It has been such a pleasure, joining with each other in this Global Meditation to bring Calm, Healing energy to our world culture.
Our final meditation will be at the moment of Solstice. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere it is Winter, and those of us in the Southern Hemisphere it is Summer Solstice.
No matter where we live in the world, this is a time of New Beginnings. A time for shifting our awareness. For our final 2008 meditation we will be meditating on the energy of the heart. The heart with in each of us, as well as the harmony of our collective hearts as a group. The ability our heart has for compassion, empathy, awakening and immeasurable potential is our intention for this very special solstice meditation.
When the sun shines directly over the tropic of Capricorn. The tropic of capricorn carries an incredibly stong, supportive energy for being able to focus your intentions (goals) into physical reality. It is this energy that makes us want to set our New Years resolutions at this time of year, and we want to enter this time with our hearts beating as ONE for a new prosperity of peace, awareness, harmony, and joy to flood our planet.
The winter solstice occurs December 21 2008 at 12:04pm universal time. In Utah we move through the solstice at 5:04am MST, will do this mediation from our homes.
For our Solstice Celebration we will repeat it again Monday Evening December 22nd at 5:30pm. I hope you can join me in person Monday at the WMY Center for the meditation, some gentle Yoga and holiday cheer. The WMY Center is located at: 2230 N. University Parkway CottonTree ClockTower Suite 2E in Provo. If you plan on attending please R.S.V.P and feel free to bring a small plate of something to share.
We begin this wholehearted practice with the "Anahata" breath. Anahata is the Sanskrit word for the heart chakra. It means: "Unstruck Sound" and refers to the untaped potential of our physical, mental and spiritual heart.
This breath is done by finding your pulse and inhaling up four heart beats, followed by exhaling down four heart beats. Following the rythm of this breath will bring us together. Let your whole body be flooded with the rythm of your heart, and stay with it for as long as you can. You don't need to keep track of your heart-rate once you get the general timing.
When your heart feels open or expansive (which can be as simple as a warming sensation), on your inhale let the energy of your heart flood your brain. On your exhale let your heart energy flush through-out every cell of your body.
Please join us by posting your comments and impressions at the end of this entry. I look forward to participating together.
I will have my annual holiday gift, "Orange Rum Chakra Gingerbread Cookie", for each of you who can make it to the center. (So I make sure there are enough please R.S.V.P.)
Peace & Blessings from one "co-heart" to another.
