Meditation on the Soul of America
by Corinne McLaughlin
Begin by taking a few deep breaths to relax your body, emotions and mind. Link inwardly with all of those around the country who are also meditating for the U.S. at this time, connecting with them heart to heart and soul to soul.
Take a moment to ground yourself and connect with the earth. Now align with your highest self, the infinite source of love and wisdom within your own heart. Connect with the great teachers in whatever spiritual tradition you feel closest to.
See light and love pouring in through the top of your head, feeling yourself becoming lighter and freer.
Deep in your heart, get in touch with your love for America. Align with her soul, her highest purpose, and the principles upon which she was founded.
Visualize our country being re-united around a common vision for our future, with opportunities for each citizen to contribute their part.
Reflect on what you personally can do to help our nation, in whatever field of work where you can best contribute your skills and gifts.
Now imagine all of us in this meditation standing together in the crown of the Statue of Liberty, in the room at the top where we can look out on the expansive view across the countryside. See the statue compassionately welcoming people from around the world, and see our nation being protected and guided.
See a great light from the heart of God, the heart of the universe, surrounding and filling our nation, her people and our natural environment.
See our nation cooperating with other nations to serve their highest good and create greater peace, health and prosperity for all the people of our planet.
To conclude, again take a few deep breaths and focus your attention back into the room where you’re sitting, with your feet firmly on the ground.
