Within you is a space that is always calm and at peace. This space is often referred to as your "calm center". Being centered means remaining in your calm center amidst the busyness of everyday life. Being centered means not allowing your inner light to be overshadowed by stressful circumstances or negative thoughts and emotions.
When you are centered, you are in a state of clarity, focus, peace, and balance. When you are not centered, you are unclear, unfocussed, stressed, and off balance.
A good centering technique will require only minimal attention, allowing you to keep some of your attention on the activity at hand. Here are some very easy, effective centering techniques.
When you are feeling stressed and scattered, take several slow breaths. With each in-breath, imagine you are pulling all of your scattered energy and attention back to your inner self -- your calm center.
This centering technique combines breath awareness with a "reminder mantra." It is especially helpful when you are feeling tense, or when you are fixating on a stressful situation, negative thought or emotion. The mantra we will use is "let go."
As you inhale, silently say, "let."
As you exhale, say "go," while letting go of all that is stressing you.
Imagine a bright sun filling your heart chakra -- the calm, subtle energy field that fills your chest area. Imagine that sun gently emanating peace throughout your entire being.
