Restorative Breathing (part 2)
Stress tends to build up over time. When we don't process or release our anxiety, our pain, our trauma, it can affect our health - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. In today's meditation, we use the breath to restore ourselves. This podcast is made possible by our subscribers on Patreon. Join our community at Patreon.com/theMeditationPodcast...

Destressing the Body
For many of us, daily life has changed dramatically. We are experiencing uncertainty, conflict, anxiety, stress, and a complete disruption of our social routines. This impacts our bodies in the form of stress, tension, and conflict within ourselves. In today's meditation, we destress the body, creating waves of cleansing energy to release the inner conflict that may be impeding our full experience of life.

Stay Inside
We are experiencing unprecedented times. How can we use this time to expand our awareness, evolve our compassion and kindness, and discern through our confusion? The world within us is truly a healer, a teacher, an infinite realm that belongs only to us. In today's meditation, we practice the mindful art of going within, and "staying inside".

Brave New World
My friend Daniel Pohnke died in May. He made a strong impact on my life, during a difficult time. Daniel also helped us get the podcast back on its feet, at a time when we had almost given up on it. Daniel was a world traveler, meditator, songwriter, musician, educator, facilitator, light worker, and coach. His enthusiasm for life was infectious. We release this episode of The Meditation Podcast in honor of Daniel, and in support of his wife and son. Daniel led me through th...

Love Inside Out
It is our human nature to seek love. We want to be seen, encouraged, celebrated. But the love that we receive from others is limited by our capacity to love ourselves. When we begin to accept, encourage, and celebrate ourselves, we become better able to give and receive those same feelings. In today's meditation, we practice the self-generated, healing light of unconditional love. The Meditation Podcast is made possible with great thanks to o...

Three-part Breath (Dirga Pranayama)
The Three-part breath is a simple and ancient technique for reducing stress, anxiety, and emotional struggles. Traditionally it is used to regulate life energy, and to clear imbalances in the body mind and spirit. In yoga practices, it is also known as Dirga Pranayama, or Dirga Swasam Pranayama, or rebirthing. In today's meditation, we practice the three-part full breath.

Releasing Discomfort Through Intention
Often the areas of greatest discomfort in our bodies are the areas that require the most attention. Our discomfort may be telling us to slow down, not to worry. It may hold trauma from old injuries, emotional wounds, or regret. One way to release our discomfort, whether physical or emotional, is to simply breathe into it. In today's meditation, we breathe into our discomfort. We give it our attention, our focus, and our breath. Finally, we invite ourselves to let it go. ...

Release Vibration
Through meditation, we release tension and focus our minds inward. Through daily practice, we may face opportunities for deeper release, such as chronic tension or old injuries. When we experience fidgeting, difficulty focusing, difficult self-observations, areas of chronic pain or tension, etc., this may be a sign that we are ready for a deeper release. In today's meditation, we use a simple, self-generated vibration to help realign our subtle energy and to release any area...

Finding Your True Purpose
When we meet someone who has 'found their purpose', what qualities do we notice? Do they seem to have mastered their craft or occupation? Do they seem joyful and content in their day to day lives? How do we find -- and live in -- our true purpose? Is it finding the right job, the right career? Is it becoming really 'good' at something? Or is it as simple as learning to remain present? In today's meditation, we attune ourselves to our deepest thoughts, needs, and desires to f...

Opening the Heart
We all have the capacity to experience love, through both giving and receiving. But over time past hurts and mistrusts can close our hearts to fully experiencing love. We may carry a fear of being hurt again. In turn, we become selective in how much love we give, and how much love we allow ourselves to receive from others. Restricting our hearts in this way stifles our spiritual growth — and it can even affect the body, including the heart itself. In this meditation, we lear...

Breathing Through the Body
As we journey through our lives, our bodies experience many forms of stress -- including danger, grief, trauma, anger, and physical injury. When we don't process or release stress it remains inside our bodies, causing tension and restricted breath. Restricted breath in turn deprives the body and blood of oxygen, which can lead to hypertension, weight fluctuation, and all sorts of dis-ease. In today's meditation, we use our own breathing to cleanse our physical and emotional ...

Stress Relief
We take on stress in many ways. Stress normally originates in a traumatic event or life-death situation. However, simple day-to-day events can also create stress, by triggering memories of trauma and fear. In today's meditation, we build our capacity to process and release stress. This meditation uses breath work and stillness, to increase awareness of our stress, its sources, and how to let it go. The Meditation Podcast is made possible with...

Releasing Destructive Habits
We are spiritual beings, going through a human experience on this earth. Through this experience, we develop habits that may be detrimental to our spiritual, mental and physical well-being. Eventually, destructive habits become a normal part of our everyday, and we can lose sight of their long term effects. Examples of destructive habits include alcohol or drug abuse, compulsive eating, nail-biting, self mutilation, belligerence, or rage. We are not interested in judging 'go...

Staying Calm in the Storm
Life often confronts us with turmoil, setbacks, bad news, or disappointments. This can occur in world events, our personal relationships, our home, and our careers. It is a natural response to feel and express anger, sadness, or fear. However, when these emotions overwhelm us we may find ourselves thrown off-balance, losing our ability to function or communicate effectively. In today's meditation, we practice staying calm in the middle of a storm. We learn how to express emo...

Chi Energy Bath
Do you ever just feel great? Balanced, confident, strong, yet relaxed? What if there was a way to cultivate feeling great? To massage our body, mind, and spirit? Through a simple visualization exercise? In today's meditation we cultivate our internal energy for physical healing, mental clarity, and emotional resolution. Based on ancient Chinese practices of qigong energy work, we build up our chi, then move it in a gentle cycle through our bodies. This creates a subtle, gent...

Recharge in Your Sacred Space
We all need to reset regularly. When we become tired, uninspired, exhausted, or depressed, this may be a symptom of our need to restore ourselves, to recharge our drained energy. In today's meditation, we visit our Sacred Space to restore our body, mind, spirit, inspiration, and energy. By simply resting, while in a high vibrational state, we restore our ability to work efficiently, to rest fully, to function in a chaotic world, and to experience our daily lives with full pr...

Recognizing Prosperity
As we start the New Year, many of us seek wealth or prosperity: a raise, a new car, a bigger house. Our goals reflect the desire for more money, more things. However, when we seek material prosperity, it's easy to miss the prosperity we already have — such as our health, our friendships, and family. In today's meditation, we recognize our present prosperity in areas including — but not limited to — our financial and physical wealth. By acknowledging our current prosperity, w...

Resolving Anger
Our anger has many sources. Trauma, grief, frustration, and shame can all slowly reshape themselves into anger. When unresolved, these complex emotions can become stuck in our minds and bodies, leaving us feeling bitter, ungrateful, unhappy, and sick. In today's meditation, we address and resolve our anger. Using a timed breathing technique, we shake loose emotions that have become stuck in our bodies, creating space for more useful, creative energy. ...
