Ambivalence no more
In my life, ambivalence happens when the mind, body, and spirit are not in alignment. Today my safe place, church stirred up feelings of ambivalence. The message brought comfort, peace, and acceptance. Seeing moms with dads and their kids brought significant pain. I miss my daughter significantly. I realized how much I want to be a family during spiritual moments. So please pray that I am able to reunite with my daughter soon. Please pray that I am able to let go of ambivalence.

I am grateful for my breath and breathing being there for me always and inhaling warmth the positive and the light, breathing out the negative a sigh a release like a weight lifting or washing the worries away

Focus
Hard to ignore the sounds of the morning and my mind going to planning stage. Good to bring the attention back to breath.

Breathing is important
I know that’s obvious but I always forget to deep breathe and really focus on my breathing! It’s nice to have these 3 minutes each morning to actually breathe.

Every breath is life.
It's was pleasant to take a moment and focus on how each breath flows through our entire body. With every inhale it carries life, and with every exhale it removes toxins. It's very centering to reconnect with the body and appreciate what it means to just breathe.

Breath Location Concentration
I learned that I should not try to meditate when I have a headache. The pain from the headache does not allow me to fully concentrate. It interferes with what I am trying to do.

I don't think I'm breathing correctly for meditation. I did notice my breathing is heavy at the end of my nose where my throat begins.

Purpose
I realized that sometimes we neglect the simple things, such as breathing. But if we would just notice the beauty in it, you'll see the purpose for everything.

Present moment
When you actually bring yourself to the present moment, it’s mad to know how much our brain and thoughts can actually run away with us! Sometimes maybe even spiral out of control but to stop and have 3 minutes to concentrate of the present moment and your breathe slows everything done and stops all the thoughts 💭🙌🏼

Self-love
Sometimes we forget to love ourselves, and sometimes we even despise our own physical and emotional being. Meditation brings us back to a serene, spiritual place in our own hearts and fortifies our minds, enabling us to let go and love.

Laying down
For me it’s more relaxing than trying to sit still. I can focus on other things besides sitting strait.

Mindfulness day 1)
Throughout this processes so far I was able to notice where I feel my breath the most and I noticed I was able to focus more than I thought... while I was using this app I realized that yoga is definitely a good thing for me to do. I’ve tried it a few times and it always makes me feel better
