Guided Nature Meditation Demo

After an empowering, meditative experience in a river on Bodmin Moor I felt moved to try my hand at writing a guided meditation based on those moments.

Afterwards I sat on the banks of the river and read through the scrawls in my notebook to create this offering.

This is something very new and different for me , so I would appreciate any feedback or constructive criticism to help me improve! Too long? Too short? Tone of voice needing tweaking?

Let me know in the comments or in a PM. Is this something which would call to you as a regular offering? What settings do you find meditative in nature?

I hope that this gift finds you well and leaves you feeling peaceful


A Weed’s Farewell

For those who dwell where they are not appreciated. May you find your place to bloom.

Bolted, like a plant too eager to bloom

Now stretched out, gone to seed and

Full of the bitterness of pressure

And changeable weather.

Hack me back to my roots

Take the seeds of potential

Which I have quietly nurtured

And spread them far from here.

Where the water is plentiful

And the seasons mild

Where I can turn my face to the sun

And dance in the rain.

In your eyes I have been but a troublesome weed

Yet when you watch me bloom and unfurl

I guarantee that you will see what I have

Always known, 

in my roots,

in my quiet wisdom

I am a radiant, strong and passionate flower.
