Meditation for Relaxation & Focus
Position yourself in a comfortable location. Close your eyes and clear your mind. Focus on the nothingness within your mind’s eye. It may be helpful for you to envision a favorite location of yours or a relaxing thought. If your mind wanders to thoughts, do not judge yourself or become frustrated. Merely slowly and gently bring your mind back to nothingness or your relaxing vision. Over time, you may find that it becomes less challenging to silence your mind. No matter what your experience, accept it and honor it. Even if thoughts keep “popping up,” you will benefit. Just remember not to judge your experience negatively and to accept it as it is. This meditation may be done by itself for any amount of time… I would suggest beginning with doing it for 5-10 minutes. You may also want to combine it with the chakra cleansing/balancing meditation and/or the envisioning the white light meditation. Do not be surprised if you become so relaxed that you feel like you have fallen asleep. Again, do not judge yourself. If you do doze, it will most likely feel different than when you sleep at night… in a few moments of this meditative “dozing,” you will find yourself refreshed and feeling as if you slept for considerably longer than you did.
