Important question for spiritual-seekers who still haven't found the inner peace and contentment they've been searching for...
If there was a predictable, step-by-step method to feel calm, balanced, and spiritually connected EVERY SINGLE DAY without spending hours that you just DON'T HAVE on your meditation cushion or running away to an ashram in India....
Would you be willing to commit just a tiny portion of your busy day to a simple spiritual practice that gets real results?
Because this is what your life can feel like if you don't:
Nothing more than a frustrating, meaningless, hamster-wheel of never-ending tasks and responsibilities.....
Waking up each day in a race against time to get everything done...
Feeling stressed and overwhelmed and also lost and confused....
Because If you know - deep down - that you're missing something fundamentally important...
That you've become disconnected from your inner self....and therefore any chance of inner peace and true contentment
Then keep reading...
Because what follows could EASILY be the most pivotal moment you look back on a few weeks from now...
...after you've committed to your spiritual growth, and have discovered that place of stillness within that ensures your days are increasingly filled with a sense of calm, joy and ease..
Let me know if this sounds familiar:
You wake up un-refreshed after a crappy night's sleep to the alarm going off on your phone, knowing it would probably do you the world of good to meditate for 10mins before the madness begins...
...but before you know it you've already wasted 15 checking email and FB, and you're not in the mood anyway cause your mind is already racing with everything that needs to be done today - and, you're now running late!
Your body is already flooded with stress, worsened by the coffee you gulp down, but hey, you can't function half asleep.
You resolve to go to yoga that evening for some much-needed me-time and to de-compress...
...but after a day of rushing and frustration; full of work, mundane responsibilities and taking care of everything and everyone (except yourself) you actually don't have the time nor energy for that yoga class after all...
By the day's end your head is throbbing and your patience long gone, you don't mean to but you lose your sh*t at your kid or partner and immediately feel your stomach lurch with guilt and your face flush with shame (this is NOT who you are!) but your nerves are so on edge you just can't filter yourself anymore.
By evening you're so exhausted and wound up, your so-called "me time" is reduced to zoning out in front of Netflix with a glass of wine for an hour, before collapsing into bed and reading a few pages of Wayne Dyer for inspiration...
...but after 2 pages you realise you're not taking anything in and even though you're achingly tired you just can't switch off, running through your to-do list for tomorrow and wondering in the back of your mind:
"surely there's got to be more to my life than this?"
As someone who truly values personal growth, you SHOULD be able to have more to your life than this...
As someone who works hard and cares so much for others...
... (you're practically a counsellor for your friends!)
you deserve to wake up each morning and make taking care of YOU a priority for a change...
You deserve to have just a few minutes to yourself to meditate and allow your mind to settle...
...to begin your day with a deep sense of peace and contentment, and to feel that calm serenity permeate the rest of your day like a sweet fragrance, flowing into all you do and touching all you meet...
You know you can't (and don't necessarily want to) escape the responsibilities of daily life, but you're wise enough to know that you can change HOW you approach them.
Which is why you not only deserve but NEED that sacred time of daily spiritual practice so that you can feel grounded and present during the day and no longer tossed around mentally by the external circumstances of your life.
You know your time on this planet is limited and you deserve to rediscover the beauty and mystery of life once again, to savour and enjoy both the special moments and the tiny everyday pleasures.
You deserve to have that unshakeable clarity that your connection to your inner self brings - that direct line to your intuition that allows you to hear and follow the calling of your soul, and make decisions easily for your highest good.
And your family, friends and co-workers need and deserve this from you too...
...as someone already on the spiritual path, your natural kindness and compassion touches others more than you can know, and the more you access the peace within you, the more others will notice and benefit from your calm presence and your relationships will blossom.
And at the end of each day, you deserve to go to bed feeling truly grateful, aware once again of life's blessings and to fall, easily into a deep, restful sleep.
So what’s holding you back?
The 5 reasons you're still stressed, overwhelmed and unfulfilled despite trying meditation, watching The Secret and reading all the latest spiritual books!...
1. You think you'll be happy when...
If you've been sucked into the seductive promises of our culture, it's not your fault...we've all been fooled into looking for happiness outside of ourselves ever since we were little children...
And what's worse, the New Age movement has now jumped on the bandwagon with a supposedly "spiritual" new tune to the same old song: simply manifest whatever you desire through the law of attraction and you'll be happy.
Understanding that the truth is, inner peace and contentment have NOTHING to do with what we can buy, do, get or achieve.
They are MENTAL states, which means they come from WITHIN.
And unfortunately, as human beings, it doesn’t matter how many vision boards we create, we can't control every aspect of our external lives and get every single thing we want...
...life is messy, difficult and unfair sometimes.
Which is why ancient spiritual traditions have always taught us to look inside, to find that internal source of peace, joy and stillness that isn't dependent on life going a certain way for us.
2. You've got too much on your plate
If you're well and truly stuck on the hamster wheel of eat-sleep-work-repeat and you put everyone else's needs above your own, then this too is not your fault.
Another destructive message we have internalised from our culture is to continually strive to work harder and faster, to DO more, be productive citizens and sacrifice ourselves for the good of others (especially women for that last one!).
But this ultimately leads to imbalance and burn out, always "going, going, going" but never just being...
(Besides an extra 2 hours in every day)...
No, seriously, we're all busier than ever, but if taking care of yourself is at the bottom of your to-do list, you don't have a time problem, you have a SELF-WORTH problem...
We make time for what we prioritize, and we must MAKE OURSELVES A PRIORITY...
We must also recognise the gross imbalance of our "yang" based DOING culture, and find ways to bring in more "yin", time for just BEING, for slowing down, for rest, reflection and stillness.
3. You're a spiritual dabbler...
Oh gosh, this was ME for so many years!
Buying ALL the books from Eckhart Tolle, the Hay House authors and spiritual gurus..going to countless workshops and retreats, doing daily angel-card readings and binge-watching Oprah...
And there's nothing wrong with it, it's fascinating, positive and uplifting stuff!! The trouble with it is, it's all just a mental consumption of ideas rather than spiritual practice.
Which again, is fine...but for me at least, apart from being interesting and fun to consume, it didn't really CHANGE my life. I still often felt stressed, full of self-doubt and prone to anxiety.
I didn't really implement anything I had read or learnt, so I didn't really experience any true spiritual growth in the sense of becoming more grounded, present, joyful or at peace in my day-to-day life.
A simple, regular, spiritual practice.
It wasn't until I committed to a few simple, daily, mindfulness practices that I finally saw a real difference in how I felt and how I lived my life.
I overcame severe anxiety and started to discover what most of these books had been trying to tell me the WHOLE time - that peace and happiness are already inside of us and it's relatively simple to find it if we just practice consistently!
4. You're feeling so lost, anxious and confused you don't even know what to do with yourself...
If this is you. then I wish I could reach through the screen and give you a big hug...
Sometimes we go through periods in life of crisis and despair, where we can feel the rug has been pulled out from under us and we no longer know who we are anymore, or the way forward. It can be a very frightening and confusing time...
Though you may feel like your mind is going crazy and wouldn't be able to settle even if you tried, mindfulness meditation can be exactly what you need at times like these to find resilience, get grounded and centred again, and stop worrying about the future or dwelling on the past. Self-care is ESSENTIAL for you right now.
5. You’ve already tried to meditate and..... it didn't work
Maybe you've already tried to meditate once or even a few times and it "didn't work”...perhaps you thought you’d be able to empty your mind completely, or immediately feel deep peace and bliss.
Instead, you discovered that your mind is crazier than a bunch of monkeys on speed!
Or perhaps you know about or have experienced the benefits of meditation already but you haven’t been able to make it a regular habit or known if you’re doing it “properly”....perhaps your practice has faltered without the guidance of a teacher or the support of like-minded peers...
If his has been your experience, don’t feel bad! It’s not easy to learn to meditate on your own in isolation!
Patience, consistency, support and guidance.
Mindfulness meditation can produce incredible results within a very short period of time (changes in the brain can be measured within 2-3 weeks of consistent practice)...
But as with learning anything new, success comes from practicing the right techniques, applying yourself with commitment and diligence, and being able to get help and specific guidance from an experienced teacher. And there’s a reason why the Buddha valued the “sangha” or community of spiritual students so highly – we also learn best when we’re surrounded by others on a similar journey.
Finding More Calm, Joy and Ease in Your Day is Absolutely Possible For You and Easier Than You Think...
If you've made it this far, you ALREADY KNOW that deep-down, you're tired of this stressful, hum-drum existence and that making time for meditation and spiritual practice can transform your life on all levels...
But maybe you don’t know which practices are the most effective to get started with? And you don’t have a lot of time to waste on anything that doesn’t get results...
My step-by-step system of mindfulness training that I’m about to share with you will enable you to:
And who am I to be telling you that all of this is completely possible and achievable?
I’m Sharee James, a fully qualified Naturopath, Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation Instructor
I’m regularly featured as a wellness and personal growth expert on top sites, podcasts and magazines such as Mind Body Green, Yoga Life, Casa De Karma, Tiny Buddha, Positively Positive and PersonalGrowth.com
I’m part introverted nerd and part hippie-at-heart and some of my favourite things to do are to read (still a little addicted to those Hay House books!), swig Rooibos & Vanilla tea at all hours of the day, meditate (obvs!), stretch it all out in candle-lit yoga, and have an occasional wiggle to some good funk or afro-beat!
Many years back I suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome, burnout and at my worst, severe anxiety attacks. Through my own wellness journey I learned how to heal my body, calm my mind, honour my spirituality and make self-care a REAL priority.
To help YOU feel calm, happy & well so that you too can create a life of balance, joy & deep fulfillment
I believe the shallow, fast-paced way of life that society has thrusted upon us is destroying our health and causing the current epidemics of burnout, depression, anxiety, chronic disease and spiritual emptiness.
There IS another way...
We can slow down and listen to the deep wisdom within us...
We can start making our own well-being and happiness a REAL priority and give ourselves the care we really deserve.
We can discover that peace and contentment already live within us, if we can just quiet our busy minds enough to really pay attention.
I’ve been helping beautiful souls like you to do just that, through my live and online yoga and meditation classes, my spiritual retreats in the Himalayas of Nepal and more recently my transformational online mindfulness program “The Calmer Mind Course”.
Robyn was able to improve her sleep, halve her anxiety medication and overcome exhaustion within 6 weeks!
"Thank you Sharee, I have loved every minute of The Calmer Mind Course, the content and effect has surpassed all expectations. My stress levels were very high when I started the course and I was taking anxiety medication daily and felt constantly exhausted. The medication has halved after 6 weeks* and the the exhaustion has miraculously abated too. The anxiety that used to sit high in my chest constantly has dissipated, my body is noticeably more relaxed and I feel a lot more settled. I find that my body wants to do the meditations every night, it's like my sedative and I am able to fall asleep much more easily instead of lying awake for hours worrying. I am already recommending this course to everyone I talk to!!!"
- Robyn Leahy, AUSTRALIA
*Please note, Robyn was able to reduce her medication under the supervision of her doctor, and medication must NEVER be reduced, started or stopped without professional medical supervision
After a lifetime of stress, Anna finally feels positive and that her mood is under control...
"As an older woman who has felt stress most of her life, particularly in childhood, I felt it was just a part of my life and that it was too late to live differently. Before The Calmer Mind Course, my stress levels and mood felt out of my control, but now my stress and mood feels under my control and I am much more positive. I definitely recommend this course, the level of information - especially the scientific information around stress reduction and the body - is tremendous."
- Anna Kershaw-Barr, UK
The tools Janey learned in the Calmer Mind Course helped her cope with every mother's worst nightmare...
"When I started the course I really doubted if I’d complete it, wondering how I’d find the time. I work full-time and I’m also studying for my Master's. Added to that my husband and I were trying to buy our first house, plus a few weeks earlier I had found out I was pregnant with my first baby and I was feeling really nauseous and tired. I shouldn’t have worried as the course was very easy to fit around my busy schedule and it really helped me relax and feel calmer about all the things going on in my life. The course was a real saviour at the end of my first trimester when we were told there could be something wrong with the baby. The things I had learnt helped me stay sane during that month and thankfully all the tests eventually showed everything was fine. This is by far the best online course I have ever taken. It is so well prepared and easy to use. I have made immense improvements in my life through following all the practices in it and I know it is something that I'll repeat time and time again. It was an honour to participate and your course has made a real difference to my life Sharee. Thank you so much."
- Janey Brant-Beswick, UK
Agni was able to reduce her stress levels from a 7/10 to a 2/10 and release anxiety & self-criticism...
"When I started The Calmer Mind Course my stress levels felt like they were 7/10, by the end of the course they were down to 2/10. I really enjoyed the lectures, the topics were really interesting. All of the additional exercises and guided meditations were fantastic and really helped to cement what was covered in the teaching modules. I am less critical of myself now, and the meditations have really helped to release anxiety and not get stuck in any certain mental condition that I am having. Sharee's voice is also really nice to listen to."
- Agni Sam, LITHUANIA
Mother and daughter Sally & Kelly are feeling happy, calm and peaceful after The Calmer Mind Course...
KELLY: "I started The Calmer Mind Course with stress levels at 9/10 and they went down to a 4/10 by the second week. I have realised that I can learn to "turn off" immediate stressors when I have the tools to do so and become more present in everyday moments. I notice I am so happy after I listen to the meditations and lessons, I feel so good - and I have way less anxiety. Sharee's voice is also really relaxing - it put my puppy boxer to sleep!"
SALLY: "Sharee has presented everything in this course in a concise and well thought-out way. The way she has formulated all the knowledge she has gleaned on her journey and presented it is really beautiful and perfect...it is hard to say but in a deeper way it has already made big changes in my psyche. Just the sutra on santosha is amazing - it encompasses in it's definition contentment, gratitude, patience, non-judgment and forgiveness which can in turn really lead to having a calm and peaceful attitude unhampered by worry and judgment of situations that arise in life. I am grateful for Sharee's dedication to her work and her practice that she is sharing with us."
Kelly & Sally Stephenson, USA
Maria has gone from feeling anxious, stressed and emotional to clear and at ease...
"I thoroughly enjoyed this course! I started out feeling very anxious and stressed based on many factors in my life, but now I feel more at ease, less stressed and like I can process things more clearly and less emotionally. Thank you so much!"
-Maria Espinosa, USA
