As thoughts enter your mind, envision them placed upon a wide, flat leaf, then carried away on the gentle breeze. Acknowledge their presence, then allow them to leave, making space and time for you to be at peace. As people enter your mind, acknowledge them, then allow them to drift outside your garden, away and beyond this space and time you have set apart for yourself. As any worry or concern enters your mind, acknowledge it and simply allow it to float away.It is good and right that your thoughts should visit you, but understand that you do not need to hold tightly to them in order to solve or “fix” them. By acknowledging and releasing these thoughts, your subconscious – the part of you that knows you best – becomes activated for your best interests. Your subconscious becomes free to unravel any puzzles, unconstrained by the restrictive emotions and logic our conscious mind normally applies.
Instead we focus on our breath. Inhale. Breathe in the crisp air of our garden, surrounded by our favorite plants and trees. Exhale. Breathe out all tension and stress. Inhale. Allow the air to fill your body, feeling it energize your torso, legs and feet. Exhale. Releasing the muscles in your thighs and calves. Inhale. Focused only on the sweet peacefulness of this moment. Exhale. relaxing the muscles in your feet and releasing your toes against the earth.
Feel this warmth and happiness in the garden which you have created for yourself. This garden is alive and thriving, mature yet healthy. The trees have taken firm root and spread their branches to form a sheltered canopy. The beauty of this season, of this month, of this day, and of this moment fills your heart.
Any lingering doubts and worries drift to the edges of your vision and fall away, consumed by the earth. Any remaining tension descends from your forehead, your eyes, your cheeks, your jaw, your neck, your shoulders, down your spine, disbursing through your pelvis and thighs and calves and feet to the ground below where it dissipates and meshes with the energy of the planet.
Feel free to conceptualize your ideal job, your perfect partner, and healthy relationships with coworkers, friends, and family. This garden exists for you and you alone. It is made up of nourishing soil and elements you can draw upon for inspiration. As the plants in your garden exist in harmony, imagine your life – your future self – living in harmony with all that surrounds you.
Inhale energy. Breathe in joy and confidence. Exhale peace, releasing that energy in a cyclical exchange with the earth and all that surrounds you. You will be able to return to this garden at any time and it will be here for you, ready to nourish you and feed your dreams, filled with the knowledge and spirits of those who’ve come before, nurtured by time and love and your own special gifts you bring with you.
Because you do have gifts. And they are ready to be shared with the world.
You were placed here with a higher purpose. You were meant to shine and to share your radiance with those around you. You have a message that will lift others and inspire them to a greater future.
When you allow your light to shine fully, it warms those around you whose lights may have faded or been extinguished by outside forces. Your presence in their lives, and the gift of your time and talents, and your caring and thoughtfulness, will infuse them – as it infuses you now – giving you both strength once more, allowing you and them to find your true paths again.
Inhale light. Breathe in the power and warmth of knowing you can strengthen yourself. Exhale love, knowing your gifts will light the way for others to recover hope and joy which may have been lost. Inhale peace. You are discovering the life you were always meant to live. Exhale doubt. Each day brings you closer to the joy and serenity you were meant to have.
Inhale prosperity. You are alive and rich in mind and spirit. Exhale fear. You and your subconscious have access to all the tools you need to thrive.
As you emerge from your garden, remember you can visit here as often as you need. The energy and strength of this place travel with you, and are always close at hand.
Feel the earth beneath your feet, feel the connection rising up and into your legs and spreading through your whole body. Feel the energy awakening you and bringing you back into the moment of now. Feel the tranquility and inspiration of your garden following you as you return to your human body, ready and energized for the day ahead.
Let this energy flow throughout your limbs. When you are ready, bring your palms together. Raise your folded hands to your face, placing your thumbs beneath your chin and your pointer fingers at the tip of your nose.
Inhale strength, courage and wisdom, breathing in the elements necessary for you to live with wild and passionate abundance. Exhale confidence. You’ve got this. You will have access to all the tools you need to live joyfully.
Bring your folded hands to your heart. Say, “Namaste.” I bow to you, I acknowledge your soul. There is a divine spark within you. Go in peace.
