My first card from the Inspiration Deck is for the mind and what do you know it’s the Day One: mind card
Well the universe is certainly guiding me wont you agree!?!
I have been wanting to incorporate daily meditation into my routine since long and now it begins with this journey.
I have hunted out some quite and pleasing music and also downloaded a meditation app in which one can schedule time, duration,music ,etc for some quiet time or there are tonnes of guided meditation to choose from too. It’s a damn neat app. I have worked a routine of 10 mts duration with 3 bells at 3 minutes intervals and some soothing music to appease my mind.
The easiest thing to do to mediate is to watch ones breath. I have a hyperactive mind where thoughts keep swirling. So I have worked out a cheat; If a thought comes, i imagine it being tied to a helium gas-filled balloon and then I release it. I stand below watching it soar higher towards the blue skies. Almost every time the first balloon is red followed by pink and then yellow…. And then I am back to watching my breathe. It’s works most of the time and helps me calm down.
Do you meditate? Whats your favourite way to do so?
I started with the 10 minute meditation via the app; held two of my crystals in each hand and just watched my breath and when the mind wandered, I let it. It’s the quickest ten minutes of my life and I am amazed at the deep sleep I had at night post it. Yeah I had done this at the end of the day as I feel at that time the world is very quiet and no door bells or phone rings at that hour!
I think this was one of the best things I did for myself and I cant wait to meditate again!
Please do see the lovely picture and quote at the back of the card which again reinforced the need to have a practice of daily mediation for me. What do you think about this quote, I wonder?
