Now this is not your typical meditation, you know I have to be a little extra. Once I have made it to my terminal I began by breathing in and out slowly focusing on now and not the future. I go from the traditional meditation to my very own by stating facts about planes and pilots. I will state the statistics of plane crashes to car crashes and how pilots have to be trained and know what to do in any given situation. I tell myself turbulence is normal and if I feel it DO NOT PANIC I repeat, Do Not Panic!
I will go from stating facts to actually yelling at myself for being scared in the first place. Things like, “why are you so scary, people would love to get on a plane.” to “stop being a scary bitch and woman the F up.” I know it gets a little extreme but for me it works! My final stage of meditation is singing Destiny’s Child survivor, because Beyoncé always has the answers.
