These Things Don’t Make You a Good Meditator

There’s so much confusion in the meditation space around what’s necessary to meditate properly,
versus what’s considered “cheating.”

I like to keep things simple when it comes to a daily practice, and as far as I’ve seen (and taught),
these are 5 things that you truly don’t need to start your meditation practice.

More than 50% of adult Australians are suffering from chronic sleep issues that have a direct effect on how they
function day to day and enjoy a healthy, happy life.

Screen time, demanding schedules, diet and poor mental health are among the key culprits, so what’s the solution?


A straight back

Actually, sitting with comfortable back support is completely acceptable, and leads to more enjoyable and consistent meditation practice.

A quiet mind

Here’s the thing: meditation is less about how many thoughts you have, and more about how accepting you are of your thoughts. The reason why VM is so effective is because it teaches you exactly what to do with your thoughts so they become your friend, not your foe.

A point of focus

A point of focus is supposed to keep your mind from wandering. But the reality is that your mind is going to wander. So instead of trying to stop it from doing what it’s naturally going to do, practice embracing your wandering mind. VM shows you how.

A complicated ritual

You don’t need to light candles, burn incense, play music, or hold crystals in order to meditate. All you truly need is a comfortable seat. Everything else is extra.

A lot of free time

Truthfully, you don’t need any more than 15-20 minutes to get the biggest bang for your buck in meditation. And before you say that you don’t have those 15 minutes, that’s about the same amount of time that we spend scrolling on social media several times a day.
