Monkey Mind - We all have times when life is hitting us from many directions. Our minds are running wild. Today, I introduce what I call an EME or Extroverted Meditation Experience.
Right now or some time today practice finding an object (in yoga called a Drishti) as a focal point. That means scan your environment, spot a stable object in the room or in thewild and give it your full attention. Study it by its shape, color, function and any other way you might describe it.
* For parents, this is a great tool for bringing our children out of their heads. Point to something and have them describe it or how it makes them feel. The reaction is not what we are looking for, simply the practice of extroverting their attention.
