About Anne

My spiritual journey started when I discovered a local yoga class and through this I found new friends and developed a deeper interest in spirituality. I've been training for over 18 years in many disciplines, from Hatha Yoga to traditional Usui Reiki and Karuna Reiki to meditation, mindfulness and relaxation. I live on the sunny :) Isle of Wight, not far from the sea breezes and sandy beaches...

Day 88 of 100 days of Mindfulness Meditation

Today I was unable to practice my meditation as normal, but I managed to do it in other ways. I practice my meditation every night as well, so last night I sat on my bolster to practice and I had a sudden rush of anxiety and found it very difficult to stay there. I changed positions laying on the bed with my legs up the wall to help me feel more relaxed and continued from there. […]

Day 85 of 100 days of Mindfulness Meditation

Another night full of dreams, waking up feeling sleepy, it looked like a nice morning and I almost went to sit outside, but in my sleepy state I didn’t feel like dragging out all my cushions and blankets, so I opened a window to let the outside in and sat on my bolster inside. […]

Day 83 of 100 days of Mindfulness Meditation

Waking up this morning I didn’t know where I was or what day it was, I had been dreaming about things which left me feeling worried, so I was all a little bit confused.

Day 81 of 100 days of Mindfulness Meditation

Getting up this morning, I chose to go outside as I didn’t have a quiet space indoors to practice. I took my bolster, cushions and blankets outside and sat behind a Japanese Maple, so that I couldn’t see the whole garden and get distracted by everything around me. […]

Even though it was a lovely morning outside, I decided to stay indoors for my meditation practice, as I wanted to try kneeling over my bolster again and I felt like focussing on just myself and the question today. […]
