Welcome to Day 18 of the 21 Day Meditation Challenge
DAY 18: Refreshment & Peace
You don’t have to force yourself to stop thinking. Thoughts will never disappear; you need to let them come and go. It’s about focusing on the present and not worrying about the past and future. You don’t need to change anything, thoughts, emotions, feelings, just accept them. Our mind is like a clear sky, but there are clouds from time to time, silent meditation helps get back the clarity we want.
Our word for the day is SILENCE
Our writing prompt for the day is, when you’re out in nature, on the meditation cushion, or immersed in prayer, what do you hear? What messages have come through recently in your silence?
It’s Day 18 of the 21 Day Mindfulness Meditation Challenge. Set your timer for 18 minutes and BEGIN with your meditation session, focus on your breath and your intention for the day. To begin, take 5 deep cleansing breaths and then just BREATHE in a natural rhythm. Today take your moments to focus on SILENCE and clearing your heart and mind in all that you do. Be clear in your mind, body and spirit, manifesting a sense of cultivating positive, clear loving focus that you can direct and manage throughout your day.
You can also simply sit for 18 minutes in silence or if you need assistance, click on the link for a short meditation session from our podcast.
See if you can take this SILENCE into the rest of the moments in your day. Thank yourself with the following affirmation, "I know refreshment & peace in silence.” Namaste! You have completed Day 18 in your journey. Make it a beautiful day!
