Mindfulness, Spirituality & Mysticism

Mindfulness is a simple practice of awareness.

Here’s how to begin:

1. Notice how you are feeling. If you feel a slight breeze, go into the feeling. If you feel achy, notice every nuance of the ache, then notice something else.
2. Be curious. Judging traps us in discomfort. A curious attitude cures judgment.
3. Use your senses. Feel. Listen. Look. Smell. Mindfulness is a practice of using your bodily senses…not your mind. Ironic, huh? And relaxing.
Enjoy your new mindfulness practice for peace of mind and physical health.
