Feeling emotional? This practice will help you ground yourself, by feeling into the soles of the feet on the floor.

Focusing on something specific helps
I truly enjoy meditations where the teacher has us focus on one part of our body. This is great practice which I can carry with me into my day. Linda is easily understood and has good volume. Easy for my ears to hear her. I especially enjoyed her validating the experience of differentiating between pain, numbness, as just sensations and not to be owned by the feelings. A good session.

Awareness of the Feet versus Full Body Scan
As Nick said, this meditation focuses on only one part of the body, the feet. It's a good idea to focus solely on this part. Why? A meditator can sometimes get overwhelmed when doing a complete body scan. For me, with other body scans, it seems that I just get accustomed to focusing on one section, or part of the body, and then, I abruptly have to fixate on another part. By simply gravitating attention to the feet, I am able to get more out of the meditation so I feel more calm and mindful as a result.

All body parts need our care and my feet work all day! They loved the attention and relaxation.

Grounded
There is power in feeling grounded. Power in the way I stand. Power in depending on my own two feet. I can sense this power now.

Sinking
I learned that it's immersive to let the mind sink into the feet and just to feel it rather than think about the feet

Never thought about the soles of my feet being part of mindfulness
part of mindfulness. Should be easy to remember, even when standing.

Appreciating the forgotten
By taking time to pay attention to how our feet feel we can learn to remember their needs as well as our own

Thinking, Soles of Feet
It was a good reminder that ruminating about feelings over and over can be unhealthy, and that grounding in your body can bring some perspective on this. Emotions can be heightened at holiday times, meditation and mindfulness are even more important.

I like the idea of healthy distraction like this but I found it difficult to focus.

Feeling used
I learned that I need to reconnect with myself. I am annoyed at the way other people treat me and the way I let other people treat me. I can’t control them but I can control me and I need to re-center myself before I respond to others.

I learned that being more aware of other things in your body can help the world slow down when it seems to be going at full speed.

Sensations
By focusing my attention on the soles of my feet and the sensations of them, I was able to take my mind off the stress of the morning.

Soles of the Feet
It was interesting to focus on the sensations in the soles of my feet since, due to neuropathy, that is exactly the area of my body that loves to draw my attention. But to my surprise, I found this practice to be refreshing and I will try it again...especially when my feet are “screaming” at me. I have learned that mindfulness and meditation are quite helpful in calming the Central Nervous System. Thanks again, Lyndi. 🙏🏻

I learned that if you really put your focus to what is being said it can really calm you down. The voices are soothing as well. A really nice experience.

Useful practice to help focus our attention. Unfortunately, I was distracted this morning. Will try again another day. Happy Friday everyone!
