7-Minute Mindfulness Meditation

We can take this meditation in steps, working up to what I call open mindfulness. This is a beautiful practice because for many of us, mindfulness is not something that's extremely easy to jump into.

That's why getting into it step by step is so beneficial. 

First we come into by going into the breath. I find that bringing the awareness to the breath is easiest because it is the simplest thing to grasp. It is more tangible.

From there, we open up one inward eye to the mind, as it will certainly panic and want to take back your attention. This is when we shine a light onto the thoughts by keeping a percentage of attention on the mind so it does not pull us away from the the mindfulness at hand.

This is being mindFUL. Filling up the mind with the light of your awareness. 

Then we can bring attention to an easy point of contact in the body, wherever that may be for you. The breath has prepped us to go into the body and give attention there. 

Finally, we get to step back and look and feel it all. Like watching a movie. Inner vision on. Inner listening on. Inner sensations and breath felt. Sometimes joy is felt by stepping back into the observant place of spirit. This is open mindfulness.

Watch for any sneaky judgment or thinking. Try to stay completely awake.

You've probably heard about how great meditation is for you. You've probably said to yourself: I need to start meditating. Or maybe you had a practice, and life has gotten in the way.

 

There is no one that meditation can't help. There is no way it can't transform your life, if you make a habit out of it. We're talking better career & creativity, better relationships & connections, better mindset & disposition, better health & sleep. It touches everything.

 

So here's what to expect:

 

  • Every day for 21 days, you will get an email with a downloadable PDF worksheet for the day and a link to the meditation audio. On the first day, you will also receive your 21-Day Meditation Transformation calendar.

 

  • The first week focuses on Breath and Body, and all of the meditations will be 5 minutes. We will ease into the practice during this first week. Simple practices in a shorter amount of time as we work through any resistance and perceived time constraints.

 

  • The second week's meditations will be 10 minutes long and will focus on Mind & Mantra. Habit is forming, getting stronger.

 

  • We finally work our way into 15-minute meditations that incorporate Gratitude, Love & Visualization. These meditations are powerful. I challenge you to make it to this week.
