I’m just so excited I can’t sit still!

You’re the life of the party. You’re constantly doing crazy things. When people are around you they feel excited and entertained.

But damn if there aren’t times when you would do anything to just relax and be focused.

If this is you, try doing Samatha and Zen. (See the link at the top of the article for guides).

 

Quiet Person:

You’re a quiet person. And quiet people are often the most powerful people around. You keep to yourself like, always. You don’t like to speak unless spoken to. And if you’re honest, you are kind shy. Sometimes you wish you could just let go and be a loud person, just for a little while, just to see what it’s like.

Well now you can!

There’s one meditation technique that will let your beautiful inner-voice out. It’s called “Open Monitoring Meditation”. It’s a technique that gets you out of your thoughts and more into the real world. It’s very liberating! Again,

Extremely kind person:

You are the absolute kindest person on the planet. You’re so kind that you never stop giving. You give to family. You give to friends. You give to absolute strangers. And everyone loves you for it!

Oh. You probably don’t give enough to yourself though.

Most extremely kind people give to everyone else except themselves.

Time to change.

Today you are going to give to you. You’re going to treat yourself. You’re going to lavish love on you.

How?

You’re going to do Loving Kindness Meditation.

Loving Kindness Meditation is all about creating love and positive feelings for people. It’s often done to make us feel good about others. But you already love everyone! That’s why you’re going to do loving kindness focusing on yourself.

Highly sensitive empath:

You are the most in-tune person you know. You’re so aware of other people’s thoughts and feelings. You have a super power. It’s the super-power known as empathy.

Empathy is great. Because you’re an empath you know so much about other people.

Problem with being an empath is it’s hard to tune off. And it can be exhausting!

Sometimes you need to be able to let go of other people’s emotions so you can relax.

That’s why you’re going to do Mindfulness Meditation.

Mindfulness Meditation is a technique that trains the mind to stay in the present moment. That way, you can safeguard yourself from those emotions that sometimes get the better of you.

Read my ultimate guide for empathetic people for tons of great tips to make life as an empath easier.

“I’m the king of the world!”:

You’re the king / queen of the world. You focus on you. And because of that you’re successful, healthy, good-looking, and everyone thinks highly of you.

You rock.

Now that you’ve perfected yourself, it’s time to enjoy and appreciate other people. It’s time to be about others.

That’s why you’re going to practice Karuna Meditation. This is a powerful old Buddhist technique that trains the mind to be highly compassionate. With this technique you will find a new level of happiness as you connect with other people more than ever before.

I already know it all!

So you already know everything and I’m basically wasting my breath here because nothing I could say could impress you.

You’re bored of the trivialities of life. You long for something deeper. You’ve already meditate before and frankly, what’s the point.

My friend, it’s time for you to go deeper.

In that link are my secret deep meditations for people like you who want to experience something more. 

Or you could just try Merkaba if you’re feeling brave.

I’m bored of the superficiality of existence to be honest

To you, life is plastic and this whole world is one big exercise in vanity.

You wish you could let go of it all, chuck out the credit cards, not worry about work, find some trans-dimensional wonderland where things were… more enlightened.

My friend you just might be interested in Huna.

Classy to a fault:

You are so classy you’re basically on a pedestal. Look at you, so high above the world. Everyone looks up to you. You’re a role model for all your friends and family.

It can be lonely at the top, though. And sometimes you just want to let your hair down and go nuts.

That’s why you’re about t experience complete personal liberation.

You’re going to do Osho’s Dynamic Meditation Techniques. You will be nervous of this technique when you try it. Don’t be. I promise: this is going to make you feel absolutely sensational.

 

Wounded romantic:

You’re so romantic you know everyone of Shakespeare’s sonnets by heart. “Shall I compare thee to a rose?” “Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo? Deny thy father and—”

Everyone loves you because you’re so rich in spirit and so romantic. It’s like you have ten times the amount of soul as all your friends and family.

Old scars heal slowly, though. And the romantic life can be a painful one.

There are many meditations that you can use to transform your love life and to find intimacy in your relationships. Try Metta and Karuna.

All business. No games:

Your career is a long line of successes and your bank account is extra chunky. Everyone respects you because you are pure business.

Being all business all the time can be a real drainer, though. Sometimes you would love to have a laugh and just feel a sense of fun, you know?

Well you are about to feel all the joy, happiness, and fun you could want. How? You’re going to practice Smiling Buddha Meditation.

This meditation technique creates joy deep in your soul.

Learn Smiling Buddha Meditation . You will love it. It is the very best meditation for your personality type.

AHHHHHHH! I’m stressed and I need to chill right now

Woah.

You are pretty stressed, huh? What you need is a serious spot of relaxation. Some inner Zen. A little serenity, you know?

Sound impossible, doesn’t it? I hear ya. Life is so stressful and budy it can be hard to chiill.

Good news:

There are tons of relaxing meditations that will make ever you chill out.

Atheist / Agnostic

If you’re an atheist or agnostic and you just hate the idea of doing anything remotely spiritual, you can still meditate.

The world is more enlightened about meditation today. And today, all kinds of people are meditating.

5 Ways To Improve Your Personality

1: Practice self reflection

Ask yourself my self reflection questionsThese will give you a healthy perspective of yourself.

In particular, ask yourself what the good parts of your personality are.

Remember, only decent people ever consider that they might need to change. Bad people think the world needs to change

So:

  • Write a list of all the great parts of your personality.

Go ahead. Do it now. If you don’t do it right now and instead say “I’ll do it later” you probably never will do it.

2: Write a list of things you do want to change

Write a list of all the things you want to change.

Think about:

  • Attitude
  • Beliefs
  • Behaviours
  • Habits
  • Your career
  • Your relationships.
  • Anything else you might like to change

Done it? All right. So those things on your list, they’re the aspects of yourself you’re not happy with, right? They’re the things you want to change, yes? Okay. Keep that list with you.

3: Find one person that has one quality you want and compliment them for it

You’re on Facebook, right? Okay cool, that’s going to help you a lot here. I want you to find one person on your friends list that has one trait that you wish you had.

Now, find someone who doesn’t do the thing you do that you don’t like (e.g one of the things from part 2) and does something better instead.  

Found the person?

Send them a message. Tell them that you think they’re great because they do that one thing that you don’t do, the one thing you wish you did do.

Go on. Do it. I promise that you’re going to feel great as soon as you do this.

Done it? Okay cool.

4: Wait for them to respond. And then listen to them

You now have to wait for that person to respond to the compliment you just gave them. They’re going to be really happy that you complimented them (presuming you gave a nice compliment, that is). And they’re going to want to talk about it. Why? Because people love talking about things they’re good at.

And here’s the really amazing thing.

That person is the number one person in your life who is capable of giving you the trait that you want.

If you wish you exercised more, your pro-exercise friend is your role model for that one trait. If you wish you were socially confident, your really sociable friend is your role model for that, and so on.

As soon as that person gets back in contact with you on Facebook, they’re going to start talking to you about the thing they do well. They will probably open up to you and tell you all sorts of things about the positive trait. They’ll tell you why they’re confident or fit or hard working or whatever, they’ll tell you how they feel when they do that thing they do, they’ll tell you everything.

5: Listen to them

If you chat over Facebook, pay close attention to what they say. But it is better if you can get that person to meet up for a chat sometime. Trust me they’ll probably still talk to you about their special trait (unless they’re very humble). When they speak, listen to them. This is your personal role model (for that one trait) telling you how to do the thing you wish you could do. Listen. Their words are like pure gold.

In your circle of friends you have people who are amazing at the things you wish you were amazing at. You have people with the personality traits you wish you had. Talk to them about it. And listen.
