Mental Health Strategy:Mantra Meditation Walk

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.

  A meditative 
mantra walk 
On a street
In ill repair,
Construction 
everywhere.
intentions,
to unclog, dissolve
restless, unsettled, 
sacral chakra energy.
“Moo-oo-oo-ve”
I instruct fearful feelings.
“Moo-oo-oo-ve”
I direct  hindered desire,
(Which is wedged
 between old 
and new versions of self.)
I welcome the hum
of trucks and power tools. 
along this torn up concrete jungle,
where sound is drowning out
as well as harmonizing with,
my “Moo-oo-ve” mantra.
Booming motors ,
clamoring of construction…
Motor cycle zooming through
muting my “Moo-oo-ve” mantra..
Curiosity, tags along with presence.
I wonder if workers are
judging my unusual strategy
to boost my mental health?
No matter. I carry on,
walking many miles(ok, 3)
Embodying the vibration
Of “Moo-oo-ve” mantra.
And so it is
An opening,a softening 
in my sacral energy.
Sooner or later, ease returns.
