Thoughts during or after the 100 day challenge?

Recommended Posts

I`m only on day 10 , I really loved the gratitude on day 7 . I was at home with a cold and  it put me into a different perspective. Being grateful just for a warm bed and for my breath . The time seem stopped for a moment so I can readjust my attitude.  With the  100 day meditation challenge I'm  feeling  gradually paying more attention to the moments that are happening front of me , and at the same time I'm forming new habits too. Started a gratitude journal too .

Very simple exercises but powerful. Thank you .

I meditate every day at this time.  My experience as I continue to meditate each day is freedom of the mind.  Comfort of control.  Owning my space in the universe.  If I do not meditate things get clogged and too much.  I have to go back and meditate.  then and only then I feel I am right with everything.  I began this when I had children.   One is autistic and it took a lot of energy.  

Breathing meditation alone gave me energy to get things done.  Moving through the day.  When I couldn't I would get sick.  Just my experience with life meditation.  

I love this community.  Wish I knew about it sooner.  Now is still a great time.  I am grateful.

Hi, I just signed up for the 100 day challenge. I did a 30 day self imposed meditation challenge and completed it except for one day. I have had several missed days recently due to the holidays and being too busy, so I am hoping putting myself to the next level, I will stick more to it. I am not very mindful even with meditation, but I can really tell when I have not been focused on it. I know my family relationships are better and I am not quite so impulsive and emotionally off track. I do have to do it daily, no question about it!

That's great!! Keep us posted on how it goes. And congrats on accomplishing 29/30 days meditating! Even when we struggle to remain focused/mindful, just carving out that time is beneficial I think.

Although I do a meditation it is sporadic since breaking my foot for the third time.  So this is my first day and I love it already.  simple and easy.  I will add it into my Qigong practice.  Thank you for the accountability.  I am really loving this mindfulness community.

I am not sure what is going on, all of a sudden I am not receiving any of the emails for the 100 day Challenge.  Any ideas?  I resigned up last night so maybe i will be in again.  

Hey Paige,

That is strange! I wonder if something got accidentally flagged and sent to junk (I've done this before without realizing it). Have you checked there? Let me know if they're appearing again and if not, I'll check in with @Sean Fargo.

    • I was fortunate to be introduced to Rebirthing-Breathwork when I was 19 y/o, and that was 30 years ago. It changed my life, I was starting to drink excessively, and it was either keep drinking or Breathwork. I glad I chose the second.  Over the year, I practiced and got certified in different Breathwork modalities,  Holotropic Breathwork, Rebirthing, Transformational, Vivation, etc. They all have something in common, and that is Conscious Connected Breathing, connecting the inhale and the exhale without a pause.  It’s very powerful, it’s active, and it’s safe. It’s allowing the life force to take over, allowing me to be one with the Divine, knowing that I’m always safe. It’s having an experience that I am one with it, the all. 
    • Hi everyone, I will soon be starting a course with Isa Gucciardi and so will be reading her book, 'Coming to Peace.' If anyone is interested in reading this as well, let me know and I will lead a book club for it.  Here is a short description of the book: "Coming to Peace is a hybrid conflict resolution method that was born out of core mediation practices from a variety of earth-based wisdom traditions and Buddhism. The essence of resolution lies in the recognition of the deep and unbroken connectedness that we share as human beings. This book shows how the processes of Coming to Peace meet those in conflict and provides them a pathway to reconciliation and wholeness."

    • This week's question was inspired by a thread started by one of our members, Rick. The question is: What does this photograph bring up for you? First, set a timer for two or three minutes. Gaze into this photo and all of its elements with openness and curiosity. Note what stands out to you. Note what it brings up. Then, I invite you to share your answers to any or all of the following questions:   What was the first thing to draw your attention in this photo? What emotions were you aware of while looking at this photo? Does this photo remind you of anything? What does your heart have to say about this photo?   Photo by Robert Lukeman on Unsplash    
    • Hi @rachelnward, I will send you a direct message to see if we can get those emails flowing again 🙂
    • @Rachel - thank you for sharing your blog. I read it and much of it resonated with me - from the blend of emotions that arise in response to the world to our fundamental interconnectedness and in-between. A couple of things that I'd like to share more about in response to your words: You wrote, "Perhaps it will come in the form of my own children and their awareness and contributions," which touches on something I often reflect on. That is, we cannot know the downstream consequences of our actions, and children are a wonderful example of this. Let's say we raise a child and through our teachings, they develop a deep commitment to the soil... or to animals... or to humans, whatever it may be. They will go out into the world and bring that with them, adding their own heart to it, expressing that love and commitment in their own way. And then they may have children, sharing the same teachings and values. In this way, we can see that the ripple is infinite - and, it can be conceptualized in all forms of relationship, not just parent-child relationships. When we envision our actions in this way, we can see that everything matters, even the smallest acts of kindness, forgiveness, generosity. I also like how you note some of the different forms that mindfulness and compassion can take for you. I think this is such an important reminder - that we can each contribute mindfully in our own ways. And again, as you said, the fruits of those mindful contributions could be known or unknown. Thank you as always for your lovely words!
