Postpartum Meditation For The New Mother

by: V. Pearson

When a new baby comes into your life you are lucky you know which end is up. Your body is changing yet again and your hormones are adjusting to their proper levels. You may even experience a bout of postpartum depression. Most of the young women who do experience depression have never dealt with it before. This is where postpartum meditation exercises come in handy. Regardless of whether you are experiencing depression or not, you will find meditating very relaxing and refreshing.

Postpartum Meditation Is A Great Addition To Your Postpartum Exercise Routine:

Meditation has been known to bring back your energy and help you sleep. You only need twenty minutes a day, twice a day, to relax and clear you mind completely. Your baby can pick up on your tension so it is advisable for you to be able to clear the tension and stress from you body and mind.

As you relax and let the negative energy that has built up in your body disperse, you will begin to feel refreshed. Meditation doesn't require you to believe in any specific religion of faith. It simply requires you to relax and get in touch with your own natural rhythms and inner self. These postpartum meditation exercises help you find the feminine power all women possess.

Meditating does not require any special classes and there is no right or wrong way to perform it. Do not force anything to happen and do not over-analyze what is going on in your mind. Also, don't try to blank your mind. With minimal distractions you will be able to slip into a place of quiet solitude that will refresh your body and soul. Turn off your television. Take your phone off the hook. Put on some very soothing music that is conducive to meditating. Simply be with yourself.

To start performing these postpartum meditation exercises, find a comfortable place to sit, using pillows for your buttocks, lower back and legs if need be. Sit with back straight and place your hands in a comfortable position. You do not need to sit in a lotus position or with your thumb and forefingers together. Just sit comfortably. Take and release a few deep breaths slowly and envision you mind and heart opening up to let out all the negativity that has built up within you. This helps the oxygen flow easily through your body and puts you in touch with whatever spiritual energy you wish to feel.

From there, concentrate on your breathing with you eyes closed. After a few moments, picture an object in your mind that you like, such as a flower, or a kitten. While breathing keep that image in your mind. The more you concentrate on it, the more you will see the image in your mind until you suddenly feel the tension fade with the images. The object of postpartum meditation is to let the tension slip away no matter what.

Postpartum meditation exercises can help you sleep better, improve your overall mood, and reduce your stress levels dramatically. Take your time perfecting your meditation and let it help you refresh your own being. By doing so your new baby will have the best mother you can be.
