Meditation Challenge: Day 9

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:44 am by kellyfdennis

I knew today needed to be a guided mediation day. At first I judged myself a little for that because I had wanted to shift to non guided by now. However, after thinking about it a little more, I gave myself kudos for knowing what I needed!

For day 9 of the 10 days for 10 minutes per day meditation challenge, I chose a guided  meditation by Tom Evans on the Insight Time app called “Just for Today”. He used gentle, guided words and soft music to create a very peaceful experience. This one was a bit different from other guided meditations I’ve done in that there were lengthy pauses for you to experience what he had just suggested. I liked that, it was a nice balance between silence and speaking. I was able to sit for the full 10 minutes pretty effortlessly.

What did I notice? I noticed a relaxed, curious kind of experience. I felt very tranquil and present. I especially liked when he guided me to acknowledge my thoughts and then let them drift away. There were elements of loving kindness and times to acknowledge feeling grateful. I liked this experience quite a bit and even felt myself smiling at the end.

I wonder what Day 10 will hold. Be Well and Have a Wonderful Day!
