First off I will begin by apologizing for lack of blog posts. I am the biggest procrastinator. I often get caught up in the never ending to-do lists that are constantly running through my head! What tends to get lost in the pile is stuff like keeping up on this blog. Now having admitted my humanity, and lack of superhuman powers that I so desperately wish I possessed, let's talk about meditation.
I am terrible at mediating! I believe it has a lot to do with the constant voices in my head that I mentioned above.There is this one simple meditation that is easy for someone like me to follow that I would like to share with you today.
Please begin by taking a deep breath and while exhaling focusing your attention on your feet. You can be sitting, standing, or even laying down for this. Just breath in and out and focus your attention on the soles of your feet. Now imagine that deep from the molten center of the earths core there is a stream of molten light. This is a stream of liquid energy and it is flowing upwards and into your feet. Then imagine that this stream is in your lower legs. Next this stream flows into your upper legs. Now imagine this stream entering your abdomen, and finally the stream is all the way up into your chest. It has entered your heart center at the core of your chest.
The next step is to imagine outer space. Far out into the vastness of space there is a sliver light. This bright silver light energy is coming down and entering the top of your head. Next this energy light begins to flow down your neck. Then this light flows into your shoulders and out into your arms and hands. This light then returns back up your arms and settles and gathers down into your chest. Here it meets with the energy from the earth. There in the center of your chest imagine these two streams merging into pure white light. Now imagine that this pure white light is extended from your chest out into the world with white atomic light. Think of an atomic white explosion coming from your heart center out into the world. This light is so strong and so bright that you can't look at it as it flows out into the world from your chest.
Now slowly return your attention to your body and try and hold that feeling and imagery of white atomic light emanating from the center of your chest for the rest of your day.
What this meditation does for me is to remind me that I am a being of both heaven and earth. It helps me to remember to be grounded and present in day to day living, but also be connected to source. By emanating white light and love from my chest center I tend to see the world in a different light. I hold more compassion for others and for myself and tend to not sweat the small stuff of day to day living.
I hope this mediation can be of help to any of you!
