    I hear “thank you” coming from deep down inside. Thank you for this question, dear gratefulness team.

    It is a part of the daily ritual, 20 minutes … on the inhale … “I am not this body”. On the exhale … “I am not even this mind”. With practice it creates a little space between mind and body. The third element then becomes apparent.

    I notice how calm & centered I feel. A peacefulness washes over me.

    I notice that everything else around me stops to matter and some still quiet peace at that moment.

    It’s grounding. I need this practice ahead of an awkward and likely conflicted encounter today.

    Nothing deep or philosophical but do feel my blood pressure go down which always makes me feel better.

    I relax into myself….i connect with my soul, and any anxiety leaves, any thought of the future evaporates. The past is just a memory that can stay there-in the past.
    It has been a “too busy” time for me, and this came just at the right moment. Thank you! I needed a “reset”….I am going to go meditate now….enjoy your time in this moment. In this day. This weekend.

    Just did this exercise. Noticed that my mind became still for those moments….
    It is still early morning. I see the sun shining through the yellow leaves of the magnolia tree outside my window. They are dropping slowly, a few at a time, like a slow rain, after the frost we had last night. Very gentle.

    And now I remember the lovely online memorial we had for Meredith last night, where all present had the chance to share a memory of her. It was gentle, humorous and loving sharing. Like these leaves falling. Usually the fall makes me feel sad and melancholy. But it feels hopeful somehow too, just now. And beautiful in their falling and passing.

    Feeling and hearing the Heart Beat (aka The Pulse of Life) , and thanking the Holy Spirit that it is so. It sounds out the vibrations “I Love You….You are mine…..I Love You …You are mine”, all day and night.

    I notice how much more relaxed I feel. Life feels a little bit easier. I do this conscious breathing before every meditation and whenever I notice I am “tightening up”.

    How grateful I am that my body does this even when I’m asleep, or oblivious and not breathing consciously. Thank you, body, for all that you do!

    I notice when you breath slowly an incredible amount of air flows in. I hold it for 2-3 seconds before exhaling. I’m a visionary person – I envision the air directly helping my cells and body. Have a good weekend everyone:)

    My breath and my mind become one, requiring me to slow down, look around and find peace.

    I suppose the easiest way to describe it is embodiment. I somehow loosen the mind’s grip on experience. The filters on my perception aren’t gone as much as cleaned. Like washing the windscreen, it somehow makes the glass disappear. And with the quieting of the mind comes a grounding in the present.
