How I Find My Calm - In Just Minutes a Day!
(And You Can, Too)!
"The more regularly and the more deeply you meditate, the sooner you will find yourself acting always from a center of inner peace."
- J. Donald Walters
Does this sound familiar? You wake up in the morning after pressing snooze a few times. You then jump up, get your child(ren) up and maybe your spouse, then make sure they're good to go. You rush to get yourself together and head to work, feeling frantic. You get to your job and have to deal with the stressors there, plus, you're thinking about all the things you have to do when you leave. After you return home, you prepare dinner, straighten up, and maybe scroll through Instagram for 15 minutes. Then you go to bed, wake up, and do it all over again.
Just reading this sounds stressful and overwhelming right? And I'm sure it is if you're actually living it.
Fortunately, by carving a few minutes out of your day to find your calm through meditation, you can experience more harmony, joy, and inner peace in your life. I'm going to show you how you can do just that in six weeks instead of spending hours scouring Google and YouTube, trying to figure out the best way to start your practice.
Just keep reading. 🙂
Here's My Story...
My journey to finding my calm started back in 2014, a few months after I had my daughter, Nailah. I was trying to balance being a new mama, a wife, and an entrepreneur -- and I felt like I didn't have enough help from my husband. On top of feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, and frustrated, I felt guilty because I couldn't do it all. It eventually got so bad, that one day, my husband texted me from work (because we were barely communicating) and asked if I still wanted to be with him. Yes, I was frustrated. Yes, I was overwhelmed. Yes, I was miserable and disappointed. But I didn’t want to leave.
That was my wake-up call, my a-ha moment as Oprah calls it. I knew I had to do something different. I had to do something to feel better, not only mentally and emotionally but physically, too. So, I started working on myself: I journaled to figure out what I wanted and wrote new affirmations around how I wanted to feel and who I wanted to be. I also searched for more strategies online (because that's what I do), and that ultimately led me to re-starting my meditation practice. And as cliche as it sounds -- it changed my life!
And now, as I'm dealing with some difficulties and changes in my personal life, meditation has been one of the top ways I've been able to stay centered, grounded, and at peace.
By beginning my meditation practice three years ago, I:
- Stress and worry less
- Have learned to be present and live in the moment
- Go with the flow of life more often
- Have created a more positive mindset
- Have manifested and created things I desire in my life

What People Are Saying
"I had a private guided meditation session with Jamie over the phone. I didn't know what to expect, but I trusted her and allowed myself to be led. Jamie has such a relaxing spirit, which I immediately connected with. The session helped me relax but also helped me focus solely on one specific area in my life.
"Allowing Jamie to guide me through the meditation was what I needed to help release some things I was holding on to. I highly recommend a private session."
"This [meditation] is much needed in my life right now. I formerly wasn't one for meditation and yoga, even though it's necessary at times, but your voice, the affirmations, and just being able to escape my current 'space' is awesome. Keep up the great work!"
"I really want to thank you. I've been so stressed, I zapped out on my fiance and have been drinking and smoking a lot. I woke up with pain (like labor pains) from stress and dehydration (I believe), and I am just losing my mind. I just did this [breathing exercise], and my pain went away. I can't understand how a simple, couple minute meditation just got rid of hours of pain...
"God bless you, my sister."

Do I have to meditate for a certain amount of time/a long time?
Some sites or people might tell you to meditate for 30 minutes or longer per day, and you totally can if you want. But truthfully, you can meditate for any amount of time you choose and still get the benefits. If you're just getting started, I suggest beginning with five or 10 minutes in the morning and/or evening. You can then work your way up to longer times.
Is meditation difficult?
Admittedly, sitting still and quieting your "monkey mind" can be difficult when you first begin meditating (and it still happens from time to time even if you've been meditating a while). However, by starting small and being consistent with your meditation practice, you'll find that it becomes easier to keep your mind calm and clear.
