Mind your posture
Being aware of my posture and remaining upright has an immediate effect on my self-confidence! It reminds me of the TED talk by Amy Cuddy that I strongly recommend - or her book 'Presence'

I have so much difficulty with posture , I don't want to have bad posture but I feel as if I am straining and forcing myself to have a straight back. This meditation can come in handy

Secret Success!
What an AMAZING revelation I had from the Dignity lesson! Such a simple task like correcting my posture daily can make the difference between a successful day or.......not. I realized how much easier it was to breathe deeply. It helped immediately ease pain and discomfort in joints and muscles of my body. The overall result was so quick and simple! As I continued through the day, all the while correcting as I caught myself slumped again, it was if a transformation was taking place. I felt happier and was more productive. Something as simple as good posture had changed a part of me for the best! When we look into a mirror we get a self image. Our self image is VERY important because how we see and feel about ourselves creates our self esteem. Self esteem is how we portray ourselves to others.If we’re confident we’ll find success! When we are successful we are happy and our self worth becomes PRICELESS to us! Dignity,Posture = Happiness,Success! EASY! Thank you!

Dignity shows how to have respect for my body and mind by feeling it. Just what I need to hear.

Never heard of this.
Dignity and self respect are important. Specially when you, like me, feel judged by the outside world, and family, all of the time.

With expansion, with full capacity, but also with softness, relaxation, lack of tension, full presence, as a cat...

Smiles 10-26-17
First, I learned it’s a journey to meditate with a males voice, but to to meditate on the floor or on the chair with with fur babies who actually meditate with is virtually impossible so I sit on the couch. Today, I laughed, because one of the fur babies didn’t want to meditate today and took off and continued to play and the other is with me as usual; calm, and loves it. Either way, we all do it once, twice maybe, three times a day depending on what the demands are. Let your body relax, where you want to sit, who you want to sit with and meditate. Enjoy your day. Smile Everyone!

I learned in this meditation that I am my own rock. I should be proud to be that. My presence is dignity in itself if I own it.

I learned that posture is tied to my sense of dignity. Realigning my posture can provide me with a sense of strength

A non-dignified life is a fruit of lack of good habits & bad posturing.
An upright posture builds up our dignity as human beings. Therefore, as we make more effort on our mindfulness & posturing awareness it helps us and makes us betterr individuals.

Sorry.
For whatever reason, I wasn’t a huge fan of this meditation. Probably me, my mindset, but I just didn’t feel this one.

Similar to needing to love myself first before I can love others, it makes sense that I have to respect myself first before I can invite others to respect me. I bet trust works the same way. Linking god posture to a aura of dignity is a great way to continually remember throughout my day to carry myself with dignity. Namaste

Sitting
I learned that sitting is not my favorite position for guided meditations. Took longer to really get into it but loved the thought/phrase “breathing along the spine” and then I became an inch taller and was just fine after that.

Having good posture increases your sense of dignity. This is because you are taking time to focus on your center and hold it up right.

Pausar
El detenerse un momento a percibir los detalles no sólo de la situación sino de la vida misma hace que podamos tener una perspecriva distinta de absolutamente todo. El darse cuenta de que el tener un cuerpo es un motivo para celebrar y que el poder encausarlo en la búsqueda de nuestro bienestar es un privilegio, hace que muchas cosas negativas pasen a un plano no tan relevante...

So often I allow my light to be a little dull, either because I don’t want people to actually see me or because I am afraid of what will happen if I fail with all those eyes on me. Even focusing on something simple like my posture can have tremendous impact. I want to learn to walk with my head held high, my shoulders back, my heart forward. Maybe my willingness to be more open will lead to bigger and better things.

I’m trying to keep my anger out of the way. I want to respond just like my body connects. Through one breath I can feel everything so I should be able to respond with a level head and stress free. I don’t want my anger to get the best of me anymore.

Postura e dignidade
Já vinha pensando sobre isso há alguns dias sobre a possibilidade de estar mais aberta a energia atreaves do plexo solar . A meditação trouxe a consciência para a espinha dorsal e para a dignidade que surge quando nos colocamos de maneira naturalmente alinhada.

Looks are important.
I love the saying as ‘you are more beautiful on the inside’ as much as anyone else but I think that it is so important to act like it. Our posture is a great way to show that we are beautiful on the outside and the inside!

I felt relaxed, soothed and energized.
I learned that I am happy and comfy while sitting erect with a straight spine and head lifted, focusing on my breathing. It’s a sense of strength and awareness of my body while being relaxed and serene. I smile while deep breathing and gently lifting my face and posture.

Dignified grace
We teach people how to treat us. I have always thought dignitaries who navigate the world with grace are inspiring. This meditation taught me the connection between posture and dignity. When we walk tall others notice. Dignity and respect emerges.

Dignity
I’ve struggled with good posture my entire life. I wanted to be as small and unobtrusive as possible. As a girl and young woman, it was incredibly difficult to deal with the attention K got from developing early and quickly. Thank goodness my “sweater puppies” weren’t heavy enough to permanently alter my spine, but walking around with my back straight and shoulders back felt like flaunting the goods. I’m also from the Bible Belt so all that with guilt heaped on me for distracting or “defrauding” the boys. Not I’m overweight and I don’t want people to stare at me. A lot of the time when I’m out I also need a wheelchair. Hunching my back and pulling my shoulder in is my way of saying: “pleasedon’tlookatme, pleasedon’tlookatme, pleasedon’tlookatme, pleasedon’tlookatme” But I deserve to sit, walk, exist with dignity. I have 3 decades of crazy adventures, selfless giving, and the love of some incredible people. I’m going to make an active effort to maintain better posture. I DESERVE DIGNITY!

coming back to aura
I found myself slipping back into old habits of how I let different things get on top of me the past few days. I haven't made the time for myself to take a few minutes each day to help work through that. Back doing that today and back trying to keep doing it each day for myself!

Stand Tall
So many times, we are lazy with our posture. We slouch or put our shoulders forward while we walk. This meditation teaches us about the importance of posture and how dignity is incorporated into it. Sometimes, posture has a lot to do with our self esteem. When we feel self conscious, we tend to walk with our head held low and shoulders forward. When we feel great, we walk with our head held high and shoulders back. It is important to remember how posture affects our body. This awareness can help us embody this dignity. Stand Tall! Have a great day! ❤️😊🙏🏻

Outlook
I've noticed that the way I stand really affects the way I look at life. Straightening my back and lifting my head helps me keep going, and lets me see even the worst situations in a clearer and more focused way. I feel confidence thtough me, simply by doing something as easy as changing the way in standing.

Positive Look on Life
Some people have a negative look on life whenever something inconvenient happens in their lives I was one of those people and I learned to deal with all that negativity. Now I have a positive look on life I constantly think about all the people and good things I have my life

Elegance in stillness
I remember sitting upright to play the violin when I was a kid, I was never terrible good at it, but I looked the part, so I got to sit in the front row. I felt elegant and proud like a big cat stalking through its territory. The smallest movement was made significant by the stability and stillness in my posture.
