How To Practice a New Year’s Meditation For Clarity

As 2o16 draws to a close, we turn our attention to the new year. Are you looking to start a daily meditation practice? Make it your resolution! Gain clarity and focus with a Bastika meditation that will help you take on new challenges.

-Sit on your heels, knees bent, eyes closed

-Loosely grip your hands near your shoulders in a “W” formation

-Inhale hands up, exhale through the nose as you bring your hands back beside your shoulders

-Repeat for 30 seconds, three times

-Sit in silence and pay attention to the sensations in your body

Release judgments of yourself, don’t take yourself so seriously, and enjoy each moment! This practice will raise your vibration for your best year yet.
