Meditating my butt!

Week three of the 8 Minute Meditation program has you noticing body sensations. This is day two for me, and today was surprisingly successful. Allowing your mind to notice body sensations unbiddeno was easier than I imagined. Did okay yesterday, too.

My mind did wander a bit, but I was able to let the thoughts go and return to noticing my body pretty easily. I plan to do this meditation again today, right before bed time.

Oh, I highly recommend this program, but I think it’s important to purchase the accompanying CD. You use the CD instead of an egg timer to keep track of how much time has elapsed, and every minute or so Victor Davich reminds you of your goal and tells you that if your mind is wandering, allow it, then return your attention to your body (or breathing, or whatever the goal of the week is).

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
