Many people these days have learned the value of taking time out to pray or meditate even if they don’t adhere to any traditional religion. The following simple meditation can be of value whether you are one of those people or new to the concept.
Set aside some time – it need only be five minutes – find a place where you are unlikely to be disturbed and settle comfortably. A chair the right height for your feet to be flat on the ground and your back supported works well.
Preferably close your eyes but if that makes you feel self conscious then light a candle or set a picture or other object to gaze at.
Imagine a flower bud on the brink of opening. The sun shines down on it. It absorbs light. Heat. Energy.
Gradually the petals start to unfurl. Feel the sunshine on each newly opened petal until every one lies spread to the rays. The inner secrets of the flower ripe for opportunity.
Now, imagine you heart or soul as that flower bud basking in the rays of divine love.
Allow the petals of your heart to open one by one; to unfurl and absorb, receive that love. Accept the light, the energy.
Receive, absorb, open until your inmost being is revealed and you know what it is to truly live this moment.
How often do you take time to engage with your inner self?
Do you know your true purpose for being?
