What Do You Want to Do For The Rest of Your Life?

In this meditation, we do a reflection to explore our moment-to-moment intuition on what we most want and need.

Let's start by settling into a comfortable posture. This could be sitting, standing, or lying down. If it's comfortable, you can close your eyes. And we'll take a deep breath together. In through the nose.

And slowly out through the mouth. Inviting the jaw to soften. Letting the shoulders be at ease. As well as the hands and the belly. As your body settles in, your breath can return back to its natural rhythm.

And in today's meditation, we're going to focus on following the momentary thread of inspiration. And there are different degrees of inspiration. It's not always this light bulb moment where we go tuck ourselves away in a closet and write a book. Sometimes it's just this feeling of, Oh, this is what I'm interested in right now. Or, this is what I'm inspired to explore.

So as you settle into this place of stillness and being, see if there's a subtle sense of inspiration around how you'd like to practice right now. Are you inspired to focus on the breath? Would you rather be more broad and just rest in awareness? Maybe there's a curiosity about the body and emotion or watching thoughts? The only instruction is to attune yourself to that place within you that knows what it wants to do right now, at least within the context of meditation, and see if you can follow it. There's a lot of freedom here to explore and that's the point. So I'll step out of your way, give you some space in silence and let you have some fun. Talk to you soon.

So as we come to the end of our meditation, let's take one more deep breath together. In through the nose. And slowly out through the mouth. You can start to reorient yourself to the the space around you. And when you're ready, allow your eyes to open again.

Good job. So as you go about the rest of your day, the rest of your week, and even the rest of your life, see if you can attune yourself more to the momentary thread of inspiration. Sometimes we have a sense of what we want to do for a long period of time. But a lot of times, it's a matter of feeling into what's here now and what do I feel inspired to do? That could be big picture, what do I feel inspired to do with my life? And it could be small, what do I feel inspired to do within my meditation? This is a powerful strategy for living a more attuned and intuitive life. So thank you for your practice.

I'll talk to you soon. Until we speak again, take care.
