In my last post I described the everyday benefits of balancing the active and passive aspects of your lifestyle, and with this guided meditation you will be able to balance yin and yang in your body and mind. This meditation helps to bring awareness to the yin and yang aspects of the breath. The inhale is yang: expansive, light, and full. The exhale is yin: sinking, dense and contracted. This recording goes through the contrast and then combines the two energies in the heat, with yin energy rising from the navel, and yang energy sinking down from the third eye center. This combination creates a healing elixir within you, seeking balance and coherence within your physiology. It increases communication between your nervous system, blood, organs and other aspects of your body to facilitate the healing process. This also helps with balancing emotions, reducing excesses and increasing awareness of how you truly feel. This guided meditation is perfect to use if you have trouble falling asleep. In the beginning and end I encourage you to sink and relax into the surface that you’re laying on. Encouraging peace of mind, stillness, and silence as you drift into a sleeping state. Enjoy this balancing guided meditation, and look for a yin/yang Qi gong video to be released in the next couple weeks. Transcript: This guided meditation will help you to tap into vitality, healing and peace of mind by combining yin and yang energy within yourself. It will end in a calm and relaxing way, so if you need to be awake and aware after this meditation, you may want to set an alarm for 30 minutes to make sure you get up after the session has ended. Find a relaxed position, laying on your back on a bed or floor. You can place a pillow under your knees if you have any discomfort in your lower back. As your body settles into this relaxed position, adjusting as necessary, your mind begins to slow down. Scan your body from head to toe, noticing where you feel energized and flowing, and areas where you may feel discomfort and stagnation. As you scan your body, notice how heavy you feel. Feel the power of gravity pulling you down, deeper and deeper into the cushion. On the every breath out feel the abdomen sink deeper, allowing more space for the inhale to fill your belly, mid drift, chest, and lungs. A full yogic breath, giving your body all the relaxing benefits of deep breathing. As the breath deepens, the exhale continues to help you sink lower and lower, down into the earth. A sense of peace, silence and returning home is present within you. On your next inhale, notice the contrast of growing, expanding, filling yourself with light, love and sun energy on every breathe in. The breath out slows you down, sinking into silence and peace. The breathe in you are floating on a cloud, the sunrise light shining through you, expanding and overfilling you. The sun sets on the breath out, your body caressed by a half-moon that floats you down to the earth. Continue this practice, of floating and sinking, expanding and contracting. This is yin yang awareness through the breath. The boundless energy of yang; expansive, universal, light and vast. Contrasted with the dense energy of yin, still, peaceful, quiet, and settling. With your next breath in allow the yin energy to rise from your lower abdomen, and exhale the yang energy to sink from your 3rd eye and crown, combining in your heart center. The moon rises as the sun sets, spiraling in your heart. A full yogic breath, from your lower abdomen, up above your chest to your lungs. Allowing the yin and yang to create a white and black spiral in your chest. Breathe in and Concentrate in your heart, and with the breath out let the energy expand beyond your body, filling your entire consciousness with this healing elixir of yin and yang. Continue this visualization, cultivating and overflowing with this healing energy. The combination of the yin and yang is like home away from home, peace with power, silence with action, expansive and grounded, lighthearted and determined, playful yet disciplined. Release the visualization and allow your attention to come back to the body and breath. Scan your body once again, from heat to toe, feeling the deep peace you’ve cultivated within yourself. If you wish, you can allow your mind to wander, finding a deep, restful sleep. Slowing down, and sinking deeper and deeper into the earth. At peace and at one with the universe.
