21-Day Meditation Experience…

I signed on to participate in this 21 Day Meditation Experience as a way of rebooting my own practice. I still have plenty of ‘weight’ I’m carrying around with me that needs ‘shedding’… So here’s to getting and feeling ‘lighter.’

I thought as I proceed over the next 21 Days, I’d share The Message Of The Day…Today I’ll be sharing Days 1 and 2….

Day 1 – Finding the Lightness in Your Life – A Personal Journey

“Lightness and weightiness… are both choices in life.” ― Erik Pevernagie

Welcome to our 21-Day Meditation Experience, Shedding the Weight: Mind, Body and Spirit. We are delighted you are joining us on this adventure to transform all of our heaviness and burdens in life to lightness and fulfillment. Together we will understand that “shedding the weight” is not only an issue for our bodies, but that we are also weighed down with emotional, mental, and spiritual burdens. 
Today we discover that we don’t have to struggle to shed our burdens – all we need to do is expand our awareness. In that awareness we find the inner fulfillment that is our true self. This state of expanded awareness is the lightness in your life, and allows you to effortlessly let go of heaviness that doesn’t serve you. 
As we continue this Meditation Experience over the next few weeks, we will explore all the ways to shed our weight, whether it is physical, mental, or emotional.
 

There’s no doubt my past has been one helluva load to carry. That load has definitely decreased since starting The Sandbox Writing Challenge. Digging in that ole sandbox has allowed me to find my voice, and in doing so, has helped me to start ‘letting it go’ and lighten that load I’d been carrying.

Day 2 – Transforming Heavy to Light

“When you allow your ways to be light you go high.” ― Raphael Zernoff

In today’s meditation, we explore how to transform the heaviness in our lives to our natural state of lightness. The heaviness of our burdens comes from our attachment to past pain and trauma, as well as anxiety and fear of the future. As we learn to live consciously in the present moment, we find we don’t have to do anything to let go of burdens of pain and fear – they let go of us. Our natural state of balance in life is lightness and ease.

 

Monday Morning’s Musings ☀️

“(S)he is one of those who has had the wilderness for a pillow, and called a star her/his brother. Alone. But loneliness can be a communion.” ~Dag Hammarskjöld~


“Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.”  ~Dalai Lama~

“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.” ~Eve Ensler~
