Consciously Creating Meditation for the New Year
By Shelly Wilson
Take a moment to just BE. Sit in a chair with your back straight and your palms up open to receiving. Close your eyes. Relax. Breathe in deeply and exhale. Imagine yourself in the most beautiful tranquil place. This is your safe haven, your nirvana, your paradise. Your senses are heightened as you conceptualize this utopia.
You may have opted to imagine yourself in a winter wonderland. Walking in the gently fallen snow, you discover a frozen pond and reminisce of days gone by. Bundled warmly yet feeling the coolness on your face, you turn upwards as the snowflakes continue to fall and glisten in the sunlight. As you smile and relish in this moment, it is time to ground your energy.
Envision tree roots coming up through your feet and a vine wrapping around your legs. This vine is extending upwards into your root chakra, moving up into your sacral chakra, moving up and extending into your solar plexus chakra and resting in your heart chakra grounding you in Mother Earth. Now, envision white light from Source consciousness coming in through your crown chakra, down into your third eye chakra, down into your throat chakra, and meeting with Mother Earth energy at your heart chakra. You are grounded to Earth and to Light.
Be mindful of your breaths. Feel your chest expand with the inhalations. Feel your chest deflate with the exhalations. Feel the love you have within you. Allow the essence of you to unfold and surround you.
This beautiful Divine energy surrounds your being. Allow it to envelop you fully. Open your heart to love. Be thankful for this moment and every moment. Allow this gratitude and love to flow freely through you and around you as you simply breathe.
Affirm ~ “My heart overflows with gratitude and joy. I am conscious of being present in this moment. I recognize that I am a creator, and I am creating my reality. I am allowing myself to simply breathe. I am surrendering to the Universe anything and anyone that no longer serves me or my Higher purpose. I am releasing it now fully and completely. I choose to create my life and all of its experiences consciously”.
