One of the greatest feelings of meditation is once you get to that point of relaxation. It’s the point where you’re completely relaxed and your worries and stressors are behind you at the moment.
When I meditated today, I was practicing the Shuni Mudra, which is when your thumb touches your middle finger. There are so many mudras to practice when you meditate and they all mean something different. Anyway, while I was meditating, I was so deep into my meditation that even though my thumb and middle fingers were touching each other, I could not feel them in the least bit. During that state, my breathing became a lot steadier and smoother and I didn’t have to try so hard. I just sat back and enjoyed my meditation. Of course, I don’t always get to this point in my meditation. Some days my mind wanders so much and it’s nearly impossible to block everything out. But the idea is to practice every day because it will get easier and you will be able to keep that moment of peace longer and longer. Especially after practicing yoga, you just feel so much more rejuvenated and ready to tackle the rest of your day, thinking, “I can conquer anything”.
Do what makes you happy in life. That’s what it always comes down to.
