It’s Day 8 of our 21 Day Yoga Meditation. I just came in from outside. I was lying on my front lawn with my dog, Olivia, both of us enjoying the warm summer sun for hours. I felt the full support of the earth as I gazed up at the trees and the sky. It’s such a simple pleasure really, but one that we often don’t allow ourselves.
Today I offer an eleven minute audio meditation that I call Grounding With the Earth. It provides the obvious soothing benefits of meditation. You can also use this to set some positive intentions, as this meditation reflects on abundance, prosperity, vitality, security and stability. I really like this audio. I hope you do too! Enjoy.
P.S. If you know your chakras, this is for chakra one.
Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old medical system that works to keep one’s health in a perfect state of balance. Ayurveda and yoga are sister disciplines. Ayurvedic remedies are used for both prevention and healing and are carried out entirely by natural means.
I’ve become fascinated with Ayurvedic remedies and have recently discovered the healing properties of sesame oil. Take a look at the video above for tips on getting to sleep more quickly, grounding the body and getting rid of ear aches.
By the way, use regular sesame oil – not toasted sesame oil – unless you really want to smell like sesame!
