Meditate a Moment
featuring: Aleesha Stephenson

Before we begin this meditation I would like you to formulate a question. Something you would like to ask your Guide while you are sitting with them. Once you have your question in your mind, close your eyes and ground yourself.

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.

Visualize yourself in a field of flowers. Over to the left you see a little fenced area. This is your garden. As you walk towards it you see the gate is locked. Reach into your pocket and take out the key, unlocking the gate and then returning the key into your pocket again.

There is a huge fountain in the middle surrounded by flowers, bushes, trees - whatever you desire. In the back corner is a compost. Spend some time wandering around your garden, gifting it some of your time and energy to assist it to flourish. When you are done, go sit on the bench beside your fountain.

Off in the distance you see one of your Guides approaching. As they get closer, you can feel their energy - your skin tingles as their energy mingles with yours. Take their hand and walk out the back gate of your garden and towards the horizon.

You are coming towards the edge of a cliff. Down below is the ocean and the tide is coming in. Sit down on the edge of the cliff and watch the water below you. See how it connects with the rocks and sand… are there any birds or animals along the shore? Far in the distance you can see the water and sky meet.

As you sit - high above the water looking down you see things with equanimity. Rather than being immersed in the activity - you are gifted with a grander view of life.

Your Guide is sitting beside you and is waiting for you to ask your question. Go ahead and ask it now. Allow yourself 5-20 minutes to sit and watch the water below while you remain open to hearing what your Guide has to share.

When you are done talking with your Guide - thank them and walk back to the field of flowers.

Lay in the field of flowers. Feel the perfection of this moment and the gift it is. When you are ready, thank your Guide again… gently open your eyes, feeling calm and peace-filled.
