Step 1: You need to find a quiet place where you
know you’ll have at least 15 – 30 minutes of time without interruptions.
Step 2: You need to be comfortable. The most common
way is to get a cushion and sit on the floor. You can have your back
against the wall. Your hands may be on your knees, palm up, or folded
on your lap. If this position is not to your liking, use any position
that works for you, even lie down on your bed (try not to go asleep).
It's important to keep your spine straight throughout meditation.
Most need to pay attention to this at first – until it feels natural.
Step 3: Close your eyes. Relax.
Step 4: Slowly take a deep breath in, hold it,
and then breathe out. You can breathe in while counting to 6,
hold for 3, and then exhale for 6. You may use another pattern
if it seems more comfortable to you.
Repeat this slow breathing for at least 5 minutes. You will become
very aware of the calming, rhythmic pattern.
Step 5: Gradually slow your breathing down, to
be slower, slower, and deeper. Now visualize yourself breathing
in freshness and love; and breathing out negativity and fear.
Step 6: Visualize your feet surrounded with a
golden ball of beautiful, warm light. It may take time before you
see the ball in your 'minds eye'. In time you will. This ball of
light always brings peace and relaxation. With the coming in of
the warm light, negativity drops out the bottoms of your feet. You
may also tighten and relax your toes.
Wherever the ball of light goes, tension will leave, and it will
charge you with its energy.
Step 7: Now, the ball of light expands up your
legs, then to include your torso. Let it go down your arms, to your
fingers. Then up to your head. Now it surrounds your entire body.
You are now surrounded by this majestic golden ball of warm light.
Step 8: Stay in this state of deep relaxation
for several minutes.
Know that you can enter this state of deep relaxation whenever you
want. In doing this ritual you become one with yourself, and you are
one with the divine.
When you are ready to leave this state of relaxation, take three
deep breaths. With each breath you become fully refreshed and alive,
aware of energy throughout your body.
