JigSaw Meditation? 10 Simple Steps to Inner Peace

Letting Go Om Style by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Weight Loss Artist

This week’s JigSaw Puzzle is inspired by Our Lady of Om, who invites you to not only click through “Ommmmmm”, but also to join her in a simple breathing meditation.

Here, a simple Breathing Meditation from Our Lady of Om.

Are you ready to let go of stress?  Are you ready to calm your mind and develop inner peace?  Good!  Let’s breathe …

In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few. ~ Shunryu Suzuki

 

1. Quiet.  Our first step toward inner peace is to find a quiet place to meditate; a quiet and calm space to sit. It need not be a grand space, or a simple place; it need not be large space, nor does it need to be small.  It just needs to be a quiet space or place for you to sit.

2. Sit.  You can sit in the traditional cross-legged posture or in any other position that suits you.  You can sit in a chair, if you like.

3. Straight Back.  However and wherever you choose to sit, do keep your back straight, as it helps to prevent the mind from becoming sluggish and sleepy.

4. Eyes.  Sit with your eyes closed or partially closed.  If partially closed, allow your vision to soften.  Turn your attention to your breathing.

5. Breathe.  Naturally, preferably through the nostrils. 

6. Become Aware of the sensation as the breath enters and leaves your nostrils.

7. The Object of this meditation is this sensation. 

8. Resist.  Your mind will spin thoughts and tempt you to follow these thoughts.  Resist the temptation; shift your awareness back to your breath. 

9. Repeat as many times as necessary.  Keep bringing your awareness back to your breath.

10. Be Patient.  Gradually the thoughts will subside and you will begin to experience inner peace and relaxation.

Weight Loss Wisdom:  When calm, relaxed and focused on your breathing, you are ‘away’ from and letting go of that which causes you to eat and gain.

Spread the word … not the icing!
