Himalayan hands turning prayer wheels
in shaken purification,
Sending boxes quickly.
“I am doing my prayers around the world to create a world without war and tension.” – Grandmother Aama Bombo

Journal prompt: Take a few moments to find solitude and quiet your mind. Have your journal or notebook nearby. Shake out any tension in your hands and do some neck rolls. Breathe slowly to the count of four. Do the breaths four times. Then, listen to the gong at the following link with Grandmother- Mother Shaman. Continue just to sit. Imagine your thoughts of support going directly to the people of Nepal.
When you are finished, write down any images or thoughts that come to you. If nothing happens, that’s ok too.
Discussion: Try the doing this exercise at the same time of day or night-maybe for four sessions. Add a candle to your mediation, or make a simple altar with flowers and things that help you feel calm. Notice how your body feels and what comes forward for you.
Love and gratitude to you, dear readers!
