A Sense of Freedom
Whatever our mind thinks, our body feels. Because of this, thoughts are extremely powerful. In this meditation, we learn to be an observer of our thoughts. When we observe from a witness standpoint, we become aware of what our thoughts are saying. Becoming aware, we have a sense of freedom from our thoughts. Therefore, we can begin to blossom into our true self.
Getting settled in an upright position, I dropped down into my body and focused on my breath. Inspiring, I became aware that I was breathing in. Expiring, I became aware that I was breathing out. Being in this witness state, I brought my awareness from breathing in the body to the thoughts in my mind. Bringing attention to these thoughts, I was able to decipher between them and let go of thoughts that weren’t of any benefit to me and the greater good. Because I want my body to feel good, I choose to entertain only uplifting thoughts. I am a master of my thoughts.
Thoughts are extremely powerful and will control us if they have it their way. To counteract that power, here is a simple mindfulness exercise to try: the next time you find yourself upset, frustrated, angry, sad, or even feeling depressed or anxious, ask yourself this one profound question: what was I just thinking about? By bringing awareness to what we were just thinking about, we gain clarity into patterns of thought. And this, my friends, is where transformation begins. Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
Allowing our mind to just think gives us a sense of freedom
