The Journey Within: A Meditation Practice Day 3

The Journey Within: A Meditation Practice Day 3

This morning I felt so energized! I had made a commitment to attend a 75-minute hot yoga practice at a nearby yoga studio! I had experienced hot yoga a few years back as well as a zen variation of 60 minute hot yoga at the studio last night. 

This morning’s yoga flow was super-charged, full of energy and empowerment! A fun learning experience indeed!

Arriving home from the yoga practice and running a quick errand, I knew in my heart my body needed rest and some TLC (including lots of water). Listening to my body, I took a rest and made my way to a comfortable spot – allowing myself to fall into a zen meditation.

Without any expectations, I simply dialed my awareness towards my breath. Letting go of any residual tension, I felt the muscles in my body relax further into the coziness I created.

I slipped into this cocoon of stillness as a wave of rejuvenation and love washed over me. Feeling so peaceful, I melted into this enticing state of being.

With each breath I took, I felt my energy find a renewed sense of balance. I heard a clear message advising me that it was wise to slow down. In my mind’s eye, I saw a beautiful sprouting flower garden – full of vibrant colors! 

I felt in my heart this was a message of growth, new beginnings, and revitalization. During this moment, I felt my energy radiate as bright as the sun’s rays on a hot summer day.

This was my cue that balance had been restored and that I was ready to continue exploring this beautiful day.

Batting my eyelashes open, I lifted the corners of my mouth into a smile and made my way into a full body stretch (because why not?). 

Feeling good, I hugged both knees into my chest, gently rocked up into a comfortable seat and rolled into the next part of my day – enjoying my nice and warm herbal tea (and taking Stella for a walk).

I’m so grateful for this time I carved out for myself to tune in and really listen to what is needed on all levels.

From my heart to yours, I thank you for coming along this journey with me.

Until next time, peace be with you.
