This meditation is short and is perfect to use when you feel overwhelmed, unbalanced or not sure of a situation.
Taking the time to check in with yourself is key to your personal wellness. Wellness is more than spa days, holistic products, essential oils and what we eat. Wellness is learning to live authentically and creating the best life that is meant only for you!
Set yourself up in a nice comfortable seated position. You can sit on the floor, chair or against the wall with support.
Close your eyes and start to observe your breath. Start to take deep inhales and exhales through your nose.
Start to exhale the breath into the heart space. Exhaling several times and start to feel the space release.
Now, start to inhale and exhale into your heart space. As you take the breath into the heart, start to feel any sensations that might come up. If any stuck feelings or thoughts come up, start to exhale them out through your nose or mouth.
Once you feel connected to your heart, ask your heart, "What am I holding onto here?"
Take a few moments and listen to what the heart has to say. Then ask, "What do I need to do to let go?"
Take another few moments and listen to what comes up. Then ask, "What does my heart want to feel instead?"
Allow what the heart wants to feel to sink in for a few minutes and open your eyes.
Learning what the heart needs to feel will guide you to how you can live more in love. You can also use this mediation to ask about a situation and how you should move forward with it. By starting to see what we hold on to and what we can let go, we start to learn what we need in our lives and where we can move to change if needed.
