Hey guys. It’s Bex here and welcome to another
video in my series You Have Four Minutes for Meditation. Today I’m changing it up a bit and I’m teaching
you how to make your very own meditation. So you won’t even need me anymore. It will
be great. You can even teach your friends. [Music] I’m especially excited about today’s video
because I have three very fun things that I get to share with you. First, I am bringing you out to my meditation
oasis on the back acres of Bex Life Farm. This is my meditation platform where I go
to get away from it all. Two, I have a mantra challenge for you that
I really want you to join and share with your friends. It’s 21 days long. You can join at
any time. You just have to click on the top link in the video description or at the link
at the back of this video. Number three, I’m teaching you how to meditate
on your own. Now I still want you to come back and visit me but I want you to also be
able to create beautiful things for yourself and also to teach your friends how easy it
is to meditate, to find peace and to find happiness and get blissed in every single
day. We’re going to start with the very basics
of meditation. Meditation simply means to contemplate, to focus your attention on one
thing and hopefully when you’re focusing your attention on one thing, you start to focus
on no things and you drift away into a state of bliss. You don’t have to be in a bubble for meditation.
I know that things are going on all around you and your lives are very busy. So wherever
you can get quiet, just for a few minutes, is the perfect spot. I have a meditation platform but most of the
time I’m just hiding out in my laundry room, in my car in the driveway or a quiet spot
in my bedroom during the day. So wherever you can be quiet even if it’s at your desk
at work and you can close your eyes and just tune out for a few minutes, that’s the place
for you. I also want you to be alert during meditation.
So if you could just sit up nice and tall with your shoulders right up over your hips
and a straight line from the crown of your head all the way down to your seat, that would
be ideal. You can do this by inhaling your shoulders
up to your ears and exhaling your shoulder blades down your spine. You can have your hands downturned on your
knees or upturned to receive the energy around you. This is the perfect meditation posture.
You may also have your legs crossed like me, one foot in front of the other in half lotus
or full lotus, whatever works for you. Now let’s get to the nitty-gritty of making
your own meditation. I have two parts to this and one was gifted to me from a good friend
Erin Stutland who has a program called Shrink Session which is an amazing exercise program
that incorporates mantra and dance. It’s so much fun and the second part is an offering
just from me to you. I want you to make a list of all the things
that you desire most. It could be the most ridiculous list of the most ridiculous things
that you’re afraid to even say out loud. Just 10 things, 10 things that your heart desires
that you really, really want. It could be financial. It could be about love.
It could be relationships. It could be about your job. It could be about the way you look.
Anything your heart desires is going on this list right now and don’t be shy. Even if you’re afraid to share these, I would
love for you to share just one with me in the comments below. We’re going to call this
the “gold digger list” because that’s what Erin calls it and I think that’s just a great
list because it’s just like these outrageous things that you want. You could say, “I want a tighter butt,” “I
want to make a million dollars this year,” “I want to meet the man of my dreams and have
him take me on a vacation to Bali.” Any of these things, it starts with “I want”.
You’re going to write this list and you’re going to keep it and put it aside. Now manifesting is about bringing things into
your life that you want. But there’s also a key component that a lot of people forget
and that’s about what we have to give. When we give, we get back so much. What do
you have to offer the world? What makes you special? What do people thank you for? I want
you to think about all the things that you can share with the world that when it comes
back around, it’s going to help you to get that stuff on your gold digger list even faster. Think about your best qualities and this is
going to be the next part of the list, 10 things that start with, “I have to offer”.
I have to offer my sense of humor. I have to offer my love. I have to offer kindness.
It could even be very specific things like I have money to give. I can give a little
bit to charity, $5, $10, $1000. I can give my time. I could volunteer at the local school. So put 10 things on this list and there are
your mantra meditations. I want you to focus on one thing from your gold digger list and
then a corresponding item that maybe would complement that item on your give list and
I want you to repeat these things over and over and over again during your next four-minute
meditation. I want to make a million dollars this year.
I have to offer my time to my local charity. Now it might not make sense at first. But
believe me, when you’re giving constantly, the universe recognizes that and it wants
to give back. There is a force behind all of us that’s cheering us on that wants to
propel us forward and wants us to have all that we desire. So I want you to try this
out. I want you to do it even if it feels silly and I want you to share those mantras
in the comments below. Then I also want you to sign up for my 21-day
challenge and tell me how that goes and share it with all of your friends. I know you’re
going to love it. It’s 21 mantras delivered to your inbox every single day. You could
start at anytime. There is no deadline. There is no start date and I make everything very
easy for you because meditation is meant to be easy. I love you guys and I will see you soon in
another Bex Life video. [I hope you’re all inspired to make your own
mantra meditations. But I would still love you to sign up for my 21-day Mantra Challenge
by clicking on the screen or on the first link in the video description. I love you
guys. I will see you soon and keep those requests coming.]
