What’s My Mission?

If you’re moving along a spiritual path, you’ve likely wondered, “What’s my mission?” I was kind of obsessed with this question. Like, for years. I wanted all the details. What is it? What will it look like? Where will it take me? Who will be there? I had so many questions… and got increasingly frustrated as time passed without receiving any answers.

But I’ve come to realize that my mission isn’t about doing, but about being. I let go of the questions, and instead opened up to the feel of my mission. And it came to me that compassion and joy are my mission. And this doesn’t necessarily mean doing any particular activity – though acts of joy and compassion are wonderful – it’s really about being joyful and compassionate in each moment.

This isn’t easy. I’m human. I have fears and judgments. I make mistakes. But each new moment is a reset – I have the opportunity to realign with the essence of compassion and joy over and over again, all day, every day. This starts with positive, loving feelings toward myself and my body, and spreads from there.

So instead of asking what your mission is, try calming your mind and opening to the feel of your mission. The answer may be simpler than you think.

Spirit Team Meeting

light reach

The veil is thin this time of year. My latest meditation, Spirit Team Meeting, helps you reach out to your spiritual support team in order to open to their guidance and give them thanks. Your “spirit team” is unique to you, and can include angels, archangels, ascended masters, spirit guides, loved ones in spirit – even such creatures as fairies and dragons! It’s all about what works for you.

You can find this guided meditation here or on iTunes. Have a beautiful autumn!

Clearing your field

Before I meditate – or any time I feel the need to clear my energy field – I do this quick process.

  1. Close my eyes and take a deep breath or two.
  2. Envision my energy reaching down to connect with Gaia’s energy (while saying or thinking the word “connected”).
  3. Envision my energy reaching up to connect with the universal/divine energy (while repeating the word “connected”).
  4. Feel myself surrounded by my own energy and that of my spirit team (while saying “surrounded”).
  5. Feel myself protected by my higher self – the part of me that has the bigger picture and can therefore guide me (while saying “protected”).

Try it with me. Take a deep breath or two. Let your body release the tension we tend to carry. Say or think:

Connected (picture your energy connecting with Gaia).

Connected (picture your energy connecting with the universe).

Surrounded (feel yourself surrounded by your own energy and that of your spirit team).

And protected (feel yourself supported by your own higher self).

Doesn’t that feel great? It takes less than a minute, but has a big impact – grounding, clarifying, and empowering you.

Tap the Resources of the Universe

It’s back to school time, so let’s go to Space College!

My son came up with the phrase “space college” to describe the concept of learning from the universe through meditation. I like the term, so I’m borrowing it from him. This guided meditation will help you connect with the educational resources of the universe in order to aid your intuitive development. You can find it here or on iTunes. Enjoy!

Letting Go of Fear

One of my kids is learning to drive. He doesn’t like it much, and didn’t drive at all for a while. (That’s okay with me. I don’t push my kids to comply with societal expectations.) Today, he got back on the road. He did fine, but felt scared. And then felt dumb for being scared. And then said something that moved me – “I guess it’s not dumb. I have a right to have fear. I just don’t need to have fear.”

We humans have a right to feel fear, along with all the other emotions. But we don’t need to carry our fears around forever. Recognizing and honoring our fears can help us to release them. That way, they no longer hold us back.

So how do you release a fear? My go-to method is tapping. Here’s a super simple process:

  1. Gently tap on any of the tapping points (see image below).
  2. Say “I release my fear of (whatever scares you).” Repeat this as many times as you’d like.
  3. Stop tapping and take a deep breath.
  4. Release the breath while letting go of the fear.
  5. Repeat the process as needed until you feel the fear start to loosen its hold on you.

If you give this a try, let me know how it works for you!

Releasing Expectations (of others)

If I could
Maybe I’d give you my world
How can I
When you won’t take it from me

~ Lindsey Buckingham

We have ideas of how people should be – everyone, but especially those we’re close to. They should do this, they should let us do that, they should give this, they should accept that.

What if we released all those shoulds? What if we stopped trying to change them and just allowed them to be who they are? And if who they are doesn’t align with who we are, let them go their own way?

Relating to people out of love and truth, and not out of image or obligation – wouldn’t this be lovely?

We’re all connected. If we give each other the freedom to be who we truly are, humanity might just start to heal.

Crystal Cave Meditation

I love to meditate with crystals! With my newest meditation, you can begin to connect with the power of crystals by visualizing a visit to a crystal cave.
