Advent Week 2 Meditation Audio and Script

In this second week of Advent, let’s take the time to prepare our minds and souls and to make room for His presence. Take five minutes of your day to stand in his awareness and love. This is a season when we may get lost and anxious amidst Christmas gift shopping, but have you stopped to meditate on the gifts God has given you? These are the gifts that truly matter because they tell you your mission in this world. 

 

 

 

 

Take a seat somewhere comfortable. This could be a yoga mat. If you are on a yoga mat get into a comfortable cross legged position. Otherwise sit with both feet on the ground. Gently close your eyes. Draw the crown of your head towards the heavens as you draw your shoulder back and down. Place your hands on your thighs with your palms facing up.

Start deepening your breath to help you connect to the Holy Spirit. On the day of the Pentecost, the Holy spirit came from heaven like a rushing wind. So, Let the Holy Spirit fill you with each breath. Visualize the Spirit filling you with joy, kindness, peace, and grace. Visualize a beautiful golden light overtaking you with each breath.

As you are doing this, exhale the tension from your body

Feel completely Relaxed.

Bring the breath to your chest, then upper belly, then lower belly.

Now let the air go from the lower belly, upper belly, and finally the chest.

Continue this three part breath by bringing the breath to your chest, then upper belly, then lower belly. Now letting the air go from the lower belly, upper belly, and finally the chest.

God has gifted each of us with unique talents and spiritual gifts. Let us embrace all that beauty and use those to help others and improve our world. Take a deep breath and embrace this verse:

First Peter 4: 10 says: "each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms".

Now let a deep breath out. 

What are some of the gifts God has given you? What are you good at? What do you excel at?

Take in His grace as you meditate on your gifts and take 5 deep breaths.

One more time, Take another deep breath and embrace this verse one more time:

First Peter 4: 10 says: "each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms".

Now take some time to meditate on how you are currently using your gifts. What have you been doing with what you excel at? 

 

Take in His grace as you meditate on your gifts and take 5 deep breaths.

 

One more time, Take another deep breath and embrace this verse one last time:

First Peter 4: 10 says: "each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms".

ased on the gifts you have been given meditate on what is God's mission for your life. What can you do to better explore those gifts and accomplish your mission?

Take in His grace as you meditate on your gifts and take 5 deep breaths

Everyone has a gift. Everyone is unique. Embrace your God given uniqueness, your gifts. In this Christmas season, rather than buying material gifts, be a gift to the world. Give of yourself to others. Build others up, make someone happy, embrace someone, help someone. 

As you rest in His grace for a few last breaths I want you to inhale His Grace

Exhale self doubt

Inhale His Grace

Exhale self doubt

Inhale His Grace

Exhale self doubt

Inhale His Grace

Exhale self doubt

Now open your eyes slowly and feel your feet on the ground. Let's Thank God for this day and to Him be the Glory of your gifts and actions today! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Holy Yoga for Christmas

As we approach the celebration of our Savior's birth we should start thinking about our rebirth in Christ. Today's class focuses on 2 Corinthians 5:17: "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things passed away; behold, all things become new".  

I invite you to meditate on this scripture and ask yourself:

Who are you in Christ?

Who is the new you with Christ? 

The bible says, in Galatians 5:22-23 that in the Spirit,

  • You are love
  • You are joy
  • You are peace
  • You are forbearance
  • You are kindness
  • You are goodness
  • You are faithfulness
  • You are gentleness
  • You are self-control

During today's class please bring your thoughts to these questions and to what we become in Christ. Take the time to meditate on areas you may need improvement and thank God for what you have become in the Spirit.

Have a blessed class and Merry Christmas!
