Social Responsibility Part B – Affirmations, Messages, Guided Meditation (2019)


Affirmations I’m offering these if
you care to adopt them and repeat them to yourself,
that would be delightful. Here’s the first one. “I care about life.” “We are all in this together.” “I contribute to a beautiful future.” Couple of messages. (From Pamela Eakins, Ph.D.) “We all benefit when an
individual contributes to the positive flow of the universe.” “Mother Earth needs our
love, respect, and our help.” “Act from basic goodness.” “Follow your heart.” So now for a guided meditation. We wanna start by getting comfortable. Either lying down or sitting on the couch. You can even slouch if you like. Or you can take a formal sitting posture. Whatever you’re comfortable with. And we want to take just a moment and wrap ourselves in white
light or say a little prayer. Or anything that helps you feel protected as we go into an altered
state of consciousness. And we want to become present. Become present to our environment: any sounds in the room or the house or building that you’re in; any body sensations that you may have; the temperature in the room; that places where your body
touches other forms of matter, clothing, the blanket, the chair; and just focus on the breath. That is the best way to become present. It brings our conscious
mind, our awareness, in contact with our subconscious mind that is responsible for
our breathing all the time, whether we’re aware of it or not. So when we focus on the breath, we bring those two
aspects of mind together. It’s very powerful, very present. We don’t have to do any
particular kind of breathing, just noticing, and as we notice that our body is slowing down a little bit our heart is not beating quite as fast as it does when we’re active, our breathing is getting
longer and deeper, we’re starting to relax. We’ll imagine ourselves
in a beautiful setting. We’ll start with imagining that we’re walking through a meadow and we come upon a gorgeous little lake. (water splashes gently) The water looks very blue ’cause the sky is crystal clear and blue and the proverbial little
white clouds in the sky, sunshine and cool breeze. And we sit down beside the
pond, at the edge of the pond and we put our feet into the water and the water is pristine clear, cool, and we hold very still and
pretty soon little minnows start nibbling at our toes and it tickles. It feels good to interact with nature. And as we’re sitting there watching the little minnows nibbling, they’re looking for little tidbits, of course. They don’t know that these feet are attached to this great big human. But we’re grateful that the
little minnows are there. Because we know they’re a
vital part of the food chain. And we know that if they weren’t there, this little pond would not be so healthy. So we’re very grateful for life. And we notice a gorgeous
hawk flying overhead. Wow, we don’t get to see that very often. And we’re also grateful that
wildlife exists on our planet. And off in the distance we
can see a couple of deer, very sweet deer, non-aggressive. And then we notice a little
baby fawn along with them, all of its little white spots. And we’re thrilled. We
can’t wait to go home and tell our friends about
all the wonderful creatures we have seen. And about
this beautiful little lake and the gorgeous meadow. And we sit in amazement
at the diversity of life, as the natural process goes on. And we’re very grateful
that somebody established this little lake as part
of a nature preserve. That this land was set
aside from development so that we could enjoy this afternoon. And our heart is stirred with the desire to continue to be a part
of life where our heartbeat and the heartbeat of
Mother Earth are in sync. And we make a commitment
to remember this moment, this experience, this interaction with life and nature. And we promise ourselves to continue it. And to share it with others. And to allow it to purify us. So we gently wiggle our toes,
(water splashes gently). Frightening those little minnows away. And we dry our feet off
(birds chirping lightly) and we pull ’em out of the
water and dry our feet off. And then we start our little
walk back to the parking lot. And we get on our bicycle and we have a gorgeous ride back home. And as we’re riding, we
feel the breeze on our face, blowing our hair back a little bit. And we’re so grateful to be
able to breathe clear air, pure air. And we look around at the trees and the grass and the flowers. and we just nod to them and
say, “Thank you for your part in making this air breathable for me.” And then we smile to ourselves and we know that life goes on. And when we get home we find a comfortable place to sit and reflect on the beauty
and the wonders of life, of nature, of ourselves. And as we’re sitting, reflecting,
we focus on our breath. Taking a nice deep inhale. Gentle exhale. Another nice deep inhale. Gentle exhale. And we gradually open our eyes and come back to where we started. May your days be filled with wonder. Namaste.
