I adapted the “Candle Light Meditation” for autumn and winter (second version). It is excellent for you if you love light and have a hard time with the darkness and cold…
The adapted version allows you to feel light and warmth in you.
This Meditation is also very effective in training the brain to stay attentive and focus on one object.
First, prepare your room: Switch off or lower the artificial lights and ensure the room temperature is agreeable. Then sit down in a chair or on a cushion, wherever it is comfortable and still easy to stay with your spine straight and be awake and alert.
Switch off all electronic devices that could ring and distract you (TV, Cellphone, computer etc.)
Put a candle about arm’s length away so you can easily look at it without being blinded by the light of the flame. Look at the flame constantly without moving your body while keeping your eyes on the candle’s light. It could be that your eyes start to water, and that’s okay. With practice, it’s gonna be easier!
At a certain moment, you will notice that everything around the candle’s flame disappears; that’s a physical phenomenon when the eyes don’t move. So only the light and you exist, and actually, you are dissolving in the light…
And as a variant, especially for autumn and winter:
The Light Inside:
Do the same stages as above and look at the flame. This time let the candlelight look at you. Allow your eyes to become soft, and let the light enter your inner being. Permit the light to fill every cell of your body!
Once you feel, see, or sense your body filled with light, imagine and feel the warmth of the light and allow your whole body to be filled up with this warmth.
Bath in this light and warmth until you’re all blissed out!
