Close your eyes and breathe in deeply. Now breathe out. Let us take a moment to consciously be aware of our breathing. Of how breathing nurtures us and sustains us. Take a deep breath in and out. Try to feel your blood flowing in your body and how it welcomes every breath you take. If you do not feel this, that is fine, knowing it is enough.

Be conscious of how you feel at this very moment. Are you comfortable or uncomfortable? What is making you feel comfortable or uncomfortable? Do you want to change something about the way you are feeling? If yes, and it is something that you can do, do it now. If you like the way you are feeling, stay with this feeling and enjoy your comfort. If you cannot change an uncomfortable feeling, feel this feeling now, and know that discomfort as well as comfort is part of being human. Feel your comfort or discomfort now. Take the feeling, whether it is comfort or discomfort, and in your mind, hug it. This feeling, whether it makes you feel good or makes you feel bad, is a real feeling, it is a part of you being human. Now take your hug and in your mind, hug yourself. You deserve a big hug for your willingness to be part of the work that we are going to do tonight. Now, in your mind, hug your fellow lightworkers. This hug is meant to feel good. It is a strengthening hug, a hug that is meant to feel gratifying and nurturing.

For tonight’s journey, an animal will transport us. Specifically, you will be selecting a mammal. You may select any mammal you wish. Some of you may select a camel, others a mule, others a horse, others an elephant, some of you may wish to be transported in a kangaroo’s pouch. It does not matter which mammal you select. Any animal that you select will be strong enough, large enough, and quick enough for the journey. The animal that you select will be excited, happy, and friendly. It wants to be part of this journey and looks forward to transporting you. Select your animal now.

Imagine that you are in an open field with your animal. Your animal is by your side. Get to know your animal. Some of you may pet, feed, and/or talk gently to your animal. In return, your animal relates back to you by smiling, licking you, or by standing still. Picture this now. Now look above you and see that your column of light shines on both you and your animal. Feel the strength that the light provides you. Feel this now.

We are now ready to begin our journey. Imagine that your animal is transporting you across many fields. Your animal knows where to take you and the ride is extremely gentle and smooth. You and your animal stop as often as necessary to eat, drink, go to the bathroom, and sleep. Through the journey your animal always stays by your side. Day turns into night and night turns into day. You are always comfortable and the temperature feels just right.

Your animal stops in front of an open shed. You get off your animal and know that your animal will stay in the shed while you walk away. As you walk, you notice a dirt trail and you decide to follow it. The dirt trail takes you to an area where you see many people lying on the ground. They are all severely malnourished, are too weak to move, and are moaning from hunger and starvation. As you walk, you see babies clinging to their mothers, you see children lying next to their fathers, and you see elderly individuals lying next to them. You notice that amidst the people, there are also dead bodies covered with flies. Walk amongst the people, hear their moans, see their malnourished bodies, see the look of despair and hopelessness in their eyes, smell the smell of decomposing bodies. Do this now. Notice how all of this makes you feel. Some of you may feel disgusted, some of you may feel sad, and others of you may feel angry. Some of you may feel numbed. Others of you may feel happy that you are not malnourished. All of these feelings are okay. Hug these feelings and know that as you are hugging the feelings, you are holding on to important emotions that we should not push aside. These are the feelings that can lead to action and healing. Know that later on in the journey, you will be sharing these feelings with others.

You find your dirt trail and you continue to walk on it. The trail loops back to your animal and your animal welcomes you with a very warm greeting. Imagine this greeting now. Your animal then points in a direction different from the one you just came from and you see another dirt trail. Before you begin your next journey you look above you at your column of light and realize that the light is continuing to shine upon you and your animal. Feel the strength that the light offers and let it bathe your entire body -- both inside and out. Do this now. Feel how good you feel, how comforted, how supported and how nurtured you feel. Take a deep breath in and out. Do this again. You are now ready to walk again on the other dirt trail.

As you walk on the dirt trail, you come across a large banquet hall. The hall is currently empty and you walk inside. The banquet hall is lavishly decorated for a party. See the decorations now. You walk around and notice rows of tables full of buffets of food. You notice overflowing plates of carved turkey, ham, and roasted briskets; overflowing plates of celery, cucumber, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, carrots, and spinach; overflowing plates of potatoes, yams, rice, and spaghetti; overflowing plates of bread, rolls, crackers, and bagels; overflowing plates of cakes, cookies, ice cream, puddings, and chocolates; various bowls of soups, carafes of wines, bottles of juice, water, and milk shakes. You realize that the more you look the more food you see-in another corner you see an omelet station, in another corner, you see a pizza station, in another corner, a seafood station. It seems that no matter where you look there is more food. See and smell this food now. If you can, think of some of the tastes associated with the food.

As you are doing this, you begin to hear voices. You walk out of the banquet hall and peer through an open window into the hall. You notice people dressed in ballroom attire entering. They are laughing, smiling, and conversing. See their clothes, hear the lightness in the tones of their voices, smell their perfumes and colognes. Do this now. Watch as they go to the plates of food and serve themselves heaps of food. See how carefree they are. Continue to watch as they eat and become full. Watch how much food is thrown into the garbage. Notice how all of this makes you feel. Some of you may feel happy and lighthearted. Others of you may feel disgusted, some of you may feel sad, and others of you may feel angry. Some of you may feel numbed. All of these feelings are okay. Hug these feelings and know that as you are hugging the feelings, you are holding on to important emotions that we should not push aside. These are the feelings that can lead to action and healing. Know that later on in the journey, you will be sharing these feelings with others.

You leave the banquet hall, you find your dirt trail, and you continue to walk on it. The trail loops back to your animal and your animal welcomes you with a very warm greeting. Imagine this greeting now. Your animal then points in the direction of the malnourished people. Before you visit them again, you look above you at your column of light and realize that the light is continuing to shine upon you and your animal. Feel the strength that the light offers and let it bathe your entire body-both inside and out. Do this now. Feel how good you feel, how comforted, how supported and how nurtured you feel. Take a deep breath in and out. Do this again.

You are now ready to go back to the malnourished people. As you walk, you see babies clinging to their mothers, you see children lying next to their fathers, and you see elderly individuals lying next to them. Walk amongst the people, hear their moans, see their malnourished bodies, see the look of despair and hopelessness in their eyes, notice the smell of decomposing bodies. As you are walking, you notice a hill in front of you. You go up this hill and you realize that from this hill you can see all the malnourished people. Do this now. As you are doing this, conjure up the image of the banquet hall. See and smell all the food. Think about the tastes that are associated with the different foods. Do this now. Next, remember the lightness in the tones of the voices of the people in the banquet hall. Remember their carefreeness as they served themselves the food. Remember how they could take as much food as they wanted, and then throw out the food that they do not finish. Take these images of the banquet hall and blow them out to the malnourished people. Do this by taking a deep breath in and out. Let us do this 3 times. Take a deep breath in and out. Do it again. One more time- a deep breath in and out.

Now go back to your dirt trail. The trail loops back to your animal and your animal welcomes you with a very warm greeting. Imagine this greeting now. Your animal then points in the direction of the banquet hall. Before you go there again, you look above you at your column of light and realize that the light is continuing to shine upon you and your animal. Feel the strength that the light offers and let it bathe your entire body-both inside and out. Do this now. Feel how good you feel, how comforted, how supported and how nurtured you feel. Take a deep breath in and out. Do this again.

You are now ready to go back to the banquet hall. You take the dirt trail and enter the hall. You notice a stage at the front of the hall and you go to it. From this stage you can see everyone in the hall. You can see the food, the people, and the decorations. You can smell the perfumes, the colognes, and the food. Once on the stage, you remember the malnourished people. You hear their moans, you see their malnourished bodies, you see the look of despair and hopelessness in their eyes, and you smell the smell of decomposing bodies. Do this now. Take these images of the malnourished people and blow them out to the people in the banquet hall. Do this by taking a deep breath in and out. Let us do this 3 times. Take a deep breath in and out. Do it again. One more time- a deep breath in and out.

Now go back to your dirt trail. The trail loops back to your animal and your animal welcomes you with a very warm greeting. Imagine this greeting now. You look above at your column of light and you feel how the light continues to shine upon you and your animal. Feel the strength that the light offers and let it bathe your entire body-both inside and out. Do this now. Feel how good you feel, how comforted, how supported and how nurtured you feel. Take a deep breath in and out. Do this again.

Before we go on our next journey, we notice that near the shed, there is a pond. You and your animal go to it. Your animal may drink from it, may swim in it, stand in it, or just stand next to it. See this now. You sit next to the pond and conjure up the images of both the malnourished people and the people in the banquet hall. If possible, hold both images at the same time. If you cannot do this, that is okay-just listening to the words is enough. While holding the images at the same time, sense to the best of your ability, energy waves being transported between the two peoples. On the hilltop and on the stage, you began to share the energy between the two groups. While sitting near the pond, you can continue to share the energy waves. It is important for both groups to learn from each other. The malnourished can benefit from the banquet hall’s people’s feelings of satisfaction, of fullness, of carefreeness. By receiving these gifts, they can begin to feel stronger and more able to accept aid and help repair their communities.

The people in the banquet hall can benefit from the malnourished people’s feelings of despair, hopelessness, starvation, and wanting. By receiving these gifts, they can begin to feel the need to help others, and to reduce their wastefulness of food and excess. We need to learn from each other, and by sharing the energy waves between the two groups, we are helping this process. So to the best of your ability, see the energy going being the two groups. Some of you may see this in terms of colors, others may see this in terms of lightening bolts, some of you may see this in terms of waves, and some of you may not be able to see it at all. This is all okay. You may be able to imagine the sounds of the energy waves, or sense t hem in some other way. Let us take a moment to sense it, or think about the words now.

Take a deep breath in and out. Do this again. We get up, and our animals beckon us to come close. Our animals begin to transport us to another location. The ride is a smooth and gentle one and we are extremely comfortable. Our animal takes us into an opening of a cave. You get off your animal and sit on a big rock that faces the opening of the cave. Your animal is by your side. An individual approaches you and tells you about this cave. The cave is very long -it takes 6 days and 6 nights to completely go through it. It drops very deeply into the earth and there are parts that are covered with water. We will not be going through this cave, but instead will stay seated on the rock that faces the opening. Our task here will be to help heal the underground of our earth, which is very polluted and poisons the water that we drink, the vegetables and meat that we eat, and the dairy products that we eat and drink. We look above at our column of light, and know that it is a healing light. By looking at the light above us and then moving our eyes to the cave, we will be able to create a beam of light that goes through the cave and into the crevices of the earth. This light will be able to begin to heal the polluted earth. Let us begin. Look at your column of light and then move your eyes to the cave. Again. Look at your column of light and then move your eyes to your cave. One more time. Look at your column of light and then move your eyes to your cave. Now look at your cave. See the large beam of light that you have created. Feel the warmth that emanates from this light. Know that this warmth represents the healing that this beam of light brings to the earth. Know that this beam will stay in place and will be continuously energized by the column of light that shines above the cave and will continue to shine above the cave after you leave.

Take a deep breath in and out. As you do so, you leave your rock, and your animal transports you to the final location. The ride is a smooth and gentle one and we are extremely comfortable. Your animal takes you to an open field. As you get off your animal, your animal says good-bye to you by smiling, licking you, or by standing still. In return, some of you may pet, feed, talk gently to your animal. Picture this now. As you walk in the field, you look around you. The sun is shining, there is a gentle breeze and the temperature feels perfect. There is lush greenery all around you-the grass is tall, the leaves are large and the shrubs are plush. There are many wildflowers in many different colors. The air feels and smells clean. You notice butterflies flying around you and you hear birds chirping above you. You feel very relaxed. Some of you may decide to sit under a tree, others may decide to lie on the grass, and others of you may decide to continue walking. It does not matter. Whatever you decide to do feels just right. As you do this, you know that this is the way the earth was meant to be. A place of harmony and balance. Every being has its responsibility towards the earth. This includes all of us- the plants, the trees, the insects, the fish, the lizards. This relaxation time is for you, because tonight you fulfilled one of your responsibilities as lightworkers. By the work that you did tonight, you sent good and positive intentions throughout the universe. These positive and good intentions are critical to overcome the shadows, the forces that want us to believe in evil, see evil and perform evil. The universe is grateful for your work. Take as much time as you want in the field before you open your eyes.
