How to do this Meditation
Before you embark on this meditative journey, select a place in your home. You may want to choose a quiet room, for example. Get yourself comfortable and then follow these steps.
To begin this meditation, sit in Easy Pose, or any position that feels right to you. Ensure that your back is as straight as possible—while still remaining comfortable.
You may choose to sit in a chair. If that is the case, ensure that your feet are flat when touching the ground and that your legs are side-by-side.
Next up, open your mouth to form an ‘O’ position. When you have done that, stick your tongue out and angle it to the right, to form a ‘Q’ position.
You will need to keep your tongue out as you meditate. Should you find this hard, you can use your teeth to pin it in place.
Breathe in and out through the mouth. Each of your breaths should be long and deep. You will need to keep your tongue pointing out toward the right during your breathwork.
While you are doing this relaxation meditation, your eyes should be closed.
To help you relax and unwind, you may want to play a beautiful music track. You can choose any music that speaks to you and creates a calm environment.
Continue with this divine meditation for between three and seven minutes.
When you are ready to finish your session, stay in the same position, breathe in and then suspend the breath for 15 seconds.
Next, squeeze the breath out firmly through the mouth.
Repeat this process a second time but only suspend the breath for 10 seconds. Repeat it a third time and suspend the breath for five seconds. Relax and finish.
The modern world is rife with stress. The moment you turn on the news or clock into work, you may see your worries surge. While there are things in life that you simply cannot change, taking the time to relax and meditate will help. Use this deep relaxation meditation whenever you need to do so. After all, we all deserve a moment of peace now and then.
