Hello and welcome to part 3 of 5 in this mindful meditation series.
This mediation looks at getting organised.
When we are organised it is less effort to find things, as well as less worry about where that safe place was we put something for that one time we will need it.
So find yourself a comfortable position to relax in, sitting or laying the choice is yours.
Adjust your shoulders, adjust your hips.
Slowly close your eyes and notice the darkness for a moment.
Adjust from the outside world to within.
Breathe in deeply, breathe out deeply.
Feel your chest gently rise and fall.
This time is for you and you only.
Notice the stillness around you, let the stillness calm the body deeper.
Let yourself melt away from the world, all that matters rights now, is you.
Now imagine you are sat at your desk.
With a neat pile of things that need to be filed away.
It is time to organise.
You look up from your desk and notice you are surrounded by shelves filled with folders.
You take a moment to look at all the shelves, everything ordered by year, month, day. You might even order your folders down to the hour.
You realise these shelves contain every thought, every event in your life which you want to keep.
Ready for you to access anytime you wish, so you can enjoy those memories.
You smile for a moment as you take in all the shelves and folders, so calm, organised.
Slowly you look back at your desk.
You pick up the first piece of paper that needs to be filed.
Within a moment you know exactly where that piece of paper needs to be filed.
You get up from the desk, slowly making your way to the exact spot on one of the shelves where this piece of paper will be filed.
You open the folder, insert the paper, return the folder to its location on the shelf and breathe.
Take a moment to notice how it felt to organise that piece of paper.
To no longer worry about trying to hold on to that piece of paper, or fear you could lose it.
Knowing it is safely filed away for you to access anytime you wish.
Organisation brings a sense of safety, knowing you can find anything you need in your mind at anytime.
Did you notice that sorting that piece of paper begun to calm the mind.
You go back to the desk and item by item begin to file them away.
The pieces of paper and things from the desk which are being organised represent thoughts you know you need to keep.
Yet these thoughts do not need to be playing over and over in your mind.
Instead safely filed away. No longer taking up precious space at the front of your mind.
With each piece you file, take a deep breath out and notice the calmness grow within you.
As you now know you could find any thought in your mind you wish. All organised by shelf and folder. Bringing a feeling of calmness, knowing how easy you can now access things.
Enjoy organising the items from the desk, organising the mind.
You have one item left to organise from your desk.
As you pick up the item you feel proud as you see how calm and clutter free your desk is.
You file the last item away.
Standing amongst the shelves you breathe deeply, enjoying the stillness.
Enjoying how chaos free the shelves are, how organised you are.
You look around at all the shelves, all the memories and thoughts you wish to keep.
Some good, some bad, yet all important to you. All have helped shape you into the person you are.
As you look around you, you realise, organisation not only brings stillness and calmness.
It brings control.
Enjoy a few more breaths. Appreciate how well you have done to organise the things from your desk.
Take one more deep breath in and out.
Allow your breath to return to its natural rhythm.
Gently wiggle your fingers and your toes.
Slowly open your eyes.
Thank you for listening.
