Focus and Detox Your Mind with Sound Meditation

May 23, 2011


Sometimes we need to take a break to have some water, breathe and refocus. If we just sit and listen to our body, we will relax, reduce stress, and detox our mind. Did you know that we can also heal ourselves with certain healing sounds our body needs at the moment?

I would like to share with you this extract from the article Sound Healing by author and psychic Misa Hopkins.

To intuitively sense what sound your body needs at any given moment, arises from your ability to listen to and sense your body without being distracted by external sounds. Focus and Detox Your Mind with Sound Meditation The sound emerges freely, when you are not encumbered by predetermined ideas about what you think that sound should be or judgments about the quality of the sound. Sound flows freely from a quiet mind.

Fortunately, if you are curious about sound healing, sound itself can help you focus and quiet your mind. Consider this very simple exercise:

1. Begin by sighing out loud from high to low. Do this about three times until your body is relaxed.

2. Sigh out loud again, only this time land on a sound that feels like home and hold it. Make this sound for about one minute, breathing between each sounding.

3. Sit quietly for one minute and notice what is happening in your body.

Repeat this exercise landing on a new sound that feels comfortable for you to make. Hold this sound for about one minute and notice for one minute. Do your best to observe without analyzing or attempting to figure anything out.

For example, you might notice that you feel warm all over or in a particular area of your body. You might see light, or feel energized or at peace. Give yourself permission to simply notice without needing to give it any meaning.

Tea Meditation to Detox Your Mind and Reduce Anxiety

February 21, 2011


What if I were to tell you that a cup of detox tea can help you detox your mind of negative thoughts and cleanse harmful toxins from your body?

Have you ever thought about drinking a cup of hot tea as meditative experience? If you slow down and drink your tea with awareness, you can call it tea meditation. As with any meditation, drinking tea will lower your high blood pressure, slower your heart rate, improve circulation, and reduce anxiety.

Doing a breathing exercise during tea time can help you detox your body and boost yourTea Meditation to Detox Your Mind and Reduce Anxiety immunity. Taking time to drink tea can also help improve your concentration and build self-confidence and self- discipline.

“When we sip tea, we are on our way to serenity.”– Alexandra Stoddard

I would like to share with you a Tea Meditation by author and spiritual director Melissa Roberts I found at www.suite101. com. With a cup of tea in hand and twenty minutes with no interruptions, prepare to enjoy a quiet, relaxing exercise.

1. Situate the body in a chair, with the back straight. Cup the hot tea mug in the hands at chest level.

2. Bring the cup of tea to the chest. Notice the warmth radiating from the cup. Now touch the cup to the chest. Experience the warmth of the body against the cup. Feel how the breath pushes and recedes against the cup.

3. Close the eyes. Focus on the breath going in and out. See how deep and slow it is possible to breathe. Take three of the slowest, deepest breaths possible. Feel the warm energy of the body pulsing from the bottom of the breath to the top of it.

4. Now open the eyes and lift the cup of tea to the nose. How does it smell? How does the steam feel against the face? Breathe in the warmth, and during the exhale imagine the warmth traveling all the way to the bottom of the feet. Take three breaths in this manner.

5. Lift the tea to the lips and take a sip. Notice how the liquid feels in the mouth and throat. Visualize that warmth traveling all the way to the toes. Take three deep breaths, inhale and exhale, feeling the warmth from the tea traveling down to the feet then up into the head.

6. Repeat sipping the tea, with three deep breaths between sips, until all the tea is gone. Hold the empty cup in the lap, and imagine warmth from the cup radiating outward and warming the entire body. Visualize the body in a cocoon of warmth, like a giant tea mug.

7. Take five deep breaths, in and out, and then open the eyes. Sit still and move gently, to enjoy the effects of the meditation as long as possible. Do not try to get up too fast, as the muscles need time to transition out of the exercise.


Breathe, smile and be happy.
