I went through my meditation workshop with some friends today. I wanted to see how it went and also make sure it flowed well. I am so excited to share with others my love of meditation. It has been one of the best things I have done for myself over the last year. Even before Hamish was born, I would take out to sit in silence and breathe and it made me so much more present in my days. Meditation has helped bring me back to the present moment over and over again. In the days where I worry about the future or the ones where I am focussed on the past. It takes me into my body and brings me here to the now. I think I would have so much more anxiety if I didn’t meditate. It isn’t always easy but I keep showing up each day and giving it a go. I have an app called insight timer which I really love. I use it to time my silent meditations. It helps me stay on track and keep up my daily practice. Some days I find it very hard to concentrate. Others it is much easier. Just like writing it is something I am making a non-negotiable in each day.
I feel closer to you during my meditations. Maybe I can feel your presence more or just have a knowing that you are guiding me.
