CANDLE MEDITATION FOR EARTH HOUR

Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
-Buddha

On Saturday, March 26, 2011 at 8:30 PM, turn off your lights, take a stand against climate change and celebrate Earth Hour.   Together we WILL make the world a better place.

What will you do without lights for an hour? It’s the perfect time for a CANDLE MEDITATION.

Simple Candle Meditation

You need a Quiet Place and a Candle

Create a comfortable area.  You can sit on the floor, a chair or a cushion.  Your candle should be about 2 feet in front of you and at about eye level.

Light the candle

Turn off lights and all distractions (TV, Radio, Phone, Computer…)

Come to a comfortable seated position

Settle in

Set an intention or affirmation for your meditation
Try “World peace feels my soul. Love and protection surrounds the earth.”

Gaze at the candle flame

Focus on the flame

If your mind starts to wander, make a mental note of the thought or sound or feeling you are experiencing,

Then, bring your attention back to the candle flame

When you are finished, take a moment, focus on your breath and notice how you are feeling.  You may want to journal your thoughts, ideas and feelings that came up during your meditation.

Candle meditation should not be done daily.

 

Deepen your Candle Meditation:

Imagine you are breathing in the light of the candle.

Feel the light of the candle flowing into your body and mind as you gently continue to breathe in and out.

Focus on the flame entering your body with your breath, creating health and wellbeing through your entire body.

As you exhale, imagine anything negative leaving your body with your out breath.

As you mind wanders, just remind yourself to focus on the flame.
