Today I took a Mantra Meditation Walk to improve the state of my mental health. Specificly, to alleviate a restles, unsettled energy, stuck in the center of my belly. A mantra is a repeated word or sound to deepen concentration during meditation.
Throughout my walk, I inhaled, then exhaled as I spoke the word “moo-oo-ve” : a direction to the restless stomach energy that I was experiencing. The sound “oo”, (as in the word move) is aligned to the energy of the sacral(or belly) chakra. Although this may not be a widely used tool, I find it extremely effective in promoting a sense of well being and enhancing my mental health.(especiially when combined with walking)
After a couple of miles invoking blocked stomach energy to “moo-oo-ve” , I felt belly energy, as well as my mental health, restored.
Although this may seem like an unusual strategy, sound and vibration, serve as good instruments in alleviating stagnant energy and improving mental health. An added benefit is, it’s a great tool to practice feeling more comfortable being seen/heard in your Truth. Who says you have to do manage emotions like everyone else? Get creative! Have fun with it! Do you:-)
Whether you practice using chanting and mantras in a concrete jungle, in the woods or on a treadmill, I assure you, they are extremely effective in moving stuck energy.
