Meditations for Peace

 A Year of Meditation for Positive Change.

Each full moon, sit for a half hour or so and meditate on ways to create positive change, for yourself and beyond yourself.

If you can sit at midnight, in your time zone, you'll feel the positive energy building in waves to cover the planet!

Note:  We've had some glitches in the web updates.  We hope to have it fixed soon.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

Peace for the Home

This month's meditation is also simple.  Sit quietly in a place you won't be disturbed for approximately 20 minutes.  No music, no cellphones, no electronics.  Pets are fine.

Fill yourself with the feeling of peace you created in last month's meditation.  Imagine the sensation as tangible energy, in whatever color feels right.

Visualize the energy moving out from your body to every nook and cranny in your home, spreading the sensation from attic to basement and everything in between.  Once the entire home is filled with peaceful energy, extend it to the borders of your property.

Hold the sensation in place, without struggling, as long as possible.

Ground and center.

Note how your home and grounds feel over the coming days -- lighter, happier, plants growing better, etc

Peace -- The Word

Our first meditation together is simple.  Sit quietly, in a place you won't be disturbed for approximately 20 minutes.  No music, no phone, no electronics, etc.  Pets are fine -- I find they enhance meditations rather than obstruct it.

Sit quietly and follow your breath.

Focus on the word "peace".  When your mind wanders off trying to define the word, pull it gently back.  Simply focus on the word "peace" and let the sensation of "peace" fill you, chakra by chakra.

Hold that feeling.

If you drift away from it, circle back around so that you complete the full twenty minutes.

Do this at any point you can during the full moon.  If you choose, do it as close to your own midnight as possible (for instance, beginning 10 minutes before midnight and running 10 minutes past midnight).  My previous experience with world-wide midnight meditations is that waves of energy flow through all day long, and one can feel the momentum build.
