Get in a comfortable sitting position or do this lying down before you go to sleep :
Think of anything you are worried about, angry about, or afraid of. Then think “I am letting go with balance”.
Think again: ” I am letting go with balance”.
Now get more specific. For example: “I am letting my need for others’ approval go with balance”. Breathe. Silence.
Or, ” I am letting my fear of not having enough money go with balance”. Breathe. Silence. Or, “I am letting go of worrying about my mother’s health with balance”. Silence
The next step to this meditation is to connect with the Divine. Think: “God is able”. Breathe. Silence.
Again: “God is able”. Silence.
Now, get more specific. For example: “God is able to see the perfect person that I am” or “God is able to supply me with anything I need”, or “God is able to express perfect health”.
This process of release and letting go and putting our trust in a higher power is incredibly freeing and peace giving.
I highly recommend this meditation before bed, first thing in the morning, or anytime you are feeling stressed, upset, or worried.
