use this meditation when you feel afraid to speak or drained by anxiety. imagine the taste of cold water on your lips, on your tongue, and down your throat. it tastes clear and clean and life-giving. when you drink this water, your mouth is left with the faint taste of sweetness. any dryness you were experiencing before is completely gone. you feel invigorated and calm. you open your mouth as if to speak and you feel the spilling of a thousand stories floating out of you. they come out freely, weaving color and light into the air around you. you see them shimmering and dancing, extending out into the trees and the grass, and in the blue sky beyond. you are heard and cared for.
use this meditation when you are afraid of adventure. imagine being born. all the possibilities there. in front of you the whole world wide open for you to grow in. the potential, simultaneously buzzing within you and expanding beyond. the potential feels soft and welcoming. you feel held, gently, in such a way that you feel supported and open. your bright and fresh eyes look towards the horizon and you see in front of you the whole world wide open for you to grow in. the landscapes are varied but they are all within reach. you see yourself as part of them, and they a part of you.
use this meditation when you feel unloved. relax into your body. rub your belly in circles. hear divine mother singing to you. you are held by her now and always have been. there is nothing that you must hold alone. allow yourself to be supported. allow yourself to be heard. it feels like floating.
