If I could share all the meaningful stories with you from people who tell me how meditation and mindfulness is impacting their lives, I would! Here are the top 3 for this month:
#1. From a lawyer:
I started a mindfulness program a few months ago and it’s opened up a new world for me. I can handle the stress of my job much better. I wish all lawyers would take up this practice!
#2. From an actuary:
I meditate 15 minutes per day now and it really makes a big difference in my life. I’ve started to teach my 7 year old daughter a simple breath meditation to settle her down when she’s hyper and can’t sleep. It’s working great.
#3. From a student in my meditation class:
I’m starting to notice that when I’m meditating, it’s almost like I’m observing myself meditate. When I do the ‘Letting Go’ meditation, I am seeing the tension of the emotion release through my breath. There is a calmness that comes with observing myself. How interesting!
I remind my students that every meditation session is unique, so it’s best not to have any expectations of your practice. As you cultivate a meditation practice, observe yourself, and you may start to notice changes in your experience.
Have a lovely day,
