Feeling like you don’t have time to meditate? Here are some fun ways to sneak it in to your day!
1). Get a jar of soap bubbles. Seriously! The kind with a magic wand inside. Then when you get stressed, imagine you put the stress into the bubble as you blow it and then have fun watching it pop.
2). When you’re head feels busy, imagine you bring your awareness to an area right behind your eyes in the center of your head. As if you’re in the eye of a hurricane, let all those busy thoughts just float outside your head as you create a calm sanctuary all around you.
3). In a crowd, imagine you can feel all the hearts around you. What do they feel like? I find it fascinating to do this in different environments. It is also a great way to get out of our small selves and remember how similar we all are.
4). What happens to you in transitions, for example between home and work or work and being with your loved ones? Consider that when you go from one place to another you take all of you with you! Imagine a gold ball of light that magnetizes and neutralizes all of your energy that was at work, for instance, and draw that light into you as you leave work.
5). Anytime you feel spaced out, imagine a gauge that shows you 0-100% and ask, “How much am I here right now?” If less than 100%, turn the dial up to 100% and see how you feel!
6). Feel your feet. Even better to take your shoes off or put them in the dirt, but anywhere will do! Rub your feet on the ground til the bottoms of your feet start to tingle, and imagine the earth’s energy flowing up your legs.
7). Feel your seat. Pretend you are sitting on your favorite tree trunk and imagine it’s as wide as your hips with roots deep into the center of the earth.
8). Breathe. With every exhale imagine letting any tension you’ve been holding fall down your tree trunk.
9). Just like choosing what color to wear in the morning, choose what color energy you’d like to “wear”. Imagine a bubble around you of that color. It’s fun to change it periodically and see how people respond to you!
10). Pick a part of your body or life you’re unhappy with, and decide just for one minute to love it just as it is. Breathe into it, send beautiful colored light there, speak or write your love and apology for judging it– whatever feels best to you. For one minute. Then go on with your day and see if perhaps you feel more energy?
If you like these mini-meditations, imagine the power of a deeper and longer (but still do-able!) meditation, guided by a soothing voice, in the comfort of your own home! You can experience that in the meditation products we offer.
