Bringing the Awareness to the Movement of the Body "Meditation"

One  aspect  of meditation is to come  back into the Here and Now.
Normally we are remembering the past or thinking about the future.Very seldom are we ever in the present moment. This technique will help you come into the present and will help
relaxation to happen.
 Moving slowly, become aware of how you walk. Close your eyes and with your inner eye, see or sense or feel the foot moving, become aware of the heel,ball of the foot and the toes.
Move your awarness to the calves, feeling them as you move along.Now observe your knees and thighs. Become aware of your belly and solar plexus.Move your inner seeing/sensing or feeling to your chest. Tune into your breathing. Now include in your inner awarness your shoulders,your neck and head. Add to this awarness of your arms and hands.

This is one way to practice awarness. To start with, choose simple actions from the daily routine life, such as walking, eating, cooking and cleaning . Make it like a game. When you  lose your awarness, don't be discouraged. It takes time to be able to be continually aware of your actions. Give yourself praise for having been aware even if it is just for a moment...
