March 9, 2011—Matthew Victor Lawrence Dodd Day


Today we come together to focus all of our attention on Matthew Victor Lawrence Dodd who passed on March 9, 2010.


Dear Prayer Giver,

Take a moment, wherever you are, to sit down for a minute and to bring your focus into this sacred present moment. Slowly take a deep breath and slowly let it out, breathing in deeply and exhaling fully.  And again, inhaling slowly and exhaling fully.


Now read these words and think them clearly: Dear Matthew, We The Prayer Team, are with you in thought and spirit. We send you energy and love at all levels and we pray that you will feel it and know how very loved you are.


Meditation/Visualization: —continue to sit comfortably and allow yourself to be here in the present moment, letting go of your cares and worries of the day.


Now, bring all of your attention to the tip of your nose and imagine that you are the gatekeeper at the gates of a big city and that it is your very important job to watch the coming and the going of your breath.  Simply focus all your concentration at the tip of your nose and observe your breath as it enters and leaves you.


As you breathe-in, focus on the feeling of the breath as it enters your nostrils

As you breathe-out, focus on the feeling of the breath as it leaves your nostrils

Breathing-in feel the breath coming into you

Breathing-out feel the breath as it leaves you


Continue to focus on your breathing

If your mind wanders away off into thought, gently bring your focus back to the tip of your nose and resume your position as gatekeeper and watch the coming and going of your breath.


As you breathe-in feel the cool air as it enters your nostrils

As you breathe-out feel the warm air as it leaves your nostrils

Breathing-in cool, breathing-out warm

Breathing-in cool, breathing-out warm


Now as you breathe-in, envision Matthew

standing in the light before you

As you breathe-out, envision Matthew right in front of you, looking vibrant and well


As you inhale, envision drawing energy into you

As you exhale envision directing that energy to Matthew

As you inhale continue to visualize energy entering into you.

As you exhale see this energy flowing outward from you and surrounding Matthew

Bathing him in light and loving energy

See Matt surrounded by energy

See Matt smiling

See Matt laughing

See Matt playing his guitar


As you breathe-in feel that you are strengthened by this energy

As you breathe-out direct this feeling of strength to Matthew’s family

As you breathe-in draw peace into yourself

As you exhale send that feeling of peace to Matthew’s family


Dear Matthew, we see you smiling and glowing in the light. May you know that LOVE, the one universal sustaining force, is being sent to you now and always will be. May you feel it and know that love is without end. You will always be loved and you will always be remembered.  Rock on dearest Matthew! Your music lights up the heavens. We love you, The Prayer Team.

    Sending love and light to Matt Dodd’s family. I hold you in my thoughts and prayers today and I hope that you receive messages of comfort that will help you work through your loss and pain.
    In the words of Dr Emerson; It is not length of life, but depth of life. Matt was a beautiful talented boy – I’m sure he had a depth of life.
