Meditation for Grounding and Self Protections

A Reiki Master once shared this meditation with me many years ago - and I've used it ever since in my classes. Especially if people are feeling vulnerable, anxious or unsettled.  It is so beautiful with great visualisation, I do hope you enjoy it.

Find a quiet space.

Sit comfortably - but makesure that your back is straight.

Take a few deep breaths.

As you breath in, imagine, see or feel, that you are breathing in cleansing energy. As you breath out, let go of pain, tension and anything that does not serve you well. The more you breath in, the more you are filled with this cleansing energy. The more you breath out, the more you let go of what you really do not need.

While you keep breathing, imagine, see or feel, a beautiful white light, coming down from Mother/Father God, Source, Great Spirit, Creator, The Infinite, All That Is, and entering your crown chakra. This white light starts to flow into your body. It flows through your head, down both arms and into your hands, right to the very tips of your fingers. It flows into your chest, down through your abdomen, into your hips, then down both legs to your feet, right to the very tips of your toes. Filling all of you with healing white light.

Now imagine, see or feel, that at the soles of your feet you have roots. These roots are there to keep you grounded, to give you a firm connection from which to work from. Spread your roots wide and deep into Mother Earth. Send them down to the very core of the Earth,
