Wishing you all a beautiful 2012, this year my Solution is focused on love, compassion and calm abiding in the heart, so this ripple can travel to all that connects. A weekly meditation with this intent will be held at my home, on monday evenings, 7pm GMT, more information how to participate will follow on this page soon. You can also allow yourself to find a space, preferably daily, where you can connect with that place within where all is calm, this might help with how you connect with your emotions, with your relationship to others and how you live your life. Find yourself a safe space, switch off the phone and sit straight, or ly down. Make sure you are comfortable. Then bring your awareness to your breath and just observe the breath coming and going, like a gentle wave in the ocean. Don’t judge it, just follow it and observe the quality of your breath, is it a shallow breath or do you open the lungs. You can also just count the breath, how many seconds does your inner and outer breath last. Then just observe the body becoming less tense, softening. Start with five minutes a day, or every second day, or even once a week. Observe how you feel the rest of the day after each meditation. If you feel it helps, do more of it. If you don’t like it, try something else that works for you. Be gentle and kind to yourself. Best wishes, Claudia.
