How To Meditate A Little Happiness

How To Meditate A Little Happiness

Imagine the presence of a great warmth that feels utterly nurturing, good, and peaceful. See it as the most beautiful color or colors that you can imagine.

Notice your emotions.

  • What color or colors are they?
  • What shapes do they make?

Notice your thoughts.

  • Again, what colors are they?
  • What shapes do they have?

Notice the energies of your physical body.

  • Where are they moving?
  • Where are they not?

Try slightly adjusting the way that you are sitting and see if your energies move more freely in your body.

  • Notice how the planet feels, both the earth under your feet, and the sky all around.
  • What does the Great Mother, the earth itself, wish to say to you?

Go back now to your body.

  • Find a place of tension in it that has something to say to you, and ask what that is.
  • When you are done, take a deep breath, let it out, and then take another.
  • Let that tension go.

Remember a happy feeling from the past, or imagine one now.

  • If you like, tie it to a scene or image.
  • Feel the feeling. Be in the middle of it.
  • Let the happiness of that feeling fill you full and overflow beyond you, filling the room.
  • Imagine sharing it with loved ones, and receiving their happiness as well.
  • Continue exploring this happiness. If it has a color and shape, see it; if it has movement, feel it.
  • Ask it to open itself to you, so that you can be a part of it.
