I like your guided meditation better. Using this technique, I never made it down to 1. I had to keep going back to 50 and starting over. But if I had to meditate without your guidance, I would try this technique more often.
I love a good counting meditation, and this was a new one for me. It was very effective and calming. What I like about a counting meditation is that my mind does not wander as much as it does in a guided meditation. For me, a guided practice holds too many triggers for my imagination to run wild.

As for the posture, I always sit this way in meditation πŸ‘Œ

Thank you Nikki. This particular counting technique was new to me and I found it very serene. I find meditations guided by imagery rather too distracting. I like the neutrality of counting. But each to her own, right? I’m really enjoying this series πŸ“ΏπŸŽπŸ™πŸ»
excellent Debra - yes to each their own which is why I offered so many techniques within this challenge. It is important to find what works for us!

nice to try something different, with the seating and counting - though ended up moving back to crossed legs and ignoring the counting (after about 15 mins). missed the initial more detailed direction with the body scan. still interesting though, thanks.
Hi Nikki. I found the counting technique distracting so went back to simply observing my breath . I didn't change my posture. I enjoyed being in meditation longer and the sense of calm peace and contentment. Namaste
