Why is meditation so hard?
One reason may be that it is hard spending time alone with our own cluttered minds. It is hard to avoid our own internal contradictions, long repressed fears and the incessant need for validation when you are doing nothing but sitting still and observing your breath.
Sondra teaches us to be kind to ourselves and be kind to our thoughts, that even when we struggle with our mind to not judge, instead to just observe that you are struggling and to move on.
Even if you can only sit in meditation for a few minutes it is still worth the effort. Just a few minutes a day is enough to get started with mindfulness.
As a personal and sleep coach, Sondra guides people who feel depleted and empty to connect with their authentic selves, creating a fuller life of kindness and purpose. Her work includes helping people exhausted from sleep issues and stress get the rest they need, heal what’s underneath, and go after their dreams. Her 7 Pathways teaches clients how to change their relationship with body, mind, emotions, bigger picture, and more. She uses disciplines such as somatic healing, energy awareness, yoga, and hypnosis. The author of four books on sleep, brain function, and energy, Sondra has presented at Microsoft and Seattle Counselors’ Association, and appeared on many podcasts.
