28 Day Meditation Programme.
It’s time to go inside, assess what’s going on, what’s serving you and what’s not. With this Virgo moon there’s no better time to meditate and realise what to let go of. Going from summer to fall, learning what needs to be done. To improve your clarity, precision, balance, mental health and energy.
This free programme is designed to give you a foundation, then an improvement week by week with some great tips and testers along the way.
NOTES (before you start)
-No music needed, do nothing meditation requires as little to distract you.
-Download the app - insight timer, to time your sessions and the gong will go off so you don’t have to worry about checking time. Or just use any timer you like :)
-No need for floor sitting, you can sit on a chair or up against a wall if needed!
-Mornings are best, can be done in the evenings too.
Below, you can see the title of the meditation with a *. Read these to understand what you’ll be doing and progressing with.
*DO NOTHING MEDITATION
True meditation is doing nothing, if you are trying to do something you aren’t meditating. To meditate is the art of doing nothing. Let your thoughts come - and as easy as they come, let them go. If you find yourself thinking about something, don’t judge yourself, in that moment it isn’t real, let the thought go and return to empty mind. Repeat this process.
*WIM HOF STYLE
Breathe deeply, quickly in and out through your mouth. 30 deep breaths, then on the last breathe out - hold your breathe out. For as long as possible, until your body is telling you need to breathe, but fight that urge a bit, let your belly jolt a couple of times, trust you have enough oxygen in your lungs. You can hold it for longer than you think! Deep sea divers use this technique. Remain calm and tell yourself you can do it for a few more moments.
Breathing into your stomach in and out through your nose only. The belly should push out and in, not breathing vertically (shoulders and chest inflating), breathing horizontally - belly getting bigger and smaller only. To adjust to it, imagine a balloon in your belly expanding on the inhale and deflating on the exhale. During belly breathing focus on what may seem to be “shallow breathes”, smaller inhales and exhales. This breathe requires less effort, is highly effective for getting into a state of relaxation.
The foundation. Duration wise it is light, designed to give us a chance to sit, get used to the process and realise what thoughts are happening for a bit and build from just 5 minutes. ONLY 5!! That’s the challenge for the first week, can you sit and let your thoughts come and go without judgement or allowing yourself to think too much about them for 5 minutes. Letting go and returning to empty as much as possible.
