Well, it’s pretty sad that I’ve been gone for so long I forgot my password…
Hope all are well and HAPPY!
New FREE 21 day meditation again, just in-time for summer vacations
I find that so many people are afraid of meditation, they think they need to sit an be perfectly still, some people think they need to be quite and not have a thought at all and others are just simply afraid of what their brain might think if allowed to slow down. The first thing you should do is NOT judge yourself. Just like the ocean, the waves of thoughts come and go, the key is not getting attached to them, bring yourself back to the moment at hand and take a breath. If you can manage to have a full 60 seconds of pure quite, WELL DONE!
Start with a guided meditation like the one above, then move on from there to a mantra meditation ( repeating an affirmation) with your breath, like SO…. on the inhale and HUMM…. on the exhale… an then some day you’ll find yourself sitting and breathing and escaping into a the gap, if even only for a few moments 😉
enjoy the journey… No Judgement!
Sit in Quiet and just be. Don’t fight your thoughts. Don’t control the situation, just sit…….and………..breathe….Start by sitting in any position that is comfortable, as long as you don’t collapse your heart. Try to keep your shoulder’s back and your heart open. If you need to sit against a wall at first to keep your back straight and your heart open, do it… make yourself comfortable. Sit, close your eyes and breathe slowly in-an-out. Try to pause between each breath. As you breathe see with your MIND’S eye, follow that breath, as if making a figure 8 inside your body, in-an-out…become one with the movement of your breath as it slowly goes in-and-out of your body in it’s figure 8 pattern.
It’s Called meditation and you just did it. Meditation does not need to be complicated. You do not need to twist yourself into a knot to reach clarity of mind. You just need to do it. Try a few minutes each day and as you get better, then you can try different sitting styles and maybe someday you’ll even want to tie yourself into that beautiful knot position. And if the word meditation scares you, then don’t call it that. Just sit in quiet and breathe…
