This morning I woke up and rolled out my yoga mat. Well it was more like I woke up, kinda fell out of bed onto the floor and rolled out the yoga mat-but the yoga made it out and I completed a three minute ego eradicator mediation. After these meditations my mind empties of all worries and the creativity flows in abundance.
So later when I was chopping celery this morning, I had this thought:
“I have more trust in my actions. “
And for some reason this completely blew my mind because it was so true. Since I’ve been making a clear conscious effort to be present and taking breaks throughout the day to meditate I have become more trusting of myself. I don’t know about you, but I would spend hours obsessing over how I behaved in a social situation, or if I wrote a confusing email, or if I answered the questions properly on the exam. In my eyes, no action that I completed was ever correct. I berated myself over little things or sometimes I couldn’t even make decisions because I was so afraid that I would make the wrong choice. Looking back, this was a major weight on my shoulders and really kept me from feeling comfortable and confident.
Having trust in our actions is incredibly powerful because it’s the knowledge that we believe in ourselves. I’ve found that by watching my breath when I meditate, I have transformed my mind to becoming more aware of my thoughts, and then I’ve been able to let go of those worries. It’s not about getting angry with yourself because you feel fearful, but becoming consciously aware of what’s bothering you, accepting it for what it is, and letting go with the breath. Here’s how I break it down:
Meditate. Become Aware. Accept. Let Go. Be Trust.
