In this meditation, Christina guides us to think of a recent time in which we went through a difficult time and felt anxious and sadness, or perhaps even a time in which we felt regret for the way we behaved in a certain situation. Usually we are so caught up in the moment that we do not hear and therefore, do not listen to our inner voice.
I began to observe a very difficult time in which I felt devastated and an immense sense of sadness. While thinking back to this time, I became aware that my heart began to beat a little faster while my breathing began to be heavier. It certainly was not easy bringing this particular memory back to the forefront of my mind. However, I stuck with this memory as Christina introduced me to my inner voice, or empathetic witness. This soft inner voice, this gentle presence, began repeating that I was going to be okay, that with courage and compassion, I’ll be able to get past this difficult time. I began to notice my heartbeat to slow and my breathing to soften. In fact, my whole body began to soften, giving my mind and spirit comfort.
This meditation was an excellent reminder that our inner presence, our gentle empathetic witness is always with us. It is always within us to guide us through the darkness. It is always within us to give us wisdom and it is always within us to give us compassion and self-acceptance. We just need to remember to become aware!
Thank you, Christina! ☮️❤️🙏🏻
