The past couple of months I have been really consistent with the practice of meditation.
I don’t do it on a daily basis, it depends on my necessity and the energy around me but I have learned to have fun with it.
I have downloaded an app with nice noises and a voice to guide me, I have short and long videos on my Youtube list to listen to when I am ready.
Honestly, I can’t say that I am getting better at it because some days I try, and I just end up stopping after a couple of minutes or a couple of breaths. I cry, I over -tress or I don’t focus so I end up as more stress than before I started.
So, as I learned, the key is to let go. Some days it’s not the moment or me. Sometimes it is so good I feel asleep.
A couple of weeks ago I tried a special meditation in a center dedicated to it, I really liked it so I just wanted to share my feedback.
It was an hour session of meditation with buddha singing bowls. I have heard a bit of it before (big trend apparently) about the benefits.
I laid on a sofa with a dozen of other people, with a blanket and the voice of the teacher guiding us. We started just with deep breaths exercises and then slowly, the instructor added sounds from the meditation singing bowls.
There is no specific words to describe it perfectly but what I can say is that it felt amazing. Because when the sound starts you are already relaxed, the sounds are vibrating around you and then in you, like waives and you can really feel the energy vibrations inside you.
I mean it’s how it felt for me. I was feeling ways of vibrations inside me, at different intensities and speed, it’s been fluctuating during the session.
I have read Tibetan singing bowls are good to help us heal, they are tools giving us good vibrations of energy. They are not magic tools, it didn’t stop my thoughts during the session but definitely helped me relax a lot.
The hour went by super-fast, I completely lost track of time and when I opened my eyes I felt relaxed, calm and quiet like not very often in my life.
I did this session a Sunday night, let me tell you it’s the best way to finish the weekend and start the week.
Since then, I downloaded several Youtube music videos of these sounds and I love to put them on my phone before going to sleep. I urge you to give it a go and share your experience !
