Allow your body to feel content and peace through this guided meditation led by Julie Potiker. She completes the meditation with her own poem, "Unbuckle".Unbuckle by Julie Potiker This morning as I lay in bed I heard from my left hip flexor, it had a high pitched tone, too tightly strungThen my right ankle joined the songThen my left toeI rolled onto my belly and imagined unbuckling my hips Unbuckling my ankles Dragging my arms down to my sides I unbuckled my shoulders Has anyone ever written about unbuckling the heart, I wondered? Unbuckling the heart, Letting the disappointment flow out of the chambers The sadness and grief tucked into the mitral valve might need a little scraping to flush it out The existential angst at all that is lost every day in our human familyThat blows away in places like Kentucky and the Philippines this timeNext time some other village or town will lose to nature - our blue marble in danger making itself known again and again After the heart is unbuckled, and drained into the river, there is room for the packages to arrivePrecious squares of moments intentionally wrapped and delivered to you, from the person that knows you best  Unwrap the smile you remember in a child’s eyesUnwrap the light flashing on the waterUnwrap the wind blowing through the mountain treesUnwrap your unique pearls of awe Unwrap the truth that love resides hereGet the latest on mindfulness and meditation by subscribing to Julie Potiker's YouTube channel and Facebook page at Mindful Methods for Life.You can learn about mindfulness at www.MindfulMethodsForLife.com and also in Julie's newly released book, "Life Falls Apart, But You Don't Have To: Mindful Methods For Staying Calm In The Midst Of Chaos", available on Amazon.com.
