If you love meditation and feel like it’s helped you get through just about everything in life, it’s natural to want to share your love of it with the people you care about. You want them to feel the same joy and positive energy you get from your meditation practice. You may know about the long-term benefits of meditation, but do they? You’ve even suggested mini-meditation sessions to get them started.
Take the quiz below to see if you are a pushy meditator and read on to learn more.
Everyone Needs Meditation, Right?
If you’ve noticed that your friends and family run the other way when you talk about your meditation practice, then yes, you may be a pushy meditator. And you may notice that the harder you try to get them interested, the faster they run.
Let Your Practice Be Enough for You
In the end, it doesn’t matter if they meditate, either with you or on their own. Your practice is enough. Your friends don’t need to meditate for you to benefit from it. Being the best example of how they can benefit from mediation without trying to push them into it may be the best way to get them started.
Let Go and Just Be
When you become a pushy meditator, you may do more harm than good. Release your desire to boast about all the amazing benefits of meditating or discuss the power of meditation mantras. And let them find their way to inner peace. After all, the relationship you have with your friends is more important than whether or not they think meditation is the best thing since sliced bread. So, follow meditation’s main tenant and let go and just be.
