Just like a puppy, our minds love to go astray. To wonder and constantly move without stopping. In this ever-changing environment our mind will keep constantly react, respond and repeat to external an internal dialogue just to keep up with the resilience.

Sometimes it gets overwhelming and hence our minds do need a break.

As well as a break, we do also need to be kind to our minds. It is natural for it to constant flow with thoughts, emotions and feelings.

Let's explore this kindness as well as resting our mind with today's session.

    Intro to Yoga Nidra (Sleep Yoga)

    17:32

    Basics of Yoga Nidra. I am currently on a 40-day journey, whereby to quickly summarise what Yoga Nidra is about is pretty much 'sleep' yoga. Just like meditating, I lie instead of sit and listen to a set-up script. Yogra Nidra is quite famous to help those with sleep issues and I was hooked into the script just because of how it can set anyone up to have a blissful experience no matter how new anyone is to meditation. And if you need a sleep story, this one can help a long way. Let's try.

    Noting Judgement

    8:42

    And following on from the previous episode about resolving internal conflict, conflict surfaces when there is some judgement. Perhaps the judgements that lead to negativity. So in today's session, we will try to note these as a matter of fact without really judging because they are merely our thoughts linked to the past experiences we have. Noting is a good practice because it takes us away from reaction into observation. Enjoy~!

    Resolving Internal Conflict

    9:07

    Following on from the previous chapter about being kind to our thoughts, there is likely some things that surface to our minds which gives us discomfort, that brings out perhaps sadness or pain.  Often in society these days we are taught to push them away, suppress them or ignore them.  I have learnt through my journey is that once I just sit next to these thoughts, feelings or emotions, just for a small moment, they too dissipate slowly. It was the fear of being with them that held me back.  I learnt to be just a little braver with that little step gave me a huge leap of courage and calmness.  Let's try.

    Season 4 done. Onwards to Season 5!

    6:22

    There we have! End of Season 4, but I found that quite enjoyable with personalised background music.  The theme continues to Season 5 where we continue with background sounds (subtle, yet effective) and maybe moving into more Yoga Nidra-ish theme. We will take a pause through the holiday season and will be back in the new year. Season greetings, and Happy 2022! Little message from me before we head off for a break.

    Visualisation: Beach

    8:15

    I have always loved the beach when I was little, since I grew up in a tropical climate country.  Those days when my family would take trips to the island had been special memories to me right up to now.  This episode takes you on a journey into visualising ourselves at a beach, and so it may be only suited to those who have been there. Even then, the exercise would benefit all as it is a journey to enhance all 5 senses when entering a space of nature.  Go ahead and explore.

    Feeling Tones

    11:02

    Feeling tones.  The pleasant, unpleasant and neutral. This I have actually introduced briefly in the first season, but now we delve deep slightly.  All about feeling. About listening to the feeling internally. And all about staying and sitting with this feeling without fear.  Calmly and simply.  Try it, it's not as scary as you think.

    Resting the Mind

    8:18

    Sometimes you just wonder 'how in the world that this mind of mine cannot stop conjuring the past, planning the future, even having a friendly chat with me and never stops to rest?'.  It is amazing how much our mind can keep going, if I were to compare it to exercising or mowing the lawn I bet the whole park would be done over a day or I'd be one of the fittest person in the planet.  Little do we know, our minds do not know how to rest when it needs to.  So perhaps tune into this episode to see if it works for you.  Enjoy.
