Mindfulness With Curiosity and Wonder

Learn how to bring curiosity, vitality, joy and wonder into your meditation and into your life.

So becoming settled in for this meditation. Allowing your eyes to gently close. And as a support to arriving here a little more fully, just taking three deep, slow, full breaths now. So breathing in, and really filling the lungs with air on the inhale. And then exhaling, and can you get a sense of allowing any tension or tightness to soften? As you let go of the breath, just letting go of that tension.

And two more breaths in the same way. Letting go of the breath on the exhale, letting go of any tension in the body as best you can. And as you exhale, just let go of any control of the breath now. Just letting the breath fall into its own natural rhythm. I continuing to tune into the feeling of the breath in the body.

Feeling the flow of the breathing. And can you get a sense of feeling the breath in the body now as if it was the first breath you ever felt, or maybe the last breath you were ever going to breathe? So meeting the breath with this curiosity, this openness. Noticing everything you can about the experience of breathing. Just letting it absorb your attention. So the breath is something we so easily take for granted and overlook, but isn't it a miracle that right now the body is breathing and it would be false to say that you are breathing.

The body's breathing for you. It's keeping you alive with it's gentle rhythmic flow into and out of the body. And each breath is completely unique and it's also fleeting. It'll only be breathed once. So seeing if you can feel each breath fully.

And each moment of our lives, just like each breath, is unique and repeatable and fleeting. Each moment will only be lived once. So by bringing curiosity and wonder back into our moments, we live our lives more fully. So perhaps making an intention to bring curiosity out of this practice and into your life today. Knowing that when you do that, you also invite in vitality, upliftment, and joy.

So as this practice finishes, taking a deep breath in. And as you let it go, begin to wriggle fingers and toes. And when you're ready, opening the eyes. And wishing you ease and happiness in the day ahead.
