First, A Poem:
Violet Light Meditation
When I meditate, there often appears
A small round violet light expanding
Till its size overflows my inward eye.
And then suddenly appears small again
And yet again already expanding,
Repeating the expansion and collapse
Over and over and over again
Until I see, hear, feel, and know nothing
But cosmic awakeness to awareness,
humming and bristling with exuberance.
Meditation can help reduce stress and gives people the chance to spend a little time with themselves.
Spending just a few minutes every day quietening the mind and giving emotions and soul a little tender loving care through meditation helps make people more relaxed and more effective in their daily lives. The symbolism in the tarot cards can help those who find it difficult to control their thoughts in meditation. Focus on one card a day to calm the mind and to gain insight into the subconscious.
The High Priestess Tarot Card in Meditation
Symbolic of the universal principle of intuition and perception. When drawn to this card try to imagine the veiled face of a goddess crowned with the moon in your meditations. The moon represents the mother, feelings instincts and fertility. The symbols on this card represent a state of harmony. Focus on your feelings as this card tells you to trust your intuition.
Use this card in your meditations to help you listen and be guided by that small voice within. If you’ve not found it easy to trust your intuition, focus on what is deep inside. Ask that you remember your dreams and understand the symbolism within them.

Benefits of Meditation
You already know this but I’ll repeat it anyway – meditation helps people improve their powers of concentration as well as bringing relaxation and greater peace of mind.
