Day 165

I feel good today, like I know that everything is going to be ok. I fall into a deep meditative state and take some long breaths in and out. Since completing the meditation teacher training I have committed to meditating 20 minutes a day in silence. Some days are easier than others. I find myself getting distracted easily when I’m at home. I feel the benefits as each day I am calm. I don’t get stressed anymore like I used to. Yes, I still have a bit of anxiety sometimes but only occasionally. Life flows easier. I don’t sweat the small stuff. Meditation has allowed me to slow down my thoughts and create. It helps me tap into my creativity. It helps me bring things to life. It also helps me to make decisions. I can meditate and then something will just come to me after. It’s Greg’s birthday on the weekend. I was hoping in today’s meditation something would come to me for it.

I decided I want to put together some guided meditations. One that I am starting with is for mother’s that have lost a child. I have recorded it and it is below. I want to start recording more and doing in person meditations in the coming weeks. When you are just getting started with meditation having a guided one can really help you become more mindful. It can also be a powerful tool to focus on letting go, cultivating gratitude, generating more love and happiness in your life. Meditating is just one tool that has helped me in the past few months become more present in my life. I am no longer hooked to keeping up to date on social media or my emails. I realise now it’s ok to take time out for myself. It’s ok not to be available 24/7.

Here is the meditation I created today for Angel Mothers:

Hamish thank you for giving me the strength to create gifts like these for the world.
