This guided meditation can be used any time you wish to connect with the energy of expansion.
Record yourself slowly speaking the words below, pausing between sentences.
Allow yourself to hear them with all of your attention.
Find a quiet place where you can block out the light.
Lie down. Close your eyes.
Regulate your breathing by taking a deep breathe in through your nose, down through your body and into your abdomen and releasing it slowly through your mouth.
Feel yourself lying down on a beach.
Your eyes are closed.
You are resting.
You are so comfortable, the sand moulded around your body, supporting you well.
You can hear the gentle wash of the waves coming in over the shore and going out again, the sound a soothing rhythm calming you and giving you a sense that everything within you is in perfect order and harmony.
You spread out your hands and feel the sand beneath them, the grains shifting and sifting between your fingers. You marvel at this feat of nature, at these fine particles of rock and mineral, at their history and future of transformation and endurance.
You can feel the sun’s rays on your whole body, sweeping over your hair and face and neck and torso and limbs, warming you and cleansing you and healing you.
The light on your eyelids makes shapes that move and change as you watch them, hypnotising you with a dance that transports you to a state of transcendence.
There is a sweet smell on the breeze that is gently washing over you, the fragrance of the flowers on the bushes and trees all around.
You feel well. Healthy. Peaceful. At one with life.
You can feel that the sea and the sun and the sand and the trees and the flowers and the breeze are all a part of the energy that you are also an expression of.
You can feel your connection with the oneness of all.
Rest in this feeling.
Let it move within you, carried by your breath through your body, in and out and all around, this energy of life, this oneness, this wholeness.
Feel the energy coming up from the ground beneath you.
It is strong and healthy and natural.
As it radiates through you you feel its vitality seeping into your cells, fortifying them, recharging them and grounding them.
You feel the truth stirring within you that there is so much more to life than you have allowed yourself to experience.
Here you are your total self.
Your unlimited being is reflected in nature.
Your potential and beauty are mirrored back at you.
Your eternal resilience is in evidence.
And you can feel it; the expansive nature of life.
Shift your position to lay more deeply in the sand.
Right now you feel that there is nothing that can hold you back.
Right here in this moment you can be whoever you want to be.
You know that you are the person you have always imagined the world would notice.
You know who you really are and what you are really capable of.
You can take this wisdom into your life.
You can use it to guide your actions and inform your choices and dispel doubt and dig deep within your resources.
You are so ready now to move beyond your limitations.
You are so ready now to explore the boundless energy that you truly are.
Feel in your body the surrender to a higher mind.
Feel the joy of liberation from the limited self.
Sense the wellbeing of living from an unlimited state.
Know that you can carry these feelings into your day.
Sit up on the beach now and look out across the water.
There is a beautiful sunset setting the sky alight with pinks and violets and oranges and reds.
It is awe inspiring.
It takes your breath away.
It humbles you.
It makes you forget who you think you are and connect with your true self.
You are nature.
You are beauty.
You are energy.
You are creation.
You are beyond illusion.
There are no limits for you.
There is nothing that can hold you back.
Here and now, on this beach, you are in love with life and in love with yourself and you know that you truly free.
