Today’s meditation is about tapping into your energy in an elevated way, specifically the solar yang energy that is available to us, especially in the summer.
Right now, the light, the sun is at its peak. We just crossed over into the summer months and it is important to recognize that what’s going on in the collective, what’s going on in nature, is also something that we can tap into to elevate the energy inside of our bodies.
This is related to theory, which is that the five elements in nature: Air, space, earth, fire and water are the same elements that are in our own bodies. And so when we learn to tap into the energy, when we learn to ride the wave of energy that’s all around us, we can benefit enormously.
In this meditation, we are going to be consciously tuning into that outward, that external, that beautiful open energy, the solar yang energy, and this is the energy that we can use. We can harness it. We build it and we can harness it and direct it towards our creative endeavors, towards our health and our own healing, towards our relationships, whatever we desire. We want to cultivate that energy and bring it forward and then be able to work with it in a deeper way.
I’m so excited about this meditation today, and I can’t wait to hear how you do with it. Sending you so much love.
And now, let’s begin our meditation…
Go ahead and take a comfortable seat, either sitting on the ground with your legs crossed and your hips elevated on a meditation cushion, or if you prefer, sitting in a chair with your feet, nice and flat on the ground. Either way, just take a moment to adjust your spine, making sure that both shoulders are more or less evenly balanced and that your chin is parallel to the ground.
Shoulders should be over your hips. So there’s a nice lift to the spine, but the spine and the back and your whole body still feels nice and relaxed.
Take a few deep breaths settling into your seat now.
Starting to go inward, starting to close your eyes, just listen to my voice, reminding yourself that there’s nowhere else to go.
There’s nothing else to do, but just to be here now and to breathe.
Now on your next inhale, you’re going to start to lift both of your arms in front of you like you’re extending for someone’s hands, and continue up over your head.
As you exhale, you’re going to bring your hands down to your sides.
We’re sort of making this pattern of up and forward as we inhale and then letting your hands come down like a big circle, the big sun, big expansive solar energy.
And again, inhale, lifting your arms in front of you and up overhead, and then exhaling and letting them flare out like the radiant sun, and then come down to your side.
And again, inhaling and lifting all the way up and then exhaling and letting them come down. You can take this a few more rounds. You can go a little bit faster.
Sometimes I like to bring my hands down a little bit faster, or you can go really steady and really slow. It really depends on your energy right now and just what feels good in your body. When we open our arms out to the sides, I want you to feel this expansion of your energy, starting from you, and then moving out, the energy field expands in all directions.
One more round, wherever you are extending up and out, and then arms to the side, palms open, really feeling that energy pulsing through you and then outward and radiating beyond your physical delineation, I.E. your skin, and really just feeling that energy expand beyond.
Now coming to stillness, letting your hands rest on your knees or your thighs, palms facing up, feeling open and receptive.
Starting to take some really nice, full breaths, nice and deep, in and out through your nose. And notice that you can really pull in the energy, you can bring it in and expand the belly.
And as you’re doing that, you never have to tense your shoulders at all. There’s this beautiful opening and expansion that happens without rigidity, without any tension needed at all.
This is the time of year now to really tap into this expansive, beautiful solar yang energy that is available to us with the expansion of the sun and the sunlight. It is our opportunity to tap into that energy and to feel this potentiality that is always within us. This potential to feel fully energized in every cell of our being, in every cell of your body.
As you breathe, tune into that amazing, dynamic, aliveness that is present in every single cell of your entire being.
You can tune in down to your toes, to your knees, to your fingers, to the top of your head, everywhere, you will notice the sense of aliveness, this quality of dynamic movement and this beautiful solar energetic potential.
Setting the Intention for Today
This potential to tap into your creative power, this potential to follow your passions and your dreams, this potential to bring this dynamic aliveness to every moment of your life, to every interaction.
Feel and witness this incredible aliveness, as I say an affirmation out loud. You can say it along with me as you learn it, or you can just listen, whatever feels right to you.
I am limitless energy. I am limitless energy. I am limitless energy. I am limitless energy.
Just keep tuning in, feeling this potential, this incredible potential all around us. This energy is always around us, and within us, and within every cell of our body.
What we focus on expands. As we focus on our aliveness and our energetic potential, we will be able to tap into more energy and to use it, and to channel it into all our passion in to all our pursuits and to all of our dreams.
Taking another deep, full breath. And a very long, luxurious, full exhale, feeling all that beautiful life force energy around you, through you.
You are energy and you are limitless energy.
Bringing your hands together and pray in front of your heart.
Taking a moment for gratitude for anything that rises up spontaneously.
I’m so grateful for this moment together, I’m so grateful to be on this path together.
Sending you so much love Beauty. Namaste. Om Shanti. Peace and love.
