Sometimes You Just Have To Fly: Swinging Meditation

Swinging I took a bike ride a few weeks ago to clear my head after a week full of unexpected events. About a month ago, I was all set to get my first new car, a 2015 Toyota Corolla LE Eco. I was really happy and excited, even though I knew something within the process felt a bit off instinctively. Towards the end of my shift at work I was handed a letter that said they wouldn’t be continuing with my place of employment. Long story short: I will not fight to stay somewhere where I’m not valued. And that’s that. It’s truly for the best to put the car purchasing on hold for the present moment. I want & need to feel comfortable in my first major purchase. Who wouldn’t? It’s like buying a house…only portable. During that bike ride, I found myself coming across an old swing set on the bike trail that a couple of childhood friends & I used to swing on. I haven’t swung on a swing in quite a few years. It’s probably the closest I’ve ever come to the feeling of flying. That flying feeling has the power to take you out of yourself; out of your worries and day to day concerns. It felt exhilarating & joyous. 🙂 Grounding oneself is important. Yet, letting your feet off the ground for a few moments for a quick rest or fun time can help you re-energize yourself; and allow new energy to flow through you in a different form. This way, when you put your feet on the ground again, you’re able to ground yourself with a whole new energy. It’s liberating and regenerating. It’s a great stress reliever. 🙂

I call it ‘Swinging Meditation.’
