Description     More info

To practice meditation with a candle, or burning flame, begin by gradually quieting your breath. When you feel that its state is more relaxed, stare at the object and try to see it in its entirety, without elaborating any kind of thought, judgment or interpretation. If any thought comes to mind, just let it pass. Refocus on the object. Today you will put your attention on the flame, in its movement, color, temperature, aroma. A really rewarding exercise.

Today you will need something very important, a candle

If you don't have the opportunity to use one you can look at the screen and perform the exercise with the one you will see on it

Okay, I want you to light your candle and put it in front of you

Sit comfortably, quietly and unhurriedly

I want you to put all your attention on the candle today

Just breathe relaxed and contemplate the flame

I want you to concentrate on it totally, on its colors, on its size, in the little fuse, their movements, its vibrations, observe if it flickers, the light it gives, the texture of the wax that surrounds it

Bring your face a little bit closer and watch if it responds to your breath with its movement

Now, bring your hands closer and feel its temperature

Contemplate the flame for a few seconds without thinking about anything, just focus on it

This is a simple but powerful mindfulness and attention to the present moment exercise that will enable you to This is a simple but powerful mindfulness exercise that will allow you to go deeper into this wonderful lifestyle

When you feel that you away from the now, it is an effective way to return to it in a relaxed and contemplative way

Practice it often, increasing the time of duration and you will notice its great benefits

This is all for today

Thank you very much for following me this far, more tomorrow

Happy present moment, see you soon
