#paganlists : meditation challenges

Or probably, more accurately, things that challenge me about meditating...



What's monkey mind, you ask? Restless, wandering mind that feels impossible to still. The thoughts that are caught up in the mundane, day to day stuff, that you can't seem to let go of, especially when you're trying to. That's a really simplistic explanation, but it gives you the picture.

And honestly, it's my biggest challenge when meditating. It's so easy to get caught up in the endless mind games and thoughts. I'm constantly reminding myself to let go and get back on track when I meditate. I don't know that that will ever really go away. I'm working towards just trying to get longer stretches before my mind gets drawn back in.

What about you? What is it that gets in the way of your meditation?

*I've decided, for sustainability sake, that #paganlists is going to be a monthly project for me. One list on the 15th of the month. Please feel free to play along if you're so inclined. Use my list prompt or create your own and share it with #paganlists on twitter so I can find you!
