Meditate A Moment
featuring: Aleesha Stephenson

Grounding ourselves whenever we meditate is so important. It assists us to stay connected while we travel to other dimensions within our mind, or other worlds. When we meditate and are not grounded, we feel light-headed and have a hard time as our mind will often wander rather than opening to the meditation. Then when we are finished meditating it can be hard to walk or even finish a sentence! So please remember to ground yourself before beginning any meditation.

Let's begin.

Take three deep cleansing breaths, in ease and exhale all the dis-ease of your day. Now for our second breath, IN-spiration and releasing any tension in your body and one more… IN-spiration and exhale any residual negativity.

Visualize a star in a nearby galaxy; this is the Heaven Star. A beam of light is coming out of the Heaven Star, feel yourself begin to draw this energy down, through the galaxy, towards Earth. Down through our atmosphere and down down down towards your crown chakra (top of your head). This light moves very slowly into your head, past your eyes, your cheeks, your jaw and into your neck. Then vertebra by vertebra it moves down your spine towards the base of your spine (1st chakra).

As this energy touches the base of your spine you feel it change. Roots begin to develop and weave their way down your legs, past your knees, slowly pushing their way down your calves and into your ankles. You feel them filling your feet and gently reaching out of the soles of your feet and pushing their way into the ground beneath you.

Deep into the Earth they glide, down down down until the roots touch the Earth Star. Winding themselves around the Earth Star they meld with this Star and begin to feed. The energy of the Earth Star pulsates up the roots, up up up through the ground until you feel it entering your feet.

Your roots continue to draw this wonderful grounding energy up, feeding on it, feeling its weight as you begin to feel ever more connected to the Earth.

Allow the deep connection your are feeling with the Earth Star energy and the light connection you are experiencing with the Heaven Star energy to connect within your heart chakra. Feel them mixing and melding together.

Visualize yourself in a field of flowers. Lie down in the grass and look up to the bright blue sky above you. Smell the scent of the earth as you allow your body to melt into deep relaxation. Your toes are relaxed… your ankles are loose and relaxed. Your calves are relaxed and your knees - every intricate part of your knees are relaxed.

You feel your thighs relax as the cool earth below you draws out any stress you have hiding there. Your hips are loose and relaxed as you take another deep breath into your lungs, holding it for a moment and then releasing all your air before taking another deep breath. Continue deep breathing as you feel your spine - vertebra by vertebra relaxing. Your lungs massage your diaphragm and it in turn massages your transverse colon as you draw in another deep breath.

Your lymphatic system is being stimulated as you take another deep breath in and release it completely. Your shoulders are completely relaxed as are your arms, your wrists, your fingers…

Relax your neck, your face, your eyes as you take another deep breath in and you feel your scalp relax as you exhale. Lying in the grass you continue to breath deeply - allowing your entire body to benefit from this slow cleansing healing breath.

Imagine your toes receiving the oxygen you are taking in as your lungs release toxins from your body as they exhale. All of the stress your body may have felt before you began is gone as your breath releases it.

After 4 minutes you begin to feel the desire to stand up and you walk slowly down the path to the crystal pool below. Gently lowering yourself into the pool you feel connected to the water as it cleanses your skin; touching every inch of you, caressing you.

Feel the warmth of the water as it washes over you, knowing everything you release here is no longer within you. Your body is cleaner, healthier and more relaxed.

When you are ready, climb out of the pool and put on the dry clean clothes waiting for you. Walking towards the old tree beside the pool, you sit and rest; enjoying this moment. Feel the ground beneath your feet, the trunk of the tree against your back. Sit here and simply breathe.

When you are ready, simply open your eyes, knowing your are a cherished child of the God/Goddess and your physical, spiritual, mental and emotional self is lighter.
