This is a visual meditation for going beyond the clashing mental back and forth roadblocks in relationships, by turning them inside out.
To begin, find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. I have a spot in my attic that is private and peaceful. A small skylight is right overhead to let in natural light and fresh air.
When facing an altar arrange the items youíll need, such as fresh flowers, and uplifting objects - those that hold positive memories.
If you are sitting on the floor on a cushion or folded blanket sit up straight and bend your legs in; if sitting on a chair put the soles of your feet firmly on the floor to maintain your balance and sit up straight. Either way, clasp your hands in your lap or place them palms up or palms down on your thighs.
Close your eyes and take a deep breath in and slowly release it. Then begin a series of even regular breathing, such as one count to breathe in and one count to breathe out. You neednít actually say the counts, just keep up this rhythm throughout your meditation.
Say a prayer or an appreciation for this opportunity to effect deep healing.
After observing your regular breathing for a minute turn your thoughts to the relationship you wish to heal.
With your eyes still closed, visualize the sun rising just over the horizon in all the beautiful colors leading to the full light of the golden sun.
Immerse yourself in the warmth of the sun, feel its rays penetrating your physical body, then allow the sunís radiation to light up all the cells of your mental and emotional body. Enjoy this feeling of release from walls separating you from another.
While feeling warm, comfortable and open visualize the person with whom you are having mental conflict. Allow your warmth to spread to and through this person without spiritual reserve. Hold this relationship in this healing glow for a minute or more.
Keep in mind that on the spiritual level we are one family and though mental and emotional issues may seem insurmountable in daily life, you can always reinforce your eternal spiritual connection by sitting in this healing meditation.
To finish your meditation take a deep breath in and slowly release it. Open your eyes, stretch out, enjoy the expansive feeling of peace and harmony, and carry it into your day.
