Summon your patronus to assist you through difficult times.

lyrics

Sit in a comfortable position. Feel yourself supported by the floor, the chair, or the cushioning beneath you. Let your body sink into this support. Take a deep breath in through your nose and exhale through your mouth, letting the breath go with a sigh. Once more, breathe deeply, in through your nose, and exhale from your mouth with a sigh.

Now breathe normally, in and out through your nose. Notice the feel of your breath as it comes in and out. You may feel the coolness or the warmth of the air as it passes through your nostrils. You may feel the breath passing lightly over your lips as you exhale.


Expand your awareness to feel the air all around your face. Imagine the molecules of air shifting around you ever-so-slightly, creating a light tingling on your skin. Feel the tingling around your face, your scalp, the back of your head and down your neck. Now the tingling begins to spread, moving down your body so you feel the gentle sensation on your shoulders, chest, arms, and moving down your torso. It continues to spread and you feel the tingling on the skin of your stomach, thighs, legs, and feet. The feeling is subtle. The light prickle dances over your skin and heightens your senses. You feel a touch from your intuition and it whispers to you, "Ward yourself".

Your wand, as always, is close at hand. You grasp it and follow your instincts, raising the wand before you.
You draw on the tingling energy moving over your entire body and focus it into the tip of your wand. You see the glow of your wand growing steadily brighter as you feed it with more and more energy. When the energy reaches its peak, you stretch your wand arm in front of you and declare, "Expecto Patronum".

Your wand emits a shimmering blue light that swells and stretches before you. The light begins to take shape, forming into your animal spirit guardian. Visualize this creature as it emerges in front of you. For a moment your guardian remains connected to you through the tip of your wand, then its formation is complete, and it separates. The glowing animal circles around you, alert to any dangers.

You feel suddenly, and almost surprisingly relaxed as your guardian takes position in front of you. You are confident that you can focus on anything you need to accomplish today, knowing your spirit animal is there to ward off any negativity or distractions that come your way. Take a few moments now to appreciate these feelings of relaxation and confidence as you allow your guardian to do its job.


Remember that it was your energy and focus that set this protector in place. You can walk with this guardian spirit through the day, or call it forth whenever it is needed. If you feel anxious, frustrated, discouraged or fatigued during your day, call your protector forth to chase these emotions away. You will be refreshed and ready to place your attention where you want it to be.

Now it is time to bring your awareness back to the present moment. Visualize your patronus being pulled back into your wand until the blue glow has faded. Know that you can create these feelings of protection and confidence at any time. Hold on to this positive energy as you bring your attention to the feel of your body in this room. When you are ready, open your eyes.
