Earth Energy Mediation.
Revitalizing Relaxation Exercise
This is a great visualisation for times when you find it hard to switch off while trying to meditate.
I love to do this one outdoors, under a big, shady tree if I can.
- Sit comfortably, either on a chair with good support with your feet flat on the ground or floor or on the floor or ground cross-legged. The important thing is that you have contact with the ground or floor.
- Close your eyes, let your breathing become steady and comfortably slow.
- Let your body relax, tell your face and jaw muscles to relax (lots of tension is held here).
- Feel the contact your body is making with the ground or floor. Concentrate on it.
- Imagine the floorboards under the carpet, the space or concrete slab beneath the floor and then earth beneath you. Imagine the topsoil, filled with a tangle of roots and worms, the deep earth, the rock layers, all the way to the core.
- In the core you see a ball of warm, glowing golden light. Feel the heat emanate from it.
- This golden light is pure Earth energy and you see it flowing and streaming in golden ribbons out in all directions.
- The golden energy is drawn up to the surface, up to you.
- Picture the flowing, golden light pooling beneath you, flowing over and into your feet and all the bits of you in contact with the ground or floor.
- Visualise warm, golden energy flowing into you, into your feet, or buttocks, flowing up your legs, into your thighs.
- Imagine it softly tingling and warm in your veins. Washing away your weariness.
- Feel the warm energy flow up into your hips, your groin and stomach.
- Visualise the golden light filling your veins, enervating and cleansing you.
- Continue in this way, in your own time, always feeling your contact with the ground beneath you.
- Let the energy flow into your shoulders and neck, washing away all tension.
- Take a deep breath. Feel the energy. Breathe out.
- Picture the golden light flowing into your face and mind. Relax your jaw muscles.
- Concentrate on the golden light, the pure Earth energy filling your veins, flowing around your body.
When you feel ready, breathe deeply a few times and open your eyes. Get up, have a gentle stretch and smile.
Have a lovely day.
