“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.” ~ Ram Dass ~
This is what my migraines look like: shooting pain through the middle to upper part of my frontal cortex, followed by blurred vision and a state of complete confusion. I honestly don’t get migraines that much anymore but a recent one put me down for a good hour that felt like eternity. A few years ago, waking up with this same migraine almost every day was beyond debilitating. I had the perfect trifecta: traumatic brain injury, ADHD, and mild dyslexia. Just the thought of another migraine coming would keep me up for days at a time. The drugs I had to take would numb me and turn me into a zombie. I would have done literally anything for it to stop. Unfortunately, if you get migraines, you know exactly what I mean.
Thankfully, I found that you can heal your brain and change, but it takes work and commitment. Flotation therapy and meditation changed my life, but while I instantly loved floating, meditating was very difficult for me. It wasn’t until I made a daily commitment to put the time in and work with meditation to heal and forgive that things began to shift. My recent migraine was a reminder that I needed to start again. I had fallen out of the habit, and my mind has been louder than ever. Too much, and your brain goes back to old pathways. But through some CBD products and a meditation app called @insighttimer, I’ve started the healing process again. If you would like to join me in a group named “Be Here Now” and start a 20-day meditation challenge, then please send me your email to email@example.com to get started and I’ll send you the information. It’s the perfect time of year to make the change. Its just like working out again; the hardest part is showing up, but once you’re there, you feel so much better. Meditating is no different. We will start slow. One minute the first day, then two the second day, then three the third day…you get the idea. Cheers everyone and happy day. Much love, Jason.
