The Magic Circle

I first came across this phrase “circles of integration” while reading a website about a “retreat” in Arizona, a new age hippy style retreat.

I thought to myself what a wonderful idea to take time out in my day to integrate, well at least record my thoughts and ideas. I started a folder to collect my writings during these “circles of integration times”. Throughout the week I noticed many ways to use circles in meditation.

1. Circles of Light and Love

Breathe deeply and imagine a beam of white light coming down from Divine Source. Continue breathing and expand this beam of white light until you are completely surrounded by a circle of white light. Drop into your heart and imagine rays of love encircling you. From this circle see your love and blessings going out to others. See this love and blessings returning to you.

2. Circles of Release

While in a calm, relaxed state, imagine a circle a few feet in front of you. Into this circle put all your concerns, worries, fears and doubt. Then release this circle to Divine Source. See your concerns floating away like water evaporating in sunlight.

3. Circles of Receiving

Breathe deeply and imagine a circle of light around you. Gently bring back any scattered energy. Breathe and receive the energy peace. Feel this energy wash over you. Breathe and receive the energy of joy and love. Receive this energy in any way that it appears, as a color, a sound, or a breeze. Expand the circle slightly so that you are open to receive more peace, more joy, more love.

4. Circles of Gratitude

Try writing your gratitude list of physical and symbolic circles: bowls, cups, plates, pots, the sun, the earth, a lamp, a ring, a candle and a happy face.

    I really love this “circle” idea of integration and the four types of circles. I honor your intention of expansion. Growing Blessings to all that connect with this.
