Chakra Journal Challenge – Week 6 – Throat Chakra

This week is the throat chakra and a slightly different way to achieve connection. Using bee breath or “Bhramari”. I can remember doing this yoga technique years ago and it always made me dizzy. Looking forward to seeing how well I can do it nowadays. Enjoy!

“Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.”
― Barbara De Angelis

How to do Tonglen Meditation – a Beginner’s Guide

Before I understood what it was, or could even sit in quiet meditation for long, this is a meditation I did for years. Tonglen is Tibetan for ‘giving and receiving’. I’ve always felt a deep connection to both His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people. Life is fascinating.

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” 
~ Charles Dickens

At times it is easy to feel small and insignificant – unable to help when all we feel in our hearts is an urge to try. When those we know are suffering, or when there is a catastrophe in another part of the world we might wonder what can be done.

There is something we can do. Meditate!

I first started practicing this meditation as a small girl – maybe three or four years of age.  No one taught me.  I just seemed to know what to do.  My baby sister was fidgeting and restless one night, tossing and turning in the bed beside mine as her teeth came through. I breathed in her fever and distress with every in-breath, and with every out-breath I imagined my breath covering her…
