Sit Through The Storm (10 Min Meditation For Stress)
Welcome to this session to help you through high amounts of stress.
Get into a comfortable position and ensure nothing distracts you.
Now, visualize yourself standing in a big field, and no one else is around… Everything is calm and peaceful... You are surrounded by nature… Sit down in this meadow and look around, noticing the beauty all around you… you are fully relaxed.
In the distance, you see dark clouds closing in as the sky grows a little darker… you see that a small storm is forming and you feel some raindrops falling down.
Imagine that this storm is your stress… it could be mild stress with just some raindrops and a little wind… or it could be very high stress with extremely strong winds and very heavy rain pouring down.
In this visual, we are going to face a very strong and powerful storm to make ourselves stronger within.
So, as you feel the storm getting even stronger and the wind is blowing harder and harder, you sit there in the meadow, completely unfazed by it.
The storm cannot hurt you here.
You have a choice to react to this storm with fear… or with love and compassion, knowing that this storm is harmless in this visualization you are creating... Stress is our reaction to fear, worry, and even high demands…
Whether the fear is real or not, we have to learn the proper reaction to all these things.
Sometimes, you can’t help it and stress will take over in a matter of seconds; we must handle it properly or it will handle us.
Just like sitting through the storm in the field, stress cannot harm you if you know that it simply passes you by.
What matters is your own reaction to the events around you.
Really embrace this stress now and fully let it exist without fighting it...
