Opportyounity Meditations - Uncovering Happiness & Health

By Miko
While working with clients, I have managed to use yoga, guided meditations and energy work as a means to release physical, emotional, mental, energetic and spiritual blockages. This podcast is giving YOU the same opportunity! For that I ask you to forget everything you have previously learned and really immerse yourself into this experience.

My name is Miko. I'm a yoga therapy instructor, holistic life coach and creator of the Opportyounity Life Program.

10. Menstrual Pain Relief Meditation
Todays meditation is for all the ladies out there, that are suffering from lower abdomen pain during their menstruation. However, bare in mind, that the actual cause of these pains are what need to be treated in order to stop the vicious pain cycle. The root cause can stem from malnutrition or other physical blockages in your system but they can also stem from emotional, mental or even karmic/spiritual blockages. That being said, this meditation might therefore only help you with the pain you are currently experiencing. Before getting started, the remedy that has always saved me from sever pains is yoga and the combination of a hot water bottle with a rub of essential oils on my belly. You can find a post with the ingredients and other useful tips on my opportyounity instagram, website and facebook. However, please also read the instructions and counterindications before using it. Note: To experience the best sound, Use a pair of headphones.

9. Step into a new YOU - Walking Meditation
Todays meditation is a walking meditation where you will use your physical body, your mind and your senses to move into a new version of YOU. Use headphones for this meditation, so that your hands are free. You will however also be observing the sounds around you, so it would be best to keep one of your ears free from your headphones. Put on your shoes or even better - walk barefoot along the beach, in your garden or wherever you feel comfortable, taking off your shoes for a while. Even if you are inside somewhere, you’re able to join this meditation but I would highly recommend you getting some fresh air and connecting with nature for some time. We will be walking very slowly at the beginning, so if you feel uncomfortable with people looking at you while you walk in slow motion, choose a place without potential observers. The best option however is to simply do it anyways and not worry about what others might be thinking. Dive into the meditation: 01:30 Take a look at: www.opportyounity.life for a journal which can help you readjust your lifestyle and improve your health & happiness. Disclaimer: Do not practice meditation while driving a car or operating any kind of machinery. If you have any special requests, don't hesitate to contact me!

8. Full Moon Meditation - Recharge & Activate Your Sensuality
Todays meditation is all about the full moon and will be a bit more sensual than usual. Use this meditation to revive your senses/sensuality and dive into the cleansing atmosphere of the full moon. The light of the full moon has always been magical to me and is probably the most flattering light for the human body. No wonder it is the time for high energy, sexuality, inspiration and socializing. It is also seen as a feminine energy of creativity, empathy, sensuality, and comfort. Moon bathing is known for reducing anxiety, stress and rebalancing your inner world. Back in the day, when artificially lighting did not yet exist, women were said to be most fertile during this time as their menstrual cycle would be in tune with the moon phases. Note: To experience the best sound, Use a pair of headphones. Dive into the meditation: 01:59 Take a look at: www.opportyounity.life for a journal which can help you readjust your lifestyle and improve your health & happiness.

7. Power on! Energise your Day
Are you feeling low on energy? Use this meditation if you are a nature lover and in need of a recharge to get your day started! In this meditation you will be using the Dhyana Mudra: Place your left hand in your lap, and place your right hand on top. The fingers of your right hand should therefore be placed on top of the palm of your left hand and the fingers of your left hand are laying below the palm of your right hand. Both tips of your thumbs should be touching. You can find an image of this mudra on my Instagram in the carousel post for this meditation.

6. Gratitude Meditation
Todays meditation is about being grateful for many of the wonderful things life has to offer. Even if you don't feel like some of these things resonated with your current situation, the more you listen to this meditation and the more you fill these visualisations with love and imagine them as if they have already happened, the more your energy, your body, your mind and your surrounding will shift into this direction. Gratitude is one of the highest and most powerful vibrations you can tune into as it suggests to your being and to everyone and everything around you, that it has already happened. Take a look at: www.opportyounity.life for a journal which can help you readjust your lifestyle and improve your health & happiness. Note: To experience the best sound, Use a pair of headphones. Dive into the meditation: 01:59 Disclaimer: Do not practice meditation while driving a car or operating any kind of machinery. If you feel extremely overwhelmed at any point during this meditation - relax your breath, open your eyes and use your senses to orient yourself.

5. Forgiveness Meditation
This meditation will help you let go of draining emotions you might feel towards someone else (or even yourself) and help you forgive more easily. Going into the feeling of love and other higher vibrational emotions, will help you regain control over your own feelings, instead of letting them be influenced by someone else. Using a guided visualisation including nature and plants, and the powerful Hawaiin H'oponopono technique, you will come out of this meditation feeling more empowered and filled with love for yourself and the other person.

03 - Healing from sexual trauma with yoga and somatic experiencing with Maria Noe
Maria Noe takes us on her journey from being a professional singer to becoming a yoga instructor & somatic coach. When she talks about the person she used to be, it seems as if she is talking about another person. She had several incidences where she was considering to change her lifestyle but only one of them was so traumatic, that it shook her whole life and turned everything upside down. She experienced sexual assault and the PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) that so often comes with it — consequently bringing her to leave her career in entertainment to pursue her personal healing journey. It all started when she first stumbled across a yoga studio nearby her home. This is where she learned to reconnect with herself through flowing movements, breathing exercises, meditation, and the yogic philosophy. She was intrigued by the impact yoga had on her and deepened her knowledge in holistic & somatic healing therapies. After going through the trauma of the assault and finding techniques to reconnect with her body and heal herself, her passion now lies in helping other survivors do the same.
