Mneumonic Help for a Meditation

The meditation I hold most dear was given to me years ago by a mystic who  lived atop Black Mountain, North Carolina.  The only difficulty was that there are a series of things to “let go,” and the order has always been difficult for me to remember, and you shouldn’t have to open your eyes and check while doing it–especially when falling asleep.  You can probably do a better job than I did, but at least it’s a start–I came up with the following device for  P N F  R F D  I  :  “Playing iN Fire Raises Fire Departments’ Ire.”  The only possible stumbling block is that you have to remember that “N”  stands for “in.”  The meditation is to be repeated silently for as long as is useful, after imagining that you are being filled with a glowing white light throughout your body:

  1. I release to the light all my Past
  2. I release to the light all my Negatives
  3. I release to the light all my Fears
  4. I release to the light all my human Relationships             
  5. I release to the light my Future
  6. I release  to the light  my Death
  7. I release to the light my Inner self

I am a LIGHT BEING

I RADIATE the light from my Light Center throughout my being.

I radiate the light from my light center to EVERYONE

I radiate the light from my Light Center to EVERYTHING

Before facing a stressful situation:  I am in a BUBBLE of light and only light can come to me and only light can be here now.

(Fill in the blank yourself): Thank you ______ for everything.

He said we can heal others by willing THEIR light to help them…He said the source of light is in the solar plexus, which means “source of light.”

To my readers:  If you come up with a better mnemonic device, please share it!  (It’s like EGBDF —  Every good boy does fine).

About Nan Mykel

I used to think I would be a child prodigy, but then I got old. Formerly I had fantasies of rubbing elbows with cultural and academic leaders but that did not come to pass because I did not become a cultural or academic leader or any other kind of leader, for that matter. I am not even an "Alpha Dog," a term learned from a friend who had to become "Alpha Dog" in order to influence her own pet. (When gazes lock, she never looks away.) For years I expected to become a published author, but in passing I could not avoid the fact that I had little to contribute to the world's bulging dumpsters. I'm embarrassed to report that I also considered my primary process artistic productions powerful, rather than mildly neurotic. Which is not to say that I disrespect myself, only that I am beginning to doubt my potential for making a mark on the world. If I focus on strict self discipline I may be able to keep my garbage removed on a weekly basis, to keep the kitty box changed, the clothes cleaned, the dog watered, fed and walked, but that just catches me up to the starting mark again. When writing I physically grapple with words, wrestling them from their indifference into attempted chunks of awareness. I sit heavily on my chair; I breathe in artificially cooled air; my ear drums note the tap tap of the keyboard and the steady uninterrupted sound of the air conditioner, What is that sound? The roar of the ocean from 30 yards away...Inside, my thoughts are are balls in an electronic game machine, bouncing hither and yon from lever to lever. I am a little grim and intent until I recall a dream related by a black man in the prison where I once worked. He said that when he was a small boy, back home, he dreamed he was standing on his front porch pissing, and that he suddenly found himself pissing stars...
