The Golden Light Meditation

Goodmorning all,

The golden light meditation is one of my favorite meditations. First of all because I love my bed and laying down when meditating. Second, when I first started meditating I tried it in the classic Buddha pose but I never really felt comfortable with that. So I was happy to learn that there are other ways to meditate. This meditation is also one of the easiest, imho, and since it is best to do this meditation in bed just after you wake up or just before you go to sleep….why not, you are already there…. 😉


This is a simple method of transforming your energy and leading it upwards. The process is to be done at least twice a day. The best time is early in the morning, just before you get up from your bed. The moment you feel you are alert, awake, do it for twenty minutes. Do it then and there, immediately, because when you are coming out of sleep you are very, very delicate, receptive. When you are coming out of sleep you are very fresh and the impact will go very deep. When you are just coming out of sleep you are less in the mind than ever, hence some gaps are there through which the method will penetrate into your innermost core. And early in the morning when you are awakening and when the whole earth is awakening, there is a great tide of awakening energy all over the world – use that tide, don’t miss that opportunity.

All ancient religions used to pray early in the morning when the sun rose, because the rising of the sun is the rising of all the energies in existence. In that moment you can simply ride on the rising energy wave; it will be easier. By the evening it will be difficult, energies will be falling back; then you will be fighting against the current. In the morning you will be going with the current.

You simply lie down as you are lying down in your bed, on your back. Keep your eyes closed. When you breathe in, just visualize great light entering through your head into your body, as if a sun has risen just close to your head. You are just hollow, and the golden light is pouring into your head, and going, going, deep, deep, and going out through your toes. When you breathe in, do it with this visualization. That golden light will help. It will cleanse your whole body and will make it absolutely full of creativity. This is male energy.

And when you breathe out visualize another thing: darkness entering through your toes, a great dark river entering through your toes, coming up and going out from the head. Do slow, deep breathing so you can visualize. This is feminine energy. It will soothe you, it will make you receptive, it will calm you, it will give you rest. Go very slowly, and just out of sleep you can have very deep and slow breaths, because the body is rested, relaxed.

The second best time is when you are going back to sleep, in the night. Lie down on the bed, relax for a few minutes. When you start feeling that now you are wavering between sleep and waking, just in that middle, start the process again. Do it for twenty minutes. If you fall asleep doing it, it is the best, because the impact will remain in the subconscious and will go on working.

If you do this simple method for three months, you will be surprised – there is no need to repress, transformation has started happening.

For me meditation changed my whole life. My whole perception on life and how I live. It is just a tool to become more aware and awareness, I found, is the key to true happiness. I sincerely believe that if we teach our children meditation or just to become more aware that tomorrow we wake up in a new world. I am really curious what meditation means to you and what role it plays in your life. Looking forward to read about your experiences!

Enjoy your day, love yourself!Teach children meditation

    I saved this post to read for when I felt ready, which is now. There is one thing that I do not get which I do not get though. It has nothing up do with the meditation technique but with the time of the day. You write that doing this in the early morning is best because the whole earth is waking up. How do you figure that? Isn’t the sunrise the same as the sundown depending on your location?

    1. Hello Iridacea, welcome! Have fun with the meditation and it will probably stick easier for you while, like I said in the post, you have to do it immediately when you wake up and since you already there and have nothing better to do 😉
      Keep on shining, enjoy & have fun!

  5. Thanks for sharing that meditation. I look forward to trying that. Out of curiosity, when you do that meditation, do you do it for a certain duration, say 15 minutes at a time, or do you not worry about that? Are your short meditations as effective as your long ones?

    1. Welcome TherunningLlama (great name)! I don’t do it for a fixed duration. I believe one should do meditation when you feel like it. But this one mostly around half an hour to an hour. But of course that is really personal. Effectiveness has nothing to do with how long you do something. It’s the same old quality vs quantity thing. It depends of the sort of meditation and the way you incorporate it in your daily life whether one meditation is working for you or not.
