Day 21 – Being Still

For more info about this series please go to https://wordpress.com/post/catherinestrang.com/1455 This post takes a minute to read and the exercise is of your choice.

This is the last post of the mind segment of 28 Days to Being Peaceful and it’s a short one. If you wish to, all there is to do today is focus on the concept of stillness, what is it like to have a mind that is still?

Sit with this for a few minutes, perhaps say to yourself, “My mind is still” and observe what arises, what thoughts, questions, feelings, visualisations, self concepts rise up? See if you can simply acknowledge what arises then let it go and come back to “My mind is still”.

If you find you need more help then just repeat one of the exercises or meditations of the past few days. Perhaps try a few of the quieting the mind tips, the My Truth Is… exercise or one of the meditations from this week, please find links below to these.

ENGAGING THE WITNESS MEDITATION
CLEAR, CALM MIND MEDITATION

Published by Catherine Strang

I have been passionate about health and well-being since my teenage years when a health problem prompted me to use diet to regain my strength. By the end of the 80's I was working as a chef in a Rudolf Steiner based vegetarian cafe in Edinburgh and this led me (through working with some very alternatives types!) to pursue a career as a massage therapist and healer, which I began in 1990. Since then I have trained in many different forms of therapy, including Hypnotherapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming), EmoTrance (a form of deeply mindful emotional processing). I retired completely from bodywork in 2017 and at present only occasionally work as a 1:1 therapist. My focus now is teaching and I have been doing this since 1991 when I taught Aromatherapy and massage courses for the Edinburgh Council Adult Education Programme, by the time I finished these courses in 2000 I had also taught aromatherapy/massage sessions across Edinburgh in Community Centers, Health Projects and a variety of other non profit organisations. By this time however I was beginning to develop Stress Management and later Meditation and personal development courses/sessions and was including corporate settings as well as private teaching events. The list of places I have taught in is extensive and over the past three decades I've no doubt forgotten quite a few! I am dedicated to personal development, health and meditation and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to each session. I am well aware of the struggles, often hidden from work colleagues, that many go through during the course of their life and endeavor always to be kind, non-intrusive and in a work setting discreet.
