Journey Across A Lake
(At the end of this post you will find another version of this mediation that uses binaural beats for use with headphones.)
I invite you to take a journey with me, a journey which will increase your ability to concentrate and visualize, and with practice, open you up to your own inner light.
Once you feel safe and relaxed, close your eyes.
Take a deep breath and become very still.
Using the sounds you hear, try to see the world with your inner sight. Imagine the blue sky above you and the firm ground under your feet. Take in a deep breath and as you let go, feel yourself rise just a little way off the ground.
We are high up on a mountainside. The air is warm and comfortable. A lake sits at the bottom of the valley far below us.
Following the curve of a small path, we slowly float down the mountainside. Our feet don’t touch the ground, but brush against the tips of rocks and soft grasses.
Running alongside us is a small stream. We stop to watch it run downhill and sparkle in the sunlight.
We come to a tree and breathe in its fresh, pure air. Its branches reach upward, far above us and sway lazily in the wind.
We stop for a moment to take in the view. Clouds float far above us while the lake stretches out below. Birds chirp in the distance and fly upon the breeze.
Fallen leaves cover the path in shades of orange, yellow and brown. Leaning in closer we examine a single leaf and trace the veins of its delicate webbing.
We float further down the mountainside and come to a meadow. Butterflies play in the sunlight and flowers dot the field with bright colors: red, blue, yellow and violet.
We move off the path to take in the splendor of a single flower, a daisy. Its golden center is framed by a perfect circle of white petals.
We turn and look at another flower, a bluebell. Tracing each edge with our eyes, we might wonder at the source of such a delicate design.
Floating a little further down the mountainside we find a gate. We open it and close it, and then look behind us. The mountain soars up into the air and we realize how far we have travelled.
With each breath we float a little further down the mountainside until we arrive at the edge of the lake. The water laps against the shore, without a worry, without a care. Everything in this moment is at peace. The lake is pure and clear. Each ripple dips, sways and sparkles in the sunlight. Our breath is now very shallow and calm, the sounds of the lake naturally soothing us.”
