Welcome, today we’re going to play around with a breath visualization technique.
These techniques are designed to help you connect and focus on your breath. You can use them in combination with a meditation or mindfulness practice, or all on their own.
The goal here is to use these visualizations as tools to help you build up your muscle of concentration.
Your mind will wander during these exercises, and that’s kind of the point.
Whenever you notice your mind wandering, gently shift it back to the visualization. Every time you do that, it’s kind of like a mental pushup; building up the muscles of concentration and awareness.
In a minute, I will guide us through 3 visualization exercises. Each one will be about 2 minutes long.
All you need to do is sit comfortably, close your eyes, and breathe normally. I highly recommend breathing through the nose if you are able.
Before we begin, I’ll note that some of these might sound a bit silly, and that’s ok. It’s all about finding a technique that works for you.
