“Next to love, balance is the most important thing.”

Balance Meditation

Find a place to sit down comfortably, keeping a straight spine.

Set a timer for 10-15 minutes.

Take five deep breaths, breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth, gently close your eyes.

Focus on the physical sensations of the body and notice the feelings that might arise.

Scan through the body and notice which parts feel comfortable and relaxed, and which parts feel uncomfortable and tense.

Gently count each breath, as you focus on the rising and falling sensation of each breath.

As you count the breath image your body in a balanced state, in all realms. What does this balanced state feel like?

Repeat this cycle of counting the breath for 10-15 minutes. With each breath go deeper into the balanced state of being.
