Sea Stars Sea, Chanel, T. Rex discussed on Peace Out
Hello. . This is peace out stories for coming down and relaxation. . My name is Chanel. . This season, , we talked about the life cycle of Pebbles Gio, , D- mice, , helium tomatoes trees, , Sea Stars Sea. . Salmon CICADAS and of course, , the T. Rex. . And now we're here. . At the last episode of our fourth season. . And it's all about you. . It's about us. . Human. . Beings. . Sit in a comfortable position. . Rest your hands on your knees. . If, , you'd like to lie down go ahead. . We're GONNA take our time settling into this first part today. . Close Your eyes if you'd like. . Breathing. . In and. . What's going through your mind right now? ? Our minds are always making thoughts. . So. . Sometimes, , it might feel like we're standing in a river. . The thoughts always flowing. . and. . They'll keep flowing and going. . and. . That's okay. . But sometimes it can feel like to watch. . If. We . need a break from the flowing thoughts instead of trying to stop them instead of letting the water carry you away. . There's always the option to. . Step right out of the water. . And sit on the riverbank and have arrest. . You can just sit. . And enjoy watching the water run by. . But you're not feeling the push of it. . Not Worried about where the water's coming from or where it's going. . And then when you're ready and want to get back into the cool water. . You'll be able to play in it and stand strong for longer. . If the flowing river our thoughts. . then. . That little break on the riverbank is mindfulness. . Mindfulness is about staying in the present moment. . Not Thinking about what's happened in the past. . Or worrying about what might happen in the future? ? Just being here. . Now. . Take notice of your breathing right now. . Is it slowing down Or fast. . Is it long and deep. . Or short shallow. . You don't have to change anything about it right now. . Just notice it. . Our brains are always working and making judgments on the information thoughts and experiences coming in. . If you've seen the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory You'll probably remember seen when Ruka Salt Sasi Geese that lay golden inks. . The golden eggs would come down onto the educators scale that would decide whether it was a good egg. . Or A bag. . Well, , of course, , in real life, , there are many more judgments beyond good or bad. . But, , the brain is like that educator. . Taking in each thought and making a quick automatic decision if it likes it and tells us that we should keep looking for these good things or doesn't like it and tells us to avoid these things. . Or maybe our brain is neutral about them. . We don't really have to pay attention or do anything about it. . That brings us to another big part of being mindful. . Letting. . Go of the judgment. . Our brains will always be judging the information coming in. . which is not a bad thing. . Let's say Mr Willy Wonka began noticing that there have been a lot of bad aches lately. . He might wonder. . Why are my kiessling so many bad eggs. . Are They not getting enough healthy food. . Not Enough water. . Maybe, we , should give them more to eat every day or something different to eat on Tuesdays and Thursdays. . Should I get the Olympus to check on the more? ? Are the bad eggs really that bad. . Maybe I need to think about how we measured what good eggs. . And change it. . Or maybe I need to let my geese run freely in a big field and not keep them in this room. .
