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.

Mandala Coloring Meditation 2

September 26, 2011

Mandala is Sanskrit, loosely translated to mean circle.

Circles are a powerful symbol found in every culture. We see them in halos, prayer wheels, and other religious symbols, architecture, and nature. Mandalas are sacred circles that have been long been used to facilitate meditation in the Indian and Tibetan religions. People create and look at mandalas essentially to center the body and mind.

1. Take a long look at the Mandala, feel it’s good effect.
2. Begin from the middle to release hidden energy.
3. Color from the outside to the centre.
4. Keep the direction you have begun.

 

People who color mandalas often experience a deep sense of calm and well-being. It can be soothing and nourishing. Mandalas  focus your attention and help find your center

Mandala Coloring Meditation 1

February 23, 2011

Mandala is Sanskrit, loosely translated to mean circle. It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself–a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds.

Coloring a mandala is a combination of active meditation and color therapy.  It’s a blend of spiritual insight and mental healing that has been used for thousands of years.

1. Use crayons, pencils, chalk, pastels, paint, or markers in a variety of colors.

2. Find a quiet and comfortable place.

3. Start coloring.

4. Don’t think about your choice of color too much and don’t worry about matching colors. Let your instincts guide you. After you’ve begun with the first color, the rest will follow.

The Circle represents the wheel of life.  The circle is whole, it represents everything & nothing.  There is no beginning and no end.  It represents NOW.  It is  Universal Consciousness, creation & unity.
