Today’s meditation addresses the dilemma when any hunger or need doesn’t get satisfied, our bodies keep asking for more. The hungrier you are, the hungrier you stay, no matter how much food you eat.
It is the habits we form that unbalance our body from being nourished. There are simple steps we can take to bring natural balance to our body with self-care and self-awareness.
Getting Out of the Hunger Dilemma
Today’s Centering Thought is: I am the source of my own inner healing.
Today’s Mantra: So Hum (I am.)
Center yourself to begin a quite solitude of mind and spirit with the thought “I am the source of my own inner healing.” Then begin to meditate by repeating the mantra: So Hum. This mantra is an affirmation that identifies individual awareness with universal existence. With each meditation feel your mind body and spirit open just a little more. Each time your mind wanders come back by repeating this mantra and hold the meaning behind it – I am. Simply meditate for 20 minutes.
