Similar to yesterday's practice, we find a seat, align, and establish our base before moving into a counting technique to focus and calm the mind. After establishing our framework, we soften and expand on the mantra AUM.

I am eager to communicate with others doing this challenge. And not eager to spread my thoughts all over the cyber world- but here it goes. Just finished day 8 of this meditation challenge. Day 1-5 were easy for me, it was new, I felt focused, calm, etc. Day 6-8 have been quite a struggle. Mind shooting off in all directions, body uncomfortable. I have this habit of falling into ooji breathing whenever I am on my yoga mat, so I can't seem to find "natural" breathing with these various techniques. But I bought a Mala and I am ready perservere.
Peg ! What you are going through is not uncommon. Stay with the process and let yourself observe everything you are experiencing. Some days are easier than others, and by the end you will be able to look back and discover which techniques were best for you and why. I had a challenging time when i went from years of counting breath style to mala and mantra and now its my favorite!!
Today counting was effortless. I enjoyed the mantra meditation. At the end, I did not want to stop. This was the best meditation experience that I have had maybe ever.
So happy to hear that Curtis !!!

I enjoyed the mantra more today than yesterday. It evolved into the word 'love' though and so I let it go to that. I'm really feeling the benefits of meditation, feeling a calmness in myself that I haven't felt before. Thanks so much.
Thanks Nikki. I'm getting a deeper understanding of meditation, a real learning experience about the subtle layers of mind body and soul. Namaste.
