Episode Summary

Today we are joined by Meris Gebhardt, founder of Opulent Mindfulness. She has 22 years of yoga experience, aerobiotic experience, psychology, philosophy, and professional experience. She struggled with her bouts of anxiety. She is highly regarded as a teacher and thought leader.

Amy and Meris talk about mindfulness and centering ourselves at the moment. Maris is a highly regarded and prolific teacher in corporate and individualized meditation. She accepts clients all around the world and is in Italy today.

As a child growing up in a difficult home situation, Meris discovered meditation and mindfulness. Her Catholic roots, especially in Italy, play a profound role in her work. She believes in service and that when we serve too much, we are drained and burned out.

According to Louise Hay, meditation is a form of self-exploration. Meris has been doing yoga for 23 years. She works with corporations and meditation. She believes meditation is personal and personal, and you can’t do it wrong. It’s simple, free, accessible, and passed the test of time.

Meditation is the practice of becoming aware of the thoughts in your mind and letting them air out. It’s not necessary to quiet the thoughts but to get intimate with the thoughts and to witness them without attaching to them. The goal is to witness the thoughts without attaching meditating for 20 minutes in the morning after exercise is recommended for the first 90 minutes of the day so that we don’t check our social media, emails, communications, text, or whatever for the next 90 minutes. The day always goes better when we follow that rule.

Meditation can help with anxiety and depression. It can also raise your vibrational levels. It’s easy to get caught in fear and ego, but it’s also possible to get ahead of it and focus on the positive aspects of our lives. It is essential to focus on positive emotions and bring them into focus.

According to Ayurveda, emotions can cause physical disease or disease. So meditation and mindfulness can help move us through that. Meris is holding a week-long movement and meditation retreat in Italy in October.

Meris shares some tips on how to start meditating with someone who has never meditated before. She recommends sitting on the edge of the bed for 3 minutes before going to sleep. She finds meditation similar to prayer.

Meditation is like going to the gymnasium. Mindfulness has more Buddhist derivations, whereas Meris comes from a Hindu yogic background. She explains the difference between meditation and mindfulness to the listeners.
