  1. Hello! I’m visiting from SITS – I just read your comment on one of the forums which mentioned you aren’t getting any lovin’ so here I am 😀

    Thanks for posting this. I practice yoga fairly regularly and the thing I have the most difficulty with are not hard postures, but disconnecting from my brain! I tend to run at warp speed all the time, and even though I’m well on the path to zenitude, I still can’t fully disconnect. I honestly don’t think I’ll ever be able to meditate unless someone creates an OFF switch for my brain LOL!

    • Hey there Ranndomized! Thanks for dropping by and leaving some comment love! 🙂 I’m with you on the off switch for my brain!! I find I am able to meditate best to guided meditation. When someone else’s voice is guiding me through a meditation, I find I focus more on the instructions and less on the minutiate of my brains! LOL!
