Begin by placing your tongue on the spot where your teeth and gums come together. Take a deep breath through your nose 1…2…3…4… hold that breath 1…2...3...4...5...6...7 exhale through your mouth 1….2…3…4…5…6…7…8 repeat this process 3 more times. Now that you are finished begin to breath normally. Now relax your feet. Feel that nice relaxing feeling moving up your calves, through your knees and into the thighs. Feel your legs grow heavy and sink into their point of contact…… Feel that nice warm feeling moving through the muscles of your buttocks and into your stomach…..feel the muscles relax and the tightness leave…….Feel that relaxation moving up your chest and back, feel your shoulder blades press into the point of contact….Feel that nice relaxing feeling moving into your shoulders and down your arm…. feel it moving into your hands. A nice tingling feeling in your hands as you let yourself go……Feel the relaxation move up your neck, into your scalp…..down the front of your brow. Feel the forehead smooth out and lose its creases……feel the relaxation move into your jaw…unclench your teeth…..feel your chin drop……Relax…..Relax
Now you find yourself in nice comfortable surroundings. There is a gentle breeze blowing….The birds are singing…You can feel the sun on your face. You feel that nice warm yellow light penetrating your skin…. warming you from within. Feel the power of that light….You are surrounded by the aura of the yellow light that serves as your armor. An armor of warm strong yellow light that allows energy for you highest and greatest good to flow inward and that which needs to be let go to flow outward, away from you. It is always there, all you need to do is recognize it. It is you and the armor is yours. Feel yourself fill with confidence, power and courage. Feel the fear, aggression, and need to control leave you as you fill with the yellow light of true power, confidence, and courage. You are capable of doing anything…Think of the person(s) to whom you have given your personal power. Be comfortable with the knowledge that is belongs to you, and it is time now for you to reclaim it.
Envision the person(s) to whom you leak your personal power….. See them standing at the edge of this area….…..In their hand is the scepter of your power that you have relinquished to them…..Feel the heat of the spiritual warrior coursing through your veins, feel the yellow light of your power….Stretch out your hand toward the scepter…..Call it to you……Watch it jump out of the grasp of the other person and fly into your grasp. You have no need to fight with this person, no aggression is necessary. Just call to you what is yours by right. You are now in possession of your personal power. It has always been yours, and you have a right to it. You are now the wielder of this power. You have the confidence to use it wisely.
You stride forward confident in your power. No aggression is necessary as you gently walk up to this person, hold the scepter of you personal power out to show them, and say in a nice soft voice. “This is my personal power, and I will never relinquish it to you or any other person. I have the confidence to use it for my own greater good, and I will not need your help any longer.” Wave your hand at this person in a dismissive gesture, and watch them blink out of sight……
Lie down with your scepter of personal power……Feel the confidence that it instills in you. Absorb the power and make it yours. The scepter is a mere representation of that which is in you. Know that you are courageous, because you had the strength to take back your personal power, and dismiss the person to whom you had given it. You are a Golden Spiritual Warrior. You have divine guidance, and can call it from within you at anytime. You are surrounded by the aura of the yellow light that serves as your armor. It is always there, all you need to do is recognize it. Notice how it feels to have taken back this power so you will recognize it again. This power and feeling are available to you when you need it. Simply call on it, and it will come.
Your power is strong, and will become stronger every time you call the armor of yellow light. Come to this place often, and feel the strength of your power grow with each visit. You are welcome here at any time day or night.
Now I’m going to count backwards form 5 to 1. 5…your are beginning to rouse from the visualization….4 you feel confident and powerful…3 your courage is always available…2 your power and divine guidance are yours at will….1 you are fully aware of your surroundings, your eyes are open and you feel relaxed and rested.
