You all hear me moan and complain about focus…most of the time I feel I have none. I am trying to correct that issue for myself. I mentioned that I had started to meditate again and I swear it helps. I’ve been saying my mala beads each day, usually before the sun comes up. I light a candle and it’s very peaceful.
However I do think that doing a guided meditation would be helpful. Several years ago I was fortunate enough to travel to Kripalu in Western Massachusetts. In fact, my header photo with the Buddha was taken there. While there I attended one meditation session with a wonderful lady named Bhavani Lorraine Nelson. It was a wonderful experience and I purchased her CD.
It’s been sitting here waiting for me to open the shrink wrap. I decided it was time to do that, but then came the issue of actually playing the CD. I know I can do it on the computer, but I don’t usually turn the computer on prior to meditating. I suddenly remembered that there was something hiding in a box in the basement.
It’s a portable CD player that I had gotten for Free at the rummage sale. It didn’t have earphones, but fortunately I had a set. I put in fresh batteries and put in a CD. Like any machine you’re not familiar with, it takes a little trying to get it to work, but in no time…I was listening! I haven’t used it for meditation yet, but I’m planning on doing that over the weekend. I know it’s dumb, I know it’s a simple thing AND I know I had all these pieces here…I just needed to get them all togther!!
I’m going to get used to the guided meditation and fit it into my current meditatin routine. I think it will be a big plus…and help me Focus!
No clue what Weight Watchers will hold for me when I get there today, but…as long as I get there…that’s all that counts!
