MEDITATE to Reduce Stress

Did you know that stress fills the body with toxins? Stress can actually make us crave all the wrong things! But rather than going on a major detox, did you know that meditation is actually more effective, and much faster than going on a detox diet?

Meditation is the perfect stress reliever. Take a few minutes and try this simple meditation:

Sit or lay down.

Allow your body to feel slightly heavy.

Bring your attention to your belly button and see a little light flickering. Now take a deep breath in and as you do visualize the flame stretching and reaching up. Now breathe out slowly and completely. Visualize the flame becoming a ball of light expanding out from that original flame and transforming anything that is not in your highest and best good and releasing it fully.

Continue this for a couple of minutes.

Bring your hands to your belly – where the original flame flickers brightly as if it is now content, whole, complete. Take a breath in and now imagine as you breathe you are being held by the earth and visualize all people, thoughts, ideas, energy that are in alignment with your highest and best good are attracted to you.

Bring your awareness to your heart.

Put a smile on your face.

BREATHE.

Now notice how you feel. You can do that anytime you desire.

Peace and Blessings

May the CHI be with you 😉
