Hey, guys. It’s Bex here. Welcome here to
another “You have Four Minutes for Meditation” video. Today’s video is by request and it
is a meditation for healing. I am the absolute worst when it comes to being
sick. If I even have the slightest indication of a sniffle, I’m on the coach with my sick
blanket watching reality TV all day long, acting like a complete princess.
But that’s not the reality every single day. Sometimes I have to get up and work anyway.
So I use a little healing mantra or meditation to help me get ready for my day and to convince
myself that I’m actually quite well. There is so much science behind the concept of mind
over matter. When it’s just a little sniffle, or you might
have worked too hard at the gym, I have something for you that’s going to help you get into
tip-top shape. Let’s begin. Go ahead and find your easy seat.
You can have your legs placed one in front of the other or crossed in half-lotus or full
lotus — whatever is comfortable for you. Place your hands downturned on your thighs
or upturned to receive the energy around you. I suggest upturned for this meditation because
we want to uplift and heal ourselves with good energy.
Close your eyes and inhale your shoulders up to your ears…exhale your shoulder blades
down your spine. It should have you sitting up nice and tall, forming a straight line
from your seat all the way to the tippy top of your head so that energy may flow freely.
Prana in Sanskrit means life, and it is said that life enters our body through our breath.
So let’s first pay attention to this life energy, this force of good, by just focusing
on our easy inhales and exhales. As we become more focused on our breath, I
want you to imagine that each inhale is carrying with it a beautiful, glowing beam of light
that is carrying all of the healing energy of the universe within it.
Maybe this beaming light is just shining steady and true. Maybe it sparkles like glitter.
Maybe it dances joyfully. Whatever it looks like, it brings a warming, joyful, healing
energy into our bodies. Maybe you feel a sniffle or an itchy throat
or a cough coming on. Maybe you’re a little sore from a gym appointment or a yoga class.
As you inhale that healing energy — that beam of light — hold at the top of your breath,
and imagine that you’re sending that energy straight to the part of your body that needs
it most, that needs healing. Exhale the pain, the ache, the illness away.
Maybe it takes a couple breaths to truly visualize this light, but as you hold it in at the top
of your breath, focus on sending all of that energy to the place that needs it. Allow it
to do its healing work, to do its magic. Exhale. You may continue to take these deep inhales
and exhales, or with your next inhale, go ahead and open your eyes with me.
Now, if all that meditation did was distract you from worrying about your impending illness
or your pain for just a little bit, that’s fine. Then it’s done its job. But hopefully
you feel some healing energy inside of you right now.
Another mantra that I love to use is, “I am completely well. I am strong.” I say that
with my inhale and then hold it in, feel that healing, and then exhale out all that bad
energy that comes along with being sick or injured.
