OSHO: Chapter 5: In the Litter of the Wayside
“A sannyasin is a plant, a sprout-soft, delicate. The seed is never in danger, remember. What danger can there be for the seed? It is absolutely protected. But the plant is always in danger, the plant is very soft. The seed is like a stone, hard, hidden behind a hard crust. But the plant has to pass through a thousand and one hazards. That is the second stage; the seed dissolving into the soil, the man disappearing as an ego, disappearing as a personality, becoming a plant.
The third possibility, which is even more rare, because not all plants are going to attain to that height where they can bloom into flowers, a thousand and one flowers. Very few human beings attain to the second stage, and very few of those who attain the second stage attain the third, the stage of the flower. Why can’t they attain the third stage, the stage of the flower? Because of greed, because of miserliness, they are not ready to share because of a state of unlovingness.
Courage is needed to become a plant, and love is needed to become a flower. A flower means the tree is opening up its heart, releasing its perfume, giving its soul, pouring its being into existence. The seed can become a plant although it is difficult to drop the armor, but in one way it is simple. The seed will only be gathering more and more, accumulating more and more; the seed  only takes from the soil. The tree only takes from the water, from the air, from the sun; its greed is not disturbed, on the contrary, its ambition is fulfilled. It goes on becoming bigger and bigger. But a moment comes when you have taken so much that now you have to share. You have been benefitted so much, now you have to serve. God has given you so much, now you have to thank, be grateful-and the only way to be grateful is to shower your treasures, give them back to existence, be as unmiserly as existence has been with you. Then the tree grows into flowers, it blossoms.
And the fourth stage is that of fragrance. The flower is still gross, it is still material, but the fragrance is subtle, it is almost something nonmaterial. You cannot see it, it is invisible. You can only smell it, you cannot break it, you cannot grasp it. A very sensitive understanding is needed to have a dialogue with the fragrance. And beyond fragrance there is nothing. The fragrance disappears into the universe, becomes one with it.
These are the four states of the seed, and these are the four stages of man too. Don’t remain a seed. Gather courage-courage to drop the ego, courage to drop the securities, courage to drop the safeties, courage to be vulnerable. But then don’t remain a tree, because a tree without flowers is poor. A tree without flowers is empty, a tree without flowers is missing something very essential. It has no beauty-without love there is no beauty. And it is only through flowers that the tree shows its love. It has taken so much from the sun and the moon and from the earth; now it is time to give!
Life has to attain a balance always. You have taken so much, now give it. Become a flower! Only when you become a flower is there a possibility of disappearing as a fragrance. But then too, remember, don’t remain a closed flower, don’t remain a bud; otherwise your fragrance will not be released. And unless your fragrance is released, you are not free, you are in a bondage.”

SOUNDS: Choose Meditation Music for the Heart Chakra–YouTube has a wide variety of choices.   One I found was Karunesh Heart Chakra Meditation by My Happy Week

CRYSTALS: “The fair and lovely Rose Quartz, with its gentle pink essence, is a stone of the heart, a Crystal of Unconditional Love. It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort. It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments, and circulates a Divine loving energy throughout the entire aura. Reawakening the heart to its own innate love, it provides a deep sense of personal fulfillment and contentment, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others. [Raphaell, Simmons, & Hall]

Called the Heart Stone, Rose Quartz may have been used as a love token as early as 600 B.C. and is still an important talisman of relationships as it supports connection within groups and community, and carries a high spiritual attunement to the Earth, Universe, and the Divine. [Eason, 50][Simmons, 331][Hall, 236]

Rose Quartz also inspires the love of beauty, in oneself and others, in nature, and especially that which stimulates the imagination – art, music and the written word. [Melody]  “(from crystal vaults.com)

AROMAS:Heart-yang  deficiency needs an oil that awakens the spirit, for instance jasmine, petitgrain, peppermint, myrrh, rose and frankincense………

Sandalwood  has a calming, harmonizing effect and takes away fears and anxiety. It is indicated for hot, agitated emotional states that lead to headaches, insomnia and nervous exhaustion. It is also bitter and astringent, and useful for removing problems of a hot, inflammatory and catarrhal nature. It can be used in all healing work and connects all the chakras one with the other. It connects us to the earth whilst providing health for the mind and consciousness. It settles anxiety, brings self-esteem and opens the heart to receiving healing energy. Yogis describe sandalwood as ‘oil that has a fragrance of the subtle body and the centre of highest insight and enlightenment’

MEDITATION:

Chant Meditation:
The Heart Chakra (Anahata) as our energy point of love and compassion is located  physically just behind the heart area. This chakra can be incredibly powerful when used as a focus for meditation.

Sit cross-legged. Let the tips of your index finger and thumb touch. Put your left hand on your left knee and your right hand in front of the lower part of your breast bone (so a bit above the solar plexus).
Concentrate on the Heart chakra at the spine, level with the heart.
Chant the sound YAM.

YOGA:

Why do we practice? To understand the essence of the Self, to unpack the layers of this Truth. There is no end, just as there is no beginning. Every breath, every muscular integration, each moment of physical and mental connection opens new channels towards understanding. We practice to become intimate with our nature. From there, all else becomes more easeful. By Shira Atkins
Sequence:
1.Down Facing Dog,

2.Low Lunge. From Downward-Facing Dog , step your right foot forward. Gently release your left knee to the floor and reach the arms up into a Low Lunge. Square your hips toward the front end of your mat. Bring your left hand to your left hip, reaching your right arm up. You may stay here or slide your left hand down the inner left leg as your curl your spine back, in, and up to open the heart into a deeper backbend. Next, actively press your left hand into your inner right leg and as the leg and hand resist each other you will feel stronger and avoid sinking into the low back. Isometrically, hug your left knee and right foot in toward each other, this will lift the pelvic floor and help you draw your low belly in and up. Finally press down through your right foot and let the heart fly up a little more. Spend 5 breaths here. change sides

3. Down Facing Dog
4. High Lunge with Shoulder Opener From Downward-Facing Dog, step your right foot forward and rise up into a High Lunge. The right knee is bent at a right angle and the left leg is reaching long and straight behind you. Reach your arms behind you and interlace the fingers. Move your pelvic bones down, as the heart rises up and opens. Lift your low belly and widen your collarbones. Gaze upward without jamming your neck and feel for the spacious of the rising heart energy. Spend 5 breaths here and then repeat on other side

Saturday Crown Connection

The crown chakra is located at the top of our head or in the crown area and corresponds to the violet color. The role of this chakra is based in awakening consciousness and attaining enlightenment through the integration of the self into the one universal form of intelligence.

image            image image

          The energy we conduct of the Higher Force calls its complement into our being. Emanations of Higher Energy become available to transform our lives, recharging and repairing our own systems. Energy upheavals shift us out of destructive habits, encouraging us to relearn integrative ways of being.

          This Chakra is associated with divine wisdom, our spirit, our Oneness with the Universe, our Unity with all that is, and Enlightenment

We use the seventh chakra as a tool to communicate with our spiritual nature. It is through this vortice that the life force is dispersed from the universe into the lower 6 chakras. It has been referred to as our “GOD SOURCE” – but this terminology might be confusing to anyone who equates God with religious dogma, because of this I choose to call it a spiritual connection or communicator.

This chakra is often pictured as a lotus flower opening to allow spiritual awakening in an individual. The crown chakra could also be considered the well intuitive knowing is drawn from.

Spiritual Lesson spirituality, living

If you are often overcome with frustration or bitterness regarding situations which are beyond your control or find yourself struggling with a sense of helplessness and insignificance in the world, then concentrate on freeing your crown chakra.

      And what if you are not at all spiritual, and don’t believe in the existence of anything outside this physical realm? You can still benefit from opening your crown chakra. If you look at life from the perspective of quantum physics, which states that everything is energy, then promoting the free flow of energy of what you want into your own localized energy cluster will make for a richer and more rewarding life. To ACTIVATE, ENERGIZE your chakras, focusing on the Universal ONENESS of all.  YOu are not just a drop in the ocean but the OCEAN.

SOUND:  Select some awesome crown chakra healing music.  One I found was Healing Music of Tambura for Crown Chakra Awakening by Mediative Mind-Meditative Music

CRYSTAL:  Amethyst: Spiritual protection and purification
Clears negative influences and attachments, creating an energetic shield of Light
Increases psychic abilities/intuition

FRAGRANCE: neroli, lavender, frankincense, and geranium essential oils are all  cleansing and purifying essential oils for the Crown Chakra
Remember…… Lavender is useful for all seven main chakras
Essential oils have amazing subtle (energetic or vibrational) qualities. The use of essential oils for energetic purposes is called subtle aromatherapy

In fact, the therapeutic (biochemical) attributes of essential oils are also relevant to energy work because energetic imbalances tend to eventfully manifest in the physical body. Because of this, essential oils and aromatherapy can be said to be inherently multi-dimensional and in essence integrated. For me, this makes them a wonderful bridge between subtle (energetic) and biochemical (clinical) modalities that promote healing, balance and wellness.

MEDITATION:   To open the crown chakra, put your hands before your stomach. Let the ring fingers point up, touching at their tops. Cross the rest of your fingers, with the left thumb underneath the right.
Concentrate on the Crown chakra at the top of your head.
Chant the sound NG.

As we move up the ladder, the higher chakras are more affected by mediation and inner work rather than physical work.

Half Lotus :Start by sitting in an easy pose on the mat. For further support, beginners can sit on a cushion to stay longer in the pose. Lift the left foot and gently place it on the right thigh, while the other foot stays underneath the left thigh. Place the hands on the knees. Stay here and mediate if you can hold for long enough or practice daily to achieve the long duration required for mediation. Why to: Lotus pose or Padamasana is one of the most opted poses for meditation as it neutralises blood pressure, balances the body and calms the mind. Directly tapping into the higher consciousness, half lotus pose extend the same benefits as a full lotus pose and is a great practice for beginners.

For lotus visualization be seated and bring your hands into prayer  at your heart. Bring your awareness to your pelvic floor and let it rest there until you feel grounded, supported, and relaxed. Then begin to glide your awareness up the front of your spine slowly checking in and resting for a moment on each chakra as you go. Imagine the spine as a stalk or reed and draw your awareness up through the reed. Once you reach to the crown of your head, imagine there at the top of that stalk of energy a luminous white lotus flower. One by one begin to open each petal of the thousand-petaled lotus. Imagine as you open the lotus that your innermost self is merging more and more with the universe. Let this happen in the most natural and beautiful manner. Spend as much time in this visualization meditation as you like.

YOGA:

Tree Pose  Start with Mountain pose, keep the feet hip width apart. Extend your spine tall and fix your gaze forward at a focal point. Breathe in and lift the right leg and place the sole of your right foot on the left leg, inner thigh. The heel of the right leg should touch the perineum otherwise, can rest on the thigh, or even on the calf initially. Lifting the torso upwards, take a deep breath & raise the arms up, joining the hands in Namaste mudra. If you can, take your gaze upwards towards the ceiling. Stay here for 5 to 7 breaths and repeat on the other side. Why to: A restorative and a balancing pose, the position of the arms and gaze taps into the energies of the crown chakra. The position of the body, works from root to the tip of the head, by aligning the chakras in a string. Also, rejuvenating the mind, it strengths the whole body.

Savasana or Corpse Pose How to: Lying on your back, lift your pelvis and slide your tailbone away to comfortably spread your lower back. Keep just a light, natural arch to your lower back. Rest your pelvis on the ground. Place both the feet and the arms 3 to 4 feet apart with palms facing the ceiling. For extended support one can place a yoga blanket, cushion or pillow underneath the calves to relax the lower back. Now, close your eyes and take a slow deep breath. As you exhale, let your body relax and sink into the floor. Maintain stillness as you relax and quiet the mind. Completely loosen the whole body, like your body is sinking in the floor. Stay here for as long as you like. Why to: This pose gets its name from the posture of a dead body. It requires the stillness of a corpse, which makes it a challenging one. It helps in the repair of tissues and cells and in releasing stress. Savasana helps to calm and balance the crown chakra.

Third Eye FRIDAY

 

We are energy transformers; we are alive and developing in proportion to how much of this universal energy we accept and how freely it flows through us. The  cleaner our energy vortexes (Chakras) the better we transmit this energy or allow it to flow through us and the more alive and contented and effective we become.

The SIXTH chakra is the BROW, also known as the Third Eye and is located between our brows. Our psychic abilities and imagination are associated with the chakra. Being in the flow of life is a main function of this chakra.

Symptoms of imbalances caused by negativity include headaches, blurred vision, sinus issues, moodiness, volatility, and an inability to look at ones own fears, or to learn from others. 

      When this chakra is balanced we feel clear, focused, and can determine between truth and illusion. We are open to receiving wisdom and insight.

SOUNDS:  Choose some Meditation Music for Brow Chakra Healing.  One I found was:heal Thyself-Third Eye Chakrad Healing Music [AJNA]-Clarinet Edition by Meditative Mind-Meditative Music

CRYSTALS:  Blue Kynite crystals  relate to the Third-Eye chakra. These can be placed on the body, kept close by or worn as jewelry to help activate, heal and balance the chakra. Crystals are highly sensitive to absorbing energy and feelings, and are therefore excellent in assisting the energy flow of the chakras. The crystals for each chakra are usually chosen for their colour and their metaphysical properties. Indigo Kyanite exudes energies that particularly stimulate the pineal gland and may activate dormant psychic abilities.   Although this stone is a high vibration crystal, it is more gentle in its vibration. You may choose to use any color of Kyanite first, before you use the specific chakra stones. Using Kyanite will bring all of the chakras into alignment.   This will assist in the general flow of energy throughout the body. It will also bridge any energy gaps which may have been caused by any form of accident or from surgery you may have had.  Repeat an intention such as “My mind is clear and agile.” and “I am open to the wisdom within me.”

AROMAS:   Frankincense EO is known to ease depression and mental anxiety. It has a warming, soothing effect on the mind so empower it with your intentions. It releases tensions and nervousness and allows for a deeper more calming breath to enter the lungs. This oil also has a psychoactive chemical called trahydrocannabinole which is known to expand consciousness, hence is widely used in meditation. 

          Frankincense resonates the 6th chakra which awakens higher consciousness and brings in the power of inner vision and intuition. It aligns the solar plexus chakra with the third eye to bring illumination and understanding of intellectual matters to a more enlightened awareness. It also allows for connection to the godhead, bringing in a higher frequency of integration throughout the chakra system.

MEDITATION:        Seeing clearly is usually difficult only because of fears and traumas that get in the way. And until you know what you’re afraid to see, the blockages remain. In every case, each and every one of us is intuitive by nature, even if we don’t believe it. It is only subconscious programs and negative energy that block our ability to connect with our intuition. The more we clear out of the Third Eye Chakra energy space and practice using our intuition, the more clearly we see in every way. It’s truly a gift to be able to call upon our own guidance through this life, as we can see the way to navigate through the waters of this sea that we call life on Earth. We don’t have to continue on blindfolded and limited by our five senses. There is so much more available to us if we will only “see” it.

intellect, intuition, wisdom, and spiritual insight are available to everyone — but few of us even begin to tap our profound potential. Clearing and balancing your sixth chakra can help you tap into these vast capacities.

———
Put your hands before the lower part of your breast. The middle fingers are straight and touch at the tops, pointing forward. The other fingers are bended and touch at the upper two phalanges. The thumbs point towards you and touch at the tops.
Concentrate on the Third Eye chakra slightly above the point between the eyebrows.
Chant the sound OM or AUM.

YOGA:

The life lesson for the sixth chakra is developing the ability to trust your intuition. You replace ignorance of oneself with surrender to divine guidance. You understand that you are one drop in the ocean; you are part of the whole. Your intuition is guided by your spiritual eye—the third eye, located between the eyebrows.

Pose
While in Child’s Pose, feel your third eye touching the floor and breathe into it, feeling centered and clear. Be brave. Connect with and listen to your intuition while in the pose.

Affirmation

I am connected to my intuition.

Thunderbolt Pose, VajrasanA-thunderbolt pose for third eye chakra balancing; imageThis super vacuum cleaner weapon is used to get rid of our most powerful enemy – the one within – our inner critic and our judgments that make us feel not good enough.

The power of this pose is observation. It is by observing thoughts and not engaging with them further that we can be released from the grip of these thoughts.
We know from quantum physics that observation impacts that which is being observed. When we simply observe in this pose, we are becoming whole again.

Sit on your heels with your spine straight and your knees about hip with apart. Rest your palms on your thighs. You can place a towel underneath your buttocks if your knees feel uncomfortable.
With your spine straight release all your weight down through your sit bones.
Breathe in and out through your nose.
Allow your spine to lengthen upwards and your shoulders release and widen.
Allow your gaze to gently rest on the floor about 4 feet in front of you.
Continue breathing and observe your thoughts. Watch them like clouds on a sunny day passing you by. Do not become engaged with the thoughts, just allow them to pass by.
With this pose, you are cultivating “witness” consciousness or being the “detached observer”. You do not engage with your thoughts, you simply allow them to pass by as if you were watching clouds drift away on a sunny day.
The effects of cultivating this ability to observe your thoughts and not be engaged in the story, are amazing. You will find having more compassion for yourself, you will begin to see patterns of behavior that do not serve you and you will be able to gradually change these patterns. You will experience greater unity with others and the world around you. You will experience greater peace, inner knowing, and joy.

 

See YA LATER:  OSHO, Chapter 4: The Transformative Power of Idols:…tells of the ’tilak’, and that the science of yoga has found the third-eye, which is between the two eyebrows, to have great power stored in it-it is a great transmitter.  If you ask someone to do something, and you feel they may refuse, you can  conduct a small experiment.  If you concentrate your energy on the center between your two eyes and tell them what you want them to do, nine times out of ten they will do it.  But if you ask them without concentrating your energy that way, nine times out of ten they will not.  Any idea or thought conveyed with the energy concentrated between the two eyes moves rapidly, and carries with it great power.”

Sounds like fun experiment for today.

Throat Chakra Clearing

Thursday correlates with our Throat Chakra.  It is cleaning for Chakras this week in celebration of SPRING so we could clear our THROATS.   When our Throat Chakra, associated with Self Expression and Communication is cleared and  balanced, we are able to listen and communicate well. When we are having trouble expressing ourselves, or having trouble with communication (being unable to say what we want to say to others and/or not truly listening to what we are being told) the throat chakra is clogged and imbalanced.

An imbalance will first resonate as a tingle, ache or sensitivity in the throat region. (Stemming from the base of the neck to the ears)

Clearing the throat chakra involves learning to let go and trusting your inner voice. Not a small task for a lot of us!  As with the other Chakras we have to start by sweeping out the muddy negative emotions that have been tracked in by who knows what all?!   Those dusty particles of guilt, hurt and resentment foul up the smooth blue whirling vortex of energy that vibrates our throat, neck, thyroid gland, jaw, mouth and tongue that connect to our heart, thymus gland, vocal chords and mind.  

Dusting away, then shaking out negative emotions,  can work wonders to restore energy balance in the throat chakra. Sometimes a good cry can also help alleviate a blockage of the fifth chakra.

Practicing mindful speech, action, and deeds can help you maintain throat chakra balance. For example, talk openly and honestly with others on a regular basis.

Meditating on and incorporating the throat chakra’s color, blue, into your life can also calm emotional upheaval. For instance, introduce blue-colored flowers or decor to your home environment.

Blue Poppy

“…I feel very strongly there is an intelligence at work in every flower, in every blade of grass, in every cell of my body.” ~ Eckart Tolle       With their simple presence, flowers have a mystical way of raising our spirits as well as the vibrational energy of any room.

Blue flowers have not only the  color but also the  essence that vibrationally corresponds with our throat chakra. Meditating upon a particular flower, therefore, can help us open and align our Throat Chakra. Place the flowers in a pot or vase where you can see them often. You can also use a photo or painting of that flower. As you gaze upon the flower, ponder the qualities you’d like to develop. 

The throat chakra carries the energies of verbal expression and speaking our highest truth. Vibrating in a light blue, it is  represented by hyacinths, Texas Bluebonnets (Lupines), Delphiniums (Larkspur) and morning glories. If you are feeling a block in communication with a partner or feel that you are not being heard, bring one of these beautiful blue flowers into your home and meditate on the value of expressing your highest truth.    ~Traci Pedersen

CRYSTALS:    Lapis Lazuli can remind us of the power of the spoken word and is reportedly one of the best stones to use when opening and balancing the Throat Chakra as it helps to foster full verbal expression, and clears problems caused by “swallowing your tongue” or ‘frogs’. Lapis encourages clear, truthful expression when sharing information with others, including an easier voicing/communication of anger. Be sure to give the crystals your intention to clear your throat chakra

AFFIRMATION: ” I am clearing my throat chakra to communicate clearly and compassionately.”

AROMAS:  Thyme, Roman Chamomile and or Clary Sage. I mixed these three in blue votive candles for Thursdays.

MEDITATION:   To begin meditation Open the Throat Chakra by  crossing your fingers on the inside of your hands, without the thumbs. Let the thumbs touch at the tops, and pull them slightly up.   Concentrate on the Throat chakra at the base of the throat.

Chant the sound HAM.

YOGA:   Fish Pose (Matsyasana)             The lesson of the fifth chakra involves developing the ability to clearly communicate with yourself and others. Often we  don’t say what we mean or mean what we say because we’re distracted by unnecessary layers that don’t allow us to embrace our authentic Selves–think of it as your ego tromping mud around your clubhouse.

Fish Pose deals with opening the throat and spine in a way that can feel oddly vulnerable until you find your own expression. The same applies to communicating honestly with yourself and others. In the beginning it can be uncomfortable until you find your own genuine voice. Then, it is liberating.

Affirmation:  I communicate clearly and compassionately.

HEART Wednesday: Think Spring Green Clean

The HEART Chakra , resonating with Wednesdays, the Spring Equinox, element of Air, and LOVE is located in the center of the chest,  and it vibrates the heart, thymus gland and lungs at a frequency of 136.10 Hz.
Within our Heart Chakra, we can raise our consciousness through the power of love or lower our consciousness through fear.                                                                                                                                                                       The Heart Chakra presides over our relationships, our perception of love, and our ability to give and receive it, with others and with ourselves and with our Higher Self.                                                                        We are cleaned the energy doorways of our Base Chakra, our Sacral Chakra and our Solar Plexus Chakra and now we are at the middle Chakra.   Spring cleaning the Heart Chakra is about FORGIVENESS.      Forgiveness is wonderful for the person(s) you forgive, but even more so, it is for  you.   Forgiving means that you no longer allow the person or situation you have perceived as causing you pain to hold any power over you.  Perhaps you cannot forgive a specific person or event – but the part of yourself that you judged as weak and victimized is who needs your forgiveness.  Allow yourself to acknowledge and feel the pain without judging or resisting it.  Accept it and then integrate it.  It happened, and you learned something from it.  You’ll find that forgiveness of the person or situation will happen naturally when you can forgive yourself first.  Forgiveness is true freedom, and it opens up the Heart Chakra to feel the Love that you truly are.  

  “Forgiving isn’t about just being nice to the offender, it’s about being nice to yourself!

The moment you decide to forgive and let your negative feelings melt away, you are on the road to freedom

Forgiveness is all about taking care of you, not the personal you need to forgive.  It’s about putting your desire to feel good before your desire to be right.  It’s about taking responsibility for your own happiness and the balance of your heart chakra instead of pretending it’s in somebody else’s hands.  It’s about owning your power by giving all your anger, resentment, and hurt the heave-oh.”  (from ‘BadAssery’ by Jen Sincero)

When we are conscious (enlightened) the Heart chakra is clear and in balance;
We are feeling and showing unconditional love to self and others;    loving without any expectations for anything in return
Forgiving without even perceiving the transgression or error;         forgiving self, and all other living beings, events, circumstances and experiences                                                                                               detecting “heart’s desire” and follows heart in complete faith and joy       Having compassion for all life,                                                                   Being empathic, and seeing the Divine in other people.                     expressing and receiving abundant love.                                                           Being happy and fulfilled because we are fulfilling our Divine Purpose in service to humanity.                                                                                         Realizing that to love others is to love ourselves, because we are all one.

FRAGRANCE: Rose EO has the highest spiritual frequency of all essential oils. It opens the heart chakra, stimulates the thymus gland’s immune fighting properties and responds to intentions to give and feel unconditional love.

MEDITATION:  To Harmonize with the powerful emotion of love, allow your heart to connect to the beat of the hearts of those around you and guide you as  you join the tips of your thumb and index finger on both hands .  The other three fingers should be joined and stretched straight up together. Rest each hand on its corresponding knee. You can also hold either or both of your hands in this position over your heart. Repeat the chant ‘YAM’ (Yaaaaaaa-uummmmmmm) with love and compassion filling the air, your surroundings and all the world .

Now sit comfortably or lie down with your spine straight. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Take a deep inhalation, and on the exhale hug your arms around your body. Give yourself a squeeze. As you exhale, release your arms and feel yourself open, yet connected to the earth. Lift your chin slightly and position yourself as if your heart were to lead you in all things. As you continue to breathe, imagine that you are emptying yourself completely. You are letting everything flow out of you with your breath. In the space between the exhale and the inhale, there is a slow, steady rhythm. This rhythm stays with you and guides you as you move through each breath. Focus for a moment on the rhythm, which is the beating of your heart. Each pulse pumps life through your body. Feel the vitality increase as you focus on this steady, subtle, internal music. Hearing this sound fills you with an effortless grace. It reminds you of all that is beautiful, all that is lovely, all that is joyful. This rhythm is what allows you to harmonize with the world around you – connecting you in ways you haven’t even begun to imagine. In this state, imagine each pulse of your heart sending a course of love energy through your body. On your next inhalation, fill your entire body with love and let it course through you. With each beat of your heart, love grows and hums until its rhythm becomes a steady, resounding song that carries you throughout the rest of your day.

Repeat: “I listen to my heart and honor its connection to the hearts of others. I allow love to fill me up and guide me in all of my actions. I gracefully move to the rhythm of life.”

Continue to let this feeling flow and deepen with each breath. When you feel ready, open your eyes and move with love and motion through yoga practice and the rest of your day.
