Are there any thoughts or emotions you’re struggling with these days? Where might they be coming from?
The Meditative Moment
Give yourself a five-minute lie-down today. On the couch, your bed, or the floor. Use whatever props you find helpful: a pillow under your head, another under your knees to support your low back; a blanket; socks; a fan. If it’s not too shabby outside, maybe rest in the yard or on the patio. Look at the sky, or imagine yourself gazing up at the clouds. As they go by, consider that they carry your troubling emotions away from you. Send what bothers you up toward those fluffy clouds, giving it a soft place to land, and allowing it to go. Truth to tell, these thoughts or feelings might fall right back down to earth, but perhaps you’ll find some that you are really ready to release.
