When we meditate, we choose an "anchor" to hold our attention and coax our mind to stay still. In this meditation, you'll experiment with two different anchors: the sounds in your environment, and the sensations in your body. By zeroing in on those two aspects of your present moment, you'll train your mind to be fully aware of what is alive for you in the here and now.

Raining...
Fairly non-interesting session raising awareness of the sounds going on around us. Mine was mainly composed of the morning traffic in the background until there was a little break in it and then I became aware of the rain falling. It took over as background music and made things a bit nicer. By the end there were also a few bird calls sprinkled in the moments of silence. That was pretty much it...

Sounds🎼& Sensations
I learned that sounds & sensations helps us create awareness of what’s going on around us as well as within us, externally and internally, outside and inside our heart ♥️

Sounds & Sensations
Sometimes the sensations/pain in my body draws so much of my attention. It was a relief to focus also on the sounds around me.

I learned that my breathing is such a relaxing sound to me and in that way i feel more that capable of doing that during the day to ease my stress and body strain

Relaxed
I feel more relaxed, ready to start my day. It wasn’t too calming, so I didn’t fall asleep which is good!

I meditated on the beach.
Enough said. I was on the beach. Waves crashing. Humid sea breeze blowing on my face. :-)

I shared a personal story on social media and am humbled by all of the positive response I am getting. I hope that my message was empowering to others.
