Happy Saturday Lovecats!
I know I haven’t shared about meditation (or anything at all) in a while, but I still include a meditation practice in my daily routine (sometimes alone, chanting my own favorite mantras in any free time I have -or any time I am stuck waiting for something or someone) but mostly I use the Oprah/Deepak guided meditations, which I still love.
I have at least ten of them downloaded to the app on my phone and choose accordingly each day which I think will be the best. I’ve been using them to meditate since 2014 and it has seriously changed my life in ways I wasn’t expecting. If you haven’t started meditating daily, these guided mediations are the easiest way to start a practice of it.
However, I think they stopped producing new ones because the last few “free” 21 day experiences have been repeats of past ones, which is one of the reasons why I haven’t shared. The latest one is Miraculous Relationships and begins on July 15th and while I do think it’s a repeat, it’s one I never purchased and downloaded because I wasn’t entirely feeling it. But maybe I just wasn’t in the right mindset for it then, so I’m excited to try it again now.
If you’ve got the app downloaded on your phone, a new 20 minute meditation from the 21 Day experience will show up each day and stay active for 5 days until the 21 days are up. Then they give you the opportunity to buy it at a discounted rate if you so choose. So I’ll be following along with this one, hoping to gain a new perspective and learn something maybe about relationships -because let’s face it, we all need help in that department because people are hard and we are hard and sometimes relationships are hard, right?
I’ve tried a handful of other guided meditations, and these are still my favorite 🙂
