Today I am inspired to write about a process I use that I shared with a client recently.
Ultimately - we are all one and come from the same light source..but most of us do not really think about that or connect to that...it can seem so distant.
This is especially true when we are in strife of some sort...then light is dim and all is dark. People can come into our lives that feel so alien, so dark , messy and annoying!!!
So - when I am in this space - I take a few moments to just stop - and breathe....
Never forget the importance of breathing - it is essential for our lives, and it calms us down... taking in oxygen deep into our lungs gives us life force energy - this is why it works!!
Where I can I also close my eyes and look towards the sun or light.... breathing in the light of life so to speak!
From this space I look inwards - deep into my own body and being - to where my own inner light is. Sometimes I can feel so lost that the light is so dim and so small - but - it will always be there - no matter how bad things are - because it only goes out when we leave our body for good. So long as you are alive - there will be a light source within your body.
Once I can see it - I focus on it- and I consciously drop into it... as if I could shrink myself and fall right inside it... here I can breath and with each breath I imagine expanding this light in my body - more and more with each breath - breathing in the light and expanding it and breathing out the stress....
Don't worry if you can't "actually" see it - this is the mind we are working with - the imagination- the reptilian brain. This part of our brain accepts everything we imagine as real. When we think of biting into a sour lemon our mouths actually begin to salivate - this is because this part of the brain takes everything we imagine as real... so reality is what we think it is....and our cells and body will respond as if it is real....and so it becomes real.
So focusing on growing this light - I expand it into my heart.. from here - the light can infect my blood and be carried in the blood to every cell of my body - I don't have to try hard here - I just have to let it happen - and it will happen automatically within 3 minutes.
Once my whole body is filled with the light of my soul... I expand it with my breath outwards into my whole aura...so that my whole body is now within a bubble of my own light. From here I place an energetic shield of protection around my field... programming it to allow all that is to my highest good to enter and exit.
In doing this - anything that is not meant to be in my body or field is expelled... as anything dark runs away from the light - just think of how cockroaches run from the light when you switch on the light - and so it is with lower negative energy vibrations.
Once I am in this space - I begin to feel much better about life - and now I am ready to look at any other people in my life that I have been feeling negative about.
Often I find that its been my own negative projection that I have placed on the other person that has made me see them as dark... it is not them I have been seeing at all - just a reflection of my own black mood!
If we are wearing dark glasses - or bad mood glasses- then we see the world through that filter of our mood or belief systems - and we are not seeing the world as it is or people as they are - we are seeing our own thought forms being reflected back at us!!!
Other times I will see that the person I am looking at is indeed in a dark place and they may well have forgotten their own light - or be detached from it.. but - I know- as they are alive - that deep within them is their own light - no matter how dimly it is showing.
What we focus on expands and we see what we are looking for... this is the simple way that we work really. So - if we are focusing on the dark in another - then that is what we will see and attract from them.
Likewise - if we look for the light in them - then we can find it and the mere act of looking for it and focusing on it - expands that light in them. This is the greatest service we can offer to another... to look for their light and expand on it. Now - if they are in the middle of a bad phase in life and deep in drugs, for example - this does not mean we let our guard down and go all airy fairy love and light... no - we still put up our boundaries - but we look from afar - from a safe space...and meditate on the light within them.
But - in other situations - which is the more usual situation I find myself in....I take off my glasses of projection and start to think about all the good in the other person - all the things they are doing right... and I look into them to find their inner light... and focus on it... and soon - I feel such an opening of my heart and such a deep appreciation for that person... I literally start to see them in a different light!!!
I then find that either the conflict I felt just resolves naturally - or I am able to approach them in a much lighter more open way - where we are both receptive to each other - and are able to resolve the issue in a far more constructive way that benefits both of us.
Remember - what we focus on - we get more of... so we can take responsibility to focus on our own light - thereby expanding it - and the light of others... again - expanding it... and then onward to a more joyful and light filled experience.
