Enjoying life
I have trouble enjoying life- it’s something to be endured, something i am resigned to. Cognitively i know that it could be sooo much worse, but i cant seem to get to a happy or grateful place. Well at least not for more than a second or two.

Sink 🌏
This method taught me how to transfer all the stress I’m feeling to the Earth’s hands by letting them sink down, not me. There’s this feeling of trust and relief once this is done, and for me, I felt like a newborn baby. 👶

Releasing Your Stress to The Earth
I need practice, practice, practice....for so long I have held stress tucked away behind a door in my heart and now I can’t seem to let it out!! How do you relieve stress that was caused by someone close to you for the past 10 years? Keeping it inside was the only choice I had. Hope this will help!

Release
Releasing my stress to the earth is definitely something I never even thought about. This meditation was so helpful with that as I have been stressing for weeks now. I feel a lot lighter and I learned that I can release whatever I don’t want to feel if I just focus.

Releasing stress
We don’t have to carry all of our emotions around at once by doing this meditation I feel a weight off my shoulders and things I have been worrying about that aren’t in my control are left within the earth to be recycled into something else. Lovely meditation ❤️

Feelings sinking
Letting your feelings sink into the earth is helpful for panic attacks. It teaches me that they can stay sunk there, and if I get a feeling of panic, i can remember where I need to put it (back into the earth).

M

I can release my stress into the earth then walk away and leave it behind me.
I imagined my stress to be like a red ball of flame. 🔥 Because that’s what it feels like when it burns and pushes on my right shoulder in particular. And also when it turns into butterflies. It’s like the flame fluttering in my chest and then the flame growing bigger and turning into palpitations in my heart. But I can bury it deep in the earth and walk away from it. Thank you

It says to have a slower but not longer exhalation. I don’t understand the difference. What is it?

Stress
During this meditation, I️ learned that stress can be a tangible object we can see in our minds eye, using that image to put that stress in a place, such as the earth and allow the earth to transform our stress into something beautiful. My stress was the color yellow, and it was like a sludge of oil paint or acrylic paint on a palate. The paint dropped as an entire blob to the earth and spread out over the green grass beneath a large tree. As I️ looked up into the tree to see the sun shining through the leaves, I️ noticed yellow butterflies had been transformed from the blob of yellow stress. Beautiful...

Honesty
I learned that by being honest to yourself and to others can release the stress from the mind and body. Being content can really make a difference within myself these past week. Just focusing and having a goal makes it actually easy now. One of the key factors from the recovery will be possessing honesty

Gesture the Positive in/Negative out
With gentle precise movement this meditation can be as effective physically as it is mentally & spiritually. I believe that my higher power, or Earth’s energy, is indeed able to take on your negative. At least for a few, it calms you. After this meditation I don’t feel alone w/ my burdens and that i can carry them with a little less weight to them; shared with the universe.

Separating
Observing clouds of dark and light flowing out of my body and collecting & slowly swirling in front of me left me feeling free & clean...but empty. Then the darker clouds of negativity sank to the earth and were absorbed and gone. Feeling empty and noticing the lighter clouds beckoning me with a longing “look”( like a puppy dog wanting to be petted) I invited them in and they gladly rushed into me making me feel like a giant superhero!! I hope to recreate this when needed!! Fun & effective!

Sinking your feelings
I learned that you should try to release your stress into the earth, just let it sink to the bodem of your body. I have not mastered it yet, but I hope I can get a grip of this tactic soon.

Releasing stress into the earth
Letting go of my stress and allowing it to sink into the earth. I had to remind my body to relax several times but, in the end peaceful relaxation.

The earth
I like the idea that the earth can take my stress and transform it into something more and that by sinking into the earth perhaps I can take back that transformed energy in a positive way. My stress felt gritty, like dry, chunky, rocky, sand that’s full of small pebbles. However, it came back smooth and clean like pure beach sand hammered by the waves into something soft and comfortable to walk on.

Stress
Let your stress sink into the earth and let it absorb it. Make it whatever color, state, or basically anything to visualize it being absorbed into the earth. Having the earth take away all your stress.

It helps to do this. The more I listen the better I feel. I could feel my emotions being lifted off my shoulders.

Mindfulness and stress release
I found doing this after a 20 minute or so mindfulness meditation to be very relaxing. After spending time paying attention to my thoughts, switching to this meditation allowed me to better address and focus on my emotions and thoughts causing anxiety. Attaching colora as guided to my feelings and passing them into the earth was very successful and I could feel the stress passing out of me.

Stress
J’imagine le stress comme une fumée rose qui se dégage de mon corps. Elle vient ensuite sous mon corps pour se transformer en support doré. Et chaque fois que je stresse, la fumée vient renforcer le support.

home ownership
do we ever really own it? And even if we do what difference does it make at the end of the day? what makes a house a home? it has nothing to do with the property value or zip code or how it compares to your neighbors or how much stuff is in it or whose name is on the title it’s where the heart is. it’s who you’re with. it’s the love that’s shared in simple things every day. the smell of a favorite pillow a well-worn dog bed the pictures your daughter painted on the walls the bunny in the backyard who munches while you do the dishes the pencil markings of her height behind the door

Just breath
Focusing on your breath and noticing the air going through your nose and coming out of your mouth is a good way of focusing and slowly ease your anxiety or stress.

Releasing Stress
I am very visual and get distracted very easily, so I really like the meditations where I visualize things. I especially like visualizing things that we don’t usually have a visual image for, like anxiety. I pictured my anxiety as lightning bolts, which made a lot of sense. I get a lot of anxious energy when I am feeling anxious. It felt good to “zap those lightening bolts away from me.”

Keven
This one seemed a little linger
Personally I like longer meditations, my mind tends to resist and give in eventually when it comes to meditation. I find those to be very beneficial, but short ones are good too, out of either convenience or at least to keep things consistent to get more into mediation

Layers
This meditation helped me understand why we all sometimes feel caged in anxiety/sadness/regret/embarrassment etc... As I took more and more inhales and exhaled slowly I could feel the layers of feelings and imagery leave my skin into the earth. The more layers you unleash from your skin and body the more your true you could stand out and live life as you really want and should.

Earths solid stability is here for us
We tend to feel that the earth is just a place where our physical being is being upon, the truth is, that our emotional being is on the earth too, and we can use that rocky solid earth stability to hold our stress for us!

Realization
In the midst of this practice, the sound of the vacuum was running in the background. It was difficult to concentrate at first, but with calming words coaxing me not to dwell on distractions, but simply notice them, I found myself able to ignore (mostly) excessive noise.

Connecting with Nature

Good meditation
I did mine a little different I sat in a comfortable position and for some reason I pictured my stress being pushed out of my body from my head down to my toes with each breath. I even talked out loud to God and asked him to take my stress...when the lady on the meditation said to release it to the earth I imagined a magenta color being pushed from my head down through my body out from under my feet and I imagined all of it going away and I talked out loud to God with my eyes closed.

Releasing stress or sadness
I found this helpful as a way to push your stress out and give it to something else instead of holding it inside your body. Giving it to the earth or a higher power definitely helps me cope with it a lot easier.

The darkest place I ever been
I leaned last night that I’m falling further and further down the rabbit hole. Last night after more hard news and an argument I walked out of the house to get some air and walked up to the overpass that oversees the highway by my house and was going to jump off. The only thing that keeps me here and my will to continue and not go that far and the few people who called me and talked me out of it. I learned that I have to live for the people for who love me

My stress
I felt my stress leave my body for a short time. In this world, there are so MANY things to stress over, but our bodies aren’t meant to handle all of those stresses. I am attempting to be more mindful of any ‘unneeded’ stress that I impose upon myself and learn to release it.

Being highly stressed over a break up and tragic death of a dog, mindfulness helps release all the negative energy on to the earth where it belongs. I find myself breathing faster and learned to calm down when i started to focus on breathing.

Letting Go
Mantra: I am letting go of anything I cannot control today. Yesterday, I had a stressful situation appear that is still weighing heavy on me. When I told my husband about the situation, his response was you are choosing to let this situation have control over you. He is right. As I focus on my breathing along with the situation that is causing me stress, on every exhale I silently repeat my mantra while visualizing releasing my stress to the earth. Within a few breath cycles, I start to feel at ease. The weight I am carrying around is getting lighter. By the end of this session, I am feeling grounded.
B

Feeling lighter
I learned that for me, my stress is a black cloud, and is not necessarily negative, there’s just too much of it in my body. I felt lighter after releasing it into the earth, and imagined it breaking up and shooting tendrils underground to prompt seeds to germinate and grow. A small amount of stress is helpful! Too much is overwhelming. I feel much lighter and able to focus.

Reintegration
I have been out of mediation for almost a year now, this was a fulfilling and easy way to feel comfortable about coming back into it. I imagined my stress exiting my body in the form of dirty water that could be released back into the earth to transform into new life.
