Different meditation challenges can call upon different strategies of, what my teacher calls, "working and playing" with awareness. One of the strategies I use a lot is to have one or more "home bases," in the mind and body, which can help me gather awareness back in when it's feeling foggy or diffuse. My "Home Base Meditation" offers time and instructions for trying this yourself. Try to relax and have fun with it the best you can. Meditation isn't supposed to be a chore, and if it becomes one, it's less likely you'll stick with it.

Grounding.
I learned that this a necessary part of my self-care. It assists me in keeping an even keel.

Home Base
It felt good to think of my heart center as Home Base...my safe place...the place in me that contains, shelters and radiates my inner light throughout my body and outwardly to others.

Body awareness and breath
I learned that taking this moment allowed me to send positive energy throughout my body from my heart center. I liked the sensations of awareness.

Home Base
I don’t offer myself kindness enough. And every time I’m told to ‘soften’ in meditation, I realize how tense I am. I love the practice of meditation but still have to learn how to take it with me throughout my day.

Awareness
Taking something step by step from the same place you can bring yourself to the whole.

Flowing Body
I learned to take my thoughts and emotions then let them flow throughout my body until they get to my feet, then to just try and work on them.

Feeling the heart region
I Learned that I am no good at feeling the heart region. In fact it showed me how self-conscious and extremely aware of how badly I was doing it every time it told me to go back to the heart region.
