 (Guided by WITHIN teacher Devon Pipars) Take some time to notice it is not your doing and control that keeps you alive!  Recognize the effortlessness of existing to take some of the pressure and expectation off of yourself.

Simple
I don’t need to stress about wanting to get high. I just have to acknowledge that I am without the thing I have be with for so long and therefore it only natural to experience withdrawal Symptoms. I just need to remember that this to shall pass...right?? Regardless I cannot continue with things that way anymore. Time to try something new. Time to take a break from doing drugs . I want to act, look, feel, and think differently.

“Everything That Isn’t You”
“Exhale, letting everything that isn’t you be released.” That sounds like a purifying mantra I will hang on to.

It felt good to breathe deeply and let go of doing. Thank you for reminding me of all that functions independent of my efforts everyday...all day long. For this I am grateful!🙏

Allowing...
What a great session on Allowing. Mainly focus on breathing and allowing the body to just do what it does without me thinking about it. I felt the stress release and allowed it to drip off me and not be a part of me any more. Ahhh.... ❤️😑🍀

Mini Break
It has been a busy morning. This meditation was a wonderful time out to just relax for a few moments. The main focus was on our body which is pretty miraculous on its own. The way our body continues to function on its own without any effort.

Effortless Existence
There is something to be appreciated abiut just being alive. That our body, soul and spirit are so connected that we do not have to make any choices to exist. Imagine. Having to make all of these choices. When to breathe. When to blink. When to digest. Our body does all of this for us. So that we can focus on things like our goals. The present moment. Our loved ones. How effortlessly we exist. That if we let go and slow down. We can recognize the perfectly timed, in sync processes that our body has to keep us safe. It knows what I need and when I need it. Why would I not do my best to keep my body at its optimum performance? Breathe in and trust in the process.

Need for control
Things work without you having to control every component. Breathe, relax and don't give all yourself out. You need some for you.

I am often so busy trying to do things that I do not allow myself to just be. It is in those moments of being where the beauty lies.

i have been feeling a bit anxious on a project that i am doing tomorrow, but this meditation reminded me that worrying and stressing does not do anything to help. instead i need to calm the mind and relax into it <3

Baby moving and felt calm
I am able to tune out extra noise. While doing this in the nurses station at work. Sometimes I forget to breathe but that is what is most helpful when I feel stressed

What a beautiful reminder... we exist effortlessly. I need to remember that stress and worry does not solve anything! To release everything that is not me on the out breath

Everywhere at once…
Even though death has come to sow its seeds I keep a peeled eye in my pocket for any and all silver linings.
