Meditation plays a large part on your journey to rediscovering your authentic self as it helps you to open your heart to more self-love and compassion.
I love what Ringo Starr says about how it also helps to keeps him calm and level headed…
“At the end of the day, I can end up just totally wacky, because I’ve made mountains out of molehills. With meditation, I can keep them as molehills.” ~Ringo Starr

Your Free Green Heart Meditation (Starts at 7:56min)
I’ve also included a FREE Green Heart Meditation to get you going and help you to open up to greater self-acceptance and unconditional love.
Enjoy the process and remember to breathe and be mindful!
Choose a comfortable space in your home where you will not be disturbed for the next 15 minutes and sitting upright, just relax, close your eyes and begin by concentrating on your breath.
Throughout this meditation we are going to be focussing on self-acceptance and and increasing our compassion and unconditional love for ourself and others.
Slowly, breathe in deeply to the count of 5, allowing your belly to expand, followed by your chest so your lungs are full of air. Hold for another 5 seconds and finally slowly breathe out for about 7 seconds until your lungs are completely empty.
Repeat the process several times to deepen your relaxation but this time when you breathe in imagine that you are inhaling peace as a vibrant white light and exhaling any form of tension or
anxiety as a dark cloud. Slowing everything down so that your whole body starts to feel loose and floppy, heavy and warm.
Take a few moments to observe the weight of your body either in the chair or on the floor and any sounds that can hear either close up or far away.
Any thoughts or feelings that come in, simply observe without judgement and imagine them being gently wafted away with a paper fan and return your focus to the breath. Breathing in peace as a white light and tension as a dark cloud.
I’d like you to imagine a beautiful golden light, similar to sunshine beaming down through the top of your head and allow it to flood down throughout your entire being. This warming light travels down through the face, neck and shoulders, arms and hands, chest and stomach, hips and thighs, knees and calves, ankles and feet and finally the toes, filling your entire being. Allow the light to dissolve any areas of tension that you notice are stored at various points of the body as it beams through. Allow this area to relax to its highest capacity in this moment. Move onto the next area until you reach your heart centre.
At the same time, imagine energetic roots growing down from your feet into the ground beneath you, connecting you to Mother Earth. Allow these roots to continue to penetrate deep into the ground, further and further into the earth until they reach the centre and connect to a bright green light which travels up these roots until it also reaches the centre of your chest, the location of your heart chakra.
Observe any thoughts and feelings and continue to waft them away with your paper fan. Allow this green light at the centre of your chest to be your only focus.
As you continue to breathe in, imagine this green light intensifying in color and gaining power and momentum in a circular, clockwise motion. The light glows brightly like a large emerald.
Observe any sensations that you are holding in your heart chakra. It may feel warm or cold, numb or tingly or even painful.
Consciously choose to release these sensations as you breathe golden light into this area.
Imagine them dissolving and disappearing, allowing your green light to shine even more brightly.
Try not to analyze whatever your are consciously releasing. Simply set the intention to let go of all that no longer serves your highest good.
Continue to breathe in golden light and imagine the red light expanding in all directions as far as you feel comfortable.
I would now like you to repeat the following affirmations…
I am grateful for all the blessings in my life.
I forgive myself and others with ease.
I am compassionate towards myself and others.
Through my vulnerability I connect to others more deeply.
I see others for who they are and love them unconditionally.
Love flows to and from me in a balanced manner.
I am able to give to others without depleting myself.
Now simply return to the breath. Breathing in for 5 seconds, holding and then breathing out for 7 seconds. As you breathe out imagine any last remaining tension leaving your body and observe your green light now brighter than ever.
Notice how you are feeling now. Just sit with that for a few moments before starting to become more aware of the weight of the body in your chair or on the floor. Listening out for any sounds
that you can hear either close up or far away and in your own time as I count up from 5 to 1 you begin to become more aware of your surroundings and when you open your eyes you are feeling better than before with a renewed sense of energy and vitality. 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1….
Opening your eyes and taking a deep breathe and enjoy having a stretch to welcome back in the day…
