Emotions stand for “Energy in Motion”. When we feel strong emotions it clouds our thinking – we just don’t think straight. We can’t seem to separate the emotions from the thoughts and therefore can’t see clearly what is really in front of us.
Here is a simple Meditation to move the emotions through your body to give you clarity.
Meditation for Emotional Balance
Here’s How to Do It
Sit in Easy Pose or feet flat on a chair – spine is stragiht.
Place your arms across the chest and lock hands under the armpits, palms open and against the body.
Raise the shoulders up tight reaching toward the earlobes – like you are a pouting child.
Apply Neck Lock by tucking the neck in toward the chest with the spine straight.
Eyes are closed. The breath will automatically become slow.
Continue for 3 mins.
To end, relax the hands down, sit quietly and enjoy your inner space of peace. You will notice that you have created a space independent of your rational mind. Your mind will still have thoughts and you can observe them, but you can choose to be in your peaceful space or neutral mind.
Pulling the shoulders up toward the ears and tightly locking the entire area creates a solid break to the four sides of the brain. After 2 or 3 minutes, thoughts will be there, but one does not feel them. This is a very effective method of balancing the brain.
