I was practicing a new exercise the other day when we were out for a walk. We came across a waterfall, and I employed it in a cleansing meditation. I could clearly feel the energy of the waterfall flowing down through its little channel. So I asked the waterfall to bathe me in that energy and help to sweep away old aspects of myself that are no longer serving me. Old thoughts, fears, beliefs, and emotions. I could feel the fresh energy flushing through my system, sweeping out little bits that have been holding on for much too long.
The visit was much too short, and my mind did not stay clear nearly long enough. I feel I should make another visit to a waterfall, in which I could sit for a few hours and delve into an intensive meditation. There is a great energy surrounding waterfalls.
Another brief meditation I did on that same walk was at sunset. I sat down and looked toward the sunset, and then focused on the meathod. It was a technique that Bernie read in one of his books not too long ago. You imagine a gold orb over your head. You ask all your bits of energy you have lost in the past and future to come back to you. Often you will have images of places, people, events, and more flash through your mind as these lost aspects of yourself start to stream back. You call them into the orb over your head. When you feel that you have called back as much as possible at that time, you allow the golden orb to crack open and pour over you, cleansing your chakras, and filling you up with all that wonderful energy.
I know I have much more energy to call back to myself. But when I finished my meditation I felt very good. My energy level was quite improved. This was an exercise that I should do much more often than I have been, until I feel I have recalled all those little lost aspects.
