This meditation is slightly more difficult as it requires knowledge of the body’s seven chakras.
In The Eight Step Home Cure, Maxwell explains the reason to take the time for this simple, yet vital step well. Find a spot in your home that you rarely (maybe never!) sit in that gives you a view on a room or area that you feel is especially problematic.
More from the book: Problems often loom large but are caused by very specific, small elements.
Think of this as a great diagnostic tool for helping to cure any area of your home that needs attention. Now that you spent a little time meditatively musing about your vision for what your home can (and will!) be, it's the perfect time for you to choose a project that you really want to cross off your list this month.
Keep in mind that the list you created earlier this week is your master roadmap to many worthwhile projects you'll do for your home in the coming year. I hope you are happy with where you are at in your Cure,whether you tackled your kitchen this past weekend or are at a different point in the assignments. Janel Laban is the Executive Editor of Apartment Therapy and has been working here, at the dreamiest of dream jobs, since March 2006. 33 Minimalist Meditation Room Design Ideas - DigsDigs Search for: BEGIN TYPING YOUR SEARCH ABOVE AND PRESS RETURN TO SEARCH. A website devoted to helping others learn about spirit communication and how to communicate with spirits and spirit guides. It came to me as I was meditating this morning, to share with you how to use nature as a meditation. So when you are out in nature, find a nice place to sit that is quiet, close your eyes, put your hands on your lower belly, take a deep relaxed breath and give a good sigh, let out the tension with the exhalation.
The best thing about Nirup's work and the methods she uses is that it's always about YOU - what is YOUR path? You will normally hear of the “7 main chakras” (or sometimes 8 main chakras) referred to when researching Chakras. The body (and beyond) actually has thousands of chakras which are energy centers that allow you exchange energy with the world around you.  Pronounce the “Ch” of this word as you would say “chalk” or “chocolate”. Here is a great Chakra Chart that gives some of the basic characteristics of each of the 7 main Chakras. For example, if you are having physical issues in the area of the Throat chakra, you can ask yourself  ”Am I unable to express my creativity? These energy extensions are how we exchange with others in our environment, and also help make up our own auric field. A chakra is used in yoga and meditation and refers to seven points in the body where nerves and energy meet.

It is quiet, mindful and - as I'm 100% sure you'll be happy to know if you just spent time over the weekend working on your kitchen - doesn't involve any scrubbing or sorting. He writes: Most of us develop flow patterns within our apartments that are so strong that after some time we rarely stray from them.
Once you have done that, focus on whatever part of the room that you feel is the most problematic and imagine removing the "stuff" from that area - furniture, belongings, everything.
Make note of what changes you envision and move forward with some additional clarity about how you truly want your home to be; what you need and what you can move forward without.
This exercise is not intended to make your interior problems disappear, but it will allow you to begin to isolate specific changes that you want to make and steer past the anxiety of feeling a whole room needs to be changed. Repeat as needed in different rooms of your home as you move forward - no need to overdo it tonight, but consider doing this exercise again at any time throughout the Cure process when you are unsure of what to do next to help improve a room, what you might want to add to your outbox or what needs cleaning and repair.
This project choice is just the first step and completing it successfully is key to sticking with the concept of caring for your home moving forward.
Siting in nature, and BEING, not trying to do anything, figure out anything, just BREATHING AND RELAXING into the moment; the feeling and knowing there was is no where to go but this very moment. She was incredibly helpful and provided so much insight into our lives that it is hard to believe we only spoke for an hour. She helped me to get in touch with my own inner truth and make decisions for me instead of for everyone else.
I appreciate your strength and clarity, and giving me the little push I needed to really grow.
Each chakra holds certain qualities like stability, creativity, and love, and is attached to a certain color. You won't need to spend more than 10 minutes or so on today's two assignments, but there is learning here that will definitely help you throughout the rest of the Cure - and the rest of the year. If not for cleaning, we might never set foot in many corners of our own home or see it from any other perspective. Turn off TV, radio, music and your phone - this is a quiet exercise and is most effective with focus and concentration. Now, start rebuilding that area, adding back in only what feels right and looks good in your minds eye.
So, don't feel like you have to do more than one right now - choose wisely and well on which single project (small is ok!) will be good to start with and remember, you'll be plenty busy doing the basics this month, so this is just a cherry on top!
It's a good idea to make a commitment to the whole group on what your goal project is - the more of us that participate fully, the more strength we all have as a group to really get the work done! While there are other ways to do this, meditation can effectively be used as a focused reminder to help keep your vibration high when you are busy thinking about work, kids, and dinner. Yes we all want some easier methods, or someone else to bring it to us or to do it for us, but we are the ones that have to do it for ourselves to get what we want, to be in the space that we want.

Just go into feeling, no thinking, NOTICING, and NOTICING, and NOTICING, being a witness to what you are sensing. Some answers may surprise you, so be prepared for some things you may or may not want to hear. On the outside I've made many positive and somewhat dramatic changes (I ended a relationship that was no longer right for me, and moved out of my apartment, and I'm saving to go live with my brother in Los Angeles), but the real difference is within.
For example, if you want to open your heart to love and connection, you would focus your mind and breath on your heart chakra or the chakra’s corresponding color, which is green. The lovely, fresh objectivity that you had on the day you moved in easily gets lost as furniture arrives and life moves on. You may do that at any place but a special one is better, it would help you to relax faster. Looking outside of ourselves, is something we have been programmed to do, it is alot tougher going within, we are not used to it, but also have not be taught how to go within.
We both also had multiple revelations that occurred after the readings upon considering things she had said.
Though some of the changes have been difficult, I feel excited, energized, and like I've finally broken through a wall to take the next steps on my life's path. It's empowering and helps you reorient to a more inward perspective - which is helpful for those of us who are stuck in a people-pleasing cycle. Meditation room is a cool idea for those who got used to relaxing every day and gaining their spirituality. Keeping your eyes closed, then go into hearing, not thinking but hearing only, the sounds around you, take your time to notice all the subtle sounds, breathing and relaxing. She made me at ease (remotely by phone) and that was a pleasant surprise since it wasn't in person. Then go into smelling, notice any smells or fragrances, just keep tuned into your subtle higher senses.
We will come back to her whenever we visit Sedona in the future and would also recommend her to anyone we know headed that way. Create a minimalist space in calm colors, there’s no need for many things, just a cushion, a candle, maybe a seat. NO Thinking, just being, focusing on your breathing, watching the breath go down into the belly, and watching the exhalation will help.
