Cabin in the woods. Meditation exercise.

Good morning!!! I woke up today thinking I wanted to change my blog design a little. I knew I wanted something narrow that gives a cozy feeling to my blog. I picked this background templete designed by shabbyblogs called "At the cabin". I loved it, because I've always have imagined living at a cabin in the woods, or at least going there when I want to disconnect from the world but connect with myself, and be surrounded with peace, nature, and creativity. Just like the cabin Ursula has at kikis delivery service, I love it so much, I think is my favorite part of the movie, just because of that.

Is that a very common dream for people? I have my doubts, most of the people seem to like noise, or maybe they haven't stop to think about it, because of the noise itself, a vicious cycle. 

Sometimes I do this exercise I created myself, and it is something like going to a cabin in the woods would feel, only that you can do this exercise almost anywhere. I go to a silent solitary place, my bedroom the most of the time, I close the door and lie on my bed, in a comfortable position I close my eyes, and I just focus on myself, trying to invade my body with consciousness, and focusing in the deepest part of my being. I feel like just myself matter, my necessities, my thoughts and ideas, not in a selfish way, but in a lovely act of kindness to myself. I've always been a very insecure person, and doing this exercise has helped so much. Lately I feel so much confident of my self, and I'm not influenced by other people like I used to be. I've been working with chakras exercises too, specially with the solar plexus, represented by color yellow, which is the will and personal power chakra. 

So, if you tend to be an insecure person I'm sure you have many other talents, but if you don't work with this weakens, any of them will shine. But don't worry, if you have the desire to change for good, eventually you'll do it.

I'd like to read what do you do when you feel insecure about yourself, please share it in the comments section.
