Hello everyone! Today, was Soul Feather’s second meet up! Woo! I introduced two different meditations tonight, both of them were inspired by author of Spirit Junkie and May Cause Miracles, Gabrielle Bernstein. I fall more in love everyday with my meditation practice and I am constantly looking for new ones to practice on my own and share with others to call in the peace and raise the vibration.

The first meditation that we opened with was to help quiet the mind and body when experiencing intense moments of either high stress, impulsive thinking or overreactive thoughts and behaviors. This meditation is a Kundalini meditation and it can be done just about anywhere… I have done it in my car, at home and even at my job. It is accompanied with a great mudra, your breath, of course, and a fun shake it out sesh. So, if you like to shake your chakras, hold groovy mudras for focus and feel instantaneous calm… Then, this meditation is for you:

Also, we shook it out to Florence and the Machine’s “Shake It Out” song. You can shake it out to your own song of choice, or choose this one by clicking here: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WbN0nX61rIs

The closing meditation was another one inspired by beautiful soul, Gabrielle Bernstein. Another simple meditation that can be practiced anywhere. It is a pulse meditation accompanied with a mantra. This one is extra cool because it is regulated by your own heartbeat. The idea of this meditation is to think of a mantra or use the one that is introduced in Gabby’s video and say it a long with the rhythm of your heartbeat. Gabrielle introduces the term “Sat Nam,” which is a Kundalini Yoga mantra that is used often. It is considered the awareness mantra and it is the vibration of this mantra that is so special. “Sat” means “truth” and when it is said or thought it causes a vibration up through the crown chakra. “Nam” means “name” and when is it said or thought it causes a grounding vibration to occur. The words together create a meaning of “true name,” “truth is my name” or “truth identified,” and by meditating on it along with the breathe calls in the vibration of truth.
