This week’s episode talks about the “I’ll be happy when” syndrome, what happens when one meditates, and why it’s important to soften the grip on one’s desires.
Emily also discusses the difference between mindfulness and meditation, how to gauge if one’s meditation practice is working, and how one can start manifesting.
Emily highlights the significance of meditation by saying, “We meditate to get good at life, not to get good at meditation.”
