Episode 50: The Top 3 Meditation Myths That Might be Holding You Back - Part 2

Feb 10, 2023


Today is Part 2 of a 3-part series where we are going to go on a journey into the basics of meditation. Because meditation can be difficult, especially in the beginning. And it’s easy to become quickly frustrated and to just give up.

If that sounds like you, if you’re like… yeah… I’ve tried meditation and just can’t do it. Or you could never get into it for whatever reason, then this episode (and last week’s episode and next week’s episode) are for you. And if you do meditate, and want to deepen your practice, then I encourage you to listen as well, because on the third part of this series, I am going to introduce you to a new concept that may actually change the way you practice meditation – for the better.

So for today, Part 2 of this series, we are going to answer the question, what are the top 3 myths about meditation that might be holding you back… AND we are totally going to bust these myths and share the truth.


 Together we unpack:

  • How long do you actually need to meditate for it to be effective? (4:44)
  • Who is meditation for, and will it help you? (8:39)
  • Meditating with a chronic health condition. (11:03)
  • Busting the myths and moving forward. (13:27)


If you're in a place where you are ready to give meditation a try or take your existing practice to the next level... if you are willing to raise your hand and say I'm ready to do what it takes, I am here to be your coach, your mentor, and your champion who believes in you. 

And if you want to find out more about how gratitude combined with meditation is your new superpower, your next step is to head over to You will get personalized gratitude and mindset resources so that you can start to reverse the cycle of disease and take control of your health and your life.
