Awake & Evolve: Cycle 3 - 5 Minute Meditation Practice
"Deep down mind is space occupied, filled by thoughts. If you remove some thoughts, space is created -- or discovered, or reclaimed. If you go on removing your thoughts, by and by you go on regaining your space. This space is meditation. Find a quiet and comfortable space where you can perform this meditation."
5 Minute Meditation
Set a timer for your meditation practice.
Close your eyes and begin to relax your body and breath.
Start by taking 10 deep breaths in and out through your nose.
Focus all of your attention on counting your breath.
Try not to worry if you lose count or focus, just keep coming back to your breath.
Clear your mind of all thoughts, focusing on only counting each breath as you inhale and exhale.
Keep focusing on lengthening each breath. Let each breath flow in slower, deeper, and longer.
Stay with this meditation for 5 minutes.
