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 even deeper relaxation.

As you focus on your breath you find your body melting deeper and deeper into the Earth. You are moving through the Earth… down, down, deeper and deeper until you find yourself in a huge underground cavern. The walls are illuminated by lit torches and you can see the walls are damp with moisture. There is a stream off to the side of this cavern; grabbing a torch you notice an opening to the north of you.

As you move towards the opening your body begins to vibrate. You feel this vibration from deep inside of you and it spreads outward. Your fingers are tingling, your skin is reacting to this beautifully high vibration of energy. Continue to slowly move towards the opening.

Now stop and close your eyes. Feel the vibration increasing within you. Breathe it in - hold it inside of you - and then release it. Do this a few times before moving onward.

When you are ready, go through the opening in the cavern to find the largest crystal you have ever seen. Over 5 feet wide at its base you cannot take it all in at once. You look up… and see the crystal is responding to your torch - it begins to glow.

Now you can see this part of the cavern is hundreds of feet high. The ceiling is covered with formations. You close your eyes and breathe in the energy once again, holding it in your lungs before exhaling again. Feel the vibration increasing within your body - experience the deep healing on a cellular level. Breathe in once again and notice the sensation growing ever stronger within you.

Sit down at the base of the crystal. This is an apophylite crystal. One of its abilities is to increase energy in other things. It cannot hold a negative intention. Think about your life. Focus on all the parts of your life you love. Start speaking out loud, stating all the things you are most grateful for. As you list each one, smile and thank each aspect for being part of your life. Sit for as long as you need to, listing what you love about your life, your family, your Self. When you are done, smile.

Feel the appreciation and happiness growing within you. Your skin is glowing from your joy!

Walk around the cavern and touch the crystals. Feel how cool they are to the touch, but when you simply hover your hand above them, the energy feels warm. Scoop the energy as though it's a physical thing and pretend to pour it over your head, over your heart, over any areas which need a little more loving attention. Feel as though you are showering in this high vibration of energy.

Over to the west is a bed. Go lay down and have a restful sleep. Allow yourself to absorb as much of this energy as your body can take in. Allow your Soul to heal from lifetimes of dis-ease and imbalance. You are coming into balance, into ease and health.

After you wake and are ready to leave return the torch to its home so you can find it when you visit next time. Feel yourself slipping upwards, back into the beautiful field of flowers, the clear blue sky above you. Smell the flowers around you, the damp Earth beneath you…

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.
