Bone marrow meditation

Here is my bone marrow meditation that I invented last night.  It was rather odd to write and probably equally odd to read, but I thought I’d try to share it.  Perhaps it was inspired by the potential for camping this Memorial Day weekend? Please let me out of here so that I can spend a night at the campground!

Take three deep, cleansing breaths.

Draw your attention to your feet.

Wiggle your toes.  Flex your feet. 

Draw your attention to the bones in your feet.  Those bones are filled with cells.  Imagine the cells are gray coals.  Inhale deeply, and exhale your breath onto the coals.  Continue breathing on the coals until they get red hot. 

Draw your attention to your legs.  Big, strong bones in your legs.  Breathe on the coals. 

Continue to breathe on the coals in every bone in your body until they are all red hot.  

Imagine this heat nourishing your bone marrow, feeding the cells for many cycles of growth.

    1. Thank you, Joanne! It's pretty fun for me. :)

  2. Hybrid imagery and body scan. Are you sure you aren't a psychologist?
