Feeling out of balance? Try this simple practice to tap into a sense of inner balance and equilibrium.
Read it here:
Adopt a relaxed yet alert standing or sitting position with your spine aligned and upright.
Focus on the way your spine lengthens and expands as you breathe in, and how it relaxes and softens in a subtle wavelike movement as you breathe out. Repeat this for a few rounds.
Now, as you breathe in imagine you are drawing light in through the crown of your head and down into your heart.
Breathe out from your heart, visualising the light flowing down through your body, your legs and feet and into the earth.
Breathe in and draw the light back up from the earth and into your heart.
Breathe out, taking the light up from your heart and out through your crown.
With each breath feel yourself filling with light and joy.
Connect to the strength of the earth beneath you and to the open, vast, limitless sky above.
Continue breathing in this rhythm for as long as you feel comfortable. Centre into your body with your breath.
Mind Taming Peace Mantra:
I am balanced. I am centred.
My body, mind and spirit are one.
This is taken from my book Peace Lies Within: 108 ways to tame your mind and connect to inner peace, available now from Amazon.
