MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Tuesday, January 17, 2016
When your instincts are challenged by your reasoning powers or sense of logic, step back to get some perspective, rather than forcing anything. Be emotionally responsive and fair with others, while using your mind with integrity rather than ego.
I’m working toward emotional and intellectual equilibrium; I love the people who are important to me and am careful with their emotions.
HOW TO MEDITATE WITH THE MOON
You can do a very simple 8/4 count meditation, which means you settle into a comfortable position, close your eyes, focus on your breath, and breathe in to a slow count of 8, hold it for 4 counts, and then breathe out for a slow count of 8. Hold your breath again for 4 counts. On the in-breath recite a word or phrase from the Moon Meditation in your mind, focusing on that energy and holding it, and then consciously release that same energy out into the world on the out-breath. Then empty your mind space for 4 counts, and begin the process again on the in-breath with the next word or phrase from the Moon Meditation.
