Buddha was asked what he gained from meditation. He replied: “Nothing, but let me tell you what I have lost: Anger, anxiety, insecurity, depression, and fear of old age and death.” When it comes to balancing your chakras, meditation is one effective way to help keep energy centres in check for overall well-being. Keep in mind that meditation is also a way of being. Being very mindful and present as you go through your day is a form of meditation. However, setting aside some time to practice meditation can ensure you’re focusing on yourself. Here are just a few benefits: • Mind - builds focus and concentration, cultivates will power, adds clarity • Body - decreases pain, boosts immune system, lowers blood pressure • Soul - increases compassion, builds self awareness and sense of purpose There are many types of meditation, but I take cues from nature before I immerse myself into a session. I’ve posted some photos I took of sacred trees while in Bali as inspiration to help with visualization: • Strong roots - picture roots growing deep into the earth from the base of your spine while in seated position. • Strong trunk - lengthen your spine so source energy and light can flow freely through your chakras.
• Grace of branches and leaves - mimic the delicate branches and leaves that sprout with purpose and beauty with your fingers as you form mudras.
It’s important to be gentle with yourself when meditating. Don’t have any expectations (i.e. Levitating upon being seated.) Though, setting an intention for your practice helps add clarity post session. #heartcorehealer #heartwisdom #meditation#meditationpractice #tree #bethelight#energyhealing #motivation #wordstoliveby#buddha #anxiety #insomnia #chakrahealing#chakrabalancing #mindbodyandsoul #inmypastlifeiwasatree
