It can be really difficult to focus on the meditation object, with the mind full of thoughts. By imagining them as leaves floating away downstream, it can make it a little easier to let the swirling thoughts go and improve focus and clarity.

The anxiety I was feeling earlier about the unknown for next month is gone now after listening to this meditation. Jiva’s voice has a calming effect on me. During this meditation I would see the words I was thinking on a leaf floating away down the stream.

Relieving
It was a relief letting the thoughts go as they came to mind. A meditation I see myself coming back to over and over again.

Staying present.
I learned that giving my mind a way to release my unwanted thoughts, provides an end point for that thoughts, they would pile up and I'd think about not thinking about them. Now, as I watch the leaf float away, I am open and calm as I sit present, I can repeat the process until my mind settles down.

Got away from it all
By the end of this session I really felt as though I’d left my usual worrying. It was pleasant!
