Today, I was blessed to lead meditation. Thank you to all who participated.
When I was preparing, I used my inspiration from last week. These words stuck with me all week and helped me during some stressful moments in the week. Below is the guided meditation that I led this morning and I hope you can benefit from it too.
I invite you to be open yourself up and begin with some deep and focused breaths.
Feel your feet. They are our foundation. With every step, we are in movement. We take action by simply moving our feet.
Move up to your calfs. Feel the strength in your calfs, your knees and your thighs. Appreciate their abilities and the miracle in how they work together.
Move up to your pelvis, stomach, and chest. This equipment that helps us move, survive and breathe are amazing. Even sitting still, our insides are always moving, keeping us alive and going.
Think about your arms and shoulders. They reach for you, they hug for you and help you carry the burdens.
Your neck and head are the top of the body. Some of you shared before that you carry tension in your neck and shoulders. Focus on a few deep breaths to allow the tension to leave your body whether it is here or elsewhere in your body.
Now begin your journey to deeper meditation with the following words:
Love - Be Kind - Heal - Find Peace
Using these words as a road map, use your meditation as a walk on a thoughtful path.
Love - I invite you to immerse yourself in love. As you focus your breathing, think of those who bring you love. Think of those who you love. As you take a few breaths, focus on one who needs your love right now.
Be Kind - I invite you now to immerse yourself in kindness. As you focus your breathing, think of those who have shown you kindness. Think of those who need your kindness. As you take a few breaths, focus on one who needs your kindness right now.
Heal - I invite you now to immerse yourself in healing. As you focus your breathing, think of those who have helped you heal. Think of those who you have helped to heal. As you take a few breaths, focus on one who needs healing right now.
Find Peace - I invite you now to immerse yourself in peace. As you focus your breathing, think of those who offer you peace. Think of those who have helped you find peace. As you take a few breaths, focus on one who needs peace right now.
As we take the next 10 minutes for silent meditation, think of these words as a journey themselves- love, be kind, heal, find peace
(10 minutes of silent meditation)
Take one more minute on your path. Love, Be Kind, Heal, Find Peace.
