Easily Achieve Equilibrium
A daily meditation practice is a powerful tool. It can decrease stress and increase your sense of well being and above all bring a sense of equilibrium to your life when you feel you are being pulled in 10 different directions. As I pursue my teacher certification in Mindfulness Meditation I want to share its benefits with those I love and connect with. When I mention to my clients and friends that I meditate daily the usual response is: "I wish I could do that."
My response is: "You can absolutely do it and it will significantly impact your life."
If you would like to try it here are two simple steps. Set aside 10 minutes and read the instructions below beautifully written by Thich Nhat Hanh. I would love to hear about your experience so please post a comment. If you need help getting started, I would be happy to sit with you in meditation either in person or via Zoom.
"Sit down in whatever position suits you, back straight, smile on your face.
Breathe slowly and deeply, following each breath, becoming one with the breath.
Then let go of everything.
Imagine yourself as a pebble which has been thrown into a river. The pebble sinks through the water effortlessly. Detached from everything, it falls the shortest distance possible, finally reaching the bottom, the point of perfect rest. You are like a pebble which has let itself fall into the river, letting go of everything. At the center of your being is your breath. When you feel yourself resting like a pebble which has reached the riverbed, that is the point when you begin your own rest. You are no loner pushed or pulled by anything."
