The White Light Meditation Kriya
Transcript of one of the lectures of MeditationKriya Teacher along with his personal experience.
The White Light Meditation Kriya is a very simple one that enables you to deeply relax in order to find your centre. I am going to put this as if you were someone who has never meditated or done this kind of inner work previously, and if I have oversimplified it for you please forgive me. I would rather that you had too many instructions than not enough. You may find it helpful to read this onto a cassette tape in order that you can listen to it while you are journeying inwardly, as opposed to constantly having to return back to the notes all the time. At least read the paragraph several times, so that you have firmly in your mind what you are doing when you commence. I start all my meditations kriya with this simple, white light meditation. It is a significator to the psyche of the work that is to come, as well as a relaxational tool for the body.
It may help to work with a crystal as you do this. The crystal does not have to be expensive or large or in anyway extraordinary, just a small stone with which you feel comfortable. I would recommend either a rose quartz or a small clear quartz point or tumbled stone. Unplug the phone and remove yourself as much as possible from any interruptions. Sit upright and straight in a comfortable chair, with your feet flat on the floor and your hands on your lap, palms upward and fingers and wrists uncrossed. This enables the energies to travel around and through the body without hindrance. Some relaxing music in the background may or may not help; this is a matter of taste but I like working with flute music or something equally as gentle. Subtle lighting also helps, rather than direct light. Personally, I like working with firelight or candles, as the flame is a living light and seems to attract the attention of the spirit realm more than manmade light. Also, I might point out at this point that if you fall asleep doing this the first time, that is fine. The purpose of this exercise is to relax and focus the body, and if you are not used to working in this manner you may find indeed it is so relieved at being allowed to relax that it does fall asleep. Just keep trying. Like anything, with practice you will succeed.
Thus prepared, we will begin.
Shut your eyes [keep them closed throughout the #meditationkriya] and take three deep breaths, in through your nose and out through your mouth. As you exhale, begin to feel your body relax. Turn your attention to your head, the very top of your scalp, and let any tension you may be holding drain away from your body and out of the soles of your feet. Check your eyebrows, eyes, and ears for tension, and let it simply drain away out of the soles of your feet. Now your cheeks, your jaw, your chin, until you have checked your entire head, and let any tension drain away through the soles of your feet. Move down to your throat and neck and shoulders, check for any tension that you may be holding and let it drain away through the soles of your feet. Travel down your arms and make sure you are not holding any tension in your biceps, elbows, wrists, hands, or fingers. Return back to your armpits and check your chest area, your ribs and your back, all the while letting any tension you may be holding drain away through the soles of your feet. Your upper body should now be completely relaxed and free of any tension or stress. Turn your attention to your lower abdomen, your stomach, hips, buttox, pubic region, and let any tension or stress that you may be held there just drain away out of the soles of your feet. Move on down your thighs, knees, calves and shins, and let the tension drain away. Finally check your feet themselves, your ankles, arches, heels and toes, and let all the tensions of the day drain away. Do a check on the body, and remove any tension that may have crept back, and release it, so that your whole body is relaxed and free of tension. As you sit completely relaxed, you will see a speck of white light appearing below your feet. As you focus on it it appears, bigger and brighter, till it is touching the soles of your feet. Keep it there, keep it controlled, and just let it touch the soles of your feet with its brilliant and comforting warmth. Let it raise over the tops of your feet and hold it at ankle level, and let your feet bathe in the beautiful and pure white light. Now slowly let it swirl up around your shins and calves to your knees, and hold it there at knee level for a few moments. Gently let it engulf your thighs, and slowly rise around your buttocks and hips, till from the waist down you are surrounded in pure gentle white light. Let it rise up to your armpits, around your bosom and your ribs, and let it swirl and dance around your body. Slowly let it rise again, to swirl down each arm, covering your wrists and fingertips. Bring it up around your neck. Gently let it rise over your chin, and the nape of your neck, your mouth and nose, ears and eyes, forehead, and finally the crown of your head, so you are completely immersed in white light. Now bathe in the beautiful pure white light. Feel its energies swirling around you. Breathe in the white light. Breathe out the white light. Become the white light. You may stay here, deeply relaxed and totally safe in the pure white light until you are ready to return to the physical waking world. When you are ready, take three deep breaths again, in through your nose and out through your mouth. On the first breath, you will be aware of the chair under you. On the second breath, you will be aware of the room around you. And on the third breath open your eyes.
Now that you are back into a waking awareness, ground yourself by getting something light to eat and drink [non-alcoholic, please]. It helps to write down your experiences in a diary or journal so that you can look back on them in times to come and see what progress you are making. I’d be interested in hearing about your experiences with the meditation, for everyone is different, and responds in different ways.
