Sit crossed legged with a straight spine, head slightly lowered and fingers in the chin mudra position (if this isn’t comfortable, choose any seated or lying down position with the hands together in front of the chest, palms lightly together, and thumbs and little fingers touching one another).
Inhale deeply through the nose, feeling the belly area expand and hold for approximately five seconds. As you inhale, we may feel the chest expanding slightly as this allows the heart chakra to open and lets loving energy circulate. You can then exhale slowly through the mouth.
Pause for only a few seconds before deeply inhaling again as above and then exhaling once again, while allowing any thoughts in the mind to spin aimlessly around.
You may likely notice that one significant thought continuously repeats itself. If so, focus the attention briefly on it, and acknowledge any feelings that are attached to it. Then, on the exhale breath, envisage gently blowing the thought away.
Continue this process with any other persistent thoughts in the mind. Allow each of them a few moments before releasing them softly.
Once you feel calmer, we can then inhale deeply while keeping our awareness on the new beginning you many wish to incorporate into our life.
You can use the exhale breath to focus on whatever you wish to eradicate from your life.
If it helps, you can think of either a mantra or phrase to repeat in our mind that relates to your new beginning and sends a clear message out to the universe stating what you want. One example could be “I am open to giving and receiving unlimited, unconditional love,” or “I am inviting in this positive new beginning.” You can also try visualizing a person, place, or object that is connected to our new start and also invokes positive feelings.
On the exhale breath, you can choose a mantra that lovingly releases what you no longer want, such as, “I am letting go with love and gratitude.”
As you remain in this calm setting, you may begin to feel a warming sensation filled with good feelings rippling through your body and mind. The more positivity and faith you have in your ability to manifest, the greater chance you have of absorbing your thoughts and feelings so that they can come true.
Each inhale of breath signifies a new beginning, and each exhale signifies an ending.
As you continue inhaling and exhaling our beginnings and endings will start to flow as one, allowing the desired new intentions to firmly embed in your hearts and minds.
Even though the above exercise may seem simple, it will have a powerful effect on our future as we have set a clear intention for what it is we want to receive. You don’t need to worry if you change your minds about what you want right now, you can alter your intentions by repeating the exercise whenever you choose.
Once you have completed the meditation, you can then transfer our brand new empowered thinking, wishes, and beliefs into your daily lives so that you start living as though every small step you are taking is a step closer to touching your wildest dreams.
