Flower Meditation: Unfolding

Sitting in a comfortable position with your back supported, look at the picture and take a few deep breaths.

Become aware of your breath as it enters your body and travels down into your chest. Imagine you can breath all the way down into your hips and feel yourself becoming more and more relaxed.
Notice if you have any tension in your body – if so, breathe into it and let it go with each out breath.
Imagine that with every breath, you are breathing in Unlimited Potential. As you look at the flower see how it’s petals are ready to unfold in the sunshine – to reach its full potential. Breathe in this fearless energy to unfold and feel your own energy expand. Imagine you can expand just like the flower, unfolding each petal one by one and shining in the sunlight.
Feel your energy expanding as you unfold into your power, into your true self.
Stay in this space for as long as you want.
When you feel ready, again notice your breath and become aware of your body, your fingers and toes.
Give thanks to your body for all that it does.
Take a few moments to sit quietly before continuing your day.

Flower Meditation: Appreciation

Sitting in a comfortable position with your back supported, look at the picture and take a few deep breaths.
Become aware of your breath as it enters your body and travels down into your chest. Imagine you can breath all the way down into your hips and feel yourself becoming more and more relaxed.
Notice if you have any tension in your body – if so, breathe into it and let it go with each out breath.
Take a moment to appreciate the beautiful delicateness of the Rose; the softness of it’s petals and colour.
Imagine breathing that gentleness and appreciation into your body. With each in-breath feel appreciation going into every cell in your body, filling each one with this beautiful pink-tinted yellow.
From the top of your head to the soles of your feet, feel it spread throughout your whole being; like a warm blanket on a cold day. Feel yourself snuggled in appreciation and love; like a warm smile to your body, mind and soul.
When you feel ready, again notice your breath and become aware of your body, your fingers and toes.
Give thanks to your body for all that it does.
Take a few moments to sit quietly before continuing your day.

Flower Meditation: Cycle of Life

Sitting in a comfortable position with your back supported, look at the picture and take a few deep breaths.
Become aware of your breath as it enters your body and travels down into your chest. Imagine you can breathe all the way down into your hips and feel yourself becoming more and more relaxed.
Feel yourself drawn to the centre of the flower. Like a heartbeat, feel the energy of the flower pulsating with each in and out breath.
Release tension and stress on each out-breath, feeling it leave your body and feel peace in the space between your breaths.
Inhale vitality into each cell in your body with each in-breath.
Take time to just be in this space of inhaling, peace and releasing – the cycle of life.
When you feel ready, again notice your breath and become aware of your body, your fingers and toes.
Give thanks to your body for all that it does.
Take a few moments to sit quietly before continuing your day.
