For those who have trouble reading text on a pic, it says:
“I’ve officially been meditating for an entire year. I cannot emphasize enough how much it’s changed my life. I went through a three year period of waking up daily with anxiety and depression. I couldn’t control my emotions and I believed every thought I had. I wasn’t able to let anything go and it made me an angry, bitter person who saw the world as an evil place full of negative people who are all out to get each other.
“But once I started meditating, over time, I began to disassociate with my ego. I began to see that we are all the infinite consciousness behind our egos and that we not only have the power to observe our thoughts, not BE our thoughts, but also laugh at those thoughts when they get ridiculous.
“Today I’m in the best place I’ve ever been in. I see the world as a much different place than I used to – the place it truly is – full of love and compassion. I spend at least 1 hour every day feeding both my mind and body – my mind through meditation and reading, and my body through running and wieghtlifting. I found purpose again.
“I want to thank Ellevan for introducing me to this life changing practice, and to Calm.com for giving me the tools every day to continue being mindful and improving my consciousness daily.
“If any of you struggle with any of the things I mentioned above, I highly encourage you to try meditation in any form you are most comfortable with. Take a class, download Calm, HeadSpace, or any of the other meditation apps in the App Store, or just try sitting silently for 10 minutes a day. I promise you, over time, your life will be changed. 🙏🏻💫🧘🏻♂️🧘🏽♀️”
