Sitting Practice Week 3: Cultivating the Peaceful Feeling of Balance (7 min)
In this week’s sitting practice, we’re exploring the concept of Balance.
Last week, your sitting practice helped your body become still and your mind to focus and settle for a bit. This is an important part of maintaining balance.
Balance is not a “thing”. It’s not a matter of having/doing/being the perfect blend of all things. Balance is a state of mind. When things don’t go as planned, how do you react? Do you feel “off” or out of balance? Especially when we feel pulled in many directions, play loops of worrisome thoughts about the past or the future, or experience strong emotions (which is so common in motherhood!), it’s essential to have a way to return to a more balanced, calm and less reactive state of mind. And your method of returning to balance is as simple and accessible as sitting and breathing. 🙂 You can do this on-demand, multiple times per day! No need for fancy, complicated things. Your body will remember what it’s like to feel balanced. It knows this quality well. You just have to give yourself a moment to reconnect and remember.
At first, you will want to practice this Peace meditation daily with the audio guidance. Once you have a feel for the practice, experiment with doing it on your own any time during the day when you can take a seat with your eyes closed. We love using feeding and baby’s naptime as opportunities to become still, breathe and focus on yourself.
With repetition of this Peace meditation, you may find that your basepoint state of mind is more calm, more balanced and less reactive, regardless of what is going on around you.
“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.” -Anonymous
