michele fife meditation

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) – Start seated with legs crossed or in a chair resting the backs of the hands on your knees or thighs. Keep the spine elongated and shoulders relaxed, chin can be slightly tucked. Establish a slow and steady breathing pattern letting the mind become clear by bringing focus to the breath.

Now use the silent meditation mantra- sa ta na ma, while touching each finger to the thumb.

Use this pattern –

  • Press the index finger + thumb for SA
  • Press the middle finger + thumb for TA
  • Press the ring finger + thumb for NA
  • Press the little finger + thumb for MA

This meditation can be done vocally or mentally so if you have trouble focusing at first try repeating the mantra aloud and then in a whisper and then silent meditation.

The benefits of this meditation are:

  • Increases intuitive abilities and mental clarity.
  • Clears the mind of negative emotions and impressions.
  • Builds concentration and mental focus.
  • Brings a sense of peace and tranquility.
  • Increases self awareness.
