Mindful Moments
This is a practice in concentration. We know that every 6-7 seconds, the mind will be distracted - and here's a technology for bringing it back.  With practice, you'll build focus and actually change your brain capacity to concentrate. Do what you will with that power! More from your guide and friend, Lauren, at www.laurenziegler.com.

This helps when I get distracted by the sounds around me while I’m trying to get work done! Focusing on breathing centers me and brings me back to the task I am trying to complete.

Refocused
I can simply acknowledge and name a sound or distraction, taking away it's power to interfere with my meditation time. I needed this information this morning. I was trying to meditate with a dog who felt an open hand on my knee meant I was lonely and my empty hand needed to be filled with her snout.

I am trying to not Judge myself and my wandering mind or thoughts. Yet only when a speaker is asking as much as she was to bring attention back to your breath was I even aware how often I caught myself drifting from it. 🧘🏼‍♀️😌🔅

Breathing
My mind goes a million miles and hour and I need to just slow down and be mindful that I’m breathing. Something I take for granted daily has such an effect on my stress level and how I’m feeling mentally. I just need to tape a breath every now and then.
J
Justine
Attention
Do we ever give our full attention, single minded thoughts. Mine can flit around like a fantail, always moving, probing and searching. Scenes explode behind close eyelids, living life times in minutes and then I stop. A scene or object freezes and I examine it, move around it or get close to it, exploring its detail. A moment in true clarity, it’s essence in front of me, I then thank it and again I move on.

My First Meditation 🧠👍
Envisioning my expectent worries and, subsequently, focusing on my breathing was an excellent listen as someone who has never done anything like this. This showed me that sure, at times circumstances may be difficult, but that moment in which all of my focus is on that breathing showed me how much better thjng can be and are when you live in the moment.

Emotionalism
I learned that I have a lot to think about when it comes to silence. My mind tends to wonder and I start to think about the things that are going on in my life and lately it’s been how much I’m hurting or how much I’ve been hurt. I never realized just how much I think about it but this exercise made me focus on that and it helped me to just calm down and focus on myself and how I’m feeling just sitting there.

Alexandra
Helps a lot
I learned not to focus on the little things you might have messed up on and just realize where you are and that your safe and some people are in worse situations than yourself. You can temporarily drift off into your own breathing and forget your worries, not wanting to come out of the trance like state once it’s over and realizing there will always be good after the bad. Kinda like always a rainbow after a storm or the eye of a storm.

I really enjoyed this one. By acknowledging the things your mind wanders to, or the sounds you fixate on, it gives you the power to focus. Starve your distractions and feed your focus...that’s real power! 💕

Amber
My mind
It’s okay to let my mind drift- often we think that when we slip into a daydream or lose focus at any point in the day that it’s a bad thing however I think that that’s just the body’s response to pressure and stress, out mind takes a time out of the present to relieve you of any pressure, it’s not you being a not so great person. Allow your mind to drift but just be in control to accept when it drift and bring it back to focus🌟

Charleston, sc
I didn’t pay attention to the aura Meditation, I was not able to listen out loud and it proves hard to read and do at the same time. I’m in a beautiful park in Charleston.

I felt in control
Sometimes we focus so much on blocking everything out that it becomes impossible. But by simply allowing your senses to notice some distraction, naming it and bringing yourself back to your breathing made things more calming. It wasn’t about the goal, I felt in control of the distractions and it was easier to let go, let the thoughts pass by, and come back to my breathing.

Focusing on my breathing and becoming aware of myself has been really beneficial and effective in relieving my stress, as I am always under a lot of stress. I need to better manage my stress since I am not very good at it and tend to overwhelm myself with my own thoughts. I was unsure if I would be able to grow to enjoy sitting quietly and focusing on myself, but it definitely helps me feel more at ease and cope with my emotions.

I learned that I’m more capable of shutting out outside noises than I thought I was capable of. Came out of this one very relaxed, especially the hardest spots softened up! Enjoyed this one. Going through several extremely tough things at once....this helped.
K
Kelly
I noticed/felt
I loved how they described feeling your breathe as you inhale and exhale. It really is a good way to focus your mind and relax you!

Sounds
I loved describing the noises I was hearing (wind, birds, the dog, cars) and simple sounds.

Alexia
Day1
My mind wanders to what will happen in the future but as I do I feel peaceful and calm like as if I have been dreaming and as I breath I imagine myself in winter with the cold air I inhale that I can feel down my throat
M
Mia
First Mediation
I felt more connected with my breath than I usually do during mediation’s, but I did notice sounds much more than usual. Overall, it was a good session before bed and I feel as if I’ll be ready to take on tomorrow

K
Kate
Peaceful
I learned that simply bringing my mind back to my breath brings me calm. Naming the wandering mind, and pinning it back on my breath, without judgement, brings me peace.
A
Ashley
Helped me relax the uncomfortable sensations I am feeling of anxiousness while at work.
Trying to notice your surroundings but not letting them take a full toll over your thought process is good. Less overwhelming.

Pure relaxation
In the beginning I had problems switching off my wandering thoughts but as the meditation progressed I felt like I was in the rain forest, sitting in a tree and relaxing while watching the rain drops pouring down around me. This meditation gave me a magical moment; one I will gladly come back to
S
Shai
Calming
I realized that by keeping my focus on the little things – but ultimately coming back to focus on my breath – it calmed me. I don’t know for certain, but I feel much more relax than before.

Remembering
I learned that meditation can at times remind you of your stresses, so that you can practice letting go of them, instead of just conveniently forgetting them for a time.

Breathing
Breathing the cool air in through the nose along the windpipe into the chest.
G
Georgie
Thinking about breathing
I can name, identify and accept all the thoughts I am having. Thoughts of planning and worrying and analysing, evaluating. Identifying those and then coming back to my breath following my breath in and out of my body. Focusing on what is here now and accepting myself and my need to be present within my day. Accepting that things will work out and I need to trust myself. Not to worry and overthink what will happen, as it may never happen.
P

This session felt neutral. I don't think I learned much from this session. I was aware of my breathing. But that's okay, because I can always look forward to learning something new in my next session
B
Blue
Too much silence
There was too much silence that I thought the session was paused. I needed some light music or tiny sounds that shows it’s not ended. That silence distracted me from concentrating.

K
Karen
First tjme
I learned that my mind wanders, and I get very easily distracted by outside noises and influences
M
Maria
Redirecting
I often forget that I have an ability to step back and calm myself down. To focus on three things in the room, my breath, or naming a body sensation that is bothering me. I have no reason to rush, but that is all my mind wishes to do. Reminding myself over and over again that there is no need to rush, no need to figure everything out, in this very moment. Planning has a place but not at the expense of my mental and physical well-being.
H
Harper
More
I felt like I can control myself more and be able to relax more as well.

T
Talia
Relaxing
I’ve learned to let go of the things bothering me right now. If you are a student like me, having exams coming up, we both need to let go of the stuff bothering us and relax. We need to start preparing, letting go of the stuff bothering us, building up on us. Even if it’s hard, none said we couldn’t or should not. Let’s start.
L
Lainee
Life
I learned that it is ok to take a breath and breath all the problems away

The slow talking and attention to breath helped me relax and thinking clearly
Breathing deeply and with purpose helps relaxation, as well as naming things distractions and thoughts give them an outlet for my mind instead of letting them become a bigger problem then they are.

R
Rian
I realised how tired I really am and how important my rest is going to be for my next day.
I need to meditate more and take my mind off of things and just focus on one thing rather than me being anxious about everything and a lot of the time for no reason as well being extremely nervous.

L
Lolo
First Meditation
I learned that breathing through emotions that may come through into your heart and thoughts that may come through into your mind, helps to acknowledge them (when you inhale) and dismiss them (when you exhale). I’m going to use this when feelings of anxiety come over me.

Pulling tears
I need this confidence but even as I repeat the affirmations, I cry. It’s difficult to know confidence when I’ve been told to question my choices for so long. I hope this helps me reprogram myself.

What to do?
I’ve just got out of a really long relationship, And I don’t know how to forget him it’s been hard because we go to the same college, same work we live right next to each other and just knowing that he moved on fast and he’s talking to another girl it hurts and more because he calls me and says that to give him time that he needs a lone time it just hurts a lot.

C
Christian
What a great day!
This really wrapped up such a great day. I honestly can’t remember a day like this. It was absolutely perfect! Instead of thinking “Man! I’m having such a blast, but it’s only temporary tho : / “ I thought “Man! This is amazing! I’m going to enjoy this day to the fullest!” So now that it’s all said and done and I’m in bed just reflecting and winding down. I caught something. You can’t be at peace, or happy, or enjoy life if you’re worried about the length of happy moments or low moments, let alone being concerned about things out of your control. It’s a choice! I’ve noticed ever since I downloaded this app and I have my daily reminders and read the quotes and do the exercises,that things have got progressively better. It’s amazing how I never put relaxing, focusing, breathing exercises, and more self mind awareness on the forefront. Sometimes you just have to tune out everyone’s voice and in the chaos of life, work, family, etc find your voice and once you do, great things will happen!

I learned that if you really focus on your breathing you could feel relaxed and comfortable. I could picture myself in my safe spot. I felt the breeze on my skin I could feel the waves splash my face. I could even smell the salt water. I am now going to try to focus on my breathing when I get stressed out or worked up to much.

K
Kerstan
balanced
Being able to recognize your wandering mind and then bringing the attention back to focus really proves how in control we truly are of our minds and our body's. This is something that should be remembered every single day during times when we may feel disconnected from our body's.

A
Agustina
Feeling
I tend to postpone meditation but mostly because I feel like I don't have time or because I want to do it at "the right time" and so I end up feeling a strong need to meditate but not doing it. Every time I complete a session my whole self feels at ease and for someone who struggles with BPD that's just amazing.

When I’m trying to focus and I find my mind wandering to tasks that I need to complete or things I’m worried about O tend to beat myself up. Instead, I should name it - address it - and call my attention back.

Thoughts in being ckear
I need to get and stay clear. It’s the best thing for me. I have a very cluttered mind and over analyze. If I can just consistently meditate and journal, I can become a better me. More clear, focused... Remember when you were consistently meditating while listening to Serial? And you were able to clearly articulate EXACTLY what was happening or had happened to your family? And you were more passionate and energetic and you felt that people actually wanted to be around you and listened to you? THATS the power of meditation and getting clear. Same for when you were in construction. Remember after that very first time of meditating how clear and focused you felt the next day at work? I mean it was literally night and day. It was amazing. And how about that time at gg when you were talking with Jon about a deal, trying to make sense of what to do next. And you had an idea that we’re not only able to come up with, but also clearly articulate and Jon actually said yea that’s a good idea, that makes sen, you’re right. It was a great feeling. And even just typing this or now. It just comes out so naturally and clear and you’re able to recall things and put them down into words. It really is amazing joey. Do this. Teach this. Be consistent and learn and do from it so you can teach the world to do the same. You can do it. And you will. You have a gift. Now you go out and spread it!!

I feel more in touch with myself and the life around me
I have never been able to focus while meditating but I tried meditating outside instead of in my room and it worked wonders. I felt the life of the birds, the grass, the wind around me. Their energy helped me focus and I actually finished my first session without wandering.
O
Olivia
Very calm
It’s easy to get caught up with things... work, drama, our phones, really anything going on taking 3 minutes to just forget everything and focus on your breathing can really calm you and make you focused on you and not so much the things around that distract you and discomfort you.
C

Breathing
I felt at peace as I inhaled and exhaled. I could fell the air filling my lungs as it entered. I could hear the air passing through my nose back into the atmosphere around me. I felt like a single wheel in a huge machine, making the necessary movements to operate. I felt the peace of the normality.

Realisations
I realised that beneath all of my layers of hatred, I am actually an empath. I want to connect to people, make them happy. I am a beautiful person. I have many unique and good qualities. I am worthy of love, appreciation and acceptance, and above all, there has been no one like me and there will be no one like me because I am unique. I am a friendly, hardworking, dedicated, talented multi cultural, multi ethnic and multi racial female. I am prepared to take on any challenge I come across and let myself be taken by the tenderness I see in others. I am a human. I am capable of extreme good and also extreme improvement. I may have my negative qualities and I may be capable of extreme bad but I am healing and recovering and like everyone else, need time to be able to get better and recover to the most profound degree possible.

i had difficulty focusing
as i was listening to it i was having a lot of trouble just sitting back and relaxing, i was constantly thinking about if someone was going to barge into my room or if my phone would go to sleep mode because it is not being periodically tapped — i really want to make it a priority to be more focused on the one thing i want to think about and push out all other things i notice and get distracted by in my surroundings
M

I got distracted by outside noises and was very anxious
I need to let go and focus on breathing. The anxiousness and snoring almost got the better of me but the focus reminder helped. Made me very sleepy

Breathing
I learned the first session was only about breathing and then it was over. I was confused like that’s it? I never meditated before so maybe this is all it’s about. I didn’t have any anxiety before starting because I just got back from a hike. I will try this when I get home from work next time.

Midnight Thunder
The old country store smelled like butterscotch. “Would you like anything else?” A grey-haired lady dressed in an apron behind a wooden counter kindly asked. “Do you have any bubblegum?” “Yes we do; Bazooka or gum balls?” “Bazooka please!” It was then that the rumbling pulled me to the surface... I turned my head toward the window just in time to catch a flash of white lightning branching across the sky, followed a few seconds later by a deep BOOM which rolled away in a cascade of descending echoes. The wind whipped against the side of house as the rain pelted the roof. It sounded like a million marbles being dropped from a dump truck. I was grateful to be inside a watertight house as I thought about the rabbits outside... I reached over and touched her hand. She mumbled something in French, so I reached over and touched her hand. She squeezed my palm and then drifted back to sleep.

Trouble with breathing
When I inhale, I feel a struggle in my chest and in my stomach. It cuts my breath short. Maybe I just need to exercise my breathing more. Expand my lung capacity.

In every day life with so much going on and everything moving at such a high pace it’s good to just circle back to your breath and realise it isn’t all to bad. You have lungs and heart and a breath that allow you to live a conquer each day.

Cool
My mind wonders too much. It’s easy to wonder off but harder to focus in. When I was doing this my mind was like a gear shift, constantly turning. I found it a little difficult to just focus on my breath and not have that little tiny voice in my head veering me off the path.

Learning
It has been a little over three years now since my medical conditions began. I know it could be worse, I know that I will be fine, doctors have found nothing wrong with me. Yet I cannot control myself or stop myself from being stressed, worried, scared, embarrassed, anxious. I was already 17 when I first blacked out, and since then it has happened numerous times due to different situations. The doctors, my parents, and myself know that sometimes it is just me messing with myself. Thus, I want to learn how to relax, to calm myself, and to control myself during these situations. It has only been 3 years, so I know it is normal for me not to know how to handle everything yet. I am still trying to learn to differentiate everything I feel; seperate what is serious and real from what is not. Today is the day I begin to learn to take control of myself and to not be so afraid or anxious.

First try with Aura...
I have some ability to recognize a thought, observe it, and let it go. But often it is quick to return. My ankles hurt. There is a soreness in my pelvis.

Today
I learned that my mind is scattered. I have not meditated in such a long time and have allowed my insecurities and my anxieties get to me in every aspect of my life, from trying to fall asleep to trying to relax. I would like to become more mindful, and to learn how to relax my mind and my body so that I can be more collected and calm in my everyday life. I hope that meditation will help me to see more clearly in my life and help me focus on the things that are important to me, so that I can help myself do better in my life.

Get focused
As she guided me through the exercise, my thoughts would skip away and I’d bring them back. I remembered how happy I was the first time I tried meditation and learned that a wandering mind was part of the meditation. Such a relief to be okay and that made it easier to go back to my breath. Where else can it be okay to mess up and just go back to it without judgement! I’m still working on loving-kindness for self.

Concentrating on breathing makes you feel weightless, almost angelic. This would be a good technique to use anywhere, or on the go.

Mindfully Update Your Brain's Capcity
Adjusting to acceptance of the wandering mind, acknowledgement of it, and naming it as simple wandering without judgement opens our expansive ability to increase concentration. Our judgement of the thoughts impedes our desire to get where we want with mindfulness practice.

It was interesting, but my mind wandered too much. Probably because I wasn’t in the best position haha. There’s a tightness in my head, I think it’s stress/anxiety.

Moments
I noticed that in this experience the voice telling me what to focus on or how to focus was just a voice. For me to be honest on something this personal is very rare, but honestly this wasn’t my favorite exercise. I felt like she was an instructor, I didn’t feel like I got to relax and focus on the time I had to notice my mental moments.

Tavarna
Noticed
I learned that I can become one to one with my inner thoughts and mind and when I am there I can control everything and can do anything I really felt that my body was asleep but my mind was awake so that’s where my brain put me and I was at a place with a river smoothly running down a streem and bright green, soft and almost silky grass the trees had lots of leafs but not over grown just perfect and the bark on the tree was a healthy brown which made everything stand out and make everything look alive and in the distance it was all the same but had different flowers every where couldn’t make out what kind but they was beautiful and just when you can’t see no more of the river the sun beams on the water but it’s not too brother even tho it looks so close I could feel a slight breeze brush against my cheeks and hands and my feet felt the softness of the grass on the bottem on my feet with the little bits of grass sweeping across the top of my foot, the air smelt earthy and fresh, the water smelt clean and cleansed and looked purley and sparkily and behind me was just pitch white and every time I took a step forward everything behind me faded into white and it just looked peaceful and still it was just quite but it doesn’t feel lonely i also felt love come from the white background and made me feel safe and perfected I really enjoyed this 3 minuets of focusing 🙂

There was an amazing moment I recalled while living in Colorado, and this first session brought be to a place in the mountains where I felt connected with nature and the people I was with. I noticed how much I've been improving in the short time since I've been meditating. My moods, thinking process, and sense of wellbeing have all improved quite a bit.

Get focused
Focusing on breathing. I understood when she said it’s not about the breathing it’s about focusing on the breathing. I understand that we have developed habits just like breathing that we no longer think are habits, but we could just focus on them. I’m sure that wasn’t the exact intention of the meditation, but as i was writing that idea came to mind.

Sunday reflection- Get Focused
Today has been a very busy day for the Hamilton clan today.. as Sunday mornings usually are for us! You can imagine what it’s like with 1 and a 3 year old to get ready for church on time! woke up this morning and it had been non stop since we woke up.. it’s been fun but a lot of rushing to get ready, the kids and ourselves for church.. making breakfast, eating all before 11.. which might I add we didn’t make it too church since we were running behind.. we got all packed in the car and headed to Bloomington to realize it was already 11:15 and we can’t make it! which really bummed us out but we didn’t leave the house on time! :( We didn’t move fast enough.. So we decided to do a devotional together tonight. But I learned today that through all the rushing around it’s nice to just find time for a break and enjoy the peace and the calm through the storm! So we ran around and did some shopping I decided to stay in the car with the kids while Cetan went in to get us some things! Kids are freaking out being loud and wild and crazy as usual lol and at this point I’m losing my mind so I break out my mediation app and play it I had to restart it a few times but then it got so quite after a few minutes and they were out like lights! When I got done meditating I just sat there in awe and just took in that moment. Such a great feeling! It’s never too late to get focused even in the middle of the storm it could be exactly what you need! I know it was for me ❤️

Just a chance to breath
I feel like it is something hard to focus on your breathing because it’s so natural and we’re always doing so many things wether it’s work or hanging out with friends or the family. I also feel like even though you take just a very short amount of time to focus on what your body is telling you and taking those deep breaths makes a huge difference, u wouldn’t think it would but it is amazing what can happen when you truly take a moment to yourself to see what you need. Sometimes or more accurately most of the time we are not listening to what our bodies need and when we do it’s kind of a surprise. Me focusing just now made me feel like I was more awake and refreshed, ready to take on the day, and do what need to get done.

Getting started
It was a little hard for me to get focused. But I feel like I may like doing this in the evening more than the morning. In the evening, I usually could use some help winding down and relaxing my anxious thoughts so that I can fall asleep sooner. No more tossing and turning.

Anna
Focus
I feel like everyone she would say something else not to focus on it would begin focusing on it and I guess the harder I try not to focus on it the more I do- I need to practice focus

I didn’t learn, but I need to learn to heal from past experiences. To be comfortable around people, to let my guard down and to feel like I am just as important as everyone around me.

Matilda
First Session
While my mind did often wander, it was helpful to notice that and bring my focus back to my breathing. I can see that it will become a lot more natural to simply be rather than think all the time, which I look forward to.

Amy
First time
I used to do some guided meditation in the past, but haven't in years. I've always really liked how it can make me feel. So with all the stresses of being a working mom and wife, and not taking enough time to focus on my own health, I decided to get back into it. Researching good apps brought me to Aura. The intro meditation was short, but very effective. Looking forward to making this a part of my daily routine.
