I would like to share with you a guided meditation. You can use this in preparation for business meetings, for pictures. You can use it before interviews. You can use it before going to networking meetings. There are many different applications and the thing about meditation is it will be a complete game changer. It really can change your life, change your mindset, change the way that you are caring for other people.
In addition to the business consulting, the coaching and the businesses that I have run, I’ have also trained as a yogi and taught in 15 to 20 countries around the world, many cities across Europe and the States. I have also published a book entitled The Kosher Sutras,
That is why I am bringing meditation in to this arena..
If we focus on actually getting ourselves “in state”, the guided meditation will prepare you for potentially challenging, potentially difficult situations. What I would like you to do is to begin by sitting in a position which is going to be comfortable but still somewhat alert and supported.
If you sit in a chair with your feet firmly on the ground, make sure that your back is not resting on the backrest. Your buttocks will be towards the edge of the chair. Feet are spread on the ground so your toes are spread and are actually about a hip width apart. Make sure that you push into your feet somewhat so that you engage your hamstrings. That will lift right the way up through your chest. Inhale and breathe into the sounds of your rib cage and exhale. Inhale and breathe into your lungs so you spread your lungs and exhale. Keep breathing in so you are always stretching the back of the rib cage from the inside.
Now place your hands so that they are cupped in your lap comfortably. Relax your shoulders and keep a sense of alertness and a deep connection throughout. If you have not already done so, please close your eyes. Relax your jaw. Relax your forehead. Relax your eyeballs in their sockets and breathe very deeply into the pit of your abdomen. Inhale and exhale. Now breathe right the way down. Imagine you are breathing right into your toes. Inhale and breathe out. As you breathe out, just feel the energy rising. Inhale and breathe right the way into your fingertips so you take the breath. Imagine it circulating throughout your whole body, which it technically is through the bloodstream. Breathe out.
Now take five very deep breaths in your own time and keep the breaths so that they are going into every cell and every fiber of your body. Count your own five breaths and begin now. Notice a sense of peacefulness within your body and try to locate where this sense of peace or shalom, where it sits within your body. It could be in your stomach, in your heart, in your hands, in your head. Really just create some space, see where it is and allow it to expand with every single inhalation.
Inhale and feel that sense of peace expanding. Exhale and it just stays as is. Inhale, breathe in and allow your sense of peacefulness to expand. Exhale and just hold it there. Inhale so it begins to envelop and encompass your entire body so you are really embodying an carrying a sense of peace and exhale. Breathe in. Just take some breaths and notice how that sense of peacefulness really feels.
Now shift your attention to your brain and imagine your brain is really softening and just relaxing so it is dropping down towards your heart. So your brain and your heart are connected. Keep softening. If there is any tension in your jaw, lips are gently together and keep breathing and softening, breathing and softening.
Bring your attention to your upper back and check that your heart is still lifted, not overstretching your back but really check you are alert. Now we need to take your attention outwards. Be aware of the sounds around you. For the next few breaths, listen to everything that is on the outside and take it in through your ears, listening as closely as you can whilst continuing to breathe as deeply as you are able.
Keep taking that breath deeper and deeper. I would like you to take your focus onto the outside, to really listen as closely as you can for the next few breaths. Listen to everything that your ears can take in. Keep your breath going energetically throughout your body but listen to all of the sounds, the birds, the cars going past, floorboards creaking. For the next five breaths, just listen to those sounds.
And continue to take those sounds in through your ears and now be aware of the information being collected by your skin. Can you feel the air? Is it warm? Is it cold? Is there a breeze? How does the skin feel against that clothes that you are wearing? Notice the skin in your feet, in your calves, in your thighs, around your waist, your stomach and your back, your upper chest, shoulders, forearms. Just be aware of all this information which is being gathered and collected.
With your eyes gently shut, keeping them shut, what colors can you see? What sensations are you receiving? Finally, open up to your intuition. Is there any other information that you are currently getting, anything which your heart or your other senses are being spoken to? Keep this sense of peace which we’ve really established earlier and this sense of alertness, listening to everything around you.
Now take a breath in and for the next few breaths, imagine you’re just breathing in vitality and energy. Feel a sense of electricity as you breathe it in, enlivening your toes, your ankles, your calves, your legs, your waist, your belly, your upper chest, your arms, your fingers, your neck, throat, head, scalp, hair, ears and breathe in. Just focus this electricity, this power, the prana, the chi, the neshama. Breathe in and breathe out.
In a moment, we are going to open our eyes and hold with you the sense of peaceful groundedness but also the sense of listening to everything around you and the sense of vitality and alertness. Whether you’re going into a pitch meeting, interview, meeting with a colleague or meeting with a spouse, just be alert, aware and fully alive. Take three deep breaths. Inhale … exhale … inhale … exhale … inhale … exhale and open your eyes.
Hi, welcome back. thank you for sitting through this. If it was difficult for you, that’s okay. Meditation isn’t meant to be easy. it is not meant to be hard. It just occurs however it occurs. But as one of my teachers, Martine Bachelor, taught me, she said, “Think of it like you’re flossing your teeth. You just do it every day and if you feel good then you feel good, if you don’t then you don’t but you’re keeping it clean.” So one thing about meditation is it is a practice. it is literally practicing for life. it is a daily thing. Hopefully, you’re feeling in a calmer state now.
I don’t want to talk too much but I want to leave you feeling good so just really stay in state and know that the state that you’re currently in, the state of being hopefully peaceful, hopefully alert and hopefully ready just to take on the world. Feel that electricity. Keep on listening. Know that you can access this at any time you want. You’ve got this power within you or you can come back and watch this video.
I hope you’ve enjoyed it.
