Welcome to the Meditation Corner. Simply read along and allow the experience of meditation to unfold for you.
There will be meditations for all ages so parents and guardians encourage the kids to do the Silent Center For Kidz Meditation or do it with them. It is a fun and simple technique for them to use everyday.
The ones I am sharing with you are very personal to me as well as part of my meditation programs. These programs are held in groups as well as private sessions. Contact me for any questions or to set up a session.
What is meditation?
A simple, natural process of intention and breath awareness. You already are in intention, now lets breathe and allow. It is the time you take to unite mind, heart, body and Spirit. The secret to meditation is consistency and to trust that you are having an energetic and Spiritual experience whether your “mind” wanders or not. It is the most powerful tool we have, as humans, to stay connected to God, Oneness , our Spirit.
To prepare for meditation create a comfortable environment. Music, candles and incense are always nice but not necessary.
If you are tired, please sit up with your back/spine straight to help you not fall asleep.
First, you will create in your mind a Sacred Shelf or Sacred Box where you will place all distractions.
If your distraction is a person in your life, then you will simply say or think, “I place you in the box/shelf at this time to be blessed and in Divine Order”.
You may have to do this many times or maybe not at all.
What is important is you are letting go of the less than positive emotions and or distractions that would have connected to you and caused even longer and more intense distraction.
Daily Inner Light Meditation
Begin or end your day with this meditation!
Om at this place if you wish or just be. Whether you hold for few minutes or half hour it will be raising vibration, strengthening immune and nervous system. Also helps your intuition and focus. It is the most powerful act of SELF LOVE.
You have now energized and heart chakra, all events of day will flow in this source and direction. Remember to periodically go to heart and repeat Divine Light (inhale Divine, exhale Light). Whether to send love, energize, express gratitude, or share (visualize light around someone or Mother Earth).
Meditation for Intuition and Self Love
These Sacred tools can be used throughout the day, week, and life. Begin with breath awareness. You will inhale slowly and comfortably and count silently to 4 as you take breath in.
Exhale to 6 slowly, comfortably. Imagine filling the lower belly with air like a balloon. Let the air naturally release and then gently contract belly to push out air from lungs. Remember to be as natural as possible. The rhythm will begin to take over after a few moments. TRUST
Do this for 8 breaths then increase inhale to 6 and exhale to 8. Allow for 4 breaths then allow breath to flow into a natural rhythm. It will be automatic…
If you want to keep track of your meditations simply write down your thoughts and how you feel immediately after.
It is a simple way to keep track and be open to the wisdom and guidance that is being offered. Please know I am here if you wish to share or have any questions.
Silent Circle for Kidz
Imagine a place you can go to do anything you want! There is such a place and it is deep inside your heart. It is a quiet place even when there is noise and distracting things around you; even when there is nothing to do.
You get to this “place” by choosing to go there in your mind. We will call this place your Silent Circle.
We will begin by creating a circle in your mind. You will do this by closing your eyes and imagine your forehead is a movie screen. Using your imagination create a big circle. Pretend to draw it with a crayon or marker if it helps. Now inside the big circle draw a smaller circle.
Remember if you can create the image, you can and will make it real.
Imagine a place you can go and do anything you want!
Below you will learn how to go to that place.
This place will be called your Silent Circle.
WHY? Sometimes we need a… place to be alone with our thoughts and feelings. Quiet time, cry time, even angry feelings, time to dream about what we want to be when we grow up, dance, sing, and draw. All of these are important to do for our self.
When is it time to go to my Silent Circle?
You should go at least once a day. When you wake up in the morning is great, but sometimes there is no time. If you do it every day it will be easier and automatic, like brushing your teeth.
Bedtime is a very good time!
You can do it in times of need… studying, worrying, anger, fears, frustration.
You can even do it when you’re happy or grateful.
Don’t forget you can share with someone, how to get to their Circle if they need.
How do you get there?
This place can be as quick as choosing to go, taking a deep breath, and letting everything else just melt away.
Steps to Silent Circle
You can go to it any time, place your hand on it and smile anytime.
Remember don’t wait for those things to come. Trust and believe in the energy you put out. It will come to you when it is “time.” And sometimes your time wants it faster than what is really for the best.
You are learning how not to think about what you do not have and be grateful for what is all good around you!
Use these steps if you want to relax and meditate…
Do this every day at least twice.
Once before school and again at bedtime for sure.
Chanting is a great way to still the mind, relax emotions and just be. You are uniting mind, heart, body and Spirit with the sacred sound of OM.
Every cell in your being will recognize your intention for this Spiritual time out. You will relax or re-energize, depending on your needs at the time. You also open your intuitive channels and connect to God. So get comfortable and lets OM.
Create Sacred Place or environment to relax
When you chant this sacred sound, inhale slowly and comfortably.
Exhale the sound and take your time in each syllable
The Health Benefits of Meditation
While the practice of meditation has been around for thousands of years, only recently has there been actual scientific evidence proving that meditation can have a positive impact on your physical health. Now that the hard science has caught up, many more individuals are starting to incorporate meditation in their daily lives. Not only can daily meditation lead to deep mental and physical relaxation, it also promotes many other benefits for the mind, body and spirit.
On a physical level, the practice of deep breathing can lead to an increase in exercise tolerance, decreased muscle tension, higher energy levels and boosts the immune system. Mentally, daily meditation can build self-confidence, increase creativity, promotes overall composure and develops emotional maturity.
We all strive to achieve a more fulfilling life that is full of happiness, calm and success, but rarely do we take the time to focus on how we can bring these positive changes into our lives. Through meditation, we can gain more clarity on these things and attain enlightenment.
