“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. ” —Eleanor Roosevelt
Congratulations on completing the first week of our journey together! During this time, we have taken the important first steps toward initiating transformation by going within to connect with who it is we really are. Our awareness has expanded and we have opened to our authentic and divine nature. We have learned to honor our passions and long-held dreams while freeing ourselves from the limiting thoughts and beliefs that hold us back from the life we desire. We are now more open to our infinite potential, our destiny.
Today, we embark on a powerful journey designed to help us gently release our fears, clearing the way to greet each moment with a sense of strength, connection, wonder, and freedom. As we experience this special guided meditation, we encourage you to connect with your True Self and the deep understanding of your abiding relationship with the infinite.
Our centering thought for today is:
“I am free.”
Our Sanskrit Mantra for today is:
“So Hum.”I am.
As you prepare for today’s meditation, take a moment to become conscious of your breath, inhaling and exhaling slowly and deeply. Begin to imagine the breath as a tool for cleansing and letting go of all that is not serving you in the moment—a tool which allows you to gently observe the state of your body, mind, and spirit. Conscious breathing is a simple technique to transform and release feelings of fear, anxiety, and tension as you come into the present moment. Give yourself permission to relax into your breath as you begin to enter more deeply into stillness.
What are you most afraid of? What is holding you back?
We all have fears. It is part of being human.
When we acknowledge these fears by asking the question, we take away their power, and are then able to pluck them like weeds and allow them to compost to then grow into beautiful flowers.
As Deepak told us today, “Some of the most spectacular sights to take in are not found on the road most traveled. In fact, they may require preparation, the clearing of the path both figuratively and literally. And for some of the most coveted pristine views, those thought of as heaven here on earth, the trusted support of a wise guide to lead the way. What motivates some to take such a challenge? Does the witnessing of nature offer the great regard of special insight? Or is it the process of having an idea that is so intriguing, there is a willingness to do whatever it takes to make it happen? Maybe it is the experience of an epic quest, a story to tell complete with view and victory. A memory so vivid it lasts a lifetime.”
The journey of the fool in the tarot, or the seeker’s quest goes deep in our own inner mythologies. And always, ALWAYS, the seeker has a series of challenges that test his/her fear and courage to persevere. Oftentimes a nature spirit, guardian, or even a fairy godmother comes along to help nudge us in the right direction that is aligned with our higher self.
“From vision to victorious completion, this is a trek that quite possibly reveals the very strength and potential that lies within.”
I invite you to realize and take such a journey. Is not the destiny you seek to find during [your daily spiritual practice] actually your unique and inherent heaven on earth? Deepak says, “now is the time to open to the treasure that lies within your soul, your dharma.”
Let’s travel there… together.
