Mindful Moments
This session begins with deep breathing to make it easier to soften and loosen the grip physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.  Feel an actual releasing of the grip over whatever it is you're holding on to.  In truth, this life is short.

Soften and Let Go Again
I often hold myself tense, whether it's due to anxiety, stress, or simply feeling uncomfortable and this meditation provided me with a reminder to soften and simply let go as I focus on my breath. To bring awareness to my body and allow it to go soft, to relax into just being and so find a soothing center. I shall be returning to this practice a lot more often! Thank You!

Relief
I often don't realize how much tension I hold. This Mindful Moment felt so good as it reminded me to soften those places. And when I do that, I can release and let go. This was so gentle and so good.

Hard edge
I am amazed at how much I hold a hard edge to my body. This was a good meditation to focus on letting the hardness go and to be more relaxed and stress-free.

I must increase my daily streak every day. :B Ever since I've started using Aura. My life, myself and I! Have slowed down. I am able to listen to what the world has to say. :)

I learned that in order to soften, we must let go of the things that harden us. Those things that harden us are temporary - be it worries, anxieties, thoughts, or imaginations. They can all fade away once we acknowledge our breath and soften.

Softening and relaxing
This was just the warmth and kindness I needed after a difficult morning appointment. The meditation got me to focus on my breath and brought me to calm and peace. I saved it and will return to it at need.

During the forest sounds.
I learned that if I visualize my self being there physically it pays off even more. And it relaxes even Further. So imagine being there in person with a 360 degrees vision all around with your eyes closed.

I hold a lot of tension along my body, especially my neck, shoulders/shoulder blades, as well as my lower back. This is just what I needed to be attentive to those areas & release low vibration energy I know I hold onto in those same areas.

I learned that by focusing on breathing I can relax fully and let worries drift away. Softening is also a lovely way to release tension- which I didn't even know I had!

Soften and Let Go
Each breath is a life breath. What a great realization and reminder! I also felt that taking a breath as though it were my last was quite a revelation. Today my breath is more in tune with what matters: living, letting go and giving love.

I'm going to be having lots of stress over the next 3 months but if I can realize that this too shall pass and that this temporary discomfort will pass and greater things are to come as a result I think I will be ok. Plus remembering that life is short and at the end of the day these things don't matter much in the grand scheme of things. Also I realize that I'm blessed to have such a wonderful supportive and encouraging network of friends and family. To know that I am loved will get me trough this time and my desire to not let them down.

Breathing is so important
I learned that breathing is connected to relaxation. As I use deep breathing techniques, it's easier to relax the parts of my body that are tense. This meditation helped so maybe there's a light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to relief from anxiety.

Stress exits with breath.
And Calm enters with breath. Such a lovely wash of refocus with this gift to myself of a few short moments to breath, recenter and release.

That was amazing. I felt like I died. It was euphoric and comfortable. I learned that maybe death ain't so bad. But of course, I'll let it get me on it's own time.

Taking time to breathe
I've never focussed on my breathing or even the importance of it and it took me to heaven & back. That was so comfortable and relaxing, I'm looking forward to continuing

True love
I have been really good at "finding love" in all the wrong places. As I heal, I still have hope for true love. True love for me. True love for others. The more I love myself, the more I believe I am worth it. I can't wait to see where my path leads. I do believe we all can find true love.

Dedication
I have learned that to be dedicated you can't rely on success to fuel you, you have to dig deeper than that. Because success is not guaranteed but the will and drive that comes from within, that is a choice and you can always choose to keep going.

I realized I have so much tension in my body that it makes it physically hard to relax. This is good to know because now I can work on improving it.

Just relax
In life you may have stress which can create tension in the body. Sometimes we just need a few breathes to loosen up and realize it’s all apart of life.

To relax is to let go
And to be open, and to be gentle, and soft, and kind, within. To rush is to force, tension is too much strength applied. Illness is the result of violence to myself.

I learned that this was a very accurate title. I breathe too slow and deep to keep in time with her at first but she soothed me into a softening sequence that had me melting into my seat! Glad I was in the car with my seatbelt on!! (I was parked and waiting for someone, in case you are wondering🙄) Felt terrific afterwards and never heard the ending music so not sure how long a was puddled up in there...

Miracle of life
Floating i look below me. Crystal clear water with stone stairs leading down to a cavernous space. Lights sparkle, I can’t tell if it is sunlight glinting on the water or individual lights moving under the surface. I realise that I don’t see my reflection, am i in the air or in the water and I am gazing up through it. I breath, slow and deep - it doesn’t matter ... I am suspended and unafraid. Supported and ready to explore.

softening?
i don’t think i fully understand the concept of “softening” the body during moments focused on breathing. about 3/4 of the way through this meditation i started to feel really uneasy due to the mention of impending death and i didn’t like that at all.

Taking time
I learned that taking time is important sometimes that’s not easy yet without it we lose touch of ourselves. Breathing controls that and helps me take the time I need

Although I love the idea and practice of softening, I learned that it is difficult to completely soften and relax when you are “working “ to hear the facilitator. I was acutely aware of the writer/editor in me; every time the facilitator said, “from your tail to your head” I wanted to revise it to “tailbone “. 😊 clearly I didn’t completely soften. 😅

I have noticed it has been a challenging for me to soften. In many ways. This helps me to just allow the softening to happen. To just be as I am. Not what I was taught to be, with a “should be” or a “must do”. Just a breath. I have been thinking about Om a lot when I feel stressed. And that has helped me connect to my breath. Great meditation! 😊

Even though it felt a little humorous softening my "tail" (insert fart noise) I committed to the journey. Mindfully relaxing my body certainly helps me return to a more calm state. The end justified the quirky means. Thumbs up.

I really liked this meditation. I just feel so distracted lately by the things that are stressing me out. Meditation helped to balance my thoughts, emotions, and reactions. But for the last two weeks it has not been doing the trick. Maybe I need to upgrade to longer sessions?

Balanced ⚖️
That felt good. I feel more balanced tonight than i have in a little while, despite not being super healthy or productive tonight. Maybe i set good emotional boundaries. Maybe i committed to yoga and meditation. Maybe I committed to being in nature. These things matter- they help my soul function on a higher level.

Posture, again
At first I found it hard to relax in a sitting position, but it might have something to do with being somehow wary all the time whenever I’m with other people, and/or only relaxing at home when I’m lying down. Now I realized I can maintain good posture (and be awake!) and still be relaxed!

The Gatekeeper
I had anticipated this face to face meeting with apprehension since the initial phone conversation. She had sounded so dispassionate, so inflexible, so unwilling to listen to reason, refusing to take our extenuating circumstances into consideration. After hanging up, I analyzed my options. Then I took appropriate action to obtain the required documents as explicitly stated in the on-line form, even going above and beyond what the instructions indicated. Which was a very good thing. She was nothing like I had imagined. Just a decent person in a tough job. My heart went out to her when she told us about the cancer, which I had suspected when we first sat down. She had customized the necessary documents to include additional requirements, contradicting what was supposed to be a uniform, district-wide policy. But we had come prepared.

Grounded
I’ve just had an awful financial experience while on vacation and my blood pressure was through the roof. To be honest, I was starting to fly off the handle ranting and directing my aggression towards friends via harsh and curt responses to their simple and well-intentioned queries. This meditation grounded my breathing which helped bring down my anger/stress levels and helped me let go of the tension that naturally directs itself to my upper back and shoulders when I’m aggravated. Granted, I honestly feel like I want to cry now, and I just may in order to release the stress. But, the feeling of wanting to cry out in frustration instead of raging in seething anger, is the more welcome emotion at the moment. It’s okay to cry out to avoid bottling these negative feelings and experiences within myself. It’s a bad moment right now. But this too, shall pass.

Letting go
I noticed that when I’m stressed & trying to beat deadlines at work, I’m so wound up, even my muscles feel tight, especially at the neck and back. Taking a few minutes to breathe mindfully and soften myself is a helpful break from the tension. The work and the deadline are still there, but taking a breather helps me to focus more.

Stopping bad habits
I recognized that one of my bad habits was thinking negatively about what is about to happen in my life. I’m moving into my dorm room the day after tomorrow and I’m afraid. The idea feels very unfamiliar and unwelcome. But I know that while I’m really scared and anxious about moving, I know that by it being unfamiliar, it will also be exciting. To be honest, although it helped some, the things I feel are most worrying are still there in my mind and I don’t know how to be calm.

You will certainly feel the difference when you keep guided meditations a simple habit everyday 😌🧘🏻‍♀️

How do we let ourselves forget - even for a moment - how miraculous it is that we are even here? That we are where we are? That we’re even capable of breath and thought? Life is short. Be humbled and grateful by these gifts.

Soften and Let It Go Again
I have been so busy and stressed lately. It was.so nice to to sit and breathe. To just be. To be reminded that the breath is here for me.

Distracted
I had already done a 5 minute session in another app, and my brain was telling me to go do things 2 minutes into this 3 minute session.

First time
This made me grateful to be alive through all the mess I’m going through now. How precious the body and breathing is and how we only get one chance to do this life thing. To not take the ability to breathe for granted. It’s a beautiful miracle that I’m still here.

Used the pause technique from Lauren’s live meditation session on her Facebook group ”Busy People Meditating” last night with this teaching!

It is so nice to stop and appreciate what the lungs do. Nice break in my day. Take care everyone

Reigning my thoughts in is like herding cats
I discovered that it was very hard for me to focus on the meditation, likely due to anxiety over the coronavirus situation. I was so grateful for this break in my day though and just tried to bring my attention back to my breathing as often as needed, as well as just enjoying the soothing sounds even when I couldn’t concentrate on what the voice was saying. This app is amazing and I am super grateful for it right now in isolation especially.

Softening is so relaxing.
I especially love it when she gets to the eyes. I never think about softening behind my eyes. It feels fantastic. And softening the top of my head. The tension drains away and creates an opening that allows divine energy to flow to me and through me - it is the best. 💖

Even three little minutes can make an incredible difference in how I feel and how I move throughout my day. Thank you Lauren for your marvelous meditations!

Grounded
This practice went by a lot faster than I thought. I felt grounded and didn’t want it to end.

Much better
I feel much better, had a very long day at work, on top of that I’m stressed out, mentally and emotionally.. I’ll get over this like I’ve always done.

I noticed that I usually have a lot of tension built up in my body as the day passes.
I learned to soften my muscles and let my body relax. This is something I need to be conscious of

soften and let go
I need to stop worrying about little things and look at the big picture of life. Nothing I do is really a big deal and I’m putting too much pressure on small situations. I need to live in the present and learn as I go🤍

Breathing
The coach of this session is right people tend to take breathing for granted myself included. However, it really is a miracle that such a small automatic act keeps everything on earth alive . In future I will remember to breathe with more gratitude and appreciation for the fact that I can do so. Me everyone who reads this have a great day!
