Find a quiet place.  A sacred space where you feel calm and peaceful. A place where you will not be disturbed.

Sit or lie in a comfortable position. Spine straight, arms and legs uncrossed. Take a few long, slow deep breaths. Feel yourself beginning to relax…

Close your eyes…

Imagine you are connected from the heart to whatever is the source of Highest Good for you…

Similarly ground yourself deep into the core of the Earth…

Let go of all thoughts, focusing only on your breath. In and out in a natural rhythmic cycle…

Slowly lengthen and deepen the breath, relaxing more and more deeply…

With each out breath imagine your body releasing stress. Feel your muscles softening…

Feel yourself sinking deeper and deeper into the surface on which you are resting…

If there are any aches and pains, or areas of dis-ease in your body, gently breathe into them to soften and release the tension…

Go deep within, into the heart space where Love resides. Feel the energy it contains. Breathe it into your total Being…

Surround yourself with it…

Immerse yourself in it…

Send it to every cell in your body. Into every fibre and molecule of your being…

Feel it filling you up so you are totally saturated, within and without, in the Unconditionally Loving energy…

Stay in that heart-centred space for as long as you wish…

Empty your Self of all fears, grief, pain, despair, loss whilst you are there…

Ask that it be changed into Love energy and returned back to fill those spaces from whence it was discharged…

Give thanks for the experience in which you have been immersed. Know that you can return to it anytime, anywhere, as often as you like…

When you are ready to leave the heart space, bring yourself back to the present  moment slowly and gently…

Gradually become aware of your body.  The surface on which it is resting. The sounds and the smells of your quiet space in which you rest. When you are ready, open your eyes and wriggle your fingers and toes.

Steps for Peace

 “Make up your mind that no matter
what comes your way,
no matter how difficult,
no matter how unfair,
you will do more than simply survive.
You will thrive in spite of it.” —Joel Osteen

This is a re-working of the meditation script I  posted in December 2015 about resilience and courage
