Candle Meditation

I always wanted to write a candle meditation, so here it is- we did this last night-

Begin to breathe, letting all the racing, all the running, everything that happened in your day, drop away.

Breath becoming slower, quieter.
Become aware of one small candle flame burning.  All is quiet, all is dark, just the flame burning softly- you can hear it-

The flame is golden, happy, contented to be a light in the darkness.

The darkness is not hostile, it just is.  The flame is not afraid.  It is safe, and sure of its burning, casting a perfect circle of light around itself.

It shimmers and dances, lifted a little by the breeze-

As you become aware that you are the flame, you also become aware that there are other flames, spreading out in all directions- a matrix of flames, above, below, around, through all.

Now there is another light in the distance- it seems to be coming closer, or you are coming closer to it.

The light is huge, the circle it casts is immense--and now it envelopes you- over you , under you, surrounding you-

You are inside the light, the Light of Ages, the Light of All That Is.

And in the light you feel loved, very loved.  You are absorbed into the golden light.  And you are safe, very safe-  loved and safe in this encompassing love and light.

Be there--expand into the Light-  Let Go-open your heart to the light.


And now you feel yourself coming back a bit.  You feel you are radiating light from a point inside the larger light. Your rays of light expand in all directions-


And now the immense light releases you-

And you are completely healed.

Your life is healed.

Your body is healed.

Your heart is healed- one with All- God and Goddess.

Coming back further now, into the candle flame burning in this room.

All is calm, all is bright, on this night and all through the ages you  have lived.

You are Spirit, filled with Light.

I honor your Spirit on this night-  Namaste.


Today, I really know what the phrase "suffering the loss of" means.  We had to put our beloved pet down to end his suffering.  Now we are suffering.

We have lost people, but losing a pet is one of the hardest things, somehow.  I see him, or rather don't see him, in every corner of the house and yard.  He's not there to greet us in the morning or when we come home.

I wish I could have a re-do, but I am negotiating with myself to accept he is gone and that we did the right thing.  It is our responsibility as pet owners to help them at the end, I think.  But it is not easy and I don't wish it on anyone.

We were so lucky to experience this love with our pet together as a family for so many years.

Maybe somehow this will make me a better person.

I will try, and I bless him for this chance to turn sorrow into Beauty-

May he be romping with some really fun and  loving Pet Angels-

Blessings to all- Lia

After Bliss

One evening after meditation class, I was in a bit of an altered state.  We had gone deep for about an hour.  I sat with it awhile, writing about it.

Then I got up to make dinner.  Later, I thought, "What did you do that for?"

My new mantra, "Dinner can wait when you're in an altered state."

Humans are weird.  When gifted with a feeling like that, don't get up and move on- try and stay with it, feel it, BE it, for awhile, anyway.

This is also what I did after merging with the Unified Field- after about 5 minutes or less I got up and went into the house.-WHAT!?

I left it- such a profound sense of being  part of everything- Oh, my Goddess, may I be given another chance to experience this again- thank you.

 If you are meditating regularly, working on your issues to move toward healing, reading decent books, and taking care of your body, experiences like this can happen.

If you have ever felt " in the zone" doing something you love, perhaps you felt that your highest self was present and in alignment with something larger or other than your everyday self...

You may even feel that something is guiding your life, or that you can open to that guidance more.

It is in our nature, I guess, to move on, but I  plan to practice staying a little longer next time.

I am so grateful for this time and the processes I have been shown to give to other people.  Thank you, thank you, thank you-

Namaste- Lia

The Unified Field

I hesitated to share this, because it was so personal- but of course, others have had similiar experiences, or maybe everyone has, if they think about it, especially in childhood. Also, it is not easy to convey in words.

We were outside.

It was a quiet day, a Sunday, I think.

You know how some days are like that.   There is a pause in the busyness of the world.  A quiet that is deeper.

My body was quiet, too.  Maybe more quiet than it has ever been, sitting there.

We were sitting on the deck, not speaking.

The wind was coming up through the trees- purple, delicate silver-green, all lit with the sun.  The earth was vibrant with Spring.

The moving trees began speaking to me, in waves, like the ocean.

Time dissipated, changed into timelessness.

My body- mind gracefully fell away, opened up.

My molecules danced apart, expanding, entering all around me.

I became part of the unified field.

Bliss, but beyond bliss.

Thank You.
