Hummingbird Meditation

I write this as if I was actually doing the meditation with a group. Take some deep and slow breaths and gently close your eyes, become aware of your breathing, listen to your heart beating, spend a few minutes connecting with your inner self see a light inside you feel its warmth feel how safe it makes you feel.

Now, I would like you to see yourself entering into a forest along a path, at first you see that there are no animals, birds or other creatures of the forest. Stop for a moment, look around, feel the gentle breeze on your face and hair, relax, enjoy this moment in time, feel the tranquillity that is within the forest.

Begin your journey again along the path moving deeper into the forest looking around you become aware of shafts of light breaking through the canopy and within these beams of light dance a multitude of butterflies. Close by there is a deer, a badger and a stunning vixen, they all take a moment to stop and gaze upon you, inquisitive song birds fly closer to you, the animals are more willing to approach you as you relax more and opening your heart to your surroundings.

You break into a clearing were you can see everyone present enter into the clearing at the same time as you, in the middle between you all lays a large and very still pond. You approach it walking slowing up to the waters edge you’re feet are bare, your stand on the waters edge with your toes in the water. I want you to reach out now and hold the hand of your brother or sister standing next to you.

As you look out over the pond a Hummingbird appears, hovering in the middle and at eye level it is facing you and as you look at it you become aware of its many colours. First there is Sapphire - Blue this represents Healing and Communication, then there is Emerald - Green representing Emotions, next Amber - Orange this is Surrender, followed by Ruby - Red representing Power or Self Empowerment, next you see Rose Quartz - Pink this is Unconditional Love and then you become aware of Jet - Black which represents the Shadow Self and finely your eyes set upon Diamond - White which represents the Christ Light.

As you look at these many faceted colours glistening on the Hummingbird it approaches you until is but a few feet from your face and the colours glisten even more now, look at them see yourself in all these colours, remembering that there is no right or wrong there just is, each colour reflects back to you who you truly are, spend some time with the colours of the Hummingbird see yourself in these colours see your light within, share your feelings and thoughts with the Hummingbird, hear what it has to say to you as it reflects the all things back to you.

As the Hummingbird returns to the centre of the pond it hovers for a brief moment still looking at you, it dives into the water, concentric rings are sent out carrying aspects of who you are from the colours and as they reach the bank the water laps over your feet washing away the aspects you wish to change and bringing the things you desire to be letting you see who you truly are and as you surrender to this experience you begin to heal and learn to communicate with your inner and outer self, you feel safe being with your most deepest and inner emotions, this allows you to empower yourself giving you the feeling of unconditional love, now you see that the shadow self and the gift it brings you, you can see the beauty in ugly, finely you discover that all the colours are contained within the white and you experience the essence of your truth of who you are.

Stay with this experience for a while if you wish you can send back to the centre of the pond on the returning concentric the aspects of yourself that you no longer wish to hold onto you become cleanse by the water and the very essence that is you.

Now slowly let go of each others hands and before you return along your path take a moment to say just a few words to the Hummingbird hovering in the middle of the pond, now return down the path from which you came take time to look around you, can you see anything different about the forest, about the animals the birds and even about you? As you leave the forest, again if you wish to, thank all that is for this experience and when you are ready I would like you to open your eyes.

After this as a group we process any aspects of the meditation that people wish to share.
