”We can unite in one mind, as citizens of planet earth.”
Ever since I connected with the work of Carol Lamb, energy alignment and meditation has been key to my life and work. I was taught the Emerald Alignment, a simple method of aligning the energy field.
I was also taught an accessible method of meditation, breathing through the bands of the energy field, releasing anxiety and connecting to positive flow. Meditations are then completed with an Emerald Alignment, bringing the whole energy field into balance.
Here you may listen to a meditation incorporating the Emerald Alignment

For many, the idea of taking time to meditate can seem like wishful thinking. When it seems as though there are not enough hours in the day, meditation can be a nice idea, which we’ll definitely try sometime – one day when we’re not so busy!

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift.” Albert Einstein
When we meditate, we bring ourselves a gift. Life brings up many questions and all of the answers to the questions lie within ourselves. First of all, we need to be willing to stop and to turn within. Then we can learn to look, listen, and trust. The word trust comes from the Old Norse ‘traust’, which held the meaning of ‘strong’.

Meditation can involve both wandering and wondering! The mind wanders and when we find it difficult to quieten our thoughts, we may decide that we are no good at meditation and so give up. It helps to remember that the mind will always judge and criticize our attempts to be still.
The mind is outraged at being sidelined and this is part of its defense. We can choose to understand and accept that.

Every one of us emits an electromagnetic field. These fields of energy and the information contained in them change according to what we are thinking and how we are feeling.
Our emotions affect not only our own nervous system but others around us in profound ways. Each person’s individual energy affects both the collective energy and the environment.

I was working in an office that overlooked a river, running through the centre of town. It was good to be able to step outside and take a refreshing break by the water. A heron often visited here, swooping gracefully down, to the delight of those passing by.
People would stop and take a moment to watch as the heron stood very still by the water, providing a picture of poise and a focus for a moment of calm reflection.

If we find ourselves shut in a very dark room, it takes a while for our eyes to adjust. At first we can’t see anything at all. Then, if there is even the smallest chink of light, we begin to get our bearings.
We are able to make out shapes, find our way around and locate the door! Even a tiny amount of light can help us to change our situation, once we have adapted.

“I am only one, but I am one.
I cannot do everything but I can do something.
And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.”
Edward Everett Hale
These are turbulent times and in the midst of so much conflict and chaos, hearts are troubled. Many people are feeling uncertainty, anxiety and fear in their everyday lives. Collectively we are facing huge challenges and crises. There is a growing sense that we have an emergency on our hands and there is a yearning for greater peace and stability. In different ways people are asking: “What can I do that will help?”
