Savasana - The Corpse - Yoga PostureVitality Meditation by Sue Fuller

Perform this meditation in the morning before you get out of bed, to bring vitality to the body and prepare you for the day ahead.

This meditation should not be followed in the evening as it will increase energy levels and might disrupt your sleep.

Perform this meditation in savasana (the corpse), lying on your back with your legs extended and your arms alongside your body with your palms facing up.  Usually we sit up with a straight spine for meditation, try this meditation lying on your back, to allow pranic energy to flow freely around your body with no barriers or restrictions. 

Begin to breathe slowly in and out through your nose, feel yourself relaxing on each exhalation.  Bring your awareness to the long straight lines that are created by your body and notice the prana travelling freely around your body.  Focus on this flow of energy and visualise it.

When you feel ready picture your breath as white light entering and leaving your body, continue to focus on your breath.  After a short time begin to picture the white light travelling all around your body from your inner core, to the outermost edges of the body.  Continue with this visualisation for as long as is comfortable and then allow the image to fade.  Continue to lay in Savasana for up to five minutes breathing slowly before slowly coming to a sitting position.

This meditation can be performed as and when it is required you can also follow it seated during the day if energy levels feel low.  It will increase vitality and leave you confident and full of positive energy.
