Begin the meditation by relaxing your body. Begin at your feet and end at your head. Mentally tell each part of your body to relax, don’t worry if your body is relaxed, just assume it is and go on. Spend extra time on your shoulders, neck, and throat, as these will be the most tense. As you get to the point of relaxing your scalp, you should be relaxed enough to astral travel. Any time you want to leave the meditation, just think of your physical body and you will return. You are NEVER LOCKED into a meditation.
First you visualize or “sense” yourself surrounded by a bright white light (aids in protection and guidance). Slowly breathe in the light. Then visualize yourself standing on a bridge over a pond or river. Take all the negative events and people who are causing you trouble and throw them into the water. This ensures that you don’t clutter yourself with negative emotions.
Meeting Your Special Dragon (if you really want to)
You find yourself on a mountaintop. Beyond you, in the distance, you see a volcano with smoke and steam floating from its crater. You turn to look behind and below you. Vast forests sparkle with bright blue lakes and twisting rivers. On the horizon you can see the twinkling edges of an ocean.
The tan and ocher hues of distant sand dunes are a streak of color between the aquamarine ocean waters and the deep green of evergreen trees. You look up at the sky and see that storm clouds are rolling in over the mountains,although long shafts of brilliant sunlight break through the clouds to light up the hills and forests.
Suddenly, you are aware of various kinds of dragons in the scenery around you. The dark Chaos dragons roll and turn in the storm clouds, while the dragons of Light fly up and down the paths of sunlight. Earth dragons crawl beneath the thick canopy of tree branches. Fire dragons of all sizes play in the steam and heat of the volcano. Every lake and river is home to Water dragons, as is the distant ocean. Dragons of the desert and arid places haunt the hot dunes. You can feel the separate energy and power of each dragon as they call to you.
Hold out your hands and mentally call to the dragon to which you are attracted. Instantly, you are beside that dragon. You walk unharmed and unafraid in the dragon’s domain. The dragon speaks to you, telling you things you need to know about improving your life on all levels.
When you’re finished, you can return to your body, or to the mountaintop to visit with another dragon. At any time that you feel uncomfortable with a particular dragon, you can end the visit. When you wish to end the meditation, just think of your physical body.
