When we are in difficult times, we can tend to focus on all that is wrong. This is called negative bias and we all have it from time to time. In this wonderful meditation, Jiva has us turn our awareness from what is going wrong to what is going right in these difficult times.
Placing one hand on my heart and the other on my belly, I began to listen to Jiva’s voice. As she began asking me to find things that were going right at this time, I thought of how my body was breathing on its own. In these difficult times, some people can’t breath on their own. This gave me an appreciation for my breath. I thought of the house I live in, the food I have in the refrigerator, the water so I can wash my hands and shower, a bed I can sleep in and household goods, such as toilet paper. In these difficult times, some people do not have a house nor any food, water or household goods for that matter. This gave me an appreciation for having a home with supplies. I thought of the people and fur kids in my life, whom give me unconditional love. In these difficult times, some people are sadly, all alone. Doing this simple exercise of thinking of what is right during these difficult times gave me an immense amount of gratitude and a lightness in my heart.
There are always bright sides in every circumstance we find ourselves in. If we choose to focus on what is right instead of what is wrong, we will have a better mindset and a much more enriching life. Look to the bright side of things! Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
