counting meditation

An easy way to rest your mind and prepare yourself for Moo of Writing is to meditate on your breaths. Lie down or sit with your spine straight and your feet flat on the floor. Focus on your breath. When thoughts intrude, let them drift by like fluffy clouds on a warm summer day. One, inhale, two exhale, three, inhale, four, exhale, five, inhale, six, exhale, seven, inhale, eight, exhale, nine, inhale, 10 exhale. One, inhale, two exhale, continue counting your breaths, beginning over when you reach 10. Enjoy your meditation as long as you like. When you are ready, come back to the here and now.

  1. Nan,
    You have the perfect voice for these meditations, so calm and pleasing. It’s hard for me to let those clouds float by but I’m going to keep trying as the breathing really does help. I’ll also use it when my husband bugs me.
