This week’s mini meditation is inspired by… YOU! Well, one of you. I got the nicest email from one of you listeners telling me about the happy struggle to meditate while on a vacation in a beautiful location. As I enjoy my own vacation by the ocean, I, too, felt the pull to enjoy the view, and happily, this is actually a traditional form of meditation. You can keep your eyes open! Some people will find they respond much better to this style, while others will find it to be a little more difficult… Either way, go sit outside today, if you can, and enjoy the chance to experience your meditation practice with your eyes open. The present moment with a view!

These mini meditations are meant to support a daily home practice. Tune in every Monday to find your practice for the week! Full episodes are released every Thursday for a longer, deeper practice.

Beach Relaxation

September 26, 2019

Oh y’all… I am on vacation this week and enjoying a week of beach time. This week’s meditation is an extra special, beach-side meditation, and it’s a little different than my normal offering. If you listen to The Mindful Minute often, you know that I am a devoted practitioner of mindfulness meditation. The practice of being present, without judgment and with compassion. The downside of this type of practice is that you don’t get a guarantee of feeling good during meditation. If you are feeling super stressed or sad, you’ll feel ALL of that stress or sadness during your practice…. It is fabulous in the long-term, but in the short-term it can be tough.

While on vacation, sometimes I just want a little extra goodness… to feel relaxed. And today’s meditation is that little bit extra to help us relax. This practice is great for days when you are feeling overwhelmed, too many thoughts in your head, or just wanting an extra sweet practice.

Enjoy!

The way we speak to ourselves directly informs how we speak to others. Our meditation practice is a gentle way to discover how we are talking to ourselves AND it gives us the gift of choice. Join me today for this brief meditation as we start to imbue our self-talk with kindness.

This month’s meditation series is all about taking your meditation practice deeper. One of the facets of a deepening meditation practice is known as Right Speech. The teachings around Right Speech offer us guidance for speaking in a way that gives rise to peace and happiness within oneself and others. It is a practice of speaking deep, kind truth. And, perhaps most importantly, it is a practice that begins within Self. 

Yep, the way we talk to ourselves DIRECTLY impacts how we speak to others. The heart sets the tone for our speech, and our meditation practice allows us to notice and evolve the tone of our heart. This practice commits us to a greater awareness of body, mind and emotions. It makes it possible to recognize what we are going to say as we prepare to say it – and it gives us the gift of choice.

Ready to explore Right Speech for yourself? Tune into The Mindful Minute today for a discussion about speech and a 20-minute guided meditation practice.

Alfred Brendel tells us “The word listen contains the same letters as the word silent.”

If you want to take your meditation practice deeper, you must first become comfortable with silence. In this week’s mini meditation, we practice cultivating the skill of deep listening within our meditation practice. We will create a space that is free of agitation, distraction, and reaction. And, if you choose to grab a journal, I’m also sharing one of my favorite ways to hone the skill of deep listening.

This month’s meditation series is all about taking your meditation practice deeper. As we dive into a meditation practice, one of the common quandaries we run into is what do we DO with the practice as it starts to affect us? As we begin to quiet down and listen more, how do we work with all that we discover? When and where does change happen?

Well, this deepening starts with a practice of deep listening.

Alfred Brendel tells us “The word listen contains the same letters as the word silent.”

If you want to take your meditation practice deeper, you must first become comfortable with silence.

Our minds offer us the most incredible gift; they are simultaneously able to “do” and to “witness”. This means it is possible to think a thought AND to notice that thought at the same time. This ability to witness our innermost thoughts, this is deep listening.

For us to be able to hear our thoughts, we must cultivate a space that is absent of agitation, distraction and, most importantly, reaction. If we pull the judgment card, we are effectively silencing the words we most need to hear.

Read to listen? Tune into today’s episode of The Mindful Minute for a  talk and 20-minute meditation practice. Be sure to grab a notebook or journal as you settle in, I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to build the skill of deep listening at the end of today’s episode!
