The Lunar New Year is the beginning of a calendar year where months are marked by moon cycles. Now that we’ve entered a new year, we can look forward to planting seeds of good health, wellbeing, and prosperity. Here’s a lunar new year meditation for good fortune.
Ensure that you are a in quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for the next few minutes. Once you feel settled, find a comfortable seated position. Root down through your sitting bones, then lengthen your spine up to the sky.
Roll the shoulders up and back, then soften the space between your eyebrows. Scan your body from the top of your forehead down to your toes and become aware of your breath.
Feel the natural rhythm and cadence of your breath. Observe the rise and fall of your chest and belly as you inhale, then notice the softening of your chest and your belly as you exhale. Ever so gently, feel the air entering your nostrils and exiting your nostrils.
Start to visualize a silver or a golden light beaming from the top of your head. Allow this light to slowly trickle downwards, filling you with feelings of prosperity and abundance. Visualize this light spreading down to your shoulders, chest, belly, and back body.
Trust that this light is inviting good fortune into your life. You do not need to overthink or analyze—just let go of all doubts and inhibitions and continue to let these feelings of wealth and prosperity spread through and within you.
Then, start to imagine an abundance of money within your reach. This can be a pile of golden coins or stacks of dollar bills. Look at it and reach out for it with your mind’s eye. Touch it with your hands.
Feel this abundance of money all around you—as if it were already there. Most importantly, feel good about it. Feel happy, excited, and absolutely prosperous. You do not need to look any further for good fortune! Good fortune has already arrived.
When you are ready to end your meditation, let go of these images. Feel the weight of your body against the floor or mat, and take deep breaths. Finally, open your eyes. Try to this lunar new year meditation for good fortune during the next Full Moon, when vibrations are high.
