Meditation to Deliver Contentment

This meditation can deliver containment and contentment. It creates a direct connection to the radiant body and gives us control of the mind. Control of our mind gives us the opportunity to allow contentment as a choice—a state of being to be assimilated into our daily awareness and psyche.

Part One

Posture: Sit straight in Easy Pose.

Mudra: Raise both hands to shoulder level, palms facing forward with the elbows relaxed down. Point the index fingers up and hold the other fingers with the thumbs.

Eyes: The eyes are closed.

Breath: Conscious, slow, Long Deep Breathing through the "O" of your mouth.

Time: 11 minutes.

Part Two

Continue with the same posture and deepen the breath even more, pulling the navel toward the spine with each exhale. Meditate on your mind. Achieve a state where your mind remains balanced despite what anybody says. If you count your values, you give your virtues a chance, and vice-versa.

Time: 11 minutes.

To End: Inhale deeply, hold and squeeze your spine, muscle by muscle. Exhale. Repeat 2 times, on the last breath squeeze every part of your body from head to toe. Relax.
