This is the guided metta meditation I attempted to do this morning. It was about 30 mins. Around min 15 I had this excruciating biting pain on my eyelid and I just had to stop. :(
It didn’t go as well as I had hoped. My mind was all over the place. Thinking about him, medical school interviews, getting a job at LA Fitness etc. Basically all the things the meditation is suppose to help eliminate.
The good thing is I didn’t get angry at myself when this happened I just let my mind wander and gently brought myself back to the present moment when I could.
I felt that this meditation didn’t have as much guidance as I would like being a beginner as all. I’m going to try to find one that does to at least help me stay focus on monks words.
Anyways I still do feel better overall even with that little bit of meditation that I did manage to do. :) Give it a try! Let me know how it goes. :))
