MEDITATION WITH HYSSOP
“Tapping into the flow of life”
Contemplate an area in your life you wish for healing. It can be a physical issue, a psychological issue such as a trauma or fear, it can be a relationship, an area associated with your work or a goal, or simply wishing to connect to the divine.
Hold the subject you are focusing on in your heart while taking long, slow, deep breaths with hyssop. Continue the inhalation for a few minutes. Then, be still.
Let go of all imagery and focus on your navel area. Take several long, slow, deep breaths with your awareness on your navel. Then, be still.
Focus on the top of your head while taking long, slow, deep breaths. Do this for several minutes then be still.
Repeat this process up to seven times. Practice stillness between each cycle.
Each cycle should take you deeper and deeper, stop whenever you achieve a suffice to level of peace and stillness.
