Sahasrara chakra meditation– focusing on the crown of the head, imagine light and the quality openness and expansion. Breathing into the chakra from all directions. On your exhale, extend energy lines to earth and sky. Continue. You may add the mantra Om
Expanding Awareness– start focusing on your breath. Shift your attention from the breath to your awareness of the breath. Allow your awareness to expand outward. With each exhalation, feel that your awareness expands more and more. Rest in the spaciousness of your expanded awareness.
The watcher meditation– focus your attention on the space inside your mind. The mind is like the sky with the thoughts moving like clouds inside. You are watching the thinking. You are not the thinker. Observe the thought clouds as they move through the sky of your awareness. Make note of the thoughts as they arise for further investigation.
