Weathering Storms
In days when I get caught up in the whirlwind of tumultuous emotions of anger, frustration, grief, confusion, like in this meditation, I place myself in the midst of a body of water, say a lake. In stormy weather, I face rough waters and thus sense the need to anchor myself to regain my bearings. Nature is the teacher, as all storms must pass, and the lake comes back to its placid self. The anchor comprises acceptance, compassion and release. Only then will I find peace. ☮️💕⚓️

I feel caught up in a storm right now, but I now feel anchored and calm in the storm and can let it pass over me without try to outrun it. I breathe in forgiveness and compassion for myself and exhale hurt and past grievances.

I like the phrase - "... you can weather any storm. " It's both encouragement and reminder of our inner strength

Ready for what’s next and very relaxed. I wanted my son to do this meditation since he didn’t I listened to it with my daughter. We both felt relaxed and calm.

Anchor
It was a nice reminder that I have indeed survived storms in the past, therefore I can survive my current and/or future storms.

I can weather the emotional storms that come my way. I just need to calm down and let it pass.

Breathing
I breathe too shallow and need to be mindful of this. Deeper breathing calms me down

Radical acceptance combined with self compassion and self-nurturing is a powerful combination. I am reminded where my supports lie and what my anchor is.
