At least, it didn't come naturally to me. I was , what I like to call, "Meditation Impaired".
I know that I'm not alone. My mind is so busy, thoughts just running through, swinging around like drunken monkeys. That is why I need meditation. I need to give myself a rest, recharge, and come back into the moment.
"I need to go to the grocery store... what was it I needed? Are we out of milk?...OMG, I hope no one heard my stomach gurgle...Did I lock my door before I left?...Oh no! I forgot to call my sister, I'll have to call her when I get home, but I have to go to the store, pick up the kiddo and get him ready for bed...oh and he needs a bath tonight, am I out of soap? I need to put that on my list...am I sitting up straight enough? or am I starting to slouch?...aaaand there goes my stomach again. I hope no one noticed..."
You get the idea. That right there, ladies and gentleman, used to be my thought process during meditation. But I kept practicing and I'm getting better every time. And you can too. Your brain deserves a rest, you deserve a rest!
