The last few months have been challenging to say the least, so it’s no wonder we sometimes find our minds racing like the proverbial hamster in a wheel on steroids! A few days ago, I was talking to a friend, who wasn’t sleeping well because he had so much spinning around in his head.
As we were chatting, I was given this visualisation. It helped him a lot, and I also found it very effective, so now I’m sharing it with you. When we are overwhelmed, the best favour we can do ourselves is to take everything out of our head for a while and just ‘Be.’ That’s easier said than done, though. If only there was a way to reset, and start again with a clean slate.
This visualisation will help you do just that, because you really have to concentrate. There’s no room for rogue thoughts to steal your joy, and at the end of this, you’ll feel fresh, focused, and ready to carry on. Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin …
Visualisation for calming a racing mind
Sit comfortably and quietly with no distractions. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Take three or four slow, deep breaths, breathing in pure, clean air, and hold for a count of three.
On the exhale, breathe out any worries you may have, Give it a dark colour – brown, grey, red, whatever colour your stress ‘feels’ like. With each out breath, see the colour lighten, until your exhale is almost clear. Now you are ready to start.
Imagine a big clock face, inside your head. The dial is a bright silvery colour, the minute and hour hands are blue, and all the figures on the clock are purple. Both hands are at 12. The second hand is green, and that’s at 12 too.
You really need to concentrate now! Start counting, in your head, from 1 to 60. Count slowly, like seconds ticking away on a clock. At the same time, see the second hand going backwards, that is, anti-clockwise. When you get to 15, 30 and 45, visualise the second hand resting at numbers 9, 6 and 3. As you get to 60, it’s at 12. If it helps, see one of the other hands going with it. It’s tricky at first, because your brain is counting one way, but you are visualising something going in the other direction.
Now pause for a few moments, keeping your eyes closed and your head still, as it takes a moment or two to settle down after this powerful visualisation. Now you’re ready for the second part.
This time, count to 60 again, but see the second hand going clockwise, or forwards, as you count. This part is easier, but it’s important to do it to reset your energy properly. Again, see the second hand pause at 3, 6, 9 and 12. As you become more used to the visualisation, you can even imagine a ‘ticking’ sound as the second hand moves around the clock face.
Take a couple of deep, relaxing breaths, and thank the Universe for turning back time and resetting your energies. Now open your eyes and take a drink of water.
A note about the colours:
The colours on the clock face are not just random selections – they each have a spiritual and psychological connection to ensure the meditation is effective.
Silver: Silver is a colour of balance and reflection. It helps cleanse negative energies, and is an ideal background colour for our clock face. It’s a calming, soothing colour, and it reflects energy back, good and bad, so as you visualise the clock face, you signal to the Universe your intention of clearing negative energies, thereby attracting more positive energy into your life.
Green: Spiritually, green is the colour of the ray of Archangel Raphael, the Healing Angel. It’s also a colour associated with harmony and balance, in Nature and in spirit. It’s calming and restorative, with a gentle energy. If you are feeling stressed, wear something green, and/or carry a green crystal with you. Green is growth, spiritually, emotionally and physically.
Purple: Purple is the colour associated with richness, but it doesn’t always mean wealth; it’s also equated to spiritual enrichment. It’s the colour of the imagination, so having an element of purple in any visualisation will assist the process. Purple is very calming – the crystal amethyst is the one most recommended for dealing with anxiety. If you are wondering why the clock face isn’t in purple, it’s because too much can have the opposite effect, making you feel more anxious and out of balance.
Blue: Is linked to security, confidence and inner peace and tranquility. It’s also the colour of communication and protection. Wear blue to bring about a relaxed, secure state of being – especially when you are in unfamiliar situations.
Practice this visualisation whenever you feel your thoughts racing away from you. It’s also very effective at night, just before you go to sleep, if worry is causing disturbed nights. Please let me know how you get on with this in the comments. Love and blessings.
Meditations and visualisations are excellent for many things, so it’s a good practice to set aside some time each day to meditate. Whether you use a guided meditation by someone else, or just create your own scenario to quiet your mind and maybe do some inner healing or energy clearing, you will feel the benefits, so give it a go. Yesterday, I was messaging my friend Pam Goodall, who leads the spiritual circle I sit in, and I was feeling a bit sorry for myself, as I seem to be getting one infection after another just lately.
We were talking about the new ascension energies coming in for 2020, and the need to clear stuff from this life and past lives, and between us, we started visualising what would turn into a beautiful meditation.
It was a moving, powerful experience, which I’d love to share with you all. I have been thinking about writing my own meditations for a while now, but hadn’t got around to it yet, for various reasons. I’m really pleased with this one, and I feel motivated to write more .
Meditation is an excellent way to focus your mind, clear it of chatter, meet spirit guides, angels and loved ones, or simply relax. You don’t need special equipment or music – just a quiet, comfortable space where you won’t be disturbed Switch off your phone, or leave it in another room where it won’t disturb your sacred space.
Make sure you are neither too warm nor too cold, and have a glass of water handy. It’s best not to drink alcohol before or soon after meditation, as some intense feelings can come through, so keep a clear head. Also, don’t eat a big meal just before a meditation or visualisation. You will feel sluggish, and therefore won’t reap the full benefits of the experience.
Use this script, or anything you are drawn to. It’s a good idea to record it on your phone or another audio device, so you can play it back to yourself, rather than having to refer to the script and lose focus.
I found I felt lighter, happier and more at peace after going through this visualisation. I hope you enjoy the experience too. Love and blessings.
Close your eyes, relax your body, and see before you a big golden sphere of Christ consciousness. Step inside, and allow this golden light to open, clear and cleanse your 5D chakras. Start with the Earth Star, beneath your feet, the Root, at the base of your spine, the Sacral, between the Root and the abdomen, the Navel, at the navel, and the Solar Plexus, between the navel and the heart.
Now open the Heart chakra, at the heart, the Higher Heart, just above the heart, the Throat chakra, at the throat, the Third Eye, in the middle of the forehead, and the Crown chakra, on top of the head. Bring the light of Christ consciousness into your Causal chakra, a foot above your head, the Soul Star, two feet above your head, and finally the Stellar Gateway, three feet above the head.
Feel yourself connected, Earth to heaven, heaven to Earth, totally connected, totally protected, totally safe. See before you a beautiful purple staircase, with gold trim on the edge of each step. It’s not steep – it’s a gentle, gradual climb, and at the top of the stairs is healing and clearing, and alignment with your Higher self. Feel the atmosphere around you – calming, nurturing, loving, healing – as you glide effortlessly up the stairway.
At the head of the stairway, see before you a giant, emerald green pyramid. It’s a Healing Pyramid, and as you approach, the door opens and Archangel Raphael’s Healing Angels greet you to escort you in. There are many large emerald beds, and you are invited to lie down and make yourself comfortable. The bed feels soft and welcoming, although it’s made of crystal. Relax, and bathe in the restorative atmosphere of gold and violet light.
Archangels Raphael and Zadkiel stand at the head of the bed, and Jesus approaches the foot. His golden light of Christ consciousness enfolds you, and you look up, and see another bed overhead, similar to the top bunk in a set of bunk beds. In it is your Higher Self, and your own bed rises, so you can blend with your Higher Self in love and perfect alignment.
You feel lighter and lighter, and your bed circles around the Healing Pyramid, before heading to the open door. You see a long line of people outside. You can’t see their faces, but you know they are people from your past, present and future lives, and you know you that you – and they – must sever any and all energetic chords so you can all heal and move forward.
Call on Michael to help you with this, and observe as, one by one, the chords are cut, and the people in line are able to move into the Healing Pyramid to access their own beds, and their Higher Selves.
You float serenely across the night sky on your emerald bed, and notice the numbers 2020 picked out in stars beneath you. You thank Raphael, Zadkiel, Michael and Jesus for their love and healing, and descend into the star pattern, feeling joyful and light as you return to your body in the present moment. It is done.
