10 minute guided meditation to help you build trust in yourself

Actor and meditation teacher Maude Hirst, founder of Meditate with Maude, demonstrates how to build trust in yourself and the people around you in this guided meditation

Do you look for reassurance outside of yourself, or do you have a good connection with your own trust? These are the questions that Yoga expert Maude Hirst asks in this ten minute guided meditation – meant to teach you how to trust yourself and your instincts.

If you constantly seek the opinions of other people instead of trusting your gut – this meditation is for you.

Maude’s guidance will help you strengthen the trust that you have within yourself, your intimate relationships and your friendships through mindfulness.

Meditation step #1 Sit comfortably

First, find a comfortable place to sit. I like to sit cross-legged. But if you have tight hip-flexors you might like to prop up your bottom with a cushion. Or sit with your back to a wall. Let your knees drop down towards the floor.

Meditation Step #2 Bring your mind back

When you meditate your mind will wander off. Don’t worry, that’s just what minds do. We’re programmed like that, so don’t beat yourself up. The trick is to notice when it happens and bring your mind back to your breath.

This way you’ll create a circular motion. Your mind wanders off. You notice and gently bring it back. No problem.

Meditation step #3 Stay alert

It’s easy to drift off when you’re meditating and you might feel yourself dropping off – don’t. Try to stay as conscious and alert as possible to experience the full benefits.
