Week 7, Day 3 – Eliminating Negative Habits Meditation, Part 3

“You leave old habits behind by starting out with the thought, ‘I release the need for this in my life.'”

~Dr. Wayne W. Dyer~

Close the eyes and take a few moments to create a quiet space and prepare for a meditation practice.

Count 10-15 long slow deep breaths.

Begin by asking yourself the following questions:

Do I want to continue down the same path with these negative habits?

Do I want to make a positive change in this negative habit?

Now imagine yourself letting go of the bad habit. Feel it float up and away from your body.

Notice the relief and release you feel as you see the bad habit float away.

Now bring to mind the list of positive habits you wish to create this week.

Think about these positive habits, and pick one to work on in this practice.

Imagine yourself participating in the new positive habit. What does it feel like, look like, smell or taste like?

Dive deep into the senses as you imagine this new habit in your life.

Lengthen the breath, as you count 15 slow deep breaths.

Stay here as long as you wish, creating a positive space with your breath.
