Are you looking for ways to improve your life? Then you should try meditation! It has been proven time and again to be one of the most effective methods of self improvement.
Do you find yourself living in the world of “WHAT IF”? What if something bad happens? What if I can’t make a decision? Fear, worry, and other feelings can pull you into a dark place.
If you are stuck in the past or projecting into the future, you rob yourself of the present.
Kara Goodwin joins me today to help us find calm seas in our sometimes crazy lives. She will be diving deep into meditation, what it is and how it works. Kara is a meditation and spiritual transformation coach, and has been practicing meditation for years to create calmness and joy in her own life. While living out of the country, Kara faced multiple tragic losses in her family very quickly. Even though this put her in a tailspin, it opened the way to understanding the healing capabilities of meditation.
“The present moment is so powerful and when we aren’t aware that we keep getting out of the present moment, this is where we suffer the most and so if we can it become aware and continuously make choices to bring ourselves back, that’s a big part of meditation and it’s a big part of increasing our quality of life.”
I have been personally drawn to the practice of meditation. I have experienced the power and the benefits of being present. I really believe that mindfulness and meditation can help us in so many ways. After speaking with Kara I was so inspired. I felt such a calm come over me and that is why I am sharing this conversation and her knowledge with you today.
Kara shared so much about how our brains work and the effect meditation has on us. The basic principle of meditation is to stay present, to be in the moment. Even though it has been around for thousands of years, it is still being practiced for its many benefits.
Even in the smallest increment, meditation works to bring balance and emotional well-being to our lives. It draws our attention away from the negativity we feel from events and the internal dialog we encounter. Meditation infuses throughout our entire existence.
When we are calm, our minds and bodies respond, even allowing healing on a cellular level. This calm also builds a reserve for the times we are pushed to our limits.
So the next time you feel anxious, tense or stressed…remember, just breathe…

More about Kara:
She was drawn to meditation after a tragic year which brought many losses in quick succession – the death of her sister-in-law, a tragic accident for her mother-in-law, ICU and a heart transplant for her stepmother, all while she was living out of the country. It felt as though her whole reality shifted, and she dedicated herself to learning the art of meditation. Through her deepening practice of meditation she has opened herself up to a strong connection with Source. In the years since she has been meditating and guiding others on their journeys, she has uncovered latent energy healing capabilities and experiences frequent unexplainable phenomena (visions, journeys into multidimensional realms, inner knowings verified in the external environment, insights). She has had several powerful transcendental experiences where she has experienced her consciousness “outside of her body,” as something much bigger than her “little self,” and also had transcendental experiences where she viscerally experienced her physical body as a cosmic entity – feeling/seeing her chakras and their corresponding elemental connections, feeling the different parts of her brain and how each part relates to frequency, how consciousness is nonlocal and memories/experiences are stored in the body. These have been spellbinding revelations to experience, which have completely shifted how she sees the life experience and the power and potential of each life here. Most importantly, although these experiences are unique in their way, they are also universal in that they have shown the framework that we are all living in in our human experiences.
