You are a powerful goddess fully responsible and capable of everything in your life!! Make yourself proud, prove yourself right, and love yourself always!
Building Willpower and Mind Strength Active Meditation. Benefits include but are not limited to:
- Increased willpower
- Increased confidence
- Increased mental fortitude
- Increased lung capacity
- Strengthened nervous system
- Toned arms
Prep Step 1:
Select an empowering song or songs that will have you feeling fully capable of being able to do anything!! (have them set and ready to be 1, 3, 5, 7, or 11 minutes on a playlist)
Prep Step 2:
Sit comfortably with your legs crossed or in rock pose (sitting on your heels).
Prep Step 3:
Extend both arms out parallel to the ground out to the sides. The elbows and wrists straight with fingers extended (looking like a goddess bird ready for flight). There is a variation to the hand position where the thumb tip touches the base of the pinkie while the 4 fingers remain extended (provides an additional challenge).
Prep Step 4:
Close your eyes and concentrate on your third eye point, located between your eyebrows. If you have trouble with that or an overwhelming amount of thoughts have your eyes slightly opened and stare down to the tip of your nose.
Prep Step 5:
“Breath of fire” if you are unfamiliar the breath of fire is fast-paced equal inhale and exhale, that is best learned by sticking out your tongue and panting like a dog. Once you grasp the pumping movement in the stomach please put your tongue back in and close your mouth and perform through your nose. IF the breath of fire is not working for you then simply inhale as the arms go up and exhale as the arms go down.
Start playlist and begin by elegantly flapping your goddess arms up six inches from parallel and then down six inches from parallel, so total range is 12 inches to the rate of your breath. I noticed that the faster you go the easier it is, try it out for yourself.
In general, this exercise is done for 1, 3, 5, 7 or 11 minutes. You can work your way up to increased time or jump right into 11 minutes! I just attempted 11 and wow…my arms are weak and or there’s a reason I’m going this for my willpower..I’m starting at 3 minutes a day.. the discomfort kicks in for me before 30 seconds. 😉
Once complete, take a deep breath in through your nose, hold as you stretch your arms up and tighten/squeeze your lower internal organs in “apply root lock” and shoot your energy up your spine. Release. Repeat two more times for a total of three times.
Since you are doing this active mediation to build WILLPOWER it is essential to push through the discomfort. However, do not push yourself beyond discomfort and into pain!! Yes, you want to build willpower but be careful and you do not want to injure yourself.
Remind yourself what you will be able to accomplish with your willpower and how sleek and toned your arms are going to be.
WILLPOWER is like a muscle, meaning when your shoulders hurt that is YOU building your WILLPOWER MUSCLE! I have noticed with this and all exercises that when I smile and keep myself with a joyful mind the exercise is much much easier and enjoyable. Try it both ways and see the difference for yourself..It is kind of like all of life…all in your perception. 😉
Have a blissful and empowering day!
