After closing my eyes and taking 10 conscious breaths into my belly, I found myself sitting next to a pool of crystal clear water in the middle of a tropical forest. Looking around this magical place, in awe of its spectacular beauty, a smile of gratitude quickly formed on my lips. Down from the heavens above came a white cleansing light to the crown of my head and began purifying my mind. Clearheaded, this cleansing light traveled through the rest of my body, rejuvenating and purifying every organ and cell. Placing my hand over my heart, I thanked it for staying with me through thick and thin, for working tirelessly to keep me alive.
Given moments of silence, I closed my eyes and thought of things I am grateful for. Immediately, my breath, my friends and family and this new day came to mind. Smiling for having this abundance in my life, I thought of things I was excited about. Immediately, opportunities for growth and learning came to mind. Filled with inspiration and gratitude, the white light that had rejuvenated my body reappeared in the form of a shining diamond right in front of me, forming a glittering shield around me. As a gesture of love, I thought of a few people who, for some reason or another, need a boost of this purifying energy and brought them into this circle of light. Seeing their eyes light up, my heart warmed. Filled with metta, gratitude and strength, I am ready to take on my day.
Thank you for this beautiful meditation, Tudor!
