As you sit here in your human form, know that this body is just one aspect of yourself. There is another part of you that is unseen by the human eye. It is in reality your truest essence. This is your higher self, that beautiful and perfect part of you which has experienced all your lifetimes and is intimately familiar with the home for which you yearn. You have begun as a spark of creation, and have accepted the human path to maturity, that you may grow increasingly comfortable with your ability to be a creator and find your way home. Your life is the classroom for this highest self, which is already perfect in its essence, yet grows in wisdom throughout your lifetime as you bring your body and soul into divine union.

Relax and find a comfortable position. Let music soothe you and envelope your senses as you read this meditation. If possible, get someone to take you through this meditation until you have mastered it. However, it can still be effective to read it to yourself here online if you can filter out distractions. There are some gestures which you may or may not choose to physically enact.

Let's begin a brief journey to meet your higher self, and visit your home.

Direct your attention to your breath. Notice the in-breath and the out. Take several, slow deep cleansing breaths. In through your nose....out through your mouth. Your abdomen should expand as you inhale and contract with each exhale of your breath. Let your shoulders melt downward. Share your breath with the universe.

Move deeper within. Look through your third eye. Allow the inside of your forehead to be a movie screen, and watch the pictures that unfold.

In your mind's eye visualize your house....The house that you physically live in now. Go to your house and stand at the front door. See yourself open the door and walk through it. You are now inside your home. You are safe from outside forces. Slowly make your way to your bedroom. Enter the room. Once inside the room go to your closet. This is the place where all your secrets, dreams and mysteries are kept.

Step inside your closet. Gently move the clothing to one side. At the back of your closet a hidden door is revealed. Only you can access this place. It leads to your safe haven...your cathedral. Open this door to your sanctuary.

As you step through the door you emerge from a woods, and are on a lovely open hillside. All around you are flowers in full bloom, in brilliant shades of yellow, pink and violet. Birds are singing, and the soft wings of butterflies flutter about touching you gently. The scent of freshness fills the air.

Far below you see a grove of trees, a grassy park-like spot where beings are moving about. Beyond the grove is a crystal blue river, glistening in the sunshine. Across the river are lovely hills, turning into sweeping mountains in the distance. You start down the hill. The sun is warm on your back and the cool, fresh breeze touches your face.

The figures are larger now. Some present a solid form; others appear as light. Some sit; others stand. They are in small groups. There is an air of peace, and the quiet, comforting hum of voices. You do not know these beings, yet you feel you’ve known them forever. You feel no fear or hesitation as you approach. You are certain of your welcome. One being catches your gaze. It is the figure of your dreams, deeply beautiful in the manner that most brings love and beauty to your heart.

Focusing your attention on this being, you forget the others. For this moment there are only you two in all the universe.

This being, male or female, solid or light, walks toward you with arms outstretched in welcome. Do not force its appearance. Let it be however it is. You each walk very slowly. There is all the time you need for this meeting. As you grow near, you gaze deeply into each other’s eyes. You trust this being completely, and feel only intense joy in its presence.

Stop. Breath deeply. Look into each other’s eyes. Time stands still.

Feel a deeper, more pure love than you have ever known touch your heart. It is a love that is familiar, remembered and yearned for, through all your human lifetimes. Slowly you approach each other and touch outstretched hands together. There is total and complete love and trust in that touch. Know that this being is yourself, your highest self. Know that it is more you than the human body you inhabit. It is your essence...your soul. Touch hands, gaze into the depths of each other’s eyes, and know the joy of this reunion. Feel the deep peace that comes with your knowing of yourself.

You are whole, you are perfect, you are unlimited.

Separating hands, your highest self begins a song and dance.

Your highest self places one hand over your heart. You do the same. With your free hand you cover that dear hand which touches you. “May Light illuminate your heart, now and forever more.”

You repeat this song, as often as you like, gazing deeply into each other’s eyes.

May Light shine upon you. May peace abide with you.

May Light illuminate your heart, now and forever more.

You are on the spiritual plane now. Go with your higher self now, as one being. Slowly merge. You become the one being that you truly are. You will not need your body for awhile. Leave it sitting safely there, resting in the sunshine. Just gently rest your body on the grass, where it will safely await your return. Your body is inanimate as you, the living fire, are in your sanctuary. You have begun to notice the other beings. They are all spirits like yourself.

Two circles are forming, one inside the other. Join the one of your choice. Face the being beside you in the other circle. You repeat the dance, gazing deeply into each being’s eyes as you sing and dance together. Move from one to the next, and on to the next. Go slowly, moving with the group. Hear the beauty of the music. Let it fill you and surround you.

Feel the edges of your being dissolve. There is no “self” or “other” here. There is only oneness. You are whole, as are all the beings that you meet. You have no need for attention, no pain or emptiness. There is only love and oneness.

You move beyond yourself. You are aware of yourself dancing and singing, and yet there is no self. You are as fully each partner as yourself. You are all beings. You are one. And, as the song suggests, the Light fills your hearts, and radiates through the valley. Continue to dance as long as you like.

When you have had enough, step back and watch.

It is the same whether you dance or watch. You share the perceptions of the dancers and the watchers. The total harmony of your being fills your hearts.

There is total joy and peace. There is no separation from any living thing. There is only oneness, with yourself, with all beings, and with God. Dance, watch, and feel the Joy of your oneness.

The shadows grow longer. The dance is ending. You draw apart, but without regret. The love fills your heart. The memory of this oneness will stay with you. Return to that human form you left resting on the grass. It is time to join with your beautiful human body, again.

You are back in human form, but for awhile you have been united with your highest self. You know that this is who you truly are. You are perfect. You are limitless. You are complete.

You must leave this grove now, but the parting is not sad. You may come back at any time. You are always welcome here. This is your home.

Your highest self follows you to the path and presses into your hand a gift. This treasured token is a reminder of the beauty, joy and love of your higher self.

You feel the sun on your face as you walk up the hill. Behind you, the beautiful music from the valley accompanies you on your way. Walk slowly. There is no hurry. Feel the deep peace and love that goes with you. Bring your gift back with you into the physical world to remind you that your higher Self is always with you.

Whenever you are ready, you may open your eyes. What was your gift?
