Here’s a Sample of the “Open Awareness for Thoughts and Senses” Guided Meditation Script:

Let's begin by taking a moment to allow your body to settle into a comfortable position.

You may close your eyes or keep them slightly open (2 seconds)

allowing the spine to lift, the shoulders to soften (5 seconds).

Today we will practice open awareness (2 seconds).

As we've explored, the open awareness practice can give us the gift of being aware.

Aware of things like our thoughts, and emotions, what's happening in our relationships,

but without getting stuck or hung up on them, as we may usually do.

Open awareness practice helps us to have a gentle matter-of-factness
saying to ourselves,

“Oh this is here, got it. How might I need this?”

So we'll begin by taking a full breath in and a long breath out (5 seconds).

Noticing the in breath (2 seconds), noticing the out breath (5 seconds).

Allow the breath to settle now and to find its own natural rhythm.

Letting the breath breathe itself.

Try not to interfere with the process and notice how the body moves in response to the breath.

The chest expands (2 seconds), it relaxes (2 seconds)

the belly rises (2 seconds) and falls (5 seconds).

Now gently expand your awareness to whatever is arising (2 seconds).

You may notice thoughts, sensations, sounds, all coming and going.

All arising and passing away (5 seconds).

Before I realized words were my calling, I was stringing together language of a different sort, code. I taught myself to program while in school (for philosophy), and built WordPress sites for a living. It was a grind, but it was fun. Until it wasn’t. Lucky for my sanity, I found this little thing called writing. Now, I write in the technology space, it was a natural extension of my skills. I know tech and I know writing. Why not combine them.
And that brings us to the present day. Creating epic content for tech-related websites, startups, SaaS businesses, and high-traffic online business and marketing blogs. I only write for companies who I’m passionate about.
