Happy Monday, spiritual warriors! Welcome to this week’s edition of The Source.
From day to day, month to month and year to year we encounter new challenges, triumphs, surprises, aha! moments, celebrations and heartaches.
It’s the wild roller coaster of life!!! It’s ever changing, unfolding, uncertain, and even adversarial.
But, adversity can be the seed of REbirth. Pain can be a powerful motivator. Sometimes in the wake of a tragedy, trauma, or unexpected disappointment, we can dig deep—deeper than we ever imagined—and step beyond our preconceived limitations. Our capacity to rebound after we’ve been dealt a blow is called resilience. And those who embrace their sacred powers and practice healing modalities seem to recover more quickly.
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.
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.
If you’re finding yourself stuck in that sinking thinking – you just might need to RE-BOOT with me at the Meditation Nest! In October, I’m hosting an Awakening Your Inner Healer 4-day retreat in the Sweetspot of the Universe, Carlsbad, California.
This powerful immersion might be for you if you’re READY TO embark on a journey to your best version – to awaken your Sacred Powers of transformation and reach a place of new beginnings, expansive joy, freedom from the past, and deep fulfillment; transformation of darkness into light, the sublime into the practical, and the cosmic into the personal!
Give yourself permission for some serious self-care and spend a weekend healing, building your inner strength and courage, and cleanse your very BEing of that which no longer serves you.
Send me an email if you want to further explore if this retreat is for you. In the meantime, keep meditating, keep dying to the past and surrendering to the present moment. I’ll see you in the GAP.
