Overlook Halloween and the election. We have ridden the emotional waves of a pandemic, debates, and the should we/shouldn’t decisions to dress in costume this year. Now, we embark into the holiday season and must navigate through the uncertain energies of families, gatherings, gift-giving, and more memes.
Let’s face it. The holiday season is stressful for most people. Our routines are stretched as are many other aspects of our personal and work lives. How do we cut through the chaos to take a breath and be the good, grounded persons that we know we can be?
Articles will crop up with the 10 best tips for the holiday season, best practices to stay healthy, so on and so forth. All of which offer advice you may or may not resonate with. This article may indeed be added to the list of How To’s. Yet, I’d like to simplify this for you.
Have what I call a “church meeting” with yourself. After all, your body and mind are your temples. Acknowledge the stretch. Then take a deep soulful breath. The reality is that giving in to all of the pressures of the season will only create more stress if we do not give ourselves oxygen first. What does that mean to you?
Find time? …to meditate?
Yes. This can be done. If you don’t have a meditation routine in place, make one. Find a quiet space that you can claim as a haven and take that deep breath. Tap your heart center. Tap your crown. Let go for one minute. You might be surprised that this one minute can turn into two or three or more. There are 1440 minutes in a day. Gift yourself with at least one. Make sure you place yourself in the attitude of gratitude for that one or more minutes.
Those of you who have read my articles, have read my recommendations for the Meditation on Twin Hearts. This is a powerful meditation passed to the world by Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui, the founder of Pranic Healing®. It activates the heart chakra (human chakra) and the divine heart (crown). The downpouring of Divine energy in this meditation has healing, restorative, and inspirational benefits. After receiving the blessings in this meditation, we give back by sharing the abundance of light received through our hearts, crowns, and hands with our planet, family, friends, and communities. This meditation has many forms that can last from twenty minutes to an hour. You can catch streams at pranichealing.com. Those that have carved out a daily routine with Meditation on Twin Hearts have experienced profound and positive differences in their lives.
Still facing no time in your day?
Start with your one-minute, especially as we navigate through the holidays and this life-altering pandemic. Eventually, this minute will expand into time well spent in meditation and you’ll find your day(s) to be a smoother ride.
I’ve shared many testimonials in my articles over time. All are inspiring. We find our own paths, what resonates with us, and what benefits we’ve encountered. Here is my testimonial:
“I teach meditation, it’s laws, it’s benefits, and the overall value of the practice. But teaching is not the same as practicing and experiencing the expanded consciousness that opens your awareness and receptivity to blessings. On the days when I do not take the time to be still, my anxiety rises. My energy diminishes. So, I take my meditative minute and it immediately refreshes me. However, when I stay in tune with my higher self through Meditation on Twin Hearts, I am restored, clear-minded, and able to tackle my day with loving kindness, focus, and gratitude. I can also see, over time, how sharing the Light that comes through this meditation has helped family members and friends and has drawn harmony into conversations, projects, and groups.”
Find your meditative minute and expand into your Twin Hearts. You’ll discover its benefits.
