In this meditation you will create a safe and sacred space using the breath to direct spiritual energy.
Make yourself comfortable in a chair with your feet flat on the floor and your back straight. Imagine you have a string of pearls running from the top of your head to the base of your spine. Sit so that these pearls are straight, one above the other.
Take a few deep breaths in and out and bring your awareness away from the day and focus only on the sensation of the breath moving in and out of your lungs. Don’t take breaths that are deeper than you are comfortable with and don’t hold the breath for any longer than you feel is right. This is not a test, you should be relaxed.
With the next breath out imagine you are pushing a cord of energy down, out of the base of your spine and reaching down into the centre of the earth. Take as many breaths as you need until you feel it has reached that point.
When you are ready, using the in breath pull the energy from the centre of the earth up through the same cord up into your heart and feel it filling up the area of your body behind your sternum.
When you are happy with this, again with the out breath, push that energy out of your heart area and imagine it is creating a shield like “half bubble” in front of you. Spend some time working with this, breathing in and drawing the energy up from the centre of the earth and then pushing it out in front of you as you breath out.
Next we are going to repeat the process but reach up to the central sun in the middle of the galaxy. So, when you are ready take a deep breath and as you breath out send another cord up out of the top of your head and reach right up into space. Take as many slow and gentle breaths as you need to get there but imagine it connecting to an infinite source of golden white light energy.
As with the earth energy, using the in breath, draw the energy from the sun down into your heart and again see it filling the area behind your sternum. Spend some time focusing on this and connecting to the energy.
With the out breath, push this energy out of the area between your shoulder blades again imagining it forming a “half bubble”. Take as many breaths as you need to do this and imagine it meeting the half bubble you created in front of you so that now you are sitting in a complete bubble of light.
With the in breath draw the energy up from the centre of the earth and down from the sun and as you breath out direct it out of the front and back of your body filling the bubble. Spend time sending your awareness around the bubble. Make sure it reaches below your feet and at least 12″ above your head. It should be evenly spaced all around you with no areas nearer or further away from you. Pay close attention to it behind you as it is easy for it to be very close to you.
Now you have created a safe and sacred space you can take anywhere with you. Imagine it is flexible so that when you stand up it becomes like a capsule that travels with you wherever you go.
If you want to add a layer of protection to this imagine a pot of colour being poured over it so it leaves a glistening shell of colour with no gaps, just like a smartie. Violet is a nice gentle transmuting colour, pink is for love and silver white is for purity.
When you have practiced this a few time you should be able to do it wherever you are, just spending a few moments to tune in and draw the energy to you.
