Light, who she said had a “quiet confidence”, introduced her to transcendental meditation.
She said she was skeptical at first of what he called Vedic Meditation, concerned about “the thoughts, the distractions, the boredom of it”.
However, it wasn’t long before it started having a positive impact on her life.
Meghan said: “Not gonna lie, I rolled my eyes thinking ‘Oh give me a break, mystic man’. But low and behold, this mystical man was right.”
She added: “I can’t put my finger on the why or the how, but I will tell you this much, for me… I am just happier. And meditation has much to do with that.”
The Duchess explained the type of meditation has been praised by people such as Russell Simmons and said people claim it “changes their life and the trajectory of their future – more success, more fulfillment, more happiness, less worry”.
She was intrigued by the idea and decided to take Light’s course.
She added: “I know you’ll think of a million excuses as to why this is silly or why you don’t have time for it; much like the day I told Light I didn’t have enough hours in the day to do it, and he told me that’s why I needed to meditate twice as much.”
Meghan included her own 5-step process for those who want to follow in her footsteps.
The first step is to get into a comfortable seating position.
The second is to set a finish time, but don’t set an alarm as this may shock you out of your meditation.
Then you should notice your breathing and when your mind wanders.
The fourth step is to just embrace your thoughts.
The former actress said: “It’s okay to get lost in your thoughts. And whenever you realise you’re meditating, just passively notice your breathing again.
“Let all of the thoughts come and go – as you forget and become aware that you are meditating, it’s best not to resist any thoughts, including ideas, songs, conversations, images, feelings or sensations.
“Embrace all mental experiences without concern, remorse, or regret.”
Finally, she said meditators should check the time periodically and when they reach their finish time they should open their eyes and bring themselves back to the present.
