A Defining Moment: How Mindfulness Meditation Made Me What I Am Today

I was a sheltered kid with thick glasses from a small town 12 hours North of Toronto.

Sensitive and different, I ate my lunch in the high school bathroom. By the time I was 16, I paced incessantly. I was hyperactive, moody and searching.

At 17, I left home on a Greyhound bus with only a suitcase and a guitar. I ended up auditioning for a band that put me on the road playing music six nights a week for 14 years.

A defining moment in my life took place in 1975. A few months before, I had joined my first band and we were on the first leg of an extensive Western Canadian tour. We pulled into a beat-up motel for a night’s rest from the road.

In the middle of the night, I woke up in a cold sweat, shaking. All I kept saying to myself is, “What have I done? Why did I leave the comfort of my family and friends for the vagabond life of a musician?” I felt alone and scared. I tried to use the tools my family and church gave me, so I prayed to God. Praying didn’t really make me feel any better. I wanted to know why God wasn’t making me feel less afraid.

The next day, I made a commitment to immerse myself in absolutely everything that would help me find a way to relieve my fears. I started going to book stores for answers. I read books on mysticism, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, western psychology and countless others. After reading about the practice of mindfulness meditation, I decided to give it a try.

An Epiphany!

Within a few months of practice, I had an epiphany! Meditation was a way to be free from fear!

As I continued to practice, I came to see myself more clearly. I began to enjoy a deep sense of peace. Meditation not only helped me to remove negative thinking, it helped me free myself of anger and fear. It helped me cool down.

I came to understand that I was the one who was creating my realities by how I thought, how I felt, and by my conditioned tendencies. It was my actions, behaviors and what I attracted or became attracted to that created my outcomes.

Transformation

Meditation cleared away many of my limiting beliefs and feelings of unworthiness and low self-esteem. It awakened my creativity and inspiration. I slept better. It made me see that I’d never have to be lonely or afraid again.

Soon, my thinking processes became more coherent, and I became more confident. Meditation helped me focus my attention. I began to realize that I could do anything I set my mind to and that I could face any challenge.

After leaving the road and settling down, mindfulness meditation helped me become successful in business, real estate, audio engineering, song writing, teaching, public speaking and my 30-year successful relationship with my wife.

The simple act of closing my eyes and emptying my mind completely transformed my life!

Clarity Mind

Over the years, I’ve become a mini-expert on mindfulness meditation, personal growth and lifestyle design. As a Certified Professional Coach, I work to help clients achieve their full potential, deepen their understanding of how the mind works, and uncover their inner truths.

I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping people develop to their full potential through my workshops, products, masterminds and private consulting.

Since then, I’ve worked with hundreds of private clients, spoken in front of groups, created Affirmation Music for Better Outcomes and teach mindfulness meditation at the Clarity Mind Institute.
