At this time of the new moon we open up to new possibilities. We allow new ideas and experiences to enter our lives.
In our previous few meditations we have been beginning our journey for the next six months. With this new moon we explore new ways of being and moving through this journey.
Take a few deep breaths and close your eyes. Find yourself laying on the grass in a meadow. Feel the cool earth underneath you and the grass tickling your arms and feet. Watch the clouds above you form into shapes.
You have nowhere to be and nothing to do. No one is expecting you and your whole day is free. Laying here in the sun is your scheduled activity for this time. How does it feel to be free of all responsibilities for a while? When is the last time you felt this way?
If an idea of something you should do or think about pops into your head, return your focus on the clouds above. What do the clouds remind you of?
Find yourself feeling a connection with the clouds above you as if they are creating a show just for you. Know that nothing is more important than this time of relaxation and mind clearing right now. Open up the space in your mind for new ideas and feelings to enter.
Allow the clouds to entertain you or even show you new possibilities. Feel calm and connected with the world around you. Take deep breaths as you sink into this feeling. Let your body and mind become refreshed and renewed. Enjoy this feeling for as long as you need.
When you feel ready, hear the sounds around your physical body. Wiggle your fingers and toes, and open your eyes.
Now take some time to write about this experience to learn more from this time of meditation.
Were you able to let your thoughts and feelings quiet a bit for just this short time period? If not, that is fine, it just shows you how noisy your mind is most of the time.
What did you see in the clouds?
Did any new thoughts occur to you even if they are just the beginning of idea?
Can you find even five minutes over the next few days to relax with this meditation and see if anything new about this thought comes forward. Download recorded Shadow Work meditations on Gumroad: Click Here
