Star Meditation for Cleansing
This beautiful meditation radiates a blessing of light outwards to the whole world, and will confer a blessing on you, as well. It is particularly suited for cleansing, helping to neutralize unhappiness and suffering and bringing in the healing light of renewal.
It is based around the six-pointed star that was understood by the ancient mystery schools as an emblem of the individual woman or man, feet planted firmly upon the earth, but aspiring to heavenly consciousness. Find out how to do this simple meditation, here:
The six-pointed star is the intersection of two equilateral triangles, the upward-pointing one representing our earthly self and the downward-pointing one, the god-consciousness which descends in an embrace of brilliant illumination whenever we reach consciously upward into the spiritual spheres. Together, the two triangles make the star that is a symbol of humanity perfected.
1. Stand comfortably with spine erect and relaxed, perhaps near an open window, and begin to focus on your breathing. Think of your heart-center and the little flame burning there.
2. See this point of light within your own heart grow until it connects with a larger six-pointed star, shining above your head in the spiritual skies. Breathe in the light that pours forth from the star, and soon, on the out-breath, you will feel able to consciously direct these magical shafts of golden white light flooding from the heart of the star, and from its six points, out into the world of suffering and despairing humanity–where they will bring succor and comfort, healing and renewal, and a cleansing of unhappy conditions. Remember always that within the star are the forms of the great angels of love, of wisdom, and of power; and that these radiant angelic beings can be called upon at any time to assist us in living our lives.
