8 Minute Meditation – Round 2 – Week 2

This is now my 2nd go of the 2nd week of Victor Davich’s , “8 Minute Meditation” by Victor Davich.  A week ago, I decided to start the process over from week one and see where this next 8 weeks takes me.

I’m not doing as well as I thought I would.   Keeping to a schedule of daily meditation is still not a habit I am religiously keeping.  There have been more days of practice than I’ve skipped, but I’m not nearly doing as well as I have been on the first go the 8 week program.

8 Minute Meditation – Round 2 – Week 1

Because of all the challenges this week, I’ve decided that I need to try something little different with my  8 Minute Meditation.

This week was also very surprising.  I found that sometimes you find exactly what you need exactly when you need it.

8 Minute Meditation – Week 4

Today was a great day for meditation.  In fact, I enjoyed it so much, I did my  “8 Minute Meditation” not once, but twice!   We’ll get to why in a moment because I want to lay out what this week’s practice is.

Week 4 is called “This Magic Moment”, and this is exactly what I experienced today.   This week, I’ve been practicing labeling the thought that enter my mind while meditating as “past” or “future”.   The “present” is now, and that is where you want to be, present, aware, and a part of this “Magic Moment”.

So why was my “Magic Moment” so powerful that I doubled up on my meditation?
