While savouring the sensorial delights of Barcelona, I have taken the opportunity to spend some time practising meditation in Park Güell amongst the imaginative and playful Gaudi creations. How wonderful, to experience such creativity in a park that has been designed to provide peace and calm while incorporating Gaudi’s work into the landscape.

Practising meditation on a regular basis can improve our ability to focus our mind, reduce anxiety, increase creativity, increase our empathy and compassion towards others, and improve our memory which inturn can increase our productivity in day to day life. Mindful meditation can also help us to experience more positive emotions, which has profound affects on how we experience the world around us.

Meditation can be practised anywhere, and normally I have incorporated it into my daily routine and how I like to start my day in the privacy of my home, while today I feel a deep sense of gratitude at the opportunity to practise here. As a very personal practice I would encourage everyone to explore what works for them. Please share any tips you have found useful in the comments for this posting, in the interest of inspiring others who may not have discovered this wonderful practice yet.

Before establishing myself as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I worked for many years in International Business in the UK and the Far East. During that time it occurred to me that I had lost touch with who I was. One brave day I resigned from my job in Hong Kong and set off on my own life’s adventure. Travelling throughout South East Asia was a feast for the mind and soul. On returning to the UK I discovered Hypnotherapy which provided a new perspective on life. The techniques empowered me to get to the root of issues, to release them and to gain new positive choices to situations. My new path began in 2000 when I trained as a Clinical Hypnotherapist at Central England Holistic Therapies. Attending training, conferences, and workshops around the world as part of my commitment to continuous growth and development for my life adventure. There is a great sense of joy from meeting like-minded people, sharing experiences and always gaining new insights. Cycling, toastmasters, travelling, pilates and volunteering at my local community arts center are some my joys in life. Reading has always been a great source of inspiration. What lights up my day is, empowering you to find your unique solution to reduce the butterflies of anxiety and self-doubt in daily life. Together we explore your inner confidence, inner calm and energy for what is important to you in your life. With your commitment we get to the root of what torments you, let it go and moving to a place of content. Allowing you to feel self-acceptance, space to make empowering choices, which create balance, so you can light up your day.
