Solstice Prep Meditation (Free MP3)
First, just a reminder that the final teleseminar for this Fall starts next Sunday, November 25th – Ancient Egyptian Mysticism. This will be a fun one, and I’d love to have many of you join us!
We are moving into ‘Solstice prep’ season – the period leading into a Solstice when you can feel the energy pulling you towards it. These periods are particularly good times for rebirths – for releasing that which we don’t need, and planting seeds for that which we wish to attract or manifest, in ourselves or our lives. To support you in this process I wanted to offer you a gentle and flexible chakra-based meditation for letting go of that which no longer serves you, and pulling in that which does.
This meditation works with the breath; after all, we do exactly this – pull in what we need, release what we don’t – with every breath. Our body does this continuously in a natural way. And we can do this on an energetic and emotional level as well. In this meditation, with every breath you will exhale an emotion or energy that you don’t need, related to the chakra you are focusing on, and then inhale that which you do.
I Breathe Out I Breathe In Meditation – 17 minutes (you should be able to save this to your hard drive if you prefer after clicking by doing a ‘Save As’ in your browser.)
For those who prefer to do it on their own, here are the phrases I am using in the meditation, but you can adapt them as you see fit:
1st/Root Chakra: I breathe out fear, I breathe in trust.
2nd/Sacral Chakra: I breathe out shame, I breathe in joy.
3rd/Navel Chakra: I breathe out division, I breathe in acceptance.
4th/Heart Chakra: I breathe out unworthiness, I breathe in love.
5th/Throat Chakra: I breathe out dishonesty, I breathe in authenticity.
6th/Third Eye Chakra: I breathe out limitation, I breathe in possibility.
7th/Crown Chakra: I breathe out doubt, I breathe in bliss.
In honor of Thanksgiving, I’ve also described a chakra-based gratitude practice over at Buddha Chick Life, if you are interested in that.
I’d love to hear how you honor Solstice, if you do, and what you are hoping to release/attract? Namaste-
