When we become still, we quickly find that our mind is filled with thoughts. This is especially true for those of us that do not practice meditation on a daily basis. Recognizing and accepting that this is what our mind is designed to do, we can find ways to release those thoughts out of our mind. In this meditation, Kristy introduces us to such a way, where we can then experience the tranquility of stillness.
Becoming settled in an upright position, I went inward to connect with my breath. Feeling how it to simply breathe in and out, my body became relaxed and still. Noticing some thoughts in my mind, I began to follow Kristy’s guidance of releasing by breathing into my mind by way of my mind’s eye, allowing the air I breathed to capture those thoughts. Then I watched, as they flowed down my body until they were released into the earth. On my exhale, I watched this air pick up any residual thoughts that were missed on my inhale and release my body by way of my mouth. Releasing these thoughts, I felt both my body and mind becoming still. Feeling the tranquility of stillness, I was able to experience the Now fully and completely. Thank you, Kristy! I am grateful for learning another technique I can use to release thoughts, especially during times when I am experiencing racing thoughts.
