#meditate because it’s powerful and everyone can do it...you don’t need a thing to start........I feel this practice is often neglected because there is a believe that you must be taught to do it first well this is all you need to know...1. Find a comfortable sitting position and use pillows or sit in a chair if needed 2. Set a timer for 5mins for your first week and then increase weekly by 2mins (no hurry you have all your life to build up) 3. Use your breath as an anchor...so as you inhale feel the inhale and in your mind just say inhaling and as you exhale say exhaling. NOTE: at first your mind will wonder and you will notice how after a few seconds your mind will have seduced you away from this “breath watching” intention and you may be deep into your to-do list...this is normal...simply come back to the breath. With time you will notice this distraction quicker and quicker and this is how your mind becomes stronger (like bod training but for the mind)...#meditation is a powerful way to reset your nervous system, to re-boot a cluttered mind and bring back that “Blue Sky” kinda thinking and to restore your awareness to your witness or “seat of the soul”, to rise above the material and recognise life as the most precious gift you will ever know THIS aid how we actually feel real peace and #happiness in our lives...not from stuff .. but from a deep connection to gratitude for what life is...#sacred ...Have a beautiful Saturday friends #soniadoubell#meditation#meditationissimple#loveyourbodyhouse#feelyourbreath#knowyouarebreathing#love#innerpeace starts with intention
My life right now - visiting India - spending all my time with family- relaxing, traveling & building my to-do list for when I’m back in the Netherlands. This is a picture taken at a royal temple of Bishnupur. Royal stories and the terra-cotta art all over the temple walls is fascinating.
It’s not easy to feel balanced all the time when living in worlds so different from eachother. I am indian but my heart is international, unique it is but also brings conflict in adjusting certain aspects. I guess that’s life - learning to balance
