balloon body meditation

Have you ever felt completely removed from your physical body? As if you are watching yourself from above like you would in a dream? I have – and it’s horrible. I can remember the bright summer day in 2019 after I interviewed for an engineering position with The City of Reno. When I got home, I burst into tears and fell to the floor.

It was a beautiful Friday afternoon and I had a social/work event to be at in less than an hour – so I wiped my tears and headed out the door. The entire rest of the evening, even though I was surrounded by friends, I was completely out of my body. It felt like I, my spirit, was hovering above me, watching my body go through the motions. I was exhausted by the time I got home.

So, how do you get yourself out of this situation? How do you re-attach yourself to your body? Once I finally got some space that night, I did a balloon body meditation. It brought me back to my body to where I felt like I could finally breathe again. *sighs heavily* It brought me back to my body, my awareness, and my power. The balloon body meditation below can be used whether you are having a panic attack or not – it can be used at any time to help you self-attune. There will always be some introspective information to gather from doing a balloon body meditation. Even if you don’t think you need it, I invite you to try. For me, this experience was a clear sign from the Universe that taking the engineering position was not in my highest interest (and that certainly turned out to be true!).

Find a comfortable seated position.

Notice your breath. Deepen your breath with a few extra long exhales.

Ground your energy to the earth.

Bring awareness to your third eye space and close your eyes.

Imagine the space that your body holds is now a balloon/aura.

Expand your body balloon outwards so that it is a couple inches away from your skin in all directions.

Pause. Notice sensations/emotions/feelings.

Now expand your balloon body outwards to a few feet from your body. Pause and feel.

When you are ready, fill the whole room by pushing your balloon body outwards to every corner of the room.

Once it feels right, allow those boundaries to ease back in to where it is comfortable for you to maintain.

That is where your aura sits at today.

Comment below: Did you feel your physical body release stress during the balloon body meditation? How far away from you was your balloon body when you brought it back in? Notice that this boundary can change from day to day, moment to moment.
