    Observing the breath, as many already mentioned, as it immedeately brings back to the moment, where feelings related to a story of the past or a telling of a future melt to just be there.

    My meditation is usually walking so I try to walk, may listen to some calming Celtic music to get my mind off things. I was feeling a little anxious a little while ago and took a shower and decided to come on to this site. I loved everyone’s responses today! Going to see the Brady movie tonight so a bit of laughing may help too!

    When uncertainty hits me…all I know how to do us pray. Sometimes it helps…but sometimes I get frentetic about it. So, I have learned a few things here today… Stop, Look, Go. Be aware of your breath….take three deep breaths… Give Time…Time…ALL so helpful…In the future prayer will always come along with these other techniques…Thank you!

    Stop, look go.
    Name 5 things I see
    Name 4 things I feel
    Name 3 things I hear
    Name 2 things I smell
    Name 1 thing I taste

    I come back to the breath.
    It gives me a feeling of control.
    I also try to be “in the moment”
    and remind myself that I am safe
    and it’s okay to let go a bit and
    just see what happens.

    Be still. Breathe. Breathe again, remembering to exhale. Take stock of the situation and consider other similar situations I have been in. Give myself time needed for decision making and/or action.

    Uncertainty usually feels challenging to me when I equate it with negative outcomes. So, I first remind myself that uncertainty holds any array of outcomes, not just negative. Second, I try not to force a resolution on a situation just to eliminate the uncertainty. Things usually turn out best for all when the resolution is allowed to arise naturally in its own time.

    Getting away to a private space, closing my eyes and focusing on my breathe.i usuallly start with taking 3 deep breathes holding and breathing out aggressively.. I find that this « resets «  my thoughts and sets me up. Better to focus on my breathing.

    I’ve come to know it’s best to “pause when agitated,” breath, and seek direction from a Divine Source. Clarity does come, I may also seek help from others. They too are a reflection of God in my life.

    Take the bull by the horns was my usual method. As I have aged that is not always an appropriate method. Step back, take a breath and look for capabilities. If it the uncertainty is unpleasant remember RAIN. Recognize, Allow, Investigate, Nurture. All things pass eventually. I heard a fellow a couple of days ago attribute this to Mark Twain…….If your job is to eat a frog, best to eat it in the morning. If your job is to eat two frogs, best to eat the larger one first.

      I love the quote. When I ran my own retail
      business, I would always try to tackle the
      most unpleasant and difficult tasks
      first thing in the morning. This would help
      make the rest of the day and the other
      things on my endless to-do list seem easier.
      It’s funny, Mark Twain was so clever,
      that now we just attribute any
      cleverness to him.
      He would have loved this fact.
