Today was hectic. Like amazingly on the move, not home but for 10 minutes between 8:30 am and 11 pm hectic. I loved every moment because I was helping friends live their dreams and catching up. However, I was anxious because other than my daily mindfulness, which I love, I did not have any meditation time until almost 11:30 pm. Even on the craziest days I am able to get 5 minutes here and there of focused meditation. Well when I finally was able to log in and listen to today's topic I was super excited! The focus continues on concentration and the method of meditation today was hearing meditation. Where have I been that I have not been using this?!? I mean I was able to get to a state of relaxation and calm in record time with little to no effort. When I say relaxation, I mean RELAXATION. Generally it takes me at least 10 minutes not to feel most tension in my body but not this time! My goodness it was amazing and I will absolutely be using this DAILY.
You can view my short summary of my #RealHappiness experience today on Sharon’s blog here: So excited!
There were several posts by participants that I related to today. When Life Happens All At Once by Sarah was like we were experiencing the same day in a different space. I needed to meditate earlier in the day, but I felt that I lacked the time. She captured so perfectly how meditation enhances what you need so time must be made.
Another Sarah reflected exactly how I felt when I started meditating regularly a little less than a year ago in Didn't Realize How Poor My Concentration Had Gotten. I wish her nothing but joy.
I also connected to Mike as I could hear my heartbeat also as he described in Hearing everything and nothing. Normally I try to tune it out by focusing on my breath, which is not an easy thing to do, but today I allowed my self to follow the sound without reacting, just noticing and in less breaths than I could count I could no longer hear it!
