How to use Meditation to
send out Peace, Love, Healing, etc.
As a healer, meditation teacher, and writer I thought I had better put my skills together
and write a brief guide on how to do this for the members of our Back to The Garden
facebook group specifically, but also to share more widely.
Part of the purpose of the group is to meditate during any of the suggested timeslots to
link up around the world with others doing it at the same time, and send out waves of
positive thoughts and wishes to help create the changes we wish to see in the world. I
have recently come across a term that people seem to be using for this subtle activism.
Anyone can do simple meditations by taking a few deep breaths and then allowing
yourself to relax and breathe gently, focusing on the breaths and letting your mind
become still. If you have trouble relaxing, it can help to begin with some simple
exercises to release stress from your body, such as you might do to warm up for any
sports session. If you have trouble with your mind chattering at you, just pretend you are
laying each thought aside on a shelf and then continuing. You can also focus on a candle,
flower, crystal, whatever you like if that helps. As you become more relaxed your sight
tends to go slightly out of focus, so dont try to keep it sharp, just allow your eyes to
soften and even close if you wish. Just relaxing like this regularly is very good for you,
but we need to go a bit further to meditate for our purposes.
Once you are relaxed you need to get yourself into a state of readiness to send your
thoughts out without losing any of your personal energy. So, first take your attention to
your feet, or the bottom of your spine, depending on whether you are standing or sitting,
and just feel a connection with the earth (as if you are literally earthing an electrical
circuit, or you might like to think of it as rooting yourself like a plant in our natural home).
Just having the intention to make the connection is enough to create it, trust your
ability, we all have these inherent skills.
The second stage is to connect with the universe or whatever you believe to be the source
of your power, God, angels, whatever, it all works. Ask that this source send energy into
you, and imagine it coming into the top of your head, or into your heart. Continue to sit
quietly breathing for a while, just feeling the energy going all around you. Know now
that however much you send out, it will be replaced directly from the source, so that you
cannot become depleted, as it is not drawing on your own energy, which you need to
keep yourself well, it is simply flowing through you.
Finally you may begin to form whatever thoughts you wish to send out to the world, and
just sent them out in whatever way works best for you. It could be a stream, or it could
be in little packets, like leaves and seeds on the wind, even flowers and hearts too.
Sometimes it helps to see the colours. Some people like to just do this silently, and some
like to speak out loud, or even sing or chant their intended messages. You dont even
need to be physically still, you can do this whole thing while dancing or walking.
Once you are done, just return your focus to your breathing, and gradually become aware
of your surroundings until you feel you are back to your normal waking state. Rub hands
and feet if it helps. Move slowly to start with, and have a drink of water.
The trick of using altered states of consciousness such as in meditation or healing is not
to try too hard, dont force it, just be gentle, and it will come naturally as you practice.
An added tip perhaps is to try using affirmations to get you even better prepared for
sending out your messages. Once you have done the parts about grounding yourself to
the earth, and connecting with the universe etc to receive energy, you can increase the
sense of the energy coming into you by using affirmations such as : I love. I am loved.
Breathe deeply and smile as you feel the energy coming in. This is not love as in a
romance, it is a deep two way connection with the universe or your God, so that you
actually become one with it all and you ARE love. It fills you up with strength and
security, and knowledge that you are safe to participate fully in life, including sending out
beautiful energy to the world. You can imagine pink flower and new leaf green colours
too if you like, as those are the heart energy colours, so the visualisation will enhance the affirmation.

We attract what we focus on - so let us
focus on what we want, instead of
worrying about what we don't want.
So - I want to create a forum for
the sharing of ideas & information,
but also a way to co-ordinate global
meditation link ups,
whereby we create and transmit a
blueprint of our new garden for humanity
and all species.
We can create local groups and/or we can
simply meditate at home or wherever we
happen to be at the time.
The idea is that we all link up with this
idea of planting good seeds of thought
into the ground of consciousness
for our new world to spring from. We can
just silently think these thoughts
ourselves, or we can say them out loud,
or chant or sing them in groups. Let's
make sure we plant good positive and
useful seeds, such as
LOVE, PEACE, TRUTH, FREEDOM, RESPECT,
WELLBEING (Holistic Health of Mind, Body
FORGIVENESS, BALANCE, GRATEFULNESS,
JOY..... etc etc -
Please see my tapestry picture with ideas
for words and phrases shown in the
leaves, hearts, and flowers,
and other comments on the info page, for
ideas to start with.
If we set time slots for each country or
then people can aim to link in during
those specific times wherever possible,
to heighten the effect.
Thursdays - between 10am and 2pm (join in
on your tea or lunch break!)
Thursdays - early evening (bless your
suppers too) 6-8pm.
(On the first and third thursday of each
month at the Living Light Healing
Sanctuary, Quaker Meeting House in
similar Earth and personal healing group
meditation takes place at 7.30pm
with one-to-one Spiritual Healing from
8pm to 9.30pm every thursday. All are
Sundays - between 3pm and 8pm (join in on
your lazy sunday afternoons)
Mondays - late evenings whatever time you
can to aim to link in with USA times.
See below for Timezones for USA
& some other countires.
You don't have to hold groups, just
commit to devoting a few minutes at a
certain time of a certain day,
and we will let others know to link in...
but groups are great too.
We create our own reality - so take
responsibility to get your thoughts
positive and plan your intentions with

group Back to The Garden & help
spread the word.
Back to The Garden
all welcome to join in
co-ordiante meditation times around the
globe - use the time zone map
So our Monday late
one, say if we went for midnight, it
would be 7pm in New York,
6pm in Texas, 5pm in the midwest and only
4pm on the west coast.
It would be 8pm in most of S America, but
a bit later as you head over N West.
Cairo and Cape Town and most of Europe is
one hour ahead of us
so we could link in with them on all our
earlier timed days.
Israel, Red Sea, Turkey, Greece etc are
3hrs ahead of us so can likewise link in
India is 5 to 6 hours ahead, so the
earlier times are best.
Australia is 7 / 8 / 9 hours ahead of us
going from west to east, so our sunday
and Thursday early ones are best to link
in with them.
New Zealand is 11 hrs ahead, so only the
earliest part of our thursday one will
to other sites and contacts relevant to
our aims - information, resources,
local community networking,
co-operatives, alternative systems,
conscious co-creation, global link ups,
creativity that expresses our aims.
