Inspired by the daffodils near my home and spring.
May you Blossom like a Flower Meditation
Sitting comfortably or lying down.
Close your eyes.
Think of your favorite flower.
Imagine you have a seed of this flower in your hand.
The seed has everything it needs to grow.
Plant the little seed in the fertile ground.
The morning rain waters the soil and nourishes the seed.
The roots anchor the plant firmly in the ground.
The roots grow deeper in search of nutrients.
The glaring rays of sunshine heat the soil.
With patience and much anticipation, a little shoot comes out of the soil reaching for the warm sun.
The little shoot slowly grows into a stem.
Millimeter by millimeter the stem grows and gets a darker shade of green.
The strong steam grows thicker and taller in the direction of the sun.
A little leaf appears at the bottom of the stem.
The green leaf grows a little more everyday.
A small delicate bud emerges at the very end of the stem.
The green bud grows a little everyday.
With patience and much anticipation, the bud slowly opens.
The sepales spread apart and show the delicate petals.
Finally, the flower blooms in all its glory.
Recognize the emotions and feelings that arise as you observe the blooming flower.
Bring your attention to:
The symmetry of the petals;
The colour or colours of the petals.
The shape of the petals.
The number of petals.
Take the time to smell the flower.
Recognize the emotions and feelings that arise as you smell the blooming flower.
You are a flower.
You are this beautiful flower.
You are beautiful like a flower.
You are delicate like a flower.
Just like a flower With love and care you grow stronger.
May you blossom like a flower.
Recognize the emotions and feelings that arise as you acknowledge that you blossom like a flower.
You are welcomed to stay here for a little longer if you want.
Recognize the emotions and feelings that arise as you observe the beauty of the flower.
When you are ready at your own paste, we will leave the beautiful flower in the garden.
Remember that you can always come back to this flower and your inner garden when needed.
Bring your attention to your breath.
At the next inhalation, open your eyes.
At the exhalation, close your eyes.
Doing this for a few breaths.
Bring movement to your body. Moving finger tips, toes, circling wrists and ankles.
Gently going back to our daily life as a flower in bloom.
The blooming flower in me bows to the blooming flower in you.
