Mindfulness has become quite a buzz word these last few years, but what exactly does it mean to you? I have to confess that it had me a little confused for a while. But then I thought about it more and realized that it formed the basis behind much of what I have been doing for the past three decades.
The benefits to mindfulness practices really are amazing. For health conditions, “mindfulness can help relieve stress, treat heart disease, lower blood pressure, reduce chronic pain, improve sleep, and alleviate gastrointestinal difficulties.” Mindfulness is also being used to “treat depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, couples’ conflicts, anxiety disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.” But even without the mental and physical health benefits, well-being increases as, “being mindful makes it easier to savor the pleasures in life as they occur, helps you become fully engaged in activities, and creates a greater capacity to deal with adverse events.”1
How It Works
I would add to those benefits the idea that the more you understand and connect with your inner self, the easier it is to achieve any and all of your goals. To me then, mindfulness is about paying attention to your thoughts, being alert to how different thoughts (and beliefs connect), and training your mind to work for you instead of against you. It is about calming down the inner mind so that it can work more efficiently. It is also about understanding how the mind works and putting in place techniques that enhance your life.
Using these techniques, I have cured myself of Rheumatoid Arthritis and chronic acid reflux, I have enhanced my own career going from the bottom rung up to management and heading the PR department. My spiritual life is rich and fulfilling with frequent moments of feeling truly connected and supported, my personal relationship is simply fabulous, and my personal goals are being ticked off (running a marathon, and writing my first book).
Connecting with Yourself
We all have experiences in our past that can hold us back, and that is what the InnerTalk programs are all about. However, learning to listen to yourself enough that you know instinctively which InnerTalk program will help you achieve your goal the fastest is part and parcel of the mindfulness process.
