The best tool we have is our ability to be still. Most people have difficulty making space in their day to quiet the mind and breathe. We all have the potential for chaos or clarity;
it's simply a matter of choice and priority.
So here are a couple of questions for you:
- Do you have a few minutes in your day that could be cleared?
- Is your health and well-being a priority?
The answer is a resounding yes even if you won't allow yourself to think it.
A narrative told by the artist and motivational speaker, Sandra Sabene.
My unfolding story is my art...
I am an artist. My art is my way of creating my best version of myself. There are piles of canvases and papers and various surfaces lining the walls and floors of my studio. The sizes and colors range from small subtle sensations to muddy or muted mixtures to large awakening swirls of emotional spectrum. Each and every one has a purpose, an expression of that moment. Whether it was a fleeting release, a profound healing or just a thought, it was something that began as an idea and moved through me in some way leaving an impression on my soul....
Here are a few links to guided meditations that I have found helpful and I have shared over the years with my students, clients, friends and family: (enjoy<3)
4 minute Guided breathing
A simple reset is to focus on the breath. If you have difficulty doing this, enjoy this guided meditation for mindful breathing.
You'll be gently guided to breathe in to the count of 4, hold for 2 counts, out for 4 counts and hold for 2 counts and so on.
This can bring instant relief and clarity.
Release stress and relax
A Meditation for Calm and Peace. This calming male voice brings a sense of peace and trust. Focus on the breath and relax. Let go of expectation and when you have difficulty, simply focus on the breath again. No matter how many times you repeat this, there is tremendous benefit in continuing on until you feel a shift within you.
A mantra Song/Meditation
Ho'opono Pono is a Hawaiian prayer for reconciliation and forgiveness. The words repeat the mantra: I'm sorry, please forgive me, and thank you, I love you. The repeating of the mantra clears old beliefs that no longer serve our highest good and realign us with positive thought to create a life with more love, joy and hope.
