Good Morning Everyone! Happy Hump Day to you all!
Last night I had some pretty violent dreams, and it wasn’t just one dream. It was as if every traumatic situation in my past was attacking me. I woke up to some of my pillows on the floor and twisted up covers all over my bed, and my nightshirt was soaked in sweat. My breathing was erratic, and I was so utterly shaken.
The one dream that I remember waking up to was, I was still living in the transitional housing program, and the roommate that I had was still attacking me. I could almost feel the punches exploding.
Once I realized that this was a nightmare, and wasn’t really happening again, I tried really, really hard to calm my breathing, and grasp that I was in a safe environment.
I then immediately Googled my way to search for my meditation by Jason Stephenson in order to regroup, and gain some composure. I’m so glad that I did. I took my medication before I began to play it, but I just leaned back and listened to his voice talking me down from feeling like I was crawling the walls.
Although the dream is still remembered because of it’s nature, this video did help my breathing and at least calm the anxiety that I was feeling.
I know meditation doesn’t work for many people, but it helps me at least calm myself down from feeling hopeless during moments I feel like I’m losing control. I feel as if I gain a little of myself back again when I meditate, which I try to do at least 2-3 times a day.
Now, that I’m a bit more relaxed. I’m gonna take a step back and make myself a well-deserved cup of coffee and read a bit before I begin my day.
Take Care & God Bless,
