This meditation is useful for a variety of reasons. If you are feeling off-centre or ungrounded, flighty or ‘spun-out’, ie., feeling overworked, unable to focus on a task, unable to complete tasks, constantly thinking of other things you could/should be doing while doing something else, this method of meditation will definitely be useful to you.
For those of you who are familiar with the “Cutting Cords” meditation, you will understand that this meditation will enhance that one. Not only are you centering and grounding yourself, you are adding a protection to keep those energy cords from coming back.
It is especially important when you are working on growing your own psychic gifts or just working to enhance your intuition, or ‘gut feelings’. When you meditate you put yourself into an altered state and are much more receptive. You need to trust what information you get in your meditations. If you practice meditation regularly, you will find that even when you are not meditating, you are still able to ‘tune in’ to this deeper you.
To begin this meditation, you first need to be comfortable. Start this meditation by sitting in a comfortable chair with your feet flat on the floor. Breathe very deeply. As you inhale, see yourself breathing in fresh, new, life-giving oxygen. Imagine the white light and life-force entering your body and giving you life, sustaining your life…
As you exhale, see yourself breathing out any negative or old energy or feelings. Imagine this to be black smoke leaving your nostrils.
Breathe like this for a few minutes, all the while becoming very aware of your body. Imagine each part of your body. Start with your feet, become aware of your legs, torso, upper body, arms and head. If you feel blocks in any of these areas, release them in the black smoke.
Once all is clear, then imagine that you have roots coming out of your feet. Have the roots go very deep into Mother Earth and wrap around a rock or something deep in the earth. Ask Mother Earth if you may ground to her and use her energy to protect yourself. Remember to thank her.
Now imagine a yellow/amber light coming up your ‘roots’. Have the light come all the way up your roots and into your body, first your feet, up your legs, through your torso, up to your neck down your arms and into your head. Feel the loving energy of this light all through you. Have it be a part of you. This light and energy helps to ground you, much like a tree has roots.
After you have brought in all that loving energy and light and you are grounded, it is time to protect yourself. First, you will need to pull in all of your scattered energies – anywhere that you have left your energy, just gently take it back into yourself. You will also need to lovingly cut the cords to anyone that may be taking energy from you. This way you ensure that when you put protection around yourself you have all of your energy inside and no one else’s.
Once your energy is clear, you can put a protection around you. This ‘protection’ is simply to make sure that you are not throwing your energy away, nor are others able to zap your energy from you.
There are several ways to do this. Do what feels most comfortable for you. You can put something like a beaker or a jar around you. Or, one of the methods I use when I’m not needing to do it quickly, is you can bring the light out from your body by about 6 inches. See the light resonating out from your body. You can then put chain mail (like on a knight’s armour), all around the light at the 6 inch point. Use whatever protection that you feel is the best for you. Remember to protect your whole body – do your back, bum, and back of your head etc.
You need to do a protection meditation like this when you are working on your energies. When you go into a meditation and are in an altered state, you want to make sure that you are protected, and that nothing but positive things come through for you, and also that you don’t end up walking around with other people’s energy attached to you. If you are going to allow for help from the other side for yourself, then state that anyone who comes through to help must come from God, or they are not welcome.
Meditations can be a great source of energy. Whether you have the time to do a prolonged 30 minute meditation two times a day, or just a brief meditation when you find the time, you will find that doing any type of meditation will help to the degree that you practice it.
