Meditate to Reconnect.
Mediation is a game changer. Meditation guides us back to our calmest, clearest, wisest selves. Meditation clears away the noise that causes us stress and toxicity in our body. Meditation empowers us in ways nothing else can.
I’ve found that when I am connected to me, through my meditation practice and through journaling, every choice I make emanates from a place of deep connectedness. When I don’t journal or mediate, the same thing happens with the likely twist, every choice I make emanates from a place of disconnectedness.
I encourage you to consider the ways you spend time connecting to you, and what matters most to you, and how you spend time connecting to that source of power that is you.
You connected to you has everything to do with everything, including your health and wellbeing, including your success and happiness.
Meditate to reconnect to you.
Sit in a position that you feel both comfortable and alert, with your back straight and erect, yet not rigid. Close your eyes, or slightly close your eyes to block out distraction.
For your breathwork, you can inhale and exhale through your nose, or you can inhale through your nose, and exhale through your mouth. Whichever you choose, stick with it through your meditation practice.
I love the 100 breaths technique. It’ easy, and unobtrusive. You simply count from 1 to 100 with each breath you take. That’s it. Easy-Peasy.
I also love adding a word to the in-breath and a word to the out-breath when I meditate, like love and fear, or calm and let go. For example, when you breath in, breath in saying the word love silently to yourself, and when you breath out, say the word fear silently to yourself.
If you don’t have any experience mediating, I recommend using guided meditations to help you get started. Meditation teacher, Tara Brach offers a wonderful of free meditations and meditation resources at her site . Author, speaker and Mind-Body Healer, Deepak Chopra offers several wonderful free guided mediations at his site too. And even though I have experience meditating, when I feel harried by the busyness of life, I return to guided meditations. They are so helpful.
If you already meditate and would like a support that guides you with breath, not words, I love Do As One. It offers several online breathing ‘rooms’ to suit your needs or style. My favorite is the “Calm Breathing Room.” It really slows me down when I need it.
Do As One uses technology to offer the sweet, subtle pull to inner silence that we all so desperately need at times — the times we need a little reminder — a reminder that we’re good, that we’ve got this, that we are so powerful beyond measure and that nothing else matters, but this moment.
