“The more of me I be,
The clearer I can see.”
~ Rachel Archelaus

Today I’ve prepared a short guided meditation to help you to truly connect to your power word for 2015.

If you haven’t yet chosen your power word go back and choose it here.

If you have a crystal that you’d like to nominate to hold the energy of your power word, go ahead and select one. It’s also fine to do this meditation without a crystal. Just do what feels right for you.

Here’s the rock that I’m going to use in conjunction with my power word in 2015:

2014-12-30 20.41.18

It’s a banded milky quartz and fire quartz from the Gibb River in the Kimberley. The stone is river smoothed, but pock-marked and imperfect, and it still holds tiny traces of dirt from the muddy river bank where I found it.

My power word for 2015 is BUILD and when I hold this stone I feel that energy of building. My stone has dirt still embedded in its cracks, it is solid and well used, and it feels honest somehow. The bands of colour in the stone remind me of the need for me to take small but consistent steps. The darker thicker layer at the bottom of the stone prompts me to build solid foundations.

Use your intuition and I know you’ll be guided to the right crystal choice. Feel free to post a pic and your power word over on our facebook page so we can share a little good energy for the build-up to 2015.

I also encourage you to keep a journal handy so that you can record any insights after your power word meditation is finished.

Guided Meditation.

Read through the simple instructions first, before completing this activity in your own time.

Hold your crystal in your cupped hands and close your eyes. Spend a minute relaxing your body and then bring your attention to your power word.

Imagine your word as a colour. Imagine your word as an energy.

Notice where in your body you feel this word.

Now ask yourself ‘How can this word help me in 2015?’

Sit or lie quietly, holding your crystal, and open yourself to any answers, insights or images that come. Keep asking yourself that question. Wait for more answers, each time allowing yourself to go deeper.

When you are done, bring your attention to the crystal. Visualise the colour and energy of your word enter the stone. See the word shining brightly inside your stone. Then see your word shining brightly in you – in your heart and in your mind.

When you’re ready, bring your attention back into the room and record any insights or understandings in your journal.

During 2015, try to do this simple meditation weekly to help keep you focused and on track.

“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.” 
~ Albert Einstein

I’m a firm believer in the power of imagination. Connecting in to pleasurable memories, imaginings or visualisations has a proven positive affect upon our mood, our creative ability and our energetic vibration. It reduces stress, inflammation and anxiety and helps magnetise us to further abundance and good.

(Note: Conversely, this also works with dwelling on negativities, worries and past pains  darkening our mood, increasing stress, thwarting our creativity and lowering our vibration – so try your best not to go in that direction…)

There’s a question game my friends and I like to play sometimes. It involves using our imagination to take us somewhere fabulous, and then sharing that experience with each other. In fact, hearing about someone else’s magical journey has often inspired the rest of us to make real life travel plans, or at least menu choices!

And at times when my life has been less than wonderful, this game has kept me thinking of a brighter tomorrow, and got me through some less than great days. Many of the things I’ve imagined have ended up coming true. How fun is that!!!

So, my lovelies, why not play this game with me?

Read through the questions, and if you feel like sharing, post your answer below or over on our facebook page.

Here goes!

If I had a Tardis…

And a magical Wallet full of local currency…

And I lent them to you, so that tomorrow morning you could wake up anywhere in the world for a magical 24 hours where you had no worries, vibrant energy and zero food intolerances/medical conditions/other encumbrances, and only good could happen…

1) Where would you be?

2) Who would you be with?

3) What would you have for breakfast (or lunch or dinner)?

and

4) What would you do with your day?

Have fun with it!

Lots of love,  ♥ Nicole xx

PS – My 24 hours? While my puppies are being lovingly taken care of back at our farm I’ll wake up in a private bungalow right on the beach in a beautiful and remote part of Thailand. Of course my husband will be beside me! After my meditation we’ll go for a swim in the warm, tranquil ocean, enjoying the quiet and our own company. After a long walk along the beach we’ll dine on fresh papaya and lime, salad and a made-to-order omelette. Then a trip to visit some temples and local markets – lots of walking around and taking in the atmosphere, snacking on delicious Thai food and drinks. Later we’ll go for a massage and be completely spoiled with pampering. Perhaps another dip in the ocean. Then a romantic candlelit seafood dinner on the beach, before dancing the rest of the night away.

How about you?
