    This was great today! Before you mentioned about the good coming in your body and being a certain color or colors i was already imagining it a color! As well as with exhaling and letting out the bad and the worries I imagined it a certain color as well. Im only on day 4 but so far this has all helped me out so much. Cant wait for the next days!

    I listened to the fireside chat this afternoon and loved it. Your personal examples of getting caught in the worry cycle really resonated with me, and I really appreciate your sharing your imperfect self with us in these talks because it makes achieving a better self seem more attainable. When I find myself caught in the worry cycle, especially as I’m winding down the day, I make a list, fast and furious, to try to catch all those stray “must’s” and “should’s” that bombard me while I clear up my workspace — it’s a way of clearing my mind so that the “to do’s” don’t ruin my sleep. I made such a list tonight before heading upstairs to do my meditation, and I found it was the most successful meditation session in terms of focusing on my breathing and letting everything be as it was.

      Lists can be very helpful to clear the mind clutter Linda! Thank you for sharing your experience and wisdom with this!

    Great content! It’s usually not worry but something negative somebody said or did that makes me ruminating over and over about. Like somebody cutting me off in a meeting or making a comment about my parking abilities and being inconsiderate when I parked. Those are really hard to let go for years sometimes.

      Oooo yes, I can understand this. Send those people much loving kindness and know they are in their own perfect journey as well. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    Although I have already completed this meditation, it has come up as new on my computer for the last three days–think the universe is telling me something? Yes–I’m a worrier–but much better than I used to be–that is –I’m much calmer than I used to be. This meditation was a message to continue to just watch those worrisome thoughts as they go by–giving them a little love and then a kind bye bye–

    The breath is very like what we do in tai chi, with tongue against roof of mouth on inhale through nose and exhale through barely open mouth. I find all the breathing exercises helpful. I usually drop off to sleep and if not, I have some strategies I’ve developed. Occasionally they don’t work for some while, and I’m eager to try the breath technique you led us through.

      That is interesting L that they are so similar! Perfectly fine to drop off to sleep if that’s what your body requires at that moment. I would love to hear how this breath technique works for you!

    the meditation and worry cycle talks are very positive-I realize and say to myself-oh no, my monkey mind is at it again and I too try to think of something else

    Hmm…worrying disguised as planning. I resemble that remark. LOL. That’s a great way to think about it and will help me reframe.

      Haha Maura! So glad that part resignated with you and will now help you think in a new light!

      That is always my favorite thing to hear, that a meditation spoke to you when you needed it the most. I’m grateful it has assisted you in this moment.

    I’m grateful to learn that I can retrain my mind by inhaling a calm and peaceful energy and exhaling stress and worry. Visualizing or seeing the color of each makes it easier. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

      Absolutely you can retrain it thru this practice! And the color is a great assistance in the visualization. Thank you for sharing!
