Au tumn is a time of balance. Light and dark, heat and cold, are moderated in this season. It’s not just about balance in nature, though. It’s also about balance within, work-life balance, and other personal aspects.
For this moving meditation, you will need a wobble board, a yoga ball, a bicycle, or another balance tool. First pay attention to your body. Think about how balanced you feel (or not). Climb onto your balance tool. Feel for your center of gravity. It should help you find your balance. Tilt your weight gently to feel the shifts, taking care not to fall off. Feel your awareness of gravity and your vertical axis. Visualize how the earth spins, always moving, always balanced. Think about different areas of your life. Are you doing too much of one thing and not enough of another? Feel how your balance shifts along with your thoughts. “Heavy” thoughts have weight! Imagine doing something different and see if that shifts your balance. After you finish meditating, go change one thing.
