Meditation is good for you, right? Right. There’s no telling what is going to come up for you when you sit and meditate. But guess what? I’ve fallen off of the meditation wagon. It’s been a good long while since I’ve had a consistent meditation schedule.
I’m changing that this week. I want to get back into it and reap the endless benefits. But if I don’t HAVE to do something, I likely won’t. I’ll find an excuse to put it off until I’m too tired to make it happen. However, since I’ve told all of you fabulous readers that meditation is my test this week, now I HAVE to do it. It’s called accountability and it’s something I need if I expect to accomplish anything.
But why meditation? What’s so great about it? If you’re asking that question then I’m so sorry you haven’t experienced the wonders of meditating:
-It reduces your stress
-Provides greater self-awareness
-Reduces memory loss
-Gazillions of other benefits
I have my (third) eye on one benefit this week, and that’s dreaming. I’m looking forward to how focused inattention to my thoughts will transfer into my dream state. Will forcing myself to stay calm and centered while I’m awake encourage me to stay calm and centered in my dreams? Will the shapes, and images I conjure up in my meditation while awake provide a vivid landscape in my dreams? Will I be able to create a scene from Dream Town in my mind while awake, and visit the same scene when I dream?
So many questions, but how many answers?
Tonight, and each night this week, before going to sleep, I’ll sit in my perfect little meditation corner, light some white sage incense and a candle, throw on some binaural beats, and have a moment with myself. I’ll journal about the experience, and sneak off to sleep. Then as always, share Dream Town with you tomorrow.
Be sure you’re following me everywhere so you don’t miss a thing!
