Guided Meditation: Experiencing Light and Life

             We are now ready to practice another meditation. We are learning to experience the flow of energy in our body from toe to head.  We are seeking to be completely flowing and balanced.  This meditation can be done in three ways.  In the first method, you read through this section of the book and note the techniques used.  Then you may mentally repeat the process and experience the meditation.  Second, some may find it effective to tape record the guided instructions and play them back during the meditation.  Finally; you may do this meditation with a partner or group in which one person acts as the guide and takes the others through the meditation.     

             The purpose of this meditation is to experience the flow of light which is moving in your body and to enable you to realize youo real nature.  If you practice this meditation, you will be able to heal your body with this light, with this concentration and with this awareness.  Before you start this meditation, you have to put yourself in a completely flowing mood and feel all the parts of your body relax.  You select you posture, either sitting or lying down, close your eyes, and relax completely.  The methods described in the earlier chapters of this book will help you achieve this.  As you are guided through your body and each part is mentioned, you must try to visualize light in that part.  As you feel that light is slowly and gently moving in your body you will have a deep experience of peace and a deep experience of healing.  You will realize there is a beautiful positive energy which is engulfing you, soothing you and giving you a unique gentle touch which is full of healing and peacefulness.
