Life Coach Portland, Oregon: How to Be Observing Instead of Judging

Be Observing

How to Be Observing Instead of Judging

I’m interested in Mindfulness meditation and use suggestions related to my practice with my clients. Nothing preachy or heavy.

Learning how to be observing rather than judging is a great way to feel centered and good about yourself. I notice clients who are hard on themselves benefit the most from this work.

Try this:

  1. Breathe in a comfortable way so that you’re aware of the rhythm of it
  2. Make sure you’re in a quiet place where you can just relax.
  3. Close your eyes and consider the last time you took a strong position against something. You’ll want to find something that gives you a feeling in your body. The gut, the head.
  4. While your eyes are closed, look at the situation or object and see if you can substitute a sense of openness about it.
  5. Allow yourself to note the details of  this clearly to yourself.
  6. You are teaching yourself to consider something that might have needed changing rather than judged good or bad.
  7. Note this difference between observation and judgement.
  8. When you’re finished with the exercise, write down the difference between your judgement and your observation.
