Well, I’ve done it!
About 7 years after building the original Mediation.Works website, creating all the Guided Meditations that I have to date, and watching thousands of people go there – unexpectedly – because it all started out as a labour of love, and a promise kept to a dear departed friend…
And about 300 hours of work writing and creating the video and Kickstarter Campaign contents, checking, re-checking, writing, re-writing and hoping and praying for the best…
Meditation is the balm your heart and soul needs, especially in these trying times…
Before I tell you all about my Kickstarter Campaign, let’s start off with a brief visualization meditation, as I’m sensing we all need this right now in a HUGE way.
In this particularly challenging time, I invite you to breathe in and out deeply, 3 times… Please do that now…
Bring your awareness inward and see your inner, expansive self moving energetically out into the collective consciousness of the planet, bringing your light and your love to it and the rest of the world as a great blue light… Let’s just sit with that for a moment and continue to pulse your “radiant light of lights” as you make yet another contribution to the uplifting and healing of all life on this planet…
As you continue to pulse your great light, send love to yourself also; to your beautiful, perfect body that sustains you and makes your time spent here possible…
Send love to your higher self, otherwise known as your “silent passenger” – the one who is always guiding you and leading you towards the fulfilment of your great purpose here on Earth, and that is to just BE your glorious self, and shine you luminousness upon others in whatever way you feel will best serve the planet – and your higher self, who are ONE…
Remember that ultimately, it is only TOGETHER that we can make a real change FOR THE BETTER in this world!
Once again, as you breath in and out deeply, give one final great pulse of your divine light and love to all existence so all may HEAL and be sustained in peace, harmony and abundance… Please do that now…
Having done that, as you continue to breathe in and out, slowly, gently bring your awareness to your fingertips, to your skin, and to your surroundings…
Thank you for meditating with me and Meditation.Works… I’m sure the world felt your love and will be radiating more of the same back to you!
So this is one of the ways I’m doing my part to help uplift and heal the planet!
I’m not one to give negativity ANY energy. It simply doesn’t exist in my world as I have long given up defaulting to fear.
That said, I maintain a pragmatic stance at all times, weighing and considering many opinions and information as required before making any decisions regarding anything that comes my way.
And now THAT said, I’ve learned that my initial “gut” reaction to things is pretty much always right, despite the fact that I rarely used to listen to it – that LITTLE VOICE INSIDE YOU that says “yeah” or “nay” because I was ATTACHED to an outcome that I wanted badly.
May I say that this NEVER ends well.
Meditation is a way of honing and growing that LITTLE VOICE INSIDE YOU (like the one I just spoke about in the meditation above) that will never steer you astray! It’s your “gut”, your “intuition”, your “higher self”, your “secret passenger” speaking to you, guiding you ever so gently and consistently toward your very own North Star.
In these challenging, CHANGING times, I hope you are listening to your own LITTLE VOICE INSIDE, and you’re taking it’s advice as it BEST SUITS YOU, because only YOU know what’s best for YOU!
As we are, most of us, in solitude now, it’s a perfect time to meditate, or learn how to!
My Guided Meditations make it incredibly easy to “get into” and “stay in” meditation, and be inspired, soothed, nurtured and uplifted – and benefit 100% from the incredible benefits just 15 minutes of daily meditation offers!
Mediation.Works is here to help!
For those of you who are new to Meditation.Works, here’s a bit about me and my quest to make meditation as beneficial, easy and accessible to the world as possible!
I’m Renata Duma, and I’ve devoted thousands of hours and dollars over the past 7 years, creating and offering my FREE Guided Meditations to both new and seasoned meditators, on a growing roster of inspirational, motivational and transformational subjects, with many new Guided Meditations soon to be released for adults, children, teens and elders, on subject matters that matter to them most!
As a Mindfulness Meditation Coach, intuitive empath, healer, and a life-long meditator, my dream of a lifetime has been to share my Guided Meditations with the world for FREE, and help others heal and grow – and find their joy – through the awesome and indisputable power of meditation, wherein lies my ultimate joy.
I’m a former professional classical pianist and vocalist of 30+ years, former prime-time TV host of 15+ years, broadcasting coach, published author, poet, single mom of 18+ years, and former marketing director of a publicly traded Company.
And now, the Mediation.Works Kickstarter Campaign is LIVE!
I have JUST launched a Kickstarter Campaign and the video that I created that’s on the Campaign page is all about Meditation.Works and how I plan to continue to bring my Guided Meditations to the world for FREE, so everyone can benefit from the many, mighty and AWESOME benefits meditation offers!
I hope you enjoy it and please share or support Meditation.Works with any one of the levels of offerings and what you will receive for them!
I am trying to raise CA$11,111 to Kickstart my Online Meditation Support Materials and T-shirt line to support the business so Meditation.Works can keep putting out FREE beautiful, inspiring, uplifting, healing and nurturing Guided Meditations for everyone to meditate with, and not just for adults but for children, teens and elders, on subject matters that matter to them most, and make this world a better place for all of us!

Once again, here’s the link to the Kickstarter Campaign:
Next weeks Blog Post…
I’ll continue with my series on Masters of Meditation in the West next week as I am overjoyed to share my Kickstarter Campaign news with you this week.
We’ll be continuing on with the Master that I mentioned last week, who the Beatles were HUGE fans of!
See you then!
For now, here’s a link to one of my Guided Meditations, The Beginner’s Guide to Meditation – 15 Minute Version:
This 15 Minute Beginner’s Guide to Meditation Guided Meditation will help you “get into” and “stay in” meditation, with ease, so you can benefit 100% from all the many and mighty benefits meditation offers!, so you don’t give up on your first – or hundredth go at it because of the dreaded “monkey mind”!
The average cognitive mind produces between 60,000 and 70,000 thoughts per day. At 60,000 thoughts per day, if you take away 8 hours for sleep (during which time the mind is busy processing complex stimuli, then using that information to make decisions during the day), that comes out to 3,750 thoughts per hour, 62.5 thoughts per minute and roughly 1 thought per second. 80% of those thoughts tend to be negative and 95% repetitive.
If we continue to repeat negative thoughts, we end up thinking way more negative thoughts than positive ones, and basically adopt a negative mindset.
It’s no surprise the cognitive mind has come to be known as “monkey mind” in meditation circles, due to its incessant thought creation or “brain chatter”, and it’s exactly this brain chatter that prevents us from accessing our “higher mind” or intuitive functions.
Here’s a secret: Nobody is actually able to calm their mind, or “turn off” their brain chatter: there are just varying degrees of tuning it out. Seasoned meditators are able to rise above it, and basically ignore it.
They believe that “what you resist, PERSISTS”, so resisting the chatter just gives rise to paying it more attention, and the more attention it gets paid, the louder it gets. So how do you actually rise above the mind chatter when you’re not a seasoned meditator?
That’s easy: just start with this Guided Meditation!
It will keep your mind chatter at bay as you focus on the POSITIVE thought process the Guided Meditation is taking you through.
If you should start noticing your own thoughts coming up, just allow them to float by… like clouds in the sky… and return to the Guided Meditation.
Eventually, with enough meditation experience, you will be able to access your higher mind with ease and begin to receive guidance directly from your higher mind – or higher self, in several different ways, which only you will be able to distinguish and recognize as appropriate and helpful to you. Meditating along with the Meditation.Works Beginner’s Guide to Meditation will help you take your first steps towards accessing higher aspects of your mind and your self.
It will also help you reduce stress and anxiety almost instantly up to 40%, along with a myriad of other benefits that both meditation in silence – and Guided Meditation – offer.
