The first day I started my Yoga Nidra practice I was like a desperate she-wolf who needed her Yoga Nidra cave (but worn-out woman Peta didn’t know it) and I just couldn’t seem to find 20 minutes to myself. But I was so bloody determined to get my RESTING on that I grabbed a 20 minute window when one of the kids was down the street playing with his mate and the other two were doing their thing and the hub was still at work so I thought “RIGHT! This is it!”
So of course the kid down the street came back with his mate and they were yahooing (not a crime really except when the she-wolf is trying to DE-STRESS instead of being in DISTRESS!!!!) Anyway I digress, there I am trying really really hard to stay zenned (side note here - I’d already been challenged with the audio download not working and not having the right app to download it in so trying another only to wait for it to download and then tell me this file is not supported! I mean seriously???? I don’t really buy into the whole Mercury Retrograde thing of all technology grinding to a holt but I was starting to question it…) Anyway, another tangent I know, I’m the queen of Tangents I bloody LOVE them.
Anyway, Billy walks into my room ‘Mum, Mum!!!’ and I rise up like that crazed she-wolf searching for the pause button on my audio download trying to breathe deeply and stay ‘in the moment’ only to be told something that I can’t even remember cos it was that important and I wildly look at Billy and semi-growl MUM IS M.E.D.I.T.A.T.I.N.G!!! I swear to god any zen I had flew out of my ears and I ended up saying fucking on the out breath and hell on the in breath.
So as I ‘progressed’ from Day 1-5 in my book I read that sometimes it’s a good idea to make a sign and teach your kids that this is a time for mum and to respect that when the sign is on the door they can’t come in. So bless their cotton socks - cos that’s exactly what I did and then I think it was day 3 or something when I heard Sampson answer my phone (he’s the kid who can’t let a phone ring without answering cos this is = to a fate worse than death), anyway he answered my phone and I heard him say “mum can’t come to the phone right now cos she’s meditating” !!! Fuckin love those kids!!!
