Summer is the season of warmth and abundance in the Bay Area. This is reflected in all the flowers and colors that have sprung up everywhere after all of the Spring rain. Find your color and affirmations to support you during your rebirth with this color quest meditation.
Close your eyes. Follow your breath down to the center of your body. Notice a pinpoint of light at the core of your body. As you breathe in, the light becomes brighter. As you breathe out, the light expands. Continue breathing until the light has spread to the edges of you entire body and it's at full density. Feel your physical body fall away.
Your light body is floating through space. There are stars all around. One star is brighter than the others, and you feel drawn toward it. Your hands of light reach out. Your intuition is taking you exactly where you need to go.
You almost instantly arrive on this new world. Your feet touch down on soft grass and you're surrounded by wildflowers. You smell their wonderful scent and hear the sound of flowing water. You're in a serene oasis. Here is the pool that is the essence of your color. There's a strong energy coming from it, and you intuitively know it's just what you need right now.
You gently lower yourself into the color pool. As you relax in the soothing water, your light-body is saturated with your color. Let it wash over you, flow through you. You are calm, whole, and renewed. You stay as long as you need to fully embody your color and its qualities.
Dusty Rose: I have a clear and direct connection to my wants and needs. I take pleasure in giving myself care, and fulfill my desires easily and joyfully. I am fulfillment. An abundance of beauty is coming to me.
Marigold: I have the energy and motivation to complete my goals. I am well rewarded for my work. I am grounded in prosperity. I am prosperity. An abundance of wealth is coming to me.
Olive: I am deeply connected to friends, family, and nature. I am one with all life. I fully accept and allow my emotions to flow through me. I am loved and I am love. An abundance of passion is coming to me.
Indigo: I have an open channel to inner wisdom, intuition and creativity. I am my authentic self. Peace resonates from me and my art. I am peace. An abundance of clarity is coming to me.
Lavender: I am tapped in to the divine. I am fully in the present moment. My ego falls away and I find contentment by being of service to others. I am contentment. An abundance of understanding is coming to me.
Black: I am in touch with my shadow self. I have an inner knowing and inner strength that sustains me. I am strength. I am confidence. I know how to call upon my plentiful resources. An abundance of opportunity is coming to me.
You re-enter your physical body knowing that you take the color and qualities with you, and that you can return to this oasis whenever you need. Find piece of clothing or jewelry in your color to wear. Eat more foods in your color. Notice your color in your neighborhood and absorb its energy.
You are abundance.
