I am so busy theses days that normally I wait to meditate until after my morning exercise but I woke up this am at 4am and before going back to bed for a minute, I decided to do morning meditation on Day 20. Yesterday was a little difficult with this new mantra but not today. I was focused, felt relaxed had good concentration and hardly distracted at all. After I finish the challenge, I will probably still pick different days on the challenge and continue to use them in my daily meditation because I feel that I am meditating with a good teacher (Nikki Estrada) and it has really helped my practice. Maybe you guys can have a 50 Day Meditation Challenge next.
50 Days sounds like a great idea, Curtis!

Dear Nikki - I always love meditating with a mantra. They really are “mind protection”, I feel. Although I have had two “good” sessions with Om Shiv Gorak Yogi (that is, thoughts have not intruded) I find that this mantra doesn’t really resonate with me. It could be that my spirit responds more to a concept (Om shanti, soham) than to an incarnation (Shiva, Gorak). But this preference has not undermined the meditation experience. Thank you for your lovely guidance 🌺
Debra do what works best for you! glad you are trying them all out in the process

distracted intermittently by new puppy sleeping on my lap (!) but the mantra supported my staying the course for the session without too much turbulence. thanks again.

I've given it several attempts, but I prefer chanting and using a mala. Internally voicing a mantra and using a mala feels disconnected to me. Once I stop using the mala and just holding it in my hand while internalizing the mantra, I can go deeply inward. I'm glad I discovered this.
Melissa thats ok- just do what works for you!
