Sense of Calm before the storm
Prefect meditation before the hurricane makes its way towards my city. All I can do is prepare the best I can and that is it. Other than that I am ready.

I am safe. I have enough. I am loved.
Very powerful to bring to mind those that like and love you and feel that in your body. This left me with a sense of gratitude. Was feeling some general ugh earlier, but was able to be mindful of the feeling and begin to counteract the ugh by telling myself a different story. I choose to feel happy. I choose to be grateful for the beautiful weather. I choose to be relaxed and in the moment. ❤️✌🏻

Let go✌️❤️😂
Pain is temporary it may last a minute a day or even years. It's time to let go! It's time to love self- take a moment to review your life and be appreciative because you are special and you made it this far! ✌️❤️😂

The gift of safety
Wow- I can create my own safety, security and tell myself what I long for someone else to say- Everything will be okay. I've been told this- but this meditation gave me the action to practice it!

I am safe. I have enough. I am loved.
Before doing this meditation, I was filled with anxiety about everything I have to do this week. I noticed myself about to shut down. Thankfully, this meditation helped. I was able to calm down and I'm being patient with myself. I'm not superwoman; if I don't complete everything on my list, that's okay. Doesn't mean I failed. I am okay just as I am.

I am Safe. I have Enough. I am Loved.
When I am stressed, it is hard to think about the good things happening in my life realistically. Sometimes it is too hard to stop myself from thinking the worst about my life. I just have to remember: I am safe. I have enough. I am loved. These affirmations will help relieve my stress and help me to think about the real world and the good things in my life presently. 🦄🤩😍

Coming Back to Present

Thank you for the reminder!
I am safe. I have enough. I am loved. Being reminded of these basic facts puts everything else in perspective. I am lucky—no blessed—to be able to assert this in a world where so many do not have all 3 of these basics. With this appreciation, my concerns shrink to manageable size.

Practice brings improvements
Meditating consistently has taught me about my own needs in regards to practice, such as what I need and when. Anxious tears will form in my eyes sometimes and I’ll realize I hadn’t even noticed the edge I woke up with and carried into my day.

I am safe, loved and surrounded
I learned that it helps to take a second and reflect on the positives. Because I am safe, I am loved and I know I'm not alone. Life can be busy, it's easy to overlook those three basic facts.

I feel that it is hard for me to relax. I hope with more meditation I will be able to lose the stress and worries of the day and find peace. Toward the end of the meditation I felt calm and all my muscles went soft. In the beginning my heart was racing and it was difficult to let my muscles loosen. I feel a lot better now.

It seems like I’m constantly under stress. The slightest thing wrong angers me, or sends me into a rage! Tonight? I ruined dinner for the family. Burned damn near everything! Now I don’t feel like I can relax and go to sleep! Hoped Aura would help me out tonight...

Let go of anxiety
I am safe. I have enough. I am loved. When you recognize how fortunate you are it helps to lift the anxiety you are feeling. Instead you focus on the positive and realize that you are OK.

Let go.
I’m safe, I’m loved, I have enough. Words that not everyone can tell themselves, and this simple words/ sentences are needed from now and then. To be able to let go of anxiety.

Peace is always within us, but we must take time to uncover it. Thanks to meditation, I’m happier and at ease with the challenges I endure, stress-free and more strong-willed.

Letting go of emotions felt hard but necessary
Letting go of expectations lifted a weight temporarily. Focusing on breathing and my breath helped me have less perpetual thoughts.

Letting Go Of Anxiety
This session was very helpful and couldn’t have come at a better time... As stressful as things are in this very dangerous world, especially now as we teeter on brink of unbridled madness, it is very important to remember that beyond our conscience comprehension we all have access to an eternal peace of mind. Meditate Breath slowly Keep a proper of sense of humor let the anxiety flow through you and then let it go

Anxiety is something you can let go of at least in the moment ~ leading to some comfort and ease ~ do that I can take my next step or work for the day.

Living in the moment
I learned that living in the moment is what i need to focus on and not worry about the unknown of the future because the now is known. And the future will come in it’s own time. Enjoy today, this hour, this minute, all and all enjoy the now.

I am alright, right now.
I am safe. I am loved. I have enough. I am alright, right now. All wonderful reminders,especially after a day with the background humming of anxiety in my mind and being confronted with times where I could have quite easily lost control but was able to hold onto the reigns and remind myself that I am not my thoughts and that I am safe.

Panic attack
While I was doing the dishes earlier I started having a panic attack so I crawled up into a really tight space made it as tight as I could and when I finally calmed down I listened to this I think it really helped me. I stopped hyperventilating and crying. I was and am safe.

I just need to feel like I am in a safe place for once. Somewhere I am not being judged for what I do or how I express my emotions, which are hard for me to explain sometimes. Why do I have to justify myself? Why can't I just release? Why can't I let out a few or more tears and just be okay? I don't expect you to understand how I am living through my life or what my circumstances are and all the other hows and the whys of my life. Neither do I want to make you understand because you won't. Everybody lives their life differently. Not one person experiences one thing the same exact way. Something that might not seem like a big deal to you might mean a lot to me, and vice versa.

Stepping out of my comfort zone.
The last few days I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone and to be honest, for most of this time, I didn’t feel anxious or worried. Then today, I started to over analyze that I haven’t been feeling anxious and started looking for the anxiety. Looking for something to worry about as the hum of worry that’s usually at the back of my mind had been silenced. As soon as I started looking, I found the anxiety again. This meditation was good in helping to remind me that it is ok to let go.

First meditation
I felt calm and a sense of peace hearing that I am safe, I am loved, and I am enough. I have been a danger to myself lately and realized that I do not have to be. I have a rocky relationship with my mom, but know that my fiancé and his family and my friends and the people at the hospital and my students care for me and love me. I teared up a little, but feel good.

Letting go and simple realizations
We need to remind ourselves daily on our value and self worth and all the gifts we tend to over look especially during these recent months - putting into perspective how simple we can break it down to by just voicing you are loved , worthy etc because in this world today we can constantly get caught up in being torn down or tearing others down instead of building ourselves and others up

I feel an underlying anger and unrest I’m anmouted at someone for speaking to me in a demeaning way and I’m mad at myself I let them I can’t get it by perfect every time Sending myself grace
