MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Thursday, February 2, 2017
Within unpredictability and intensity there’s an assuring method we can use to ground ourselves and those around us – communication. Practice honest, heartfelt communication at every opportunity. Try to bring your thoughts to balance before speaking to avoid reactionary words. Trust your intuition as a guide.
I think first and speak second, even when the environment is uncertain. I communicate responsively and responsibly.
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 before breathing in again. 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 begin the process again on the in-breath, either using the same word/phrase you’re working with (until it feels comfortable and “right”) or move on to the next word or phrase from the Moon Meditation.
