To begin our meditation today please make sure you are seated comfortably, with the spine relatively erect. Begin to gently focus on the breath, breathing slowly and rhythmically. Let the nervous system carry the message of relaxation to every organ, muscle, tendon, ligament, bones, skeletal system and cells. Feel the body as it lets go and enters a deep state of relaxation. (pause) Now let us breathe into the emotional body, feeling the emotions become calm like a still lake. (pause) Then let us send our breath to the mind, asking for the busy mind to become quiescent and still. From this place of alignment let us breathe into our heart the color of Scorpio, scarlet red. See this color as a mist that descends into the room and breathe it into your heart. (pause) Feel the heart as it receives this passionate, vibrant energy. Now bring your attention to the crown of your head and imagine the light of the Soul emanating from this ball of light that sits atop your crown chakra. Repeat silently, I am the Soul, and also love am I. Above all else I am will and fixed design. My will is now to lift the lower self into the light Divine. This light I am. Take a few minutes now to contemplate if there is anything in your life that you recognize is in need of transformation? Are you struggling with some issue in your life right now? (pause) Let us consider the words of the Great Presiding One. We rise by kneeling. Are we willing to humble ourselves and say, “I can’t heal this issue on my own, on the level of my personality. I need help with this.” Are we willing? (pause) If so, in your mind’s eye lift that issue, that problem, that struggle, up to the light of the Soul. See yourself lifting it to the area above the crown, then ask the Soul to shine its light on this issue. Ask for a greater understanding, a higher perspective, guidance and reassurance. Then wait, in silence, for insight. (pause)
Now let us remember the second instruction. We conquer by surrendering. What do you need to surrender for this issue to transform? An old way of thinking? A stuck pattern? Your little will? Can you surrender your little will to your greater wisdom? Can you let go of how you think it should all work out and say, “I trust in the greater will of my Soul?” Imagine that Higher Will, the will of your own Soul, pouring into you. Feel it as a verticalness, a feeling of strength, then seize that strength and make it your own.
The last instruction was, we gain by giving up. Can you let go of striving and effort and struggle and just allow the Soul to shine its light on you and remind you of how perfect you already are? Can you let go of trying so hard, and just trust in your Soul to lead you. Can you sink into the knowing that the Soul and the Universe totally support you? Can you rest there?
In closing I’d like you to repeat to yourself silently, this mantram.
May I be at peace
May I be free of suffering
May I remember the beauty, the joy, and the strength of my own true nature.
May I be healed.
May I live my life with ease.
