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.

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.

There is a path off to your left. Take off your shoes and begin to walk along the path, feeling the warm, worn stones beneath your feet. In the distance is a house surrounded by a low fence… as you get closer you see a gate and walk towards it.

The gate is locked and as you lift your hand up you find the key in your palm. Unlock the gate and enter the yard, closing the gate behind you.

Look at the house. Does it have any windows? What is the siding like? What colour is it? Walk towards the door and enter the house. A small child is sitting in a big comfy chair. S/he welcomes you and introduces themselves as you… at age 8. They want to assist you, to have deeper and more meaningful relationships in this lifetime and so, they ask you to join them in removing some out-moded, past life stuff.

You sit in the chair with your child-within and a table appears before you. Beside the table is a large sack, filled with the many habits, dis-eases, relationships etc. you have carried with you throughout your lives. Many of them are now obsolete and can be discarded.

You start pulling things out of your sack and you or your child-within either put them into a new sack for you to continue carrying with you or push them off the edge of the table into a huge compost hole… where they will be turned into loving, healing energy for the Earth.

Take as long as you need to at this point.

When you are done. Look at the pile you have discarded and send pink light into the pile… releasing it all with love.

Now take the hand of your child-within and go outside. Waiting for you, (sitting in the lower branches of a very old tree) is someone in this life who you need to reconnect with. It may be one of your kids, an old friend, your partner… allow the person to form before you rather than choosing who it will be.

Climb up and join them in the "Tree of Life" and ask them what they need from you in this life. Now ask what you need from them.

Take your time and listen to this person. When you are done, thank them for coming to you and reach down and hug your child-within… thanking them for all the assistance they have brought to you today.

When you feel 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.
