I am very late but I know it is still Friday...............
My favourite this week is something called YOGA NIDRA. Those of my followers who practise yoga and I know some of you do will know it well. It is a guided meditation that inspires the release of physical and emotional tension by taking you into a profound state of relaxation but you think you just listening to the nice music and lovely lady guiding you through it. I have several versions on CD and love it. Studies in the USA have shown that Yoga Nidra has helped soldiers returning from Active Duty with stress and insomnia and people suffering from depression. It's continuing benefits are enormous. The good thing is although it usually accompanies a restorative yoga practice you can use the CD on it's own as a relaxation tool. This is one of my favourite versions which I purchased from www.newearthrecords.com and it is by Terry Oldfield & Soraya Saraswati.
Just before I started to write my post I recieved this email from my Daughter and it seemed to fit perfectly with my post for today so I thought I would share it with you as well.
I wish you a weekend of really appreciating yourself because you are unique. There is no other being on this planet as wonderful and unique as you. So celebrate the treasure that is *you*
