wooden dock in the town of Placencia, Belize; where I’ve been staying for a
week. The edge of my mat is a few feet from the lagoon and as I practice my yoga, I am completely aware of the beauty surrounding me: the exotic birds, the calm water and the brilliant blue sky that reminds me of how vast this world truly is. After about 30 minutes, I am beading with sweat and begin to cool down with a short but powerful meditation. I sit with my eyes closed and simply allowed the whispers of the Universe be my source of focus. Today, I was able to allow my mind and body to drift into a place of well-deserved relaxation.
But more often than not, I can’t seem to settle down. Instead, whether I’m
trying to meditate or not, my mind chooses to remind me of past situations and future events that usually cause me some type of anxiety or fear. It natters from beneath my thick hair, scalp and skull; distracting me from the present moment, where I generally feel at peace. My mind and I have recently gotten into a love/hate relationship with the constant conversation that zooms around my head.
