Begin in a comfortable seated position in a space that is free from distractions, either on a chair or sitting on a meditation pillow. Rest your arms gently on your knees, palms facing up to feel lifted or palms down to feel grounding.
Slow down the breath to a smooth four-count: counting on an inhale up to four (1,2,3,4) then exhale counting back down (4,3,2,1).
When ready, continue to breathe steady while saying aloud or to yourself the following affirmations at least three times. Of course, you're welcome to say them as many times as it feels right. If an affirmation doesn't sit well with you, experience this and explore the reason why. Consider adjusting the affirmations to see how it feels.
#1: All that I need to have extraordinary impact and live my legacy is either with me now or well on its way. Imagine a bright red light at the center of the pelvis glowing brighter with each breath.
#2: I am growing stronger and more confident in my abilities every day. Imagine an orange light glowing around the naval glowing brighter with each breath.
#3: I believe in my abilities and am worthy of greatness. Imagine a yellow light at the solar plexus glowing brighter with each breath.
#4: I love who I am and see challenges as opportunities to grow stronger. Imagine a green light at the heart glowing brighter with each breath.
#5: I speak with confidence, continue to build empowering relationships, and mentor those who ask for help. Imagine a bright blue light at the throat glowing brighter with each breath.
#6: I follow my own path and tune into my source to guide me. Imagine a bright indigo light between the eyes glowing brighter with each breath.
#7: I embrace change, follow my bliss, and breathe away fear. Imagine a bright violet light above the crown of the head glowing brighter with each breath.
Before moving on to the next part of your day, continue to breathe steady for at least a minute to find grounding and focus in the present. Count each breath and whenever a thought distracts your counting, simply come back to counting the breath.
Send a note of thanks to yourself for taking this time to practice meditation as you continue to grow into the greatest version of yourself.
