This is a loaded statement.
The elephant in the room that people are not comfortable talking about is death.
I believe that anyone who is traveling on a late-stage cancer road, death is a conversation they are willing to have.
Or at least that is my experience.
Mind you, not everyone wants to hear what I have to say about it. And sometimes I walk away, biting my tongue because of the uneasiness that it has caused.
People who know me well will confirm that.
I am always an open book.
If you don’t want to hear my opinion, you shouldn’t ask me.
My argument if I really need one,
is it is time to understand more, so that we may be fearless?
When I say understand more, I’m not saying my thinking is right or wrong.
It is merely what I have found to be the truth for myself.
How do we understand our fear or at least accept our fear?
What brings me peace when I think of my fear “death” as my example won’t necessarily feel the same for you.
I have learned to develop an inner-peace through my experience.
Over time I’ve found what works for me. I refer to it as “my personal way” of mediation.
This is the beautiful thing about meditating —
It is what you decide it is for you.
Sitting still in a room and trying to meditate has never worked for me.
A few years ago, I noticed that when I was disconnected or found myself in an unfamiliar physical space– my thoughts were less restricted.
I was training my mind to way to drift into a different place.
When I have the opportunity to be in the silence of nature, my own meditation process becomes very natural.
Laying in an MRI machine is obviously the furthest thing from being in the great outdoors.
But I’ve learned to trick my brain.
Whatever it takes to “let go,” this is when my mind clears of the everyday thoughts.
I begin by moving my thoughts to gratitude.
I use memories that bring my loving, grateful, and peaceful moments.
This helps my mind to go from one grateful thought to another.
Each time I’ve had the opportunity to travel, I collect memories specifically to recall for a needed time.
This works well for me.
When I need to, I can mentally and emotionally travel to different destinations by using my memories.
This is what calms me.
I use this method when I undergo cancer testing and scans.
The times when I need to release anxiety.
I have noticed that when I’ve completed my own meditative experience, I often have my best ideas come to mind.
When I’ve needing to reach out to a family member or friend. Not knowing how to handle a situation.
It is very affirming to me that I have reset my mind and spirit and am ready for comes next.
Again, there is no right or wrong way to meditate.
You don’t need to call it meditation.
Do the discovery that is waiting for you. It is there for you to reach out and touch it.
Your personal journey to experiencing inner peace.
