    The perfect resource for anyone wanting to start or strengthen their meditation process

    I could not set this book down. I’ll admit I was antsy to dive in to all the goodness after having recently restarted my personal yoga practice and was looking forward to expanding my meditation knowledge, but the ease of reading this made it so digestible and exciting to keep turning the pages. It is so clear and concise in explaining the importance and process of a meditation practice and can challenge you to deepen your practice and ensure it’s working for your benefit.

    Madison has a way of connecting with readers and bringing abstract ideas to life through her words so that you can easily apply them in your daily practice and daily life. She provides all of the necessary resources you may need to start meditating and then provides additional resources to continue to grow your practice.

    Cannot recommend this book enough! It is one I will keep on my go-to shelf to reference for years and years to come. Such a blessing and thankful to have it as a trusted resource <3

    Wow. Where do I begin. This book in one day has made an impact on me! Full of so many divine meditations where you feel the light run through you. I was able to relate to and do each type of meditation without second guessing myself and simply be fully present in the moment. That is HUGE.

    I own over 100 books on mindfulness and this book is by far the GREATEST book I have read on meditation and now in my top 3 books I would recommend to others. I am ordering 5 more books to just gift to friends and family. This has made mediation so easy, natural, and beautiful. I always strived to create a good mediation routine for myself but struggled thinking it can be so complex and just didn’t know where to start or how to do it “right” or was just overwhelmed with the different ways to meditate and how to do it myself. Madison teaches in the book that there is no “right” way and simplifies it all for you. She created such a gentle, straightforward, yet broad (making it amendable to whatever you prefer) approach in this book. If you are reading this and have come across this book it is not a coincidence. This book for anyone and everyone!!!! You won’t regret getting this.

    Humble and Wise

    Over the years, I have dipped in and out of meditation, mostly fearing the stillness. Enter Madison’s book. She has a humble and accessible approach and yet she clearly carries wisdom in her words. She seamlessly wove some pop culture references (e.g., The Big Bang Theory TV show) in with the ancient and mystical philosophy behind the practice. I am still a novice but am gaining comfort with meditation by applying the suggestions in this book.

    This book is true to it’s title, it is simple and straightforward.
    Madison explains meditation in an everyday kind of way, for the “common people” who might normally shy away from fancy or overly specific explanations. This book helps you look at why you might be having issues settling into a regular meditation practice and how to ease your way into a regular meditation practice. Silence is the hardest thing for me when meditating, my mind constantly races between thoughts, Madison addresses this and gives simple ideas of how to overcome these distractions. Along with that I tend to want to focus on details, which then makes my mind wander. This book emphasizes focusing on feelings instead of the details of meditation. She also gives suggestions of other books to check out on topics she addresses for people wanting to further research these simple concepts. My favorite thing about this book is the emphasis on there is no one way to meditate. Many examples are given of different types of meditation and examples of how to do those types. She encourages you to try them all out for yourself to see what works best for you, without making it seem like an overwhelming task to try them. Fantastic book, quick read, and wonderful reference for starting to learn how to meditate.

    Rated 5 out of 5
    An excellent resource for those learning to meditate!
    This is not only an excellent resource for those of you who are just learning to meditate but a wonderful reminder of all the possible ways to continue to make meditation work for you. Madison makes it simple yet awe-inspiring as she encourages you to move through the “new” of meditation so you experience how powerful, (free!), and life-changing it can be. This book will be highlighted in my meditation gatherings and workshops as a “go-to” resource as you start and then sustain an easy and delightful meditation practice.

    Truly life-changing
    I am admittedly a bit of a stranger to meditation. Madison managed to make learning about it in several different variations both entertaining and approachable.

    This book has given me the tools to coax peace into my life when otherwise thought impossible.

    Don’t hesitate, just buy it. You’ll thank yourself and Madison.

    Choose a meditation practice that feels right for you

    I’ve used many of Madison’s resources and this book holds her familiar guidance that is grounded and clear.

    Her introduction shares an early meditation experience that I’m sure many can relate to: “all I had seen were the backs of my eyelids.” Leaving a meditation class assuming she had done it completely wrong.

    This book will not overwhelm you with complex spiritual terminology or ideals. It gently guides you through 5 types of meditation: breath, visualization, loving gaze, mantra and active.

    ‘Creating a Sacred Space for Meditation’ was one of my favourite chapters in this book. It contained new information for me such as to face East to receive subtle rays of wisdom that radiate westward over the Earth. I also enjoyed suggestions such as including representations of the four elements (fire, water, earth and air).

    But for me, the most meaningful advice of all: remember to ask for help from your spiritual support team of Angels, Masters and Beings. Because of free will, your team cannot help you unless you ask for it. Pray for Divine Intervention.

    Straightforward and BEAUTIFUL!

    First this book is absolutely gorgeous. The quality and photos are absolute perfection. This is straight to the point and a super easy way to start a meditation practice or clarify/improve one you already have. Madison’s kind energy speaks so clearly through this book, it’s as if she’s in the room guiding you herself while you read. Definitely recommend for anyone curious about meditation!

    I have truly been so stuck and frustrated with mediation. I was trying way to hard and in doing so defeated the whole purpose of the practice. After reading this book it finally clicked ! This book was so very helpful and really just broke down meditation on such an easy level. So many great tips and different ways to meditate. Many in which I have never even heard of before. So grateful for this book. Thank you Madison!! ♥️
