Sleepy
Nearly fell asleep here! I think having a voice keeps me more calm than my own thoughts and helps me go to sleep

Me
I've had some trouble focusing lately. This meditation was helpful in reminding me of who I am...and in allowing myself to just be, without the need for judgement or analysis of every single thing that passes through my consciousness.

awareness begins deep in the thought process of what/who is in front of us. The awareness does not end without understanding our words together and how we interact and enjoy the dialogue. How can we work together as change agents?

Relax
I learned what was making me sad and upset. Next time I need to be more mindful, and try to stop thinking about the time.

7 minutes before I start work and ride on the shuttle to the park and ride
It’s good to feel my own empowerment essence that is deep within as I breathe in and out and quiet the thoughts and balance the body through this heart desire meditation it’s working. Keep living this 100th Monkey one can make a difference.

A Bright, Shiny Day 11-7-17
I learned that mindfulness is important. Taking what is inside you and focusing is just as important as what is on the outside. Also, don’t forget breathing techniques. I found myself thinking about the woes of family, friends and all my acquaintances here on Aura. There are so many of you I care about and I converse with. This too, helps me. By the way, my tooth is doing much better for those who know what has been going on. I wish you all a happy day. Thank you, Aura!

Thoughts
I can choose my own thoughts. I can choose kind thoughts about myself and others. My heart is full of love and I try to follow kindness and try to shut of the negative self talk. It’s there- it’s always there. I have a choice. I have always had the choice... very interesting discovery- but am I able to do it. As a counselor I speak freely of these things but when it comes to myself- somehow I am excluded from being kind to. I need to be kinder to myself and love myself- yeah- nice meditation thank you.

Permission is powerful
When I give my mind permission to wander, it slows down and wanders less.

Refocus
Take into account every thought—give your mind the space it needs to wander, grow, and to branch out. Let your mind flourish and bear fruit, then pick. Pick out what thoughts are your desires, your fears; and with these thoughts you can adjust your course, and refocus.

Sadness
You can't make sadness disappear but you can start to learn how to control it

Heartfelt Desire
I have a part of me that’s within me, sharing space in my body, that I need to get to know better, experience more fully, and allow to be a part of my everyday life. Namaste

I learned that...
if you take some time for yourself to breathe, relax, and stop thinking.. you become more at ease and calm.

Awareness sets me free
Where does the awareness starts and where does it end? I allow myself to be what I am.

My Desires
I learned in this meditation moment, that things as they are, it’s ok to not know how to fix it. To let things be but it will work out. The scripture that comes to mind is.. Is making our intentions known to God and with prayer and supplication they will be added to us. It’s ok to not know, but it will be fine and God will give us all that we need AND desire if we just give it to Him!!!

Frustrated
Envy is an ugly thing and turns people into things they aren’t. This session helped calm me a bit.

Expectations
I was expecting a 3 minute practice as that’s the only option I’ve ever had for my one freebie per day. This turned out to be 7 minutes & as I was short on time my focus was on the extra time this would take instead of being mindful. On top of that I couldn’t connect with this exercise. Oh well, I’m still grateful to be doing mindfulness practice daily. I just wanna work on not letting expectations taking away from the present moment.

Spacious awareness
In this spacious awareness, I am aware of both dogs snoring as loud as any creatures ever have. They must be quite soothed in their deep breathing.

The language that we use can help us to create a mindset of being present. I much to learn in this regard.

Listen
Turned off the air purifier, the humidifier, the radio and television are both off. I can hear the wall clock counting off seconds, the refrigerator humming. Outside there is silence. My breathing slows, keeping time with the clock. Peaceful.

Sleepy
While doing this meditation I was very tired so I wasn’t able to pay much attention to what they were saying. But what I got from it was that ; You can let things go ( the negative / bad things) but if your not able to that’s okay .

The heart
I learned to look inward and saw myself thinking about what I really want for the present and future. I need to realign my goals to accomplish them.

Meditating on the bus is hard LOL. But still relaxing somehow.

Sitting in it
How beautiful it is to simply sit and be. No thinking, no analyzing, no troubleshooting. What freedom and rest there is in simply sitting, in noticing it all, good and not so good, and allowing it to be as it is.

Frustrated and confused
The wording gave me problems. I could feel myself scowling as I tried to figure out what she was wanting me to do. This was not relaxing for me at all.

Letting go is hard
For so long ive held grudges and negativity. It makes it difficult to just, relax. My first experience was painful. It was nice, but my body wanted to go in all sorts of directions. Anxiety built up because I cant let go and just be. Ill try.

First meditation
I felt a space inside I could not fill and I didn't think I had to do that, where and who I was was just enough.

I can be happy no where I am , that experiences come and go and we can let them in and out of us
