Do you ever get lost in thought during meditation? Does your mind wander or get caught up with the details of your day?
If so, you’re not alone.
One of the most common challenges most meditators face is our tendency to get distracted and lose focus.
As we do the practice, we often get caught up with the thoughts that arise in our heads. We fixate on certain ideas or try to work out problems.
And sooner or later, we find that we’ve gotten on board a particular train of thought and are now more focused on our minds than on the meditation itself.
The good news is that there’s a remedy for a distracted mind in meditation.
In this 15-minute guided meditation, I guide you through a simple practice of relinquishing your fixation on the mind so that the easeful awakeness that is your natural state can come to the foreground of your attention.
