What does meditation feel like?

Healing Meditation


I stretch and relax my body then settle comfortably lying on my bed on my back. I breathe deeply and
slowly and tune my awareness into watching the inhalations and exhalations moving through my body. I
remind myself to detach my awareness from all external influences and encourage myself to float and drift peacefully downwards into a deeper state of relaxation. It is just a casual observation of my breath and the serenity, which flows through me.

I then direct my focus to the base of my spine. (Base Chakra) After a short time, I become aware of a
slight pulsation, which indicates that this area is now open and freely flowing with energy. The base chakra is associated with security. A lack of free flowing energy here would indicate to me that I was holding tension here, meaning that I was feeling insecure or unsupported.

I imagine a thick, strong, golden cord running from the base of my spine down deep into the centre of the earth and grounding me. This gives me a sense of belonging in my space on the earth and also of being securely held and supported. I then run another cord from the base of my spine down through my legs and then out through the soles of my feet. This is an additional grounding cord and also anchors me. I watch in a detached manner as energy rises along the cords and I can physically feel energy waves, gently and pleasantly, swirling around my pelvic area.

I affirm to myself, “I am safe, supported, secure and protected. I am physically and materially provided for and all of my needs are met, easily and effortlessly”.

My attention now lifts to my third eye; this is the screen of my mind. I look slightly upwards towards the
inside of my forehead above and behind my eyebrows. I ask the question, “What do I most need to see,
know, feel or do right now?” It’s tempting to keep asking, but I know that stillness is required and listening is essential. It takes a moment for the fluttering and blurred fragments to focus into clear images. My senses seem to probe, shift and adjust, trying to hook into a strong sensation.

I begin to see images of myself and sense that the theme is about issues that I have with money. I ask what it is that I need to understand here. I sense/hear the words ‘debt consciousness’. Images of debt, financial lack and money struggles play out on my screen. I see myself years earlier having my car repossessed, being evicted, borrowing and stealing, stressed, embarrassed, resentful, frustrated and angry.

The images go back into childhood issues, many things long forgotten, but now playing across my mind. I
see myself on a running machine. I run faster and faster but still I get no further ahead. I see a calendar with pages tearing away and years racing by. The calendar has all the pages marked with numbers and due dates.

The images play like a short movie or photographs of my life.

I then see a box and rolls of video film are placed inside it. The box lifts and then spirals downwards. I
watch it falls quickly and deeply down into the centre of the earth. Fire swallows the box and an ever so
slight wisp of smoke rises to confirm to me that the box and all its contents have been destroyed.

My attention is now drawn back to the base of my spine. I notice long white tentacles emanating outwards in all directions. The tentacles seem to be white ribbons but then I realize that they are fluid beams of white light. As I watch, I notice that the lights are searching the world, the Universe and beyond. I become aware that the light is seeking and finding good fortune, gifts, windfalls, inheritances, generosity, ideas, success and abundance. Money symbols like dollar signs, coins and dollar notes slide easily and quickly along the shafts of light and fall into the base of my spine.

My pelvic area feels like it is expanding. I notice multi-coloured lights flickering and waves of cloudy energy forms swirling around inside me. Golden stars shoot around and out of me. I feel light, energized and peaceful. I am pulsating and expanding, feeling lighter and lighter.

The energy rises into the second chakra. I watch fascinated as a clear glass looking funnel rises from me
and extends into infinity. Thick, fluid light is being poured into the funnel and enters my body, swirling
around, feeling warm and slightly vibrating within me. I become weightless and feel as if I am floating
blissfully on air.

Faces of past lovers and friends come into focus and then drift by. They return pieces of me that they have been holding and I notice fragments lift from me and return to them. I’m not sure what this exchange is, but as I wonder about this, my intuition answers, “We are letting go and moving on”. This is done with gratitude and love. We all keep what has been given and meant to be kept, but we let go of the attachments to each other which may have been holding us back.

As the energy around my second chakra becomes stronger and freer I find my body responding with a
sense of sexual arousal. It’s very nice, but I know that if I focus on this I will become tempted to allow
myself to be seduced by it. I have learned through experience that by lifting my attention into the third
chakra, the arousal energy will become spiritual energy and physical vitality.

I sense and see what looks a little like The Milky Way expanding throughout my solar plexus; twinkling,
gold and silver particles and wispy cloudy light, with floating and spiralling coloured strings, gentle
movement and a slight humming sensation. This reminds me of looking through a microscope or perhaps a
kaleidoscope. This is too hard to describe as nothing else is similar enough to make a comparison. There
are colours and shapes that don’t exist in my present reality.

I notice a beam of light like a spotlight, searching out dark or congested pockets within the area. I am
scanning my stomach, kidneys, liver and digestive system. I physically feel a lot of movement and hear my stomach growl. There is a feeling of effervescence like champagne bubbles rising within me. An ever so slight nauseous feeling washes over my solar plexus, but before I can ask if I am not well, I realize that there is a lifting and freeing of emotional blockage in progress.

Feeling reassured, I relax and observe what seems like a magnifying glass being held over varying shapes of dark energy patterns. Words like criticism, resentment, worry and insecurity come to my mind. The dark shapes become lighter and appear to be hit with a laser beam. This lifts the patterns like some kind of vapour which then disappears. It’s impossible to describe this accurately, but I found it really interesting to view emotions and feelings as textures, colours and shapes.

I move my hands and rest them over my heart as I will the energy to rise again and enter the heart area. I can physically feel my heart beating under my hands. I instruct my hands to send warmth and healing light into my heart. It takes a moment, but then I notice my heart beat slowing down. Very subtle waves of movement are spreading throughout my chest and up into my shoulders. My hands can feel this movement and my heart, lungs, back and shoulder muscles become expanded and lighter. There are two or three very strong streams of movement racing down through my body and out through my feet. It feels like a drain being unblocked as my whole body takes up this surge of lightness and effervescence. I feel a sense of excitement but it is also profoundly calm and serene at the same time.
