Mindfulness Meditations

Practising focusing attention, exercising our muscles of awareness and connecting, significantly increases our wellbeing. This is being human, and being mindful is a natural state, however, it isn’t always easy. This is why a course, is proven to be the most effective way of receiving the benefits of mindfulness practice.

"The present moment is the only moment available to us and is the door to all moments."

 

- Thích Nhất Hạnh -

To start you on your journey of awareness, Positively Mindful has created some unique guided meditations, we invite you to listen and be with whatever arises, as best you can. Cultivating compassion for ourselves is paramount for any meditation practice, so if you find things difficult, move towards being kind to yourself, and notice how that unfolds. 

 

Mindfulness is about non-striving, so there is no right or wrong way to do the practices. You are cultivating attitudes of non-judgement, acceptance, trust, letting go, beginner’s mind and patience and these take time to develop. Listen and notice your reactions, observe how you feel, your thoughts, sensations and emotions and keep practising.

“Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves. It is a daily practice.” 

- Thích Nhất Hạnh -

"I’ve been going through some bad stuff but the sessions and home practice have definitely helped so I feel like I'm emerging from my depression.”

JUST DIAGNOSED WITH HIV

Our ability to catastrophise – to create a worst case scenario and follow the negative train of thought – is phenomenal. So is our ability to dwell in the present moment and find peace if we practise. If we train our minds to focus on our bodies and our breath and observe our thoughts as they arise without following their ‘story’ we can become aware that thoughts are not facts. Thoughts are simply what your mind is saying or creating at any given moment. At this moment your diagnosis is a shock, even if you were expecting it! But if you are breathing, you are alive, and just right now, at this moment, you can breathe with me.
