On this 2023 Christmas Eve I offer you a heart opening meditation in the hope you will practice it regularly. By so doing not only will it open your hearts, it will also help you to heal your mind of discord.
At the beginning of each new day, intend to be the Bringer of Light and the Bringer of Love by filling your hearts with love and, in order to allow Great Spirit to move through you to bring joyful experiences, calm your mind and emotions. I suggest you find a quiet spot in which to mediate and gently close your eyes. Intend to relax. Begin a process of meditative breathing.
Inhale slowly and deeply to the count of four, with full focus of attention on your breath.
Exhale slowly to the count of eight, with full focus of attention on your breath. Say slowly to yourself- “I am relaxing my body and mind. I am inhaling the breath of life, of life force energy”.
Repeat the process four more times.
With sincerity, intend to fuel your internal spaces within your body and mind with greater light and love, and to open your heart to the experience/feeling of divine love.
Know that you are capable of giving and receiving divine love. Bring your focused attention on your heart. Breathe slowly and deeply into your heart. Feel the slow breath calming your emotions.
In your mind, invoke a person or animal you love so much to enter into your heart. Imagine sharing open-heartedly your love for her/him or it. Give and give your love and sincere gratitude to that being. Thank that person or animal for coming into your life. Communicate honestly your feelings of love and gratitude until you feel complete.
Decide to also give your self-created loving energy to those you encounter during the day. Imagine this love-filled light streaming out from within your heart and mind as a river of love-light moving ahead of you to touch and surround whoever you encounter. As you transmit your love-filled light realise how this creates a warm, sometimes tingly feeling in your heart, as if your heart is expanding. Know this energy will uplift those you meet.
As your mind and body experiences peace, calm and harmony, consciously, and with a joyful heart, share your self-generated vibrations of love and Light to brighten other’s lives. Inhale this understanding.
Know you can always lovingly self-create the same experience whenever you choose. Exhale to share it. Repeat the process.
When feeling complete, slowly bring yourself back into present time, feeling your feet on the ground. Imagine you have invisible roots emerging from your feet, wrapping around the iron core of Mother Earth, anchoring you to her. This is a grounding process.
Focus on your feet and this grounding process until you feel ready to open your eyes. Choose to be a beacon of light. Intend to share your love and light to whoever you encounter on Christmas Day and many other days that follow.
May your hearts and minds be filled with the peace that passeth all understanding and the joy and love of the Christ Child as you celebrate the 2023 Christmas Day.
May you open your minds and hearts to receive and integrate these messages, and allow the love guiding them to fuel your daily life,
Blessings and Love,
