During the 21-Day Meditation Challenge offered by The Chopra Center, there was one specific meditation that impacted my thinking. It was a meditation where I focused on my ideas of “owning”. The main question that I “lightly” thought about during the meditation was, “what do I own?” The answers could be tangible and intangible objects; materials, emotions, characteristics, responsibilities, roles, etcetera.
I focused on the material objects because the physical objects are easiest for me to describe. In my head, I went from room to room in my house and visualized looking at all of my belongings. As I was visualizing this, another question was, “why do I own these items, and do those items still serve that purpose for me?”
As I ended this meditation, I had more respect and appreciation for myself, my hard work (which has helped me pay for the items), and each item.
Today, I will be going through each room in my house and gathering all those items that are not serving their purpose for me anymore. What a great way to Spring clean my house and my soul.
