A big tight HUG
I have seen and practiced a lot of spiritual practices in my life. But one spiritual practice which helps me a lot is HUGS. HUGS always help me whenever I am feeling sad, happy, excited, or anything. Many people think that to HUG, you need someone. I believe that you can even HUG yourself. One HUG to yourself or anyone will make you very calm and compassionate. HUGS doesn’t have any limits or barriers. You can HUG an animal or even a tree isn’t it? Every time we are low, we just need a big tight HUG. But is there any proper way of HUG in the spiritual process? Yes, there is, it is called Hugging meditation. You can practice hugging meditation with a friend, a child, your parents, or even a tree. To practice, first, bow to each other and recognize each other's presence. Then, enjoy three deep, conscious breaths to bring yourself fully into the present moment. Next, open your arms and begin hugging, holding each other for three in-and-out breaths. With the first breath, become aware that you are present in this very moment and feel happy. With the second breath, become aware that the other person is present in this moment and feel happy as well. With the third breath, become aware that you are here together, right now on this Earth. We can feel deep gratitude and happiness for our togetherness. Finally, release the other person and bow to each other to show your thanks. HUGS means what Helping Us Grow Spiritually.
