We can help ourselves to stay steady and strong by bringing to mind a mountain, and then imagining ourselves as that mountain - stable and unchanging with all the swirl of events around us.

I had a hard time with this one. The voice was not relaxing unfortunately. Just felt big and block like.

Standing strong
I learned that you can get through the rough times because in the end things get better no matter what the situation, you just have to be willing to help yourself through the bad times.

It’s hard to be strong when bad things happen especially the small things cause even if they seem little in my head they feel so big like they keep bringing me down.I need to learn to stay strong through the rough times

I don’t exactly understand this one but I did enjoy it. I could surprisingly enough visualize the mountains and I normally struggle visualizing things.

Unsettled
I could semi visualize the mountain. I wish that the mountain meditation was longer so I could focus and really settle in. I still feel anxious.

Reminded me of why I live the mountains
Mountains are the perfect metaphor for a peaceful steady presence.

Strength from the mountains
Since I’ve lived much of my life around mountains this meditation is particularly meaningful to me. It not only makes me feel stronger but it also makes for good feelings as memories of mountains, past and present, some to mr

Visualizing myself as a mountain—steady, rooted—is a helpful visualization for me. I often react quickly to things going on around me (which is something that is often necessary in my job but not necessarily good for my interpersonal interactions). Visualizing myself as a mountain can help me to be more measured, reflective and slower to respond.

It kind of ironic that this meditation was about mountains. I had to pass over a snowy mountain and see a few accidents and spin outs and realized that just maybe it was time to stop. I was trying to get to a wedding. These cars were passing me and then spinning out at the top. I had to pass them. I didn’t make it all the way the first night but I was safe. I am that mountain. I can conquer it. I did it nice and slow and with a lot of prayer. Thank you, Aura! Have a nice day Everyone!😀

Mountain
I wish I could be strong and steadfast through winter like the mountain. Each year winter seems to get longer and colder. Spring cannot come fast enough for me.

I have dreamed on the mountain...
Life is fluid and fleeting, obut there is also a solid core element to it all. Namaste

Deeply rooted
1) I THOUGHT I had listened to this lesson previously but didn't see any reflection left. 2) I easily imagined myself as the mountain where I used to live so happily...before life rolled even more happily on; with love, marriage, children, joy, tragedy, everything! Mountains keep their feet firmly planted within the Earth, stable, strong, proud. Withstanding everything man and nature throw at them. BE THAT MOUNTAIN!

Such Sense
Upon reading what my friend wrote after listening to this lesson, I decided to give it a try myself. Strong and steady. Staying that way. Slowing responses, giving more thought to situations, relying on our own ability to keep ourselves strong and steady throughout our lives; what a great reminder when we seem to slip a bit off track regardless of having the best of intentions. I am grateful I listened to this gentle reminder of such an important lesson today.

Centering
I find this meditation to be very centering. Helps to calm anxious thoughts as they pass by.

I noticed my power
Why can’t I be a mountain? I am a mountain and I can do anything if I realize just how powerful I am as a human being. Great way to end the day and reflect!

When you're able to forgive, you will be happier
I needed this, I need to learn to forgive others as well as myself. I should listen to this every morning to remind myself to be kind and forgiving with myself first and with others.

Steadiness
With all of the negativity that is around, it is nice to visualize yourself as a mountain, standing tall and steady. We all have the ability to not allow negativity to consume ourselves. But, as with a mountain remaining steady withstanding different climate patterns, we too can remain steady regardless of changing circumstances in our lives. I was reminded of my time living in Alaska visualizing myself as Denali, The Great One. For those that do not know, Denali is the tallest mountain in North America at 20,320 feet! In fact, often times Denali makes its own weather. From now on, I will visualize myself as Denali, standing tall and steady! Thank you Jiva! Namaste! 🙏🏻

Made me feel that I can be strong and rooted and stable despite this Mags changing around me. I am still me and still will be me and have to just deal with changes.
