Today’s post is an extract from my morning meditation practice, which I adapted from a Poetry Prompt, Reflection Time by Lucy Eggcademic and offer to you as a guided meditation script for personal use.
Basically, for my Reflection Time, I journal for twenty-six minutes and during that time I engage in a meditation practice and then reflect on my thoughts and insights.
This morning, for my Twenty-Six Minutes I practiced a 5 Senses Meditation.
Here’s what I observed during my practice.
Guided Meditation Script: 5 Senses Meditation Practice
5 Things I Can See
Clean cream sheets of paper waiting to be filled.
Pink, freshly washed sheets keeping me warm.
Red pencil case.
Blue pen in my hand.
White headphones standing to attention.
4 Things I Can Feel
Soft cotton sheets keeping me warm.
Cupped palm resting on my cheek.
Right foot tucked around my left ankle.
Pen in my hand.
3 Things I Can Hear
Cocks calling out to greet the dawn.
Radio playing morning hymns.
Mum’s slippers shuffling in her room.
2 Things I Can Taste
Stale morning breath.
1 Thing I Can Smell
Lingering whiffs of nourishing hand night cream.
If you have a morning mindfulness meditation practice, I invite you to get a pen, settle yourself and then meditate and journal your experience.

Till next time, take special care.
Worried. Overwhelmed. Exhausted.
