July 26, 2018
As we approach the Eclipse of July 2018, I can’t help but notice the flaring energies that are in my face and my body, assuring me that all is not well! With such distraction and uneasiness, it forced me to gain a stronger footing in what I know to be true – that I am connected to Source, I am protected and I am a force of good that can, with proper care, shine my light within and without.
In delving deeply within to untie this knot of anxiety, existential overwhelm, and fear, I came to see they are all connected to what society deems not ‘good enough’. Growing up and throughout life, the norms were always exclusive and I realized I was guilty of not fitting in, and not thinking I was good enough.
It is this guilt that judgment insinuates which makes us a target for fear. We are programmed to be the focus of society’s accusations – we are wrong, we are not good enough, we don’t have the right forms, we don’t fit in, we lost the game, etc.-and it begins from our innocence in childhood and continues on into our jaded self-defense posturing maturity. Within most people, is a silently held belief of being guilty of society’s accusations deep within us. If you were holding contraband and had to go to a customs inspection, you would be racked with fear. If you didn’t have that item, you’d have no fear when you were being questioned. So, similarly, when we are walking around with a programmed identity based on guilt, we are a target for living in fear. In order to realize we are GOOD enough when held up to our unique and sovereign connection to Source within, (which for each individual is the higher-self) I think the following analogy can help.
The analogy is one of likening our being to a large naval ship. Our body is the ship, the crew-our emotions, the captain is our higher-self or soul, and the first-mate- the mind/ego. The sonar and radar, are our guides and angels, the fuel and power (and filtration and plumbing) is our breath, and the anchor is our grounding. As we travel through life, the vast ocean with its various illusions, climates, and external pulls and influences is the Matrix or Society.
The ship is in present time, and so it actually never actually moves. The ports and sights are actually drawn to the ship instead.
As we navigate the journey of life, if the Captain and First-mate have a great relationship, the ship will be tight. If the first mate nurtures the crew (emotions), there will be no mutiny. If we stay steady, and cohesive in our internal functioning, breathing and grounding, and not being swayed by the illusions that take place off-ship, we will not be prone to jumping ship or an invasion of pirates (negative energy). By trusting the Captain and First-mate to plan the course (our mind working with the Higher-self for guidance and inspiration) we will draw to us the journey our Source inspires through the passion, mission and deepest fulfillment of our entire vessel (being).
Let it suffice to say that with this gateway of a new timeline coming into alignment, we are best suited to not be swayed by all the forces of the societal ‘sea’, but to stay on the deck of the ship in solidarity to the crew and Captain and allow the shores of a new world to be drawn to our self-sustaining Light. As we move forward taking time to unplug from our daily life and cultivate this on-board cohesiveness, (see prior post on Breathing as meditation) we will quickly manifest a way out of our dis-empowerment and join the ranks of other’s all doing the same. One by one changing the course of our collective timeline toward Love, the good of all and a sustainable future.
Finding downtime is essential and almost mandatory as the energies are ramping up! When it gets like this, which seems to be every other minute these days, I periodically allow myself to unplug from the pressure by taking a few minutes to reboot. This can be as simple as either sitting or lying quietly and starting to commence an unbroken-stream of deep breaths (diaphragm breathing- slow deep breaths to the count of eight or ten seconds out and in) to connect to my Higher self, which is just a matter of breathing and acknowledging It is present – silent but present. The Higher-self is really just the eternal ‘us’ that is watching over our growth and when directly engaged, has a unique way of communicating or conveying its presence.
When we tune into it by focusing our love, gratitude and appreciation towards its energetic presence as we deeply breath, its response will become apparent after a few minutes by how we feel and what begins to dawn on us. After ten minutes of non-stop deep-breathing, which is a form of meditation and prayer, things will actually begin righting themselves in the field around us as we begin to experience what it’s like to access the “other ninety percent” of our brains.
I will now go over ten advantages of breathing as meditation with steps to create a daily practice. If you are not sure what diaphragm breathing is or how to do it- a Google search should lead you to a tutorial. I will also explore the nature of our Soul and our society’s collective dream of survival and how we can use our meditation practice to awaken from it. By awakening to our light within, we can then create a fulfilling existence and share our unique gifts with the world at large. Now for the ten guiding talking points of the tutorial.
One, as we nourish the body with air in this specific way of breathing, we essentially invite the (invisible but tangible) energy of our Higher-self or our Soul to ground into our physical body in present time. This is due to the fact that the body is the only part of us that is always in present time. By focusing on deeply filling our diaphragm with air, we ground or anchor our Soul’s loving and aligning support into the powerful arena of the now. In reality, the Soul is the silent eternal field of potential and is ours to draw into the body with our breath and the attention and focus of an opened mind. Grounding the field in this way, in present time is the secret of empowerment.
Two, empowerment is what we exude from within when our mind is centered by the Soul’s presence being maintained in the body with every in-breath. Alternatively, when our mind’s awareness is focused in the past or future (which it is ninety percent of the time) and is not centered in present time our potential is trapped outside the body in a third-dimensional construct. Here, “spinning its wheels” in time gone by or time not yet in existence, and is not able to notice opportunities and miracles being brought into the field of the now. Opportunities and miracles are only offered to us when we are fully present and engaged in the body.
Three, as we inspire (inhale) deeply into the diaphragm, our enhanced awareness begins budding and blossoming with insights and realizations that hadn’t dawned on us before because we are actually being given access to information from our own eternal records or what is called the Akashic Library, within. It is very much like accessing the Internet by just breathing in our connection to the Soul.
Four, when we expand our body with the Soul’s energized frequency, specifically breathing it into areas that are stiff, in pain, concentrated with fear, etc., these symptoms will immediately begin to relax and release. You can easily create a healing meditation with this aspect alone. As you breathe in Love-Light, which is what your Higher-self is in energetic form, you can imagine your breath inflating any physical area or emotional tension, expanding it with healing Light and on the exhale, relaxing and letting go of any tension or illness you’re holding. You can even improve your state of mind by breathing in positive thoughts and releasing negative thinking on the exhale. It’s that easy.
Five, the essence of our Soul or Higher-self is Love itself. As love is eternal (outside of the constriction of time) and is fifth-dimensional by nature, we can raise our vibration and transcend time’s limiting trap as soon as we consciously invite the Soul’s presence in, and begin interacting with this eternal field by deeply infiltrating it into the body. We always have the power to change our timeline from negative to positive whenever we remember to breathe. When things start ‘going south’ while we are out and about, we have the power to charge situations to right themselves within a minute or two by starting to diaphragm-breathe and extending gratitude to your Soul for its presence. Working this principle of ushering your awareness of the eternal now into the body, no matter when you do it, will cause lower vibrations such as fear, doubt, limitations, depression, etc., to be overwhelmed by the higher frequency. The proof of this is that we begin to yawn after a few deep breaths. As we yawn, these energies unhook and are released out of our field within a few seconds.
Six, now we will look at what this meditation practice looks like and how it works. I find it works best by consistent daily practice. This can be as simple as finding a comfortable place to sit or lay down, relax and start diaphragm or “power-breathing”. This practice consists of two parts – one, that I call devotional breathing and two, manifesting miracles. Taking between ten to twenty minutes a day is all the time that is required. You can do this once in the morning or at night if preferred. This can also be done for shorter moments throughout your day if you need to center or re-boot! The first half of this practice, devotional meditation- consists of rhythmically sending mental “I love you” statements to your Soul with every deep breath. Committing to this establishes a partnership and trust with your Higher-self or Soul. The second half of the meditation, manifesting miracles, which I will describe below, ends your daily practice by partnering or co-creating with the Soul to manifest your dreams and passions. But first let’s look at establishing an understanding of the Soul, our connection to its power and love and finally how it can awaken within us the life we always knew was meant to be.
The Soul is an individualized aspect or ‘ember’ of the original creator, giving it the same abilities to provide us, under Its constant watch, with all we need. It must, however follow a Universal law of “non-interference”, as we (our minds) have free will to choose its help or not. The Soul cannot impose its guidance on us. So, it is up to us to seek out a relationship with it. If we seek its help, calling to it with our love, in daily “devotional meditation”, a bonding occurs. We begin to see that our Soul is truly the Parent and Partner we always wished we had, but never knew was there. With daily devotional practice, the courtship between our Soul’s energy and the mind’s attention intertwines and eventually merges, where the two become One. With each step closer towards this goal, the love grows stronger as you notice just how consistent the help from your Soul is. Developing this bond is very effective in lessening the fear of navigating life all on our own, against the Matrix (the power structure of society) and will give us an advantage if we wish to awaken from its hypnotizing dream. If we do, the collective dream serves as the riddle and obstacle that when challenged, perfects our ability to love and manifest our dreams.
Seven, the Matrix or society, is a challenging and hypnotizing third-dimensional environment designed to feed off of us until we awaken to our Soul within. The Matrix has been placed in our evolutionary path because its constant strain of adversity and limitation strengthens us, much like the way pressure on carbon creates a diamond. However, until we grow strong enough to awaken to our own divine capacity to Love (the diamond), which is the goal of our evolution, we live in its hypnotizing dream of struggle, based on the tenets of FEAR, LACK, COMPETITION and JUDGMENT.
The constant stress of negotiating these shared societal beliefs is what keeps us distracted and hypnotized. To make it even more difficult to awaken, there is a fail-safe program imbedded in our sub-conscious minds that keep us asleep by dialing down the amount of air we take in with every breath. Just as they say we only use ten percent of our brains, that could be said of lung capacity. When we choose to commit to deep-breaths, we can effectively break this spell and over-come the Matrix.
As mentioned before, the subconscious mind, when used in our decision-making process, draws its information from the same reservoir of fear, lack, judgment and competition which are the foundations of the Matrix itself. Therefore, until we break our addiction to its council and programed lack of air intake (that keeps us in a continually weakened state), we are in a stuck in a “survival-mode-loop”.
Choosing instead to partner with your Super-conscious – the Higher-self, will strengthen your divine capacity to house Source within the body, restoring you to your original creator-being status. That is because the lungs, when breathing at full capacity, ignites the ability to access and function in the infinite and eternal storehouse of all information, potential and Love. When we ‘power-breathe’ we are catapulted outside of the container of time (whose bars are created by the past and future) into the eternal now- where we are empowered and able to manifest our dreams. As said before, this is a way to free yourself from the life you were meant to awaken from, to a life you knew was always meant to be!
Eight, so changing your mind’s council from fear based advice – to Love based inspiration and manifestation is just a matter of choosing to break the mind’s habit of going to the subconscious to solve problems. When you choose to work with your Higher-self instead through breath, gratitude and intention, in the peaceful sanctuary of your daily meditation you access your power to create what you want. To begin, we access this power by observing two universal laws whose principles we will now examine to learn how to apply them in your daily practice.
The first law is the Law of Non-Interference – always ask for your Soul’s help in each situation – it is not allowed to impose its guidance on you.
The second law is When You ask, it is Given– you have the power to manifest your highest good with the help of the Higher-self. When you clearly ask for it, it is given.
Now, how to apply these Universal laws to manifest your passions and dreams is straight forward, simple and effective. To begin, start by quieting your mind, begin to deeply diaphragm-breathe, with gratitude and “I love you” statements for a few minutes (the first half of your ten to twenty-minute meditation) and then follow and finish with a few minutes of planning your day. This is simply asking your Soul, with gratitude and appreciation, for what you would like to happen during the day ahead, and specifically for the week or month, including how you’d like events to unfold. It can be as simple as, “I give thanks that the perfect solution to this problem presents itself.” or “I give thanks that the resolution is a win, win, for both of us.” Again, a Google search for making affirmations will help you perfect this form of prayer.
This practice of asking for what you want by affirmation and intention, at first might be new to you, but will become an essential daily opportunity of co-creating your deepest goals and desires. I ask for meetings to go well, opportunities to unfold, or whatever I’d like to draw to myself. The key to these laws is not to doubt, once you’ve asked. Doubt is in truth, a choice and is an act of free will. Remember, it is the only thing that can stop what you ask for from manifesting.
I just wanted to note that the Universal Law of When You Ask, it is Given – is describing how it functions in the miracle-realm of harmony and love- where we do not impose our will on others. This law’s potential misuse, however, is more the subject of self-interest and the power abuses of the Matrix). With that being said, here is a great prayer to invoke aloud, inspired from the teachings of Matt Kahn– to align to the Creator or this miracle realm of Love… “I call on the Highest Light- to flow through me, guiding my actions, informing all my choices, and coordinating all outcomes in perfect alignment with my heart’s most fulfilling desires, for the well-being and highest good of all.”
Nine, the following instructions will fine tune your practice of manifesting miracles: Make sure you ask for guidance or affirm your intentions a few days in a row (mainly to get it instilled in your own consciousness), describing what you need for each request, in the most thorough and concise way and then let it go. After affirming what you want or asking for help, you must wait for guidance or results to show up in the reality around you, in the following three ways;
- A sign, indicating a step or a direction to take. This can look like an outside message that only you could send to yourself or an outlandish synchronicity occurring that guides you in some direction. Sometimes it comes in the form of hearing the lyrics of a song, or reading a sign going by on a bus!
- An intuition indicating some form of action to take (the type of inner voice we often times hear clearly, but ignore and later regret). This can be a feeling, hearing an inner voice or knowing, or receiving a clear “hit” on a situation from within your gut.
- To be given the patience to wait for your request to occur without choosing to doubt, and it will be given to you (just like when you press the “buy now” button on Amazon and then know it will be arriving shortly). If it takes longer to obtain than you think it should, it is only accruing more to the end result which can take a bit longer, as long as you stay confident that it is coming.
After that, keenly attuned to look out for guidance in the above manner, just go about your life and witness the world around you morphing to produce opportunities and miracles. As you start to see the results of your efforts unfold, your confidence and practice will take on momentum and you will increasingly grow aware of the fabrications of the Matrix becoming less and less attractive. Always ask during your practice for clarity, guidance, abundance, emotional programs to be shown and resolved, etc. and you will begin to change your timeline to a world of love and fulfillment, manifesting miracles on a daily basis. When you master this practice and are wielding your Creator-being status it is like playing a wind-instrument with the precision of certainty, focusing on affirming the notes you desire with an infusion of air from your connection to Source within.
Ten, with this meditation practice, manifesting and awakening to a fulfilling life is the first order of business, but as that is achieved, a second advantage, expanding the mind to the vibration of the Soul, will appear within your grasp. The merging of mind and Soul is a daily practice of self-Love. In the beginning the mind seeks the Soul, but as we grow to realize the Higher-self is actually the immortal us, we can expand our orientation of Self and begin to comfort our battered emotional and mental self, with “I love you” statements, sending them back from our Soul downward towards the emotional and physical body. When out of balance, we can start to comfort our minds and hearts from above whenever we need it during the day.
This practice of developing the Soul/Mind connection establishes a path linking third, fourth and fifth dimensional awareness. Once established and functional, it produces emotional self-sufficiency. Relationships with others will therefore be more balanced by our being nurtured from within and grounded in our own center before reaching out. With practice and mastery, Self-Sovereignty will become ours because we are now aligned to our own Source, extending a bridge of Light outwards from within.
