Soothing breath
Using a slow and controlled breath can help ease some of the tension I've been holding on to. I'm slowly starting to let go of my demons so I can heal.

I found deep breathing relaxing
I liked putting my hand above my chest -- that was really useful for starting deep breathing

I learned that I quite like these more simple forms of meditation. The soothing breathe as well as maneuvering the hand over the abdomen actually helped me release my tension.

The feeling of letting go felt natural again. So many things we rush to get or accomplish, forgetting the beauty of just being in the moment.. Like a Sunrise and Sunset!

Soothing breath
I learned that by taking the time to consciously focus on my breath it helped me let go of things I wasn’t even aware of I was gripping so tightly. That helped ease the anxious racing mind that I awoke to. Much nicer start to my day. 😊Repeat as needed.

First day of learning mindfulness and after a breakup
When she said "Let's feel content" I unconsciously smiled and felt at peace with myself. And breathing makes it easier for me to let go of stress and bad feelings. Thank you! I hope I will make meditation and mindfulness become a habit and it will improve my life :)

The sole of living
Some days we just need to let out stress. I've always heard to breathe in and out and to take deep breaths when feeling stressed or overwhelmed, but it's never really helped. Today's meditation taught me that I need to be relaxed while doing so. If we don't breathe, then we won't live. Breathing is the heart of surviving. We all need to take breaks sometimes to just enjoy the air that God has surrounded us with. I feel so calm after this. Thank you!

I could use this during moments when I am feeling stressed. Just taking a moment away from what is happening to release the stress I’m feeling.

I always feel rushed during the deep breathing moments because I can't help but take long deep breaths. Then I just get more anxious because I'm feeling rushed. Argh.

Letting Go
I love the imagery of letting go like a gardener after a long day finally sitting down. I was really able to relate to that sense of letting go and relaxing, which really helped me to be able to let go of my own tension and stresses.

Letting Go
I find that slow deep breaths really are soothing. I didn’t feel I had any tension to let go of in the beginning, but got confused when she said to let your breath be natural and then said something about a deep breath and then I just had to let that go.

🌞Smooth ❄️Breathing ❄️Today 🌞
Good Morning my Aura Family. My oldest daughter decided to call me today and told me mom I took the day off you want to go out and have lunch. I think it'll be nice for us just to hang out together so she's bringing my grandson and I'm bringing my baby too and we're going to hang out together. It's always good to be thankful and count my blessings my Family means Love to me. My husband called me this morning to tell me that he's getting sick I guess he's over our argument and that he booked us a vacation for spring break. By the way I did take a good Aura Family members advice and I text him last night because I wasn't going to call and I told him I was Sorry. He text me back and he said I know we both are Sorry. So I knew today would be a better day smooth breathing. Always be Thankful. Thank all of you for your Support Last Night Breathing Is Easier Today.

Content
"Content, for one moment, just to be." (What?! Reflection too short to record. Please write more. Nice test! You got me. I lost my contentness and became frustrated) Need more practice.

Just a few minutes...
Just a few minutes of solitude for yourself, to allow you to breathe in and exhale any negativity that is preventing you from your own sense of calm. Nothing is too important that you can’t take three minutes for you.

Thoughts
I learned that I want to be more aware of my thoughts and not let them control my emotions or feeling which in turn would affect my behavior and how I act. I want to be in control.

Reaching Happiness
I learned to let go of my resentments and be contented for what I had now. I'm glad to saw my family, relatives and friends rejoicing with my dad's birthday celebration, specially the happiness that I saw in my dad's face. He was a funny bone one! I'm very glad to received it as well! So many things to say but I can't say it all, all I can do for now was to share my love for you, Happy Birthday Dad! <3

When you are stressed, sometimes it is hard to slow down and realize that everything is going to be okay. However, something as simple as taking some mindful breaths may help to release your stress. If every time that you were stressed you could just take a few deep, peaceful breaths, your life would probably be less stressful.☺️☁️👍🏻

Happy ever after
This meditation was a perfect ending to a great day. The little things I worried about went away and I know I won’t have to revisit them again. I flopped on my bed and just breathed and felt relief and gratitude that I am here, healthy and happy. Blessings to you, Cindy, for this meditation. ❤️🌷

Let it go
Little niggles, gripes from the day before, worries and troubles. Why take the unwanted baggage to a new day. Start fresh, new beginnings, see light through the darkness, it’s beckoning warm light entices you to dream of better things to come, promises hope. May that light be forever in your reach and achieved.

The Breath: A Self Soothing Mechanism
Much of the time, I have trouble soothing my own emotions. Instead of calming the emotional storm myself, I often look to others to do it for me. Today, however, I realized that through meditation, mindfulness, or pranayama, I can indeed self soothe. It’s time to turn inward, toward the self for calming, rather than to outside sources. All of the wisdom and answers lies within.

I learned that breathing and focus is the important thing. Rather than WORRYING about HOW exactly your breathing. Like follow the technique, but don’t over-analyze. I love when she says. You may even sigh. And then later on, just BE. By then everything was natural and I was feeling anxiety fall away.

I enjoy the aspect of the breathing but I didn’t like the lady’s voice who did the session. She talked about a gardener and sighing and it distracted me and made me feel like I had to sigh.

It was hard not to let my mind wander. I obviously have a huge thing on my mind right now that detracts attention from everything else. It will get better. You will be okay.

That even if you don’t sleep as much as you should smooth breathing can really help ( I’m a 14 year old dancer I dance 45 min away from my house and every night get out of dance at 9:30 so coming home knowing I can do aura is great)

This can be practiced anywhere. Keep your eyes open and stare off, breath in (with nourishment), and breath out (letting all anxiety, worries, or fears go). Practice this when you are nervous ex: right before going in for a job interview

Letting go
The moment I closed my eyes and started focusing on my breathing, I couldn’t stop yawning and I actually almost fell asleep just before the session ended. It made me realize how tired I was and how I always chose to stay up juuust a little longer until it was the middle of the night. I need to pay more attention to my sleeping schedule.

Breathing in I imagine a golden light filling me with love, peace, and good health. As I exhale I release negativity and/or anxiety I may be holding onto. This makes for a much more soothing, restful sleep. Goodnight 🦋

Unwinding
I learned that I’ve been thinking about meditation all wrong. Recently I’ve been stopping throughout my day, whether I’ve had a stressful moment or just life happening in general, and breathing for a minute or two and just realizing that everything is okay. No matter what’s happened, what’s going to happen, or what’s happening, in that moment I am okay and I wish everyone could feel like this always. I wish I could just talk to everyone and tell them they’re okay because even if you’re feeling down or stressed people still love you and are there for you. If you’re reading this I hope you have a great day/night and know that you are loved. Thank you

don’t stress, just breathe.
i usually always panic when i feel incapable of completing an assignment for college even though a graduated a year early from high school. i noticed most people see things in me that i probably still don’t see in myself. i think i’m hard on myself sometimes honestly. by being a perfectionist, i just like things to go smoothly and easily. i stay up so late just to do work and i try to make a schedule but things get tough throughout the week considering i’m a full time student. however, i’ll be sure to take a break from working then take nice deep breaths and whisper positive things to myself.

I’ve heard many great reviews about this Aura app and had to try it for myself since i’ve been feeling down lately and have been wanting to do something different. So far, I really like how it’s set up and even though the results take time, I already feel better just know that something can help me take the time to relax.

A round and around it goes. The next thought pushing out the current thought. Racing thoughts prevent relaxation and sleep. My mind slows when I slow my breath. Slowly but surely one minute at a time, my thoughts slow down.

Lyndi happily
Glad to be given a track from Lyndi tonight. Didn't really find the emotion I was feeling in the list, so ended up choosing ”stressed” tonight, though what I really am is angry. I KNOW I had a stroke, and that my mind and temper are both short served anymore, but I DO know some things! Remember some things! Why can't my family understand that!?! I was in my office most of the day, working with computers, doing my best. I was feeling pretty proud of myself too! Then my 11y/o showed up after school and whisked her iPhone away from her desk in my office where I had been working on it. No one would listen to me that I had accomplished a goal, had a plan in place. Was accomplishing things and was feeling proud of myself! Dad’s got a broken brain. Dad gets angry easily. Dad couldn't possibly know what he's doing anymore! 😡🤬😡🤬😡🤬😡
