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. The moon is full and the air is sweet. Off to the side you see a path illuminated by torches. Feeling your feet as you take each step, begin to walk towards the path and follow it.

The path winds around and brings you to a deep cleansing pool of water. Beside it is an old Tree. This Tree has seen centuries come and go in the blink of an eye. Walk over to the Tree and sit with your back against it. Feel the strength coming up from it's roots. Feel the wisdom within.

Taking all the stresses of your day, all the frustrating things about your life and any other problems you may be having at this time… place them within the roots of the Tree. She will watch over them for you and if you want them back after you are done, you may take some or all of them… until then, breathe!

Feel your breath coming in to your body, filling your lungs with much needed oxygen. Hold this breath to a count of three and then gently release it. Take another breath in and as you exhale see the colours of the energy you are releasing. Now focus on the colours coming into your body as you inhale.

Placing your feet into the water of the pool allow all the dis-ease and residual stress from your body to flow into the water. Continuing to breathe in with colour and exhale with colour. Sit and focus on your breath for as long as you desire.

When you feel completely relaxed and refreshed, thank Water and Tree for their assistance. Remembering that everything around you is energy and alive. Slowly get up and walk back up the path - returning to the field of flowers.

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 balanced and lighter.
