The Power of a Body Scan Meditation
Many of my meditations are heart-centered with a focus on the spiritual self, but this meditation is all about the physical part of you. The spiritual self and the physical self can come together in a beautiful dance when we become aware of these different parts of us and bring love and relaxation into every part of our being. Yin and yang come together, forming a balanced unity.
A body scan meditation is a very effective way to calm down a busy mind is to move your awareness into your body. In a body scan meditation, you travel through your body with your awareness, which makes you very conscious and aware of your physical self and how your body feels – which is to say, how you feel. And once you have this deep awareness, you can release any tensions that you have been holding on to subconsciously. This relaxation then spreads throughout your body and it helps you to relax your mind and your emotional body too.

Close your eyes and breathe out any tension. Breathe deeply into your belly and loosen any restrictive clothing.
Breathe slowly and deeply for a few moments.
Move your attention to your feet and your toes. Take a deep breath and send the oxygen all the way down to your feet. Feel any tension in your soles, heels, toes, arches or ankles and just let that tension go now. Release now with one more deep breath.
Move your attention to your calves and chins. Take a deep breath and send the oxygen all the way down to your calves and chins. Feel any tension around that area and let that tension go. Release and take one more deep breath.
Move your attention to your knees. They work hard for you all day long. Take a deep breath and send the oxygen all the way down to your knees. Send them some gratitude too. Feel any tension around that area and let that tension go. Release and take one more deep breath.
