    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.

    • Vanessa Loder says:

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

  • Reny says:

    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.

    • Vanessa Loder says:

      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–

  • L says:

    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.

    • Vanessa Loder says:

      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!

  • As i am growing,my schedule is getting very busy day after day,you made me believe to calm down even in busy situation.

  • zaneta garratt says:

    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

  • Maura says:

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

  • zaneta garratt says:

    very nice-good advise

  • Karen Rowe says:

    I felt like I was awakening from a refreshing nap! Thank you for the opportunity to experience peacefulness in the middle of chaos-

  • Marilyn says:

    This was timely in my current situation. Thank you, staying in the moment has facilitated coping with many life stressors.

    • Vanessa Loder says:

      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.

  • Linda says:

    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.

    • Vanessa Loder says:

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