A Power Meditation
Power meditation is a brief interlude - seconds to a minute - to regroup your energy and go forward recharged. It is like pausing at a fork in the road then making the choice to choose the path for the better.
Power meditation, though quickly done, restores harmony to the moment.
Power meditation is like coming upon a clearing in the woods that is bathed in sunlight, erasing a negative train of thought, exposing just the insight needed to solve the problem of the moment.
Power meditation is especially useful during a busy day away from home - no one need know you are doing it.
Here's how to do a power meditation -
If appropriate for your location close your eyes. Inhale deeply and exhale slowly. Then begin regular rhythmic breathing such as one count to inhale, and one count to exhale. Continue for up to a minute or more while observing your breathing pattern.
What this does is completely change the energy of the moment, harmonizing body, mind and emotion. That is what makes it a power meditation. A little bit of effort produces a great deal of harmony.
Go forward from this power meditation using ideas that come to mind while recharged. Later when you have privacy, sit for a longer meditation and slip into a reflective state to analyze bigger issues. Then sit quietly and think of an appreciation for any insight that has come to mind. Take time to send loving and caring thoughts to family, community and the whole world and beyond.
We are part of a universal family. Our personal efforts toward peace and harmony stretch out from us to everyone and everything.
Power meditation -
Moments rebalancing our energy
Body, mind, emotion
Synchronized once again
Doorways opening within
Solutions flooding our path
In the light of harmony.
