7 Steps to Inner Peace

meditating-1170645_640One of the hallmarks of the Healing Touch Program is the emphasis on self-care. This week I offer an exercise to support your health and well-being in 7 easy steps.

  1. Take a moment to find a comfortable sitting position, feet flat on the floor or cross-legged.
  2. Take 3 deep breaths, noticing the natural expansion of your abdomen with each inhalation and the release with each exhalation.
  3. Then, with the next 3 breaths, feel your muscles unwinding with each exhalation. Letting go…letting go…letting go.
  4. Continue to breathe deeply and slowly.
  5. Now, think of a place or object of beauty. With the next 3 inhalations, welcome that beauty into your lungs, replacing the tension that you have released. Notice a feeling of calm and inner peace. Receiving…receiving…receiving.
  6. Continue in this manner for another minute or longer, breath by breath, releasing with each exhale…receiving with each inhale.
  7. Know that this inner peace supports you in body, mind, and spirit.
