Today’s morning meditation will help you practice patience.
Good morning, beautiful,
This week, our theme is patience.
Patience is the ability to wait for a long time without becoming annoyed or upset.
The true value of practicing patience is our ability to not allow outside people or circumstances to dictate our state of being. And it also helps us surrender to what is instead of fighting to make things how we want them to be.
It is always a practice.
So Let’s Begin…
MORNING PRACTICE FOR PATIENCE MORNING MEDITATION SCRIPT
So let’s begin this morning by bringing your attention onto your breath.
Bringing you away from the thoughts and emotions swirling around,
And finding solace in the simple movement of your inhale,
And your exhale.
Now let your breath expand,
Breathing in just a bit deeper,
And breathing out just a bit longer.
Letting it slow you down,
And bring you here.
Your body may be asking for your attention.
Perhaps your nose itches,
Or your arm wants to move,
Or maybe your leg wants to stretch.
Without responding to any of these requests,
See if you can simply notice what your body is asking for,
And sit with it.
Resisting the urge to scratch,
Or move for just a bit.
And instead just focusing on your breath while you wait.
Breathing out any discomforts through your exhale.
Now see if you can recognize any thoughts you may be having,
Thoughts telling you to do something,
Or thoughts reminding you of the tasks for the day ahead.
See if you can imagine these thoughts as clouds floating above you.
You, here, separate from them,
Choosing in this moment not to engage in their demands,
But instead sitting here patiently,
In the space of presence and nothingness.
Focusing instead on your breath.
And breathing out.
Let yourself feel the spaciousness,
The power of being still,
The beauty of not reacting.
The power of patience.
