Moment of Calm, How To Get Peace of Mind. Now!


moment of calm look up at sky imageArticle by Ntathu Allen

Dear gentle reader, what joyful sunny weather we are having here in South East London, perfect to cultivate a sense of wellness and peace in your heart. Today’s Moment of Calm, Staring up at the Sky, is a simple meditation technique you can do anywhere anytime you feel cramped or stuck in your present situation and want to relax and have a more cheerful outlook on life.

Staring Up At the Sky

  1. Take a moment to step outside and find a quiet space where you can stand. If it’s too cold to go outdoors you can practice this meditation by staying inside and look through a window; or you could gaze at the scenic image accompanying this blog  or  if stuck on a busy tube, you can hold onto a handrail, close your eyes, visualise and practice this meditation
  2. Take a few moments to reconnect with your breath and when ready gaze up at the sky.
  3. Observe the colours, textures of the clouds, or if night time, look for the stars and moon.
  4. Take a few steady breaths as you lower your shoulders, stretch out your fingers and  toes  and start to ease any tension or stress from your body.
  5. Stay focused on the feeling of relaxation in your body as you continue to notice how you are breathing and gaze around and observe the vastness of the sky.
  6. Allow yourself to bask in the spaciousness and awe of the moment and recognise that you too are part of this great expansive creation we call the Earth. Each breath you take in, feel as if you are absorbing the magic and splendour of the Earth and as you breathe out allow your body to relax a bit more as you tune in and rest in the silence and spaciousness inside your mind.
  7. Stay in this space, taking 5-10 slow steady refreshing breaths before returning to your everyday breath and re-engaging with your day.
