Reflecting on the Moon

Every object in nature is a symbol laden with meaning and significance. Each symbol is like a window through which we can go with our conscious awareness to discover new meaning. The moon hangs high in the night sky and seems only to reflect the light of the sun. And yet those reflections are powerful enough to effect the movement of the oceans here on Earth. What does this mean to you from a spiritual point of view? This visualisation may awaken the symbolic significance and meaning of the moon in your life.

Sit comfortably with only a low light in the room...
Consciously relax your body...
Take your attention away from everything around you and turn your attention inwards...
You are in the countryside...
It is late on a balmy summer's evening...
Night is descending slowly on the land as you stroll down a country road...
The road ahead rises upwards towards the moon which is slowly climbing into the night sky...
As the moon rises, it is as if the end of the road rises with it... Full and radiant, it shines its cooling light down on all and everything around you...
It caresses your face like smooth, soft, velvet ...
Walking up the gentle incline you look down to see your body dissolve beneath you...
You become aware of yourself as a small orb of light...
You float upwards towards the moon, as if drawn to a magnet...
For a moment you hover in front of this huge ball of pure, white light...
Upwards you move, into the light...
You can feel yourself being enfolded by pure, white, radiant light...
You can feel its coolness washing through your whole being...
You can feel yourself releasing the tension and worries which have been trapped in your memories, habitual thoughts and recurring emotions...
All anxiety dissolves like honey in warm water...
You are held floating in the purity and the peace of this light as it embraces you ...
Feel it filling you with a peace and contentment that you have never experienced before...
You float for a few moments, letting the light empower you...purify you...heal you ...
Then gently you begin to withdraw...floating out, and away, and back down towards the road below...
As you reach the road your body reappears and you can see and feel your physical costume once again...
You turn and begin to walk back down the road, back into your life ...
Refreshed, renewed and relaxed...
And you are aware that your busy mind is now quieter, calmer and clearer...
