Today is day 332 of my meditation journey.
i am amazed to consider that i am only about a month (33 days) short of meditating for one year! Seriously! i was thinking about it just the other day and i thought i was closer to nine months than to a year. So, i'll definitely make it to my year anniversary of meditating before the baby is born, God willing baby stays put at least until due. :)
Recently, i've been able to incorporate a few longer (33 minute) meditations. My preference would be to do them that long (or longer!) if i could, but i do have a family for which i need to do things. i'm still primarily doing Kirtan Kriya, but every once in a while i'm able to also do a Conquering Anger Meditation, too.
Remember, though... i've been walking daily since early in April (except Sundays), i still also read my scriptures morning and night and pray morning and night... so, when i consider that, i can see pretty clearly why i am feeling better. i'm FINALLY taking care of myself!! The following are how i believe i am taking care of myself: physically (my walks), mentally (reading when i can, doing my bit online, and prayer/scripture study), emotionally (prayer, self-speak; particularly outloud), and spiritually (prayer: especially the spoken out loud ones!, scripture reading/study, and meditation). If you know me or have been reading along here for a while, you'll readily recall that i have added on different self-care practices VERY slowly. It's doable! One BABY-step at a time! ^_^ Even with four children and homeschooling!
