What is feeling meditation? It is the idea that we connect with our feelings as part of our meditation practice. This type of meditation is very good for all people, yes even people that block their emotions from personal awareness. How do you do this? Ideally, sit outside under a tree or near water. Inside the home works too.
Sit with the idea of listening to your breathe, now bring your breathe to the core of your body and now slowly exhale. After a few minute passes, check in with your body, what emotion or emotions want your focus? Sometimes, they are contradictory. I am feeling joy and sadness at the same time. It is all part of the process, keep feeling and keep breathing. Remember emotions are not bottomless pit, they are a spring well of emotions. It would be so helpful to share your experience with this exercise. Life is a co-creative connection, right?
Sometimes when I have read about meditation the message is to detach from your feelings. What feelings, all feelings, or just the "bad" feelings? Whom has decided that feelings are not part of someone's meditation practice? Also, is it the intellectual feelings or is it the heart centered feelings. More later.
What does the pursuit of happiness mean? As a child I had a decidedly negative feeling about pursuing happiness. As if being happy is a bad thing. Now, my sense is that when a person is happy they can share their joy with others, the domino effect of love. How does one create happiness? First, acknowledging that being happy is a lofty goal. As valuable a life experience as prosperity, education, family and friendship. Happiness is maintained by being of service to others and using your talents and loving yourself. Happiness is what happy does! Happiness is full of wonderful self-talk to empower your life to be happy. Happiness bites the tail of happy. Happy Trails to You!
Earth Whisperer The White Chick from Tacoma is a paranormal non-fiction fantasy. It is more important to me that people read the book with fun than analyze is this true. It is my wish that people will think about their own messages from the paranormal side of life.
Today on the sacred anniversary day of 9/11 let remember how our personal unity and our open heart to each others moved us forward in living. Let us remember our feelings of vulnerability as human beings. From the destruction came a rebirth of compassion and love.
