Create Your Path with Wisdom and Thoughtfulness

.

Weaving our way down the paths we choose

Creating the each foot step simultaneously

with placing our toes exactly in pre-made impressions

An illusion that others have as much influence

Over which way we go, as it seems to us at the time

Travelling without taking enough time to just be still

To connect with our soul and our inner wisdom

Controlled by the false beliefs we hold

Influenced by thoughts we don’t even know are driving us

Feelings that come up without our control

Rarely taking the time to find out what we are actually feeling

Underneath the current of what we are supposed to feel

Actually coming from or why they always come up

At certain times. and in certain scenarios

We must stop and just feel the energies about us

Find the strength to go the direction that we really want to go

The way that serves us, supports us

Allows us to spread our own wings

And protects us from harm

Stillness Meditation Calming Technique

💜

This is a calming exercise I created, borrowing ideas from Buddhism and stillness practice.

💜

1. Sit or lay comfortably.

💕

2. Relax your shoulders and neck by letting the muscles release themselves.

💕

3. Allow your shoulders to drop naturally and your neck to let you head rest comfortable,without forcing it into any particular position.

💕

4. Relax your face muscles and let your cheeks and lips completely relax and drop.

💕

5. Breath in relaxed, drawing the breath in  fully. Then breath out while closing the back of your throat just enough to control the breath as you expell it.

💕

6. Say this sentence in your mind…

“There is stillness between each word”

💕

7. Repeat the sentence in your mind…putting space between each word. Breath relaxed as you say them, and continue to relax your face and mouth.

“There…is…stillness…between…each…word.”

💕

8. Repeat the sentence several times slower each time. Allow the space between each word to get longer and more expansive each time you repeat the sentence.

“There……..is……..stillness……..between……each……..word.”

💕

9. Relax into the spaces between the words and feel that silent space expanding within you and beyond you.

💕

10. Allow any thoughts to go away during these silent spaces. Just fall into the quiet between the spaces between the words.

You can anticipate the next wotd…picture it….during the spaces….but allow the “running mental tapes” to be silent.

Sometimes images will arise but let them drift into the distance.

Fall into the arms of the ceasing of the constant words that usually run through your mind.

Just “be” and rest your mind. The mind needs a rest from the constant chatter.
