Make yourself comfortable in a place where you won’t be disturbed.
Close your eyes and focus on your breathing, deep breaths in and long breaths out …
As your world around you dissipates you find yourself on top of a mountain, the ground beneath your feet is covered in lush green grass and scattered with pretty wild flowers. The air is warm, and you feel comfortable.
At the moment the sky is fairly dark, and you realise it is just before day break. You turn slowly around in a circle surveying the land that lies out like a patchwork carpet before you on all sides.
You can just make out the beautiful fields full of crops, grassland filled with wild
flowers and a river winding its way dividing up the land.
You take a deep breath in and feel your lungs filling up with fresh sweet-scented air.
You notice behind you a blanket laid out on the grass with a large picnic hamper beside it. You sit down and open the lid to find it full of delicious looking food and drink. Ready for you to eat and drink whenever you wish.
As you watch, the sun begins to creep up above the horizon, casting a beautiful soft light across the landscape, allowing you to see the scenery in full detail.
You sit quietly watching as the sun gradually lights up the entire scene.
As the sun rises your head fills with thoughts, ideas and new inspirations. You think about each one with a clear and open mind.
As the morning wears on, the sun has now risen to great heights and is shining down from directly above you. It is midday and your mind is filled with more thoughts and ideas, how you can progress from beginnings to put projects into action.
You spend some time looking at the beauty that surrounds you from your mountain top vantage, processing the insights you have been given.
As the sun begins to set behind you, your mind turns to those things that don’t serve you, the issues, patterns and behaviours that you would like to let go of.
Allow the setting sun to take them with it as it begins to dip down again below the horizon.
Eventually you are in the dark light that is dusk. You take one last look around at your view and give thanks to the energy and power of the sun.
When you are ready, slowly come back to this reality. Wriggle your fingers and toes and have a glass of water and something to eat.
Jot down all of the thoughts and insights that you had during
the meditation … and follow them up!
