BEING LOVE
This is a wonderful meditation for quietening our mind when our mind is racing - when our thoughts are scattered - for refocusing our attention, and when we want to have clarity of mind, and calmness in mind and body. One of the simplest things we can do to create calmness is to focus our attention inward. As you bring your awareness inward onto your breath you begin to cultivate stillness, focus, attention onto a single thing. Our mind begins to slow, we begin to feel calmer; we realize we can gentle change how we feel by paying attention to how we breathe.

Practiced these 4 minutes in the sauna. Excellent way to wrap up my workout and prepare for the day.
I can be a calm mom. I can let go of my thoughts for 5 minutes.

Calmness in Mind and Body
Going inward by focusing on my breath helps me to calm my thoughts and ease my tense muscles and nerve pain. This practice makes me aware of the fact that my breath is usually quite shallow when I am anxious or feeling pain. Breathe work is great "medicine" for the mind, body and spirit!

My mind was wandering endlessly before doing this and keeping my focus on my breathing helped my mind focus on something other then what I was thinking about. I felt more calm and peaceful feeling myself breathing in and out.

That feeling after you emptied your lung of air as described in the audio
I have never conscientiously ever emptied out my lungs of air before, but after following the directions from the first audio of Mindfulness to concentrate on breathing (inhaling, exhaling completely) that was truly an excellent start for me and I definitely feel more calmness. The tone, female voice, background subtle music etc. definitely also played a role! Can’t wait to continue with this app! :)

Being aware of my internal feelings
Through this meditation, I learned to focus on my breathing and to become one with my body and mind. I enjoyed the feeling of feeling, being that I can be a bit oblivious to the true state of my emotions. This was a beautiful exercise.🙏

This was a hard meditation for me. I am feeling great today and though this was a great meditation and great one to focus on breathing it was very slow and brought me to a low pace to a level I didn’t want to be at. I will look back though. Thank you Aura!

Interrupted
It’s so hard to meditate if you get interrupted so many times because I don’t live alone and it’s so annoying. I think I could have had a more liberating experience. Though I did feel it very much

Clarity
I learned that I have the answers to my own questions. I just have to be still and listen to my thoughts one at a time. Keeping calm, focusing on my breathing and myself as a whole. Don’t rush anything, and everything will be okay.

Learning to look inward
By focusing inwardly to something as simple as your breath you can block out much of what is around you and even the random thoughts that clutter your mind. I found myself only thinking of my breathing and it was liberating

Day 1
The power of a soft and slow voice can help facilitate inward relaxation. I got distracted after 2 mins. Space Heater went on and overhead vent went on. Distracting thoughts of upcoming conversations raced through my mind and led to opening eyes prematurely

Just breath
I know I am being mindful of my breathing. Especially when I get to spend even more time than previously allowed during the meditation; —silently trying to follow my breath ...in...+ ...out...with out judgement. As I inhale and focus on the motions along with the very feeling gained from the time spent just being.. 🕉☮️💜

Unrest
The women's voice was particularly hard for me to relax. Her voice was corse and almost rough sounding. I was also interrupted multiple times which made the "anxiety-calming" recording to an "anxiety-heightening" recording. All in all this day of meditation was not very well.

It’s as simple as breathing
It’s amazing to me what power there is in breathing deeply, in thinking about the breathing. I’m mathematical and tend to count, trying to breathe in for 10 seconds, out for 10 seconds...slowly work my way up to 15 seconds. This is an exercise I’ve enjoyed most of my life and has helped me through many stressful moments, but being mindful of how each breath fills my lungs was entirely new. Refreshing.

I felt that I was calm and focused.
I learned that I can be still, relaxed and sharp thru focusing my breathing. It was clear and soothing. There was a gentle clarity and strength in my concentration - energizing. Yesterday, there was a bit of conflict, and I was able to be mindful and restrained. I was concerned, a bit alarmed but was still able to be aware and mindful to manage the situation.

Practicing...
I realized how much I have learned over the past 9 months of “practicing” meditation with my Aura Tribe: There is more than 1 way to get comfortable & it’s ok to lay down to meditate. Breathing deep has an instant calming effect on my body while it ignites my brain! It matters more what is going on inside you than around or outside of you. We can influence what’s going on outside of us more by focusing & influencing what’s going on inside us and that is mostly easiest done by influencing our breathing. I guess it mostly comes down to breathing more purposefully so our body can get the most oxygen in to energize our blood to our muscles & organs and help clean the toxins out to keep us healthy. In this way we are showing the most love for ourselves and thus others. Namaste

Day 1-long stressed day at work and home

What mindfulness IS
I learned that the moment you catch the wandering thoughts is being mindful. I always thought of it as failing to be mindful. This one was helpful to reshape the way I approach my mindfulness practice—perhaps it will help me actually get it off the ground, instead of starting and stopping so regularly.

I’ve been working very long hours and pushing everything else aside for a couple of weeks. If I’m awake, I’m working.

I noticed that focusing on each inhalation and exhalation allowed my whole body to relax
Focusing on breathing alone allowed my mind to quiet down. My thoughts seemed to fade away and I only paid attention to each inhalation and how my body moved and each exhalation and how I needed to keep it slow. It allowed my heart rate to slow down and my muscles so be less tense.

I took a personal day from work yesterday. Now I'm thinking about how behind I am and all the work I need to do. These meditatons will definitely come in handy this week. I have to get my work done, but I also need to make sure I'm taking care of myself as well.

Time is always passing, our minds constantly running. We tend to get wrapped up in our thoughts and being worried about our next move that we forget to just pause sometimes. This meditation taught me that it’s important to pause sometimes and just breathe. Don’t focus on what needs to be done next just clear your mind and relax. Take control over your mind don’t let it control you.

Focusing on Breathing
I learned that i need to focus on my breathing and slow my mind when it’s busy to help me sleep. Tonight I may not need it and I still need more practice. But more importantly I need to keep this up even if it’s not at the exact time. I need to always remember to do my mindful meditation.

J
Jesse
I felt a lot calmer and I noticed that my stress tics went away once I closed my eyes and breathed.
Once a day I need to just take some time for myself so that I can stay in a good mindset.

Happy
Happy that I got Aura to actually allow me to listen to a meditation track this morning! And happy to be getting out of the house today for lunch with my old business networking friend, and local Realtor, Sherry! She's been after me to join her at our local chapter of ToastMasters for a long time! Today's that day! Hoping to see some other friends today as well. I know they either already belong or may have likewise been invited to today's meeting! A bit anxious because I've not had the means to really ”re-launch” my business fully yet; I do not have business cards made, nor a web site created yet, but maybe, just maybe, this will also lead to some much-needed and much-missed work for me!

A detailed picture
During the session, I really got to focus on my breathing in a way I’ve never done before. Breathing is so natural, we don’t take the time to see and feel how it moves calmly.

I felt calm and more in tune with my body by focusing on my breath, visualising my lungs naturally filling and deflating.

Anxious and anger
That even when your day gets turned upside down all you need is to just stop focus on your deep breathing for just a bit. It really helps calm and center you so you can carry on with the rest of the day peacefully.

It’s good to remember that I can get further in the long run if I allow myself some good breaks along the way. Namaste

Meditation with marijuana
I became very chill, inhaling and exhaling serenely. I became calm, focused on her voice, feel calmer, feel blessed, my thoughts aren’t racing. Good Vibes.

I learned that I need to do deep breathe more often. I enjoyed this session and will continue to use the app to meditate.

Clear your mind
Slow your breathing; breathe in a little longer than usual, and slowly release it. This will have you feeling calmer, as, with each exhalation, it will quiet your thoughts. Take it easy, one breath at a time!

Sharmain
Funny thing is...
Her voice is so good and this practice of focusing on your breath to calm yourself is so on point that I fell asleep halfway through! 😅 Welp, guess it’s effective in making me relaxed. But thank you for sharing this. Namaste namaste 🙏

Not guided enough
This session was a little slow for me. Too few words and not enough imagery for me. While it was nice to breathe deeply I was needing more substance today to quiet my mind.

Still thinking
I’m not sure if I’m just having a very bad day or not but it didn’t guide me to clear my mind as I was expecting.

Experience with day 1
I noticed my mind still wandering... thinking about things Leo said to me or imagining him on this trip or the next time I’d talk to Him. I briefly thought about Oliver too.

Emotions and Clarity
Listening to the sounds and music, helped ease the headache Im having this is a good start to learning how to slow down and meditate which is desperately needed.

Sleepy
I learned that if you're already sleepy, this puts you straight to sleep. Also, I was only dozed off about 10 minutes and was already dreaming really weird things. But as soon as I woke up it was already fading away, amd within 3 minutes I forgot entirely what I dreamt. Just remember that it was weird.

Slowing Down
When our minds are feeling scattered, we can find calmness and clarity within our mind and body by focusing our attention on our breath. Getting settled into a comfortable position...closing my eyes...I can feel my body start to relax. Slowly, I take a deep inhale...pausing at the top. And, slowly exhale until all the air is fully released from my lungs. As I continue to do this, my mind is switching from “doing mode “ to “just being mode” which is giving me a break from the overwhelming feeling of all that is going to be on my plate next week. By the end of this session, I am feeling calm and grounded. I have a new sense of clarity that the only thing I have control over is the present moment. I will consciously take a few moments to slow down during the day to focus my attention on my breath to bring me back to a place of calm and clarity.

Breathing
It was nice to focus inward and focus on my breathe. I tried to take long, slow, smooth breathes and make them longer each time.
M
Marie
I noticed that my inhaling is much shorter than my exhaling.
I learned that I need to take in less quickly, less greedily and then the whole breath is much fuller and feels much better.

Just breathe
Breathing slowly can make u feel calmer take the time to close your eyes and relax and breathe
C
Claire
It’s the actual stopping what you are doing that is hard I find and once I do that? The gentleness and directness of the focusing talent of the guide is all important . A very helpful 3 minutes
I can do this, it’s not hard atall, it’s the stopping, or starting that is the hard part

Aimee
First day
I learned that my mind wanders so my goal is to focus only on the breathing. I feel calmer though from breathing deeply. It’s easy to do - making time to do it is the hardest part

I felt recentered
I went into this session with a tear stained face and found a position where my eyes could gently close. My worries and thoughts were running through my mind but as I focused on slowing my shaky breath, those thoughts slipped away. Now I feel light hearted, hopeful and calm. My emotions are valid and I am thankful to feel so much but I can release those feelings for now as they do not serve me. I am grateful for this opportunity to slow down and simply breathe.

The CALM before, during, & after the storm
Slept in after a long night of pain, tears, n sadness as my family said goodbye to my dearest grandpa via GoogleDuo video chat as he was taken from us by COVID-19. I woke up knowing I had a lot to do today but couldn’t get my mind to slow down enough in which to focus. The moment I signed in to Aura n began this mediation, a warmth came over my body, start with my head, down to my feet, n I was CALM. It may be 3:45 PM n rather late to say I’m officially starting my day but better late than never. Thank you for this meditation...I’m truly grateful. ♥️

Simple Signs
To think that judging others is a bad thing may actually be a myth. Don’t we have to judge others by their actions or in some sense in our decisions of who we share our time with.
