Thank you for joining us for A Month of Meditation!

Welcome to Day 13!

(If you haven’t read what it’s all about, please click here first.)

 

 

I’m so proud of all of us for showing up for ourselves. For knowing that our soul craves this moment of stillness in our day, and for taking action to make that happen. So let’s all pat ourselves on the back for that!

Each day, we’ll click on that Day’s page, and we’ll leave a comment stating that we meditated on that day. That’s all!

If you would like to write more, that’s definitely welcome. It would be really great if we could share about our experiences, too: how we meditated, how long we meditated for, and what the experience was like for us.

Many of us will be using the Re-Awakening Guided Meditation Program, so we can share our experience with that as well.

I’m so excited to get started!

Being a part of a supportive community is half of the fun, so please be sure to check in daily.

Now…let’s go meditate!

P.S. – Please remember to post the artwork on your blogs and share it on FB and Twitter! You can find sample tweets here.

  1. I’ve always struggled with free writing – feeing very uninspired writing without a plan for the topic, but since I’ve been meditating I’m finding my mind does wander easily to new places in my writing.
    It’s been great for pushing all the other clutter out of the way and just focusing on the creative. Like a spring clean :)
    I haven’t tried sitting still to meditate, I’ve always been a fidgeter, I usually lie down, but I might try it now, maybe I’m learning to calm.

  2. Sorry as I haven’t report these last 2 days. I’ve been a little discourage and caught up with thoughts, negative thoughts. Eckhat Tolle says meditation is not something you do, but rather being who you really are. In that sense it helps to sit and meditate a while, but it is important to maintain a state of awareness during all the day. Aware of your thoughts and emotions, and of You as the conscious space in which they happen. Acceptance of the present moment and the emotions you are having is the spiritual practice that should lead you to enlightened. peace. The purpose of our suffering is to awake to that reality, your true self. Although I know and realize this, it is very hard when a sombre mood comes to me. Very hard. It helped me to read Baghavad Gita, as we need to be warriors like Arjun, but then, while I’m writing this, the emotion is present again. At least I’m aware of it….

    • Very true that it’s great that you are aware of it, but I’m sorry that you’re feeling so down.
      When I find myself taking everything extra seriously and feeling the weight of it all on my shoulders, I often find that I need to shake everything off and dance around the house or sing or laugh. Sometimes life can start weighing me down, and doing these things can really help my soul.
      And if you aren’t feeling up to dancing around the house – it’s amazing what a simple smile can do. :)
      Glad you’re sticking with it – even with what you’re going through.

  3. Very close to falling asleep so I’m about to do a guided meditation from the
    Reawakening series to get me there in a good way. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there and Happy Birthday Dan!

  4. I sat for 5 minutes just now and meditated. I decided to wait and do the spirit guide meditation tomorrow. Tonight, my thoughts were all over the place – in a good way – lots of exciting ideas coming to mind. I did my best to keep coming back to my breath and did manage to do that a few times. In the past, I would have given up and gotten up. So I’m happy that because I’ve committed to this, I stayed with it. I do feel that I’m creating a habit here. :)

  5. Sunday 13 May 2012
    Oops somehow I seemed to have missed two days.
    Today I managed 11 minutes of meditation.
    I found some quiet time, grandson had gone home, hubby was ensconced on his computer, lunch over, cake made, a little respite before it was time to cook supper.
    Sitting in my office with the hum of the computer and ticking of the clock as focus noises drowning out neighbours’ lawn mowers and children playing in their gardens, traffic noises from the road in the background.
    Started to unwind a little and my mind go blank. Felt a little woozy to begin with and that happened twice so I pulled back a little. Had the image of a white peacock strutting its stuff and a little bit later the colour red and images of red rubies.

  6. Sunday I meditated the shortest time had lots of family activities so hit the day running. It was a nice day and I still meditated in the morning. I enjoyed all the family connections, laughed good laughs and I felt very warm and happy all day despite having to jump back into school work through the night.
