  1. Read all the steps and notes below before starting this meditation.
  2. Get comfortable and completely relax remaining as still as you can. Notice your body breathing like you have never noticed before.
  3. Don’t be concerned if your mind is racing or thinking of this or that – let it – just choose to focus on your breathing for now
  4. Regardless of the activity in your mind, dedicate the next fifteen minutes to allowing yourself to experience whatever comes up for you whether it’s thoughts, feelings, visions or emotions.
  5. Set a timer for 15 minutes (choose a gentle alarm!) and start when you are comfortable and ready.

NOTES

  • Allow everything in this present moment, no matter how negative or uncomfortable – it’s all energy flowing through your body.
  • Now, without being concerned about any outcome, allow your whole focus to rest on your experience of being alive right now. Allow it all.
  • Stay with the experience as you chant in your mind the mantra ‘I am’ over and over again.
  • Let the mantra dissolve into a meaningless mumble – it doesn’t matter; what does is your undivided attention on your present moment experience. This is where your source dwells – the source of all knowledge and wisdom.
  • Do this every day of the week

NOTES

  • Allow everything in this present moment, no matter how negative or how positive. Nothing is wrong or ‘shouldn’t be’. There are no mistakes, there’s just what is!
  • Notice with curiosity any thoughts that may try to explain away your experience. It’s enough to simply notice these ‘explanations’ – especially any familiar or reoccurring ones.
  • Without any effort or striving, you may also notice sensations or ‘shifts’ – notice them, but don’t try to nudge or force anything.
  • Notice the eyes of compassion and grace, free from condemnation and judgement.
  • Do this every day of the week
