Most of us welcomed in this new year a bit quieter than normal, yet with a bit of ‘thank God that is over’ with a lot …let’s have a way better year this year attitude. Last year my daytimer was this lovely meditation themed…2021 is an entirely different mindset lol…although it is always positive and […]
I love to start my day with a walking meditation. Today with all the flowers blooming, it was a glorious assault to my senses as I consciously walked by rose bushes, trees and wildflowers awake and alive to the sound of life.
Before you go out for a walk, set your intention to walk about mindfully. Ask to become aware of the subtle energies of the plants and animals, of the trees and even the people you encounter while out to play. Then, as you walk around, notice the thoughts, feelings, and the smells that are happening all around you. Top by next to a tree and feel it’s energy. Quiet your mind and your thoughts and just feel. It just might surprise you what that tree has say. Feel the earth beneath your feet. If you can, take off your shoes and walk upon the good earth and just feel her.
To do a walking meditation, begin by setting your intention – saying a prayer – stating that you want to consciously connect to the plants, animals, and the earth as walk upon her. Quiet your heart, your mind, and your breath. Feel yourself connect with mother earth. Open your eyes and notice all of the thoughts, feelings, and sensations that arise. Do not judge them, just let flow and be what they are.
When you return from your walking meditation, journal about those thought and feelings. It just might amaze you as new awareness and understanding emerges.
Your Angel Guidance is to take a walking meditation through your neighbourhood!
Lucky me! I have two beautiful little dogs that I take for walks everyday. That means that I go outside for a walk, regardless of the weather. I love to be out early in the morning when most of the world is still asleep. This time of the day is magical and it makes it easier to connect with the world around you. Get up early and go for a conscious walk tomorrow morning and see what a difference it makes in your day!
