It is good to do this ritual before any other rituals are performed.
Sit or lay in a place where you will not be disturbed for at least five minutes. Get comfortable. If you are sitting, you back should be straight. Whether sitting or lying down, your arms and legs should not be crossed. If sitting, rest your hands, palms down, in your lap. Your eyes should be closed.
Visualize a ball of beautiful, warm light surrounding your feet. If you can not “see” the ball of light when you visualize it, that is okay. Just know that it is there. truly know that if your powers of visualization were different, you would be able to see it. The ball of golden warm light always brings peace and total relaxation. Wherever the ball of light goes, tension departs. Let it go, and as it goes, feel your feet filled with the warm, golden glow of peace and total relaxation.
Now allow this ball to rise up your legs and up your torso. Then allow it to go down your arms to your fingers, and finally up your neck and into your head until you are completely covered with the warm, golden glow of total peace and relaxation, and all tension is gone. If you notice tension anywhere, send the ball of light there and the tension will vanish.
Stay in this state of deep relaxation for a few moments. Know that you can return to this state whenever you like simply by doing the relaxation ritual. If you are having trouble sleeping, try this instead of suffering or taking dangerous pills. Be at one with yourself.
It is important not to go from a state of deep relaxation into total alertness; the effectiveness of this ritual would be lost. when you are ready to come out of this state of deep relaxation, take three deep breaths and feel fresh life and energy coming into your body with each breath. be sure to record your experiences.
