Writing about meditation
The three activities we did was breathing, then we were told a story, and lastly wave relaxation. First was breathing,when we tried breathing you breathed in through your nose and out your mouth, but it also came from your tummy. The second activity was our story. We were told a story and were to picture the story of ourselves in our head took our sadness and turned them into rocks and threw them into a lake, and we turned our happiness into flowers. We The third activity we did was a lady telling us a story having us relax starting from our head to our toes trying to put us asleep.we did was, we were told a story and the picture it in our minds and we were taken through a garden to throw our sadness away and our happy thoughts were turned into flowers. The third activity we tried was wave relaxation, while wave relaxation we were told to relax to fall asleep.
Before the meditation session started i was excited to see how it worked. During the activities I began to feel relaxed and i was not thinking about anything. I would try meditating again because it is very relaxing and soothing, and i would also like to try it by myself. Trying by myself would be more quiet and i could probably think better.
