Partaking in an inner silence practice called Antar Mouna for the past month, I’ve been unlocking deep seeded thoughts and emotions in my subconscious mind. Because of this, I have felt a heaviness and tightness in my heart and throat while I partake in Antar Mouna. Being a witness to these thoughts and emotions, I have tried my best to not be affected but rather, allow these thoughts and emotions to be. In regards to the emotions, I become intimate as I breathe into them. It’s not an easy task, but a necessary one.
Listening to this meditation, I began to releasing blame and any other negative pent up emotions on my exhale.
Visualizing these emotions leave my body in the form of dark smoke, the heaviness and tightness I felt in my heart and throat began to loosen. Releasing these emotions that were ready to be let go of, I breathed more easily. While focusing on my breath, I am reminded of this present moment I find myself in. This beautiful moment where my life begins again, living free of any emotional baggage that can weigh me down. Living free of this baggage, I forgive. Living free of this baggage, I heal. Thank you, Nitima!
