Ok, seriously are you sick of me saying self-care? The meditation for this month is the self care breath. I figure we can’t overdo self care. Especially you guys and I am including myself in this hahahaha. We need the reminder because we all have had a habit of putting ourselves at the bottom of the list. But that is changing and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, putting ourselves equally into the equation of our day!
This is a great meditation. It is simple, you can do it anywhere and it will invigorate you, boost your immune system, increase your inner energy, and strengthen your parasympathetic nervous system.
Here’s a quick run through but I’ve sent all my subscribers the video. (If you’d like to join this group, click here and you’ll get it right away.)
Sit with a nice, tall spine. You can sit in a chair if you want or even do it in your car while you are waiting for your kids (not while you’re driving though!!!). Put your left hand on your heart center and your right hand over it. Close your eyes. Make a ring with your lips, like an O shape. We are going to do a cannon breath through that ring.
Feel the heart center below your hands and focus on the breath coming out of your O shaped lips, as if you were making rings in the air. Stay with it. When we end, we will inhale, hold the breath and you will silently say: I am beautiful, I am innocent, I am innocent, I am beautiful. Exhale through the nose. Repeat that 5 times. Then feel the sensation. The before you did it and the after you did it. Observe!!!
Enjoy!!!! Use this as we transition from summer to fall, back to routine, school, work, shorter days etc. Do this everyday and experiment with this tool for your mental, emotional, and physical health!
Love you all!!!! Happy September
