Often I teach people how to be still and ground their energy, but in order to balance our lives, we also need to expand our energy and open the gateway to our highest potential.
How do we do this? By visioning and opening our minds and learning how to expand out of our comfort zones.
In stillness, we tap into our wisdom and inner knowing, which is based on love and infinite possibilities, rather than on fear and scarcity.
One of the major reasons we distract ourselves from the gift of expansion and vision, is our insistence or perhaps our stubbornness, to only see what we expect, or what we want to see; rather than what is actually here.
A Meditation to Expand
Sit quietly inside or outside in nature
Take some slow deep breaths in and out
Relax your shoulders, relax your body
Close your eyes
Imagine you are a tree
A large old oak tree
Focus on the roots of this old oak tree and imagine these strong roots are the base of your spine running deeply down into Mother Earth
Feel this connection and strong foundation within you
Breathe deeply in this space
Now imagine your energy is moving up the tree
Imagine your body, your arms, your neck and head are lifting up to the top of the tree and out through the branches
Feel your energy move beyond the tree and into the sky, sun, stars and beyond
Stay here and feel this expansion in you
Take a few minutes to bring yourself back to this moment, in the room or outside
Open your eyes, note how you feel.
