This practitioner connected with me so beautifully—her voice, the lightness and reassurance of her tone. Beautiful meditation. Very grateful 🙏🏾
This helped me a lot this morning. I am providing end of life care for my grandma and have been worried about how she will go, pain, etc. I was able to release a build up of tension, rumination, and reactivity preparation. Thank you for this gift. 💚
I feel I’m becoming more able to focus on the listening task This in turn is relaxing
Awareness of Thoughts
My mantra: Let it go…Let it flow
When noticing my mind is ruminating along with the emotions it triggers throughout my body, I will acknowledge these thoughts and release them by refocusing my attention on my breath. I can also use my breath to soften any areas of tension throughout my body. This will help during challenging times to keep me calm and grounded. I will be able to respond rather than react to any challenging situation. By the end of this session, I felt calm and grounded. It is also important to acknowledge feelings of well being and let those sink in.
Very nice meditation. Try as I may, I continue to have a persistent thought that keeps appearing. This thought is causing me to feel anxiety. I liked the suggestion that if this happens, you can put that thought up on a "shelf" and leave it there. Sometimes it just won't flow down the stream with the others. I'm glad I did this right before I go to sleep. Good night.
