Breathe in - Write out ... with Yvette Raposo

I went to "Breathe in - Write out", guided meditation led by my friend, Yvette tonight.

Learn about that clear space in your mind which you’ll want to visit often by finding that place of peace in your heart.

No past experience necessary … no expectations … permission to allow yourself to be guided by me, simply share the energy and observe the stillness within … pay attention to what arises, the potential … your choice.

Guided Meditation
Relaxation through Breath
Writing for Clarity
Sealed by Stretching

Tonight we started journalling.

Yvette had us write down "Why do I ... ?" and then list what came to mind. Then we had to assign one word that either summarized or was a positive reaction to the list. My list was mainly about not going to the gym as often as I should and that I should eat better, etc. ... the word that came to mind was "self-care".

Then Yvette guided us into a meditation. We had to think of a memory where we experienced our word. She said if you couldn't think of one, you could picture what it would look like. I couldn't think of a memory ... what came to my mind, though, was running along the water, smiling and laughing. At one point, I passed a big platter of baby carrots, cherry tomatoes and pineapple. Ha! It was all very vivid.

Very inspirational session!
