Meditation Journal Entry 2

(Above) not my home, but how I love those colors.

In one of my first posts, I mentioned that I was frustrated about not having a good place to meditate in my home. Well, yesterday I was reading a blog post about meditation for beginners. Somehow, it sparked an idea in my mind as to where I could create my space.

It may seem odd, but I have decided to meditate in the hall way from now on. It's the only room in the house, in my opinion, with the right energy. This morning I lit a candle, placed it on the wooden floor in the narrow corridor, sat all wrapped up in a blanket with my back against the wall, breathed deeply, and I knew I had made the right decision.

Though I could still hear the whir of the traffic on the busy street in front of my house, the dogs still barked at squirrels in the yard, and my head throbbed and ached, I still found peace and quiet in that hall.

So tomorrow more sitting!!

Bon Ami,
Glad that you found a place where you can create that inner connection. Hope it all works out for you.

:) . . . Hey whatever works try! I also live on a very busy street so the traffic is totally unaviodable. I have gotten real good at selective hearing, not only during meditation, but also when I go to sleep at night.

Hope you feel better soon!
