A COLLECTION OF ESOTERIC & KABALISTIC MEDITATIONS


 

Beauty exercise

This is exercise is to help you consciously to establish self-love.

Stand in front of a mirror (or sit with a hand held mirror that is large enough to see your whole face) and look at yourself. As you gaze at yourself look at every aspect and see its beauty. Along with this, create a rhythmic song about yourself, it only has to be a few lines that reflect your inner and outer beauty. The subconscious likes and responds well to rhythm/music. Sing this song in your mind or out loud if you wish and sing it periodically throughout your day. When you sing this song bring to your minds eye your reflection, see yourself in full detail, just as if you were looking at yourself in the mirror.  Once you’ve established your personal song of beauty, it becomes a useful tool in times when you are not feeling so positive about yourself.

Do this exercise for 10 minutes a day for 3 weeks, then once a week for 3 months.

Beauty Exercise Part 2

Please put your attention on the breath for just a few moments...and read carefully these instructions before proceeding to do this mystical exercise.  

Having done and experienced with the mirror exercise part 1, I suggest you try and add this second part of the same exercise.
So after having read this exercise sit once more in front of your mirror and after gazing at yourself for a few moments, close your eyes and remember the instructions that you have read.

Use your own creativity and imagination to feel and bring about something that for you is most beautiful….
Decide how best to feel beauty within…and then feel and “fill” beauty within your own heart...

Fill your heart with the most beautiful aspects of pure Beingness that you can think and imagine of… making it a wonderful place to rest in… and then look at the beauty in your heart, enjoy it and love it...

Now let the person nearest to your heart enter your own heart, and allow him/her enjoy your own inner beauty…
Now let your parents enter into this beautiful, shining, translucent heart, where they can enjoy, feel loved, and be at rest…pause
Let your dearest people come into your heart. See how they enjoy and love it, how they appreciate the beauty of it, and how they want to stay there and rest within that beauty…

Now think of your good friends and let them all enter into your heart; see how they smile and appreciate the beauty of your heart. They are happy that they have been allowed to be with you, to enjoy your love, and to find a home in your heart…

Think of the people whom you meet in your everyday life. Take each one by the hand and lead them to your heart. Let them enter and see their enjoyment and their love of this wondrous place, filled with the utmost beauty…

Think of other people you know whom you can lead to your heart. Let them enter and enjoy and be overwhelmed with the beauty they find and the love they experience…

Allow other known and unknown soul personalities who are in pain or in fear to enter into the beauty and serenity of your heart…let them settle and stay for a few moments in this beautiful place within your heart…
See how your heart is full of people and there are still lots of room for more. There is no limit. The beauty of the heart is limitless.

Hence you can you can continue your journey allowing different kinds of known and unknown people enter into your heart; such as people toward whom you are quite indifferent. You neither like nor dislike them. Take them by the hand, let them enter into your heart; see the joy on their faces when they recognize the beauty and the love that they find there…

You might want to think of some difficult person or persons and recognize the mental pains and feelings of that person, take him or her by the hand and lead them to your heart. The beauty and the wonder create real happiness for that person, and you no longer find him or her difficult…

Or you might choose to allow people whose lives are far more difficult than yours: who may be in a hospital, prison, refugee camp, war zone; or who may be crippled, blind, and hungry, without shelter, without friends. Think of the many people that this applies to and take as many of them as you can by the hand and lead them to the beautiful heart that is within you, where they can find joy, and love, and a home. As you lead them to your heart, you can embrace them, so that they know they are really welcome…

Think of the many people who live on this globe of ours, and see whether you can accommodate them all, so that they can all enjoy the wondrous beauty that you have created in your heart, making them happy, making them feel the warmth of love…

Now put your attention back on yourself and open your eyes…How do you see yourself? Are there any noticeable changes in the way you see yourself? Feel your heart, and see how it has created such beauty that when you rest in it, there is joy, and love and peace within you. Think of the joy and the love and the peace within your heart and then allow intuition to reveal to you a symbol representing your heart…
 
You might be or might not be aware that during this special meditation and at this precise moment you have become the projection of your Perfect Model… and while gazing at your own face in the mirror know that you are reflecting your own Master Within…

May people everywhere create great beauty in their hearts…

 * It is recommended not to prolong the duration of this exercise more then 20 minutes as one should allow for the mystical qualities of the Heart to unfold spontaneously and intuitively... You can do this exercise once a day… whenever convenient….

(It is recommended that you try the Perfect Mold and Perfect Model exercises before or after these two exercises)
