Note: I am not connected to the app in any way. I am just a big fan, who changed his life. So, now I want to help others do the same.
Alert: This post contains a lot of my shitty feeling talks. You can directly go down and see the app if you are not interested.
Around two months ago I was watching a youtube video in which, this person named August Bradley said this:
"Meditation is not about making your mind go blank – it’s about being completely present. If we don’t learn to be present in the moment, we’re just going to have a collection of memories that we weren’t even there for".
This touched me somewhere deep. I was a kind of fidgety individual and was not able to concentrate on anything particular for long enough and this was hurting me and my life immensely (My ambitions were definitely still driving me to do things but they were just painful drag, i.e., I was kind of unhappy inside). The above statement started a train of thoughts in my brain: I realized that the real reason for my happiness is me not being present, me living for the future. So, Meditation seemed like something that can solve the problem (definitely I was skeptical at that time).
I found this app called “WAKING UP” by Sam Harris after doing some research, I downloaded it and listened to the getting started audio. That first 10 min audio for getting started was enough to convince me that this was something different. I followed the app as they said for almost 3 months now and not kidding I am now l feeling a kind of peace in me. Some people may say that meditation is just getting relaxed like Xanax but I can tell it is just a side effect of meditation. It is so much more than that. You start thinking so much more and noticing things that you didn’t notice before. Now every second I get my mind auto meditates. (if you think all this is bullshit just try it yourself)
Is this app free?
The app uses a really crazy monetization scheme: You can pay if you want, otherwise just simply email the support and they will give you one year of access for free. (this is explained in the getting started audio in the app). In my case they activated it in almost 15 minutes.
You can use these links:
- With referral: (I won’t get any benefit, you will get the first month free without emailing support after that you can email and extend it to a year) Waking Up App + 1 month
- Without referral direct play store: Waking up App (playstore)
Images to prove my point:
- These are not normal rating it is really hard to find such rating on the play store for lifestyle apps.
Comment if you face any issue. Also, share your experience with meditation (I have not shared the shitty experience that I have had with meditation before I found this app because I didn’t want to get this topic to get too long)
Have A dynamic Day!
