Hi, my name’s Stephanie, although I prefer Steph.

 

I’ve come here looking for answers. I’m unable to afford yoga lessons for the time being, I am unemployed and still living at home. I have a pain in my upper right leg and I went to the doctors to get help and she suggested yoga, I read up on the benefits and, being unemployed, searched for free lessons of both yoga and meditation for my stress. I hope this is the right thing to do because I don’t know what else to do. I am at a point in my life where I feel something is dreadfully wrong and that something is missing. Part of me is thinking I’m making a fool of myself admitting my feelings to complete strangers but something inside me is crying out for help and is pushing the keys. I suffer from stress and something is telling me I shouldn’t be. I feel much older than my years (I’m 20) and that I am carrying too much emotion. The past 12 months have been the worst of my short life and I feel I need to find out exactly what I want rather than trying so desperately to please everyone around me. Actually as I am typing I can feel my eyes filling up (I feel this is a good sign) at the thought of what I have missed, as though I have had a thick cloud obstruct me from what my peers have experienced. I do not regret my past, I just wish this life had happened much later, I feel I am too young to be going through it all. 

 

I hope meditation and yoga can give me a clear mind to find what I am looking for, I’m starting to hate myself for being so selfish in the things I think about. 

 

Yours gratefully

Steph x

You will overcome all your problems and start a new beginning in your life. The more you meditate, the more you will grow within. You will feel the joy of your Self. No more pain, no more suffering.

Hello Steph,

I wanted to let you know that all the negative thoughts are coming to you due to an imbalance in your subtle system.  We often have the habit of searching outside for solutions or trying to numb ourselves by keeping our minds busy.  However these approaches do not provide us with lasting help and change.  With the help of meditation and the balancing techniques which you can learn in this course, you will be able to feel good again and think “those thoughts were not me!”.

In today’s society many young people suffer from an overactive mind which makes them feel very confused.  And the way out is not to go further down the path of thinking. 

Meditation helps you to find your axis again.  It will give you the clarity and detachment you are looking for, in order to live happily, being yourself and loving who you are.

See if you can meditate once in the morning and once in the evening, every day.  It will help you to recover your emotional balance.  Then you will be able to look at life in a different light.

There is much for you to discover in meditation.

Please feel free to write us anytime.

cool

Thanks to everyone for caring to reply to me. I completely forgot I’d posted anything. Things have really been looking up towards the new year. In fact not long after I’d posted my heartfelt confession, things really started to change for the better (got to think positive) Although the pain hasn’t eased (I will admit I’ve not been meditating or stretching so I can’t complain) one of the changes was a new home and with it a new doctor so hopefully they may be able to help more than the last. I’m waiting for a routine, I’m looking for a new job which is more regular than the hours I’m putting in now which are all over the place and I’ll be able to find the time and motivation for relaxation and exercise.

 

Thanks once again, yet another lovely surprise in the new year, I’m much much happier :) 

 

Steph xx
