So easy to forget my strength
I am always so focused outward that I sometimes begin to lose my moorings, lose myself. I have been physically and emotionally sick for the last week so the simple act of standing strong felt like a revelation. I do have the strength to live this life and live it well.

So easy to forget all that I possess within me and focus on that and not my weaknesses.

Posture
Posture is something we often forget and take for granted. But, the reality of how powerful is feeling ourselves well supported, it's amazing! Being aware of our body and of our spirit; the two main things that are present (and in the presence) of this right moment, now!

Amaury
Worthiness
I learned how easy it is to forget to take time to appreciate myself and give in to trappings that my self-worth should be based on some type of external validation. Before this meditation I was feeling guilty for asking for a certain salary amount in a job application I recently filled. Something happened during the meditation, that guilt faded away and replaced with confidence.

I learned that even if I feel that nobody is supporting me, the Earth has been supporting me my entire life, and will continue to do so. I also learned that I am worthy of being here, of taking up space.

Existence
I learned that although I may not know my purpose, but my existence is valid. I touch things, I effect them, and they effect me. We cannot feel bad if our existence is valid. Our true nature allows for the validity of existence. Without the push and pull of the world around us we cannot have a purpose. Rolling with the tides is necessary, but we will prevail.

I felt very grounded to Mother Earth. I truly felt myself just let go and allowed myself to let the earth fully support me. This meditation made me think about my true purpose on earth and I wondered what my full potential may be.....

Purpose
There’s a reason I am here. I have something to offer the world, and I am grounded in my physical presence of that. This exercise brought out that mind set in me, and it was a great feeling to have. Feeling like I have a purpose for being here.

Earth and inner connection with self
I felt so grounded and connected to the earth and my inner self. It took me a while to get settled and my mind kept drifting to other thoughts and coming back to focus. I took some deep breaths towards the end and that brought me back. I think I will repeat this session now that most of the thoughts are at ease.

Body Strength & Earth Connection
I choose the longer version for my second session and I enjoyed it so much. I feel the strength of my body and the connection between my body and the earth. I feel worthy of the space that I take up on this earth. I never thought of myself in this perspective before, I will try to remember this when I’m not feeling so up to par.

The Way
To focus on the fact that I have been granted life for a time, from heaven and the earth, is to free yourself from the ego-mind in a way that I have not previously tried.

I could see my myself standing on a cliff or mountain it was a high rock formation. I felt grounded to the formation with a panoramic view of other rock formations. With my hands stretched out I felt that I do matter to this world. Very peaceful.

Not everyone feels good after.
This meditation made me feel even worse than I already was. Reading all the positive responses didn't help much either.

Sorting my thoughts
I learned how I need to ground myself and allow myself to feel worthy to exist. To begin to sort my thoughts, which have been erratic and unorganized, I need to ground myself. I need to feel in the moment and steady.

I found this meditation a lot harder to focus on and get lost in. My mind drifted a lot to other things. However it was nice to envision my place in the world and how important and special it was, and good to set an intention for the day and give myself a feeling of purpose.

Day 91/365
Today I learned that I am worthy enough to take up space in this world. That there is this beautiful connection between the way that the earth and ground supports me, and the way that I support myself. This meditation reminded me of my sole purpose and that I am ultimately the person that is in control of the way that I view myself.

I like the idea of this meditation, but self belief is not what I'm best at, so my mind really wandered!

The law of gravity
Not sure how the passive reality of the pull of gravity is supposed to lift my mood. Better meditation is for me to focus on the God who placed me in this planet and made it so that I don’t fly off this orb. He has a better plan for me than that.

Taking up space

Sacred Space
Feeling grounded, having a firm foundation with our interconnection with Earth is so vital for our overall well-being. In this meditation, we feel the weight of our body on the Earth and in doing so, we have the opportunity to feel our strength in the sacred space we take up. Getting settled, I felt the weight of my body on this chair. Underneath this cushion, the wheels of this chair are firmly planted on the wood and the wood is firmly planted on the ground below. As my weight is being pulled to the Earth, the Earth pushes back. This constant push-pull creates a sacred space for me to feel my worthiness. Wherever I go, there I am within a sacred space, always being supported by the Earth, where I can feel my strength. Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️

Taking up space
In the past I have felt the overwhelming sensation to take up as little space as possible. I used to believe, the less space I take up the better. I didn’t want to be seen and if I could blend and melt into the background I would. I have slowly felt more comfortable taking up space and this meditation is a good reminder that you are important, so take up that well deserved space. Allow yourself to feel the earth and air around you and accept the fact that all the space you take up is not a burden but a beautiful design. The space you take up is you and you are worth it.
