Meditation Brings Creator’s Gift

February 10, 2009 · Filed Under Higher Consciousness · Comment 

Meditation is a wonderful practice for quieting the mind and going within oneself to the place of stillness or silence. This is a place where clarity and answers can be found. It is a place where one reconnects with his or her true and authentic self, the Divine within. Some refer to this place as the soul, true essence, higher consciousness and true self. Other names are used as well. Where is it found? It is best described as found within the heart space and connected to one’s third eye, or sixth chakra, and the crown, or seventh chakra, and beyond the physical body. In truth, the connection comes from the Universal Life Force God/Creator/Spirit/Source, or whatever name you give It. The names are many. It still remains a mystery.

As I finished meditating, in stillness, the other morning I was told that Creator had a gift for me. I was pleasantly surprised and my curiosity was immediately engaged. It was suggested that when I walked my dog after the meditation that I ask Creator, “What gift do you have for me?”

So my journey began. I felt that before I asked for the gift I would take a moment and reflect on my surroundings and acknowledge my gratitude for life in that moment. As I stepped outdoors I thanked Mother Earth, Father Sky, Grandfather Sun and Grandmother Moon for all that they do to sustain and support life on this planet. I thanked Creator for life, health, abundance, prosperity, love, forgiveness, compassion, harmony, choice, awareness, remembering, for my family and friends and for my loving and loyal companion, my dog, Tassy.

I breathed in the breath of life of God/Creator as I walked and offered gratitude for the path supporting me, the symphony of the birds singing, the hummingbirds occasionally stopping in a tree to affirm us in joy, nature family surrounding us with beauty and perfection. The trees and plants coming out of dormancy and having first blushes of color were beautiful. How can one not believe in something bigger than us when such perfection and beauty abound? I was humbled and in awe, once again, of this beauty and perfection and grateful to be present in that moment of JOY! To be continued…

How Powerful Are You?

October 20, 2008 · Filed Under Self-Healing · Comment 

POWER and POWERFUL, these are words for you to contemplate and incorporate in your daily meditation. Let’s see how Webster’s dictionary describes POWER. It is an “ability to act or produce an effect; possession of control, authority, or influence over others”. POWERFUL is defined as “having great power, prestige, or influence”. For our discussion let’s think of POWER as having an “ability to act or produce an effect”.

When you see or hear these words what FEELINGS do you experience. Are they easy words for you to use when you talk about yourself? Look at them again and notice what is going on with your body. Feel the emotions that emerge. What are you thinking right now? Do you feel that you have the ability to act or produce an effect? It doesn’t really matter right now what that effect is, rather focus on whether you feel that you can do it. Can you? If you answer yes to this question then please begin to think of yourself as having POWER and being a POWERFUL being for if it is nothing more than creating changes in what you believe, think, say or do, you are acting to produce an effect, are you not? You are changing you, this is the effect!

The truth is that for great change to occur outwardly in the environment first change must occur in your inner being-what you think, feel, say, believe or do. This is where ALLOWING, ACCEPTING AND OWNING the POWER you are begins. It is your choice to make. How badly do you wish for great leaders in our country to be elected? How badly do you want the systems and structures to change? How much are you willing to change for this to happen? Are you ready to accept responsibility for what you are creating? Are you ready to receive the blessings that can flow your way without limitations? Are you ready to accept that there is a higher POWER or CONSCIOUSNESS that supports you? Are you ready to BE the POWERFUL SPIRITUAL BEING THAT YOU ARE RIGHT NOW? If your answer is yes then know that it is time to RECLAIM YOUR POWER-reclaim the truth and wisdom that is available to you in each moment.

Know that you are POWERFUL spiritual beings having wonderful human experiences and it is time to wake up. It is time to return to the truth of who you are. It is time to embrace and love yourself, forgive yourself and be compassionate with yourself for then you can BE this for others. This is when true self healing, spiritual healing, change and transformation can take place. It doesn’t matter whether you are a rock star, politician, stay at home mom or dad, student, shut in, homeless or wealthy person, or just a kid having fun. We are all part of the whole connected by something greater. It is time to remember who we are. Start with you then reach out to others. As you change, others around you will benefit. Focus on what brings your heart JOY and listen to your heart as you make your choices. Acknowledge and accept the POWER that YOU are. This is a choice you can make!
