Here is a very easy meditation exercise for you.
Here is a very simple meditation exercise, and one I am sure you will find helpful. Make sure you are seated straight and in a quiet and comfortable place, you have chosen your mantra and are ready to begin… Here it is.
- Sit comfortable, start at the top of your head and relax, feel your eyes sink and relax, your cheeks next and your mouth. Next your neck and shoulders, feel the relaxation travel down your arms to your fingers. Then relax your abdomen, do not suck it in anymore (I hold mine in all day, I think most of us do) let it relax, as you breath in it should fill like a beach ball and as you exhale it should collapse back in (Remember as you relax to keep the good Posture). Lastly relax you legs and feel the tension drain into the floor through your feet… you may even feel yourself sinking into the ground, this is good.
- Now focus on your breath, watch it from a distance as it travels into your body and fills your lungs and how it travels out… do not control it just watch it.
- After about 10-15 breaths… when you can feel like an observer to your body, and have let go of all the control you exert over it. Start to chant your mantra while still watching the breath with a corner of your mind. After about 20 mantras go back to watching the breath again, and then back to your mantra (Stick with the same one for the meditation, do not switch it within the same meditation). Continue alternating until 20 min is up.
- Then SLOWLY open your eyes and sit quietly for about 1-2 minutes and just live in the sensations you have. Then try to carry that feeling with you for your day.
This is only the first of many more Meditation exercises that I will be adding to the site.
I hope you will enjoy this one and that it will make a positive change in your life…
