Peace Begins With Me, a Short Meditation
In this meditation, you’ll combine the mantra “peace begins with me” with hand gestures: pressing your thumb to each finger. It's so simple, it works. And you can be nearly anywhere, doing nearly anything, as you do this.
1. Take some deep breaths, as many as you need to or just a few.
2. As you say each word, you'll place your thumb against one finger at a time:
When you touch your index finger, say: PEACE.
When you touch your middle finger, say: BEGINS.
When you touch your ring finger, say: WITH.
When you touch your pinky finger, say: ME.
3. Repeat three or more times, as fast or slow as you want to.
. . .
