"You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection."
This soul soothing meditation will nourish your spirit and calm your mind. It feels like you're receiving the warmest, most loving hug possible. If you're looking for a way to bring in energy that is gentle, supportive, full of ease and grace, and encourages your spirit to flourish, this will help you. It helps with healing things like anxiety, low self-esteem, feelings of being alone in the world, depression and fear of change.
This meditation is a set, with two lengths included. The abridged version is 15 minutes and ideal for a quick mood lifter or more frequent use. The full version, which is 28 minutes, begins by helping you to let go of all the thoughts, feelings and memories that consume you.
The guidance will assist you with this step with the help of a colorful hot air balloon. By putting everything into this balloon and watching it float up you will be letting it go to your Higher Self. This is followed by a beautiful process that will relax your body from head to toe.
Once you are in a relaxed state, you will begin to visualize the healing cloud forming over you. This is where the abridged version begins. This cloud will deepen your connection to the Universe, wash away unwanted thoughts and feelings, and uplift your entire mind and spirit. You will be nourished on the deepest levels of your soul and psyche with divine love, healing and warm feelings of support.
The background music to this meditation, The Temple Garden, is a soft, soothing piece written by Christopher Lloyd Clarke. The flute in the beginning will help you feel you are going to a sacred and safe place of healing and love. Peaceful wind chimes and bird songs continue throughout the meditation. Gentle rain sounds play in the middle when you wash away all that you're ready to release.
If you have trouble sleeping, try playing the full version of this when you are in bed. Besides the relaxing guidance, there are binaural tones in the music that will help your mind to slow down and effortlessly go into a meditative state.
