Six Word Saturday - Meditation

Six Word Saturday

Meditation brings peace for a while


I love meditating. In the midst of turmoil, it brings peace to my mind for those few moments.

Yesterday was my dad's death anniversary and I've been restless and jittery since then. Don't know why.  I feel out of synch with the Universe today. So this afternoon I did a 15 minute meditation to clear any negative energies, release blocks. Wow that was so powerful.

I've been meditating for many years now but it's rare that I can feel something. I usually feel great after meditating but don't always feel or see anything. But today was a day to feel it.

When I started I could feel a huge weight just below my throat chakra - like a large, heavy hand on me. And then towards the end of the meditation I could feel it lift off. I've never had that before.

I felt great for sometime and then the restlessness started again. So I'll probably do it again tonight.

Please share your meditation stories and if you've had success with any specific meditations, please share them too.

Have a peaceful day. Om Shanti.

Warm Regards

  1. Glad it's working for you. I go to t'ai chi twice a week and find it very difficult to still my mind during meditation. I used to try and set time aside for it at home but I really haven't bothered lately. I guess it's all according to need.
    Happy Easter!

    1. Happy Easter to you too Restlessjo. I would so like to do tai chi but all the classes I've found are during working hours or much too far away from where I live. I did qi gong some years ago until the classes closed down. As you say - it's all according to need.

  2. How wonderful for you to have discovered this benefit. Keep at it. I have had good results working on an ongoing family issue regarding a close relative's alcoholism and what part--if any--I have in that ongoing addiction.

    Hang in there.

  3. It's great that you were able to use something to help you feel peaceful after the challenging day before. I don't meditate, but maybe I should!

  4. How long ago did you lose your dad? I know anniversaries can be a painful time. My mom lost her mother on her birthday (my mom's birthday) and so her birthday is now a bittersweet occasion.

    1. Hi Carolina Heartstrings. My dad passed away 3 years ago but the sadness never passes. That would be really sad for your mum.

  5. It difficult to let a loved one go however finding your inner peace helps.

  6. I wish I had the peace and quiet to meditate - 2 small boys make it quite difficult.

    1. Hi Debbie. Yes, 2 little ones would make it hard. I only started meditating after mine grew up. There's a time and place for everything, perhaps yours will come along later.

  7. You sound very wise.
    I've never really delved very deep into such spiritual practices. Even so I have dabbled a little with the Suzuki Crystal Mantra and found it very useful.

  10. I agree wholeheartedly. Mediation, and writing, are essential ways to put things into perspective. Peace.

    2. Hi Suzy, I never think of myself as one who meditates. However, I find that when I'm feeling upset or blue, I walk my dog. It is amazing how much better I feel then.

    3. Hi Loy - I think meditation can be done in many ways including walking your dog. Thanks for dropping by.
