5-Minute Meditations: Opening Up & Letting Go


The 5-Minute Meditations series was created to help us fit in time for meditation, relaxation, and looking inward – even when we’re busy. You guessed it, meditations are usually 5 minutes or less, meaning only .04% of your day. The 5-Minute Meditations series is a great introduction to meditation for beginners, and a helpful resource for more experienced practitioners.

This second installment of the series is a short meditation using our breath as a metaphor for transformation. This is a nice practice for those feeling the need to free themselves from stress or a burden, or who are looking to make a change in their lives.

Before You Begin

Before starting, find a comfortable seated position or even feel free to lie down – find the position that will be most comfortable and peaceful for your practice today.

And remember: anything that happens in this meditation is perfect. Thank yourself for taking this time for you.

This is not about football – the game or the ball; it’s not about cheating or lying or lying about cheating. Nor will I divulge whether or not, as a long time New Englander, I’m a PAT’s fan…that’ll initiate a different […] Read more »
