Wrong direction

I enjoyed the speakers relaxing voice. However her technique did not help me relax. I feel that she encouraged me to keep focusing on the negative thoughts and pressure, rather than just observing them and letting them go. Ideally, she would instruct us to return our focus to the breathing and let go of the “pressure” (or just ignore it and let it be). Otherwise, if one continues to FEEL the pressure, it will bring more energy to the pressure (instead of drawing energy and attention AWAY from it). I am not suggesting one should suppress the pressure feelings, but we should not give it that much attention either. Returning to the breath is ideal. (as per Deepak Chopra and other wise meditators)

I think of her advice all day long!

I can hear her saying "things can be accomplished in a relaxed manner..." And I start to believe that maybe the high tension stress mode way of doing things is not the only way! But that's not what we are taught. We are taught to fight and stress and look busy. This mediation is good for so many issues. Not just stress. I am going to actually buy their other offerings.

I can finally sleep

For the past few weeks, I hadn't been sleeping,
And when I did sleep during that time, it was no longer than 4 hours. These hours were non consecutive hours also. I used this for the first time the other night and I fell asleep within 10 minutes. It's amazing! It calms me nearly immediately. I would recommend this to anybody who want to "take a break".
