A meditation on the present moment. Thich Nhat Hanh — 'The present moment is the only moment available to us and it is the door to all other moments.' Listen to the wisdom of the trees, feel connected to them. They may talk to you, in their own quiet way. Of peace and beauty and the present moment. We all share our environment with birds and insects and trees. Mostly we are caught up in our busy mind and take no notice of them. If we notice them, it brings us into the present moment. They begin to feel like part of our family or community and our whole world can change. We begin to feel a deep sense of belonging.

Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest and most effective forms of relaxation. It is practiced laying down. Initially it is used to remove the exhaustion of modern living, giving you energy and bringing more peace and joy into your life. You may fall asleep as you practice. Over time you become more aware of your body and how to relax, you can focus and slow down your breath. You can let go of pain. Yoga Nidra helps to develop powerful internal awareness and great mental strength. You have the rest of your life to practice, growing stronger and wiser. Take your time, enjoy each moment.

This is my personal favourite meditation to teach as it empowers you to make the very best of your life.
As your breath slows and your mind quietens your hear your inner voice, your inner wisdom and you listen and learn. Slowly... or maybe not so slowly you begin to change your life. You may start a course or give up a well paid job or take up bush-walking. You realise that how much you earn is not as important as how you spend your precious time and that there is a big difference between abundance and wealth.

4 - A change of heart - Loving Kindness
This is the fourth of The Rainbow Teachings. How to love - The heart chakra. How many of us have been taught to love ourselves? Usually we are taught to compete with others at school or even before that. We can never be good at everything, therefore we are always failing. We are always trying to please others or be better than others, our teachers, parents, friends, partners, children, god. What makes you happy or content? Can you love and care for yourself first? If you can't, if you are full of need because your life is unfulfilled. Then you teach those you love to be needy. Let us go back to the wisdom of this 5th Century Meditation This is an ancient Buddhist Meditation known as Metta Meditation. It could change how you see things.....how you feel things. I hope it fills you with self - love. Namaste Julie
5 - A meditation for Inner Peace & Silence
This is the fifth of the keys to health & happiness. The element of Space - feeling it, finding it. Bring silence and peace into your life. Practice Akasha Mudra - Touching the Void Hand Gesture. Free up space within your body and mind by getting rid of things you don't need. Get rid of your clutter, make your self a special space in your home. A sanctuary. This mudra helps you in gaining the virtue of aparigraha or non- greediness. The stone is turquoise. Listen to the teacher within. "From my heart I speak my truth with clarity, certainty & love" Affirmation is from The book of stones.
6- A meditation for Inner Wisdom
Third Eye Chakra Connect to your inner wisdom. Learn an important breathing technique in yoga known as Nadi Shodhana.

Don't get stuck in this busy modern world. Find ways to step out and into nature. Stay wild and free.
Hakini Mudra - Focus
In yoga philosophy HAKINI is the guardian of the doorway to higher consciousness. She personifies the energy of the Third Eye Chakra In Western philosophy this Mudra helps you tap into your intuition and inner wisdom. The two eyes see the outside world, your third eye which sits between your brow sees your inner world or maybe "feels" is a better word. This powerful Mudra is said to enhance your intellectual capacity. If your mind is in a whirl, if you are unable to focus properly, if you are indecisive, forgetful or feel like you are losing your mind. Try this short yoga sequence. Let me know if it helps. Namaste Julie
