Morning Meditation and Visualisation (free 12 minute audio)
(With thanks to Jennifer Page who recorded and produced this audio)
This morning meditation and visualisation complete with the sounds of a meditation gong is the best way I know to set yourself up for the day and, indeed for life. Imagine that you are there in the room with me and with other participants, and I am talking you through. Just relax and go along with us and see what happens. It includes aligning your everyday personality with your soul or wisdom self, getting a message from an inner teacher or guide in the heart, welcoming the day, planning the focus of the day, and sending love. Ohm, which we will chant occasionally, is a mystical sanskrit sound of Hindu origin which invokes a sense of oneness. You should be ready for a happy and effective day after this!
Do it every day for a month, and it may change your life. And it’s only 12 minutes!
