Compassionate breath
Be kind to myself. I need to remember mindfulness is a process that takes time. I need to remember to be compassionate with myself.

Bad devision
I opted to try this session without my ear buds tonight...BIG MISTAKE! My two teenage children are out in the kitchen being loud and arguing with my wife while they color Easter Eggs...impossible to tune their noise out in favor of this lesson! I hope all of my Aura tribe has a blessed and renewing Easter holiday tomorrow! We’ll see my wife’s large local extended family for our traditional egg hunt and breakfast buffet...but no matter what you do, or what your family’s traditions, remember to rejoice! For HE is risen! He is risen indeed!

present breathing
Being mindful of breathing is being present. Each breath happens only in the present. 4218

Compassionate breath
I had a few fleeting thoughts enter my mind while i was meditating and was able to release them and bring my focus back to my breath in the then present moment.

Meditation 5
This week was really good with the help of the meditation, but the session of today was kind of distracting and all that i could listen was the voice telling me that my inner breath was a little shorter than my outer breath

Being present
This meditation clearly addresses my most pressing problem....obsessing over past or future and not being in the present! The present...what a gift...don’t miss it.

My eyebrows kept going back to the same perplexing look. My whole body became fuzzy and I felt no emotion.

Compassionate breath
Today I found this meditation irritating. I wanted more quiet and she talked the entire time. Not her fault since she cannot please everyone.

Not my type
The voice was really irritating, couldn’t concentrate or actually feel calm.

Compassionate Breath
I learned to be aware of the breath because breathing only happens in the present. I appreciate this outlook.

Struggling
Struggling to be fully present, to journal, and to meet myself where I am. Struggling to be productive, to enjoy my Saturday and I find myself being pulled to my bed. Reminding myself to take things a breath at a time. This too shall pass.

Relaxing breaths
I felt my stomach loosen as I went through the breaths. I have a tendency to tighten my stomach as I wake up when I begin thinking about what I have to do for the day.

Compassionate Breath
I learned that I can notice, feel, contemplate while taking time to relate with the rest of my body.

Compassion
My favorite part of that mediation was about compassion. And not only having compassion but for yourself most importantly. I have recently started considering myself and empath and doing so I feel for others so deeply. The concept of having compassion for myself truly is so profound.

Such joy and calm!
Washing away the worries of the day! I feel at peace. Just what I needed to unwind.

Breathing in the present moment
I noticed that it was nice to take a break and breathe, even if it is on the side of a busy road. I tried not to be distracted by the passing traffic and truly tried to be present in this moment. I felt myself tuning off at times though but not necessarily getting caught up in negative thoughts, so I don’t know whether that means I was distracted or whether I was so relaxed that my mind was finally blank.

Just breathe
Thankful that I am breathing, that I can take the time to be present and focus on my breathing.

couldn't sleep
I couldn't sleep last night so this affected me focusing on breathing. I am not doing so well because I am very tired. I tried to focus on breathing.

Presence
Though I begin a bit awkward, (thinking of things I need to do) with the meditation I realize that I’m fully able, aware and strong enough to overcome. The best gift I have is the present (everything/everyone around me). Mindfulness is helping me achieve my goals.

Day 12
I feel that I am never in the present moment but when I am I am the happiest. I’m a workaholic, a overachiever, an overthinker, and a worrier. This meditation is a lovely reminder to stay present no matter where, or what you’re going through.

Ok
Sometimes I know that I am ok and breathing but I still feel upset and angry, I start feeling numb when this happens

Difficult to be present
My thoughts kept drifting to different experiences or thoughts and it was hard to clear my mind. Focusing on breathing helped.

Really easy to get distracted
Although I appreciated and liked the structure of the meditation, the second my mind drifted even slightly to something else I was gone. It was so easy to get distracted that I only felt and held slight parts of the meditation.

Simple act
You can be so easily in the moment, but we all are so into our daily routine and thinking about what happens next that we completely forget the present moment, even tho it is the only moment we have and will ever have. You can just sit and breathe and it will give you such a relieving feeling through such a simple act.

I noticed that my mind was racing to keep up with what he was saying.

In the Present
The thought I took away and will write down is when you are in the present, you let go of the past.

Attention
We get so caught up with things from the past, that we forget to live in the present. Close your eyes & feel your surroundings; try to let go of memories that hold you back from living the most in your life.

Present moment
I need to be more in touch with the present moment and not dwell on the past or what the future holds. Taking a moment to notice my current surroundings and focusing on my breath.
