Each of the following visualized meditations have a common
beginning, the lighting of a 'spiritual' candle, saying a prayer
for assistance, and a process for a visualized protection of
yourself and your surroundings. Remember these are only suggestions.
Variations of these techniques or others not discussed here may
work better for you.
Following this section
are three examples of meditative prayers used specifically to
identify the intent of the meditation. The first is used for
the sole purpose of protection, the second for calling upon your
guides and teachers to assist with a reading, and the final prayer
is used primarily for closing a reading, or special meditation.
Meditations should be performed in a location of your house
or office reserved for spiritual practices. You can use any variety
of spiritual or new age music if you choose. Crystals, candles
and other spiritual tools are also encouraged.
If you find a piece of music you really like for meditation,
stick with it. If you use the same piece each time you meditate,
you will pre-program your mind to step into a state of relaxation.
Each time you practice, your mind will move into this state with
less effort and more quickly, allowing you more time for greater
meditative work. My personal favorite piece is called Ascension
to All That Is by Robert Slap. You can find it on Amazon.com
Preparing the Room
The room you choose to perform a reading should be filled
with positive energy. There are many techniques to perform this
task, the following are just 2 examples.
A smudge stick is a collection of dried herbs wrapped together
with string. Smudge sticks are usually made from sage and a more
fragrant herb such as lavender or sandlewood. The sage is used
to ward off unwanted or negative energies, the second herb typical
denotes the purpose of the stick. I have found sage and lavender
to be an excellent cleansing mixture.
You will need a smudge stick, a book of matches or a lighter.
A small bowl to place the smudge into after the blessing. Set
the items out before you on the floor or on a coffee table. If
you choose to use spiritual music, begin the tape now. <
Sit quietly in the center of the room and close your eyes.
Take a few moments to say a brief prayer of protection and to
call upon your guide(s) for assistance. Open your eyes and light
the smudge stick at one end. Let the herbs burn for about 10
to 15 seconds. Blow out the flames and allow the herbs to smolder.
Stand and face North, raise the smudge toward the ceiling
and say: 'Bless the element of air. The power of the mind'.
Turn to your right to face the East, raise the smudge and
say: 'Bless the element of fire. The power of spirit'.
Turn to your right to face the South, raise the smudge and
say: 'Bless the element of water. The power of emotion'.
Turn to your right to face West, raise the smudge and say:
'Bless the element of earth. The power of the physical.'
Turn to your right to face North once more, lower the smudge
toward the ground and say: 'Bless the Mother Earth'.
Raise the smudge over your head and say: 'Bless the Father
Lower the smudge to chest level. Fan the smoke toward your
body with your hand or a large feather and say: 'Bless this house,
myself and my purpose. Please remove any negative energies out
into the universe where they can be dissipated and can no longer
do harm to anyone. Send to me the most positive light and power
to fulfill my plan for this day. In return I give my thanks and
gratitude, my love and positive light for the universal good
of all. Amen.'
Place the smudge stick in the small bowl and let it continue
to smoke. When the client arrives ask if they mind leaving the
smudge burning during the session. If they do, simply turn the
stick upside down and gently grind the burning embers into the
bowl. Do not use water to put out the remaining coals as this
will ruin your smudge stick.
If the client has no opposition to the smudge stick, place
it on a table on the opposite side of the room. That way the
smoke from the stick will not interfere with your ability to
perceive the clients aura. Just remember to extinguish the stick
after the reading.
You will need a white candle and something to light it with.
The following images help to balance your own energy, while at
the same time adds to your personal power level for cleansing
the 'reading' room. This meditation will also help to protect
you from unwanted intrusions created by negative energies. If
you choose to use spiritual music, begin the tape now.
Sit in the center of the room, either on a chair or on the
floor. Make sure your back is straight and the position you choose
is comfortable for about a 10-15 minute session. This allows
the positive energy to flow through you and assist in the process.
Take a minute to relax and focus your energies. Light the
white candle and imagine the flame is coming from within your
Close your eyes and take in 3 deep breaths through your nose.
As you do, imagine the positive white light of the universe entering
your body and energizing your lungs. As you exhale through your
mouth, imagine any negativity, stress and anxiety exiting your
body. Say to yourself 'I release all stress and negative emotions
to the universe from my body and my home, where they can be dissipated
and no longer do harm to anyone'.
As you take in the final breath, imagine God's energy filling
your lungs with a large ball of pure protective white light.
Now return to normal breathing and imagine the ball of light
in your lungs beginning to grow as it mixes with your own energy.
As the ball becomes larger, the positive light pushes through
your organs, tissue and muscles, forcing any leftover stress
out of your body and into the universe to be dispersed. Imagine
the energy pushing up through your chest, neck and head. Then
see the energy pushing downward, through your stomach, hips,
legs and feet. When you have imagined the white light fully encompassing
your entire body, turn your thought to the solar plexus (the
solar plexus is located in the area where the lower part of your
rib cage joins together).
Beginning at the solar plexus, imagine a gold spear of light
moving down your spine. Take the spear in your mind down through
the floor, through the foundation of your house, through the
bedrock, and molten lava until it reaches the pure yellow fire
within the center of the earth. Imagine the end of your gold
spear plugging into the earths core like an electrical cord into
an outlet. Once the connection is made, the grounding yellow
energy from the earth quickly travels up the spear, through the
floor and into your body along the spinal cord. The energy continues
up the spine and out the top of your head reaching far out into
the universe. As you continue this thought for a few moments,
the yellow light from the earth is helping to ground you mentally,
emotionally and physically.
When you're ready to proceed, image a second spear beginning
back at your solar plexus. This time, run the gold spear up your
spine, out the top of your head, through the roof of your house,
through the earths atmosphere and out into the deepest portions
of the universe. Now imagine the white energized light of the
universe attaching itself to your spear, as if it were a lightening
rod. The positive electrical energy quickly travels downward
toward the earth, through the roof top, through your head, down
through your body alongside the spinal cord, reaching down through
the house toward the center of the earth. As you continue this
thought for a few moments, the power of the universe is energizing
your spiritual and physical bodies.
Now the power from the earth, the power from the universe
and your own power of protection mix together and flows freely
up and down your body. As you continue this thought for a few
moments, each external energy is supplementing your own. The
universe and the earth are assisting to balance your energies
to enhance the reading. The earth and sky will also provide you
with the additional amount of energy you may expended during
When you're ready to resume, imagine all this revitalizing
energy pushing out through the confines of your body. As it grows
and moves farther and farther out into the room, all negative
and disruptive energy is being pushed out of your house to the
universe where it will be dispersed. Continue this image until
your entire house is energized with the pure positive energy.
Ask your guide(s) to help protect your house from any negative
or earth bound forces. Ask them to watch over you and the events
of the day, to bless you and keep you safe. Sit for a few more
moments, then when your ready thank your guide(s) and teachers
and close the mediation.
Visualized meditations can be very powerful tools for any
situation. But the important thing to remember is you're not
alone, so ask for help from your guides and teachers, but don't
forget to thank those unseen forces for their assistance.
