So you want to start meditating? That’s great! Have no idea where to start? I was there too! Between the apps, the youtube videos, and books all saying slightly conflicting information it is hard to know where to turn and who to listen to. I’m going to dispel any sort of myth that I’m an expert on the subject right now and just let you know that I’m a normal dude who has been doing this for a while.

I was lucky enough to have my own personal comic book shaman to guide me when I was getting into comics. This is going to be my attempt to do the same for those of you out there who are ready to jump from the silver screen to the inked page.
Your first goal is to shape, with extreme detail what you actually want from your wealth. Is it a trip to Cancun?
