Day 2: Sitting
HOLD FOR VIDEO
Today, we’re starting a new sitting/meditation technique. You will be meditation before you start automatic writing, for it allows you to check-in with your body.
Meditation can be a loaded word - how many of you just shuttered when I mentioned it? There’s this notion that you have to be “good” at meditation, and the reality is - you don’t have to be, even just sitting down for 1 minute can count toward meditation. To remove any stereotyping energy, we’re going to call this “sitting”
Key Benefits of Meditation/Sitting:
Lengthens the time from our thoughts to reaction
Slows down our impulsive tendencies
Creates the space for our intuition to come through more powerfully
Allows us to trust our intuition and stop second guessing yourself
Meditation takes commitment, and you need to sit for a minimum of 5 mins a day to start the meditation practice and the time will start to length as the days progress, and you will go deeper naturally with time.
Start your practice
I want you to find a comfortable seat either on the floor or on a surface, if you choose to sit on a chair or couch have both your feet planted firmly in the ground. If it’s easier, have your meditation spot set up, with an alter and a journal nearby.
What you need:
A comfortable place to sit
A phone with or without headphones to play the guided meditation.
HOLD FOR MEDITATION
Incorporate your automatic writing and feel free to write about any thoughts you received during your meditation.
