I was recently made aware of a meditation exercise that I have found very important for developing our spiritual roots. After thoughtfully making sure we are fully in our bodies by bring awareness systematically from our feet to the tops of our heads, we send a root deep into Earth Mother anchoring ourselves there. Feeling fully anchored, we then bring that energy from our Earth Mother to our solar plexus and then send a ray through our upper chakras, through the four chakras above our heads and into the source of light – Unee. Now bring the energy of Unee into the solar plexus to merge with Earth Mother energy.
Here fully aligned above and below we can begin truly exploring our spiritual roots. We can send our energy again deep into the Earth Mother and reach out the roots of our ancestors, they are definitely there. We can visualize the roots of the Sacred Oak tree whose roots descend into the Earth as high as it’s branches reach toward the sky as our inspiration.
Feel the gentle tendrils of your ancestors in Earth Mother and make a connection there. Awaken them from their slumber where they have been napping, waiting patiently for you to acknowledge their presence. Greet them and start a new relationship, they have much to share.
I sent my root deep into the Hill of Tara and the Hill of Ward in Ireland where my ancestors dwelled. Back home in meditation I reached for them deep in the Earth and across the Continents and the ocean I could feel them reaching for me. New insights revealed, deeper peace than I have ever known.
