A small step on the journey home to the heart and peace.
Today's micro meditation is about layer 2 of our meditation series (previously posted). If you read part 2, I discussed PAUSED BREATH as the first layer/tool of meditation. Today we introduce layer 2 of a 5 layer process. Note that the goal is to use these layers as often as you need, in order to release distraction and increase the power of your meditation. At any point however, you can release any layers that aren't calling to you in the moment or working to help you find peace.
So layer 2, breathing to the crown and heart chakras. This connects us deeper to our heart and centre of being but also illuminates our energy and aura! So this is a visualisation technique as well as a deeper aspect of spacial awareness. Here's how you incorporate this breath, as you breathe in, you will imagine the breath coming down from the crown of your head and into your heart space, we honor the pause, and then as we exhale, we imagine the breathe releasing up to the crown. Naturally, the breath moves down on the inhale as it's being pulled down towards the heart, and released up into the crown chakra on an exhale. Visualising this and following the breath in your body makes for a very powerful layer 2 in this series.
Reminder, these meditations are meant to be simple yet strong and something you can manage even at the busiest of times and in the busiest of lives! For now, practice your paused breath and spacial awareness of the heart and crown as you breathe into them. . Be easy, take time, you are coming home to yourself.
