MEDITATION

Sit in a comfortable position, feet firmly on the ground and your hands resting gently in your lap. Take a deep breath and then exhale, breathing out all the tension in your body. Feel all of your muscles relax.

Now feel that your feet have roots and that those roots are burrowing deep down into the soil. See those roots reach deeper and deeper into the warm golden light that is the centre of the earth. Feel that warmth penetrate your roots. Feel this warm energy rise up through your legs, up through your body and on up through your head. Feel this energy spill out of the top of your head and cascade back to the earth in a never-ending cycle.

You feel yourself leave your body and enter a cool white mist. As you journey through this mist you feel it becoming warmer and darker. As you continue on further, the air around you becomes quite hot and dark.

You find yourself inside a dark building made of large stone blocks. Ahead of you, you see a dimly lit set of stairs. When you reach the stairs, you see that they are going up and that there seems to be a bright light at the top. As you walk up the stairs, you notice images painted on the walls.

On reaching the top of the stairs, you look out and are struck by the bright light and the heat! You realise that it is the sun burning brightly down. Everywhere you look there is sand, sand and more sand. At the moment you are shielded from the sun’s direct rays by the building you are in. This building you notice, casts a triangular shadow.

You walk out to have a better look at this building, and you realise it is a pyramid, and looking down at yourself, you realise that you are in dressed in ancient Egyptian clothing. You realise that you are now in ancient Egypt and that the sun is very hot.

Suddenly there is a large shadow protecting you from the sun’s rays, and you see that it is man-like. As the figure gets smaller and comes nearer, you notice it is a golden-skinned man, dressed in royal clothing. But when you try to look at his face, you see that he has a falcon’s head instead.

He tells you that his name is RA and you realise it is the Sun God himself who stands in front of you, so you show your reverence. He takes your hand and tells you that he has come to show you the wonders of Egypt. I will leave you now with RA for a short while and call you back when it is time.

RA tells you that it is time for you to return from whence you came. RA leads you back to the entrance of the pyramid and as you enter you are momentarily blinded. When your eyes adjust and you start to descend, you realise that the images you saw painted on the walls of the stairway are of your time today with RA. You see a white mist ahead of you on the stairs, and as you enter it, its coolness comes as a shock to you after the heat of the desert.

You move through the cool white mist and soon you are back into this room, back in your bodies, wriggle your fingers and toes and stretch your arms, you feel refreshed and invigorated. Open your eyes when you are ready.
