How Meditation Can Help You Let Go of the Past, Forgive Yourself, and Move Forward

With Megan Monahan

There are many different modalities, types, and ways to meditate. There is no wrong way to meditate. No matter how young, old, new, or experienced you are with meditation, making space for your thoughts always comes with beneficial side effects: relief from yesterday, peace for today, and promise for tomorrow. Though healing through meditation is never easy, it’s always worth it. 

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I speak with Megan Monahan and discuss how most people, knowingly or not, tend to hang onto past situations that define who they are. Unfortunately, these are often negative influences that cause us to react a certain way to situations and can result in limiting beliefs. But Megan walks us through her story of recognizing her past struggles and trauma, working through them using meditation, and creating a bright and hopeful future through her practices.
