I think I might make this a 30 day practice. It’s difficult for me to sit still while trying to meditate. And this did not feel like 13 minutes long. But here’s a still from that. I can’t tell you much about how I felt through this meditation. This was the second try at it because the first did not film everything. So I can’t tell if I felt more performative or less so. I tried not to be. I tried to keep most of the movement at the same pace with suspension in different positions. I found this moment to be interesting because my body formed a heart in front of my throat (chakra). From what I read about the what the throat chakra represents, communicating authentically and realizing my purpose was what spoke to me the most as those are two things that have been on my mind.

Hit the road today to spend some time on the #oregoncoast . It was beautiful - 75 degrees, perfect fall beach weather.
I love capturing my dogs in the places we explore together. Most of what I post here, though, is that one capture I got after hundreds or thousands of captures that missed the mark. Part of that is because these fur babies are constantly moving. Here’s one that missed the mark a little but also defines my boys so perfectly I couldn’t help but share it! 🐾🐾🖤

I’ve been languishing in and out of depression for years now. It’s kept me on the outside of my life. Never quite able to to fully engage and commit to anything or anyone before this dark blanket covered everything
After many attempts at dealing with this
With limited success. I decided to give Vedic Meditation a try
It was it’s simplicity that threw me at first.
But Andres has a wonderful way of explaining why, and how important that is for it to have the effect it does. His wit & insightful support has helped me understand my condition more like “something I wear , rather than something I’m confined to”
I’m noticing more and more that my symptoms arise when I’m not being honest and attentive To my own needs. Exploring my own interests
And focusing on what brings me alive.
Vedic meditation has given me a graceful way back to myself. And I’m thankful for being here for the first time in a long time.

One thing I have struggled with, with my MS is balance, especially when I’m riding. Tonight, @squareknothorses told me to close my eyes as I loped circles around the barrels. I did. Luckily I also trust my horse...that helps. •Closing your eyes helps “feel” more as well as with balance & timing. I’m going to start doing it more often. Working on those things that seem so small, help with the big picture. •The first 3 videos are me riding with my eyes closed. This was also a good reminder to me of just how broke my horse is & how good she is at her job. •The last video is of loping Mocha thru. I rarely work her on barrels but it’s been a while since she’s been on them &....she just LOVES her job, so Freaking. Much....she was happy to just get to lope them, although She probably would’ve been happier if I would let her run them, but slow work is important. •Huge Thanks to Lynz @squareknothorses for all the help & support. #brn4d #barrelhorse #ballygirlsmocha #barrelracing #ms #mswarrior #squareknotperformancehorses #eyesclosed #mschallenges
