The day may be well planned but surely many additional requests will be made of our time. As the minutes pass, the To Do List grows. We tend to bite off more than we can chew, then we self loathe for not solving the world’s problems single-handed. If only the days were a bit longer!
When feeling pulled in so many directions that you don’t know where to begin, step out of it. Walk away from it. Get outdoors. If that is not possible, find yourself a safe place where you can calmly close your eyes and focus on the following meditation.
Here’s how to practice self healing in a pinch:
Grab some crystals. You are probably wearing your favorites right now! Bracelets and necklaces are ideal for this exercise. Don’t have access to crystals at the moment? No problem, you can substitute with tiny stones, leaves, or anything that you can get your hands on which feels good to the touch. Think high vibrating items of nature, nothing man-made.
Venture outdoors. Sit in a comfortable place. Sunlight is divine, if you can catch some rays please do so. Can’t go outside? You’ll know best where you can receive the peace and quiet necessary.
Once you are seated, close your eyes and breathe. Your thoughts may still be racing. Try to release them. Know that once you are centered that To Do List will be handled. This is your time to connect with the universe.
The earth loves you dearly. Feel its pull on your body, the gentle connection between you and the ground. You may even see it in your mind’s eye. You can also feel the earth’s pull indoors, just set the intention to accept its healing energy.
Take your crystals or natural objects in your hands. One by one hold an item and think only of it. Use your mind to listen for messages from the object. Really feel it with your fingers and watch the images sent to you from the object. These psychic impressions are the core of this quick self healing meditation, as they break the chaotic trance of your day and replace it with a form of Earthing (connecting with “the mother energy” which spiritually cleanses empaths).
Here is an example of a day during which deep spiritual cleansing and healing was desired. (From a post written in 2017 while I was still using "smart" devices and social media. I've since released myself from those sorts of soul traps.) Earlier I had a busy day planned, but as usual my To Do List became overwhelming. Social concerns “slimed” me, that super heavy feeling of other people’s drama. Eeesh! Adding stress to the mix, political and environmental issues of negative effect weighed on my heart. Time to unplug! I logged out of my business site although intriguing emails and exciting incoming orders tempted me to alter my plans. I said See Ya to Facebook and Pinterest where I had gotten in too deep. I accepted the fact that yoga and the two CDs for guided meditations which I intended to complete would have to wait until this evening. Maybe I wouldn’t even get to all of that today. Same goes for chores, time to step away and get outdoors.
I sat on a bench in the sun. My thoughts continued to plaque me but one by one I did release them. I felt the earth under my feet and her delicate pull of gravity on my being. This connection slowly set things right. The sun washed away all of my concerns. I gained strength and confidence. I knew all was well in my world.
I make jewelry, just simple bracelets and necklaces made of crystal beads. Today I wore moonstone, kyanite, citrine, fluorite, chalcedony, amethyst and aragonite. Lucky me! Eyes closed, I began my meditation. One by one I held a bead between my fingers and waited for messages. Each crystal sent me images, and some had things to say. The aragonite showed me the sea and seashells. Kyanite demonstrated a high stone wall around me, protecting my aura from the nonsense happening in today’s ridiculous world. Citrine shared images of sunlight and a fantastic sensation of deep, satisfying joy. Amethyst whispered its own name. The experience was fascinating! I became instantly rejuvenated, ready to try again, but from a balanced and centered state of mind.
No longer reeling from world events, customer requests, family obligations or the weight of household chores, I am now willing to get started on that To Do List with fresh eyes and a blissful heart!
