The Heart's Intuitive Garden (Meditation)

Last week we discussed the Chakra System and how we can work with these wheels of energy to unlock our Intuition. Today I'm going to share a meditation that we can use to ground ourselves in Mother Nature, flex our Chakras and connect with our team of guides, angels and power animals. It's one of my favourites!

Ideally, I would suggest that you record this on your phone and play it back, as your subconscious responds to your voice. But I have linked to a Youtube video below! =) 

1) Clear Your Surroundings 

Find a place to sit, one where you won’t be disturbed. It can also help if the room is tidy, as a clean environment reflects on our mental clarity and our Aura. Have a look around the room, notice the décor, the furniture and color pattern. Take a couple deep breaths to calm your mind and release your day. Breathing in love and peace, breathing out stress and tension. Now bring your attention to the soles of your feet and let them relax. Work your way up through your ankles, calves and thighs letting any tension fall down through the floor to the center of the earth for cleansing and purification. Breathe into your stomach and release any tension from your abdomen and chest. Let your attention go up through your shoulders and neck to the top of your head, relaxing as you go. One more deep breath and we are ready to begin. 

With your eyes closed, bring your attention to the room. See it in your mind’s eye: the color on the walls, are there curtains, hardwood floors, rugs or carpets? Let these images flash before your eyes for a moment, and watch as they are washed away by the brightest of lights. This light sweeps around the room, clearing, healing and releasing the energy as it goes. See and feel yourself surrounding by this light. It creates a bright, friendly and safe environment for you to work in. Only the highest vibrations are able to penetrate this light, letting your angels and spirit guides through and nothing else. Breathe in this light, and watch as the ceiling lifts off, carried by the power of this light. The room and your body are inundated with white light from above. 

2) Connect with Mother Nature

Bring your attention back to the soles of your feet, where our foot chakras connect us with Mother Earth. Visualize and feel these energy centers as they open up ever so slightly. We’re going to ground ourselves by creating a set of grounding cords, and letting them extend down from our Foot Chakras to the center of the earth. Let your imagination bring these cords to life, as you see them cut through layers and layers of dirt, rock and lava before they reach a beautiful cave at the center of the earth. Here we see a massive crystal formation, the Heart of the Earth. Let your intuition give it a color, indicating the healing that you need right now.

Your grounding cords draw on the energy in this crystal. It goes up through the cords, to the bottoms of your feet where its brings tingles and warmth to your body. This fills your feet with healing energy and flows up, through your calves and thighs to the Root Chakra at the bottom of your spine. The Root Chakra is where we feel our connection to the earth, our surroundings and also our sense of physical safety. Let that energy clear and heal any doubts, fear or tension from your physical body and your psyche, firmly anchoring you in a place of love. Release any tension into the ground through your legs, for cleansing and renewal. 

3) Activate the Lower Chakras

The Root Chakra is the gateway to the rest of the body. The more we focus on clearing and healing it, the stronger and healthier the rest of the Chakras will be. You may want to repeat this grounding process every morning to deepen your grounding and boost vitality, motivation and sense of belonging in the world. Strong grounding and deep foundations tend to yield specific, timely and helpful intuitive messages. 

Next, bring your attention to Sacral Chakra in the lower abdomen, where we feel emotions, creativity and appetite for life. It’s also the Chakra that opens the door to empathy for others, and by clearing and healing it we can release any feelings that may have been absorbed from those around us. Let that earth energy wash through you Sacral Chakra, releasing tension into the ground. We are going to let our Sacral Chakra grow strong with earth energy, infusing it with creative power. This will make it easier for us to create the life we desire.

We are going to balance and heal the Solar Plexus, our personal power center. Located in the upper abdomen, the Solar Plexus is also where we draw boundaries, discover our sense of self and experiences joy. Visualize and feel this beautiful Chakra as it expands, bright yellow and full of sunshine. Know that it is safe for you to shine your light in the world. Embrace your strengths and your weaknesses, and remember that our imperfections make us unique individuals. Your Solar Plexus grows in power & tenderness as it fills with earth energy. Release any misgivings or self-doubt into the ground for purification. A strong Solar Plexus gives us permission to be ourselves. 

4) Enter the Heart's Garden

Now bring your attention to the Heart Chakra, the seat of unconditional love and also where we receive the clearest guidance. We are going to work with Earth energy to clear this space and create a garden for our intuition to thrive. See and feel the earth energy as it reaches this loving center, your Heart activates and expands filled with green and pink light. Use your imagination to step into your Heart Chakra, where you see a beautiful garden, blooming with love. Sit on the warm earth and visualize a grounding cord dropping from your Root Chakra at the base of the spine, into the Earth, effectively grounding you from the Heart.

Still firmly grounded, turn your attention to the sky where we find the Sun’s warmth and the Moon’s intuition. Connect with these luminaries and bring their light through the atmosphere, to your garden where the light reaches your body. Your Crown Chakra opens up to receive that light, letting it flow down through your Brow and Throat Chakras illuminating them as it goes. The moonlight comes to rest in your Heart, while the sunlight flows past the Solar Plexus and Sacral Chakras to the Root, shedding light on any aspects of your life that may need healing right now. Observe without judgement and intend for your Heart's loving energy to follow suit, healing that space. Stay as long as you like. 
Now that we’re grounded, clear and attuned to earth and sky energy; it’s time to tend to the intuitive garden in our Heart. Look for weeds, dry flowers and gently remove them. In their place, we are going to plant new flowers, letting our imagination bring the colors to life. These flowers represent the different psychic abilities that are available to us:  red for physical sensations, orange for empathy, yellow to help us feels the vibes in our surroundings, sky blue for clairaudience, indigo blue for clairvoyance and violet for just knowing. There are many ways for us to receive intuitive guidance, the colors that stand out merely clue us into your intuitive strengths. We can plant seeds for new flowers to grow and new abilities to develop. For now we will observe with compassion, showering the flowers with love & light.

5) Spirit Guides and Angels

Sit in the garden and feel the energy around you, taking in the light. We’re going to call one of our Spirit Guides or Angels, asking them to join us. Don’t be surprised if they look like a bird or a squirrel. Take a few moments to feel your guide’s energy and get to know them. They know how you feel but they’d like to hear it anyway. Share your thoughts and feelings with them, ask for guidance or help if there’s a particular issue that is troubling you. The answer may come now as a thought or intuition, or it may come to you during the day. We can come back to this place of loving guidance at anytime simply by checking in with our Heart. When you feel ready, thank your guides, angels and your flower garden and say goodbye for now. 

6) The End: Closing Down

It's important to close down properly at the end of any intuitive meditation. Sit in the garden and look up at the sky, thanking Father Sun and Mother Moon for their love, support and guidance. Disconnect from their lovely energy, knowing full well that they are always there for you and let your Crown Chakra close down gently. Your Brow and Throat Chakras follow suit. We are going to close and protect our Heart Chakra by visualizing a beautiful fence around the garden, and closing the gate behind us as we leave. Bring your attention back to your body on the chair. Draw your Solar Plexus in closer to your body, protecting it with a gold plate at the front and back. Follow suit with the Sacral Chakra, before bringing your attention to the Root. We’re going to draw our Root Chakra in just a little bit, so that it’s still drawing in warm earth energy. Check your grounding roots, and visualize a bubble of protective light around your body. When you are ready, open your eyes, stretch and have a sip of water. Give yourself some time to come around before getting up.
