"The Crime of the Century" Exercise (Unit 3)

This was yet again another interesting experience with guided meditation...

The exercise started out very well for me.  I was sitting comfortably at my desk in a similar fashion as during the Unit 2 activity.  This being the second guided meditation I have now completed it has made me begin to recognize the power of suggestion as I focus on the speaker's every word.  I really enjoyed the rainbow meditation...I have a vivid imagination and was able to really visualize the colors emanating from me as vibrant beams of light.  I found the most spectacular part of this visualization to be near the end when all the colors slowly vanished and turned into a bright white light surrounding me.  Unfortunately it was about this time that a distraction caused by the thunderstorm going on outside derailed my focus.  I do not know if it was the unexpectedness of this event but my heart began to race and coincidentally my baby started becoming quite active as well and kicking quickly.  Thankfully this was near the end of the exercise as I was left aware of my surroundings for the remainder of the time.


  1. Greetings, Megan! I'm glad to hear that you had a good experience with this meditation. I enjoyed envisioning each color as I worked my way up each chakra. I found myself visualizing spirals of energy emanating from each chakra, each a different color of the rainbow, and then finally a vibrantly bright white light enveloping my being. How did you feel afterwards? I felt very similar to that of the 2 exercise: grounded, yet flowing with energy. Do you notice any change in your baby when you meditate?

    1. Hi Meghan, your visualization experience sounds awesome! I honestly did not feel as great after this one as I did with the unit 2 exercise, but I think that was because I got interrupted in the middle and that threw me off. I have actually been doing some research on the effects of meditation during pregnancy! My little boy is quite a mover but he always calms right down while I meditate and for a while afterwards. Although this time like I mentioned in my post he started kicking a lot when I jumped, so I think it startled him too! I don't know...maybe just a coincidence!
