My first meditation session went very well. I downloaded the Circle + Bloom Natural Cycle program to my ipod so I could easily keep this by my bedside.
My goal was to take as many distractions out of the room to prevent interruptions. So, I went to our bedroom with my ipod, shut the dogs out, turned off the TV and let Chris know not to disturb me. I found some stress relief lotion at Bath and Body works (on sale for $3) so I put that on before starting the session.
This program offers a new track for each day of your cycle, with a total of 28 tracks. There is even a special track for ovulation; I can't wait to listen to that one. This program uses a lot of positive affirmation. Think it and it will happen.
After the program ended, I couldn't believe how nice it was just to sit in the dark and not think about anything other than relaxing for a few minutes. Even if this program does not improve my fertility, I have found and explored new ways of relaxation that I know I will use the rest of my life.
As I go through the rest of this program, I will keep you updated on my stress and progress.
