Today Miriam talks about what she has been learning at her weekly class at the mind and body institute. She has been finding out different techniques she can use to manage herself and feel whole. Such as eating mindfully, creating, meditations and more. In this episode she shares what she has learnt about forgiveness, of others and of yourself.
- It’s been really helpful for Miriam to learn the various techniques, it has been helping her know what tools she has to manage her life, especially in regards to emotions and mindfulness.
- This past weeks session was about spirituality and the second task they focused on was forgiveness meditation. It was such a powerful thing for Miriam to discover which is why she wants to share it with others.
- Forgiveness Meditation:
- Sit comfortably and close your eyes, imagine a chair opposite you, put someone you need to forgive in that chair. Tell them what you forgive them for. Once you have told them this, bring them closer to your heart. You can also use this technique to ask for forgiveness from others and to forgive yourself.
“I have different ways to express them”
“It was so powerful, I cried the whole time”
