Light breathing / Healing meditation:
Prepare properly before starting – this is important. Don’t rush or cut corners at this stage.
When settled and candle lit etc spend a few moments just breathing consciously.
Imagine you are at your favourite ‘inner’ beach, hear the waves, smell the sea, feel the warm breeze on your face.
Now walk to the edge of the forest. Step onto the path and feel the difference in temperature. Different heat. The light is now filtered through green. Beautiful green. Hear the birds. The breeze in the trees. Smell the scents of the forest.
You come to a clearing. Lush. To the right far side is a small lake. At the far end of the lake is a waterfall flowing down green mossy stone cliff walls. The water is energised.
Around the lake are large flat warm stones. Sit on one.
Close you eyes.
Breathe in deep and relaxed. Now be aware of breathing air and light into your body. Breathe out air. Breathe in air and light, breathe out air. The light builds like a reservoir within. Feel the light filling down the front of your body. Feel the gentle pressure of light building within with each in breath.
Now with each in breath the light moves to your back, and pulses up your spine with each breath. Each in breath causes the light to progress further up your spine. Breathe in air and light, breathe out air. Light flows down and round your body and then up your spine, also now filling your back, your entire body in fact filling with light. All levels. Bones, circulation, flesh, nervous system all glowing with healing light.
Gathering at the base of your neck. Any restriction releases completely. Filling your head now. Feel a slight pressure – then, as if the top of your head is removed, the light flows out. As if your head is open to the cosmos.
Breathe in air and light. Breathe out air. Breathe in air and light and now also the light now flowing out of your head. So air and light in, air and light out, in a circuit, a flow around your body.
All resistance melts away. You are vibrant with light, shining with light, radiant with light. A light that flows, a light that moves, a light that energises, a light that heals. All you have to do is keep breathing.
After a while you feel it is time to withdraw from this. The amount of light flowing in reduces and stop. You breathe in air. You breathe out air and light.
Breathe normally now and feel your body slowly and gently returning to a physical, skin encapsulated form.
You relax and hear the birdsong once more.
When you are ready you get up and walk back through the forest to the beach, back to your starting place. Then return fully to the ‘normal’ world.
Take a deep breath and smile.
If you repeat this healing meditation you might like to keep a journal. Ideas will come which might be forgotten if not recorded.
Also after your healing you might care to swim in the warm water, or to see what is behind the waterfall perhaps, or to explore the forest a little more. This place is my gift to you. Take care of it for me.
