The Two Minute Meditation

By  |  0 Comments

In the time it takes for you to read this article you could do a meditation.

This is a meditation for busy people, people who are always on the go yet still recognise the importance of being connected to their spiritual centre. No matter how hectic your day becomes this exercise can help you remain grounded.

Breathe deeply and make sure your feet are flat on the floor; you can either be standing or sitting, just ensure your feet are in contact with the earth’s energy. Take two more long, slow breaths just like before – Breathing in the ‘new’ and breathing out the ‘old’.

As you take these deep, cleansing breaths that are revitalising every cell in your body with pure, universal energy, feel that energy flowing through you – through the top of your head all the way down to the soles of your feet where you are anchored.

Start to sense every area of your body via your breathing – place your focus on your body, your head and face, your neck, your shoulders, your arms, your hands, your fingers, breathing deeply as you sense the energy within your torso, the front of your body, your chest, your abdomen, your pelvis, your back and spinal column, and then your legs and feet.

Continue to breathe deeply as you feel yourself grounded to the abundance of the earth and connected to the wisdom of the universe – you are a bridge centred between these spheres.

Complete your meditation with thanks for all the good things that you have created in your life.

You’re ready to start your day.  Enjoy it with gratitude.

If you get into the practice of doing this regularly you will start to feel the difference this grounding and centring meditation makes to your day. It will help to clear the mind, bring balance to the emotions, revitalise the cells of the body and rejuvenate the spirit – just you, your breathing and two minutes of stillness in your day. In time add a few minutes more whenever you can. The more time you spend in stillness, the more grounded you become and the less emotional and mental clutter you will carry.

Become creative and add affirmations to your two minute meditation, your subconscious is always listening to your inner dialogue. Why not choose this time to talk to it positively, to set you right for the day, or inhale an essential oil, or hold a crystal (or do all three). These are vibrational, holistic tools to add further balance to your spiritual being in its physical home.

Give yourself the two minute gift of stillness everyday and it will remind you that you are a spiritual being having a physical existence – not the other way around.
