Relax, unwind and envision yourself in the New Year through this guided meditation led by Julie Potiker. She completes the meditation with her poem, "Clear a Path".Clear a Path by Julie Potiker Clear a pathSettleAllow your thoughts to drift downGently sweep them aside with a soft broom, the kind that looks hand made from natural grassesSome of the little notes now in piles on the perimeter of your awareness are things to return to later, not now, but later so you keep them safeOther notes are best to release - the worry, the rumination that woke you at 4amGo ahead and toss that sticky stack into the small round fire bowlThe smoke swirling as that which does not serve you de-materializesSettle your mind to clear a path to your heart where joy and suffering slosh Your heart – which when broken miraculously goes on beatingYour heart safety valves, allowing your mind to crank the hatches shut, when too much suffering threatens to drop you to the inky bottom of the seaYou can open the hatch a peepFeeling into whether it’s OK right now to let tears move through youToo much? Crank it down to steer your mind to translucent watersThat’s skillful maneuveringTurning your attention towards joy in that momentNoticing beauty out the windowLetting a song stir your soulEnjoying the perfect cup of teaRelishing the sound of your friend’s voice on the phoneOr my favorite, the sound of my voice in my head, calling myself sweetheart and letting me know that this too shall pass, both the good and the bad, in waves of beginnings and endings.Get the latest on mindfulness and meditation by subscribing to Julie Potiker's YouTube channel and Facebook page at Mindful Methods for Life.You can learn about mindfulness at www.MindfulMethodsForLife.com and also in Julie's newly released book, "Life Falls Apart, But You Don't Have To: Mindful Methods For Staying Calm In The Midst Of Chaos", available on Amazon.com.
