This guided meditation is designed to help you expand your consciousness through imagination and visualization. It is intended to remind you that there is a Universal Intelligence guiding all of creation and that we can attune ourselves with that Intelligence. The meditation is inspired by the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, and Michael Singer, author of The Untethered Soul and The Surrender Experiment.
