Meditation Exercise: Mantra


1.  Close your eyes. Sit still and upright, relaxed and alert.

2.  Focus on your breathing. With each exhale let your body relax more deeply.

3.  When you are ready, begin to repeat a single word in your mind with every exhale you take. Try to focus on the word, allowing all other thoughts to float gently by without dwelling on them.

Examples:  Jesus, Brigid, Spirit, Gaia, Sophia, etc. Choose the word that expresses your deepest longing/need at this point in your life journey.

This meditative practice works for all spiritual traditions.
