Headspace, day 5

by Sofia

Been listening to the meditation tracks from Headspace in an attempt to ease myself into meditation practice. So far it’s going nicely, but haven’t braved facing the abyss on my own just yet.

A snippet from today’s recording:

If you’re uncomfortable, I’d like you to notice what happens when you stop resisting the pain or the tension and simply allow it to happen, allowing it to make itself more obvious, which is actually part of it being released.

I’ve been really anxious recently and this struck me as so obviously what I need to do in order to be a little less freaked out. Fortunately I’ve committed myself to practice sitting quietly, doing nothing, exposing myself completely to my own thoughts with nowhere else to hide. I hope this works.
