Right now we are still in transition. A time of many changes, on both the personal and global level. It is a time to breathe deeply, be still, meditate and find our connection with the magic and wonder of Life. It is also a time to consider what needs to be let go of and what feeds our Soul.
It is a time to nurture The Self. Tocome into communion with The Self. There are many ways to cultivate Self Love. I Highly Recommend including the following in your repertoire : 1) Inner Child work 2) Creating Ceremony to Release, or Ceremony to start a new habit or path or transition 3) Meditation 4) Journaling.
For Connecting with your Inner Child, I have found the following works well: Sit with your Inner Child, of different ages, and talk to these parts, but mostly listen and allow those parts to speak, to be heard. If they choose to not speak, then sit in silence with them. Show up for your Inner Child, every day, by connecting and listening.
An exercise that really helped me at a very low point, was to get a roll of Kraft paper, pull out a very large piece and tape it to the wall, floor to ceiling. I then invited my Inner Child to just doodle, draw, color, every day for a week. You can of course opt for regular drawing paper or canvas paper and paint. I had a box of markers and crayons nearby. I would start by sitting quietly, making sure to turn my attention inward, into the Garden of my Heart, and send the invitation. Some days a whole lot of doodleing happened and other days not much, or maybe just to color in yesterday’s doodle. It is all good! The important thing is to not judge anything that comes out. Just show up every day for this. Before long, the whole page is covered.
Then I spend another week just sitting in front of this and looking at what symbols and connections between things, are there. Just looking intently….don’t skip this part, because observing while doodling is different from sitting back and observing. This is an exercise I would recommend doing every few months.
In between, I would still sit with the Inner Child, but instead, have a journal handy, and ask your Inner Child a question every day and allow the answer to flow through writing. Again, do not judge. What the question is, will be your choice. You may even simply ask “What do you want to do today” or “for the next two hours”…..and then go do that!
If and When Big Issues come up, as they are bound to, ask your Adult Self, the following Questions:
1) what is this behavior or belief? How did it serve me in the past? ……. 2) How does it serve me now?……. 3) Is it still needful? ………. 4) Does this serve me in cultivating my Highest Potential?
It may be Time to let things go, break a habit, create a new healthy habit, explore new horizons.
The best way to begin this, is with ceremony. Ceremony speaks to our unconscious brain and allows us to really focus on what this transition is all about. It assist us to step from one place to another, more smoothly.
* *find a piece of wood….any kind, could be driftwood, or a wood shape bought at a Craft Store, or an old piece that used to be part of something else.* *Decorate this wood piece, through writing on it, collage, paint, adhering metal shapes or beads or wrapping with yarn or twine. * *incorporate Nature into the ceremony, by going outside with Your created piece. **You may wish to speak a poem or sing, chant, play a drum. **Call on Spirit Guides, your Higher Self, The Angels, to witness. **You may then choose to bury it in the earth or toss it into a body of water. If you choose to burn it, please adhere to fire safety and only use an actual fire pit. **You may also incorporate incense, candles, or anoint yourself with aspecial oil.
Touch Stone: To assist a new habit, choose a special crystal or stone that you can carry in your pocket and rub a thumb over, during the day, as a reminder. Hold the stone between your hands and speak your intention out loud, into the stone, asking it to assist you to remember your intention throughout the day, expressing Grattitude for its help.
Journal! I would recommend journaling every day, to record your emotions, struggles, triumphs, and gratitudes…..what your reflections have shown you and what your process is.
The basic idea here is to become more in touch with your self, to really get to know yourself, without judgement, and to reflect upon what will cultivate your Highest Potential.
Affirmations: *”My Heart is Open to receive the energy of Love”……. **”I Radiate the essence of Compassion”…… **”I walk my path with Ease and Grace”
To Re-Boot and Upgrade! To transition into a Higher Frequency of Living, with ease and grace! To be ready to manifest your greatest dreams! May Blessings Abound!

Also included each month, will be a special crystal and incense for you to enjoy! This month’s Theme is Transformation, Connecting with your “Butterfly Essence”!!!
Weaving our Light together now. We are JupiterFox. We sense confusion and the illusion of loss around human understanding of “Oneness”. Seek to listen with the whole Being. Listen through the Heart of The Soul, more than just the mind of who you are in this 3D world. Words are not enough to achieve understanding. It is an illusion that you will loose your “self”. This is not how it is. Each particle of Light is Amazing and Alive in and of itself! This Beauty does not “end” or go away! We offer a familiar example to further understanding: That of a Tapestry. A huge, magnificent, glorious tapestry! The tapestry is filled with detailed and intricate imagery of all manner of Beings and patterns of togetherness. Yet this beautiful tapestry is created by single threads who come together to create this. Each thread is composed of unique colors, shades, textures, patterns, encoded with wisdom and love. The thread does not lose its uniqueness but rather, contributes it’s uniqueness to the tapestry. The thread may choose where and how it will weave itself or may choose to not weave itself. The tapestry will change based on what the thread chooses. It is a Living, Breathing Tapestry that is constantly changing in its aliveness. Each thread will maintain it’s unique set of patterns. We speak of course of each Soul as a “thread” of Light. Your Soul is unique, and encoded with its own patterns of wisdom and love. Breathe deeply now and release all fear of loss, for each and every unique signature of Light is celebrated and honored! What incredible Beauty is created, with all of these weavings of Light!
Let All Particles of Light come together and create! We are Light. We are Love. We weave together. We honor you.
Deep within, our Soul knows, we must shatter the great glass ceiling of mirrors, prisms, lenses, of our delusions.
If we can but melt back, into the flow of Time before Time, to conception and beyond, back to the moment that Creation became Aware, to the very birth of Creation itself- then the dense ideals we thought we were, become undone.
Shedding the heavy robes of forgetfulness, shedding wounds that were never real. Unbecoming that which we became, out of fear and lack of understanding, of our own Divinity.
Back where we can Become Again, The Majestic Beings of Light, Creators of Brilliant Tapestries and Symphonies, composing at last, The Great Opus of The Ages, like the Master Artists that we are.
Transformation is a process.
“Be” with your process as it’s happening. Allow for the unraveling, the messiness, the unknowing, and trust the process. Let the new ingredients come together and marinate for however long it takes. In Stillness, you will be restored.
This is a turning inwards process. Deep within you and nowhere else.
It requires listening to the deeper self and to the silence. Listening from the Heart. And the more you listen, in Stillness, the more you begin to hear.
Circumventing the ego, the small you, stepping out into the vastness of The Universe of The Soul. The ego mind wishes to discover Reality, but at the moment of letting go, you step out into something much much larger, into a vast expanse of deep mystery.
As you step through the Gateway Portal of your Heart, you will open to the Crystalline webbing linking Heaven and Earth, through which rainbow rivers of Light flow, and the Soul becomes free to explore what it means to Co-Create, Free to Merge with The Mind of God, conceiving of things not yet in existence, with no limitations, for you cannot shut the windows of the sky, as there are none.
Journey Onward! Deep Within, Deep Without, All Around, Spiraling In, Spiraling Out, All of Life, This We Are: Infinite Sacredness.
Trauma gets held not only in our physical body, but also in our emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Any trauma has multiple layers to it, and often multiple issues. Thinking that you are done dealing with something after only one or two moments or sessions of therapy, is unrealistic.
We are complex Beings with many complex issues that can be buried deeply or remain dormant for ages or even for lifetimes.
Healing requires Time, willingness to sit with difficult feelings, the courage to keep your heart open, to look with compassion at the self, and others, and learning that forgiveness is about you being able to let go of the pain.
Still, the pain needs to be looked at and sat with, for as long as it takes or for as many times as it needs, in order to be completely dissolved into the Light. Each time that we make progress, we do so for the whole human race, not just for ourselves. Knowing that, adds an incentive. But do it for yourself first. You are worth it.
Sometimes we don’t realize how much trauma gets held in the physical body, or in our energy bodies. Today I realized that I am afraid to drive. The accident was two months ago and I didn’t sustain any great injuries. However, I realized today, that I have not gone anywhere, except for the grocery store, for two months. I used to drive to a nearby park almost every day, to walk around the lake there. Yet I have been loathe to leave my apartment for two months. So I sat with the Fear today. And then I drove to the park. But I know there is still residual fear that I will have to continue to acknowledge and dissolve with love. I also realized my arm pain from the accident has triggered another muscle memory to re-surface. I say re-surface because I did face this memory in my 20’s with a therapist and I had thought that it was gone and done with.
So I had to sit with this old memory again today. A muscle memory. From when I was 5 yrs old. I will share a bit of my story, for two reasons 1) so you can understand how much I know about the process of healing and 2) because sometimes it is helpful to the healing process to feel heard and seen, to let things out and not keep them buried under shame and unworthiness.
My arm goes physically numb when I recall my 5 yr old self, raising her arm to block the blow of the belt that her adopted father was wielding in anger. Anger at me for not lying. For not putting on a smile and telling my birth grandmother that I was happy. For not saying “good-bye” to her. I knew who she was, even though they did not tell me. I found out at a much older age, that my birth grandmother had handled my whole adoption. But my 5 yr old self knew without a doubt that she was my relation, my blood. I could feel the connection so strongly. And so, I could not bring myself to pretend to be happy, or to say “good-bye”. For which my enraged father made sure to make me suffer. My whole arm went numb, as it blocked the first blow. I don’t need to say that it was only the first of many blows or that it was only one of many beatings, do I? Or perhaps I do need to say it. I rarely speak of such things.
I realized today, that the issues from that experience and many others like it, go much deeper. I uncovered a connecting Issue. That every time I refused to pretend, refused to hide my authentic self, I was beat down for it. I refused to be squashed into a very small box. And as I look around at so many women I know or have known, I recognize that same theme in their experiences. Not just from fathers, but also from husbands, lovers and even tragically from other women who have been indoctrinated into a societal norm that oppresses, devalues, and dehumanizes women. My own adopted mother was damaged by this and in turn heaped emotional and physical abuse upon me, to the point that when my father told her he had sexually molested me (I was 6 yrs old) in the car, on the way to get ice cream, she actually blamed me. She screamed at me and slammed my head repeatedly into the wall. I felt her betrayal much more deeply than anything else I have ever suffered.
Here is where Keeping Your Heart Open becomes important.
If I want to not only heal, but learn what Love is, I need to also learn how to understand and forgive. That is necessary to keeping your heart open.
I also keep my heart open for myself. To Love myself. So today, I thanked my younger self, for refusing to be squashed, for refusing to hide. I have cried for each and every time that my body suffered pain and trauma and I have praised my body and spirit for being resilient, for being such an amazing Holy Temple, for my Beautiful Soul, whose Light can never be squashed. In my mind’s eye, I held all the younger versions of me, for all the times she endured fists, belts, head slams, or kicks, especially the kick that fractured her tailbone, which took 3 yrs to heal. And for the sexual abuse, which has taken a lifetime to even look squarely at – trauma which caused an ovarian tumor. Yet here I am. I have chosen to be here, to look at my authentic self and love her. To learn to keep my heart open, so I can look at the deep pain that my abusers must have been in, and have compassion for them, for they didn’t fully understand that their own delusions and shadows controlled them. I swore when I was young that I would not grow up to be like them. Which means I must have the courage to keep my heart open.
I have learned that I am worth it. I have learned to see myself through the eyes of compassion, the eyes of my heart. I recently came across a school photo of me from 8th grade. I had forgotten about this one, so it was like seeing myself for the first time. And I truely saw, this beautiful soul that I was. I realized that I was not this horrible sinful “bad seed” that I was made to feel like, back then.
I have learned that being willing to open my heart, allows for the opportunity to experience true Love, to realize that Love is the fabric of the Universe, and the fabric of my Soul. In order to be my authentic self, I must realize that my Soul, is Love itself. I am Love Itself.
I admit I am an over achiever. Most people I know are. This is a fast paced world in many respects, but is that what we really want? Or need?
I knew how to go slow when I was a child. I think most children are much more in touch with the natural way of Being. I relished in hanging upside down from trees, in building stick Forts and stone chairs in the woods, and I especially relished floating on the water.
So what happened? My parents were taught by their parents who were taught by their parents, to never be idle. There was constant work to be done even during the summer months, even when on “vacation” in the Catskills mountains. My father believed in being up at 6 am and had the entire day filled with constant activities or work or educational learning. Now that can be a good thing, but there should be some sort of balance with time to rest, to leisurely explore. With him their never was.
Case in point, from a vivid memory I have, of swimming in the Scoharie Creek. I was always floating or slowly swimming underwater because I loved the feel of the water on my skin and the muffled sounds under the water. My father would become very irate with me for doing this. He would demand that I “swim” laps, and would not leave me be, until I had swum at least 20 laps most vigorously, in Free Style, then Breast Stroke, then Back Stroke, then Side Stroke, no dawdling or resting in between. Mind you, I was not on any swim team, and this was summer. I most vividly remember thinking “I just want to float!” And yes, I did choose to become a Lifeguard at 15 and then a Water Safety Instructor and Pool Director at 17, which absolutely gave me purpose and meaning in Life. But I stopped floating.
So that was just the “way” of things. Constant doing, doing, doing, and always striving for more, better, higher, next, next, next. It becomes ingrained in us.
Rest? Completely foreign concept. With the exceptions of when I was very sick, or after surgery or after an accident. I actually did have “Cronic fatigue Syndrome” in my late 20’s that flattened me and allowed for a Space of Spiritual Turning Inward. Thus began my Spiritual Seeking in a very deep way. Would I have done that if I had not been forced to slow down? Probably not.
Recent times have shown all of us around the globe, that when we have the time and space for Reflection and Beauty and Rest, we feel a deeper appreciation for Life. We begin to ask ourselves What can be done differently? Is this “thing” really necessary? How can we bring more Balance and Harmony into our Lives? Do I really need to rush here and there? Am I making room for connection with my Soul? What is essential and what is not?
I have recently started a new chapter in my Life, having just retired from public education. Someone suggested to me that I should not jump into anything new for a couple of years. That I should just have a couple of “lazy summers”. My initial response was of shock and horror at the thought, LOL. Do Nothing? For Two Years? Insanity. Madness. Then after a few minutes of realizing that I have not been very good at “rest” most of my life, I realized the wisdom in this. Still, after a lifetime of doing, doing, doing, I am not quite sure how to actually do nothing. I did of course slow down during our nation’s time of quarantine and that definitely felt very very good.
So here is what I realized. Maybe I don’t have to “do nothing” All of The Time, but leave room, space, opportunities for “doing nothing”, at least much more often than not. Whew, ok, that I can handle!
So I am beginning by reclaiming and honoring that child part of me who loved to float on the water, and just listen to the faint clink clink of rocks gently moving in the current, feeling the gentle caress of water against her cheeks, and making mud paint at the edge of the creek, by rubbing multi hued pebbles with water. I will Honor her, by learning to float again.
The level of compassion we have for ourselves is the same that we will have for others.
In order to sit down at the table and really listen to others, we need to first do the hard work of looking at what parts of ourself still need to be held with Compassion and Kindness. This requires honesty and courage……to not gloss over or stuff emotions, to not belittle or disregard our past needs that were not met, to not deny that we had expectations, to really examine what Beliefs lie under our assumptions or our hurt feelings. Yes, Courage, Beautiful Ones, is needed, but you are not in this alone. No one is. We all have a Spirit Team ready and waiting.
Call in your favorite Angel or Ascended Master, your own Higher Self/Soul, your “Spirit Team”. Call them into your Heart Space. See this Heart Space as either a Crystalline Temple or a Beautiful Garden, and Invite the Spirit Team in, to sit with you. Ask for their Love , Support and Guidance with this Process. Remember that it is a Process, and not just a One Time deal.
As things come up, look with gentle eyes. See with the eyes of The Heart. Be kind and gentle with yourself and embrace the parts of you that need to feel Love. Ask your Spirit Team to surround these parts and hold, embrace, sing to, wrap in rainbows of Light, these parts. And ask for all negative emotions to be lifted away, within bubbles of Pink Light, by the Angels, up to The Heart of God.
You may even ask for a member of your Spirit Team to continue to walk with you, through out your day, to provide comfort and upliftment. I did this myself, a long time ago, actually more than once, and it has provided a great measure of comfort. The first time, it was Jesus/Yeshua who came and sat down at a picnic table with me, in the Garden of my Heart. Though He did not speak, he looked me square in the eyes, with a Depth of Compassion that is indescribable, and when I asked if He would hold my hand, as I walked through Life, to lend me His courage and support, He reached across the table and grabbed hold of both of my hands. Many times in my life, perhaps when I needed the reminder most, I would “see” with my inner eye, Him, walking beside me, holding my hand. It brings tears to my eyes every time, even now as I type this!
The Angels too, Glorious, Wonderful Angels! Call on them, and often, as they Truly Love to Assist you! Angels are Guardians of Hope and Wonder, the Keepers of Magic and Dreams. Angels watch over you wherever you go, ready to help out when you remember to ask. Angels carry High Beam Lights to help you through the darkest hours. They can help you to carry the ball, carry a tune, carry your weight away, carry your grief away, up to The Heart of God, and support you to carry on! Angels are with you every step of the way and help you soar with Grace. Your own personal Guardian Angel, especially, knows you inside and out, Loves you deeply and sees the Beauty of your Soul.
Remember that you are not alone. Remember to call upon your Spirit Team always, for they hear and respond. Beautiful Ones, Go Now, and Ask.
Death is such a powerful catalyst for all of us. Whether we expect it or it sneaks up on us. Whether it be watching a loved one slowly dying, or the sudden loss of a friend, or the tragic and senseless death of someone we didn’t know, but that causes us to be horrified and quickened to the core of our being. It touches us deeply.
This life is so fleeting, so quick to fly by, it makes my head spin. Like all of you, I too have experienced the grief and loss that death brings, each with its own lessons of fragility. One in particular, happened when I was in my 20’s and working as a Lifeguard and Waterfront Director, at a summer camp. It happened one day, on my day off, during a transition period from one camp group to the next, that a small group of teens who were staying over, decided to sneak off without their Counselor, to the creek, even though they had been told it was off limits. It had rained heavily, the creek was high and the under currents strong, from many under water caves. Sadly, one boy was not strong enough to survive the currents. He was 14. It was such a deep shock for everyone. It was a week before the divers found his body. Every day I would go to a secluded spot by that creek and sit there, listening to the water, in awe of its raw power, of its beauty, and contemplated the fragility of Life. That experience and others, gave me a deeper reverence for the sacredness of Life, something that I have always held in my heart.
Perhaps the whole point of Death, is so that we learn to value Life. So that we learn to appreciate each breath that we take, each sunrise, each smile, each Extra-Ordinary Person we meet, each season on this beautiful Earth.
I don’t have all the answers. I am here just like everyone else, trying to find meaning and beauty in this experience. I can say, that I have learned a lot, about myself, about the sacredness of existence, about how to love and honor all parts of myself, even though I still have so much to learn. I have discovered that there is much to celebrate and be thankful for. I have discovered that each Soul I meet, is a reflection of both God and Myself. I have discovered that every experience is an opportunity for my Soul to grow. I have discovered that Death teaches us to face Illusions, to look at what we value, to ask ourselves deep and soulful questions:
-Am I living my Life to it’s fullest depth and breadth? -Am I Honoring the Sacredness of Life itself? – Do I have the courage to be my Authentic Self, to move through the processes of grieving, healing, and forgiveness, not just of others, but also of myself? – How do I stand here and be in my own Worth? – How do I do better? – Do I have enough Faith, that if I choose Love often enough, my Outer World will come to reflect that?
*How can We, as Humanity, come together and Co-Create, a World of Peace, Honoring the Sacredness of All, Celebrating the Diversity of God, as reflected in each other, and holding a deeper Reverence for All that exists.
What would it be like, if everyone’s life experience was that of being safe, being valued, being respected? What if everyone as a child, was encouraged to grow into their sovereignty?
“The Art of Intentional Dreaming” is about holding a Vision in your Heart, believing in it, feeding it your intention and attention until it becomes a manifested reality.
Let us, as a collective, co-create a Vision of what it would look like, what it would feel like, to walk around on The Earth, experiencing Peace and Harmony, experiencing every Human Being as a Sacred Expression of God. Experiencing every living creature, plant, mineral, the very earth Herself, as a Sacred Expression of God.
Let us sit with that Vision, every day, holding it clearly in our Hearts. Let us Visualize walking around in a landscape of such incredible Diverse Beauty, greeting everyone and everything we see with Tremendous Joy welling up from the depths of our Being. Let us see Beams of Love flowing from our Heart and from everyone else’s Heart, swirling, spiraling multicolored light, dancing around, in and through us all. Let us Breath In that Light! Feel how incredibly Magical this is! Do you see it? Do you feel it?
We can “feed” that Vision by creating stories that reflect it, by creating beautiful works of Art that show how that looks, by creating music and dance that shows how that feels, by having conversations with others, that reflects that, as a desired reality that we actively cultivate, through every relationship, through making changes in communities so as to better reflect that reality. In everything that we do, say and think, we reflect that reality. We choose not to place attention on anything that does not reflect that reality. What we focus on becomes our reality.
Hold that Vision in your Heart, knowing that it is the Deepest truth of our Divine Presence and that Divine Presence can and will manifest through us, as long as we hold that Vision, as long as we feed it, cultivate it, breath into it. Sitting in meditation, Breath your Breath of Life into it. The Breath of the Divine, of God, flows through All, as long as we don’t stop it. As we Breath, God will Breath through us, if we Open our Hearts and Allow.
Mystics of all cultures and traditions since time immemorial have experienced profound connection to something larger than themselves.
Please understand that I am not promoting any particular “religion” here. There is a distinct difference between “religion” and Spirituality. Religions are man made institutions filled with rules and doctrines meant to impose a particular viewpoint or interpretation of agreed upon “sacred’ texts. Participants are expected to live by these rules or be judged harshly. This is not Spirituality. Spirituality is about an individual’s journey of connection to Source and his/her/their own Soul’s expansion and growth, without interference from others.
Now, that being said, certainly there have been “Mystics” who practiced within a particular religion. Mystics are those who experience in a direct and sometimes ecstatic way, that Divine Connection to their Source/Universal Consciousness/Higher Self. Sometimes there are Practices within a religion, that will enhance one’s ability to go Deep within and connect with that Divine Essence. Practices such as Meditation, Singing, Chanting, Dancing, Playing Music,Affirmations, Painting, Prayer etc. These are “Practices” or methods, that people from all traditions have had great success with.
As I have mentioned before, I had much experience with these practices, even as a child. I was brought up within a very Evangelical background, and though I do not ascribe to most of their “doctrines” they did do a lot of singing, meditation and prayer practices. And again, I do not always agree with their brand of worship, but I did find certain songs or the act of being in meditation, to be practices that catapulted me into ecstatic communion with God or an Angel or Yeshua or Mother Mary. I learned a certain Openness to these experiences that was supported or accepted.
But getting back to Mystical Experiences. Besides being Open to these experiences, it is also important to not have expectations for it, because that will create anxiety or limiting beliefs about what should happen. It is best to just blissfully want nothing more than to commune with God or Nature, and to express your Gratitude for all that is. That will keep you within that childlike state of Openness and Wonder.
Have you ever watched a little child play outside? or remember what it was like? They can wander around, finding things to be excited about, every inch of the way, can chase after a butterfly with complete abandon, suddenly come across a puddle, and change gears, jumping in it and finding new things to discover. They might not have a set destination or goal in mind, or if they do, it easily set aside for a new experience.
If you are familiar with the words of Yeshua/Jesus, “the Kingdom of Heaven is within”? And “unless you be like a little child, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven”? These words are about being able to Connect/Commune to God/Source/Heaven, within your own Heart and Soul. To not only have Faith that it is possible, but also to be childlike in your Openness to discover and allow the experience to be whatever it may be.
So, For many reasons, I was very much Open to these Mystical experiences growing up and as an adult decided to continue cultivating these practices and experiences. I did choose to look into other “religions” to see what Practices they kept and what wisdom might have been found. I discovered the same practices within all. There have been those who experience Mystical Connection to The Divine in every culture and tradition, who may explain their experiences in different words than I would use, but the Key Wisdoms and Essence of God were the same.
Here is a moving experience I had, “connecting” with the Divine feminine Essence of Compassion, that some traditions call Quan Yin. I was meditating by a small garden fountain and pool of water with intriguing rock formations, that is a stopping point along a path to a Buddhist Temple. I was new to this place and was very much enjoying the tranquility. I decided to offering gratitude to the Divine Feminine Aspect of God, in the form of Quan Yin. As I sat with eyes closed, my Inner Eye suddenly activated and I “saw” Bright Fuschia Sparkles descending from the Temple above, to where I was seated. I felt an Amazing Motherly and Compassionate Presence move all around me as if embracing me. It uplifted my Spirit tremendously, and it was such a deeply moving experience to feel held in that Love and it was beyond any earthly human experience I had ever had. It was incredibly profound, moving me to tears, to know that such Compassionate Love existed.
I have connected to that very same Divine Essence many times through out my life. I have adopted a practice of chanting “Om Mani Padme Hum”, which often will bring about connection to that Presence. Another great experience was when I picked up my first book on the subject of Reiki, an energy healing modality that calls upon the Essence of God to flow through the hands in a specific manner to facilitate healing. As I picked up that first book and opened to a random page, my eyes fell upon the name Quan Yin (as God’s Essence of Compassion) and I spoke it out loud. Immediately, my throat chakra started vibrating exponentially, and opened widely. It was a very physical sensation that startled me and I dropped the book. I had never heard of Reiki before that day but I knew I needed to study that! I studied through three levels of Usui Reiki and then had to wait 6 months before starting to study Karuna Reiki, which works directly with the energy and Presence of Quan Yin, but it was all so worth it! My connection to Quan Yin deepened the quality of my Faith as well as Opening me up to even more Beautiful experiences with The Presence of God in its various qualities and aspects.
Everything that exists is an expression of God. All humans are an expression of God. All of Nature is an expression of God. God created All of it. The various “forms” or “expressions” of God that exist are as individual and unique as snowflakes are, as grains of sand are, as we are. Therefore, everyone’s experience of “God” will be different. So let us have no expectations and let us not judge another person’s experiences, as we would hope to not be judged. Let us All be Open to every conceivable and inconceivable, Beautifully Majestic and Infinite Experience of God.
