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-spiration and exhale all the stresses of your day. Again, 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.

Visualize yourself in a field of flowers. The sky is blue and the sun is warm against your skin. A bird is in the sky and butterflies are enjoying the nectar of the flowers.

Lay down on the warm earth and take a deep breath… enjoy the wonderful smell of the freshness of the earth and flowers surrounding you.

Gazing up at the sky, you begin to see some clouds forming and as they take shape, you realize you can create them into whatever you desire simply by wishing them into form. You may see some clouds become children; others become you starting a new job, meeting a new friend or having more time alone. Actual scenes are forming within the whispy clouds above you.

You feel a presence beside you and as you feel them slip their hand into yours, you immediately recognize the energy of your Guide. They are there to assist you to see.

Through the images you are creating, you are showing your Guide what it is you wish to create in your life at this time. Sometimes your Guide brings in an image for you as well, what they believe is for your greatest good at this time.

No words are spoken as you lay, relaxing, breathing, creating…

After a time, when you feel your creating is complete for this journey, turn to your Guide and thank them for coming to assist you. Watch as your Guide fades away in the distance and when you are ready to return to your day…

Wiggle your toes… and your shoulders… bringing your focus back to your day with a renewed freshness and vitality.
