A few wees ago, I felt guided to listen to The Golden Thread guided meditation every day for 40 days.
I created this meditation a few years ago (it's the first one I made!), and I play it from time to time, but this was the first time I got a specific message about it: try it for 40 days in a row and see what happens.
I wasn't sure why, except for the knowing that doing something for 40 days can be a sacred and life changing experience.
Now that I'm half way through it, I'm starting to understand what this is doing for me.
Usually, when people play this meditation they have a vivid dream, either right after playing it or after a few listens. I'm 20 days in, and although I've had interesting dreams thus far, last nights' was one that really told me something special was happening. In the dream I had traveled somewhere else, somewhere I can't recall, only that it wasn't where I live.
I had two choices: go back to where I was and what I had been doing, or follow whales as they swam around the earth.
When I saw the whales I knew instantly, I would follow them, and I did. Watching them swim and traveling through the oceans was the most beautiful, open, free and happy dream I've had in a long time.
I believe part of the reason this meditation creates vivid and interesting dreams is because the imagery works on very deep levels of the psyche. There is the conscious experience you have while you play it, what you feel in your body, and then there are subconscious things happening that unfold and reveal themselves over time.
The meditation guides you to look up to see a large white cloud. Hanging from the bottom of the cloud is a beautiful golden thread. The thread comes down from the sky, weaves through your entire body, and then drops into the soil, spreading out like roots. This is a very calming and serene experience, and one that will help you to feel supported and highly energized in the present moment.
Cozy up in your favorite sweater and relax to this special seasonal meditation.
This meditation is both a powerful chakra healing tool and a means of surrendering. It will take you through an energy exercise that will bring healing and balance into your first three chakras. These lower chakras are deeply connected to the rhythms of the earth. Working with the energy of fall to heal and balance them will naturally restore harmony with your own inner rhythms.
Along with this, you will go through a soul soothing visualization exercise for letting go.
This exercise uses the visuals of falling leaves and a river. After it's done, you will feel lighter and more at peace. Your meditation will end with a final healing exercise, which will prepare you to go forward energized and open to beautiful new things.
This meditation comes with an abridged version.
This ten minute Fall Meditation will allow you to let go when you have less time or less energy for the full. You won't go through the chakra healing exercise, but you will still experience the healing power of fall and surrendering.
