Day 18 - Meditation
All You need is Love! Welcome to Day 18!
There are times when we run into upset and hurt. Maybe it's miscommunication, misunderstanding, or just outright craziness. If we hold onto that pain it will destroy and hurt us. We can't change situations and events. Life happens. What we do have power over is ourselves. We can change how we respond to a situation. Notice I said respond, not react. A response has thought behind it. Reactions are knee jerk effects to cause. The ultimate path to healing is to cultivate the garden of our heart. It's not our job to change the other person, what they think, or the situation. What other people think, is none of our business. :)
Focus on yourself. Find love and discover your peace. This meditation will show you how to do it.
So join me for this Loving Kindness (Metta) meditation. I'll see you on the mat.
Plan for about 8 minutes with today's meditation practice. Grab a seat!
Once we complete our 21 day journey together I will leave up the pages and videos for an extra week. Then on May 8th they all will be coming down. If you've missed a practice, or 2, or 3 :) sneak them in on the weekends, or the extra week we'll have. Because they'll be going away May 8th. The next challenge will be in July. So mark your calendars! It will be great to take with you on vacation!
Let's play "The I love game."
TELL me 3 things you LOVE... and go!
Let me know what you LOVE in the form below or a comment on Facebook. :)
The intention for this 21 Day Challenge series is to do something everyday Monday - Friday. We are focusing on doing the basics at home and getting into a rhythm. Pace and modify according to you needs. I will always give you options. Remember you know yourself best, listen to your instincts.
