TRYING MEDITATION

Tuesday, March 07, 2017

I have struggled with my thoughts for perhaps a life time. Beating my self up verbally in my head, what I should do and what I shouldn't be doing. Also my never ending list of just to do's - it is a bit overwhelming.

During a prayer time I was praying that if I could get rid of all of these thoughts life might not be so difficult. Funny then, I kept reading or hearing about people meditating and did a bit of research about how it is to control your thoughts instead of your thoughts control you.

I have only started my third month of practicing mediation and it is only about 20 minutes a day BUT.... I have noticed that during the rest of the day I am able to let go of negative thoughts faster. Also do not seem to get overwhelmed with stuff to do (though it is the same stuff). Lastly, shockingly I do not find myself arguing with my self or husband. It is this weird outside looking in view but I am seeing so good things.

So I will continue my 20 minutes and see if I can increase that a couple of times a week.

    Sounds like a great plan. It's funny how emptying your mind helps you the rest of the day. Meditation is a great tool, just need time to focus. Keep it up.

    Meditation does help! I've noticed if I meditate / do my affirmations consistently for a while, it makes me "catch myself" when I have a negative thought, and I can immediately replace it with a positive one. emoticon

    Yes, meditation helps me keep things in perspective, let go of the small stuff 'cause it's all small stuff & focus on my needs instead of my wants.
