    Open to the Present Moment

    Open to the Present Moment

    Hi friends! 

    Today I'll guide you through an open attention practice, and this is perfect for you to pause for a few minutes minutes and notice the present moment.

    Open your awareness to whatever arises: thoughts, sensations, emotions, sounds, smells. And meet whatever comes with kindness.

    Take good care of you,

    Manuela

    Exploring Your Self-Critic

    Exploring Your Self-Critic

    Hi friends!

    In this guided meditation we will explore our self-critic. 

    We will start by bringing awareness to our breath or to the sounds around us, and then evolve to notice our self-critical thoughts.

    We can use mindfulness to be aware when we have those self-critical voices and bring a sense of kindness towards ourselves, and this will increase our ability to regulate emotions.

    We use mindfulness practice to not judge ourselfs, to not judge ourselfs for being judgmental, and just noticing judging. 

    And PLEASE don't forget to bring a kind attitude to yourself for the judging thoughts, if they are present.

    Take good care of you,

    Manuela

    Hi friends! This is a short practice to invite compassion for ourselves.

    As human beings we all have moments of difficulty, challenge, or suffering. 

    Take a moment to acknowledge the difficulties you've experienced or are experiencing now in your life and to feel compassion.

    Simplesmente Parar

    Simplesmente Parar

    Mindfulness é ter atenção ao que se está a passar dentro e fora de nós no momento presente. E isto começa como uma coisa muito simples: Uma pausa. 

    Nesta meditação convido-te a parar. A carregar no botão da pausa por uns minutos, e a notar como é estar totalmente presente neste momento. Toma bem conta de ti!

    PS. - First meditation in Portuguese! I hope you enjoy it!
