A Starry Imagining 2 mins 30 secs
Created as a gift to inspire the imagination. There has been much fear and heartache at the result of the virus worldwide, and I want to inspire hope in both children and adults through creativity. We can go anywhere, do anything, in imaginings where healing can begin from the inner heart.

Karen has a natural gift to take on you on a transformative journey that can ignite the light within your heart and soul.
I used the 'Drawing the Feeling of Rain' with my class during daily meditation time. This meditation inspired some very heartfelt illustrations and prayers from the children for rain."

MEDITATION: Welcome in peace, breathe out fear
Here in Australia there is so much fear around because of the bush fires*. This is a simple process to play whenever you are feeling fearful. Suitable for children and adults. Play it as often as you need. Good to play also just before going to sleep.
You can also do this meditation substituting 'fear' with another emotion if you wish.
*POSTSCRIPT Pandemic ~ this process is just as relevant in times of Covid-19. Breathe in peace, breathe out fear.

WHAT WE FOCUS ON ...
THE FEELING OF RAIN and a BLANKET OF LOVE
Many of us are suffering from the bush fires in Australia. Some of us are very close to them. Some are already evacuated or suffered losses. It is real and it can feel very overwhelming.
I am not going to pretend it isn't happening. It is very real to my own family. But I am doing my best to encourage you to find and feel into the inner peace in your heart by grounding and then visualising.
A friend took us through a beautiful visualisation meditation this week about a blanket of energetic love ... it is to feel into the love inside us. Expand it out - ripple it out - and join with all others praying similarly for a blanket of love to quench the fires and allow the rain to fall.
Because what we focus on, brings more of it, I want to encourage you see this it in your mind. Visualise it with gratitude.
And 'hear' the rain in your mind. Nurturing, healing, nourishing rain.
May you stay safe and feel inner peace through the festive season wherever you are. We are all in this together.

THE FEELING OF RAIN 1.46mins
A short GUIDED MEDITATION for all ages - an activity for you or your child - for the child in you - to help you through anxious times.
This is an imagining exercise ... what does the rain feel like? Think of the joy, blessings, nurturing, healing rain … how do you feel rain? How would you draw it?
AFTER NOTES ...
This meditation was created to encourage visualising prayers for healing, nurturing rain because at this time there is a collective fear consciousness of the ongoing drought and bushfires (wildfires). When the collective consciousness sends prayers to God/the Universe, in an attitude of gratitude not fear, then good things start happening. And it will make you feel good to do it as well. This one is about the feeling of rain and is suitable for children and the child in you.Also a good exercise to do with a school class.I hope this guided meditation serves you.
Nov 2019: Snippet of children's drawings sent in by a teacher who used the meditation in class. The children drew their own responses. They put them on a floor altar with their prayers for healing nurturing rain. (Very grateful to teacher for sending in this photo.)
Many parts of Australia, including ours, are suffering serious bush fires (wild fires) and drought. Many children have anxiety about the drought. I am adding meditations to this page to help children, and the child in us, in a small way to think in a different way and to join in a ripple effect of energy and prayers for rain.
