Today, I’m speaking with my friend, Light Watkins. He's a meditation teacher, author and advocate for meditation practice. Formerly a model, he one day decided to take a leap and trust the softer voice in his head. One thing led to another, and Light was on a journey to become a yoga and meditation teacher. He eventually went on to write 3 books. His latest, Knowing Where to Look, is a fun read, with 108 short stories that will inspire you to live “on purpose” more courageously.
The book “Conversations with God” got Light thinking more about spirituality.Light decided that following your heart was the most prudent way to find happiness.Your heart will challenge you with difficult changes and it will take courage to follow your heart and evolve.A breakup was the catalyst for Light leaving New York and moving to California.It was in California where Light began teaching Yoga and eventually met a meditation teacher that inspired him to learn and teach meditation.Most people that call themselves meditation teachers are really guides and are not teaching mechanics.Meditation means different things to different people. There are multiple styles of meditation.The biggest benefit that Light has experienced through meditation is being more connected with his intuition.Your heart voice will never tell you what not to do. It only tells you what to do.Resources:
