The most exquisite feeling is total stillness in my body and mind,
when the anxious spinning within stops,
incessant thoughts and behaviours cease, my mind and body become one,
and I can breathe my own breath with rhythmic ease.
When I feel a deep sense of inner settlement.
When I become the observer and no matter what happens
I am not looking back, I am not looking forward – I am present in the moment.
Things just are what they are, I am where I am, and I accept it.
I am not buzzing with reactions, fears, worries or unrealistic expectations.
I know what is needed. I can focus.
I freely express.
When I feel connected, my mind and body in the same place at the same time.
I can connect to truth, to purpose. I am confident, inspired, resilient.
I trust myself, I trust others and life.
When I can listen to, and heed the messages from my body and surrender to its innate wisdom and healing powers.
When I live in connection, stillness, harmony and flow I feel taller,
lighter, healthier, present, powerful, and totally fit for life.
I am open to new perspectives and embrace new behaviours.
I feel ready, willing and able for what comes next.
This is why I meditate!
