A release of tension.
I hear “thank you” coming from deep down inside. Thank you for this question, dear gratefulness team.
Deep feeling of peace and gratitude.
Pure gratitude for being alive.
It is a part of the daily ritual, 20 minutes … on the inhale … “I am not this body”. On the exhale … “I am not even this mind”. With practice it creates a little space between mind and body. The third element then becomes apparent.
I notice how calm & centered I feel. A peacefulness washes over me.
I notice that everything else around me stops to matter and some still quiet peace at that moment.
I notice my shoulders relax and my thoughts slow down….
It’s grounding. I need this practice ahead of an awkward and likely conflicted encounter today.
Nothing deep or philosophical but do feel my blood pressure go down which always makes me feel better.
That I need do that more often throughout the day.
I relax into myself….i connect with my soul, and any anxiety leaves, any thought of the future evaporates. The past is just a memory that can stay there-in the past.
It has been a “too busy” time for me, and this came just at the right moment. Thank you! I needed a “reset”….I am going to go meditate now….enjoy your time in this moment. In this day. This weekend.
Just did this exercise. Noticed that my mind became still for those moments….
It is still early morning. I see the sun shining through the yellow leaves of the magnolia tree outside my window. They are dropping slowly, a few at a time, like a slow rain, after the frost we had last night. Very gentle.
And now I remember the lovely online memorial we had for Meredith last night, where all present had the chance to share a memory of her. It was gentle, humorous and loving sharing. Like these leaves falling. Usually the fall makes me feel sad and melancholy. But it feels hopeful somehow too, just now. And beautiful in their falling and passing.
Feeling and hearing the Heart Beat (aka The Pulse of Life) , and thanking the Holy Spirit that it is so. It sounds out the vibrations “I Love You….You are mine…..I Love You …You are mine”, all day and night.
I notice how much more relaxed I feel. Life feels a little bit easier. I do this conscious breathing before every meditation and whenever I notice I am “tightening up”.
