Simple Meditation/Ritual to Energise your Intentions

Since it can be difficult to do a meditation, reflection or to set a mindful intention at the time of the eclipse, below you can find a special simple meditation, available for everyone, and easy to perform. I have created it.

The night of the 20th or the 21st of August 2017, you can personally do this meditation at your own time and pace.

Try not to eat heavy. Wear comfortable clothes. If you have a person with whom you can share this experience with, do it together.

Take with you:

  • A crystal: you can use clear quartz or any of the crystals mentioned at the end of this page (OPTIONAL)
  • A glass of spring water
  • Some sea salt (in a small cup or plate)
  • A small towel
  • A white candle (if scented, use light to neutral aromas, avoid fruity aromas)

Sit comfortably in a quiet place. If indoor, allow the darkness of the night to penetrate through the window or door. If outdoor, choose a quiet place without distractions.

Carefully lit the candle and place it in front of you.

Place your crystals, the glass of water and the salt also in front of you.

Start doing conscious breathing, focusing all your attention in the air going in and out of your nostrils. Then feel that air reaching all your body in every inhalation, and feel your soul moving in every exhalation.

Close your eyes for a moment and imagine the light coming from the center of the universe penetrating in your heart and revitalizing yourself. Blend with it, and while breathing, activate your smell, touch and hearing senses.

Keep that inner vision for a moment. Allow it to sit in your inner consciousness.

Open your eyes and look out to the darkness. Sense that light you just imagined penetrating everywhere out in the dark night. Keep breathing, with all the senses activated now.

Take the glass of water and pour the salt into the water. Keep breathing. Start stirring it slowly with your finger. Then pour it in your hands and wash them. With it, wash away your fears, tensions, expectations, external conditioning, anxieties, worries, and your limitations. Clear yourself up.

Dry your hands with the towel.

Now gaze at the flame burning from the candle. Feel your inner fire burning too. Start feeling an inner purification of all the old patterns of behaviour that did not support your growth. Start feeling an inner transformation as you see the flame. Consciously set an intention for pure change, for courage, and for trust. Trust in you, trust in the universe. Keep breathing.

Look up to the stars or to the outside dark night. And sense the following statement this: this is your life.

Keep yourself there for as long as you please while consciously breathing and hearing the blended sound of life on earth with your breath.
