I hope you had a happy New Year and joyous solstice celebration. I know it felt great for me to feel so many people around the world begin to create a human web of light on the solstice. May we keep feeding this web with our light whenever we think of it. Please remember that I invite you to formally connect with others with this same intention on each full moon.
What I am writing this month is similar to what I wrote on last monthís page with some subtle changes. Working with the subtle changes I outline below will allow you to go to a much deeper level with your experience.
As you begin to see the beauty in all things you might notice the indiscrepancies that come from being a spiritual being in a physical body. If we just perceive ourselves as physical bodies we are ruled by the biological need for survival. We find ourselves trying to keep ourselves safe, fed; we compete for money, space, territory, power, love, etc. When we focus our energy only in this direction most of us feel generally unfulfilled.
As we allow our awareness to incorporate that we are not just a body but also a spiritual being we see that throughout our day we constantly are being presented with choices of how to perceive our reality and what actions to take. Do we feed the spiritual side of life and ourselves or do we only feed the physical? To truly be on a spiritual path means we must also feed the spiritual aspect of ourselves.
The spiritual being (which we all are) is always perfect, always present, Is a true reflection of the divine, and is pure divinity. So theoretically it does not need to be fed as it is always in a divine state. But our connection to our divinity needs to be fed. This has always been the true purpose of prayer, which has been to establish and maintain a connection with the divine.
As I wrote in last monthís Transmutation News our illusion that we are separate from the source of all creation created our fall from grace. This same principle holds true for our disconnection from the divine part of us. We crave to feel and experience this connection again.
So as you go about your day bring your awareness to what part of yourself you are feeding. Are you only feeding the biological being that wants to be safe or are you also feeding your connection with your own divinity, which ultimately will lead you to feeling fulfilled? We are spirits in bodies and we must create balance with feeding all aspects of ourselves.
When you perceive that you are a spiritual being that sees the beauty in all things you feed the connection to your own divine spirit. The same is true when you tap into your own light and let it shine through you as have been practicing the last couple of months. Watch how at every minute of your day you are presented with a choice of how you perceive yourself, others around you, and life. Notice and observe what parts of yourself you choose to feed. Do you choose the part that fights for survival or the spiritual part that knows that all life is of the light? There needs to be balance. Are you feeding one more than the other? Keep a journal for this month so you can keep track of the feelings and experiences that you have as you shift your perception. Once again as you shift your perception your reality will change.
Visualize your body and spiritual being merging together as one. Recognize that the body with it all itís programs to survive is really a vehicle for your spiritual being. The body allows your spirit to manifest itself and have experiences in the physical world. The ego gives your spirit the experience of space and time.
We chose this great adventure of life on earth to give our true spiritual essence the opportunity to see, hear, feel, smell, taste, and move through the earth.
Letís remember we are not our bodies or emotions but rather that which has a sense of being, permanence and inner balance. We are pure consciousness in a body with an opportunity to experience this connection.
Using your intention, concentration, focus, and imagination visualize yourself merging your spiritual essence into your body experiencing the union, harmony, and love of this connection.
The above practice works to expand your perception and way of being in the world. We donít want to expand too much forgetting we are spiritual beings in bodies living on the earth. So to add to the expansive work letís also add to the work of healing the environment by establishing a strong relationship with the elements.
Everyday for the next month and hopefully longer take a few minutes to connect physically with the elements. When you wash your face connect with the water you are using. Take a breath and connect with air. As you go outside take some earth between your hands and rub it into your skin connecting with earth. Go inside yourself and feel your fire of life or connect with the sunís rays above you in the sky.
A thought to think about as we start a new year:
Your projections mold your reality.
