Expanding Consciousness Exercise
Allow yourself to relax in an environment where there is little disturbance. Close your eyes and take a few deep, cleansing breaths.
Feel your present energy as it sits within your body. Focus upon the center of your forehead, and allow all of your attention to move into your sense of ‘being.’ Center all of your focus upon the ‘mind’ part of self.
Envision a tree that is familiar to you. It may be one that grows in your yard or one that you pass by frequently. Allow your consciousness to enter into the tree, becoming one with the energy of it. Feel the ‘beingness’ of the tree. Feel the way the tree breathes, grows….feel and sense your own consciousness inhabiting it as its branches reach up to the sunlight.
Now allow your consciousness to move into the various parts of the tree; the leaves, the tiny branches that branch off from the larger ones, the roots. Really allow yourself to get a sense of ‘being’ as you visualize and feel your way through the various parts of the tree.
Next, allow your consciousness to become to air surrounding the tree. Feel the freedom of movement as you swirl and dance around the tree, sustaining it and all of the life forms it encompasses.
Next, move your focused consciousness to the sun. Become the fiery ball of energy that sustains all of life upon earth. Feel the power within and become one with it.
Allow your sense of being to expand further. Become the creator of that sun and everything that benefits from it. Feel the intent behind your creation. Perceive how it feels to have the kind of confidence and power to create on that grand scale. Own this confidence and power and spend several moments reveling in it.
Now, allow your consciousness to expand yet further. Become the energy force beyond the creator of the earthly plane. Feel your consciousness expand to a vastness that knows no boundaries. Spend as much time here as feels comfortable.
To come out of this exercise, move your consciousness backwards through each step you took previously until you are once again focusing upon the spot in your forehead."
