[1: 1,990 of 10,000] What I’ve Learned After 110 Days Streak of Meditating

In Journal on April 11, 2020 at 8:00 PM


My longest streak was 115 days then I got too busy to take care of my mindful need, but currently, I’m back on track and in my 110 days streak, and I hope to keep doing it for the rest of my life.

I usually do it after I wake up in the morning. I’m using the Calm app. I started with a guided meditation. I’m now trying to do a timed meditation of 15 minutes meaning just seating in silent on my yoga mat, always in the same place at my living room facing the window, with crossed leg and my thumb and index finger together (see gnome image).

Meditating taught me to find the stillness in my crowded and clouded mind. During the guided meditation, I was given several techniques on how to concentrate on my breathing. If my mind wanders to things that I need to do for the day, for instance, then I was taught to be kind to myself and simply bring back my attention to my breathing. Tamara Levitt has a soothing voice that made me feel cared for, blessed, and loved unconditionally.

Think about it, reality happens right this moment, and then it flees. It’s my mind that remembers that fill me with movies in my head, making the past to be present instead of me making a conscious and deliberate choice to do something new right now.

[1: 1,633 of 10,000] I Am Grateful For The Calm

In Journal on October 27, 2015 at 6:37 AM

Good Day

It’s 6:10 Tuesday morning and I watch the sky turns brighter for the day. I am grateful for the calm, I am truly grateful that I recognise the calm that is building inside of me. I have bended my knees and said my prayer, it got to be a terrific day!

It’s truly fantastic to see the beauty of simple things. I know people have different point of views and I’d like to share my truths.

  1. I went to bed at almost 2ish in the morning, I was full of energy because in the evening, I was fed with a delicious Italian take-out! I was in love with the chicken and mushroom risotto along with Tagliatelle Salmon with Caviar, Formaggi Pizza, and Coke Light. I share the hearty meal with my beloved sissy.
  2. I also finish tons of works that would help out the company where I work before heading to bed. I have such confidence that my load was lesser with the checked items. I am so amazed that my energy level is at the top making me focus so well. I get my hefty salary on time and it is motivating to give back excellence, striving to be great!
  3. I am having a left over couscous and eggs for breakfast and drinking warm and sweet peppermint tea. It’s a blessed food that would give me energy for the morning.
  4. I have a new pillow to sleep on giving me a sweet slumber.
  5. The quiet apartment and gently lit makes my heart smile and feeling loved and serenaded.

I have nothing to complain about but there are much that I can share to the world. 🙂 May you have a ridiculously amazing day.

[1: 1,604 of 10,000] Go Back To The Calm

In Journal on September 29, 2015 at 7:29 AM


I have minor panic attacks or can be simply qualify as a human worrier. It is human to worry and slip every once in a while to think of incidents that never happened and yet scare me when it actually do. My solution is to go back to the calm.

I may have said it a milion times here, in Quora, or even to my friends but going to a relaxed mental state helps.

Breathing and watching it when you do it is a start. Be conscious while you breathe in and out and then let go of everything that is worrying me. Relax by shaking my shoulders and continue to breathe in and out slowly, not hurrying. Smiling helps too knowing that right now I could find peace and forget everything that is bothering me. If a nagging voice arises, smile even more, and then tell it to stay quiet.

How do you calm down?

Too Happy

I have always experienced extreme happiness and I’ve also experience going through a painstaking heartaches for all the wrong reasons and there are some similarities –

  1. If I am extremely happy and if I’m extremely nervous about something negative (yes, I know too that I was seriously guilty), I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t calmly go to bed and enjoy a good slumber, which is important to regain energy and compusure for the following day.
  2. I couldn’t concentrate on one task and I would end up having so many unaccomplish items or I will then become frustrated if I don’t get the important things done.
  3. I have the tendency to tell everyone what I’ve been through, to the person who would be proud of me if I’m happy and to get sympathy when I’m uber down. It’s not always healthy to the point of obsessing of not knowing when to stop.

In both intense moments I feel like I am going to explode and so I would like to share that we always have to find the place that we could stay CALM. It is the key to ensuring that we don’t go insane of being boastful or pitiful and cray-cray.

Although given the choice of being happy or worried, it would be better to be happy. We just have to be careful not to be overly happy that we won’t be in control. Namaste and we should go back in our center.
