I only just managed to get this session started in time. In fact, I had been writing the March round up when I saw the time slipping away and decided to start. You can find the march roundup here
This was the first of the new 35 minute sessions. I knew I was feeling very tired. But I didn’t want to miss the first day of the new month.
We had as a family returned from holiday. It had been a busy couple of days and I was glad to be home.
My youngest was a little ill, so we had been busy right up to the evening. I started in my normal morning way. Lighting a candle and adding a little essential oil. I prepared the cushion on the floor and adjusted to a 35 minute session.
As I entered the preparations I realised my mind was tired and distracted. It took a couple of minutes to get through the preparations and longer to do the body scan. When I finished the body scan I did a visualisation of a white energetic light filling my body from toes to head in the hope it might wake me a little.
It didn’t… As I moved into the breathing I settled on “in” and “out” internally, with an awareness focus on the pause. I didn’t find much focus and spent much of the session fighting off the urge to fall asleep.
As it entered the later stages, I also became impatient to finish. This is something I may also look into as well for the month. It is starting to creep into the end of my sittings now.
Hopefully, I can do a ‘normal’ morning session tomorrow. It feels as though I might need a day or two to regain the focus I was seeing towards the end of March.
