What does it mean to take time out to renew ourselves? Many of us don't prioritise our own self-care; therefore, we never really take time to unplug, reconnect and renew. Life's pressure and busy pace make it easy to get stuck in old habits and repetitive routines. These cycles make it hard to break emotional triggers, and the egos need to rehash past mistakes, regrets and hurts.
When faced with uncertainty, fears and challenges, we often cling to our old habits and ways of doing things. However, when we nurture our mind, body and spirit, we also renew ourselves – which in time dissolves inner turmoil and negative patterns – creating space for peace, love, light, new ideas and ways of being to flow into us.
When we are open to our own self-healing, we develop a more positive way of experiencing our being and our life, which gives us the ability to deal with challenges in a more self-loving and kind manner. Taking time out to renew our whole being connects us to self-awareness. And Self-awareness brings positive transformation. And transformation brings healing.
Prioritising self-care and self-renewal will make us feel more joyful, loving, energetic and light. It will bring us back to the way nature always intended for us to feel. Self-renewal will energise and expand our minds, bring balance and harmony to our emotions and bring about a deep sense of peace and wellbeing to our whole being.
The goal of today's meditation experience is to renew your mind, body and spirit by reconnecting with your breath, body and sense of whole being.
Find yourself a quiet space where you will not be disturbed for 15 minutes or so. Find somewhere that is easy to relax – avoiding loud noises, strong smells, bright lights and so forth.
Sit or lay quietly. The most important thing is to be comfortable. Straighten your spine and uncross your legs. If comfortable – palms facing upwards.

Close your eyes. For the next minute or so, just observe your breath. Breathe naturally. Don't overthink it or try to change anything.
Observe the breath as it comes in and as it leaves the body; be aware of each inhale and exhale. Notice the sensations you feel as the breath passes through your nose and throat.
Follow the breath in and out of the body. Notice the rise and fall of the chest and belly with each cycle of breath.
Let the breath slow you down.
You may even like to slow down your breath by inhaling slowly to the count of 4 and pausing for the count of two, then exhaling to the count of four.
By slowing down your breath, you will stimulate the relaxation nerve in your body - inviting calmness to fill the body.
Feel your heart rate begin to slow down.
With each breath, invite stillness.
See if you can become more deeply anchored to the present moment with each breath.
When you feel your mind drift and become distracted with thoughts (which is natural), redirect your attention to your breath.
Allow the breath to soften your body and mind.
Allow yourself to fall into a deeper state of relaxation.
On your next inhale, have an appreciation for your body and this moment of stillness and renewal.
Exhale – let go of any heaviness within.
With each breath, invite more space into the body.
With each exhale, let go a little more.
Breathing in, visualise the oxygen feeding, fueling and nourishing every cell in your body.
With each breath, the cells become plumper, more alert, more healthy.
At the level of your body's cells – life is perfect.
Inhaling deeply, invite the oxygen within. Allow the cells in your body to heal and renew with total trust and self-acceptance.
Exhaling completely – feel yourself become more light and free within.
Every cell in your body is renewing and healing,
Inhaling deeply, connecting with your breath, your cells, your body and your whole being.
When we reconnect with our body, we also connect with its wellbeing and thrive in mind, body, and spirit.
Take a moment to appreciate what your entire body does for you to survive and thrive.
Breathe in awareness and appreciation for your body
Breathe in awareness and appreciation for your mind
Breathe in awareness and appreciation for your spirit
Breathe in awareness and love for your whole being
Settle into this ocean of self-awareness and appreciation for all that you are and for all that is
Find peace in this moment.
Find joy in your body.
Find love and appreciation for your whole entire body.
Breathing in deeply
Seed your heart with peace, joy, trust, gratitude, and love.
Trust in your body's ability to heal itself.
Relax and surrender into the ocean of self-awareness.
Gently remind yourself that you hold the key to your own healing and happiness.
Know deep within that everything you desire is found within.
Become connected and at one with your mind, body and spirit.
Rest in your body. Rest in awareness. Rest in being. Rest in existence.
Rest in your whole being.
Bring your awareness to your breath.
Bring your awareness to sounds that surround you.
Bring your attention to the space that surrounds you.
Bring your awareness back to the room.
Gently wiggle your fingers, wiggle your toes.
You may want to take a slight stretch by raising your arms above your head.
In your own time, slowly open your eyes.
