and how it related to my day and I meditate on what I learned from my daily experiences. So, when I say meditate, it’s almost like thinking but it’s sort of thinking in a relaxed, more intuitive way. That’s the best way I can describe it. I write some notes in a journal because for me that helps me to get my thoughts clear. Sometimes I write a lot and sometimes I write very briefly. I’ll write until I’ve outflowed what I needed to outflow and then I feel kind of more at peace.

That’s it. I may look over my goals briefly and ask my angels if they have anything else they need to share with me that I haven’t acknowledged yet. In that small investment of time, I can plan for the next day and just be more aware of being in the right place at the right time because I know what I’m learning from my experiences every day. Spiritually, you need some regrouping time. You need some contemplation time and a chance to really become conscious of how you’re learning and growing and what you’re putting together for yourself every day. It is a need, a spiritual need. And so if you’re not regrouping – in the morning or the evening or wherever it fits for you – you’re going to feel kind of tired and overwhelmed by life and I know a lot of people feel that way. Try doing a little regrouping and notice how different you start to feel and how more aware you are of your angels’ guidance.
