Unfurl...a meditation

Find a spot where you can sit comfortably and undisturbed for a few minutes. Take a seat. Let's meditate.

We will do this with our eyes open. Our breath will be conscious and unhurried. Slowly in. Slower out. We will take out time. Time will not matter, but it will make a difference. We will be actively using our hands. When we open them, we will keep them relaxed. We will not straighten our fingers.

Let's begin.

Tighten your fists. Look at your hands as you hold your two fists tightly. Breathe in, deeply.

As you breathe out, slowly open your hands. Watch them open.

Breathe in. Hold your fists tightly. This is tension.

Breathe out. Slowly open your hands. Release the tension.

Breathe in. Make your fists. This is worry.

Breathe out. Slowly let go of the fists. Let go of worry.

Breathe in. Watch your fists. The more you tighten, the more they tremble. This is judgment.

Breathe out, slowly. Loosen your grip, loosen your thoughts.

Breathe in. Make your fists. Make them tight. This is attachment.

Breathe out. Slowly open your hands to receive.

Breathe in. Tighten your fists around your circumstances. You are tired.

Breathe out, slowly. Watch your hands relax. Focus on the now.

Breathe in. Watch your fists tightly bound around uncertainty. This is anxiety.

Breathe out. Slowly. Ease your hands open. All will be well.

Breathe in. Make a very tight fist. This one hurts. This is fear.

Breathe out. Slowly let your hand open to love.

Leave your hand open, unfurled. Breathe in.

Breathe out. Feel the difference.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

Release. Unfurl. Let it be.
