Great grounding experience
In my depression, sometimes it's hard to see the forest for the trees and realize it won't last forever. This wonderful meditation helped me to see that. Thank you, Aura.

taking a step back while looking forward.
i haven't been able to understand why i am feeling off lately, until this morning. i haven't meditated in a while. so i did a yoga flow and then sat down and meditated. and that has helped me step back and see what the problem is, but while looking forward to the future to see how this stress will actually turn out. sometimes i get so zoomed in on one aspect of my life, that if i zoom out it can calm me down because i realized there is more happening around you then the small thing i was focusing on

Stress is temporary
The stress I feel today will not likely affect my future self. It if fleeting and I can get through it

Everything is temporary
This meditation reminded me that whatever stress or sadness I have now, this is just temporary. Sometimes we get so overwhelmed about our current situation that we forget that this too shall pass.

Time keeps on slipping
Into the future. The odd thing is I usually look at my wreckage of the past resenting my present. It joke is I'm not looking at what I am doing right now to make my future self improve. I am thrilled about what's ahead of me and the adversity I am facing. It is my choice to suffer and now I am making my choice to truly break my bonds of the past to make my future and my children's future spectacular. Maybe some day, I can give he gift of fire that has motivated me to improve upon myself to another. If you have read this. Thank you and bless you.

Only for a moment
Stress is only for a moment in time and won't last as long as I don't let it. The things that I stress about now won't be here tomorrow, a year from now or five years from now. So that means I need to let it go and just do me, live in the here and now...not worry because everything WILL be okay. It will be great. I'm grateful for this moment and everything and everyone in my life.

Temporary stress
I began recently falling so far behind on some online course work, and after completing this meditation I now know that my stress is only temporary and that later on, once I am finished all of my course work, all of that stress will be gone. Thank you for this!

Stronger
Couldn’t sleep last night and this morning I still have a lot on my mind. There is a lot of distance in my family. Both in miles and relationships. I feel anxiety more around the holidays. I will try to make the best of the situation, I will try to be stronger and I will try not to dwell on this situation and just try to get through the holidays the best I can. 🙏🌅

I’ll laugh about it in a few years
I was wonderful to notice that what is stressing me right now will be completely unimportant in a few years and i will probably laugh about it...

Great reminder
This is one of the techniques that I often use myself and use to help distressed friends or family members. I know that the thing that caused me stress will not be important in a month, less so in a year, and won't be remembered in five years. It was a good reminder and helpful to have someone talk me through a familiar path. Thanks

Momentary
The stress of the moment is just that, momentary, and that it will become unimportant.

Pain is temporary

Fast forward
Things that you might be feeling at this moment will become unimportant in the future, so it’s better not to stress yourself out about it, and that there are some things in life that you might not realize that you are anxious about, until you bring it to your attention.

Don’t sweat the small stuff
This meditation reminded me that what I am stressing over now may be what I will be missing tomorrow. Live in the moment and get perspective.

Situations can be perceived differently
Situations can be perceived differently when you think about them from different points in the future, it’s easy to relive that sometimes things that happen to us are not that important

I realized that in a couple of years I will be in more advanced drawing & painting courses & the stress of being a beginner artist will be won’t matter anymore.

Really needed this, gunna go ahead and listen again. 👍
The feeling I have now won’t last forever. I’m having a really hard tim in my marriage, there is a lot of toxicity and my spouse is dealing with issues of their own. Unfortunately the wedge that’s been driven between us I feel like is useless to even try most days. But here I sit continuing to work for what I want. Hoping we both are taking the right steps to fix things.

Future situation identical.
Fast-forwarding to a future time I'm certain that I’ll be in the same conundrum as I am today. I find myself in this place year-after-year! It's certainly worse now, having had my stroke and being unemployed. I've kind of learned to hate Christmastime! There's NEVER enough money or resources in my mind to do all I wish to do for my family during the holidays! I've still several projects I want to accomplish for the kids. But I feel like we’re already overextended for the holidays! It's this thing I learned here at Aura that I have: scarcity attitude. There’s NEVER enough money. EVER!
