Hey there. Welcome to this 30-minute Skylight walking meditation on mindfulness. Take a deep inhale. Exhale. Start out walking a bit slower than you usually do. Back straight, shoulders relaxed. Become aware of your body. The sensations in your body. Take notice of how you're walking. Often when we walk, we have a certain destination to reach. Now we're just walking to be present and in the moment. Take notice of your surroundings, where you are and how you feel. Start to be aware of the sensations in your feet as they touch the ground, gently placing one foot on the ground as the other one lifts. Move along the Earth as you walk with peace, love, and kindness. As you walk, gently bring your attention to your breathing, allowing any tension to leave as you breathe in and out. Releasing. If you're having thoughts that disrupt your peace, anxious thoughts, worrisome thoughts, let them pass you by. They are just thoughts. Now it's time to walk in the present moment. You are here. One more time. You are here. Take notice of your posture. Check in with yourself, breathing in and out. Be aware of your significance, dwelling in the present. Being aware of each moment, taking notice of where you are right now. Allow your walking to bring you back. There is no rush, no goal, you are allowed to just be. You are allowed to be. As you walk, begin to show gratitude for your breath, walking, breathing in and out. Take the next two minutes to just be as you walk in gratitude. As you walk past people, extend your compassion to them. Wish them well, wish them peace in their journey. If you're walking where there's no one around, extend compassion to a person that comes to mind, wish them well, wish them peace on their journey. You are passing through the world with peace, you are passing through the world with peace. We spend a lot of time in our heads, simply become aware of your body and your feet touching the ground. Take this time to acknowledge the Earth, give back nourishment and gratitude to the Earth, the nature around you, the sky above you, the sun shining, or the evening glowing beautifully. Don't allow anything to distract you. Be aware but nothing is a distraction. You are here in the present, accepting and acknowledging peacefully. Become aware of your body walking in the rhythm with yourself, enjoying who you are in the present, walking mindfully. Deep inhale. Exhale. Take the next two minutes to walk. Enjoy. Bring your awareness to your breath, to your walking. Find the balance between the two. Find you in the present. As you walk, think about the peace and the harmony you bring to the world, the lives you touch, the joy, the laughter and kindness you embody, breathing in and out. As you see people pass you, without judgment, wish them peace. If there is no one around, think of someone, and without judgment, wish them peace. Bring your focus to the present without pushing yourself. Just gently easing into the present, peacefully. Breathing in and out. Acknowledging your walking, acknowledging your breath, back straight, shoulders back, breathing in and out. Walking in peace, walking, enjoy walking in gratitude. Finding you in the present. Take the next five minutes to enjoy your walk, allowing yourself to be centered, calm, and focused. Breathing in and out. Start to slow it down a bit. Become aware of your body, the sensations in your body. Taking notice of how you're walking. Often we have a certain destination to reach. We were just walking to be present and in the moment. Take notice of your surroundings, where you are and how you feel. Just like in the beginning of this mindful walk, start to be aware of the sensations in your feet as they touch the ground, gently placing one foot on the ground as the other one lifts, moving along the Earth as you walk with peace, love, and kindness. As we begin to conclude our meditation, remain present, make the decision to maintain this peace, to live in the moment, to love and cherish those around us, and to be good to ourselves. I wish you joy and peace in the present, always.
