Meditate in Nature’s Elements This Summer

Meditate in Natures Elements This Summer
The sounds and elements of nature can be so healing.

Whether it’s the sea or mountain, desert or forest, nature’s sensual elements can help put your mind at ease and become an integral part of your self-healing practice. This summer, be sure to take advantage of the great outdoors and enjoy some self-healing and nature meditations using the beautiful environments around you.

Below are 4 restorative nature meditations to help open your chakras, improve the flow of energy in your body, and refresh your mind. For these meditations, first find a quiet space and make your body comfortable.

  1. In the Forest
    Breathing in and out deeply, let the pure, fresh oxygen of the trees in the deep, vast forest fill your lungs. Feel the air rushing into every cell of your body. Imagine this air expanding your diaphragm and opening your heart chakra. Let its gentle pressure clear any emotional blockages you may be feeling in your chest.

  2. By Streaming Water
    When you are by a stream or river, listen to the clearing sounds of moving water. Watch the colors and shapes of the stream as the water moves over stone, sand, and wood. Imagine that the water energy enters through the top of your head and fills your entire body. Cleansing, cooling and massaging your neck, shoulders, pouring down your torso and into your legs and toes. Imagine that this flowing water is clearing your stress and washing away stagnant emotions.

  3. Talk to a Tree
    Find a tree you feel especially drawn to and sit or stand against it. Feel the tree with your hands and notice any movement of its branches or leaves, or even the small creatures that may be moving across it. Listen for sounds of birds, insects or wind. Feel the tree through the palms of your hand. Communicate with this tree through all your senses.

  4. Sounds of Wildlife
    Sit by the edge of a pond, meadow or creek and listen closely for the subtle sounds coming from the living creatures surrounding you. Close your eyes and focus on their sounds. Listen, more and more closely for 2-3 minutes. Soon, all your thoughts will fall away and your head and heart will resonate with the vibrations of life and creativity.

If you don't have time to get away this summer, bring the mountains (or rivers or oceans or lakes) to you! When you can't be out in nature, try a sound meditation course or download our meditation app, Brain Recharge, to access healing sounds of nature straight from your phone. All you need is your imagination to visualize and receive the benefits of the natural world.

Have a happy summer and enjoy the rejuvenating energies of nature while connecting more to yourself and the Earth!

That's a great idea! When we are with Nature, we are naturally meditative. We become like a child. We are happy, peaceful, excited, blissful and free all at the same time. Meditation in Nature is the dream of every Nature & Meditation lover!
