I really enjoyed this meditation. I felt very relaxed and loved the visual of sitting by a stream and letting go of my thoughts by placing them on leaves and letting them go down the stream. I will have to try this one again as I was interrupted by a phone call and lost my train of thought. This is definitely a technique I will use next time I’m caught up in my thoughts. Yesterday, I had a powerful moment of finding my heart racing and breathing becoming shallow as I approached a police breath test. For those following, you know I don’t drink but this encounter causes me great anxiety. As I waited in the line of cars I took control back over my breath and was able to bring myself back to the present moment. I was waved through so once again feel like I cheated the moment but I now know I’m better able to control my anxiety in this or any situation.
