Explore Potential Changes

free meditationIf you’re considering a significant change in your life, here is an exercise from spiritual teacher Dick Sutphen that has benefited me greatly over the years. It can assist you in deeply exploring the situation and motivating yourself to take action where it’s of benefit.

Set about 20 minutes aside, and begin by getting yourself in a relaxed, meditative state. Have the intention of connecting with your Higher Self, and answer the following questions, jotting down anything that comes to mind without censoring yourself:

  • To change is to risk, and behind every risk, is a fear of loss of love, loss of control, loss of material possessions, or loss of self-esteem. Which fear applies to the change you are considering?
  • What is the clear purpose of your desire?
  • Often people do not pursue changes until the fear of doing so, is exceeded by the pain of not doing so. How does this relate to your situation? Explore the potential pain of making the change, opposed to continuing to live your life exactly as it is.
  • If you are keeping one foot in the safety zone, refusing to move forward into this change, what do you need to do to make it alright with yourself to act, to take the risk?
  • What is the worst that could happen if you go ahead and make this change, and it does not work out?
  • What is the best that could happen if you go ahead and make the change, and it works out wonderfully?
  • Is the potential loss greater than the potential gain?
  • Who else would like to see you make this change?
  • Who would prefer you did not make this change?
  • If you’re afraid in regard to making this change, what is holding you back?
  • If you make this change, will it result in a more honest and freer life?
  • If you make this change, could it improve the quality of your life?
  • Take a few moments to visualize this change, if everything works out as best as can be.
  • Is this what you want to happen…yes or no?
  • If you do want to make this change in your life, it’s time to call out to the positive powers of the Universe and ask for their assistance in manifesting this change in your life. Commit to acting. You can’t grow without taking chances. And if you’ve decided to make this change in your life, don’t sit back and wait for the perfect moment to act, as it almost never comes. Commit to acting immediately.

Every day is a fresh opportunity to begin again and create the changes our hearts desire.

With love,
Kerri McCutcheon

Blissful Meditation

inner vitality and blissI share this simple and beautiful meditation from A Woman’s Book of Meditation, by Hari Kaur Khalsa. It is described as a “meditation for love without attachment, for kindness, forgiveness, sweetness, and knowing that God is within you”. That sure sounds like bliss to me…and by the way, guys will enjoy it too!

Getting Started:
• Have someone read the meditation to you or record it into a tape recorder to play back to yourself
• If it’s comfortable, sit in Sukhasana (a.k.a. Easy Pose: Sit cross-legged with a straight spine. You can add a blanket under your seat to relieve any pressure)
• Place your left hand in Gyan Mudra (touch the tip of your index finger to the tip of your thumb) & rest your left wrist on your left knee
• Cover your right nostril with your right thumb & breathe deeply thru your left nostril
• Concentrate at the top of your head

Meditation*

After this day, if I have had any negativity toward any soul, consciously or unconsciously, I now forgive and I am kind to the whole universe. I am I am and I am a kind being. I am I am I am a beautiful being, a great being, a truthful being.

Kindness and love. I am filled with it. That is what I am. All love, all kindness, all love, all sweetness, all sweetness, all smiles. I am I am.

I came to go. I go to come. I am a free being. I don’t want any attachments. Attachments will make me heavy. I want to be light. I am I am I am very light, light, light, lighther than a feather, lighter than a rose petal, lighter than anything in this room, lightest of light, lighter than light, completely light.

I am living truth. I am living reality. God is within me. Let me go within and see God. God is in me and let me go within and see God. God the creator, the Creator of the universe. That is what I am. I am pure, pure, pure manifestation of God.

Coming Back:
• Now inhale, exhale & relax

Our True Self

Heart-centredness & Unity
know your true self and inner vitalityThe next stage of our journey is about witnessing even more of our true self and a sense of becoming more at home in our own skin. We are realizing too that the skin is not a barrier of who we are, as we become aware of our soul connection with all consciousness.

You may even be feeling your energy body expanding, as more of your love and light fills to the brim of your physical barrier, and sense even more consciously how far your energy radiates out from there at all times.

When there’s a conscious connection with our heart and the intention to radiate that energy outwards, we will experience even more unity with all that is within and surrounds us. It is an interesting sense of filling the inner and also extending into the outer. Notice how it is always a unity of these two things, and at the same time there is no duality!

Cosmic Consciousness
In times when there wasn’t the realization that the world was as big as it was, the reality of being globally united was true, as people didn’t sense themselves as separate from anyone else. They knew also that they were aligned with the stars, the Earth, and part of the universe. They knew that as much as they revered the stars and the universe, they also were sacred creatures.

As I write this message, I reflect on a journal entry I made one summer in which a native elder had come to me in a dream which exemplified this concept:

My beloved teacher came to me smiling like the sun…I noticed she WAS the sun setting on gentle waves on the beachy shore. She was also part of the air, the most gentle of breezes. Later she visited the Dog Star Sirius…and eventually became the rushing wind, signalling the rain showers which followed on my tent….

What a gift she gave in teaching the truth of our multidimensionality and connection with the elements.

Guided Visualization

You may wish to see yourself as a dove or riding the wings of a bird…a beautiful graceful bird that knows exactly where it needs to go, knows itself to be in the flow, and knows itself to be a creature that can flow through life. It is able to rise above Earthly concerns and it sees things from a view of perspective. It also can sweep down to the Earth when it is time for nourishment. It rides between the worlds, and that is what is required of us at this time ~ not to be up solely in the spiritual world, and not to be solely chained to 3D reality, but to recognize ALL of self.

Imagine standing tall, being rooted to the Earth and stretching hugely upwards into the skies. See yourself as that person standing both on the Earth and who has their head also in the Heavens, for that is YOU.
