How are you today? Are you well happy and fulfilled? Are you finding edges and areas of self you were not so aware of previously? Are you managing to keep your mind and emotions on an even keel with the continuing social distancing regulations that are in place?
I have been feeling rather raw these past few days, so relying a lot on the practices that I turn to in times of personal stress. Namely, yoga nidra, meditation, walks in nature, listening to the whispers of my heart, reaching out to loved ones, eating well, journaling and practising deep self-compassion.
And importantly coming back to connection, to feel and celebrate my spiritual connection. To come back home to myself.
I had a lovely, and rather tearful video chat with my eldest son and daughter-in-law today, it was just what I needed, to be witnessed in the emotions I was experiencing and to let it all pour out. It was such a gift to be held so lovingly.
I am so grateful.
Do you have people in your life that you can do that with too?
I find that by creating some time each day where I can be alone, quiet and undisturbed, really supports me in being present with my emotions, energetic fluctuations and needs. I can, in this space, feel and hear my needs more clearly away from the clamouring of life, work and other demands.
If we create the time to become still within, if we are able to let loose the egoic tendency to rush in and talk, then we may just create the space to listen, to listen deeply to the voice of God, to the voice of wisdom, the whisper of intuition flowing through us in peace-giving ways.
It helps to surrender and let go of any sense and belief in separation, so that I may release ego and join wholeheartedly with Divine Universal Consciousness.
“Sink deep into the peace that waits for you beyond the frantic, riotous thoughts and sights and sounds of an insane world.”
- A Course in Miracles
The lesson today from the Course is this: God’s voice speaks to me although the day.
The voice of the One Mind, Infinite Intelligence, of God is speaking to us always, but we have forgotten. We cover up these whispers of the soul with business, chaos, and by being shut off form the magic and beauty of life here on earth. We sometimes forget that we are spiritual and magnificent beings.
It can be quite a process to slow down, enter the zone and hear the voice of God within.
If we may open to the voice of the divine within us, then we must become aware of the voice that we use. Are we speaking the words of connection, love, unity, the voice of God, or are we using the voice of ego, fear and separation?
As we affirm the truth that we are the physical manifestation of divine energy, when we know and declare that the same Power that created the Universe created us also. Let us speak this truth, let us declare that we perfectly manifest of divine truth.
As we speak it is so.
The universe is always, without fail saying yes to us in every moment. It hears us and responds with a YES. EVERY TIME.
Let us, then, be clearer in how we command consciousness, so that we are speaking, feeling and energising what we actually want in our lives.
Here is a lovely practice for you:
Get comfortable and begin long slow deep breathing. In through the nose, and gently out of the mouth.
Look around you and say …
I know that nothing in this room is solid – everything is pure energy.
I choose to release all form and open myself to feel the vibration of love that is within and all around me.
I let go of any ideas of separation.
I know that I AM pure love.
I ask divine love to heal every cell in my body.
I ask that my eyes see love, my heart feels love, my mind perceives love, my voice speaks of love, and my touch gives love.
There is only love; I ask to become a higher source of love.
Feel your heart opening as you completely melt into the vibration of pure love.
Now gently close your eyes.
With this awareness of our inter-connection with all life, our individuated consciousness, our collective consciousness and our cosmic consciousness, let us speak into being the things we are most grateful for.
Speaking out loud now, from the heart, name three things you are most grateful for right now.
Speaking into existence that which you now desire to experience in your life, absolutely knowing you are powerful and connected to Source.
No matter how grand, simple or implausible it may seem … our dreams are the whispers of our soul, and unique to us.
Stating your desire clearly and simply, see it, feel it, taste it, smell it, believe it.
I am so grateful and thankful that this shows up in my life.
I am so grateful and thankful that it shows up in my life now.
I am so grateful and thankful that all my needs fulfilled.
I am so grateful that I experience peace, love and joy.
I am so grateful and thankful that all the answers I need, show up in my life now as the whispers of God through me.
I am so grateful and thankful for me being me.
I am so grateful and thankful for all the good that is coming into my life.
Take a beautiful big breath in, shake yourself out and open your eyes.
Take any notes in your journal now, any insights, any areas you wish to explore further.
You don’t have an edge or an end to you, you are an infinite being, living within an infinite universe of infinite potential.
When we recognising this oneness, we can go into the infinite space of connection and change every negative belief, putting in place positive changes.
From this space of connected oneness, we may ask anything and be shown the answers in a multitude of ways, as intuitive prompts and serendipitous occurrences as the voice of God speaks through us.
May this serve you well.
I would love to know how you get on, so pleased do practice and then send me a message.
With love for you.
