Welcome, Dear Soul,

“Imagine yourself standing in the heart of a lush forest, surrounded by towering trees, their branches reaching towards the sky. Take a deep breath and feel the crisp, clean air filling your lungs, revitalizing your body and mind.

As you stand in the embrace of the natural, notice the elements that surround you. Feel the solid earth beneath your feet, grounding you and providing a stable foundation, nurturing you with food, medicines, fiber, minerals, water, and so much more.

Sense the gentle kiss of the breeze against your skin, carrying with it the whispers of the wind. Listen to the melodious symphony of bird songs and swaying leaves. Notice the rhythmic beat of your own heart.

Now, turn your attention inward and connect with the essence of your being. Feel the warmth of your own breath as it flows in and out of your body, a constant reminder of the life force that animates you. Since the steady rhythm of your heartbeat echoes the pulse of the earth itself.

In this moment of deep connection, recognize the inherent union between yourself and the natural world. Just as the trees draw nourishment from the earth and the birds soar freely through the sky, you, too, are an integral part of this universal oneness of life.

With each breath, each heartbeat, affirm your unity with all that surrounds you. Let go of the idea of an individual self-suffering or being joyful. We can not suffer alone or be joyful as an individual. 

As you continue to gaze at the sky and the sun, feel the unity within you. Reminding you of the presence of all those elements in you.

Notice if you feel a connection with the universe. Don’t worry if you are still having difficulty establishing the connection. 

The sole purpose of Meditation is to realize the unity of self with the universal Consciousness. This unity is what we call “Yoga.â€

Carry this awareness with you as you return to your daily life. Engrave this thought in your mind once you feel a strong connection with the universe.

May you feel united with the universe.

With love and gratitude!
