In this week's episode I share my favorite meditation practice, The Wheel of Awareness!
How to do it:
There are eight points of the wheel, and you systematically move through each point. A great meditation to wake up your whole system.
- Points 1-5: Take a few breaths to focus on each of the five senses. Move through one at a time, and take a few breaths on each sense.
- Point 6: Scan the internal state of your body, flowing down from top to bottom
- Point 7: Check into your emotional state. See if you can describe the emotions you are experiencing with words.
- Point 8: Compassion wish: acknowledge all the people in your circle of influence (everyone in the whole world) and silently wish them compassion: "May all beings, in every direction, without exception, be free from suffering. May they experience joy. May they experience love."
