Quieting our Thoughts
This would be a wonderful meditation to listen to at bedtime. In this meditation, Darrin gives us a visualization that we can use to quiet down our thoughts and thus, soften our bodies.
I’ve always had a hard time getting a good nights rest since having my back injury, but especially since moving to Texas to be with my mom a few years ago. On a constant basis, I wake up periodically throughout the night. Perhaps it is the mattress, perhaps it is just my injury, I am not sure. Either way, I would always be comforted by laying next to my Kayleigh. Unfortunately, that beautiful comfort I had left me for Rainbow Bridge recently and in going, left a gaping hole in my heart. Thus, at night is when I feel my loss the greatest and when my racing thoughts are never ending.
I began breathing in and out as I visualized a light (my mind) against a wall with a knob on it (my thoughts). With each breath, the knob turned and the light became dimmer, thus quieting my thoughts and softening my body.
By the end of this meditation, my mind has been turned into a blank canvas. With the aid of this visualization and my breathing, my thoughts are quieting and my body has softened. I will definitely remember this visualization. Thank you, Darrin!
