Self Blessing Meditation December 12, 2011

Filed under: Meditation — rainbowyoga @ 9:19 pm

  • Sit with spine straight in a chair or cross-legged, eyes closed.
  • Arch the right arm over the head, palm facing down 6 inches above the crown of the head.
  • Raise the left forearm parallel to the ground. Bend the elbow so the hand is touching your chest, palm facing down.
  • Repeat out loud in a monotone:  “I bless myself, I bless myself, I bless myself. I am, I am.”
  •  Practice for 3 minutes.
  • To end, inhale deeply, hold the breath and repeat the mantra mentally. Exhale.
  • Repeat this sequence 2 more times. Relax.

This meditation frees us from guilt, blame, shame, resentment and bitterness. By blessing ourselves, God immediately and spontaneously blesses us.
