Heaven and Earth Energy Clearing Meditation

Heaven and Earth Energy Clearing Meditation

In one way or the other, many spiritual teachers have said that your ability to reach to the heavens is dependent on how deep your roots are in the mud on the earth. One especially powerful method of staying present, balanced, and centered throughout the day is to experience yourself as a conduit for the flowing energies of the earth and heavens.

Feel the vortexes of energy flow through your body as you experience the union of heaven and earth within; the meditation will help you be energetically clean and clear:

When you make the two one,
and when you make the inner as the outer
and the outer as the inner
and the above as the below,
and when you make the male
and female into a single one–
then shall you enter the Kingdom.
–Jesus in the Gospel of Saint Thomas

Since the electrical conductance at your feet and at your head have inverse properties, there’s actually a basis in the body’s bioelectrodynamics to support this practice. The universality of this method is reflected in the fact that variations of it have been used in many cultures around the globe for thousands of years. This is how it goes:

1. As you sit or stand quietly, sense or vividly imagine a dynamic powerful spiral of energy rising from the earth up through your body and then opening into the sky. Just be with this image or this sense for a few moments, allowing it to emerge as naturally as possible in your awareness. Breathing in, draw the energy of the earth up and into you. Exhaling, feel this flow of energy rising up through your body and opening upward into the sky, drawing the energy of the earth up and into yourself, and then offering it upward and into the sky.

Imagine this rising vortex of energy spiraling through you with a deep and powerful cleansing action. This dust-busting vortex dissolves any blockages to the free flow of the energy of your whole mindbody and leaves you feeling clean and clear.

2. As you breathe, this time simply allow the flow of earth energy to continue to rise and flow in the background. Now, focus your attention so that as you inhale you imagine drawing a vortex of energy or light down into you from the heavens above. Use all the special effects you can to make the visualization as vivid or as deeply felt as possible. Can you now imagine that you fill yourself with the energy of the heavens, and that as you exhale, it spirals down and through you into the earth?
