May 7

Thank you for joining us for A Month of Meditation!

Welcome to Day 7!

(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 been trying to get in two session a day. One in the afternoon, and afterwards I do some free writing, then last thing at night. Sometimes I write afterwards, other times I just contemplate my storyline and let myself fall asleep. I fall asleep easily (a couple of weeks ago I nodded off while the dentist was drilling in my tooth).

    This has been great for me. I had a stressful night during the week when I realised the story I was working on just wasn’t going to work. After meditating I calmed down enough to see more options.

    Last week I used The Natural Born Writer, this week I’m going to use Maggie Dubris’ Engaged Writing audiobook.

    Thanks for the calm!

  2. Chanted this morning. I too find that journaling after is incredibly beneficial to me. I am currently working through the Journaling Within book. It challenges me and makes me smile–I truly do feel like I am connecting more with myself.

  3. Another beautiful, yet chilly morning. Morning meditations are becoming 2nd nature, which is good for me. It is definitely the way to start any day of joy and mindful living. It puts the life purpose right front and center spiritually. Last night I worked on my book, and dissertation possibilities. The subliminal work I am including with this 30 day meditation/habit-forming/journey has lowered my stress, and opened my thought possibilities. The fear of completing all my tasks in the next few years is slipping quietly away and is being replaced with the confidence of “knowing!”

  4. Day 7 – Woke up at 3 in the morning and couldn´t sleep, instead of uncounciously getting lost on all kinds of thoughts that appear when this happens,I began to meditate putting my attention to breathing and into the feeling the inner body while lying down. Meditating helps me cope with insomnia, so feeling sleepless is a great opportunity to rest from the thinking mind. At 5 a.m I stood up not feeling so restless.

  5. It seems the bath is my favorite place to meditate. There is something about the privacy and warm water that releases tension and allows me to find my place with Spirit. I just finished my meditation and I actually feel like I want more. The noise has quieted and I’m beginning to feel centered again. I’m so grateful for this month and Jodi for suggesting this exercise. TY <3

  7. About to do a guided meditation before bed…posting beforehand because I think it will put me to sleep. Good night!

  8. I set the timer and sat for 5 minutes just now. As I breathed in, I said in my head, “in,” and as I breathed out, I said, “out.” There were a few breaths without thoughts in between, which was nice. That is a first. I’m hoping for more like that. :)

    Happy first week, everyone!

  9. Monday 7th May Meditation
    After a very busy weekend when I found it impossible to meditate (I’ve never believed people before when they say they just couldn’t find the time and it worked out to be true for me this weekend). It’s now a bank holiday so we are still not back in to a routine but I was determined not to miss a third day.
    I managed 14 minutes of mediation so I’m getting stronger in my meditations.
    I managed to quickly clear my mind and the first thing that popped in to my head was a huge grey elephant. One day I will find somebody who will be able to reference my animal images and if they have any meanings, I’m sure they must do otherwise why?
    Came out of the meditation naturally and felt clear headed.

    • That’s interesting that an elephant came to mind. Whenever an animal pops into my head or in my dreams, I start by asking myself what they could represent to me.
      I’m glad you found some time to meditate and that you’re sticking to it. That’s really all that matters – so much more than the time you meditate is just taking even a minute or two to be present and still each day.
      You may be meditating and just not know it, too. As you’re washing dishes when you’re completely focused on the task, or when you’re exercising and immersed in the movement of it. These are both forms of meditation, too.
      Glad you’re here and sticking with it! :)
