elemental meditation

THE ELEMENTAL MEDITATION

This is one of several versions. This meditation was inspired by the crystal meditation (power of the witch by Laurie Cabot) and the Hindu system of elements; earth, fire, wind, water, sound, light, and thought. As with all meditation have loose or no clothing on (your choice) and get into your favorite position for meditating. This meditation follows the vibrational rate of frequency of each element. This first version is for those of us who can�t see in their mind�s eye what they want to visualize.
Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths.
Now concentrate on something that is earthy (how dirt feels, what your favorite crystal feels like, etc�)
Concentrate on that sensation (using as many senses as you can) for as long as you can. You will eventually be able to hold onto it for as long as you want with practice.
Now concentrate on something that is watery (water itself, ice, waterfalls, rivers, etc�)
Concentrate on that sensation for as long as you can.
Next onto something airy (clouds, the feel of a feather, incense, etc�).
Concentrate on that sensation for as long as you can.
And now something that is fiery (heat from the sun, sound of a raging bon fire, etc�.).
Concentrate on that sensation for as long as you can.
Now the next three might only be able to be experienced with only one sense (depends on the person).
Think of a sound that is relaxing and pleasant to you and hear this sound. Let the sound fill your being.
Concentrate on that sensation for as long as you can.
Think of aspects of light that you can feel with needing to actually see light and let that awareness permeate you.
Concentrate on that sensation for as long as you can.
And last but not least think of something that could represent the element of thought even if it is just an idea.
Concentrate on that sensation for as long as you can.

VERSION 2

Do as for the first version. Once you have mastered the first version you can try to use your mind�s eye to actually see each element.
Close your eyes and using all of your physical senses visualize something that represents the element of earth. (Dirt, sand, rocks, crystals, etc�)
Hold that image as long as you can.
Now do thing same thing for water (water, ice, snow, etc�).
Hold that image as long as you can.
Again do the same for air (feathers, clouds, tornadoes, etc�).
Hold that image as long as you can.
And now for fire (candle flame, lava, the sun, etc�).
Hold that image as long as you can.
Now visualize something that represents sound to you (a musical symbol, instrument, music book, etc�).
Hold that image as long as you can.
Now see something that has to do with light (light bulb, laser beam, etc�).
Hold that image as long as you can.
And lastly envision something that embodies the element of light (anything that symbolizes thought to you)
Hold that image as long as you can.

VERSION 3

This one is going to be a bit harder than the last version.
You are going do basically the same thing as the last method but you are going to invoke the picture of each element in the shape of a number; eather-7, water-6, air-5, fire-4, sound-3, light-2, and thought-1 onto a black background.

VERSION 4

This one is similar to the last one except you are going to use 2 different pics for each element; one for the number and one for the background behind the number. So you are going do something like visualize a rocky 7 on a leafy background.
You will not only relax but learn to concentrate better as you progress through each version. You can also make the meditation more complicated as you master each version. This is the third (and probably last) time I worked on this meditation, I kept getting new ideas to make it better and easier.

This blog came up when I was looking for stuff on "Screenplay Analysis". That's sort of odd, but I guess these engines can find connections in many ways. I'm a screenwriter, script consultant, and author, so I'm always keeping my eyes open for interesting people, stories, ideas, etc...so thanks for being out in the blog-o-sphere!
