idk why but meditation is one of the hardest things to make routine for me lol. seems a bit that way for most pple.

Miles to go before I sleep.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving

Great stuff . I haven't managed to keep this going yet (my energies have been kinda low and my priorities are elsewhere atm, a pitiful excuse I know), but I am glad to see you are starting to make it a habit .

Okay, I'm back on track. ! Meditated a few times this week. I've also used Amethyst during my sessions, felt really grounded. A while ago I tried it with selenite (*facepalm*) I think I had some weird reaction. Oh well. So far, so good...

Cool Afreen88, keep going and the benefits keep getting better.

Impressive.

I am going to try to start this again for pain relief - it's in my new schedule so hopefully I can make it a habit like you have.

I've been thinking about meditation. I have no life as it is so why not try new things like this.

I have been meditating for over 5 years but most of that was kind of on and off but for a year and a half now I practice daily for a combined total of around 2 - 3 hrs a day. Longest I sit for is usually 45 mins but have done a longer before. Shorter practices are great and beneficial but you get that real sense of calm and peace the longer you sit for, and mindfulness spills more into your daily life when practice for longer periods, well thats what I find anyway.

Benefits, there a quite a few so I may miss some, but it helps mood obviously, I can either cut my thoughts off if i need to, or stay with them no matter how bad they are and remain in control and always see that they are just thoughts, not facts or reality. I can communicate better with people by being mindful when listening and talking, rather than thinnking about saying something stupid or embarrasing. I used to suffer from regular bouts of insomnia and took sleeping pills, now I dont - i just focus on breath for long enough and I'll fall asleep. Exercise, being a dad, eating better, a nicer person (generally :-) ), more organised at work and around the house, all sorts.

just to let you all know, the mindfulness is still going great, and I`m doing really well with it - I just poured half a bottle of listerine over my head in the shower !!

I have always struggled with meditation and how to allow myself to stop all of the thoughts running through my head. I think meditation is the first step when it comes to past life regression therapy and hypnosis. I want to continue practicing meditation and continue to improve. I have been doing research and consulting people who know what they are doing and that seems to help.
