I have called this guided visualization exercise “Life Energy”. It is a meditative exercise for you and your consciousness.
It aims to cleanse, strengthen, vitalize and harmonize you, as well as to create deep peace and an overall sense of well-being within you.
In doing so, we use the visualization of light, which in many traditions is an image for a healing life energy. In Reiki we call this universal life energy Ki – most people are more familiar with Chinese Chi. Hildegard von Bingen called it “Viriditas”, the “green power”, which she describes as a basic force inherent in all of nature, i.e. humans, animals, plants and minerals.
Before you start, please make sure that you are undisturbed for the next 20 minutes or so. If you like, light a candle and an aroma lamp. Then find a comfortable sitting position, either on a chair or on a meditation cushion or stool on the floor. You may also want to put a blanket around you to feel warm and secure. In principle, it is also possible to meditate lying down, but there is a risk that you will fall asleep.
