Easter Sunrise Prayer
Hearts reflecting glory
Looking to the morning sun
Reminding us the Lord of all
Risen above, shining bright
Protecting us with radiant light
Pointing out the path of love
Now teaching us
From heaven above.
Teaching us with shining love.
To prepare for your Easter sunrise meditation choose a place outdoors if weather permits, such as in the garden - indoors is okay, too.
Sit in your usual meditation pose - on a cushion if that is possible with your legs folded in, or on a straight-back chair with the soles of your feet firmly planted on the floor. Fold your hands in your lap.
Take a deep breath in and slowly release it, then begin even regular breathing such a 2 counts to breathe in and 2 counts to breathe out.
When you are feeling steady say an Easter prayer such as the one included here or another of your choice. This will be the theme for your meditation.
Close your eyes and take a minute to give thanks for all you have in your life, and any special requests that come to mind, especially for guidance in your path of soul realization.
Easter is a time to reflect that the Lord gave us guidance to use in a practical way to improve ourselves, and to grow beyond self-serving goals so we will do good for others, too.
Now, quietly start following your regular breathing in and out. This calms the unit of your mind, body and emotions and allows higher thoughts to come into your waking consciousness.
Say a closing prayer of appreciation, take a deep breath in and out, open your eyes and stretch out. Continue your day with a greater awareness of Spirit. After all, spirituality must be practical to be useful.
