I am on a meditation retreat in Spain, and would love to share my experience so far. I arrived on October 1st and today is day 19. Retreats are so important to me and my well-being. I feel like I found myself all over again. I have changed in so many ways. The last 18 days have been all about letting go. Letting go of the past and the future. Finding myself resting in the present moment here and now. Its like peeling away the layers of conditioned stories, no need to fix just let go. All that matters is right here and now. Its so simple. :) In this moment all that is there is freedom, clarity, peace, evolving and joy.
We have just passed the halfway point for this retreat, its 30 days long and I feel so alive.
The days are full and time goes fast. My physical body has changed also, with yoga twice a day and all vegetarian food, I feel cleansed, leaner, and stronger. My body is very happy.
I have cried a little and slept alot and meditated more than I ever have before, and found so much peace. I met so many beautiful people that will be friends forever. Meditation is 3 times a day and sometimes more. I find myself craving the silence and stillness. I feel rejuvenated! When I first arrived I released a lot from my nervous system and I still am releasing everyday. But peace just comes to me. Its all good, releasing frees my spirit to be just me. Its like a breathe of fresh air that washes away all that no longer serves me and I look forward to every single day. All that matters is now, now, now. How refreshing is that.
Peace to you all and read about my retreat next month. Its going to be Ohmazing!!
Retreats are a blessing for the body, mind and spirit, harmonizing and balancing life.
