Easter Week Meditation


Events in the week leading up to Easter cover a range of emotions - the solemn celebration of the Last Supper; the sadness of the Crucifixion; the joy of the Resurrection.

These events reflect much of what we go through in life - ups and downs; joys and sorrows.

With the events leading up to Easter in mind, here is a meditation for reflection.

Sit with a straight back on a cushion or chair. Fold your hands in your lap or place them palms up or palms down on your thighs. If you wish to use your mala, the photo shows how to hold it. Close your eyes.

Begin to practice even regular breathing, such as 2 counts to breathe in; 2 counts to breathe out. Do not use breath retention. Keep up the pattern of even breathing throughout the meditation without actually counting.

Breath ties the body and mind together. We need to breathe to live, and maintaining an even rhythm of breathing can calm the mind when it is agitated, and refreshes the body at the same time.

Now, think on the events leading up to Easter. How can they be applied in your own life? What does the Resurrection mean to you? Do you have habits that you can let go and resurrect into better or healthier habits? Could your actions be kinder, gentler, or more giving?

Take time after your quiet reflection to write your ideas in your journal for occasional review.

Before opening your eyes and stretching out, finish your meditation with thoughts of appreciation for the good in your life.

I invite you to join me in a daily group cyber meditation for personal and planetary peace. Click the article here to read about it.
