My meditative practices have gotten better each week. I have been focusing a lot on my breathing and just trying to not let my mind wander and start thinking about all the things that stress me out. There were actually a few times this week where I was able to just sit and relax for about ten minutes and it felt great. I am still working on my loving-kindness exercises by just telling myself it is ok to forgive and forget. It is still a work in progress. Even though my meditation practices are not perfect and do not always work I have definitely noticed a difference in my overall well-being. I do not know if it is just due to being conscious of the things that stress me out, but I have been in a better mood lately and less is getting to me. The more I practice the more I should be able to improve upon this.
This quote kind of applies to me now. I am trying to help clients with their spiritual wellness and meditation practices when I have not perfected them myself. I can see where this could be a disadvantage because if I have not experienced what it feels like to achieve this then how can I fuly help them? I think in a way though it is good because my clients and I can grow spiritually together and learn and offer insight that may be able to help one another.
