I successfully overcame my morning urge to prepare my own coffee. I developed my ability to wait for one hour for the 1st sip of coffee prepared by my mom. I practice the following meditation below. You can also practice this with your tea or coffee.
Breathe In – I am aware that I am sitting on my chair
Breathe Out – I enjoy sitting
Breathe In – I am aware of my whole body
Breathe Out – I smile to my whole body
Breathe In – I feel how my hands are holding the coffee tumbler (cup)
Breathe Out – I feel the warmth of the tumbler in my hands
Breathe In – I am aware of how my hands bring the tumbler towards my mouth
Breathe Out – I enjoy the smell of the coffee (freshly filtered decoction coffee)
Breathe In – I feel the tumbler touching my lips
Breathe Out – I feel and taste the coffee in my mouth
Breathe In – I feel the coffee happily going down in my throat
Breathe Out – I feel the coffee aroma at my nose tips as I breathe out
Breathe In – I am aware of all the energies this coffee brings along – the sun, rain, lakes, rivers, soil, plantations, leaf pickers, coffee factory, packaging, transportation, local coffee shop fellow, milk vendor, coffee maker, my mom and me.
Breathe Out – I enjoy this gift from the universe
Breathe In – I enjoy my coffee
Breathe Out – I smile to myself
Have a Mindful Coffee Day!
