I use this quick mindful meditation to either start my day or end my day, and sometimes both! It is something I have found to be simple and help me recharge mentally and physically. You can add in or adjust this however you feel called to. Adding in affirmations before the gratitude portion can be very empowering and uplifting as well!
I hope you find this helpful and enjoy it as much as I do!
Stand softly with your chest and palms open, facing sunlight. Taking slow and controlled breath’s, feel the sunlight washing over you starting at the top of your head and flowing down to your feet. Feel it energizing your body as you imagine the golden sunlight flowing up one side of your spine and down the other. If you are doing this at sunrise or sunset, what other colors are in the sky that you can cleanse your body with?
Continue your slow and controlled breath’s as you then imagine roots coming out from your feet and flowing into the earth. Feeling the loving mother earth energy come up through your roots and into your body. Filling your body with peaceful and loving green light.
Now flowing with your breath, say softly “thank you” as many times as you are guided. Feeling gratitude fill your chest and flow into the rest of your body and the space around you.
Mindfully bring your hands into prayer pose and bow your head, and softly say “thank-you” one last time. Noticing your body and how you feel in this moment.
You can come back to this space as often as you need to throughout the day.
