In the fast-paced world we are living in, emotional turbulence has become a universal concern. From stress and anxiety to joy and love, our emotions can often feel like a rollercoaster ride, leaving us yearning for stability.
Emotional imbalance can manifest in various ways, affecting our mental, physical, and spiritual health. Through the lens of yogic philosophy, understanding and embracing our emotions is key to navigating human experience. Emotions are messengers, offering profound insights into our inner selves and overall well-being.
If you feel upset, worried, want to cry or are tempted to give into addictions, give yourself a 3-minute practice (you can gradually increase the time to 11 minutes) to foster emotional balance. This meditation, featured in our Level One Teacher Training manual, encourages you to connect with your emotions, observe them without judgment and guide yourself toward self-awareness and tranquility.
Meditation for Emotional Balance
First, drink a glass of water.
Posture: Sit in easy pose, place the arms across the chest and lock the hands under the armpits; palms are open and against the body. Raise the shoulders up tight against the earlobes. Spine straight up from the back of the head with a neck lock (gently move your chin down towards your chest while always keeping your neck straight).
Breath: The breath will automatically become slow.
Eyes: Close your eyes.
