The Joy of Easter Meditation by Susan Helene Kramer

The joy of Easter is contagious! When we think of the risen Lord we feel hope well up in us that the challenges in our life will rise up and fly away, the burdens lift and be gone.

Let's give thanks for the joy of Easter and let it live in our hearts every day that we may transform our world into a positive home for all humanity. It must be done one by one and what better time to begin than in this present moment.

Let this meditation inspire you to contribute to the joy in the world.

Begin by sitting on a cushion on the floor or on a chair with your back held straight. If sitting on the floor fold your legs in, and if sitting in a chair place the soles of your feet firmly on the floor for balance.

Fold your hands in your lap or rest them face up or face down on your thighs.

Close your eyes and take in a cleansing breath and slowly release it. Now begin a cycle of even breaths in and out, such as one count in and one count out. Continue this rhythmic pattern throughout your meditation without actually saying or thinking the numbers.

Breath is the connection between body, mind, emotion. By concentrating on breathing evenly the mind is distracted from anxious thoughts. Over time and practice even and rhythmic breathing can come to your rescue at a moment's notice to regain your peace when needed.

Spend a minute observing your breaths and feel your body, mind, emotions become peaceful and calm.

Today's meditation is about carrying the joy of the risen Lord into your daily life. This is done by not disturbing the natural peace awakened in this meditation. By acting in the world from clarity of mind and with right and good actions maintain or regain harmony. Choosing to act for the best of each situation is a way to maintain personal peace, personal joy. And when we are in this state others will catch it too, as joy is contagious.

We are a sisterhood and brotherhood of humanity, affecting each other by actions, thoughts, moods.

Spend a few minutes quietly contemplating feelings of connection with others both come and gone.

Finish your Easter meditation with an appreciation for all that is positive in your life and send out thoughts of caring love to the universe.

Take a deep breath, slowly release it, stretch out and go on with your day.

Happy Easter!

Dear Susan,

I have been delving into mindfulness and meditation and it helps to regulate and "rescue" you at a moments notice. Thank you for sharing this.
