Become water – a shamanic journey

Can you imagine with your heart and mind and all your senses, your body dissolving and becoming one with a stream of water? First, imagine yourself there in the stream, floating. Feel the silky water supporting your body as you float.

Now breathe and relax any tension in your head and face, your neck, shoulders, trunk, arms and hands, back, buttocks, legs, feet and toes.

Feel your physical reality gently dissolve and merge with the stream of water, allowing more and more space between your cells, letting any pain or anxiety drain away, releasing all worry, all fear, just letting yourself be. Don’t worry about breathing as water, it will come naturally.

Can you imagine your cells gently becoming water droplets and moving easily with the flow of the current? Can you imagine yourself growing transparent? How does it feel, smell, look and sound like?

Nothing is more relaxed! You are suspended in the water, one with the water. You are the water!

There is nothing you have to do, nowhere to be, nothing to grasp, clutch, hold on to or resist. There is no need to hold yourself up, to think or worry or fight against. You float free, allowing the current to carry you.

Can you feel yourself flow easily around boulders, rushing where the stream bed is steep, falling over stone ledges, standing still in deep pools? Can you feel the warm sunlight striking the water and see it bending into the vibrant colors of the rainbow?

Now your stream merges with a larger river. Enjoy the beautiful landscape as you drift past; the trees, the wide river valley, as you flow smoothly, one with the life-giving water.

Now after many hundreds of miles, you enter a huge estuary, full of birds and wildlife of all descriptions, drawn to the life-giving waters. The river widens out and becomes salty as you enter the ocean surf and move out beyond the crashing waves into open water. Finally, you are home, where all water joins to become one. Here you can expand even more, suspended. One with all that is.

Enjoy the sensation of oneness with the water as long as you want to. Allow the water to clear and heal you. Allow it to sustain and support you. Let yourself be.

When you’re ready to call back your physical being and find your way back to solid earth, let your feet touch the floor, tap your cheekbones and chest, breathe.

Revisit this water journey whenever you want to relax and know your oneness with all that is.

Your inner light

Take a journey with me to your inner light .

Allow yourself to enter into a meditation where you imagine letting go of everything you own, your body, your identity, everything you think and feel, until only your brilliant inner light is left.

Surrender for a little while your grasp on the physical objects around you. Imagine that there is nothing you need to keep track of, nothing to count, nothing to organize or pay for. Surrender all of it.

Now imagine if you can, your precious physical body dissolving until you are nothing but energy. Release it.

Now imagine letting go of your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and your identity. Release what is in your mind and heart. You are simply allowing yourself to be with no agenda, no worries, no regrets.

Finally, imagine your spirit floating free and expansive, with nothing weighing it down.

Now, as you enter into this great silence, know the pure light at your center.

Now, slowly come back to your physical existence, retrieving those thoughts, beliefs and feelings that are good for you. Leave the others behind. Now imagine your body regenerating in a way that pleases you. Now once again surround yourself with the objects around you, those that are useful, those that you love. Let the others go. 

Allow yourself to feel gratitude for your existence and all the blessings you have in your life.

Let me repeat: You are the light.  Your light is the foundation your entire life is built on and the blueprint for your body. Feel it, be it, know it.
