Sit down comfortably, with your spine straight, and take three deep breaths, exhaling slowly. Take your time to relax every muscle in your body.
Visualise a bright Light above your head.
Open your crown chakra (at the top of your head) by visualizing the petals of a flower slowly opening fully. Breathe or draw the Light into your crown chakra, taking it down into your heart chakra. Feel your heart chakra expand as you fill it with as much Light as you feel you can hold. Enjoy the feelings of Love and Healing that accompany the Light, and allow it to fill your body.
When you feel ready, visualise a root growing from your base chakra (at the base of your spine), which enters the ground and keeps going down until it connects with the centre of the Earth. Breathe in more Light and allow it to flow through you into the centre of the Earth, effectively turning you into a column of Light, connected to the Light and the centre of the Earth. Carry on breathing in Light and enjoy!
When you feel you’ve had enough, slowly withdraw your root and bring the Light back up into your heart chakra. Slowly allow the petals of your crown chakra to close. When you are ready, open your eyes and finish.
You can repeat this meditation at any time to fill yourself, or yourself and the Earth with Light. It can also be used for healing yourself by visualizing the Light from your heart chakra to flow into the part of your body that needs healing. To heal the Earth, visualise the Light flowing from the centre of the Earth to the area on the surface that needs healing.
