Fragments of me

Our mind, body and soul are all fragments of our being which should work in sync but this is not always the case.

Sometimes your mind and body are in different places and it can be difficult to regain control. It’s almost as if a part of you is missing…

These are the times we need to remember to give our minds a rest, even though this can be extremely difficult. Find a method that suits you, be it meditation, exercise or even writing.

Just free your mind so it can reconnect…

Suki… X!

    Relaxing through doing yoga or just writing whatever comes to your mind is a nice form of relaxation so people must learn to take things easy and not be hasty about everything. Cheers!

    Happens to me, but not because of loneliness, it is more because of tireness or over thinking, but i believe it works the same way with lonelyness🌸☀️Great post, thank you for sharing🌈🧘‍♀️

  4. Hi Suki, it’s me! Your virtual internet chemistry lab partner and cocktail buddy! Hope you’re doing well today.

    I love your advice to give our minds some rest now and then. I find a lot of comfort and rest when I am able to get out into the wilderness to meditate on the approaching mountain lions. Apart from meditating in nature, writing seems to help me quite a bit. Odd that, since my meditative technique is to still or quiet my thoughts while my writing seems to prompt them. Go figure!

    By the way, do you practice any Eastern forms of meditation? You don’t quite say. If not, may I recommend for you Zen? By which I mean the traditional Japanese form where the master walks up behind you and smacks you with a stick if he or she thinks you’re not doing it right. I figure it was practically designed for miscreants like you! Me, I only require more gentle forms and practices.

    Last, it’s quite an interesting thought that an absent mind can make us feel alone. By which I think you mean “lonely”? That’s a new thought to me, so I’m going to take my time mulling it over. It has the ring of truth to it. Thanks for the fodder!

      Erm… I might give Zen a miss! 😂 … There’s not much wilderness where I live but I do like long walks with my dog, that rests the mind as long as dog stays calm (we have to avoid other dogs, cats, squirrels, birds & even men!) the rest he doesn’t mind! So that’s really relaxing! 😫… Maybe I’ll try walking with the kids – actually that’ll probably be worse, they just fight eachother! … So just me & hubby then – that’ll work 💕

      1. “Just hubby” sounds great! Growing up, there was a couple who took a half hour to an hour walk every evening after supper, weather permitting. Saw them now and then for years. Always, always engaged in animated, lively conversation. Don’t know for sure if the walks had anything to do with it, but I can suppose the changing scenery did in fact help them keep a conversation going. They weren’t at all like the couples who sat in silence in the restaurants with lifeless expressions on their faces.

    This is so important. Being tired all the time, forcing ourselves to work when we’re exhausted and not giving our mind enough time is the first thing that leads to mental and physical deterioration ! Nice post ❤️

    Oh boy, Suki! You’ve just described where I’ve just been. My sanity is found in my camera and Mother Nature. And music. Just one visit to a forest for a few hours and I can “feel” my mind returning. Beautiful post and I really thank you!! 🦋🦋🦋

    I’ve come to realise in recent years that writing is my escape – my place to get away from everything surrounding me. I guess for most people the problem is finding that thing – the thing that works for them.

  11. I’m learning how to meditate, and all of the research says that meditation creates connections between the 2 hemispheres in the brain. We become more creative, and we problem solve more efficiently. I know my creative right hemisphere could use a work out. We also experience rest that is 5 times deeper than sleep.

      3. It can be an intense experience. The first session unearthed a lot of emotions. I’m conflicted about how I would communicate that idea to others.
