The best time to do these exercises is when you're wide awake, sitting in a comfortable, upright chair, feet flat on the ground, hand on thighs. If you try to do them while you're in bed, you'll likely go to sleep. Try to do them at least once a day.
The first is that old stand-by, the grounding cord. I don't know about you, but I had the habit of putting my grounding cord in place and pretty much forgetting about it. But let's try something else. Drop the one you're using right now, and create another one. But make it a fun grounding cord. Make it a snake, or a crocodile or a column of flowers or something else equally ridiculous. What it looks like doesn't matter - it will work Make sure it's firmly attached and send it to the center of the earth. Put a rock on it to keep it there. Ok, so it doesn't have to be a rock. Make it an elephant, instead. Or anything else you want it to be. Now widen that sucker up. Make it as wide as your hips - and put a flush button on it. 'Cause you're going to be flushing a lot of negative energy later on.
You're probably thinking that I've lost my mind right about now, me talking about snakes and crocodiles and elephants - yes? Ah, but there's a method to my madness. Fun is empowering. Laughter is empowering. Remember when we were children? Everything was possible. So I want you to try to get away from being all serious and somber, and find the lighter side of yourself that makes everything possible.
The golfers wife was in full flight. "If you ever spent a Sunday with me instead of playing golf I swear I would drop dead," she screamed.
"There's no point in trying to bribe me," replied the husband.
Now, find the center of your head. Use your fingers to help you, using points just above your ears and points at an equal level on your forehead and back of head. Feel where those lines intersect. That's the center of your head. Now close your eyes and be there. This is your room, your space. What does it look like? What's in it? Are you alone in there, or is there someone else there, too? If there's anyone else there, invite them to leave - firmly. This is your space alone. Now it's time to do some house-cleaning. Remember that flush button I had you put on your grounding cord? Turn it on and start sweeping and dusting getting rid of the clutter in your "room". When you feel that you're done, go ahead and give your grounding cord an extra "flush".
I'm going to be making use of the concepts of auras and chakras. If you're not familiar with these, there are several sites on the web that explain them.
Now imagine a rose (Because that's the image I was taught to use. If you want to use something else, go ahead). See that rose as clearly as you can. This is a cleaning rose. This rose is going to sweep through your space and suck up the energy from that annoying person at work that just wouldn't shut up, or kept finding fault, or kept coming on to you, etc. It's going to absorb the energy caused by that reckless or rude driver that you encountered when you were driving. It's going to round up *all* of those negative energies. When it has absorbed as much as it can, throw it out in the middle of a field, or the street, and explode it. If you need another rose, go ahead and create it and let it get what was left over - then throw and explode it, as well. Repeat as necessary.
When you're done with that, imagine a big, golden sun above your head. And have that sun start gathering up all your energy that you've left around the various places and with the various people you've been to and interacted with today. And when you feel that your sun has absorbed all it can, bring it down to touch your head and feel all that energy flowing into you, into your head through your seventh chakra, down your neck to your spine where it splits into four channels - two on each side of your spine - on down to your first chakra and let a little bit go down your grounding cord, as well. Feel it spread out from your fifth chakra down first your right arm to your hand, then the left. Feel it going out first one leg, then the other. Then, when you're ready, stretch, reach down and touch the floor. Then go ahead and get up and move around.
There was this truck driver who had to deliver 500 penguins to the state zoo. As he was driving his truck through the dessert he breaks down. After about 3 hours he waves another truck down and offers the driver $500 to take these penguins to the state zoo for him.
The next day the original truck driver arrives in town and sees the new truck driver crossing the road with 500 penguins walking in single file behind him.
The original truck driver jumps out of his truck and asks, "What's going on? I gave you $500 to take these penguins to the zoo!"
The new truck driver responds, "I did take them to the zoo. And I had enough money left over, so now we're going to see a movie."
