Relax, refresh & reset your energy
New to meditation?
These handy starters will introduce you to relaxation meditation for beginners or those ready to learn the easy way using my streamlined methods that are purposefully designed and created to help you shift out of doldrums and into vibrant living in just a few minutes. It’s all about energy – specifically the energy swirling around inside your body and emanating out into the world. When you get a handle on that knowledge you don’t need to keep reliving through old stories of the past. You can see them as the challenges that helped you transform and start living the way you were meant to: dancing to your own inner tune – or attunement.
Easy DIY for relaxation
The simplest form of meditation is to get comfortable and use one of the following focal points until a sense of calm is felt – no tools necessary. Use the Clock app on your cell phone to set reminders to meditate throughout the day for a constant subtle shift into a world of inner peace and relaxation. Remember to always breathe into your belly and focus you mind on any of these things for a few minutes throughout the day.
- your breath
- your heart space
- stare at the back of your eyelids
- a spot on the wall
- the sky
That’s it! It’s really that easy.
The transcript is included for those who are hard of hearing, especially when it comes to relaxation audios. Also, if you read the transcript allowed it will lull you into a relaxed state just by speaking it. I know because it happened to me while I was creating it.
- guided gentle descent down a grand white spiral staircase (4 mins)
Use alone or reinforce your Ho’oponopono, mantras, decrees and affirmations by tapping the new positive energy into your body to help it anchor in the changes.
The place to do that is at the Thymus Gland AKA High Heart Chakra, which is an instantly accessible place of power on the body. It is located between the clavicle and cleavage points on the chest…at the spot where a necklace pendant usually sits. You will know it when you start tapping.
Tap with the 3 middle fingers lightly at a rate of 2 taps/sec to help shift the nervous system into a state of calm. Perfect for anxiety, including those nasty panic attacks or helping a toddler shift out of a tantrum.
Shifting financial flow
Let’s take an issue that is common for many people: finances. Two quick ways to discern how you feel about it is to do either one of these things and pay attention to the feeling(s) that are triggered within you.
- download a bank statement and review a month of transactions OR
- buy a more pricey brand of a particular item that you normally buy at a grocery store, such as coffee/tea, pasta/sauce
Does doing either of these things cause you to tense up anywhere in your body? If so, you’re out of flow if looking at your bank statement makes you cringe or you have resistance to spending more than you usually do for an item.
Refer to the Consciousness Frequency Scale on the Awareness page to check your frequency state and use the above tools to raise it back into neutral state (200 or higher) to begin flow in the right direction. Then check your feelings around these tasks again and they will be more calm to some degree.
Here are a few fast ways to anchor yourself in this higher flow state around your finances after regrouping and remember when you spend money you are in essence giving it to yourself no matter where you spend it.
- deposit $1 or more into your bank
- spend $1 more on a higher quality item at the grocery store
- donate $1 or more to any cause you feel prompted (panhandler, charity, Xmas kettle)
