First thing each morning for the past several weeks, I’ve been writing a meditation a day inspired by one of my goddess paintings, as part of the manuscript for Goddess Heart Rising: Paintings, Poems & Meditations for Invoking the Full Feminine Force Within You.
The excerpt below was inspired by my Rainbow Woman painting.
Inside you shimmers a pathway arced across the sky.
Step up on this bridge of color.
Immerse yourself in every hue to reach
the promise of your wholly realized self.
When you have a problem
you can bridge to solution
once you find this pathway
between Earth and Sky.
Feel your hands in the yellow.
Feel your hips in the orange.
Feel your mind growing mellow
as you cross the sky.
Green beckons you lightly.
You step right into it.
It feeds your heart
and cleans your mind.
As you move into aqua ever so briefly,
feel its fluidity sparkle and shine.
Feel the blue flowing all the way through you.
Clear space is growing throughout all your cells.
Move into indigo.
Rest in its knowing,
deeper and deeper
developed in you.
Wise sight is blinking
as you move into violet,
the harmonizing of your red and your blue
into a new state of being.
Breathe into its radiant world.
Breathe it through every layer of you.
Breathe it into your core of protection
and breathe it out all the way around you.
From within this beautiful bubble,
you can experience a shining world.
From this place removed from trouble,
you can step into the swirl of crimson beckoning you.
Breathe its octave from magenta to geranium
all the way through.
Every tint of red is flowing,
strengthening, enlivening, all of you.
Stride your way into brilliant orange,
gleaming inside and all around you.
Breathe into its vital glow
and breathe it out into all you know.
Step into the field of yellow,
golden sunshine warming you.
Breathe it into all your being
and breathe it out through your ways of being.
All its colors wind through you.
Submerge yourself into the green now,
spring-new to emerald and forest true.
Breathe its nourishment to the center of each cell,
and breathe its nourishment to the world you love so well,
as it leads you to step gently
into blue of water and sky,
every tint drawing nigh.
So breathe this spacious sweetness into your full completeness.
and breathe its freedom out to liberate all about
as you move into the enveloping night-sky blue,
the velvety revelation of your indigo knowing.
Breathe this velvet in to your atoms’ very spin,
and breathe this velvet out to the deep world about
that yields to you it mystery view.
Stroll now into purple, plum violet, wine, cranberry creation.
Soak in its libation.
Breathe the purple through,
further vitalizing the full you,
as you breathe it out like a funnel,
through which you slide like a tunnel,
tumbling gently out into green grass.
You are the rainbow now, at last,
as you move into the life your consciousness has cast.
