Some of us may have a special devotion to the Madonna symbol as an eternal life-giving mother. As we all began in a mother's womb it is not surprising that we find comfort in the mother, the Madonna.
To begin your meditation on the Madonna, go to a special peaceful spot - it could be in the garden in nice weather or your meditation spot indoors. Then sit comfortably with a straight spine, close your eyes and fold your hands in your lap.
Take a minute to do a few rounds of even breathing to calm your body and mind. Example: breathe in 2 counts; breathe out 2 counts; breathe in 2 counts and continue.
Now that your mind is calming turn your thoughts to the Madonna symbol - the Mother symbol - the unconditional love mother gives her child.
Reflect that unconditional love not only benefits the receiver of that caring love, but just feeling unconditional love gives us feelings of fullness and joy. And I do believe that is a big lesson for us on earth - to practice and learn about unconditional, caring love, by giving of it in plentitude.
Finish your meditation with an appreciation for having the opportunity to think loving thoughts and show them by action!
