Words are complicated. Language was developed to increase cooperation, to allow for communal work and living, to create opportunities for togetherness and understanding. However, words do not adequately convey the heart's desires. No. The heart speaks a language of its own and it needs no words. Nonverbal communication, verbal cues convey much more than words can. Words can create confusion, misunderstanding, conflict and hurt feelings. Words, conveyed via text messages, without face-to-face interaction can be misunderstood and create unnecessary problems.
Stay centered. Keep your energy focused at your heart center. Feel it soften, open, allow it to breathe. Feel your feet on the Earth, your body resting, being supported by the beautiful Earth energy. Welcome red vibrant deep rich energy, the energy of passion, of well being of life. Appreciate your physical body. Thank it. Notice your breath. Listen to and feel your heart beat. Become aware of the blood flowing through your veins, your lungs circulating freshly oxygenated prana, or life force energy. Thank your organs and all of the systems of your body.
Notice your mind, your head. Imagine nothing but white clean, pure light. Let that light clean and clear away darkness, negativity, clutter, and blockages that keep your thoughts looped in replaying the past or chronically compulsing about the future. Sit in the glowing white light and feel it refresh, neutralize, and purify your head. It is now clean, clear, and settled. Be mindful to keep this room pure, to take notice of what enters this space. Once you have created a pure, white clean space, try to keep it that way. When in doubt, breathe, bring your energy down to your heart and listen. Feel the energy below the heart, in the solar plexus, in the belly. If it feels settled, at ease; stay there. Continue to listen. You will receive clear messages. If you feel unsettled, continue watching your breath. Simply observe. Bring a deep rich green color into the heart center. Stay there. Fill up with this healing green color. Oxygenate your cells. Feed them. Nurture them. Intentionally spread this loving healing rich green color into your veins, deeply into your bone marrow, drink it up and down your spine. Absorb it. Feel it. See it. Allow it.
Stay deeply saturated and surrendered to this deep dark rejuvenating, restorative state of being, of receiving. Welcome this open-hearted state of receptivity. Stay here. Receive. Fill. Offer loving kindness to yourself. Offer gratitude. Continue speaking lovingly, gently, filling your physical body with love, with support, with kindness, with respect, with approval, with affirmation. Notice any sensations in your body, notice any texture, any tingling, warmth, coolness. Allow it.
Stay here. Breathe.
Now flood yourself and others in loving words. Words of hope, of togetherness, of prosperity, of abundance, of forgiveness. Speak to yourself with words of gratitude. Do this for one full minute. We can start speaking positive affirmations together as a group, then continue this gratitude offering on your own for one minute. I am grateful for this body, for my breath, for these eyes that see, for this ground that supports and holds my weight, for the opportunities to learn, to grow, to evolve, to smell, to laugh, to cry, to celebrate. I appreciate and love myself. I approve of myself and accept all that has been and realize that it has been necessary for my evolution, for my realization of who I am becoming. I am beautiful. I am light. I am willing and loving. I am strong in the realization that it's o.k. To be weak. I am vulnerable. I am imperfect. I accept who I am fully and unconditionally. I see all that has been, not as good or bad, but as what has been necessary to bring me to here and now.
Continue flowing in this stream of positivity. As you recite loving affirmations and offer gratitude, create loving images, envision places that feel safe and beautiful. Feel sensations that ignite your heart and stir your senses. Imagine sounds that soothe and heal, smells that evoke emotions. Stay here and simply be. Receive. Allow. Without censoring, without judgment.
Now completely let go of all thought, of any need to use the mind. Thank it for its service. For the mind simply wants to assist. It needs gentle guidance. For without guidance, it will spin out of control and get pulled by the dominant negative chatter of the collective. Conscious mindful awareness alerts us when the mind has wandered. If you're feeling anxious or uneasy, it's a cue to return to your breath, to your core, to your heart and simply breathe. Simply notice. Stay. Allow. Notice. Without judgment.
Give yourself permission now for your mind to wander. Wander the halls of your life. Allow your mind to drift, to take you into the hallways of your past, imagine, envision the path towards your future. Allow. Float. Daydream. Don't spend too much time stuck on any one memory or thought. Simply notice it. Greet it. See it for what it was. Thank that experience and let your mind drift into the next place . . . let it be. Witness. Observe. Be curious.
The mind is curious and needs permission to wander. Allow it to wander intentionally, for if allowed to wander without permission, it tends to misguide, to protect, and to keep you fearful. Instead, stay centered, fully anchored from your core. Acknowledge that all is well. Allow yourself to let go and see what presents. Be playful. Be trusting. Be observant.
