Today’s post contains a meditation to expand beyond fear into your own source of grace. You can use this meditation whenever you feel stressed or when the chaotic forces of global or personal transformation become challenging for you.
When we feel separate from our own source, we look for energy outside of ourselves; and if we feel we must fight for survival, or believe energy can be taken from us, then fear is the natural result. Fear is always a potential, but this is not the only potential we can choose. Grace is also there, waiting for permission to enter our lives.
In this meditation, we do not try to eliminate fear, for that just enhances the illusion of power and separateness. Instead we will bypass it, go beyond, and rest in a powerless place of grace to connect with our own source.
To enter this place, you will need to relax and expand your awareness beyond the reality reinforced by your five senses. This meditation invites you to set your stories down (your identity, your beliefs, your problems). You can pick them all up later, if you wish, but setting these aside allows you to open your focus, which is generally locked in like a laser beam on the issue of the day, and relax into the expansiveness of your pure conscious presence.
Your consciousness is much bigger than your limited human reality. It is the eternal and creative part of you. It is out of time and space. It is compassionate, accepting all things, all possibilities. As you open your focus to this level of complete acceptance, resistance melts away, and new possibilities become available. Acceptance makes grace possible, then energy starts to serve your consciousness in new ways.
I ask you now to feel into the energy of this meditation. How does your body respond? Your mind may panic a bit at the concept of surrendering its story, but your body is wise and will give you excellent information about what is right for you in any given moment. Do you feel your body constrict or open as you sense the potentials within this meditation?
Opening into grace is a game-changing choice. When we expand our awareness and realize the compassion of our soul, energy begins to flow and free us from our limitations. This means change, sometimes big change. Change is never comfortable, but to resist or micromanage the flow of grace once we’ve invited it creates suffering. Grace requires trust and allowing.
To enter our space of grace, it is imperative we release power, for as long as we are playing with power, grace will be invisible to us. When we reach a point where we desire grace above all else, we can no longer push our agenda or micromanage the results. We must receive and allow in total trust. Then life as we know it and all that motivates us will evolve. A new reality is born.
Please feel carefully into this meditation and honor your truth today. If you choose to invite grace, do it consciously, knowing you are activating energies that will change your life.
When you sense the time is right for you, please find a place that is quiet, where you can be still and close your eyes without disruption for at least 30 minutes.
Now…I invite you to go on a journey with me…
