A 12 Minute Meditation
This meditation is designed to connect you to your soul, access information from the halls of learning and be at one with the universal consciousness. Sit in a comfortable straight-backed chair with your spine erect. Lay your hands softly in your lap with the palms upwards. Relax and be at peace. For a little while forget all your troubles and problems. Just enjoy the short journey you are about to take into the realms of light. Close your eyes and breathe a little deeper and deeper.
Let’s begin our meditation with the Great Invocation…
From the point of light within the mind of God, let light stream forth into the minds of men. Let light descend on earth.
From the point of love within the heart of God, let love stream forth into the hearts of men. May Christ return to earth.
From the centre where the will of God is known, let purpose guide the little wills of men. The purpose which the masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the race of men, let the plan of love and light work out. And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let light and love and power restore the plan on earth.
As you relax you are aware of gradual warmth enfolding your body. Above you is a golden sun with rays of light and love pouring down upon you. Feel this beam of light gently entering your heart and lifting you upwards, up into the world of spirit.
You see in front of you a wide avenue of trees; magnificent oaks and elms intermingle with silver birches and other varieties never seen on the earth plane. Behind these trees, almost hiding them from view, you glimpse stately buildings, in front of which are flower gardens and green lawns. These are the vast museums and picture galleries, which hold all the treasures of the world in etheric form. Nothing of culture and beauty is ever lost. It is all here for the eye to behold and wonder at. You have only to think of a painting you would like to see and you are instantly standing before it in a vast art gallery, surrounded by all the other masterpieces of that particular artist.
However, on this occasion, your meditation takes you to another part of this street. You turn off the main path and find yourself in a large square with Grecian-style buildings on all four sides. These are the halls of wisdom. In the centre of the square is a tall fountain with water playing and splashing into a large pool. If you look into it, you will see fish swimming slowly across the surface. Look at the beautiful colours of the goldfish and the koi carp.
In front of the buildings are marble benches and you feel drawn to one particular seat. As you sit down, you become aware that next to you is a white-robed figure. Around his waist is a rope made of spun gold and on his feet are golden sandals. This is an elder brother who has come to talk with you. If you have a problem, tell him about it and you will find that an answer begins to form within your mind. This brother of light wants to help you to expand your heart centre so that the love from your soul can radiate out into the world. Sit quietly beside him and feel that your heart is expanding with pure joy. Let these waves of light from your own soul flow out into our earthly world, reaching out to wherever they are needed, be it a country or a person. Just surround the object of your love with light and ask that healing or help be given.
After a while the long-robed figure stands up and beckons to you to follow him. He leads you into one of the buildings on your side of the square. Once inside, you gaze upon a very large room lit by a pure white light that appears to be coming from an opening in the domed roof. All around the room are archways leading into smaller book-filled libraries. In the main room are several groups of people, sitting around circular tables listening intently to highly evolved teachers. You now have a choice – you can either join one of the groups or pass through one of the arches and study the books filling the shelves in that smaller alcove. If you choose to enter one of the libraries, think of a spiritual subject that you would like to learn more about and you will immediately find yourself inside that particular room with all the appropriate volumes to hand. Take one of the books to a small table, sit down and open it. You may not see the words very clearly but they will have made an impression on your inner mind and when needed will be of use to you. You also may see only symbols. These have meanings that can be reflected upon when you return from your meditation.
Soon it is time to leave these halls of wisdom. Your elder brother guides you out of the building and you find yourself once more on the seat in front of the fountain. If you wish, you may linger here for a short while to refresh yourself, before you return to your everyday life. Let the peace and tranquillity of this special level of consciousness enter and fill you. It will remain with you as you slowly return to your chair on the earth plane.
Remember that you can always meet your friend in spirit, either in your meditations, or in your sleep. Practise the exercise that he has given you to send out love from your heart into the world. This light that you send out will be returned to you in full measure. As you give, so shall you receive. Before you leave your chair, with your inner vision see yourself enfolded in a circle of protecting light. Become aware once more, of the solid floor beneath your feet and gently open your eyes.
