Thoughts can weigh us down like the mighty cumulonimbus cloud or lift us up like the wispy cirrus cloud. Beyond the clouds in the sky lie vast blue sky and beyond the thoughts in our mind lies a vast space of creativity. In this profound meditation, Nitima has us go beyond the thoughts in our mind by visualizing ourselves on a plane climbing above the clouds in the sky. While above the clouds, we create space in our body and mind as the golden light of the sun fill us up.
Visualizing myself on a plane, I got comfortable in my window seat. Hearing the pilot say to the flight attendants, get ready for takeoff, I made sure I was buckled in. As the engine accelerated speed down the runway, my stomach filled with anticipation as I watched I the airport buildings stream on by. Then, the moment I had been anticipating finally came, Liftoff! With some G forces occurring in my stomach, I began to climb up into the sky. Looking down at the airport, the buildings got smaller and smaller. It wasn’t long before I felt some turbulence and saw my obscured by clouds that had engulfed the airplane. Soon, the turbulence ended and the vast blue sky appeared.
Rising above the clouds, I felt the warmth of the sun on my skin. Breathing in this warmth from the sun, my body and mind filled with a beautiful sense of peace and clarity. Creating space, I aligned my body and mind.
In this space, I began thinking of people whom have shown kindness to me. Thinking of what these beautiful people did for my beautiful boy, Montee and I a few days ago, made my heart swell with thankfulness. While the news I received wasn’t pleasant, I am grateful for finding out some answers. Finding out some answers created space. Rising above the heaviness of thoughts, I have clarity in the here and now. Creating space, I have raised my vibrations to focus on the best solutions rather than just the issues. Thank you, Nitima for a profound visualization meditation! Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
