How Meditation Makes You Money

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're going

to talk about the relationship

between meditation and making money.

Now, this is a topic that can sometimes

feel a little taboo to talk about.

I'm not going to talk about how

meditation makes you more effective

at your job or inspires you to

go off and make a lot of money.

Uh, instead, I'm going to talk

about more of sometimes the conflict

people have around this feeling of

I'm doing nothing when I meditate.

I'm just sitting here, I'm

not getting anything done.

And there are a lot of important things

I need to do in the world that might

relate to me making more money and being

able to support my family or sort of

craft a life that I'm interested in.

So I want to address

that because it's true.

You, you may not make money

while you're meditating.

But when you're done meditating, you'll

most likely feel less of an urge to

buy the thing that you thought would

fill the emptiness in your heart.

And when you really look at it as

so many of us, this consumer culture

that we're in, where we're conditioned

to buy things to feel more whole, to

be, feel more full, uh, to reach some

sort of lifestyle that's going to

give us the happiness that we want.

A lot of this has been conditioned into

us from a very early age and oper, and

often operates at a subconscious level

where we see something shiny and new

toy or, uh, even, uh, a certain kind

of home, some sort of material item,

and there's this feeling of, you know,

if I had that, then I'll finally feel

fulfilled or I won't feel this emptiness.

And that's where we really want

to catch ourselves because that

can be a never ending treadmill.

There are many people who have walked

that treadmill and are still on that

treadmill, trying to accumulate things,

build a life around them, especially

through material things to fill, uh,

this feeling of there being a void.

But meditation goes right

to the heart of that.

It cultivates a fulfillment

right here without anything other

than your mind and your body.

And the more that we do that, the more we

step out of the meditation, come back into

the world and realize we don't actually

need as much as we thought we needed.

The more you feel comfortable and

whole in your own being, the less

you need to manage, manufacture

the world around you for comfort.

So even though you might not be making

money while you're meditating, you are

making money in a different kind of

way, in that you won't be spending as

much on things that you might not need,

things that won't actually fulfill you.

So hope this gives you a new way to

think about practice, especially in

the context of your relative life.

Thank you for your practice and let's

settle in for today's meditation.
