“He who has health has hope and he who has hope has everything.“ – Arabian Proverb
Hello Spiritual Warriors!! Welcome to the last week in May. Can you believe how quickly the year is unfolding? Over the past five months, we have all encountered new challenges & triumphs…surprises & aha! moments…celebrations & heartaches. This is the wild roller coaster of life – ever changing, ever unfolding, ever uncertain. As each day comes to a close, we may find ourselves seeking healing – healing of our minds, healing of our bodies, and healing of our souls. Sometimes, we can benefit from outside help such as when we are diagnosed – and need the help of a medical professional, or when we find ourselves in grief and can benefit from a therapist. But there’s additional support that can come from within – deep within – from your most genuine self – which is pure and perfect and whole and enlightened. Which knows no separation from source – only knows love, compassion, forgiveness, and light – it only knows wholeness and sees all things as ONE.
Awakening your inner healer & cultivating your innate healing powers starts with a shift in how you see the world. Ask yourself, “ Are you this separate distinct entity or are you an integrated piece of the universe?”
You know the answer. If we can –just for a moment- surrender to the primal fact that we began this existence as one with the universe, we can make a profound shift in our body & our mind.
Throughout our lives we have distanced ourselves from the whole by resisting, protecting, pushing back, guarding, defending, preventing, and stopping.
But we could – just as easily – allow, receive, and accept that this moment and all our moments are perfect exactly as they are. If we are willing to do this, then we can move to a mindset of The Healer where the universe is supporting us not attacking us.
If we can connect and know at our core level that we are indeed worthy, and brilliant, and intuitive, and deserving of love & happiness, then we can connect to the part of us that can soothe, nourish, and heal our wounds – our emotional ones and then our physical ones.
There is a beautiful phrase in Sanskrit, yata pinde tat brahmande – as is the cosmic body, so is the personal body; as is the cosmic mind, so is the personal mind.
So when you find yourself in a situation where you see you self as separate – remind your self that this is an illusion that you have bought into – there is nothing separate from you – everything around you and within you is God wearing a different disguise. The words from someone that sadden you…your interpretation that someone is out to get you…the cells in your body that have forgotten they are one with the universe… your fear that someone will say or do something or that what you said or did was a horrible mistake…all illusions and meaningless in the divine scheme of things.
When you find yourself stuck in that sinking thinking – you need to RE-BOOT. Connect to a few moments of stillness & silence – use 16 seconds to bliss. Then remind yourself that it serves no one. Out loud say, “I am whole. I am safe. I am loved. I am the universe.”
Then whisper it, “I am whole. I am safe. I am loved. I am the universe.”
Then repeat it to yourself silently, “I am whole. I am safe. I am loved. I am the universe.”
Breathe in – feel the divine cosmic breath of god flow into you – feel it ripple through every cell in your body – stay in that space as you fill what is empty. And then as you exhale, empty the fullness of what does not nourish you.
Breathe in and:
Fill your tender heart with self-compassion & unconditional love
Fill your mind with nourishing images and the power to move forward
Fill your body with pure healing energy that ripples through every cell
And allow the universe to sweetly kiss your soul – merging you with timeless oneness.
And breathe out and:
Empty you body of its toxicity
Empty your heart of its sadness
Empty your mind of its darkness
If you will give yourself permission to practice this exercise every day at 10, 2, & 6 – the natural times of Ayurveda, you will begin flowing with the universe. It will integrate itself into every cell in your body. You will cleanse your very BEing of that which no longer serves you. And you will fuel yourself with strength, courage, love, and grace. You will awaken your inner healer. Keep trusting & keep meditating. Aham brahmasmi baby! peace. –davidji
