Mindful Seeing Meditation

This simple mindfulness exercise takes only a few minutes and includes five steps:

  • Step 1 - find a quiet moment to sit next to a window;
  • Step 2 - look at everything you see outside the window
    Try not to label and categorize what you see outside the window;
    instead of thinking “kid” or “traffic light,” try to notice the colors, the patterns, or the textures;
  • Step 3 - pay attention to the movement of the grass or leaves in the breeze.
    Notice the many different shapes are in this small part of the world you can see.
    Try to see the world outside the window from the perspective of someone who has never seen these sights;
  • Step 4 - be perceptive, but not judgmental.
    Be aware, but don't get attached to what you see;
  • Step 5 - if you become distracted, gently pull your mind away from those thoughts and notice a color or shape again to put you back in the moment.

    When I look outside I see my beautiful garden with lots of flowers at the moment. All is green an different colors from several different plants. Like roses, lavender, when I look at the flowers I can imagine the smell.

    I see different herbs and in my thoughts I taste a cup a tea made of mint. I see different birds. And lots of butterflies. Most the them white and yellow. It gives me a peaceful feeling.

    There is a graveyard right outside my window , as well as trees. It is always a peaceful experience looking outside this window

  • Eduard Bosch says:

    There is only movement, which = relaxing vs my many thoughts.

    • Vered Neta says:

      Thanks for your wonderful insight from this exercise Eduard

  • I got into a pleasant slowdown through this exercise. It’s a very good way to get into the moment and I could really feel how tired I actually am at the moment…

    • Vered Neta says:

      Thanks Ben for your honest sharing. It’s so true sometimes when we’re not in the moment we don’t even notice how tired we are until it’s too late.

    This is so nice to do because birds are flying in and out and the insects are zooming all the way around. This is how I start my day regularly.
    Thank you ?.

    Over the years I have found that for me this is the only form of meditation where tinnitus is not a bummer.

    • Vered Neta says:

      Thanks Kees for this sharing and input, maybe others who are suffering from tinnitus could benefit from it

  • Peace, bumblebees who comfort each other, busy bumblebees who have a nest box of the birds were the live in.
    Flowers blooming, fruits and vegtebles are growing.
    Its raining but warm, then the sun comes shining.
    Looks like autumn already started in mid summer.
    Have a nice day.
