One of my students who has been studying meditation for over 20 years explained a simple yet terrific meditation technique used to deal with stressful thoughts that arise. It's too good to not share it. She says that when you have a stressful or negative thought that pops into your head, you just observe it in a detached fashion then imagine that you have a few balloons floating beside your head. You place the stressful or negative thought into one of the balloons and tie it up, then let go of the string and watch the balloon float away. Thanks Jan.
Hi Peter (see comment below) thanks for that, I'll give it a try. To me both are just ways of being more "mindful" about your emotions & choosing how to react, which is why "mindful" exercise like Tai Chi and strategies (like both mentioned) are beneficial.
These are my thoughts about various aspects of Tai Chi. They may or may not be original and I try to give credit where credit is due.
