Follow Your Truth – Meditation

Follow Your Truth – Meditation

How would it feel to be completely true to yourself? To feel completely alive and empowered? Isnít that a yearning most of us share? Here is a meditation to help you recognize, find, and follow, your own energy.

Itís in recognizing your own energy, and learning to follow your inner guidance about it, that wonderful things will unfold for you, things that you may not yet even imagine. Here is a restful meditation to start you in the process right now:

Sit or lie down in a comfortable position. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath and relax your body. Take another deep breath and relax your mind. Continue to breathe slowly and deeply and let go of all tension or anxiety.

As you relax, you find yourself in a deep, quiet place inside. Allow yourself to just rest in that place for a few moments, with nothing you need to do or think about.

From this deep, quiet place, begin to sense the life within you. Imagine that you are following your own energy, feeling it, trusting it, moving with it in every moment of your life. You are being completely true to yourself, speaking and living your truth. You feel alive and empowered. Imagine that you are expressing your creativity fully and freely, and let yourself enjoy the experience.

Do this meditation as often as you like.
