Three-minute healing circle

Ideally, do this after a daily practice of meditation, when the mind is still and calm, and the body rested, yet alert.

Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your back straight, in a peaceful place where you won’t be disturbed. Take a few deep breaths, releasing any thoughts, knowing this time is for you, and for those who may wish for your help…

First  minute: create the healing circle.

As you breathe in, picture a white light in the centre of you, glowing and sparkling brightly, like a diamond. As you breathe out, picture the white light radiating outwards from your hands, creating a large white circular space in front of you: a healing space. As you continue to breathe out, send out an invitation to all who may wish for healing, to enter the circle. Each time you breathe in, see the diamond at the centre of you glowing and sparkling ever more brightly. Each time you breathe out, see the healing circle in front of you shining more and more brightly. Continue to send out a general invitation to all who may wish for healing.

Second minute: maintain the healing circle.

As you breathe in, and as you breathe out, continue to maintain the shining white healing circle in front of you. See people enter the circle, and stand in it, soaking up the healing white light. You may recognise people; you may see strangers; you may see a mixture of both. You may see nothing; just trust in the process and continue. The people do not see you. They simply approach the circle and stand inside it, soaking up the light. As you continue to breathe in and out, be aware that the whole of you, too, is glowing and sparkling with healing white light.

Third minute: close down the healing circle.

Send out a thank you to all who have entered the circle, and watch them begin to leave. As you continue to breathe in and out, gradually let the light settle down, fade, and return to normal levels. As it does so, the last people leave the circle, and then the circle itself vanishes.

Repeat as often as you like. A daily practice works well. Or try a weekly practice. If you do this regularly, you will see more and more people enter your circle.

The minutes, by the way, don’t have to be exact. They’re just a rough guide.

  1. Looking forward to trying this one Suzanne – sounds wonderful. Thank you.

  2. Glad you like it, Barbara. It’s one of my favourite healing exercises : )

  3. Thanks for sharing this technique, Suzanne! It’s incredibly timely, given the “busy-ness” that nearly everyone feels compelled to engage in at this time of year. Simple exercises like this can make such a difference — I’m looking forward to putting the 3-minute circle into practise, to help me increase my mindfulness. Thanks again!

    • You are so welcome, Terry. When we do step out of the ‘busyness’ for a few minutes, it’s amazing what a difference it can make, to ourselves, and to others. Good luck with your Three-Minute Healing Circle!

  4. PS I love the look that you and Brendan have given his wonderful website http://www.brendanmooney.co.uk/blog/ It’s brilliant!

    • Thanks so much! I’m just responsible for the techie bits — Brendan is the driver behind the content!

  5. Great blog Suzanne, I am 100% with Terry about the benefits of the circle, and I think it might be very timely that I have read this! Long story. Thank you for your wisdom and insight!

    • Thank you, Brendan. Your praise means a lot to me. There is something very modern, yet timeless about brevity. In my experience much of the best guidance comes in small doses!

    • Glad you found the three-minute healing circle relaxing, Joe. You are most welcome to post this on your site, and attribution to me and a link to my site http://www.suzanneaskham.com would be much appreciated. Your own site looks amazing. I love your description of energy channels being like a hosepipe that sometimes needs straightening – a great, easy-to-visualize image.
