This meditation gives you a powerful visualization for practicing the art of mindfulness, which is observing your thoughts and feelings from a neutral perspective, without attachment or resistance. They are like the currents of the river rushing past you, while you, the observer, are like a rock in the riverbed. This allows you to stay anchored in a calm state of awareness, which you can then bring back into your day. Photo by JAMES WESTMAN from Pexels www.christina-mcmahon.com
This really didn't do much for me. I had trouble connecting to the words and focusing. It felt a little too vague.
I'm feeling more stress after this meditation than I did beforehand.
Everything is flowing around me regardless of what I let in. So I have to be very selective on what I let move me or what I let in or I will get pushed down the stream by everything else.
I am the rock in the river bend
I love this reminder and the visualization that my thoughts and feeling flow through me and past me like the currents of a river bend, but I am a rock..Never getting swept up in the current. I also love the reminder that I am not my thoughts or feelings.
I couldn't stop thinking about my dog river, and then this meditation came up!
Had a mindful breakfast and I think breathing deeply improves digestion at a rapid pace
I can just observe my thoughts and then let them float away like with the current of the river
Let the thoughts flow like a river. Let me be steady, like a rock.
I must remember that I am not my thoughts or my feelings. They are their own separate entity. My authentic self is the sturdy rock in the river of my life.
When the River flows threw your body as it did mine it did awaken my body, I feel light,fresh and strong! I'm Awakening and feel Calm!
I learned that as anxiety goes through me, to anazlyze if it’s worth worrying about. If not, let it go just like a river. It’s not worth the time to be stressing
Not to be overwhelmed by emotions & to let them go& don’t allow them to obtrusive
Let it flow
I learned to let emotions flow through me without holding onto them
