Finding Inner Peace: Meditation (PART THREE)

MEDITATION 2: Spring Cleaning for the Spotless Mind

Prepare to meditate by readying your space and sitting in your chosen position.As you relax your body, try
not to hold tension- but do not worry yourself with natural muscle
twitches on movements. Feel your toes and fingertips begin to tingle and
become numb, feel the tendons and muscles in your elbows and knees
gently relax. Feel your pelvis and hips open and relax along with your
shoulders and neck muscles. Feel all tension release from the base of
your skull and lower back. feel the relaxation move up each vertebrae of
your spine, on by one, as it supports itself in perfect, natural
alignment. feel your earlobes tingle and numb... feel the same on your
cheeks, jaw muscles, nose, eyes, temples, forehead. Feel that all of the
muscles on your face are fully relaxed. feel the crown of your head
open and relax...

Now visualize entering a massive warehouse. Inside there are rows upon rows of items, stacked up in disarray. Every aisle is filled to the brim. You recognize these to be your own life, your own mind. You see your toys and clothes from childhood, all your current belongings... you seen file cabinets, over flowing with a note for every thought, desire, and decision you have ever made! The scene is overwhelming. at the back of the mess you see a note posted to the wall... you read it and it says.

"I cannot change the past, it is in order"
"If I live well today, the future will follow"
"All I need in life is Family, Love, Food, Water, Air, Spirit and Shelter ... All other things are optional."

Take a moment to think about this... The warehose is now organised, clean, spacious... you have nothing to worry about. you see a broom leaning against a shelf. take it in your hands. think of sweeping it side to side... left to right... try to only think about sweeping... everything else is organized... put away... just sweep... if a thought comes... just sweep it away... left right left right...

When you are finished meditating, feel life reenter each of you limbs. Draw up your "roots". slowly wiggle your toes, fingers and your nose. Allow your eyes to
flutter open. Gently, carefully stand up. Try to maintain your feeling
of content relaxation and inner peace. Your inner mind is now cleansed... to have a longer lasting sense of purity, sweep away "clutter" thoughts throughout each day so you can maintain focus on the things that matter to you... BLESSED BE!

Meditation 3: TRANQUILITY

Prepare to meditate by readying your space and sitting in your chosen position.As you relax your body, try
not to hold tension- but do not worry yourself with natural muscle
twitches on movements. Feel your toes and fingertips begin to tingle and
become numb, feel the tendons and muscles in your elbows and knees
gently relax. Feel your pelvis and hips open and relax along with your
shoulders and neck muscles. Feel all tension release from the base of
your skull and lower back. feel the relaxation move up each vertebrae of
your spine, on by one, as it supports itself in perfect, natural
alignment. feel your earlobes tingle and numb... feel the same on your
cheeks, jaw muscles, nose, eyes, temples, forehead. Feel that all of the
muscles on your face are fully relaxed. feel the crown of your head
open and relax...

Visualize a green, healthy, garden. In the center of the garden is a large platform with a fountain and a clean daybed with a soft, white gauze canopy over it. A cool breeze passes through the canopy. You hear the gentle sound of the water trickling down the fountain, and the breeze flowing through the leaves. You lie down in the daybed, it is soft and confortable. The sun casts a warm glow throught the gauze above you. Each time a distracting thought comes by the wind whispers "tranquility" and it blows away with the breeze...You breath in and out deeply and all is serene...as you lie there all your surroundings begin to fade away so that only peacefulness remains... You think " i am at peace"

When you are finished
meditating, feel life reenter each of you limbs. Draw up your "roots".
slowly wiggle your toes, fingers and your nose. Allow your eyes to
flutter open. Gently, carefully stand up. Try to maintain your feeling
of content relaxation and inner peace. Any time you feel stressed or need to "get away" return to your tranquility garden. Go on about your day as normal... BLESSED BE!
