                • The Mini Meditation


                  from Peter Shmock Added 37 0 0

                  We all have minds that are busy with a myriad of thoughts. So many things to do, so many things to think about. At times we feel stressed out by these thoughts as if we're getting bombarded endlessly. But there's good news - there's a practical and easy way to escape these thoughts, become calmer, less stressed and feel a moment of piece. This meditation - called the mini meditation - was taught to me by one of the most profound teachers I had the pleasure of learning from - Ken Russell. This meditation takes only a few moments during your day. Sit in your chair or if possible lay down somewhere relatively quiet... if this is possible. If not , no problem, you can do this anywhere anytime. First shut your eyes, if you can, and then take three long full breathes putting your full attention on the physical sensation of breathing. Breath thru your nose if you can as it's more calming to your mind and body. You can focus on the air going in and out nostrils or your chest as it lifts up and goes back down with each breath. The only thing that matters is that you put your full attention on each of the three breaths. If you get distracted by thoughts - no problem - just bring your attention back to your breath. If you have a luxury of sitting or laying down for a few moments afterwards - great - indulge yourself and sink into the piece that you may experience. Like everything it's a practice and it will become easier in time. But remember this - even if your subjective experience is that you weren't able to keep you focus dead thru all three breaths , you will non the less benefit. Don't stress about it. Once a day is a good start, multiple times is even better. Think of this meditation as being what Ken called a wedge that serves to distance you momentarily from your busy mind and it's thought. Be calmer, be clearer of mind and feel less stressed - all by taking just three breaths. It has profound affects. oh yeah - almost forgot. If you're like me remembering to remember may be the biggest hurdle in doing this. My suggestion is to set an alarm on your smartphone to help you remember. Hope that helps. Let me know how it goes for you! And take good care of yourselves. You're the best person to do it!
