Mindful Awareness for Calming Anxiety
At times we worry and obsess over thoughts that loop over and over again within our minds. It becomes difficult to sleep to feel calm and centered. A way to work with this is mindful breathing.

Bring acceptance and kindness to oneself with this meditation. Why is it so challenging to love and accept ourselves? This is a common issue that people present to me during healing sessions. Most of us are continually striving, trying to prove we are OK causing us to not fully enjoy our lives. We can be our own worst critics which cause great suffering. We rarely feel we are good enough just as we are. This does not mean we stop growing and healing but it does mean accepting who we are in this moment with Kindness.

Discover how to work with your feelings. It is natural to experience the full range of feelings. Studies show we have around 60,000 thoughts a day. Whether or not that is accurate we do know the mind never stops thinking. As you begin living with awareness you notice your self-talk. We become aware of how critical we are to ourselves and tend to not want to be with difficult emotions, but they are calling us to pay attention. We run into difficultly when we ignore these feelings, so in mindful awareness, we turn towards them.
Take a powerful pause. When you take a brief pause throughout your day it is like taking a mini-vacation. The act of pausing interrupts emotional thought loops. When we experience uncomfortable emotions such as anxiety or fear we typically attempt to force it to disappear. This in turn often increases our agitation. A more useful approach is to stop and settle into our bodies and become one with the breath. So join me here and let me know your experience.
Taking time to pause each day, even perhaps several times a day is like taking a mini-vacation to come home to yourself. It breaks the cycle of stress and anxiety and resets our ease of being. Please note that this meditation contains longer pauses so is an advanced meditation.
