Trista Thorp on Emotional Freedom: A Guided Meditation
*Click the link above

Today we will focus our attention on expanding our experience of freedom – the freedom that reveals itself through the simple act of asking the question “What do I want?” before we go into meditation. Through the consistent practice of meditation, we are able to connect more deeply to our personal soul. As we expand our awareness of who we are at the core of our being, some interesting realizations begin to surface. This soul connection brings clarity to what it is that we want to see unfold in our lives.

By asking ourselves the question “What do I want?” we begin our internal dialogue with the universe. We ask the question and then we detach, trusting the infinite organizing power of the universe to work out the details.

Now, ask yourself the questions:  “What am I holding onto that is no longer serving me? Is there an area of my life where I can visualize moving from constriction to total and complete expansion?  What does my life look like? – What does it FEEL like after I have consciously decided to let go of that constriction; that person, that experience, that thing that no longer serves me?”

Meditation allows us the opportunity to view our current life circumstances – created by our actions, imprinted as memories, and driven by our desires – and the freedom to make different choices in the present moment. Through this process of witnessing, identifying, and letting go, we create a new, upgraded version of our self that is emotionally free. The Sanskrit term for this freedom is moksha, and we will use this word as our mantra during today’s guided meditation – moksha . . . moksha . . . moksha. . . .

Be well,

The word moksha (MOKE-shah) is an ancient Sanskrit sutra that means freedom, liberation, or release. The sutra has been used for thousands of years by millions of people to transform negative energy into a higher state of awareness.

Whenever you feel stressed, anxious, or out of balance, imagine that you are pure, unlimited consciousness, free of whatever situation has thrown you off course. In a comfortable, seated position, close your eyes and silently repeat the words “Moksha. I am emotionally free.” Keep repeating the sutra for several minutes, letting it resonate deep within you.
