I like to self reflect and since there is no one to guide me I don’t feel as though it is that difficult to just be on your own. When I close my eyes and guide myself it could be a little harder because you are trying to tell your brain and body what to do and also following the instructions.
I realize that when I meditate in class I start off antsy but eventually calm down. When I am meditating by myself at home I don’t really get myself worked up and don’t really want to move. I start off calmly and end calm but relaxed, and I would feel good about myself because I actually did it.
I remember the first time I tried to meditate at home and I didn’t start out confident but directing my whole body was just a bit overwhelming and I ended up kinda panicking. I was kind of frustrated and confused at first at how people could just meditate by themselves and actually guide themselves through the whole process. I found out that it actually just took time and practice to do so.
My friends and I don’t meditate with each other but we kind of self reflect on things. In the beginning I really didn’t think meditation would actually help me because I would eventually doze off or start to dream and get off topic with the whole guided meditation. But I realized it wasn’t too bad and now I can meditate by myself, without any guidance from another person.
