What's your reason for meditating?
Today, I meditated as a way to transition between one type of activity and another. I wouldn't say it was to clear my head, but to be present in being me --rather than in doing stuff. A sort of palate cleanser between doings, if you will.
Different days, different years have different reasons. Maybe ask yourself: Why do you meditate? Why are you choosing to practice today?
Listen to "Ep 500 - Your reason for meditating + Sat Yam" on Spreaker.
What’s in this episode of Everyday Meditation?
- Welcome + getting situated, with an invitation to consider "what's your reason for meditating?"
- A little lead-in movement: Seated Cat/Cow
- Breathing practice: Padadirsasana (hands under opposite armpits --I don't think it feels as weird as it might sound!)
- Meditation technique (awareness kriya): Sat Yam
- A little re-grounding movement: Seated forward fold
As always, I encourage you to make yourself at home in this practice: substitute, modify, do as you need to feel safe and present, including taking breaks!
After listening to the episode, perhaps check in: did you notice something that you want to carry with you? If yes, maybe jot it down in a notebook or record a voice memo to help you remember!
You can give it a try when you're ready
Be moving, be true, be you
