Today I’m gifting a specialised meditation designed for a deep connection and healing – a solution to the people who have much loved old folks in hospitals and in aged care, who are in lockdown away from them and maybe even dying alone.
Well… solution is too strong a word because the most preferred solution would mean that you walked into their room, held their hand and got to tell them that you love them and so many people can’t do that. What I’m offering is an opportunity to deeply and consciously connect with them however far away you are, flow healing energy to them … and still get to tell them that you love them.
You don’t have to be with them, to be WITH them.
Those of us who work in a deep and conscious connection with our horse have often experienced a practical connection with our horses – and with people – across vast distances. If we can do it with horses we can do it with people.
I can give you example after example. Young Hannah solved her horse’s catching problem when she was consciously connecting to her from the other side of the country. Three months later she came home from her long time away, walked into the pasture and the previously impossible to catch horse came running to her. Sue meditated with her horses every night that she was away in America and six weeks later when she got home, they all acted like they’d seen her yesterday. (Which HADN’T been the case on previous long trips away.) I’ve been practicing calling my horses up from the paddock in my head. It’s not completely reliable, but it seems to be getting results more often than not these days. (If you’re a facebook friend you may have seen my post about an experience we had yesterday.)
The strength of the people to people connection constantly lifts my heart. When Narel had that giant fire rolling right over the top of their farm in New South Wales during this last terrible fire season, Sue and I in Victoria and Caroline in Portugal knew exactly when that fire was hitting them and energetically gathered around her with strength and support AND she felt it. I know there were others supporting her too. When I mentally called out to the girls on staff here the morning Celtic Peace was to be put down, I felt Narel from half way across Australia wrap me in a loving hug that brought almost instant peace. Caroline in Portugal has felt the same loving support from us when she was grieving her husband’s death. All without any words and across vast distances. Level 2 Reiki channels even have a format to experience that connection and send healing across distance. I have many, many more everyday kind of examples – I invite students and readers alike to put your own experiences in the comments section below.
None of this stuff is “just” the province of psychics or airy fairies. We laugh at that idea, because our Feel for others is a result of a practical connection to our horses that is experienced by anyone and everyone who has the desire for it.
They don’t have to die alone
For Rosemary with love and a hug
Experiencing a deeper connection with your horse is just good practice that easily flows into experiencing a deeper connection with all others, including people.
It would take too long to teach everyone who wants to support their loved ones, the Feel for their horse or other animal that would give them the confidence in what I’m talking about. So what I’ve done is create a meditation, combined with giving you access to my reiki healing grid, so you can connect with your loved ones regularly, so that they too can feel wrapped up with your love and support even if you’re stuck miles away.
The reiki healing grid is kind of like surrounding people in a bubble of reiki healing energy. Through the meditation and your own experience of the reiki energy while you’re in the meditation, I’m going to guide you to consciously support your loved ones, just like Narel did for me that memorable morning. I won’t put more detail about the grid in this article, you can read more about it here if you’re particularly interested.
The glorious music that I’m using is Deva Premal and Miten’s – you can find more of their incredibly special music on their website here or look them up on Facebook, they’ve been doing live chanting meditations every morning during lockdown.
If you’re incredibly stressed, you might like to do this meditation repeatedly for yourself first and then LATER do it again to include your loved one, so that you’re in the best shape to support them. It’s up to you – you can download and use this meditation as often as you like and share it as often as you like too. There’s a written version below. If you’re unwell, there’s also another meditation specifically for drawing on the grid for healing for yourself here.
There’s also a section in the meditation where we start flowing the energy through to your loved one, where – if it feels right for you – you could even reach out and feel yourself holding their hand. You can choose to do this or not, the healing energy will be running beautifully whatever you choose.
You can download this meditation to your computer and then on to your phone or other mobile device, by right mouse clicking on this link and “save link as” or “save target as” or whatever your program likes to call it. Then follow the prompts to save it. You’ll find it in your Downloads file, labelled “Reiki meditation for loved ones”.
Written version of the meditation
What we’re going to do first in this meditation is to find peacefulness and support for OURSELVES – we’re going to make a commitment to be gentle on ourselves, we’re going to draw the reiki healing energy into our own bodies and let go however much stress and tension that we’ve been storing in our body, that is perfect to let go of right now – so that we’re in the best shape to be supporting our loved ones. When we’ve found peacefulness for ourselves, we’re going to flow this loving reiki energy out to your loved one.
Breathing in and out, gently focusing on the outward breath… Notice what’s happening to your body on the outward breath, notice the parts of your body that are moving on your outward breath . Just noticing the way that the lower part of your ribs just squashes the breath out of your lungs. And don’t do that on purpose, just notice the way that your ribs are moving the air from your lungs.
Notice as you’re paying attention to your outward breath that the movement of your ribs is becoming easier, more relaxed and more flowing.
Notice the tiny little pause that is starting to come at the bottom of your outward breath, where for just a split second, you don’t need to breathe in at all. And you’re not doing that on purpose. Just notice what’s happening at the bottom of that outward breath. Soften your eyes and allow them to smile just a little and just notice that pause that may or may not be there yet, at the bottom of your outward breath.
Notice the feeling in your body as you smile with your eyes. Notice everything about how good it feels to smile with your eyes like this and notice how good it feels to be gentle on ourselves.
Still paying gentle attention to your outward breath.
And smiling with your eyes. Now gently decide to draw on the beautiful energy in that reiki grid for yourself. That’s it… Smiling ahhh eyes. If energy’s your thing to notice, notice that flow of the reiki energy into your body, or notice the warmth of it, and the rightness of it. Notice your shoulders relaxing downwards, notice your face softening.
Soak up that beautiful energy. Allow yourself to be aware of your whole body, knowing how perfectly your own body works at its own healing and relaxation, flowing with the reiki energy and the perfection of that healing and relaxation,
Smiling with your soft ahhh eyes, EMBRACING the support that you’re feeling, LOVING the support that you’re feeling from this beautiful energy,
When you feel ready, and still smiling with your soft ahhh eyes – just intend for this beautiful relaxing energy to flow through to your loved one with all your love. If intention alone feels too vague for you, you can say in your mind “send this energy through to …. ” but your intention is all it takes.
For the next few minutes, allow the glorious voice of Deva Premal and Miten and the Om Ram Ramaya mantra and this beautiful reiki healing energy, to bring you more and more peacefulness and your loved one more and more support…
…This is Deva and Miten singing the Om Ram Ramaya… This mantra activates balance, strength and healing in the body. The sound Ram brings powerful balancing and healing qualities directly into your physical body, mind and emotions.
The words to the chant:
Om bhur bhuvah svaha tat savitur varenyam
bhargo devasya dhimahi
dhiyo yo nah prachodayat.
Still paying gentle attention to that outward breath, feel down to your feet while you’re sitting there and become aware of how they feel on the ground, flex your toes and really feel into the ground with them. Flex all your feet and give them a good wriggle.
Then when you’re ready, ground yourself by going for a slow walk around the room, being very aware of what your body feels like and the feel of your feet on the ground, flexing your feet and specially your toes and do this for as long as it feels good to do it.
Then take this healing, this relaxation and your easier mind out into the rest of your day.
If you haven’t downloaded this meditation yet, then you can do that now. There’s no limit to this beautiful energy, you can repeat this as often as you like.
