When I was in treatment in a morning group the facilitator would have us participate in what is called “Guided Relaxation”

Basically it is a person taking you through some steps to help you to relax. It is usually with light background music.

I found it quite effective, sometimes some would nod off which wasn’t frowned on.

With a simple Google search thousands of sites were given.  I cannot recommend anything because I do not remember any of the ones used while in treatment.

I found some on Amazon with the average price around $20.00.

So, I just thought that maybe if you are looking for some way to relax Guided Relaxation (Meditation), go ahead do some research and maybe give it a try.

Stillness

Nearly everybody I know does something to try to remove herself to clear her head and to have enough time and space to think… All of us instinctively feel that something inside us is crying out for more spaciousness and stillness to offset the exhilarations of this movement and the fun and diversion of the modern world.

Psa 46: [MSG]
10a  “Step out of the traffic! 

The King James of the above verse is this “Be still…”.

At any given time here in the city I live in you can drive by a certain coffee franchise and see a line of cars waiting to pick up their favorite version of coffee at the drive thru window.

Just listening to my daughter and the schedule she has to keep getting my grandchildren to all of their activities makes me feel exhausted.

I cannot remember the last time when I have stepped out into the still of the night and the only sounds I hear are those the creatures of nature.  Or the last time I have seen the northern lights dance with such beauty that takes your breath away and stand there in awe of what you are beholding.

My best time of the day is at night where I can just be still, reflect on the events of the day.  Time to just quiet my mind and my spirit.  Time to cleanse from all those things that kept you on edge.

When is the last time you just did absolutely nothing.  No phone, no television, no children tugging on you, just so quiet that you can almost hear your heart beat within you.

Meditation is a good thing, not really thinking about anything, just letting your frustrations leave your body from your head to your toes.

So, I would encourage you to take time and be still!
