Sometimes we can be very stressed. Me too. Things can be to overwhelming around you and you can feel that you are simply not enough. And when we are in this stress, the body activates the sympathetic nervous system (the fight and flight mode) and the muscles are tightening, the breathe becomes shallow and it feels like all the energy is up in the head. Recognize this? Well, then I recommend you to try this meditation that will get you grounded and calm again! It super awesome!
How you do it
Sit in easy pose or on a chair. Keep your spine straight and erect. Relax your shoulders.
Place your hands in front of your chest at heart level and press the fingertips together. Press not too hard, but not too little, you´ll feel some tension in the fingers and hands.
The shape of the hands is like a “tipi” (indian tent) or a cone.
Close your eyes and focus on your third eye point, the point inbetween your eyebrows.
Inhale slowly and gently through your mouth and slowly exhale through your nostrils. Continue to breathe in this pattern for 11-31 minutes (if you do it for 30 minutes, it´s good to sleep afterwords), always inhaling through your mouth and exhaling through your nostrils, long deep breathing. When you inhale through your mouth do it gently it´s like you are drinking some golden nectar ☺
To end the meditation: Inhale one more time through your mouth. Hold the breath in. Feeling the energy expanding in your body. And slowly exhale throught he nostril. Just sit and breathe normal for a while and feel the sensation in your body and mind.
You can do this meditation in the morning or whenever during the day. It´s also very good to do before going to bed.
Please tell me how it is working for you, so comment below.
