A Meditation for World Peace and Healing

I am writing this in the wake of the attacks on the World Trade Center in Manhattan and on the Pentagon. For 22 years Manhattan was my home, and I had a store in Greenwich Village, within sight of the World Trade Center. I pray for the people who live in New York and especially for the families of those who were killed.

In a global and spiritual sense, we are all touched by this tragedy. The planet has never been more in need of our prayer, meditation, and Reiki, and the global spiritual community has responded.

In this spirit, I am offering a contribution from Beyond the Rainbow, a meditation for global harmony and peace which was first published in this newsletter prior to the beginning of the new millenium.

I invite you to use and share this meditation. You may also wish to program a crystal for world peace and healing.

This meditation may be done either seated or lying down.

Close your eyes and relax. Inhale and exhale. As you inhale imagine that you have roots which extend deep into the earth. As you exhale imagine that strands of light extend from the top of your head upward to the heavens.

Inhale, feeling the deep earth energies flowing upward through you. Exhale, feeling the energy of the universe flowing downward. As you continue to inhale and exhale feel these energies blend and become one.

Now, imagine the room you're in. Visualize its dimensions, with special attention to the altar. Fill this room with loving energy.

Now expand outward and visualize your entire living space. Feel appreciation for the comfort and protection it gives you. Send love and healing into every area.

Expand further and imagine your immediate physical surroundings (apartment building, neighborhood, etc.) Fill this space with love and healing.

Expand outward again and send healing and love to your city or town.

Send healing to all those who are ill or troubled or frightened.

Expand further and send healing to your state or province.

Now expand to include your entire country. Send healing to all those who have AIDS and cancer. Send healing and love to the divisions which separate people.

Expand outward to include all the countries in the world. Send healing and love wherever there is war and suffering. Send healing and love where there is hunger and sickness.

See this planet embraced in an aura of healing, a glowing aura with all the colors of the rainbow, healing its wounds, making it healthy and whole.

Continue to expand outward to the planets, to the stars. Feel yourself become lighter and lighter, feel the energy which flows through you. Feel your personal boundaries expand until you are one with the universal energy, creator and creation, all one, all an energy beyond time and space. There is only Now, the moment of creation, when all ideas, actions, and results wait to be born.

Experience the vastness, the eternity of this moment. Open yourself to its gift.

And now, feeling very light and expansive, slowly return to Earth, leaving the stars, the planets, behind. Return to the earth, wrapped in a glowing, healing aura. Return slowly to your country, your locality, your room.

As you return to your room, know that the world, the universe, is right here. The Eternal Now, the moment of creation, is in this room.

Slowly inhale and exhale. Feel yourself at one with all that is.

When you are ready, open your eyes.

Programming Your Crystals

Below is one method of programming.

  1. Hold your crystal in one or both hands.
  2. Start breathing with slow, deep breaths, inhaling through your nose and exhaling forcefully through your mouth.
  3. Focus on what you want to program into the crystal.
  4. As you inhale see a visual image of what you want; imagine how it feels to have it; and repeat an affirmation to yourself.
  5. With each exhale send your desire into the crystal.
  6. When you feel that the programming is complete put the crystal in a place where it won't be disturbed, or carry it with you. (This, of course, depends on how many crystals you're programming.)

You may feel that the programming is complete when you feel the crystal tingle. It may be a sense that what you're programming for will happen. It may be some awareness, known only to you, that your work with this crystal is complete.
