The source of the universe is big enough to embrace all of you – the good, the bad and the ugly!
Read all the steps and notes below before starting this meditation.
Get comfortable and completely relax remaining as still as you can. Notice your body breathing as if for the first time.
Don’t be concerned if your mind is racing or thinking of this or that – let it – just choose to focus on your breathing for now
Regardless of the activity in your mind, dedicate the next five minutes to allowing yourself to experience whatever comes up for you whether it’s thoughts, feelings, visions or emotions.
Set a timer for 5 minutes (choose a gentle alarm!) and start when you are comfortable and ready.
Allow everything, no matter how negative or positive; they are all merely ‘forms’ that belong in the manifest realm – they come and they go yet they are ALL vital for you to experience. Nothing is wrong or shouldn’t be. There are no mistakes. You are never ‘doing it wrong’ – there’s just what is!
Without engaging in any effort nor with any striving, simply choose to experience that unconditional oneness with your source and look deeply with curiosity at whatever your experience is in this present moment.
Notice yourself bathed in the unconditional love of your source – a love without ANY conditions attached!
Notice the eyes of compassion and grace as you look – not with the ‘little me’ eyes with its conditions and judgements but seeing through the eyes of your unconditional source.
Discomfort is your doorway into present moment awareness
Read all the steps below first then set your timer to 3 minutes and be ready to press start (choose a gentle alarm!)
Get ready on the count of 3 to completely relax and remaining absolutely still, noticing your normal breathing
don’t be concerned if yout mind is racing – let it, just choose to focus on your steady breath for now
When you are ready, press start. Regardless of what your mind has told you about the cause of your discomfort or is telling you now, dedicate the next three minutes to allowing yourself to experience any sensations of discomfort as they arise; allow your focus to zoom in on the most predominant sensation and just rest on it. Refocus as many times as necessary.
Brexit has been a great exercise in focusing on what really matters for me. I had felt like I’d been stripped of something precious to me – I identified more as European than a little Englander. I’ve since realised that what I was identifying with was only really a concept. It’s not really who I am. I am one with all peoples everywhere! So politicians can play their games but I am part of the whole, a much bigger ‘organisation’ that encompasses all that is, forever!
