RELAX... LET GO. Releasing Areas of Habitual Tension
Many of the areas where we physically tense up become ingrained, a habitual pattern that we often are no longer even aware of. Whether it's the shoulders, neck, jaw, hands, belly, or buttocks area, we can find ourselves 'holding on' whenever something stressful crosses our mind. And the more often we do this, the more that particular area remains in a state of contraction.
I would like to offer you a mantra and a little meditation practice to bring more awareness and therefore some relief to these areas of stress and tension.
(Here is a written version and below please find an audio of the meditation as well.)
First begin by taking three deep breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth, sighing the exhale completely out to the bottom of the breath. When complete, come back to a natural breath and bring your attention to an area of the body where you may habitually find yourself holding on. As you breathe with full awareness, repeat the mantra 'Relax' on the inhale and 'Let Go' the exhale, picturing a soothing waterfall of cooling energy washing through this area, cleansing and clearing any constriction. Repeat this for several breaths, each time sensing more and more tension leaving this part of the body, replaced with a sense of peace, softness and ease.
These areas where we hold on without even being aware of it become like a memory pattern in our physical structure. In order for us to release them, it's important to come back to this breath pattern several times a day, thereby instilling a new pattern that is healthy rather than constricting.
Wishing you freedom and complete well-being in every area of your life.

I’ve come to meditation for the very first time in my 70’s. With Maureen guiding us into deep relaxation, it comes fairly easily, with a wonderful feeling of peace and calm. Very, very good for any of us with a hectic “normal” life, reminding us of what is possible. - M.S.
Maureen’s relaxation techniques and her provision of a meaningful meditation Mantra makes for a deep and enjoyable meditation experience. I appreciate the chance to attend only to myself and to only recognize the external world but then let it go. - L.S.
