Simple Meditation Exercises|
Take a few steady breaths until you feel calm, concentrate on your
breathing steadily inhaling and exhaling. Let go of your breathing,
concentrate on nothing. Be aware of every sound, touch, smell and
thought but don’t act upon them. Witness them come and go, nothing
more. When you are done concentrate on your breathing and ground
Choose a suitable space to walk through. Place both hands just above
your belly button, one on top of the other. Synchronise your breathing
with your step. Inhale, step. Exhale, step and so on. After you have
done this a few times you can adjust it to your normal speed.
Your mantra can be anything that
invokes a feeling of peace and wellbeing inside you. "Om Mani Padme
Hum” is a traditional mantra that means jewel in the lotus.
Alternative mantras could be "Love of God", "In peace and
love”, “Womb of The Goddess” or whatever sounds right to you. Meditate
as you would usually and whisper your mantra on your exhaled breath.
