The 9 attitudes to embrace (By Jon Kabat-Zinn) while doing your mindfulness meditation classes or practices are: 1. Beginner’s mind. 2. Patience. 3. Letting go 4. Non-judgemental 5. Generosity 6. Gratitude 7. Trust 8. Non-striving (non-doing) 9. Acceptance
Definition of mindfulness meditation by JKZ is “awareness that arises when we pay attention, on purpose, non-judgmentally’ and the idea of ‘waking up from automatic pilot’.
Without awareness of our body, feelings and emotions, will be more difficult to understand where we are at, at any given moment. Embodiment has a different meaning for everybody.
I would say that embodiment is being and feeling at home in our body. Every little sensation, feeling, of any kind is part of the embodiment state. Everything that we feel, hear, see, notice and know, is because of our body, and when we are at home that is an embodiment of ourselves.
We can also be an embodiment of kindness, or compassion, or an embodiment of love, as described by somebody else. Our embodiment can be our personal journey in life, of what we would value most. Whatever we would like to be and become can be our most authentic embodiment. As I mentioned before, we can be an embodiment of love, compassion, gentleness, creativity, etc. and that is also being authentic to ourselves.
According to Jon Kabat Zinn description is living our life authentically, realistically, like it matters. Living your truth for now, as the truth can change in time at any moment. Being embody of who we are at this moment, being authentic with our way of thinking, and being at each particular time and moment. Being present as you are, and authentic to being yourself.
