Day 15 Visualising Breathing
02 Mar 2021
We’ve taken a break from talking about mindfulness techniques for several days. Let’s go back to one today.
The technique we will talk about today is called Breathing Visualisation. This breathing technique is an extension from the 6-3-8 breathing we talked about in Day 2. It’s great for getting your mind into a peaceful state, it can be used to getting into sleep and the moments before meditation.
Try this way:
Close your eyes gently and take a long and calm breath through your nostrils.
As you breathe in, visualise the gush of air as a stream of energy going up to the very top of your head. (I like to visualise the energy as a stream of rainbow colored sparkles, it makes me smile. You can choose to visualise the energy in which ever form that creates a pleasant feeling for you).
Pause for a slight moment.
Breathe out slowly and visualise the energy traveling all the way down your spine.
Repeat until you are at a comfortable state falling asleep or ready to meditate.
I choose this breathing g technique when I feel like I need a little cheering up sometimes as rainbow sparkles make me super happy (yes, unicorn sparkles). I hope this mindfulness technique brings you some positivity too.
