Healing myself through meditation

Healing myself through meditation

Hello beautiful ones! As some of you may know, I've just returned from an inspiring 7-day retreat with Dr. Joe Dispenza, a renowned expert on personal development and the mind-body connection. For those unfamiliar with his work, I can't recommend his books and videos enough.

Through this blog post, I'm eager to share with you the insightful lessons I've absorbed that have profoundly shifted my perspective. Additionally, I'm looking forward to providing a personal update on the positive developments in my health journey.

Stay tuned for more details – I'm excited to dive into these transformative experiences with you all!

I had a compelling reason to participate in a retreat led by Dr. Joe Dispenza.  I confess that his books had long sat on my shelf, underappreciated. Fascinated by the concept that the mind has the power to influence physical well-being, and faced with personal health hurdles, including persistent migraines, fatigue, forgetfulness, and especially disruptive restless leg syndrome, I sought a deeper understanding.

Despite ongoing treatment and consultations with my neurologist, the severity of my symptoms was escalating, and even expanding beyond my legs. Despite high doses of magnesium and iron, relief seemed elusive. Then, a scheduled MRI brought to light an unexpected discovery: a benign meningioma behind my right eye. This revelation led me directly to Dr. Dispenza's books, and his retreat, in hopes of harnessing my own mind’s capacity for healing.

Spoiler alert..I have some health updates and changes to tell you at the end 😍

Arriving in Orlando for the retreat filled me with a mix of nerves and excitement – this was a leap outside my usual bounds. I’m shy and anxious. How would I get through this? Something with over 2000 people from all over the world? From the first day, I embraced the new routine which began with a 6am meditation. Dr. Joe Dispenza's enlightening sessions framed our days, punctuated by periods of contemplation and powerful hour-long meditations. The most captivating were the walking meditations; we'd listen to guidance through earphones, stepping forward as if embodying our future selves, before drawing our consciousness back whilst lying down—all within the safe confines of the retreat.

Here, I tread carefully, acknowledging that my experiences might stretch the bounds of belief. But I invite you to consider with an open mind what I witnessed: individuals rising from wheelchairs, and others regaining sight or hearing. It was as if I was in the midst of real-time miracles.

So during the seminars I often wrote notes which I will share some of with you now. 

💛 ‘ We have become addicted to stress. We must take our intention away from our outer life’ - This one rung so true for me. I was living in self pity. A poor me mentality. But what favours was it actually doing me? 

💛 ‘Your body has been programmed. Weaken the connection and circuits and make new ones’ - This is through quietening our mind through meditation and becoming aware of our thoughts. How often do we think thoughts that bring us down? 

💛 ‘ The hardest part of change is feeling uncomfortable’ - We get stuck in our ways. But when we reset ourselves and change the program magic happens 

💛 ‘Predict your future by creating it’ - Install your new beliefs through meditation. Become the person you want to be. Happier and healthier. 

💛 ‘Before reacting to anything, ask yourself “what would love do”? - Become love. People who are nasty, jealous, spiteful..are unhappy within themselves. Real strength is being love 

💛 ‘Free your body from your past’ - Those stored emotions will only make you unwell. You can reflect on your past, but when you can look back on a memory without the emotion … now that’s wisdom. 

💛 ‘Where you place your intention, you place your energy’ - What are you placing your intention on daily? Is it benefiting you? 

💛 ‘I made myself sick, I can make myself well’ - in many cases, medication is needed. But most of the time medicine only masks the problem or can make symptoms worse. It’s proven that our body can create its own pharmacy. 

💛 ‘If we fall pray to our suffering, we fall pray to our past’ - It’s time to change the script 

💛 ‘When you feel an emotion, you are connecting new wires in the brain’ - When we become nothing, no one, no where through meditation we are connected to source. Our authentic self. Then when we feel love, gratitude and joy we are making changes within ourself. 

💛 ‘Meditation is a system reboot’ - I came back from the retreat, reset and rebooted. I was no longer identifying myself as unwell, shy and anxious. I was Zoe 2.0 

💛 ‘Meditation is a mind upgrade’ - Surrender and let go of the past 

💛 ‘ If you meditate when you don’t feel like it, that is growth. If you can conquer yourself you can conquer anything - Your mind will give you excuses why you can do it. Do it anyway 

💛 ‘ The more we meditate and quiet the mind, the faster we become one and we aren’t affected by the outside world’ - what’s not to love about that? 

💛 ‘Focus on feeling well. Our body doesn’t know the difference between what’s real and what’s not. If we think of a painful past memory it will believe it’s happening to you in the present’ - When you feel well, your tricking your body to make it happen 

💛 ‘Walk as if you’re the person you wish to become’ - hold that head up high. Walk as if. It feels incredible 

I’m not going to go too heavy on my notes, because I won’t speak it as well as the expert. But head over to dr joes website and you can find his articles with proof, and you can purchase his meditations. You can also find videos of transformation on YouTube, and interviews as well. So before I share my meditation tips, I wanted to tell you something exciting. Since returning from Orlando, I’m no longer on my medication for restless leg syndrome. It’s pretty much completely gone. My headaches have completely stopped, my energy is up, and my anxiety has vanished. Today, I went to the hospital to see my ophthalmologist. They test my field of vision, as the tumour is behind my eye. They were shocked to discover my vision is improving. It didn’t make sense. They even said, I must have learnt to beat the test! When I asked if a meningioma can go away or shrink on its own, they said “absolutely not” .. you can imagine the determination this has given me. Oh how I can’t wait to prove them wrong. I have an mri booked for January so watch this space. 

So if you’ve got this far into the blog, I’m so grateful you have spent this time learning about my journey. It means a lot. Finally, here are my meditation tips. Let’s set this as a 30 day challenge: 

💛 Meditate every day, no excuses. No time to meditate? I run a incredibly busy business. I have two small children, I’m writing a book, and creating a clothing line. Not to mention, running a household and managing every day life. My solution . I set an alarm for 5am before the day begins. You can find a spare bit of time any moment of the day. You will find time for Netflix, or tik tok. Find time for your own self care 

💛 Use headphones and an eye mask. Block out the world. Don’t lay down, you will fall asleep. Sitting on the floor can be uncomfortable. Sit on a comfy chair or edge of your bed 

💛 You can’t meditate because your mind wanders? If I told you to learn a language in one day could you do it? Practice makes perfect. Your mind will wonder, that’s normal. Just don’t give up. If you stick with it, you become stronger 

💛 There’s no such thing as a bad meditation. Even if your mind wonders, or you struggle to relax. You made time for yourself and that’s a win 

leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts. Let me know if you get involved in the challenge too 💛

I will soon post my daily routine, along with diet and supplements. Keep a lookout 👀

Loved reading your first-hand account of Dr Joe’s workshop/retreat and am so delighted and encouraged to hear about your positive health benefits! I am guilty of having such books of wisdom lying dusty on shelves- more because I don’t know where to start and what to stick to! I read your recommendation for the lumenate app, which I’ve just tried (and love)…but in terms of paying for the full content? I’m not sure. Can you explain what it’s done for you? Did Joe Dispenza recommend it too? Thank you 🙏🏼💜


Hi Zoe, life was very difficult as I had been taking care of my elderly very ill Mum for years as well as my Dad who’s in his 90s and when ‘the virus’ hit I was overwhelmed. I began qigong which helped a bit but then I found Dr Joe. I downloaded some of his meditations (the morning one is my favourite) in 2021, bought and read three of his books, did the work and they have brought me great peace. I love connecting with the Creator every day and my life has improved (though I’m constantly selecting more). And then I found you! Many of the issues you have resonate with me. I truly believe we can heal ourselves so am delighted you are so feeling so positive. All the very best in your healing, your family and your business. You’re doing a great job xxx


Thank you Zoe for sharing I’m so thrilled to hear about your positive experience at Orlando retreat. It’s really nice to hear some feedback from people who have attended I believe it can help others like myself stay on track and make more sense of it all. I can’t wait to hear more about your results in January and the reaction of your doctor. Also what is your most favorite medication(s) of Joe Dispenza?
Thank you!

Sound dalf but I don’t even know where to start with meditation! Definitely need it as the negative energy in work gets me down. Thanks Zoe 💛


Thank you for all of the things you post, including this. They’ve helped and inspired me so much. Sending you love and light Zoe 🙏💖


Thank you for sharing Zoe, so inspiring. I’d love to do this.


How lovely to read about your experiences. I am a great believer in self help without medication and have just completed an eight week course. It took a long time to build up to an explosion of anxiety infront of the family. Meditation allows you to understand yourself and I am still working towards a bigger goal. We learn so much from talking to other people who have the same mindset. I wish you well Zoe


Thank you so much for sharing your journey of healing yourself with mediation I am a true believer of this but a terrible practiser die to being a care manager I’m always so busy I’m very good at telling people how to look after themselves but very bad at doing this for myself
I have reflexology once a month which is a life savour for me but it stopped in March due to my therapist not being well for a good few months I felt so anxious panic attacks and just not myself so last month my therapist was back and now I fell like myself again
The moral of this is all these treatments like meditation reflexology etc they really do work
I wish you every success in your journey Zoe xxx

Thank you so much for sharing your journey Zoe, I’m very grateful! I have been following Joe for sometime now, but need to be more consistent with the meditations! You have inspired me and you can defo count me in your 30 day challenge!

I’m so glad to hear you are healing, wishing you well on your journey and very excited to hear more 😊❤️


Thank you for sharing Zoe! I’m reading his You are the placebo book- fascinating! Lots of love, J 💓


Thanks for sharing Zoe.
I am trying a different path to meditation – Kadampa Buddhist Meditation, and you have inspired me to make more of an effort with it.


The universe has brought me to this article, thank you for sharing Zoe. Do you have any recommendations/ specific meditations for children?


You are truly inspirational Zoe I admire you so much & all that you do, I can not wait to hear more on this. I have listened to Dr Joe Dispenza & it’s true your thoughts really do create your reality, so many test have proven this over the years. I will be starting the 30 meditation challenge also :)
Thank you Xx


Oh Zoë I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this! Joe Dispenza is AMAZING! Your thoughts really do create your reality 🥰 I look forward to seeing you grow stronger and stronger and watch your dreams come alive 💗

Love and healing light Mel xxx

Thanks for sharing Zoe, I started on the Joe Dispenza journey in January and it’s been life changing. I’ve overcome fears, broken old beliefs about myself and manifested my dream man after three years single. I’m happier, more successful and just feel whole and happy regardless of what life seems to throw. I buy most of your creams as that’s the only thing I use now. I love this journey for you and please keep sharing it 🧡


I have believed in the mind body connection for years. Since developing psoriasis this year, my 60th year, I am convinced there is some connection to my childhood trauma. I’m working through it. Good luck with your journey 💛

Nicola Williscroft

This sounds amazing and has inspired me to challenge myself to meditate. Something I have been procrastinating about for a long time. I wish you the very best and will be looking out for an update. I will also take a look at Joe dispenza’s video and book. Thanks for sharing x

Karen Spiller

Wow Zoe, I love this and ever so slightly envious that you were able to go a Dispenza retreat. I have wanted to go for the past year but I can’t afford it at the moment. The time will come when I can, I am going to predict that this can also be me in the future. It sounds transformative, a rebirth and I seriously need it to clear out the rot that has set in with life’s downfalls. Thank you for reminding me to not give up x

Hayley Hanson

Wow what an amazing journey you are about to go on …… I’ll be keeping a close eye out for your book too xx stay safe and hold onto all your hopes and dreams .. miracles really do come true xxx

Thank you so much for sharing your blog I have ptsd I’m going to try meditation


I am in! Please share everything you can. I believe we all have those inner ugly feelings that won´t let us move forward totally as we´d like. I was a kid that suffered a lot in hands of grandmother and aunt and uncle, all because mom thought it was best to run behind her husband (my father) and his unfaithful rants…so I was a roadblock in her way. She sent me from Ecuador, South America to SC, USA. I always felt not loved and hated. I thought I had left all that behind, but now at 51 yrs. I still find myself crying over that time. I too feel sorry for myself, having lived a life that others decided for me, not what was best for me but what worked for them. I will definitely get on this inner healing challenge. Thank you Zoe! Unfortunately I have not had the chance to get your products down here to Ecuador, South America but I definitely follow your vibe. Hugs and Kisses ♥


Darling get well sending healing vibes your way xxxxx
