M in the M.A.G.I.C.A.L method

Ever since I was a Teenager I have meditated. And I don’t mean chanting or sitting in the lotus position really it was just plain reflection. I was accused as a child of daydreaming but whatever you want to call it, it has helped me be the grounded individual that I am today staying calm amidst the chaos, staying focus in the crisis.

Meditation really is exploring with your mind what your problems are, trying to find solutions, mulling challenges over and sometimes it just helps sitting down and just being in the moment and focusing on your breath coming in and going out.

Even if you do that just once a day for one minute i.e sit in silence and do this without fail for 6 weeks, you will find you start achieving MORE in LESS TIME.

Try it then increase the minute to two minutes just sitting in silence and do this for 6 weeks and then increase it to three minutes and every 6 weeks you will find you are meditating for up to 15 minutes.

Then incorporate this meditative practice into your daily routine meditating between 1 to 15 minutes.

I tend to meditate in the morning but there have been times I have meditated in the evenings.

Just find a time that fits well with your lifestyle and routine and you have less interruptions.

I tend to put my phone on silent and I have found meditating really relaxes me.

I have found meditating regulates my breathing and calms my nervous system.

I have found although it is difficult at first it eventually clears my mind.

The noise in my head becomes LESS

Meditation also allows me to CONNECT with myself

What I really feel

What I really think

And I also enter a whole universe inside myself

Each of us houses a universe inside of us and to explore the different worlds is FASCINATING

You can travel to many realms and back to where you are within a millisecond and without paying a penny

So next time try it meditating by sitting in silence

Remember Meditation does not have to be religious or chanting.


This is what the M stands for in my M.A.G.I.C.A.L Method the one I teach High Achievers!

Try it!

I would love to know if this simple method of meditation helped you achieve MORE in LESS time.




Having qualified as a Social Worker in July 1991 from Coventry University, it has been over two decades that I have been on the front line working with children and young people who are traumatized and on the margins of society. Although I studied Psycho-dynamic counselling for two years at Goldsmiths College (1991-1993), I decided to integrate Psycho-dynamic theories and skills into my Social work practice and flirt with and immerse myself in studying Islam as well as interfaith dialogue and friendships. For the last 20 years, I have been working in a multi-disciplinary Youth Offending Team in South London, comprised of Professional colleagues from different faiths and cultural backgrounds trying to support young people in the criminal justice system. I am married and mother to three sons, and juggle Social Work and interfaith dialogue with my writing, studying and the needs of home and family.
