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.

Call to your community of Guides, Angels, Ancestors and Assistants - ask them to join you. Sense them coming closer, surrounding you with their love, light and support.

Lay down in a field of flowers and feel a circle of support being created around you. Their energies intermingle with yours… growing and expanding until you can almost feel the air thickening around you.

Now, breathe in this energy. Take it in, allowing it to come into your being on a cellular level. Feel it filling your lungs and making its way into your bloodstream. Feel the cells within your blood accepting this energy and welcoming it in. The cleansing and healing qualities are immediately put to work, flushing out dis-ease and promoting health.

Your blood continues to flow into each of your organs, healing and cleansing them. *Breathing in, I feel the energy of healing* *Breathing out, I feel the energy of healing*

Your skin is glowing; your eyes can see clearly; your internal organs - healthy and strong - are able to perform their individual functions in a more effecient way. Your tendons and muscles, drink in this energy. Your bones—the very structure of your being—embrace this new vibration of existance. You are stronger, healthier and with less toxins than when you began this mediation. Now this energy is moving into your sub-conscious and concious realms, reaching in and releasing the old out-moded memories, thoughts and behaviours, replacing them with functional, mindful ways of being.

Lay in this energy as long as you desire. *Breathing in, I feel the energy of healing* *Breathing out, I feel the energy of healing* When you are ready, thank your Guides, Angels, Ancestors and Assistants for their love. Open your eyes, feeling healthy and renewed.
