Meditation For The Blue Full Moon On August 31

In the past few weeks, I’ve heard or seen mention from several sources about the rising powerful energies we’ll be experiencing in the 9 days beginning tomorrow, August 30.

Lhamo Dorje, one of my Guides who presents a particularly Buddhist aspect, has asked me to share with you a meditation practice that has been used for thousands of years, in case you would like to take advantage of it, to bring about beautiful changes in the world.

She calls this practice “The Moving Karma Meditation”, and it’s a variation of a well-known practice sometimes called “Taking And Giving”.

(In this context, “karma” refers simply to the laws of cause and effect, which we observe frequently. What we may forget sometimes is that these results of our actions – mental and physical – extend beyond a single lifetime and our currently limited perceptions…)

With this meditation, we use our incredibly powerful minds to shift or alter potentialities that we – or others – have created for ourselves – or others. It’s a simple form of visualization, which uses the intention of love, coming from the heart, to fuel positive change in this world.

We can use this meditation any time, and we can move it while we’re active, or sitting quietly. We can even set it as our intention when we go to sleep, with great impact.

The visualization and steps are essentially simple, although I’m sharing them below in some detail:

1. Focus for a moment on the region of your heart, and remind yourself that your heart is the indestructible source of all your experiences. What resides in your heart determines how your world appears. You already know this, and have known it…for countless ages.

2. Reflect for a moment that this is true for everyone. And because – for the moment – we live in a world in which we rely on our physical bodies more than our spiritual bodies, we all often make choices that affect ourselves and others in ways we might not have intended.

3. Now visualize, or intellectually imagine, just briefly, that every tiny – or huge – event that has ever caused any suffering to anyone appears as a tiny speck of black sand. All of this sand has been gathered into a pile… You may imagine it as large or small as you like.

4. As flecks of sand, these experiences lose distinction…they are all similar, and there is no point in being concerned about specifics any more. They simply represent pain.

5. Now please imagine that, from your heart emerges a tremendous swell of brilliant, clear blue crystalline, pure sea water, and this water represents – IS – an ocean of pure, cleansing, transformative LOVE.

6. This wave of loving water totally engulfs the pile of black sand, in a swirling whirlpool, sweeping the sand up into it’s currents, spinning it powerfully. Follow your heart…this water may swirl in either clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. You will come to understand the significance of the direction for yourself.

7. Now imagine that the water, still perfectly pristine, calms and becomes smooth as glass.

8. See that the sand, now as brilliant and transparent as clear quartz, lies quietly and smoothly on the bottom of the ocean of your heart. It, and all the actions it represents, have become completely purified.

9. Now imagine that the crystals of sand begin to radiate light magnificently, and this light very powerfully extends throughout the entire universe, touching every living being. Please imagine this light as being whatever color feels right to you at the moment… White and rainbow-colored are particularly powerful, but you may sense that another color is needed from time to time.

10. Please understand that this light IS very real, and very powerful, and that it cleanses, purifies, and blesses every being in existence. You have completely transformed all negativity in the world into brilliant, crystalline, pure love.

11. Just take another moment to feel that the whole world is now perfect. (This might be easier to do with your eyes closed, at first, but with time you will begin to see the difference you are making…)

As you go about your daily activities, if you find yourself in a challenging situation, try briefly thinking of your challenge as a pile of black sand, and imagine your heart sending a tsunami of love like water, to cleanse it and sweep it away. Then when you have more time, you can engage in a more detailed meditation if you like.

If you enjoy working with energy physically, if you feel disturbed you can brush the “sand” off your shoulders, and think of it as transforming and completely dissolving before it hits the ground.

These brief versions of the meditation are very useful when you feel very stressed. If you can remember to add the visualization of radiating the brilliant, loving light to others, and the world transforming as a result, the effect is many times more powerful.

Lhamo Dorje says the month of September, especially this year, is a very pivotal time for the shifting of energies. Anything we can do to re-train ourselves towards increasingly positive points of view will have a very deep effect.

Please move into these quieter times with an eye towards how we are all connected, and how we can – and do – help and teach and show examples to one another.

Thank you for trying and sharing this meditation in whatever way you feel guided, and may you enjoy many blessings through the coming of the Blue Moon!
