Meditating is a key method in understanding and transforming your mind. MONQ believes the practice of meditation and the use of essential oils often go hand in hand, which is why we’ve put together a MONQ Meditation series to accompany you through the process to become relaxed and at peace. Each video features a different focus and a guide to using a MONQ diffuser to enhance your experience. This video focuses on motivation to become more energized and active, so check out a MONQ’s personal essential oil diffuser Forest with essential oils black spruce, douglas fir, and sandalwood to help feel the natural serenity of the forest trees and crisp air. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more guided meditation videos, like Active and Vibrant.
Hi and welcome to our MONQ Meditation Series. I’m Victoria Frazier and I’m here to help guide you through our meditation today in which we will focus on feeling more refreshed and focused.
MONQ style necklace is a wonderful way to use the MONQ personally, personal aromatherapy diffuser. I like to have it around my neck, cause then I don’t have to search for it during the meditation and through this forest meditation, I will be taking a couple MONQ breaths throughout, as well as the beginning and the end.

MONQ’s Forest essential oil diffuser has a really nice minty aspect to it, so it helps to open the sinuses as well as help you feel grounded and really transports you into a forest setting. And the forest setting has been shown to increase immunity, decrease stress, and give you a sense of peace and serenity. To use the MONQ, you take a MONQ breath. You don’t want to bring the mist into your lungs, so to prevent myself from doing that I like to take a nice, big, deep breath first. And then I draw the mist into my mouth, use my tongue to push it into my nasal cavity, and then exhale out my nose. I’ll take my first one with you.
It does, it has such a nice minty quality, immediately opens your sinuses. And now we’ll begin our meditation.
Make sure you find a place where you feel most comfortable and safe. This could be out in nature, this could be in your car, even, before going into work. This could be in a space in your office building, or this could be at home. Wherever you have a place where you can shut out the rest of the world and just be with yourself where you can focus on your breath.
Find a nice seated position. I like to find a place where I feel most comfortable. I get to be on a nice cushion today. If you are on the floor and you feel any tension in your knees, get a block or cushion and place it underneath your knees to decrease any stress you may feel in your joints.
And when you are ready, place your hands on top of your knees, open to absorb the energy around you, or to create a little bit more energy within yourself, you can take your index finger and your thumb together for a different mudra, or hand position, to help enhance focus and patience.
When you are ready, close your eyes. Take a nice big, deep inhale all the way down to your belly. Start to focus solely on your breath. The way the cool air feels as it runs through your nostrils, filling first your belly, your diaphragm, all the way up to your throat, and finally out your mouth.
Let every inhale and exhale become a little bit longer to help a feeling of calm and centering. Take another Forest MONQ breath. And feel the minty scent open your sinuses and transport you into a serene forest. As you’re focusing on your breath, let the scent of sandalwood and douglas fir provide a peaceful serenity for you.
Let each inhale and exhale be of equal lengths. And notice any tension you may be feeling in your body and let it go.
Let the crown of your head relax. Let your mouth and jaw become soft. Let your shoulders descend a little bit further down your spine. Let your hips relax into the floor. Let your knees rest comfortably on the ground or cushion. And allow your breath to come back to a natural rhythm.
Take another MONQ breath. Smell the scent of the leaves around you. Hear the gentle fall of raindrops on the leaves. Imagine a full forest of strong trees around you. Feel the earth beneath you, supporting you. Helping to keep you grounded and steady.
Find appreciation for your body. For being here and being grounded. You have the knowledge to complete any task today. Follow your intuition.
If your mind begins to wander and you begin to think of what you might have to do later today or what you should’ve done earlier, acknowledge it and then let it go. You are here in this moment, exactly as you should be, steady and strong, patient and knowledgeable.
Let your mind stay solely focused on your breath. Inhaling calm, exhaling worry. Inhaling peace, exhaling anxiety. Inhaling strength and courage and exhaling fear or self-doubt.
Be confident in yourself, in what you have to offer. Let your inhales sit a little bit taller. Let your exhales bring your shoulders down your spine and know that you are enough.
Take one more Forest MONQ breath and let the scent wake you up a little bit. Take a nice, big, deep inhale and begin to bring awareness back to your fingertips. Wiggle your toes, take one more big inhale and hold it at the top. And let it out your mouth and open your eyes.
Thank you so much for joining us today in our Forest meditation. I hope it revitalized you to bring a little more focus to the rest of your day.
