Hey, guys. It’s Bex here. Welcome to 2014
and my brand-new videos for my series “You Have Four Minutes for Meditation.” Today we’re
doing a New Year’s meditation, but if you happen to be watching this on a day that is
not New Year’s Day, that’s okay because every day is yours to start brand new.
First I want to give you a few instructions on how to set up for meditation. I want you
to find a quiet spot. It doesn’t have to be a silent spot. Just get somewhere peaceful
and quiet where you won’t be distracted or interrupted.
Then find a comfortable place to sit. This can be on your couch, on a chair, or on the
floor on a pillow like me. Find your easy seat. This can be with one foot in front of
the other, one foot in half lotus, or in full lotus — whatever is comfortable for you.
Meditation is supposed to be easy, so I don’t want you to struggle with your physical posture.
Now that you’ve found your comfortable seat, I want you to begin by closing your eyes.
This will allow you to remove the distractions out of your line of sight. Then gently place
your hands downturned on your knees or upturned to receive the energy around you.
I want you sitting nice and tall, so with your next inhale, go ahead and breathe your
shoulders up to your ears…exhale your shoulder blades down your spine. Hummmm…
One more time. Inhale up to your ears…exhale down your spine. This will place your shoulder
over your hips. Your chin should be parallel to the floor. And we are ready to meditate.
New Year’s is a time for renewal, a time for rebirth. Let us first imagine a white light
that will bathe all of the events, struggles, heartaches, and even victories away. Imagine
that white light entering the top of your head and filling your entire body with goodness
as it passes through your face. It fills your head, your torso, past your heart, your belly,
your hips, down past your legs and into the floor.
This beautiful white light is filling you with peace and calm, cleansing you of any
worry, regret, frustration, disappointmentl and again, even happiness and victory attached
to memories of the previous year. Today is our day to start brand new.
Continue to pay attention to your breath. You may hear noise coming in from your environment.
That’s okay. Allow them to float into your mind, and then gently push them out like you
were batting away a floating balloon. Use the same method to deal with thoughts
that may arise. They float in, and then you bat them away.
At this point, I’d love to give you a New Year’s mantra, an offering, a gift from me
to you that I want you to repeat, either out loud or in your head, as you inhale and exhale:
“Whatever I’ve done, wherever I’ve been, today is my day to start brand new…”
“Whatever I’ve done, wherever I’ve been, today is my day to start brand new..”
“Whatever I’ve done, wherever I’ve been, whatever has been done to me, today is my day to start
brand new…” Continue to repeat that mantra, aloud or silently.
Allow it to fill your heart. Allow your breath to follow the words.
You can stay here in meditation, or with your next inhale, you may open your eyes…
