Embodiment of Joy
When we cultivate joy, we can experience wonderful sensations in our body. In this meditation, Dea has us think of a joyous memory so we may experience the embodiment of joy.
Taking a few deep breaths, I arrived in my space. Becoming aware of any tension in my body, I began to allow the muscles that were ready to release to unravel their grip. Welcoming my body to relax, I began to think of a time when I felt joy.
In my mind’s eye, I was taken back to a summery day in Alaska where my fur kids, Kayleigh and Montee and I went to Olnes Pond. Walking along the water’s edge, I felt it’s warmth on my feet. Seeing that I was in a shallow area of the pond, I decided to walk into the water up to my waist. Because my fur kids were apprehensive of water, they waited for me back at the water’s edge. I began to call them to me, watching as they got a little more curious of the water with each passing moment. Out of nowhere, they began to swim towards me. Snapping pictures of them as they swam towards me, I remember the sheer joy I felt in that moment. Reliving this beautiful day in my mind’s eye, sensations of love and connection we shared filled my body. Thank you Dea, for this embodiment of joy experience! Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
