Hold onto your heart as your central mechanism for being, thinking, feeling, and knowing. Though your head may seek dominance, ask it to kindly bow out so that what lies in your heart may be more clearly heard. To be heart centered is to be in alignment with the truth and to be in alignment with the truth is the purpose of all of life. And the heart knows this purpose above all else. Let it reveal to you what it knows. Get heart centered once again.
My observation, over many years, is that each day brings its own wave of energy that manifests and reflects at different levels of intensity in all beings. In my therapy practice, the theme of my first encounter of the day is very often the theme presented by many clients that day. Even the words used to describe experiences similarly resonate throughout the day.
Personally, I notice that my encounters in dreaming from the prior night, as well as the books I open to in the morning, or Jan’s hot off the press channeling, already announce the contours of that energy wave as it splashes upon the doorstep of oncoming time. Worry issues forth from anticipation and manifests in concerned projections upon possible outcomes of the impact of that wave.
The fact is that that daily energetic wave will run through all of us. The fact is that somewhere in the world that wave may crest in a fatality today. This will be a major transitional moment for someone. We all have that ultimate appointment with death, but we needn’t treat all moments of life in human form with the adrenaline rush of Russian roulette.
Yes, when a person leaves my home, setting off on a long drive, anything might happen beyond the security of the departing moment. My intent is always that all will be safe. My experience teaches me that if something could or should be known it will reveal itself, inwardly or outwardly, in direct terms. If nothing is directly revealed, all will either flow smoothly or it will be someone’s destiny to encounter a rougher wave. Worry, however futile, offers to step in, to somehow fill the void of unknowing, to somehow protect.
Worry presents as the great conjurer of many a possible story. Worry scoops up the lion’s share of our energy, which it then formats into a speculative reality that our bodies are then forced to live, biochemically, as the playing field for its virtual fantasy. We experience this as stress, anxiety, fear, and dread. Our muscles clench, our breathing becomes shallow and infrequent. Our eyes become dazed and glazed, as they turn inward to view some variation of the conjurer’s horror show.
Perhaps hours later, the text arrives: “We are home safe”. Now we can relax, all is well. But what if instead we send them off with loving safe intent and refuse the conjurer’s call to worry? This is the beginning of a shamanic journey.
Without worry, we are ushered into a vast emptiness, filled with cascades of available energy. The psychic structures that worry generates, which typically populate every nook and cranny of life, suddenly evaporate, and we are delivered to the void, where all of those usual conjurings of the worrying mind slip away.
Do I look OK? Did I eat the right thing? Is my weight noticeable? Is it my fault? Is he angry at me? Did I look foolish? Is she OK? Will I meet the right person? Are they angry with me? Is everyone safe? Is it going to work out for them? Should I have done more? What if something happens? Am I good enough? Am I too old? Am I losing it? Did I make a mistake? What if I lose my job? Did I turn off the stove? Will I ever be good enough? …………..?…………..?…………….?…………..?
In the vast emptiness of no worry we enter inner silence. Tension in the body releases as the breath expands. We experience deepening relaxation, perhaps for the first time, at a level so free we may fear its expansiveness. Worry immediately offers its services once again, to create tense boundaries around ourselves. Refuse that call! Stay with the mantra: no worry.
Retrieve and bathe in the boundless energy previously expended on the stories and structures of worry. Make that energy available for new possibilities of life and fulfillment. Protect that energy with a no worry wall that encases your being. I am a being of no worry.
Make no worry a succinct command from consciousness to the subconscious, that part of the soul that automatically controls our attitudes and habits. State it often, as a firm clear intent: Don’t worry. Know that the instruction is heard and that the repetition of it will result in its manifestation. Do not attach to when, nor be discouraged. Simply persevere in stating the intent.
Be as one rather than divided. Be as one within the self as well as within nature. As you breathe, imagine yourself as the air entering you and as you exhale imagine yourself entering the world around you in peaceful loving spirit breath. In spirit you exist as energy and that energy can be anywhere and do anything at any time. Allow your spirit energy its freedom in every breath you take, breathing loving kindness within and without. Be as one in your spirit breath and be at peace knowing that you are a part of it all, mixing in the Great Universe with all other spirit beings of like mindedness, creating a new Greater Universe of peace and loving kindness for all in every breath you take. Just breathe.
Today’s audio channeling is probably best listened to when you can be relaxed and calm, or when you need a five minute respite from the busy world. So take a few minutes for yourself when you have a chance, and then remember the message: Breathe, just breathe.
Have a beautiful week. The power of calmness lies within your own body. Take advantage of it. Breathe.
Be at peace in knowing that this time too shall pass. But this time, do not let it pass without learning something meaningful. Do not let it pass as just another day unlived. Live it to the fullest, with awareness that you are choosing to be fully present, fully anchored, fully trusting, and fully open. Live today with eyes wide open, with heart wide open, and with giving of many kindnesses. Let today be different.
