Mindfulness is all about feeling and sitting with the emotions and thoughts that come up moment to moment.
Feeling uneasy may not be your idea of fun yet if we can learn to sit with unease it can teach us...
Please watch the video below and listen to the words.
I record all of my meditations in the moment and it is not rehearsed in any way. This way it is more authentic and true, in the moment.
Touch is something most people don't think about all that often yet it is vital for our wellbeing.
To connect with this sense of touch (holding hands with your partner, holding your child, feeling the softness of your bedcovers on your body, feeling water caress your skin in the shower or bath and simply holding an object such as a pen, feeling the weight of it in your hand and being mindful of that moment), is to connect with life itself.
Yet we are so busy rushing through our lives that we forget just how vital touch is.
Your whole day can be changed simply by noticing this sense of touch.
This week's mindful meditation is all about touch so for this you will need 3 objects. I usually give my clients a pen, a squashy ball (like those stress balls) and a coin.
So have these or something similar handy and listen to this week's meditation on TOUCH.
These posts have been a bit late these days. That's because I am in the U.K and now my New Zealand's Monday is my Tuesday and I keep forgetting to post. Plus I have been busy busy with family...all fun things but just full on.
So today's video is taken from Gullane Beach on the East Coast, which is where near where my parent's live.
Whilst my niece and nephew played behind me building me a sand tunnel, I stood and filmed the silence around me.
All I could hear was a little wind, the waves and birds....Bliss.
I wanted to share this with you.
Watch and repeat <3
I was recently in the Isle of Cumbrae in a little place called Millport.
I took this video one quiet morning around 7am just prior to doing some yoga on the beachfront.
It was so relaxing and all I could hear where the birds calling as they flew.
Take a break and relax to watch this soothing scenery xx
I am on vacation in Scotland at the moment and took this beautiful video the other day in a place called Aviemore in the Highlands of this beautiful country.
It was so quiet and I loved the sound the water made in this space. It was a warm day but the sun hadn't yet made an appearance.
It is shining daily at the moment so fingers crossed the rest of my trip it remains...
This week please aim to become present during just one moment of your day. This may be making your morning cup of coffee, having your shower, walking to work, eating your breakfast, talking to your family or colleagues or during a meeting.
AIm to pick one moment for each day of this coming week and remind yourself to be present to each moment unfolding.
Meaning, notice things you may not have noticed before. Look for reactions on people's faces or the way you stir your coffee-clockwise or counter clockwise. Aim to not be going forward into your day or backwards into the past....simply remain in the moment.
Try it this week :)
Be open in the moment.
