You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg for a meditation retreat.
In fact, you don’t even have to search for a guru, hike in the mountains, or drive to the beach.
Here’s how to experience a do-it-yourself meditation retreat in the privacy of your own home or office.
First, find a comfortable place. This will be a quiet place where dogs and family won’t be bounching in and out. It’ll also be a place where you feel safe and relaxed.
Next, turn your attention to your breath. Take a deep breath. Hold. Release slowly. Repeat several times. With each exhalation, relax and let go.
Now that you’re relaxing, direct your mental attention to your legs.
As you continue to breathe, hold, release, and relax, visualize your legs digging down into the earth just like powerful roots of an ancient oak tree.
Imagine your legs extending slowly, growing down to the very center of the earth.
When you feel your legs secure in the center of the earth, gently whisper to yourself…
I am grounded to the earth… feeling vital and strong.
Now, and this is the cool part, feel the healing earth energy flow up through your legs and up into your entire body.
This energy flows in gentle, warm waves, and it fills every part of your being with inner peace, warmth, and vitality.
Breathe deeply into this healing place.
Feel peace and stillness flowing through your chest and heart.
Breathe, hold, release slowly, and let go… and know you can return to this spiritual retreat whenever you wish.
