Enjoy listening to, or singing along with, this Soul Song by Joyce.
Consider it a prayer in song for enhancing your sense of peaceful illumination of your being. The words are:
Oh Holy Light, illumine me.
Shine in my Heart, and set me free.
E – e – e, E – e – e. Ah – a – a, Ah – a – a. Oh – h – h, Oh – h – h.
As you chant or listen to it, feel yourself relax and begin to flow with it. Close your eyes and really sense the song helping to bring you into an inspired sense of upliftment.
While experiencing the Soul Song, you may also enjoy gazing at the image to the right.

Find yourself in a comfortable place and position where you will not be disturbed. Click the player to start the guided meditation.
If possible, listen to some relaxing nonverbal music. Say a short prayer calling on the Divine to bless your meditation and enhance Divine Illumination in your life.
Visualize yourself in a ball of light to help strengthen your energy field. Become aware of and follow your breath as it gently flows in and out at its own pace. Imagine yourself as a large tree sending powerful roots deep into the earth to help you feel grounded and prevent possibly feeling spacey.
As you breathe in your nose, imagine you are breathing up the strength of the earth into your body. For a couple minutes listen to the relaxing music as you follow your breath.
Next visualize pure white light. Periodically as you breathe in your nose, imagine that you are breathing glowing white light into your whole being. Silently pray to the Divine that your life be uplifted and blessed with Divine Illumination.
Next breathe in your nose and out your mouth for about a minute VERY GENTLY. Now, very gently breathe in your mouth and out your nose for about a minute. Then extra gently breathe in and out your mouth for a minute or so. Now return to breathing in and out your nose. As you breathe in your nose, imagine you are breathing in pure white light into your whole being. As you breathe out your nose, periodically say one or two of the following affirmations (or something similar).
I breathe in Divine Light with each breath.
I am filled with Divine Light and I shine it out to those around me.
I open to receive God’s Divine Light and Peace.
Pray to the Divine that you truly be blessed with Divine Illumination.
When you are ready to conclude your meditation, thank the Divine and then send down roots to Mother Earth for stability and grounding.
This meditation is helpful to support awakening to higher levels of your own consciousness and to the Divine. This meditation is about 34 minutes long. It includes meditating on the seven major chakras or energy centers which are located in the area of the base of the spine, abdomen, solar plexus, chest, throat, brow and top of head - -and the star chakra which is a foot above the head.
Activating the chakras helps to strengthen your energy field/aura and lift your consciousness. I encourage you to meditate with this audio (or something quite similar with the 7 major chakras and star chakra) at least once or twice a week. The other days of the week, I encourage you to utilize the fourteen-minute meditations included with the other divine qualities (such as love, peace, joy) which you can access through the pages you see when you first open this section of “SONGS AND MEDITATIONS.” Check out this great video
