Ooh, I meditated twice today. Generally speaking that’s supposed to be standard practice but I don’t always do it. I have gotten much benefit from a once daily practice. Having said that I do pretty regularly meditate more than once a day. Well, I liked today’s meditation so much this morning I decided to do it again when I got home, using the same guided meditation from today’s challenge. Honestly, I think I would be darn near psychic if I practiced meditation twice a day everyday. Hmm reason for me to step up my game!
You want stress relief? I always thought the best way to get relief from stress was to be physically active. Shake it off. Go for a run. Take a walk, so that’s what I did and afterwards I’d enjoy a nice hot shower and it worked to a degree. But, there was always an underlying restlessness that stayed with me. I only recognize this in hindsight. Physical activity does relieve the superficial layers of restlessness but the feeling persisted that there was something more, an agitation I didn’t reach. I don’t think I’m alone in that sentiment. Since I started meditating I have experienced more relief from that restlessness and yet I know there’s more. Meditation is an attempt to go deeper into a part of ourselves we don’t access easily. It is a practice worth undertaking. I continue because I know I can go deeper and I look forward to getting there. I might discover some genius.
