Good Enough Healing

In this meditation, we'll make peace with some of our "baggage" and practice finding joy right here and now.

Let's start by finding a comfortable posture. This could be sitting down, lying down or standing. If it feels okay to do so, you can invite your eyes to close. And we'll take a deep breath together as a way to further settle in. Breathing in through the nose.

And slowly out through the mouth. Invite the jaw to soften. Allow the shoulders to be at ease. And the hands and the belly. As the body starts to settle in, you can let the breath fall into its own natural rhythm.

You're welcome to place one hand on your belly to feel that rhythm more vividly. We'll take a few moments to settle our attention on the breath. Notice all the dispersion of thoughts, ideas, the energy of the day. Collecting all of that to one place, this breath, in this moment. In this meditation, we're focusing on the theme of good enough healing.

This idea that we don't need to completely fix or purify all parts of ourselves in order to start living a good life. So we're going to do a meditation that I call resting in wholeness. And this involves connecting into the part of us that is fundamentally okay, the part that is already good enough, worthy and doesn't need to be any better to be complete. We can start by just settling in. Letting the whole body relax.

And then notice the thoughts moving through your mind. And watch how there is a part of you that is able to observe yourself thinking, a part of you that knows, Oh, there's a thought right now. That's the part that we want to connect with. Part of you that is bigger than your thoughts, bigger than your trauma, bigger than your emotions, your concerns, confusion, doubt. You can even place one hand on your heart and one on your belly.

And with each breath, feeling that you're already whole. You can experience joy, goodness, fulfillment right now, in this moment, with this breath. It's okay to smile if you want to smile. You're allowed to be happy. Your past does not define you.

The things you're working on don't define you. On the most fundamental level, you're already perfect. Breathe that in. Let's take one more deep breath together. In through the nose.

And out through the mouth. And when you're ready, you can open your eyes. Well done. As you go about your day today, see if you can keep this in mind, this quality of good enough healing and that on the deepest level, you're already whole. Thank you for your practice.

And until we talk again, take care.
