Meditation May

A Month of Meditation in May




The perfect follow up to the A-Z Challenge. A month of meditation. I have just signed up. Why don't you join me? All I have committed to is to meditate for a few moments each day and report back my progress on Soul Speak's blog. It doesn't matter whether it's a minute inbetween washing up and scrubbing the floor (ha ha) or a walking meditation when you take the dog out (probably best to keep your eyes open though, to avoid smashing into trees or stepping in dog poo) or a proper sit down with a lovely smelly candle and legs contorted into the lotus position. Whatever works for you. The full details are on Soul Speaks website here.

I will also report on here every day what amount of time I have meditated, just to keep me accountable, plus any earth-shattering insights I may have. Obviously, if I reach full enlightenment in the month, you will be the first to know.

Who's gonna join me?

  3. Hmmm mediating with all the crazy voices in my head, might be a tough thing to do.

    1. Yes, but cats are quite spiritual animals, so maybe the cat could do it and take you along for the ride!!

  4. Perhaps you'll inspire me, but I've just never been one to meditate.

    1. I will share my experiences, but consistency is my downfall. I always feel benefit when I meditate regularly though. Let's see how I get on!

  5. I spend 1/2 hr every morning in meditation, and a good 1/2 hour at night. Does wonders for perspective eh?

  6. Thank you for stopping by my blog today and becoming my 102nd follower! I got rather excited when I read in your mini-bio that you are writing a humorous memoir - funny writers are few and far between and I am looking forward to reading your blog. The End.

  9. Hi Claire thanks for popping over to my place. I am now "stalking" you! ;) I actually meditate every morning and evening and often times in the afternoon. I find such peace and clarity I really enjoy my meditation zone.
    Great post.
    I'll be back.
    You've been warned. ;)

  11. Aha! This *is* a smart way to decompress after the madness of A to Z! Wish I knew how to meditate...all I know is how to simmer/ruminate, and/or stew. ;-)

    1. LOL All you need to do is just close your eyes, sit quietly and try and focus on your breathing.
