Last Saturday, we had a wonderful visualization meditation. The theme was spiritual: I am at peace. I was inspired to take people through a beautiful journey of visualizing. It happened in three phases.
1. First, I invited everyone to think of a moment in the past when they were completely peaceful. They were invited to envision it in every detail.
2.Then just like sliding a screen, I asked the participants to imagine a situation in the future when they are experiencing peace. Perhaps, a serene place in nature where they feel at complete peace.
3. Then, I asked everyone to bring up a new scene as if in a movie. In this scene they are to visualize all their projects, their dreams, their aspirations becoming real. They are with the people they love, in the place that inspires them and they feel at complete ease.
Then, everyone was asked to make a quick summary of all that they visualized and bead the three scenes together as if in a bead necklace. Then, they were to let this necklace go...on a body of water. And as it floated away, we detach from it all and know that the dreams we just created are becoming true.
This was such a beautiful meditation to do. There was wonderful feedback from Rod who shared how he enjoyed how I beaded the three scenes together. It enabled him to reconnect with the beautiful places he had been to and to connect with his childhood.
An amazing surprise was that Rod offered to play some music. So we were all blessed with a beautiful piece of flute music. It felt as if it as resonating across the valleys and dancing through the mountains. It was really special.
Saturday morning meditations have become such a lovely part of my life. And I enjoy connecting with people and sharing the moments of visualizing a world of peace and harmony, starting with our own internal peace. I believe that the external follows the internal. So when we begin clearing and releasing from within, our external world follows suit.
Visualizations are a beautiful and a powerful way to go about changing the world for the better, starting with our self.
