I love the part about that "you are already blessed with this mysterious joy inside of you." Often, we forget that we already have what we are looking for. We just need to know where to look.
My mind wanders...
My mind often wanders during mindful meditation. I don't judge myself for it, but it happens often and sometimes frustrates me. I often think about anything and everything that can bring on anxiety.
I learned that many objects in this world can resemble peace and being at ease. In this meditation, where I imagined being a sponge slowly softening in the water, my body started to let go of stress and anxiety.
My joy is so deeply hidden within me. I saw it for a moment. It seems damaged by life. I feel that I need so much on the outside needs to go away in order to release my joy again.
My joy has been taken away by my spouse and his abuse. I have to find it again.
Yes it is inside regardless of the life you have led. Remember not to get stiffened, hardened by what you've been through.
Joy is there, connect to it or reconnect to it. Let yourself float with it. Have a happy joyful day!
Joy is an inner truth
I am not a drop in the ocean. I am the ocean in a drop, as the old Persian poet Rumi wrote. I am awakening...
Be kind to yourself even when the days harden you because joy always lies inside ⭐️
Be Kind To Yourself
Be kind to yourself and remember to find the joy within you. This meditation brought me from feeling a down place to taping into that joy within me and spreading it to change my mood and vibration.
Hardness and softness
Sometimes the weight of the world and past life experiences make me numb and put up this hardness inside. I loved the comparison of the softness of joy- allowing that pureness to seep deep within and alleviate some of that hardness. The visualization of this and allowing what joy is already inside to be felt was so powerful. Thank you for this meditation 🙏🏻
The meditation was very useful in creating body awareness and relaxation by using the metaphor of a sponge that is hardened by life. At any time we can imagine ourselves floating in water and awaken the joy that we ALWAYS carry within.
You have so much joy to give, make sure you save some for yourself too!
Although the meditation helped, I believe just the breathing alone calms me down. I struggle to imagine things in my brain, I don’t know whether it’s just because my brains a bit cloudy at the moment. But other than that I feel a lot calmer already and more at peace. ❤️
Awaken what is inside
I have an abundance of joy and wonder in my heart, and I must tenderly deepen my awareness of the beauty existing in my life.
I can open my heart and choose joy. I can breathe in happiness and less the grey clouds go. I can find peace thru breathe.
Sponge compared to life
We are all people with places to go and things to do, and we couldn't do it alone. In this meditation was used the comparison of a sponge with that of life and I was quite breathtaking how intricate life can.
Beautiful meditation that surprised me starting off as a sponge in the water. There is something so elemental about floating in the water. I love being In water and the buoyancy and freedom it allows to just float and be supported. It is true that we develop a hard shell to protect us from the outside world. It is also true that we need to soften this very shell to let more joy inside and to be able to share this joy with others.
My heart slows when I think not of a sponge but of a person - slowly, slowly, ever so slowly, I opened up and saw her face.
At the beginning in the water I imagined myself sinking. As I let go of stress and started to feel my body loosen up, I found myself floating back to the top of the water.
I was caused by love and now that I can not find the effect I will cause again
I learned that focusing on one repetitive, cyclical thing can help set one free of the clutter of every day.
Its hard to control your breathing when you feel anxious but meditations like this one really help
The joy is already here. Sometimes things are heard
Are hard and need to be softened. Finding happiness and joy. Spending the weekend with our boys. BJSR coming home.
Floating like a sponge rippling in the water. Freedom from whatever life sends
I can relax every part of my body by method of visualize station.🧡 Perfect meditation for any mood anytime of the day.
The joy is inside
I must remember how grateful I am for everything I have and everything I AM. That is where my joy comes from. Along with the people I have around me. I just have to awaken it!
Breathing and taking a moment to relax helps me to calm down and continue on with whatever i am doing rationally
I absolutely needed this one today. Obviously, my guides knew that too. This past week I got back into dating and it has reminded me everything I hate about online dating. I learned that I need to re-open my heart and stop keeping a distance. And that means me having to put myself out there, which is something I do not like doing.
Sadness overwhelming joy
It is very easy for me to get excited and feel joy in my daily life, but it is even easier for that same joy to be overwhelmed by a sudden sadness. And it takes me a while to get back to being happy when that happens. I am learning how to get back to being happy at a faster pace
I learned that it’s okay not be okay. I’ve been so stressed and depressed lately that I’m loosing myself. These three minutes made everything melt away and I felt so free
I learned that visualising the oxygen rejuvenating my body at a micro-level helped take my mind off my anxiety momentarily
Visualization helps me to put context around my abstract emotions.
End of Day 1
I felt very relaxed and very calm. There wasn’t a tense bone in my body.
i learned that you need to appreciate everything you have while it’s here
I learned that it is important to breathe deeply when you are not feeling your best
Joy and Gratitude
I learned that joy is always inside me; I just have to focus on it.
I learned that we get used to how hard life is, but we shouldn’t.
I thought this was too short. I am disappointed that these sessions are so short. I need better sleep and my body is tired from constant waking in the night and being on the go all day. I have not enough energy to get my chores done. Xxx
I learned that when I’m down I must try my hardest to bring myself back up again
I realized in my sad/stressed/anxiety filled moments my heart...and other body parts are hard/stiff/ridged. I love floating in physical water with sun shining on me. I was able to accept my hardness and soften it slowly gradually envisioning the warmth of floating sensations. Wonderful. 4518
Everything i need is already inside of me—Joy, happiness, and light. It’s there, i just have to focus and activate it and it’ll come out, absorb and be filled with joy.
through the terrible day I have been through, listening to this made me calm, stop crying, and feel relaxed. I think I can go to bed now. Thank you.
and to anyone who sees this, enjoy what you have while you still have it. have a great day❤️
It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the stress of the day and ready to tackle the next task. It’s nice to have a simple reminder to keep gratitude for the amazing life I already have.
Gratitude and Appreciation
looking back on the good things that your grateful and Appericate for brings a sense of not over me. keep thinking about the good memories and be grateful of them and Appericate them!
so powerful, such an important message, something I had forgotten
Letting yourself be happy
The part where you let your body decompress when life makes it compress resonates with me, because it feels really good when you finally let yourself be happy.
Happiness is a choice...
Find the joy inside, outside, with each breath and vision... joy abounds if you just allow it to be seen.
I learned that, it’s not my fault I’m sad and anxious. The world around me has pushed the joy I have deep inside and I need to let go of the past to access the joy again
The cracks in my heart let the love and light into my soul. As the love and light grow so am I. Eventually a million little lights emerge from points of my body. I realize joy is emerging. Little by little one moment at a time.
Good, very good or great.
They are all guesses if your not attached to your self and intoned with it According to rules that not a lot of people are even aware of their existence.
My happiness is already here... I just need.to be open! This was a beautiful meditation. Thank you for reminding me that happiness is inside and that I need to be open to it.
Great track to set me up for what I know will be a tricky day at work.
Remembering to Pause
I noticed that I’m rushing too much in my life, and I need to take a moment to pause and relax before I am able to do something productive
The mind is like the ocean waves which are turbulent at times and farm in others. Focusing on the breath can calm the waves.
Nice pick me up
This was a pleasant interlude to my morning. It’s amazing what a quick little meditation can do for the soul. I feel much calmer.
this meditation had some of the most beautiful visual cues... started my morning off right.
I found my mind wandering after the opening minute but found the image of the hard sponge opening quite powerful.
😌 happiness come from within, embrace your struggles and turn them into positivity!
Wake Up to Joy
Sometimes we harden ourselves when we go through challenging or difficult times. But, if we soften our body and take a peak around our surroundings while living in the present moment, we can open ourselves up to joy. Be joyful!😄 Have a great day! ❤️🙏🏻
I felt a release of tension within myself, as I focused on letting go of the tension that seemed to swarm around my body, I truly felt at peace, and calm within.
I have learned to release and let go. Protect my joy and my happiness. Don’t allow anyone or any problem shake my joy. Release all toxicity and any issue that are not in my control. Hold on to my joy. Remember that I am blessed!
Awaken to what is already there but has been made hard with sleep or neglect. Awaken your heart. I liked the encouraging messages of this meditation.
I learned that I am so accustomed to carrying tension in my body that I barely recognize it. This gentle and accepting meditation helped me move through my body and soften with loving kindness. I already have everything within me that I need. I can feel it if I quiet my mind, soften my body, and acknowledge that we are all connected. Thank you.
