Moving Toward Acceptance

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to your Daily Mindfulness. In today's session, we're going to talk about acceptance specifically, I'm going to give you a three-part practice that you can move toward greater acceptance. So we can do this together. If you feel inspired to do so, you can close your eyes. And I invite you to ask yourself, What do I know to be true right now that I don't want to accept? What do I know to be true that I don't want to accept? As you bring this to mind, just notice your body tensing around this resisting.

And just invite it to soften. That's the second step, softening the body into this reality. And then say to yourself, I can't change this moment, but I can meet it with grace. I am held and supported by something bigger than myself. I am safe and I will get through this.

I can't change this reality, but I can meet it with grace. I am held by something bigger than myself. In this moment I am safe and I will get through this. And just feel yourself relaxing into the truth of what is here. When you're ready, if your eyes have been closed, you can open them.

Thanks for engaging in that. That's a simple thing that you can do throughout the day. When you find yourself resisting the truth of what is here. Often, what you'll see is that the body has a reaction in response to it. There's the truth, and then the body tensing.

So by inviting it to soften into the experience, it helps the mind soften into the experience. And then there's just some, some gentle self-talk reminding us that we're safe, we can hold this, we can be with this. Who we are is bigger than this momentary experience. So you can bring this into your day in a way that feels meaningful to you. We'll continue the exploration of, uh, acceptance in our meditation.

So thanks for your practice and let's settle in.
