Every day we have opportunities to trust Spirit, to go more deeply into truth, and to surrender whatever comes up that appears to be blocking our self-realization. The miracles of God are often simple opportunities to let go of our thoughts, feelings and reactions and step into the greater conscious willingness that is within us. There are times when the energy flow is great, high and mighty and there are also times when the flow appears less apparent.
Last week I went for an eye exam and the eye doctor did not like the appearance of one of my eyes. He set up an MRI and the scan revealed a tumor that was pushing on my eye. That set off a series of referrals that led me to an ENT doctor and surgeon that is referring me to sinus doctor that specializes in delicate procedures. All of this has challenged my capacity to ride the waves of uncertainty and trust the process and stay in the present with my energy and present moment awareness.
When we have something coming up for us that adds waves to our internal calmness, what works for me is to call forth “The Presence,” and surrender all my feeling, the emotional energy and wrap it up and give it to Spirit. The vital energies and power of our humanity stirs up the “what if’s” and that is where the inner work for the moment has to be focused. Healing and raising my vibration.
I use prayer, dialog with the divine, contemplation, meditation, spiritual study and affirmations as part of my daily spiritual practice. Over the years I have used the daily Spiritual Mind Treatments in Creative Thought, Unity,
Agape International, and in the Science of Mind magazines, Louise Hays, Deepak Chopra’s and many others. One of favorite daily tools is “Affirmations for Self- Healing” by Swami Kriyananda, direct disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda.
“I hold my thoughts up to the calmness within; in calmness I receive inspiration from my higher Self.”
Paramhansa Yogananda said: “The GREATER the WILL, the greater the FLOW OF ENERGY.”
Today I trust in the divine flow and process that is leading me into the unique rhythm,pulse and ever greater attunement with Spirit. I give thanks for all that is in my life and all that I am, knowing I am always loved, guided, guarded and directed by the Spirit of the Indwelling Presence and so are you. And So It Is!
Know how deeply loved you are, Blessings, Rev. Barb
