Meditation is good for business. Believe it or not, mediation not only brings inner peace and serenity, but it’s also a brilliant way improve business effectiveness.
I’ve been trying to re-position my product for the last little while (my product is me, of course). The process of trying to work out what I should do, for who and how created some hectic mental churn over the last two weeks. At the same time I’ve been busy, out there. Meetings, dinners, gym, stacks of things to do, so much so that my daily spiritual practice has taken a back seat.
Finally today I cleared the decks and made time to be still and go within. Guess what? Although it wasn’t my aim, at the end I had a clear mental image, stated in simple terms, of how to name my work, where to offer it and who to phone. The result?When I called the client who came to mind, with the suggestion that had come to mind, she lit up, (I could feel it even over the phone!) saying ‘this is exactly what we have been wanting to do, but haven’t got round to it. Write me a proposal and let’s go!’
As we talked I got a Ride the River (name of my book) experience – streams of energy poured through my body, giving me goose bumps. And that. for me, is always physical confirmation that I am on the right track, doing the right thing.
When we take our business troubles to meditation, elegant and simple answers come about in marvellous ways. To find our more about meditation you could start with http://www.freemeditations.com/healing-meditation.html. It seems really comprehensive. Let me know how you find it.
When I looked for Christian Meditation sites these two came up http://www.freemeditations.com/christian_meditation.html and http://www.grainofwheat.net/journey.html. Would love your comment on these too, and any other recommendations.
