Easy Guided Sitting Meditation


Being a boomer, I am in the age group where I'm exploring meditations for health and relaxation more than ever.

This meditation can be done effectively sitting in an easy chair or recliner. And at bedtime what better way to drift off to sleep than from the peaceful feelings brought on by a few minutes of positive thoughts. Now, here we go.

Preparation: Sitting up, laying back in a recliner, or laying on the bed on your back, close your eyes. Clasp your hands in your lap, or rest them at your sides. If sitting, let your feet rest on the floor, or the footrest of the recliner.

Begin to breathe in and out evenly and moderately up to 50 counts or another even number.

Example:
Count 1 breathe in
Count 2 breathe out
Count 3 breathe in
Continue ...

Now that your breathing is regular leave the counting behind and think of a positive thought, or alternately, picture a sun rising, watching it emerge over the horizon warming your body and lighting and lightening your inner vision. Mentally enjoy basking in the sun's warmth for as long as you like.

Finish your meditation by taking a nap or going to sleep for the night, or if you wish to arise, take a final deep breath in, slowly let it out, open your eyes, stand up and stretch.

Relaxation, meditation
