This simple technique will only take a minute or two, and will help centre you deeply inside of yourself, with the intention to discover what’s really within you.
Gaze into the photograph.
Let your eyes wander between what is visible above the surface and then down to the mysterious beauty below the surface.
Breathe in a deep full breath of air through your nose, filling your lungs and expanding your abdomen.
Exhale all of the air through your mouth, as if you’re blowing out smoke from the depths of your body.
Let it go. Let everything go and gaze even deeper into the picture. Let your eyes go blurry and just breathe.
Continue oxygenating your body while your eyes move between what is above the surface to what is down below the water.
Ponder, when you look at the rock visible above the water, do you have any inclination of what may lie beneath?
What beauty is within you, that you are not seeing?
What do you think other’s experience when they encounter you? What do they see?
As you reflect upon these questions begin to imagine a rich world within you.
Let your inner world be reflected back to you through pictures, colours and shapes in your mind, just like those in the picture.
Imagine that world filling you up.
How does it appear?
What does your inner world contain?
Spend the next few moments in wonder of what may be within you, that you’ve been overlooking and not seeing.
What appears when you don’t limit yourself or put yourself down.
It’s not often we allow ourselves to be mesmerised by wonder – especially about ourselves.
This minute meditation gets more powerful the more often you do it.
With love and wonder,
