Do you have a tree? If not Plant one.
Did you ever Planted a tree? If not do it.
Do you see trees on daily basis? If not go to a park or just plant one.
This meditation will help to align your energies with the earth’s energies so that you feel calm, refreshed and at peace. It begins with awareness on the out breath which helps to keep you focused in the present moment.
The meditation itself is done as visualization, but you could do it outdoors sitting with your back against a tree. Trees and plants have their own energy fields and you can absorb this energy in a positive and revitalizing way for your whole being.
If you are standing, imagine your feet growing roots; if you are sitting, imagine the roots coming out of your legs and your bottom and heading down into the soil.
With each out-breath, your roots grow and reach deeper into the soil. Also feel stress and tension flow out of your roots with each out-breath. Keep focusing and extending your roots.
With each in-breath, feel yourself pulling cool, earthy, grounding energy from the soil and Mother Earth. Feel that energy move slowly from your feet and legs up through your “trunk,” down your “limbs” and into every cell in your body. When your body is full of this grounding energy, feel it begin to exit through the top of your head.
Now that you have grounded, imagine your arms are limbs and are reaching toward the sky, toward the sun, the source of energy that nourishes green plants and life on earth.
With each out-breath, your branches reach further into the sky. Release tension and stress. Feel your branches growing.
With each in-breath, breathe in the light, warm, energizing sunlight, allowing it to flow down from your “branches” and “trunk” to each part of your body and into each cell.
Feel the energies of earth and sky mixing within you. When you are full of this vitality, let the energy seep down and out of your roots.
Feel how grounded, calm, and centered you are, but also energized, focused, and with broader perspective.
When you feel complete with this experience, slowly increase your breathing, feel yourself return to your body, stretch, and open your eyes.
