The next time you are feeling overwhelmed, scattered or unfocused. Be a mountain.
Being a mountain allows you to reconnect with the earth and draw from her strength. Being a mountain grounds you deeply in the moment.
So how do you “be a mountain”?
- Stand or sit comfortable
- Inhale deeply and exhale completely. Continue mindfully breathing for about a minute.
- Imagine the most beautiful mountain you have ever seen, either in person or in a picture.
- As you visualize your mountain, let your body become the mountain. Feel the solidness, strength and majesty. Take on the qualities of the mountain.
- Rest in your mountain body for a few minutes. Remain unmoved by any thoughts, fears, worries or other things around you…just as the mountain is unmoved.
When you feel ready open your eyes and move gently.
