I wanted to share with you some ideas and photos of my practicing "Mindfulness".
Do you know "Mindfulness based stress Reduction"
If you are interested read this
I started with that program in April, which a friend of mine recommended to me.
It was part of the program of courses the church is organising for students.
I went there and spoke with the tutor, and i could take part, even i am not a student anymore.
I am so grateful that this happened just at this moment in my life, after the terrible end of my relationship with the man i thought i would have childrens with.
It was so hard to find new ways and Perspectives, and to loose the cruel memories and dreams.
But now i think it is true: When one door closes, another one opens..
Or God gives you at least the toolkit to open a new one...
The toolkit is and was the Mindfulness.I practiced a lot, and in the beginning i had no expectations.
Now, i feel so much more rest, energy, freedom and contentment.
I really felt that the base to feel happiness is not outside, but lies inside.
And i realised taking photos was my little way to be in the moment, long before i heard something about this method.
It is very interested that making cards is another way to just be in the moment and let your creativity go.
Amusingly, when i read the sentiments we use for our card creations...they are almost all in this "mindfulness tradition".for example" It´s the little things that matter..."
So i feel very grateful to experience all that.
At the moment i still live at my parent´s place.
During this summer i will decide where to live.i will not stay in freiburg.
What i definitely will miss will be my parc runnings every morning.
A few days ago i went there at the time of sunrise to take some photos and do my meditation.
it was so interesting to see all the different things, which are so normal but wonderful..
i want to share some of them, and the cards i made afterwards.
I wish you a great start to a happy and mindfulness week!!!
i feel the warmth and the light..and a second later i smile...
The water of the lake is shimmering, and the surface has so many colors depending on the light and the place
i love to observe all these differences...
And the shadows of the plants and trees give such great images.
Some are like paintings of CLAUDE MONET:
Reminds me of Italy....
now the parc slowly comes to live.
i am almost at the end of my expedition..feel a little hungry too.
i see some flower and spiderweb on my way home...
Thanks for joining me....
i take a cup of tea and my muesli....and the day gets started...
Here my cards:
