Energizing Meditation by D. B. Mauldin
The Yin and Yang, feminine and masculine, moon and sun, dark and light, the balance of all. Yang is seen as being an active, light energy. The sun is a masculine, light energy.
The sun is a marvel and mysterious life-giving source. It is essential to life on Mother Earth. The sun warms us and gives us light to see. The sun emits energy for solar wind, warms Mother Earth, and provides the energy for life. Without the sun, there would be no plant or human life.
The sun is a powerful source. Our job is to help keep the balance between Mother Earth and the Sun. We can help do this by keeping our balance energized.
Begin by breathing, noticing your breathing, slowing down your breathing, and becoming one with the breath. Relax, breathe relaxation into all parts of your body. When you feel relaxed in your breath, begin to imagine the sun. Let the sun slowly warm you. Draw the warmth into your muscles, bones, heart, into all the deep recesses of your inner body.
Breathe in the suns warm energy. Feel your mind becoming energized. Breathe the suns warm energy into all parts of your body. Feel them becoming energized. When you feel energized from the top of your head to the tip of your toes, reach out and feel the warm energy surrounding you. Feel even further and blend with the suns energy in all plants, animals, and every human being. Imagine sending all this energy into Mother Earth.
Stay in your breath and relax in the warm energy. Embrace it in every way. Stay here as long as you need.
When you feel ready, bring your focus back to your breath. Slowly bring your focus back to yourself. Feel the energy that flows within you. Know that you are connected to all life energy. Know that you have helped bring the balanced energy back to Mother Earth and the Sun.
Breathe deeply a couple of times, then open your eyes. You should now feel balanced and energized. You should feel connected to Mother Earth and the Sun.
If you do not already perform yoga, there is a wonderful pose entitled ‘Sun Salutation’. It is easy to learn for beginners and is a good way to connect yourself to the sun every morning. You can find out more here:
