Why do the Inner Smile Meditation?
The inner smile is a meditation taught by the Universal Healing Tao System, more on that below. This meditation is a wonderful way to check in with yourself, clear negative, stuck emotions and nourishes your organs.
As someone who meditates daily and has done for years the benefits from something so simple is profound.
“Some research suggests that practising meditation may reduce blood pressure, symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression, and insomnia.” ~ nccih.nih.gov
Taking the time for self-care practices like meditation can alter your life in the most positive way! It not only offers your brain to create new pathways but also helps to calm down your nervous system.
I dare you to try it for a month once a day and I know you will feel differently about life and its stressors.
How to do Inner Smile Meditation?
Follow these steps or get my guided smiling meditation.
In the morning and before going to bed and you will have a clear happy mind in no time. I recommend trying to do it at least 3 times a week.
1. Sit straight and feel relaxed
The first step is to make sure you are in a comfortable peaceful place where nobody else is going to interrupt you. Sit in a position where your back is in an upright position and you feel in control of your neck and head. Place your hands on each lap, close your eyes and relax.
2. Inhale and exhale
Now you can just breathe and notice your breath as it goes in and out. Inhale deeply while noticing your abdomen rising and then exhale slowly making a mental note that you are letting go of the things that are bothering you.
You can breathe in the meditation however you want as long as notice your breath and use it to bring in the positive and let go of the negative.
3. Placing your tongue right
While you are concentrating on your breathing, also place your tongue on the roof of your mouth close to your upper teeth. This will allow your energy to flow more circular around your body.
Let the corners of your mouth lift and feel the joy in smiling, you can even look upwards for a bit with your eyes closed as this always makes me happy.
Smiling is a sensation natural sensation and you can even think of puppies, loved ones or just how much love you have for yourself.
5. Concentrate on the Third eye centre
An important step, be attentive and concentrate while you move your golden ball of smiling energy to the space between your eyes which you keep coming back to and growing.
7. Storing the energy
Once finished I guide you in the mediation to focus all the energy you’ve created in the tan tien or navel area. Imagine it spiralling here, the chi being stored in a warm and secure space for you to use whenever you want. Also, release the tip of your tongue when you think you have achieved the purpose of this meditation and all the energy is back safely in the navel area.
