Coupling w/ Purr...
This morning, as I settled in for my meditation session, one of my cats settled in on my lap. This particular meditation happens to be a 12-minute meditation. I wondered if RumTum would stay put (& still) that long.
I began my deep breathing. One stroke down his back... breathe in, 2, 3, 4. (Purr, Purr, Purr) Another breath out, 2, 3, 4... (Purr, Purr, Purr...) and on this went. For the entire 12-Minutes. It was great.
Yes, it did add a bit of distraction to the meditation. I suppose I traded a tiny bit of focus, for some Purr Therapy, which is always soothing.
Bottom line... I feel calm and ready for my day. Thanks, Sweet RumTum. 💕😊 🐈
