Release the chatter

So many times we fall into inertia and get stuck. And we punish ourselves even more by that constant stream of chatter. You know that self-talk that goes round and round and gets in the way of being creative. Get’s in the way of being present, happy, successful, alive. All of it. We get in our own way and trip.

Sometimes we don’t even realize we get in our own way. Someone else did something, said something, made something. And we internalize it all  – so they IS us. And it goes round and round and round in our heads and blocks our hearts. What happens next? Inertia.

So I wrote this meditation to release the chatter. It is a favorite amongst the artists I teach it to. 

I want to offer it up to all who need it  –  helps me too. If you like it share it, open source meditations are the future.
