A mini-mini meditation for you, inspired by the color white!


White Light Meditation
Take three deep breaths. Inhale peace, exhale tension, growing more relaxed with every breath you take. Imagine you are in a beautiful forest that smells of pine and cedar. Hear the rush of a waterfall and go closer until you can feel  the refreshing mist from the waterfall on your face. Now imagine this mist is filled with a glowing white, light filled with love, that gently surrounds you and comforts you. Let this light flow into your heart and then spread through you bringing vitality, harmony and health to your every cell. As you breathe the white light in, a growing sense of calm and well being flows through you. 

Imagine a symbol of white that is beautiful to you. Let its beauty fill your heart as you give thanks for the blessings of this earth. Return to your day refreshed, calm and content!

Peacefully...

Thanks Heather. The Mountain Laurel grows wild all around us. I can hardly wait for it to bloom.

I love the "cosmical" range of your images, from the amazing photo of the galaxy to the equally amazing owl feather ... and, of course, your artwork is as captivating as nature itself.

Ms Monika - You are so sweet! Thank you for your loving observations that help me to see my work anew.
