    Shanthi meditation - I chose this one because of the excess heat. After the meditation I felt
    thebody heat was down to a greater extent.15 minutes enough for shanthi, otherwise we may feel
    shiver in winter times.

    SKY meditation - I did with the meditation group, focussed on breath and immersed in it
    Aug 3
    Thuriyam meditation - Today I chose this, because I couldn`t join the group for SKY. Only short time
    around 15 minutes.

    This thread eliminates my laziness and gives me commitment to do each day without break.

    Day 4 : Skipped. I realised skipping mourning routine is not good. I thought I'll do bedtime meditation but it just didn't work out.

    Day 5 : 5th August 2021
    Time: 5 45am to 5:55 am
    Experience: So tried without music. Put a timer n just sat calmly . Was able to be with my breaths with mind wandering here n there for a bit. But overall improving :)
    Contemplating whether I'll do with music or should I go few more sessions like this without music.

    Day: 5
    Date: August 5, 2021
    Time: 6:31 a.m. to 6:47 a.m.
    Duration: 16 minutes
    Experience: Focus on acceptance as a theme with watching inhalation and exhalation. This results in disturbing worries are dropped at the beginning of the meditation. I am noticing those problems are getting resolved without associated worries in the last 5 days. At least there is a lesson to my mind that worries have no connection to the problem resolution. Fine and rhythemic breath for good 10+ minutes. 4 inhalation, retention and exhalation cycle per minute. Today, I experienced body temperature lowering.

    Day: 6
    Date: August 6, 2021
    Time: 6:22 a.m. to 6:38 a.m.
    Duration: 16 minutes
    Experience: Sitting on the ground was not an option for me for a long time. But now, I am able to comfortably seated and not experience hip pain or legs falling asleep. However, meditation time is considerably less now when compared to what I was used to earlier. Continued acceptance as a theme with focus on breath cycle. No sustained thoughts lingering in mind. Thoughts did come but left my mind quickly. Towards the end of the session, I felt rhythemic breathing with a lot calmer mind. That calmer mind and freshness I feel after the session itself is worth doing it everyday besides targeted purpose. It didn't feel like I was with closed eyes and focused on breathing for good 16 minutes.

    SKY meditation with the group. Rhythmic breathing brought me some solace after heated argument with DH.
