What a beautiful weekend here in the Midwest! The sun is shining and we have blue skies and spring temperatures... highly unusual for February and a gift that I receive with pleasure. The world feels wide open in this moment, like we are all taking a big breath of fresh air after the chaotic start to this year!
As 2016 ended, I recorded a meditation that I titled Outrageous Abundance. In the 20 minute visualization, I described the shifts I saw coming in the new year... illusionary walls coming down to reveal the crystal perfection of Truth inside of the old stories, beliefs, and structures we have held to be true in life.
Last week on the Viben meditation call, the same visual came up, but this time in the form of a see-through membrane that has us attached energetically to Life, to Source energy, much like the umbilical cord attaches to the amniotic sac as human life is created in the womb. In the meditation, we played with what it could feel like to dissolve that membrane and allow space to stand up and be fully engaged with Life without any separation.
The message feels consistent... Life offers us a wide open range of experiences in every moment, and it is our choice to engage fully or to stay a little separate and safe in our cocoons. And neither is wrong! But the choice is always ours.
What I would offer today is an invitation to explore the idea that inside that cocoon or those walls is the Crystal Perfection of You - Truth - Love.
What do I mean by this?
Crystal - "Clear, transparent, see-through; or a mineral that is generally made of transparent quartz in a shape of cubic symmetry; or a glass that is clear, colorless and of high quality."
A crystal is clear, reflecting pure light. And the stories and walls that we put around ourselves to stay safe, included, loved, and valued by those in our lives can block that pure light.
What if we slowly dismantle those barriers and allow ourselves to be more and more transparent?
This might feel like a scary question, but what I know to be true is that each Soul inherently is Love. Always. Each of us comes from the same original Breath of Life, from the same Source energy that is God or One. So how could you be anything but Love at your core?
The walls and barriers we build up are the illusion that prevent us and others from seeing our own beauty. So maybe we explore our willingness to start dissolving the protective layers to find the Love that sits deep inside each of us.
I find for myself that the quiet meditation time I spend keeps bringing me into awareness of the walls and layers I have held in place for most of my life. And I am slowly letting go of them, one by one, to find more of my own clarity and light. Becoming more transparent, so that I can be a clearer conduit for energy and Love to flow through me and out into our world. And it feels FUN! :)
Of course, as this internal process is unfolding, I felt guided to reach out to a local healer and crystal expert, Gene Jackson, to ask him to chat with me for this week's Healing Our Souls episode. He generously spent an hour sharing stories from his journey as The Crystal Guy and gave me a tour of his and his wife, Barb's, Cincinnati crystal showroom. What an inspiring and fun time we spent together!
If you are looking for guidance on how to even feel your energetic walls and stories or how to identify your own inner crystal perfection, come join us for the weekly Viben meditations on Sundays.
I recently was scanning through a few O Magazines and was reminded of how Oprah ends each issue with her column of "What I Know for Sure."
Today (and all days!), I Know for Sure that Life is Good and it is ALL simply Love.
