Meditation For Daily Life: Sensory Awareness
Here is another stress management relaxation technique from the creator of Intuition Journal
To read the first exercise I posted, please go to: Easy Relaxation Exercise
This is a brief and simple exercise. It can be seamlessly woven into your daily life.
Pay attention to what you are sensing, going through each of your senses.
Notice what you are seeing. Take a moment to notice the colours … then the shapes … focus on a single object … then take a wider perspective … shift between open focus and focusing on one thing
Then move on to what you feel … how does your body feel … your shoulders … sense the shoulder area … roll your shoulders and relax them … notice your breathing … is it flowing or constricted … if it is constricted breathe more deeply and relax … becoming more aware of what you are touching…
And now notice what are you hearing … the sounds … perhaps birds chirping… or music playing … or traffic… the sounds you are making … your breathing … the sounds you make as you are working … pay attention to them for a moment …
If you can taste or smell something … notice that now … notice what you smell … and what you taste … or recently tasted …
Now breathe and relax, remaining aware of your surroundings and your senses … take this awareness with you through the day …
You have paid attention to your senses.
You can do this several times a day, whenever you like. It’s a great way to be more aware. It’s a kind of waking meditation.
There is no need to go into a kind of trance or an inward meditation.
The advantage of this kind of meditation is you can use it at any time, while working, resting, or playing.
Use this meditation to increase your awareness in daily life.
