Question to ask oneself: What do I need to clear out of my life?
You will need your favorite Selenite Crystal to hold during this crystal meditation.
Place Selenite in the palm of your hands (along with Smokey Quarts and Black Tourmaline in another hand if you require some grounding from other higher vibrating crystals)
Find a quiet place for yourself for the next few moments and take a comfortable seat.
Begin by taking three deep cleansing breaths – in through your nose while you expand your belly and out through your mouth. On your last exhale gently close your eyes.
As you continue to breathe at your own pace, notice if you are holding any tension in your body. Do a quick scan from the top of your head, behind your eyes, down through your throat, to your chest, your navel, down to your sit bones, and down through your feet. If find yourself carrying any tension, take a deep breath in and as you exhale let your body soften.
Now imagine that you’re sitting on a chair, in the middle of an empty room and you see an open box just ahead of you. Now take any thoughts, worries, to-do lists that might be consuming your mind right now and gently send them into the box. As you do this, notice if you are feeling lighter. You may even feel as though a little more space has been created in your mind.
If at any point you have any thoughts pop up, know that it is completely normal and ok. Instead of reacting to the thought – simply notice it. No need to give it any energy. Thoughts will pass if we do not give it the energy to grow.
As you return your consciousness to sitting in the chair, you notice a ball of white light forming above your head. Take a deep breath to feel this clearing light above you.
Now picture this ball of white light moving down through your entire body and down through the earth. Take a deep breath as you feel a sense of focus and freshness.
The brilliant white light comes back up into your feet and moves through your body and shoots out of the top of your head – washing away any worries or concerns. Take a deep breath as you feel a sense of clarity and lightness.
Now imagine a white bubble of light that forms all around you – this is your zone of focus. Your sacred space of most clarity. You come here whenever you begin to worry about something; the white light absorbs the worry and transmutes this energy into positive life energy which allows you to continue on your day with a deep sense of trust. Take three deep breaths and on your last exhale let out a big sigh. Enjoy the release of any pressure and worry.
You start to wiggle your toes, gently move your fingers and bring awareness to your eyelids. Once you’re ready you blink your eyes and return to your space, ready to enjoy the rest of your day, and knowing with a few deep breaths you can return to this place of feeling clear and focused.
