My new meditation incorporates a gentle process for releasing any fear, concern, or unease that holds you back.
This is an excellent way to do shadow work, something I’ve been doing quite a lot of these past few months.
I have something for you to try, if you’d like.
Sit comfortably. Close your eyes. Take a few slow, deep breaths.
Let your human concerns slide away. This isn’t always easy, but well worth the effort.
Know that you are safe within your own energetic frequency.
Now open to your Divine Inner Guidance. Allow it to take you wherever it will. Don’t rush it. Let it unfold naturally.
Once your experience feels complete, slowly bring yourself back to your physical body.
Quarantine has given me some surprising gifts. Among them: clarity about my mission. I’m here to be a “light anchor.” I’m a conduit for higher energies to connect with this world. As part of this mission, I’ve spent a good bit of time meditating. I consciously and intentionally fill my being with love, bliss, and gratitude. I do so to raise my own frequency and bring clarity to my “channel.”
But this doesn’t mean I shun my human side. After all, I’m here on this planet to be a human. Being human does, indeed, involve the emotions of love, bliss, and gratitude. But it also involves the “dark” feelings. Here’s what I’ve been learning: if those darker emotions rise up, pushing them back down does absolutely no good. They will simply sit inside me and fester. So instead, as they arise, I’ve been examining them. This isn’t comfortable, and may involve tears, but that’s part of the process. If needed, I seek help from others – those with whom I feel completely safe. By processing and integrating my own darkness, I become stronger. I become more complete. I become who I am meant to be.
I believe that there is a light inside every human. But sometimes, the darkness overtakes the light… and they lose their way.
Right now, in this moment, all humans are united in thinking about the same thing – the virus. We’re more consciously connected than ever before in human history. Now is the time to take that connected consciousness and turn it from fear to love. When we do that, the old divisions will crumble and we will step more fully into the new earth.
Ultimately, the darkness is no match for the light. So keep shining your lights, my friends. Keep pumping kindness and compassion into the world. Keep replacing fear with love. Do this not from a place of self-sacrifice, but from a place of heart-centered empowerment. In the end, goodness will prevail.
Our lives are full of emotions and experiences, some good and others not so good. We tend to focus on the not-so-good. We dredge up pain from the past, we fret over the future. But there’s SO MUCH GOOD in life. What if we spent more time focusing on that?
Try this. Find a place to sit quietly, close your eyes, and focus on one good thing in your life. Just one. It doesn’t have to be big; sometimes the little things are the sweetest. Really feel the goodness of that one thing. Let that good feeling sink into your bones. Let it swirl through your body. Feel it lift you up. Now, don’t you feel better?
It only takes a few minutes, but focusing on the good, giving it room to grow, can turn your day around. It might even turn your life around.
The blue rose doesn’t exist in nature, and is therefore a symbol of mystery. During this meditation, we visualize a blue rose as a way to connect with life’s mysteries… and open to answers from the universe. Before starting this process, hold one or more questions in your mind. Your question may have to do with the mysteries of life, or could be something of a more everyday nature. The choice is yours.
The world seems like it’s going crazy. Watch the news or scroll through social media and it’s easy to let disbelief and despair take hold of you. But I believe, at our core, humankind is essentially good. I believe that, under all the layers of wounding and societal programming, there is a spark of pure goodness in each human heart. This may sound like naiveté, but I prefer to call it faith.
I’m acting on this faith. Starting this Wednesday, January 15th at 7pm Eastern, I’ll hold a weekly Virtual Healing Circle to promote love and kindness in our world. This won’t be held in a classroom or other venue. There will be no registration, check-in, or fee. Each Wednesday around 7pm, you can join from anywhere in the world, wherever you happen to be at that time. Simply ground yourself, quiet your mind as best you can, and hold yourself in a state of love. You can remain in this state for as little as a few moments, or for as long as you’d like. While in this state, let yourself feel the inherent goodness of humankind, the true essence of who we are beneath the layers of dissonance. Let the love in your heart grow, surround you, and connect you with others who seek to heal the world. Together, we can do this!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
With love, Heather
