I have been struggling with anxiety and depression. Not many people know this about me, but I’ve confided in my husband and asked for his help. He suggested that I try meditating.
I have to admit, I was skeptical about that at first. I didn’t really fully grasp or understand what it meant to “meditate”. The picture I had in my mind was of a person sitting indian-style with their arms out stretched chanting, “Ummm…ummm…”
I kept an open mind. I took his advice. I tried it.
No. There was no chanting. LOL. It was as simple as downloading a free audio recording to listen to on my headphones. Actually, the recording was more like a hypnosis, words of wisdom, positive affirmations…and so much more!
It was amazing! The experience was inspiring, empowering, and very helpful. I could not believe it! I allowed my mind to become clear of anxiety, sadness, and stress.
I felt at peace.
I’d like to share a personal breakthrough I’ve had…
I tell other people, “I love you.” But do I ever tell myself?
As I pondered that, I realized that I have never spoken those 3 powerful words to myself before. I got teary eyed as I looked in the mirror and sincerely said, “I love you.”
It was a beautiful moment.
Having an open mind has led me to my husband (the love of my life), and now has guided me to truly love myself.
