Meditation Tuesdays

Would you like try a meditation with me? 
Children's Meditation Called "Peace" for ages 5-13
Close your eyes and relax. Try not to think of other things but just for a moment watch your breath. Feel the air flowing in and out of your body.

If you get really good at this all you will be able to notice is the air flowing in and out.

Then can you imagine that it is not air that you are breathing in but peace. Think about a time when you have felt very peaceful and very strong and try and breathe in that feeling.

Breathe it in and feel the peace flowing throughout your entire body. Feel that the peace is flowing into your heart and then down to your toes and up through your arms and to the top of your head. Imagine that peace as a white light that is full of strength and calmness and it is filling you with that light.

As you breathe out try imagining that you are throwing out of yourself, any fear or anger that you might have. Throw out the anger like it was dirty water.

Breathe in and out like this for a few minutes and when you feel completely full of peace and strength you can forget about breathing out anger and imagine that you are breathing peace into the world. You are creating peace for others to feel. You are helping the whole world to feel more peace, this is a very powerful gift that you are giving.

When you are ready, relax a little but keep your eyes closed. Just for a few moments think about how you can be more peaceful in your life. Perhaps the next time you are about to get angry over something very small, remember that angry people make themselves unhappy and others around them unhappy. Remember the strength that comes from peace.

When you are ready take a couple of deep breaths and relax – your meditation is finished.
