Quoting from my book: Recovering and Healing After the Narcissist:
"Meditation is the key to insight, healing and transformation. It calms the mind, opens the heart and awakens the soul. Meditation takes us beyond the recycling chatter of crowded thoughts. With meditation, we reach the mind beyond mind, thought beyond thought---the source of knowing. In deep meditation we experience a vibration of peace.
If you have shared your life with a narcissist, whether a parent, spouse, family member you have been constantly bombarded by their demands, intimidations and cruelties."
Each meditation is unique. Meditate in the best way that works for you. Be open and nonjudgmental with your meditation.
Meditation is personal; not one-size fits all. Make an effort to be consistent. If you miss a meditation, do not be judgmental. Reward yourself for making the intention to meditate.
You can do short meditations, a minute, two minutes, five minutes. It is not the length of the meditations but your intentions that matter.
Noticing that you mind wanders when you meditate tells you that you are participating in this process.
Give yourself a lot of credit for making the effort to meditate.
You are moving forward toward recovery, healing, personal transformation and the continued evolution of your authentic self.
