When discussing mindfulness practice with a client recently, I discovered the relationship between mindfulness and climbing a hill or mountain to reach a view. Often our minds can give us an endless stream of thoughts that leave us feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. Is there a way to climb the Mountain to get a view of all that’s below, in this case seeing all the thoughts? While hiking up a mountain, one has to train and exert energy to be able to make it to the summit. Similarly in mindfulness practice, if one wants a clear perspective, practice and training of the mind is needed. With a consistent mindfulness practice one is able to see clearly the thoughts which pass like clouds drifting over the valley below. They then have the choice whether to give that thought energy or let it pass. Without an intentional mindfulness practice, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed due to not being able to see the big picture and expanded view. Come join me as we train the mind to be here for life and see clearly the valley below.
