Start the Day Meditation

Updated: Dec 14, 2023

Let's start the day in a positive frame of mind

I invite you to settle, breathe, be....

Engage the breath, relaxing the body and when you are ready count the for 3, out for 4. Repeat.

If the mind wanders (and it will!) return to concentrating on the breath, gently in and out.

Next imagine breathing in through the back of the heart and out through the front of the heart, exploring the use of affirmations to keep yourself focussed and change any negative thoughts

(In = I am peaceful, Out = I am relaxed)

I am sharing a poem below which I find peaceful and encourage you to just take 5 minutes to breathe and relax whenever you can

For a New Beginning by John O’Donohue

In out-of-the-way places of the heart, Where your thoughts never think to wander, This beginning has been quietly forming, Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire, Feeling the emptiness growing inside you, Noticing how you willed yourself on, Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety And the gray promises that sameness whispered, Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent, Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled, And out you stepped onto new ground, Your eyes young again with energy and dream, A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not yet clear You can trust the promise of this opening; Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure; Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk; Soon you will be home in a new rhythm, For your soul senses the world that awaits you.
