… from the earth. Letting go is not always easy. No matter in what respect. But sometimes you have to let go in order to find yourself anew.
Letting go physically (3 to 5 minutes)
- Choose a relaxed sitting position and close your eyes. Your feet are in contact with the floor, your arms and hands are resting on the back of the chair or are folded loosely in front of your stomach.
- Focus your attention on your body. Your arms, legs, pelvis, abdomen, breathing, back, shoulders, neck, head and forehead. Walk through all the passages attentively.
- Can you feel the tension? Are there places in your body where you feel strain? Realize that you don’t need to exert yourself while sitting. Allow the effort to fade away where you feel it. After a while, you should be sitting without any effort at all.
Tip: If you practise letting go physically for a few minutes at a time throughout the day, you will also become better at letting go mentally over time.
