This grounding, calming meditation (below in the linked video) is meant to hold you steady so that when your thoughts and emotions and are in a spiral of depression, stress, anxiety, overthinking–you can dig deep into the solid Rock that is beneath your feet.
This meditation is part of the Year of Healing I’m doing on my blog, with March 2017 being the month where I’m talking about Mental Healing and recovering from depression, anxiety, etc.
In this meditation, we focus on a grounding breath that helps us calm our frantic minds. We also focus on the verse:
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. [Psalm 18:2 NIV]
This meditation is a great one to come back to every day if you are truly feeling like you are too much in your head–deep stress, anxiety, confusion, depression, etc. Sometimes, it’s very appropriate to focus downward to that steady place that is the earth when we feel unstable, flighty, and disconnected. I believe that focusing on the rock beneath us can be a beautiful metaphor for focusing on God, rooting down into God, who holds us steady no matter the storms of life.
