This breathing space meditation has three parts to it: Arriving, Gathering and Expanding. It can be used as a pause in a busy day or as an emergency meditation to help you feel more calm and clarity in a stressful situation. Please note: If you are struggling with your mental health it's really important to seek professional help. These meditations are not a substitute for that but can be used along side therapy to help to support you. For more on Carla-Jo and her work please see www.carlajo-mindfulness.com

Attached to the breath
I was able to realize that it’s not my neighbors loud music that disturbs me, rather it is my perception of my neighbor’s intent that disturbs me. Unfortunately I cannot do anything about my neighbors behaviors, but I can decide how I think and feel about them. I can also take those thoughts, feelings and awareness and attach it to my breath and release it when I release my breath.

Discomfort
Sitting today was uncomfortable; to the point where it was hard to focus. My cushion felt too hard. As I got to the end of my meditation I started to be able to focus on my breath despite the pain. The discomfort I felt from sitting ended up being a positive as it helped me realize that my practice is not always going to result in blissful relaxation. Sometimes reconnecting with where you are is accepting the pain and discomfort, not just trying to outrun it, which always leads to more pain.

3 stages of breathing
Good to center and focus. I liked the image of encapsulating your experience into your breath. Namaste

Body Breath
I find that breathing completely into my whole body opens awareness to the universe, we become one and the same. Actually we always are, but the realisation comes through the practise of mindful meditation x

I learned that I have to know myself and be aware of my mind and body. Also, I learned to let go of emotions

Being gentle and non judgmental
This meditation recalls me to be gentle and non judgmental about myself when I’m feeling anxious. And this is really important for me. Thank you! 😊
