ROW YOUR BOAT TOGETHER~~~WISHING YOU LOVE & UNITY in 2017
This meditation was created to bring harmony and other positive shifts in relationships by those who use this over time.
This meditation has been adapted slightly in order to offer you this opportunity to clear patterns of negativity in challenging relationships.
I’m offerring individuals, friends, and family members my support as a neutral, detached observer to make real changes in an important and challening relationship.
As your accountability “coach”, you will receive help to do this meditaiton. You will be guided into the meditation for 25 minutes three days a week on conference call with an agreed upon time for all participants. This is a free service to benefit you and our community.
With consisitency and accountability, the success rate of this type of work increases greatly. We all benefit from positive reinforcement, as well as accountability and support. This is one example of many that can serve you when you decide to dial up on my Free Conference Call and receive a live guided meditation. So far, I’ve had responses from 2 friends who are very committed but cannot begin until JANUARY 2017.
It might take a few days, weeks, or months. Be consistent and watch how changing the inner world creates smoother vibrations within your friendships and other relationships. Okay this is the Guided Visualization:
START HERE TO CREATE CHANGES IN IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIPS:
“Visualize yourself standing in front of a flower garden which is your very own,private, sanctuary, a beautiful representation of your inner virtues.
You enter through an archway covered with magenta bougainvillea. You take a moment to stop at the threshold before entering your enchanted world.
Before you, you see all the flowers you love. Silently, you reach out your hand to touch each flower and take in its essence and fragrance. This connects you with your inner beauty.
You touch the red roses of happiness and love, the pink hibiscus of kindness and compassion, and the white orchids of innocence and purity. In your garden, the blue sky sheds its serenity and peace all around you.
In the center of your garden is a large circle of soft green grass. You lie down on this cool carpet of Mother Nature and let go of all agitation; you feel a deep silence and expansion of your being. Your breathing becomes deep and rhythmic creating a feeling of contentment and perfect safety.
You are ready to bring in the name of someone who you feel conflict with. Recognize the negative thoughts and feelings you have for this person.
From your relaxed and expanded vision, begin to observe this person, calmly. Look beyond the situations that have created upset and look deeply for one good quality in this person. Think of this quality as a flower. Give the flower a name or a color, such as the flower of loyalty or see a beautiful white blossom. Allow your vision to stay on the flower and enjoy how it blossoms before your eyes. This is a new and welcomed addition to your beautiful garden.
As your eyes slowly look around your garden to the arched gateway, the person you were just thinking of walks in. Are you surprised? Not at all. You were expecting him or her. You find it easy to calmly observe him or her as he or she quietly walks aroud, admiring your amazing, exotic inner flower garden.
You are still at a safe viewing distance from this person as you consider if you are ready to see them as a brother or sister soul. If you feel any resistance to this, acknowledge your feelings. Then remind yourself of your own strength and beauty and how this garden is a reflection of your inner goodness and pure feelings.
Choose a blessing or pure intention for this person who is visiting your garden. Visualize this thought as a ray of beautiful, golden light, filled with the warmth and comfort of good feelings, acceptance, love, or any other feeling that naturally and easily comes from your heart.
Your intention is to welcome this person and wish them well. This openess creates the space for forgiveness and for the past to be released and laid to rest.
Visualize this golden ray of light reaching out and touching and encircling this person. Create the thought that this ray of light and the cocoon of light that is being created around this person is removing all the negative feelings between the two of you, creating space for change and newness.
Stay in this beautiful silence for as long as you wish. When you are ready, pick a flower from your garden and walk over and offer it to him or her. He or she graciously receives it and you both walk toward the archway leading out of the garden.
You are happily feeling that your energies have been renewed and that a new level of understanding has been created between the two of you.”
REFLECTION: Creating good wishes for someone else’s happiness, well-being, or success is an incredibly powerful practice. Most of us have to learn how to do this, especially for those who have caused us pain and sorrow and discomfort. Overtime, this practice becomes easier.
The more you focus on your own inner beauty and virtues in this meditation, the easier it will be to allow a natural sense of goodness and well-wishing to arise from the core of your being. This meditation can work like a hot spring that emerges out of the earth, releasing a soft mist of your goodness to surround you and permeate everyone and everything you do.
