If you feel like you want to start meditating but don’t know how to begin or where to begin, here’s a tip:
In the past couple of weeks I have found that beginning my day with a meditation is very helpful in balancing my energy output, setting intentions for the day, and tuning in intuitively so that I can focus on the right tasks.
Some days I can’t always sit in my meditation room and complete a lovely 30-minute meditation… so what to do? Meditate in the shower!
- Get in the shower and do all of your regular, daily tasks (wash hair, shave butt, brush teeth, etc.)
- Before you get out of the shower, take some time to meditate:
- Stand with the water pouring directly onto your crown chakra (that’s on the top of your head), palms facing up towards the sky.
- Begin taking deep breaths, imagining that the water itself is cosmic energy flowing into your crown chakra. Feel the difference in your energy as you assign this comparison.
- Continue breathing, completing full, uniform breaths (stomach expands on the inhale/ diaphragm depresses on the exhale) while stating an intention during the small pauses between each inhalation and exhalation.
*Your intention can be anything relating to your day so long as it is positively stated – avoid using any negative language: i.e. don’t / not / won’t / can’t / should / would.*
- When you feel your hands begin to buzz and you feel a calm relaxing feeling through out and around your body, express gratitude to the universe as you conclude your meditation.
Just remember: meditation is a way for you to reconnect with your higher-self / your soul / the divine. This cannot occur when your mind is continually churning. Using an intention is a way to keep your mind on track and keep you open to outside, positive forces.
