Put it away for a moment....
I may have taken something different away from this than some people but I was able to put some negative things that went on during the day mentally in a drawer next to my bed and take a few moments to just be here in the moment and I felt my body relax and it was spectacular. At first I didn't think I would open the drawer back up but I did and it felt different, like I was more able to handle the negative.

I felt a little distracted
Maybe I'll be better with longer meditations where I can sink in? Loved the visualization tho

Holding on
I learnt that I don't take enough time for myself. I'm holding onto so much and just need to take a step back and get away from it all for a second.

I Learned that...
You can always just let things go and that sad thing will slowly fade away because it's not important enough to keep it in your mind

Day one
I wasn't letting myself feel what I needed to. I immediately started crying and cried through the meditation.
S
Sorn
Thank you this is works!
Only a deep breathe can reduce your anxiety so don't be serious about any problems in your life. It's just a tiny part of life and sure it will be gone soon or later. Learn from it!

Fear, sadness, release
I can feel my sadness without being swept away by it. Usually I am too scared to be in touch with it so I become tense and tight. Afterwards I felt a little release.

Emotional
I started to cry while doing this. Feeling myself as a real person and being able to separate from emotions was great
M

First time I've meditated

Breathe
I learned to breathe and just take a step a back from everything. That everything may not be perfect, but at least for right now, I'm fine.
T
Taylor
Wonderful!
I struggle with derealization so this helped me get back into my body and stop obsessing over current situations- I started crying as soon as this started because I felt like I could finally acknowledge my emotions without being overwhelmed by them.

Day 1 - Distracted..
I found it difficult to concentrate with life going on around me - going to practise another..
C
Cass
Day 1- Depressed and Distracted
Lots of negative thoughts dampen even the happiest of people. I need to be able to let go easier in order to feel lighter. I'm not in control all the time and that's ok. I'm not going to be able to be with people all the time and I am not the center of the world. I'm just cass. I will get better at this.

Letting go and bringing yourself back
We give a part of ourselves to everyone around us and sometimes we forget to bring those bits back. Bringing back the "tendrils" can help us refortify ourselves and find what part of us is missing.

Day one
I feel a bit calm but the sadness still there. The regret about my life, I feel like I'm a useless human being and can't do anything about it, my life like a dead end road. I don't know why I feel so sad and unhappy. It's not that I'm not grateful for good things, it's just this isn't life I want to live. My mind my heart my soul doesn't belong here. This is not what I want. Sometimes I feel like I don't know who I am anymore. I'm losing myself, I feel numb and everything feels so empty. But I still hope this meditation can help me.

It's hard

Tendrils
I really loved the concept of pulling all of you energy back. The image of the tendrils returning back was very powerful for me. Oftentimes I find that my energy is scattered and pulled out into the universe while taxing my soul. Will continue using this image to help fortify myself. Thank you
K
Kaylee
Past
Thinking about mistakes from your past can bring you down. But there is nothing you can do to change them. Focusing on the now makes everything a little lighter.

3 mins can change a lot
It's so helpful to have shorter more frequent check-ins throughout the day. It brings more quality to whatever you're about to do next, enhances your meditation practice as well as the experience of your life!

I lost myself (rant)
This year I lost my first love. Dated for over a year but were best friends 3 years before dating. I loved him since we first became friends. He cheated on me and I lost who I was. I spoke to my mom about the depression that I have had since middle school (I was bullied bad and was very suicidal) but I didn't tell anyone bc I was scared. But I got medication to help and stated to feel like my self again. One month later I lost my mamaw. I feel back into the person I didn't know. Three months later I lost my other mamaw, nanny. Mom wouldn't take me back to the doctors to get more antidepressants and I started to do bad stuff again. Like sleeping around, smoking, and drinking. Anything really to feel good for a bit. I then died my hair. I couldn't recognize myself and it made me feel depressed so I dyed my hair. Well I started writing again to help myself clear my head and I feel better but I still don't recognize myself and I don't know if it's the newly bleached hair or what, but yea

It's ok to be sad
I learned that it's ok to be sad and cry, it's nothing to be ashamed of, actually you will feel better once you get it out. When letting go of something or someone it's better to face your emotions head on rather than push them away
M
Melanie
Sometimes you have to stop and give yourself permission to let go.
By letting go it doesn't mean that you're giving up that part of your life or person... it just means that you're loosening your grip and giving yourself the chance to move on and keep going.

3 minutes
I have been going through so much. My depression has only been getting worse. I feel stuck in this pit that I can't get out of. Old memories good and bad haunt me. I got sexually assaulted by my ex boyfriend a little over a month ago and now police are involved. I blame myself for telling too many people and also staying with him after that. I'm no longer in contact with this person but they're screaming in my thoughts. All the time. I can't stop thinking. I loved them and I thought they loved me back. How are we here now? I've lost friends who were close to me. High School is draining and sometimes I lose the desire to try. I woke up this morning and something really changed. During those 3 minutes I truly escaped all of this without drugs or alcohol. It gave me hope. I feel renewed.

What a difference 7 minutes can make
If u take just a few minutes to put your worries away and take care of yourself it can start your day fresh and manageable. I woke up immediately overwhelmed and now feel more relaxed and focused and ready to tackle the day one task at a time.

Taking a break for yourself
It's easy for me to get caught up in my to do lists. And have that thought "as soon as I finish all these tasks, then I can take a break." This was a good reminder that all those tasks and to-do's can wait. This was a refreshing 3 minute break and really helped me feel a little more chill. Thank you Aura. :)

I learned that mediation or trying mediation for the first time is just another thing to make me feel stupid and worthless as I didn't understand it and there was no guidance or instruction prior to do it it has frustrated me and made my mood worse

Being Okay
This last week has been mortifying. But I realized it's okay not to feel great. It's okay to be in a confused state. What's not okay is to be hard on yourself. As long as you strive to be better being Okay for a while will have to do

My heart
I have a big heart that pours itself into the lives of others. Mostly with people I am not that particularly close with. At work I try to be kind but am often frustrated. It hurts that people are not kind to me so I disconnect. It felts good to take back what I have given out though. I need love and kindness from myself. It is ok that others in my life do not give me the type of love I desire. My family gives me the love that I need though and that is what is most important in life

Sad
I am worried about love. The indifference and lack of interest in me, from my husband, puts me in an anxious and sad mood. Everything else is just great! I feel I've improved a lot in every other aspect of my life
K

Emotions
I have realised in myself that I am not in control of my emotions when I am put in a conversation that I am not truly comfortable in. My emotions come out as anger and my defences go up. I need to learn how to control these and take a step back from the moment and realise that I am not being attacked.
S

Stressors
I Learned That Stressing Over The Same Thing Only Makes Your Life Worse. Taking Actions On What The Source Of The Problem Is Helps You Out And Makes You Feel Way Better. Being Mad And Sad Only Hurts You And Makes Others Around You Feel Sad. It's Up To You To Get Your Life Together And Relieve The Stress Off Of Yourself.

Paul
Being Me
As I journey in this life I give a lot of myself and need, not want, to remember to bring my selves back home so I can be whole and complete in the moment I'm in. It's ok to place important things and feelings aside for a moment and be free of them and that doesn't make them less than or insignificant just that they are there waiting and being cared for by the Greatness of Holy one.
J

Love
Sometimes love is hard, you don't want to be alone yet you always seems to be stuck. It feels good to let that go and accept loneliness even for just a moment..
M
Maria
Assembly
sometimes I feel like I'm not a full person anymore. I think, it is because I give a lot but cannot easily accept or receive good vibes from others. Probably because I believe, that I'm not worth it. My brain knows that thats not right, but my insecurities win when I'm not attentive. So I learned today to focus on myself and get pieces of me back to my center to have the full power to fight my insecurities.

What we carry with us
I keep noticing that I'm carrying around a lot of "junk" or "baggage" in my mind. Setting down the baggage feels good. I'm reminding myself that I don't have to carry all these extra things around with me all the time. Checking in on my breathing, renewing my energy... so life-giving.

Hospice Situation with both my parents
I can release them to be at peace with God. Time to let go and release the shackles placed on us yet God has blessed each of us by being by my side everyday to deal with the stressful letting go and trusting Jesus to never leave our side. I put all of the stress I'm caring down amd place my family in his arms. Look into their eyes and listen to our hearts. I am searching for the feelings I am feeling. Tonight at religious gathering I felt and released my Barriers him? You have broken our chains, we are his children and He wants to see us all happy...well our parents are waiting for you kingdom . I believe my dad needs some Saving and feels unworthy. However my mother has regressed into childhood wanting her mom asks dad. I had a vision of mom smiling and walking with Jessus feeling unworthy. For dad soon don would be am awesome meeting for hon. Along with Aunt Melba amd Selma. Pray for dad to fond the love and peace he will need.

I'm really thinking of giving up
I don't know what it is but none of these sessions I've participated in are really helping me. The words I heard in this session sound very nice, but I didn't experience one moment of tranquility or peace. I followed exactly what was said throughout this exercise as I have with every other. I'm thinking of giving up these exercises because they're not working for me. I go through the motions of doing them, but I find no solace in this anymore. Maybe the aura app just doesn't work for me. I'm sure it works for others but why even bother if I'm not even feeling slightly relieved from anxiety, stress, and depression?

Objects
Felt good to place my feelings and emotions that are stressing me out as objects somewhere else, where they will be safe while I let go and meditate. I was able to feel a little bit of me, and it's been a really long time. A long stressful, emotionally controlling relationship and rough separation. First session was good. Unfortunately, the objects are back weighing on me. Hopefully it gets better :/

Letting go
Letting go of the things I am attached to was difficult and I even thought, setting it aside as a safe object, they were a blanket. A blanket that I didn't want to let go of but I folded up mentally to put in a space that only exists in my mind.

I learned/still learning
I learned that my mind often goes into monologue overdrive and it is often unkind thoughts towards myself. Sometimes it gives a free pass to people who actually say these things to me and I don't call them out on it because it sounds *exactly* how I talk to myself. I'm learning to shut down these negative voices (internal and external) one at a time 💪🏼

Good Night 11-2-17
It was a very busy day ending with a medical emergency with a family member, who is okay now; but I learned that the power of prayer, believing, and Aura and a little tears will get you through. I also had some friendly support on the home front from the fur babies and what not, but my anger did not prevail!

Alone
In a life that feels like it has been overcome by sadness and challenges every day, it is often difficult just to get up in the morning, out of bed, and make it through the day. It is a warm feeling, however, to know that I may not be alone in my feelings.

Trust Your Heart
I learnt that people often don't really stop for a while and make a recollection of what they've been through, nor a vision of their future; Halt everything for a moment, take a breather and put your thoughts in a mindmap. Let the little blobs pop whenever a thought come up. Now you have a map of your mind, the process of your thoughts, and you can zoom out to look at the bigger picture of where you are. Ignoring your thoughts simply won't make it. The next step is to find solutions to settle these things, while eliminating what you can't control and putting them aside. Have faith that the world will resolve itself in someway and that you can always make it through; have patience, with everything around you, and with yourself. Life has its way to make a path for the things that are meant to be; All you have to do is control your reaction to it, and use wisely the time that has been given to you. Hold on to the belief that everything will be alright. Do good; Be well; Trust your heart.

Not good enough
Sometimes you need to let things go for a moment in order to keep yourself healthy. Without that moment of letting go the weight continues to push down on you and control your life, every so often you have to realize that you are just not good enough. When you realize this you are then able to work on yourself from the inside out, a happy internal you is a happier outside you.

Self-love
All the love that I give to the people around me - when I withdrew them back to me and wrap myself with the whole of it, I felt so overwhelmed I started crying. If I loved myself the same way I send my love out to people around me, how much happier will I be? I deserve this love, all of it, that I have been channelling out. Every time I'm grateful to someone for something, I should thank myself too.

Fortified and Vulnerable
Healing is a soft and fragile process. Fortification is gentle, nurturing and vulnerable. I don’t need to push myself through an imitation of military basic training everyday, or hurt myself when I make mistakes. I don’t need all that to be strong. I simply need to bring myself back to the moment and breathe into the essence of my true form of being. I need to love myself and give my heart the replenishment it craves. This is the way to be fortified everyday. ❤️💕

somethings are better left untold
I am the most important person to me. People are cruel, and they can and will use your weaknesses against you. I need to trust only my closest friends with my secrets. But I need to keep my enemies even closer. Get to know their weaknesses so if need be, I have ammo, and they don’t.

Period sad emotions
You can detach from you emotions in a healthy way. Aka when having feelings of loneliness or isolation — aka my feelings that I am not valued in relationships and insecure in those relationships — I can put those aside in a vase and say hey I’m going to listen to other things right now. I’m going to take care of myself and listen to my body instead of those sad parts.

It’s okay to be sad.
My first medication session brought some stuff up. I feel a little sad and raw. I realise how much I grip onto negative feelings, thoughts, interactions I can’t let go of, things that hurt me, negatives relationships and situations. I visualised a place for these thoughts. Deep inside a forest, there’s little black flowers. Each flower represents one of these thoughts. This is where they live, this is their resting space. Not overruling me and taking up my mind. 🖤
L

This won’t be easy... life is sorta crappy but also little things... seem to be the most of what I’m happy about... when I looked at the bigger things I wanted to cry... but then I looked deeper... and that’s where my happiness is... I think this means that the bad things are pretty big and they take up a lot of my emotions and perspective of life... which is quite unfortunate
L
Lauren
Lets things go
I can hold on to a feeling longer than anyone I know. I am capable of never forgetting and never dealing and never addressing and never changing. But I think I could be capable of loving myself enough to let go of pain. If I focus so closely on me and my spirit and my growth. I may be able to let go.

Not easy
This one is not an easy practice for me. Maybe because it is only 3 minutes and it would take longer to understand and feel it. Maybe it is the meditation itself.

Holding onto?
I am stressed because I’m in the third or fourth day of a stunning headache, but “in pain” wasn’t a choice. Based on my “stressed “ selection I got this session were I’m asked to let go of whatever bothers me, but I’ve been trying to let this headache go for days with no luck! Not one of my more productive meditations. 😟
