Awareness of Sound
I thoroughly enjoyed this meditation as I usually try so hard to block the sounds out and focus on my breathing. It’s still something I struggle with (though I give myself no judgement for it) but it is something I am finding I can slowly master over time. I feel like if I can block out sounds while meditating it will help with other roles in my life, such as giving me patience to not instantaneously react to negative situations, rather, acknowledging them, taking my time to understand them, and then finding positive ways to manage them. But through this meditation it was extremely relaxing (almost hypnotic?) to welcome the sounds. I encouraged sounds I would not usually pay attention to - the creaking in the house, the wind outside, and even a mouse scuttling in my roof! (Which will no doubt be my mothers next project to attempt elimination of 😒😂). This mediation will for sure help me with my future meditations as I think it will help me acknowledge the sounds and let them pass, rather than block them entirely.
