Mindfulness and Affirmations

On yesterday I had a complete breakdown, anxiety attack and all. My chest hurt, my head hurt, and my breathing was just to fast. I hadn’t felt this way in a long time, usually my meds kick in. I was so overwhelmed with heartache for my son, that I couldn’t think straight….then I decided to practice what I preach. I sat and ask Alexa to play some meditation music and did my breathing. Inhaling the negative, exhaling the positive. My breathing started to slow, I was a little more relaxed. I felt my blood pressure was sky-high and my head was swimming. I couldn’t stand, so I sat for a few and just prayed. After much-needed prayer and a little meditation, I decided to recite some affirmations to myself, I said them, believed them, and prayed about them. Needless to say I felt a little better, it didn’t hurt that my ladies from Diamonds and Pearls sent a prayer to me. And wouldn’t you know it, my son called!! He didn’t have long,  just enough to tell me a joke, and that he loved me. All I needed was to hear his voice, my sweet boy!!

    Good for you. It can be hard to learn to be present and just breathe during the good, the bad, the boring same old same old. A lot of times I pay no attention, and then I have those choking things where if I don’t do it right that’s the end, and THEN I get reminded to pay attention to it. That’s my body’s version of an app to remind me–I guess it could be called app-nea, like sleep apnea. And I’m glad you heard from your son and he sounded okay. Prayers can be excellent things.
