Meditation: Calm, Daily Calm with Tamara Levitt: Self Trust
Length: 10 minutes
Where: North Hollywood Park, Los Angeles
How It Felt: Cleansing
I’m actually writing this blog from the park, as I take a little break from running errands to breathe in some fresh air and soak up the sunshine. It’s an absolutely gorgeous day.
I’m still experiencing a lot of fatigue from my vaccine, but starting to feel a bit more energy today, which is good, since I’m getting on a plane tomorrow morning. Lots to do, still need to pack and get everything squared away. I’m always a last minute packer- I just can’t do it early! I have no idea why, but it’s impossible.
I chose the Daily Calm meditation today for simplicity’s sake. I didn’t have the bandwidth to pick the absolute perfect meditation for my tired brain, so I went with the easiest to find. I sat in the sunshine, closed my eyes, and let my body fill up with sweet air. It was nice to pause in the middle of a hectic time. It always is.
The session touched on self trust- why we lose it, why it’s important, and ways to get it back. To be totally honest, self trust is probably one of my greatest strengths. I’ve been charting my own course for so long, I’ve had no choice but to trust myself fully. My gut instinct is pretty sharp. I don’t beat myself up over setbacks, but make a point to learn from them and take the blessings where I can.
Still, it’s nice to be reminded how important this is in life. I still question myself sometimes when I know better, still hesitate when I don’t need to. And I want to be able to help others strengthen their ability to do so as well.
But the big benefit from today was simply stopping to breathe. Pausing. Taking in the clear, bright blue sky, the buzzing bees, the bright green grass and singing birds.
Peace where we can find it.
