Nervous about beginning a Meditation Practice?

March 5, 2013

BreatheI have a high-strung friend who messaged me recently. He was looking for ways to relax and let go.

He, like a lot of people find the thought of MEDITATING intimidating, but actually, most people are doing mini meditations all the time.

Think about when you are angry, do you count to ten? – meditation.
Do you count sheep to take your mid off of things so you can sleep? – meditation
Maybe you take a walk or ride a bike, these things can also be meditative

There is no reason to be scared, meditation is for everyone. Anyone can do it.

I started him off with one of my favorite meditations:  Easy Self Guided Bareh Count Down Meditation.

I do this one constantly. It’s easy to remember and simple enough to do it anywhere, anytime.

Easy Self Guided Bareh Count Down Meditation

November 8, 2011

Bareh (बारह) is 12 in Hindi .

This is a great relaxation technique to do when ever you are stressed.  It’s perfect for unwinding after a long day.  It can help keep anger in check (think counting to ten).  It’s a perfect meditation to do when you can’t sleep (think counting sheep).

Come to a comfortable seated pose or corpse pose
Settle in, close your eyes and begin to take a few slow deep breaths.
When you are ready to begin…

  • Take a long slow deep breath in,
  • as you exhale, relax and release mentally say 12.
  • Inhale once again,
  • as you exhale, relax and release a little bit further,  mentally say 11.

Continue on in this way slowly counting backwards, relaxing and releasing with each breath out.

If you find that you reach zero and your mind or body are still racing, begin again at 12.
