May 4

Thank you for joining us for A Month of Meditation!

Welcome to Day 4!

(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. Hi all, Yesterday’s meditation was so relaxing I almost fell asleep…today my mind was a bit more active. But, no matter what the outcome, it is wonderful to take a few minutes to focus and be present. Peace…

  2. Managed a few minutes meditation at various occaisions through the day – when mopping the floor, I focussed on the task instead of rushing it. When I took the dog for a walk, I listened to the sounds around me, mostly the wind and the birds singing, was totally in the moment though. Yes, it is giving me lot of pleasure and helping my mood. I am off to eat some cakes I made, I will do an eating meditation on that!

  3. I meditated today 1 hour from 4:45 and then tried to keep “aware of my awareness” of the present moment during work. Business situation these days makes it harder to keep present and in peace so I’ll let hard circunstance teach , is a test that i´m willing to take.

  4. I just set the meditation timer for 5 minutes and sat with my eyes closed and focused on relaxing and taking full breaths. I am really resisting this, but I’m hoping that as I create a habit, it will get easier for me. I still have that pull that says I’m too busy and don’t have time for this. But I’m going to continue to show up each day because my soul is asking me to.

  5. This morning I did the same self directed meditation that I did last night but it didn’t help me as much as It did last night. I was able to let outside thoughts enter my mind much more easily than I was last night when it was all about the breathing. The knot in my chest did not shrink much this time. Perhaps since it was early and I hadn’t slept well, my mind was not as strong to have ignored the bad thoughts and allowed them in. Hopefully better luck tomorrow. Good night everyone!

  6. Day 4 meditation was an energy clearing meditation guided by Christie Marie Sheldon in one of her webinars. Unfortunately I fell asleep halfway through it, but sleep well I did. So Day 5 will be the same one again. It’s an awesome meditation. I do this one at least twice a week.

  7. Another tub meditation. I find it easy to lose myself in the bath. It was much better than last night’s bedtime attempt…I was sawing wood in no time:) I do want to try the guided meditation. Perhaps tomorrow. This is good for me. It helps me to center.

  8. 4th May Meditation
    Last night slept for seven hours unbroken sleep but woke half an hour before the alarm was due to go off.
    I tried something slightly different today and lit a smelly candle in the room.
    I felt my whole body relax and various aspects of the day flitted in and out of my mind.
    Then I felt as if something was rolling all my worries up and rolling them over and over in cotton wool and pushing them far, far away.
    Came out of the meditation naturally.

  9. Yesterday I did meditate for a long time, but was unable to post until today. I am keeping to my routine of focusing on my goals and journaling before or after my meditation. My focus is getting better. Lately I am meditating in the morning, which keeps me from missing out on it. I’m glad to be on day 5, I cannot wait to see how the month finally manifests from the meditations.

  10. Hi Jodi,
    I’ve been busy these past few days so I wasn’t able to pop on here and comment BUT I did meditate everyday so far. I used to make a practice of meditating, years ago, but let it slide away. (Why do we let that happen to things that are good for us?)
    I’m loving the guided meditations. I think they are perfect for beginning meditators. It’s so hard to be present when your not used to it and these are gentle beginning step to that whole process.
    I look forward to them each day.
    Night time is working better for me, right before bed. I tried one morning and my cats were awful! LOL I haven’t bothered in the morning since.

    • Hi Kel,
      Thank you for sharing your week with us! Congrats for sticking with it and meditating each day!
      I really love the guided meditations, too. I went one day this week on my own for 5 minutes, and it just wasn’t as peaceful. So I’ll keep with the guided ones for awhile. I always feel so much calmer and more relaxed after I listen to them. :)
