Today's episode is a guided meditation using mala beads or imaginary malas if you don't have any. The most important first step is to set a clear intention of what you would like to feel or accomplish in our time together. What is it that you desire? Happiness, healthiness, peacefulness, harmony, centering, protection, confidence, success, or to release fear, worry, or anxiety? Take a minute to come up with a clear intention before we begin….
Now let's put your intention into an “I am statement.” For instance, I am confident, I am peaceful, or I am free of worry or fear. Next, we are going to combine the “I am statement” with breath work and the mala beads. If you don't have beads, just imagine a small round stone or actually place a stone in your hand as a place keeper. In the following meditation, we will breathe in our “I am statement” and then breathe out on each bead. Applying the pattern of having the 27th bead as a marker, we will change our breathwork slightly on the next set of 27.
Just follow along and focus on your specific intention that you would like to accomplish. Breathe in through the nose. I am peaceful or whatever “I am statement” that you've chosen, rolling the bead or stone between your thumb and index finger. Then breathe out in two short breaths through the mouth. Pulling the strand of beads towards your body to bring the I am positive intention or the karma towards you. That completes the first bead of the first set. This episode continues the meditation with four different breath work patterns completing all 108 mala beads.
Join in to call in happiness, healthiness, peacefulness, harmony, centering or protection. Perhaps you will choose to call in confidence or success or to release worry, fear or anxiety.
