More Meditation

This is exactly what I look like when I meditate.  Except I don't wear earrings.  And I am in  sweat pants and a ratty t-shirt.  And my belly is full of scrambled eggs and cheese.  And my hair is blonde.  And I'm ten (twenty) (ish) years older.  And I'm probably talking or looking around the room.  But other than that, this is exactly what I look like.

So I have continued to partake in daily meditations per the aforementioned 21 day challenge. Admittedly I ordered a completely different Chopra series that focuses on abundance, but I’m still meditating daily.

Thankfully the mental madness seems to be toning down a bit. I focus on the Sanskrit mantras and repeat them over and over again when I start down the mental chatter path. When I say that I repeat them, I mean that I recite something in my head that sounds relatively similar and hopefully has a comparable number of syllables. Hopefully effort counts in the abundance manifesting world. Being the eternal believer, I have a strong feeling that it does. And if not, well I’ll just have to attract better Sanskrit pronunciation skills. :)

Any updates your way??? I’d love to hear if you have been trying anything new or even just getting back to your tried and true practices. No matter what, I send you wishes for a wonderful week! Much love to you. Jo :)

    Hey Chica. I am half way through with the untethered soul And wondering how in the heck you have a online book club. 😊 And when? Also half way through with Franny and Zooey (other book club book). And occasionally trying the meditation thing but never read any guidelines to this so I’m about as successful as your posts. Xxxooo Heidi

      Well there have been a couple ideas thrown out there. I was thinking that other bloggers could maybe post their own entries about their thoughts on various chapters or elements of the book that really spoke to them (or didn’t speak to them if that was their experience). Another dear friend suggested using a free conference calling service and having a group chat. That sounds fun to me but I’m not sure how you control the conversation to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to talk. Maybe I’ll write about it today and get feedback? In the meantime you and I need to talk! When can we catch up! I am calling you in a bit. Just don’t want to wake you (but you have probably been up saving the world for hours now – I know how your awesomeness kicks in early!). :). Xoxo
