Dear Ones,

This is the first of three walking meditations gifted by Spirit. This meditation has to do with placing awareness on the energy of the Heart.

General Instructions

  • Those who want to can participate in this meditation while walking.
  • Or if you prefer, you can remain seated and and meditate while sitting down.
  • When the walk is finished, we’ll all sit down and meditate for a few minutes. Then we’ll talk about our experience.

We need a volunteer … who has never done this before … to be the leader!

Directions for the Leader

  • Let your awareness include everyone in the line, for the whole duration of the walk.
  • Keep your stride short enough so that all the people in the line … even those with a short stride … can easily keep up with you.
  • Continue walking for a length of time short enough that everyone can accomplish it with ease.

Directions for People Who Will Walk

  • Assemble in a line, with about a yard between you and the next person in the line. If you can touch them with your arm extended, then you’re too close to them.
  • Begin walking when the person in front of you begins walking; do your best to match their stride.
  • As you walk, pretend that you’re a little child who is just learning to walk. Your mother or your father is just behind you, and they are placing their hand gently on your back, just beneath your shoulder blades, to help you keep your balance, and not fall down. As you walk, feel the gentle touch of their hand on your back.

Directions for Those Who Will Remain Seated

  • Sit in a chair. Spine is straight, feet are flat on the floor, eyes open or closed, hands …  palms up or palms  down, resting on the thighs.
  • Pretend that you’re a little child who is just learning to walk. Your mother or your father is just behind you, and they are placing their hand gently on your back, just beneath your shoulder blades, to help you keep your balance. Feel the gentle touch of their hand on your back.

Directions for the Short Meditation After the Walk

  • Sit in a chair. Spine is straight, feet are flat on the floor, eyes open or closed, hands …  palms up or palms  down, resting on the thighs.
  • Feel your deep heart, next to your spine. Once you are feeling your deep heart, if possible, also feel your heels touching the floor.
  • Continue for a few minutes, then relax.

On Doing This Walking Meditation Alone

You can do this walking meditation alone; you need not walk with other people.

  • If possible, walk outdoors in nature, or on a quiet residential street.
  • Or, it’s fine to walk in a small space in your own home.
  • Remember to pretend that you’re a little child who is just learning to walk. Your mother or your father is just behind you, and they are placing their hand gently on your back, just beneath your shoulder blades, to help you keep your balance, and not fall down. As you walk, feel the gentle touch of their hand on your back.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
