Water meditation to cleanse your mind and body for Summer
Hi! So most of you know me from Instagram @grac13_uk.
I started getting a lot of questions on my DM about the types of meditation I do.
My brand connects with summer, holidays, having fun, living life and feeling good about yourself. Thats why I design so you guys can feel and look great. So therefore, I want to share this with you, to guide you into a happier mind set for your spring and summer. Especially for those of you who don't get much time off so your summer holiday is extra important to you and you want to be the best possible version of yourself.
Now a lot of people will find meditation hard because you can't "switch off" or you can't find the time. Yet you want to start somewhere right? Or even just give it a go?
So I discovered a really easy time effective way to meditate. I started this on my own with no guidance about 4 years ago. I still do it once a week. However I am now years deep into my journey so I do other types of meditation and energy work.
This stuff doesn't just happen over night, so don't put yourself down if you don't get it first time round. It takes time, patience and most of all commitment. Not just commitment to the activities to better your soul but commitment to YOURSELF which inevitably reflects on your self love.
For some people this cleansing meditation will be more than enough when you do it daily and you might be happy with that. For others you may decide eventually you want to continue your journey and do more, there is no right or wrong, there is no judgement here.
I am a firm believer (in the words of Kyle Grey) that even if you just TRY every day to to connect with yourself the universe will recognise your attempts and for this you will benefit.
Now, I do hear a lot of people say taking a cold shower in the morning is good for you and it should be part of your moring ritual. But if your anything like me, WHO THE HELL wants to wake up dreading having to be cold in the shower!!! NOT ME!
I want to start my day on a positive note and enjoy my morning , enjoy that ten minutes I have to just be on my own, no kids, no phone, no pets, just me before I go to work in warm water. So thats what I do! I love a nice hot bath or shower in the morning to boost my morning.
Now I personally have baths but this works in the shower too, especially if you are pushed for time. You don't have to do this in the morning, If you take a bath or a shower at night then thats totally fine too.
Anyway, I am really new to this so best crack on... but I mainly wanted to share this with you especially linked to my work because I know the pressure of work life, social life, personal life and social media life can be really hard to compress and cope with sometimes.
I hope this helps you like it did me and gives you that little boost you need each day to feel alive, because after all we are here to LIVE AND BE ALIVE and most of all be HAPPY 🙂
STEP 1: Light your candle in a safe place
STEP 2 FOR BATH: Pop some epsom salt in the bath and then being to fill it up to your required temperate.
STEP 2 FOR SHOWER: Turn your shower on to your required temperature
STEP 3: FOR BATH: Get in your bath and just relax for a moment let the water hit you and take three slow controlled deep breaths to release all tension until you sink into your body.
STEP 3 FOR SHOWER: Get in your shower and let the water fall over your body and take three slow controlled deep breaths to release all tension until you sink into your body.
I want you to say this mantra out loud or in your head for the next steps
" I am letting go of all the negativity and releasing it from this part of my body"
As you say this mantra I want you to imagine a black tar leaving that part of your body, being washed away by the water around you or falling on to you.
You might get overwhelmed the fist time you do it. If you get to a part of your body that needs more time then take the time on that part, if you feel like crying because your letting go, cry. Its all part of the process. I cry all the time when I do this, because when you start to do it you can feel the energy in certain areas of your body so it can be emotional.
Remember the mantra and the visualisation is very important for each step whilst keeping your breathing at a nice controlled pace.
STEP 4 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Take your shampoo and wash your hair, as you are rubbing your shampoo into your head imagine you are rubbing away that black tar from your head. As you wash away the foam say the MANTRA and imagine the black tar washing down the drain leaving your head feeling light and almost empty.
STEP 5 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Take your face wash and repeat the same thing on your face and neck.
STEP 6 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Take your shower gel and move to your chest and heart area.You want to create space in your heart, you might feel its acing, this will help you release them toxic energies. Repeat the same thing.
STEP 7 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Move onto your arms start at the top and repeat the same thing pushing the foamy shower gel from the top of your arm to your finger tips repeating the same thing.
STEP 8 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Move onto your stomach where your anxiety lies , we want to release the knots. So massage your shower gel and then push from the middle out repeating the same thing until you feel light and almost empty.
Were almost there... keep going!
STEP 9 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Move onto your bum and repeat the same thing from the middle out.
STEP 1O FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Move to your legs, similar to how you pushed the black tar energy out of your arms, do the same from the top of your legs to the tips of your toes.
STEP 11 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Take 3 deep breaths and imagine your whole body is just light and almost empty ,you have now gotten rid of that negative black tar that was stuck inside your body creating blocks, so WELL DONE!
STEP 12 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: SMILE, and just let the water hit you / surround you.
We now go onto our second mantra.
"May my body mind and soul be filled with this golden light of positivity".
STEP 13 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Take your conditioner and condition your hair give yourself a nice head massage, feel the relaxation of your body and how light you are. Imagine that conditioner is a bright gold light of positivity that has being massaged into your head and as you wash it out imagine it leading all the way down, through your face, your neck and back, your heart and chest, down your arms to the tips of your fingers, filling your whole body up with a soft golden magical light, as it passes through your stomach,lower back, bum, thighs all the way to the tips of your toes.
Now wiggle your toes and fingers and imagine your whole body filled with this amazing energy.
Dry off obviously!!
" Thank you for the water and the fire, air, earth and spirit, thank you universe" then blow out your candle.
I hope that was easy enough for you and I hope this helps you. Please be free to leave comments and good luck!
