The Voice (not the TV show)

I wrote in my post ‘Mindfulness Meditation‘, the following –

At times my mind is chaotic with thoughts swirling and never ending.  My mind can feel like ‘white noise (Static)’.  Do you remember old TV sets, with a station with no programming, the visual static and noise it made, at times my mind feels similar to this.

I wrote in my post ‘What is meditation teaching me?‘, the following –

Meditation has joined with me and helps me, though a slow process for me, it is improving me.  Meditation is taking me to a quieter mind and bringing me back to be in the moment, at this time at this place; a better place.  Meditation is teaching me, though a slow process for me, to have additional patience, improved concentration and to have calmness during times of interruptions.

In today’s post, I write the following –

During one morning’s meditation, I recorded my mind!  You ask how can you record your mind?  Not easy, I would not try this at home – very dangerous!

Listen as I proceed and take you through a short period of meditation –

    • Thank you sir! I was trying to illustrate what my mind does at times, so much chatter taking place and I am trying to calm it down to one voice. It is a slow process for me, but one that I am seeing some progress! Happy day my friend! 🙂

    • When I first started meditating I did listen to some audio meditation sessions, because I needed that direction. Then after awhile and becoming easier for me I stopped using the audio and now achieve a meditative state quite well. I am getting better at it – still need to practice. Thanks Steph, hope your day is going well. 🙂

  1. That white noise is what makes it hard to meditate, but also why you need to meditate. I also have experienced meditation centering my mind and emotions. I must say, that was quite a bit of chatter! 🙂

  2. That is an excellent insight of how one’s mind can be. I have huge respect for anyone that can meditate and does meditate. I have tried to meditate, and pretty much my mind cannot settle, but I am impatient, I also can’t sit still for too long, so I just give up, which is not the right thing to do, I know. Perseverance is important, and I know, practice makes perfect 🙂 Well done to you, for doing this everyday. Have a good day 🙂

    • Keep at it Lynne, it will pay off in the long run. I have overcome that chatter and find it easier to meditate. I experienced all those things you mentioned also and it was frustrating, but as you wrote perseverance is important. Hang in there – a good day to you as well! 🙂

  3. I do remember the old tvs and your example is fitting. I’ve tried so many times to quiet my mind, like Kerry’s mine is more like my voice repeating phrases over and over vs. hearing many voices. If I could learn patience I know I could get there but like you said initially it takes time. Just thinking about trying to meditate causes me anxiety.

    • Oh Steph, I understand the anxiety in trying to meditate. It was so very difficult for me in the beginning that at one point I quit. When I started again I realized I was becoming upset because I was unable to control my thoughts. So I started acknowledging the thoughts and not becoming upset that they were there. Once this occurred I was able to start letting the thoughts go and concentrate just on my breathing. My meditation is still a work in progress, but certainly I am better at it then when I started. Thanks for reading and commenting today. 🙂
