Pretty much every time I go to the seaside, I consciously release whatever energies I’m ready to release by choosing a stone and imagining them pouring into that stone before I throw it into the sea – knowing all those energies can be recycled for the benefit of the planet.
Then I take another stone and imagine all the things I want to bring into my life and release that into the sea, too.
At this time of year, just part the Winter Solstice and as we take stock of 2017, let go of what no longer serves us and think about renewal and what we want to bring into our 2018, you might want to try it yourself – this video shows how you might do so.
Are you ready to unblock some of that older energy to start the new year with more openess for all the good life has to offer?
We all know that meditation is good for us. Over the past few decades, modern neuroscience has been able to show actual differences in the brains and bodies of regular meditators.
And you don’t have to become a Buddhist monk or nun to benefit. These classes are secular so you don’t have to believe in anything in order to access your own inner wisdom and a greater sense of personal peace.
Studies show that meditative practices can benefit everything from concentration to heart health, pain management to immunity and general wellbeing.
I first started meditating in 2001 during my crystal therapy training and over the next several years, went through phases where I loved it and did a fair bit and other phases where I missed it.
I didn’t quite believe that taking time to meditate would actually give me a greater sense of time and ease throughout the rest of each day and actually only developed a daily (as in Every Single Day) practice this year after hearing Jon Kabat Zinn speak (click here to read more).
I can’t imagine not meditating each morning any more than I can imagine not brushing my teeth and, if you’d like to make meditation, creative visualisation and relaxation a bigger part of your life, I’d love to help you.
