Walk Into Abundance - Day 20

Good morning to you on this Saturday and welcome to Day 20 of WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE together.


Today, we get ready to celebrate the end of our WALKING TOGETHER!  We deserve some luxury, some treats!  So, let's start this day with a delicious cup of tea or coffee and delight in its aroma, its taste, watch its steam, feel the cup in our hands.  Then, let's look over the rim of the cup and luxuriate in what we SEE:  Morning sunlight?  Morning rain? Trees blooming?  Roses in the back yard?  Dandelions?  What we hear:  Bird song???  Music? 

I am sure each one of us will see the abundance that is on display in the grass and the leaves of the trees. What a luxury to be able to see it and appreciate it.

Let's go on from there: I wonder what else you will luxuriate in today?


Todays AFFIRMATION - “Today, I treat myself to moments of luxury.”         

     

Please write this affirmation into your journal and contemplate it throughout the day:'Today, I treat myself to moments of luxury.”


MEDITATION & MANTRA

Sansrit Meditation Mantra: "Om Ritam Namah"

"My actions and desires are supported by cosmic intelligence.”


Todays TASK - leaf through your journal and read the tasks you've performed. Is there something that you missed? Would you like to supplement anything in the light of the insights and awareness you have gained?


After that, think about someone in your life who seems to be unhappy or is going through a challenging time. This person may complain often and have a generally negative view of life. It could be someone from the 7th day list or someone else. Maybe you will be moved to share the parable from Day 19 with this person and write down what happens in your journal:  How did you feel sharing the parable with him/her? What thoughts, associations, sensations arose in the process? Did they answer? Did you talk about it? What did you discuss?


A MESSAGE - Today, we look at the concept of luxury. Can you embrace the belief that you deserve only the best and are ready to receive it?  Please ponder these questions and write or draw or process your answers in your journal:


QUESTION 1: How is luxury manifested in my life?

QUESTION 2: What luxurious gifts do I present myself?

QUESTION 3: How can I bring luxury to others?





Walk Into Abundance - Day 19

Good morning to you and welcome to DAY 19 of WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE together! 


Slowly, we are nearing the end of our walk.  It is passing as  "all things pass".  So, let's enjoy the experiences we are still sharing and gather together all the "things" we have gained…


Todays AFFIRMATION - “Today, I remember to love everything and everyone I come into contact with."     

                                         

Please write this affirmation into your journal and reflect on it throughout your day.


MEDITATION & MANTRA

Sanskrit Mantra: "Sat Chit Ananda / Satchitananda"

" Existence Consciousness Bliss”


Todays TASK - read the parable below a couple of times, and then write  the thoughts and feelings that come up for you into your notebook.


Today, please  *SHARE*  in the COMMENTS below a short essay answering the question: "What does this parable mean to me?”


PARABLE: This Too Shall Pass


There was a king who once said to the court sages:


“I have a ring with one of the finest diamonds in the world, and I want to hide a message under the stone that can be useful in a situation of extreme despair. I will give this ring to my heirs, and I want it to serve them faithfully. Think of what kind of message should be there. It must be very short to fit in the ring.”


The sages knew how to write treatises, but did not express themselves in one short sentence. They thought and thought, but did not come up with anything.


The king complained about the failure of his venture to a faithful old servant who raised him from infancy and was part of the family. And the old man said to him:


“I’m not a sage, I’m not educated, but I know such a message. For many years spent in the palace, I met a lot of people. And once I served a visiting mystic whom your father invited. And he gave me this message. I ask that you don’t read it now. Save it under the stone and open it only when there’s no way out at all."


The king listened to the old servant. After some time, the enemies attacked the country and the king lost the war. He fled on his horse and his enemies pursued him. He was alone, his enemies were many. He rode to the end of the road. There was a huge deep cliff before him; if he fell there, it would be the end. He could not go back, as the enemies were approaching. He already heard the clatter of their horses' hooves. He had no way out. He was in complete despair.


And then he remembered the ring. He opened it and found an inscription: “This too shall pass.”

After reading the message, he felt that everything was quiet. Apparently, the pursuers got lost and proceeded in the wrong direction. Horses were no longer heard. The king was filled with gratitude to the servant and the unknown mystic. The words were powerful. He closed the ring and set out on the road. He gathered his army and returned to his state.


On the day when he returned to the palace, they arranged a magnificent meeting, a feast for the whole world. The people loved their king. The king was happy and proud. An old servant came up to him and said softly: “Even in this moment, look at the message again.”


The King said, “Now I am a winner, people are celebrating my return. I'm not in despair, not in a hopeless situation."


“Listen to this old servant,” the servant answered. “The message works not only in moments when everything is bad, but also in moments of victory.”


The king opened the ring and read: "This too shall pass." And again he felt a silence fall over him, although he was in the midst of a noisy dancing crowd. His pride dissolved. He understood the message. He was a wise man.


And then the old man said to the king: “Do you remember everything that happened to you? Nothing and no feeling is permanent. As night changes day, so moments of joy and despair replace each other. Accept them as the nature of things, as part of life.”


I look forward to reading your essays!. 




Walk Into Abundance - Day 18

Good morning to you and welcome to Day 18 of WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE together! 


There is a lot of upheaval taking place on a global scale right now. We are fighting for justice and equal rights for all. This is all part of the process of bringing the toxic norms out into the light for healing. If, in the end, we realize that we are all one, true healing occurs. The color of our skin, the slant of our eyes, the tone of the language we speak does not separate us from our true origin. We all come from the same star dust. That which we hate in another is something inside that we hate in ourselves. 


Todays AFFIRMATION - “I celebrate my unity with all life, knowing we are all one.“


Please write this affirmation into your journal and reflect on it throughout the day: “I celebrate my unity with all life, knowing we are all one.“


MEDITATION & MANTRA


MEDITATION LINK


Sanskrit Meditation Mantra: "Tat Tvam Aci"

"I see the other in myself and myself in the other.”


Todays TASK - think about your country of origin.  Then, write a letter to your country of origin, expressing all your feelings about it.  Please remember: ALL of your feelings are valid and appropriate. So, please write down everything that comes up for you.


REFLECTION


In today's meditation, Unity was described as the basic truth of all that exists.

As individuals, we are not necessarily alike: We may have different lifestyles, different beliefs and perceptions. Yet, according to this school of thought, these differences exist only on the physical plane. At the molecular and spiritual level, we are actually all one and are connected with the universal primary source.


Imagine that when we begin to fully understand this concept of life in unity, the idea of a personal “I” will give way to the image of the universal “I.” The concept of rivalry and competition disappears and is replaced by deep love and empathy for everyone and everything around us.


On the basis of these thoughts, ponder these questions and write your musings into your journal:


QUESTION 1: How do I define unity?

QUESTION 2: What do I think of diversity?

QUESTION 3: How did meditation help me realize the idea of living in unity?


Please comment "Day 18 done" in the comments below.  Thank you!





Walk Into Abundance - Day 17

Good morning to you and welcome to DAY 17 of WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE together! 


Today, we get to play in the warm sunshine at the Lake of Gratitude and in the Meadows of Joy a bit more, lighthearted and carefree!  There is so much more to discover: A gurgling brook that has buttercups growing on its banks; otters gliding through the waters; meadow larks singing; a group of tall trees swaying in the breeze, its leaves whispering a song.


Todays AFFIRMATION - ״I move through my days lighthearted and carefree knowing all is well.” 


Please write this affirmation in your journal and remember it throughout this day:  ״I move through my days lighthearted and carefree knowing all is well.”


MEDITATION & MANTRA


MEDITATION LINK 


Sanskrit Mantra: "Sat Chit Ananda / Satchitananda”

"Existence Consciousness Bliss”


Todays TASK - Think about all the important things you have, material, spiritual, emotional, etc. Write down the ones you consider most important and why:  For example:

• I have a smartphone to be in touch with the world.

• I have a credit card to pay bills.

• I have a real, loving friendship/relationship.

Or just list them:

• I have memories.

• I have an education.

• I have a favorite city.

 Recognize everything you have that matters to you.


JOURNAL

Today we look at how we can live carefree; free from judgment, worry and anxiety, focusing on the joy and perfection of what is right now. By meditating and plunging into the awareness of the present moment (or by going on a hike, kayaking on a lake), we may touch on the experience that everything is perfect and is as it should be; that any problems we have are transient and temporary. 


Record reflections in your journal:


1: How do I feel when I wake up every morning?

2: How much would my life improve if I lived with a light and carefree heart?

3: How can I switch my mind to spread the love & joy that I feel in my heart?





Walk Into Abundance - Day 16

Good morning to you and welcome to DAY 16 of WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE!


Todays AFFIRMATION - "Today I remember to be grateful."                              


Please write this affirmation into your journal and think about it throughout your day: "Today I remember to be grateful."   You may also choose to sing Karen Drucker's "Gratitude" song again and again (which is posted below). It’s a beautiful sentiment that will lift you up and fill you with gratitude for the day.


MEDITATION & MANTRA


MEDITATION LINK 


Sanskrit Meditation Mantra: Om Vardhanam Namah        

“I nourish the Universe and the Universe nourishes me."


Todays TASK - Make a list of all the things that you have always wanted to do, but have postponed, you may not have followed through because you set other priorities, or because you fear you might hurt someone, or because you are afraid of failing. 


Regardless of the reason, these are things that you still plan on doing. The intention of this exercise is to forgive yourself for everything that you have not done in your life.


For each line on your list, write a text of forgiveness based on the examples below:


  • I, full name, forgive myself absolutely and lovingly for… not graduating from college.
  • I, full name, forgive myself absolutely and lovingly… that I did not show my vulnerability.


Write down anything and everything you want, without limitation.


Karen Drucker's "Gratitude" song






Walk Into Abundance - Day 15

Hello and welcome to  DAY 15 of WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE together.


You are at a point in your journey where the task below invites you to remember, and then release energetic burdens around unpleasant or bad memories.  Be grateful that this opportunity has come, because it also invites you focus on what you want to create, and to choose your thoughts consciously as part of this act of creation. 


During this interesting time in our history, let's choose to be the light, be the laughter, and love for ourselves and for others. It is also contagious.


Todays AFFIRMATION - “As I live in present moment awareness, I live the magic of synchrodestiny.”


Please write this affirmation in your journal and reflect on it throughout the day: “As I live in present moment awareness, I live the magic of synchrodestiny.”


MEDITATION & MANTRA


MEDITATION LINK


Sanskrit Mediation Mantra: "Aham Bramasmi"

"The core of my being is the ultimate reality.”


Todays TASK 


Please write a letter of gratitude and recognition to a person who you think “hurt” you at some point in your life. Begin by meditating and allow an image of this person to come to you. It is possible that more than one person may appear, yet for today, you are only writing one letter.


Before writing the letter, clear and cleanse yourself of any negative emotion that you may still hold around the hurt you experienced. You may write down feelings of anger and resentment and the like on a separate piece of paper and then tear that sheet into shreds or even burn them.  You may also be able to release these feelings into the core of the Earth.  You may want to take a shower and wash them off, watch them drain away…


Finally, write your gratitude letter by hand, on a separate piece of paper! (It will not be mailed.)  You may want to  focus on how you have grown through this experience or what lessons you've learned because of the hurt that person caused. The goal is not to acknowledge good things about that person.  The goal is to find the gift to YOU that came with the experience.





Walk Into Abundance - Day 14

Good morning to you and welcome to DAY 14 of WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE together! 


Today, there is the invitation for each one of us to walk onto a look-out. Visualize from this vantage point, and contemplate a mountain just across the valley from you. There you have a beautiful view of this mountain which is the mountain of your personal purpose in life. It asks you:  “Do you believe that we are here to fulfill a purpose? 

Do you believe that all of us have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it? 


While looking at the mountain, entertain that possibility. Then, the question arises: How would we get closer to the mountain and how would we ever be able to climb it? Well, you could draw a map. And all the things we love and enjoy doing will be the markers to point us in the right direction. 


Todays AFFIRMATION - "There is a way I can fulfill my true purpose in life."    

Write it in your notebook and reflect on it often throughout the day: "There is a way I can fulfill my true purpose in life.”


MEDITATION & MANTRA


MEDITATION LINK


Sanskrit Meditation Mantra: "Om Varunam Namah"

MESSAGE

Today we are completing the second week of the 21-day WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE together!  Let's celebrate that!  Thank you for walking with me!.

In Your Notebook, please record your thoughts and reactions to the following questions:

Video Link


Part 2: Journal

Walk Into Abundance - Day 13

Good morning to you and  welcome to the 13th day of WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE together! Did you realize that we have passed the half-way point while we were busy playing in the field and tending it? 


Our path takes us onto new terrain today, an area that is called The Law of Detachment.  I wonder what this area is going to look like for you and what your journey through it will bring you.  Some claim that this territory is about understanding and accepting uncertainty. We may not know what the next bend of the path is leading to.  Are we meeting this uncertainty with excitement and a sense of adventure?  Or do we dread finding out what will come next?  Often, we are encouraged to be open to the infinite possibilities that are out there. And to know that when things don’t seem to go our way, there is something much bigger and better awaiting us. 


How does that sit with you?  

Can you entertain the possibility that the Universe will bring abundant good to you once you manage to let go of the need to arrange your life?


Todays AFFIRMATION - "As I let go of the need to arrange my life, the Universe brings abundant good to me.”       

                              

Please write this affirmation into your notebook and reflect on it often: As I let go of the need to arrange my life, the universe brings abundant good to me!


MEDITATION & MANTRA


Please listen to today's meditation twice in a row today:


Sanskrit Meditation Mantra: "Om Anandham Namah"

"My actions are blissfully free from attachment to outcome”


You can connect the mantra and the meditation to the 5th chakra on the throat area, which is our "Expression" chakra (Vishuddha) and vibrates the  color blue.


In Your Notebook: Record your thoughts on the following questions.


1: What symbols of abundance do I dream of?

2: How could they improve both my life and the lives of others?

3: How else will such abundance positively affect my life?


Then, think about your mom’s description from Day 11. 

Considering your life and your patterns of behavior, what similarities do you see between you and your mom? 

What are they and how were they formed?


Write your reflections in your notebook.




Walk Into Abundance - Day 12

Walk Into Abundance - Day 10

Good morning to you and welcome to DAY 10 of WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE together!

Beyond narrow ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing there is a vast "FIELD" of energy. So let's walk past those dualistic ideas of wrong-and-right-doing and meet Rumi, in "The Field." He wrote, "I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. "

Let's play in that field of possibility, and let's play in it with full consciousness.

Todays AFFIRMATION - “Today I make great choices because they are made with full awareness.“

Please write this affirmation into your notebook and keep it in mind all day, saying it, reading it, and even writing it often: “Today I make great choices because they are made with full awareness."

MEDITATION & MANTRA
MEDITATION LINK

Sanskrit Meditation Mantra: "Om Kriyam Namah. "My actions are aligned with cosmic law."

You can relate this to the 1st chakra, at the base of the spine. Your Root chakra, (Muladhara) is associated with the color red.

Todays TASK is a two-part task:

Part 1 - Listen to today's meditation at least twice. It discusses conscious decision-making from our heart and developing our ability to fulfill our dreams with minimal effort. When you do not like the effect of your choice, choose again!

In you JOURNAL - Please sit in meditation with the following questions for a few minutes and deeply listen to your inner response before writing down your answers in your journal.

Question 1: How do I make decisions?

Question 2: How have my decisions affected my life?

Question 3: How can I make more conscious choices?

Part 2 - Choose two shortcomings that limit your ability to manifest abundance from the list you made yesterday in your journal. Establish a program for yourself by writing down at least two specific daily actions that “remedy" the shortcoming, reduce its deficiency, or realize that there is a plus side to this trait, and start using it to your advantage. Immediately begin to act on your program.

Example: If one of your flaws is being ungrateful or complaining, you can establish a daily-journaling habit of writing down all that you're grateful for, and immediately start by listing what you are grateful for! You can sing your gratitude, paint it, write your own poem about it, create a Mandala. And shower your shortcomings with the color red.


Walk Into Abundance - Day 9

Good morning to you!  How are you doing today??  Welcome to DAY 9 of "WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE"!  


You are on an exploration to discover what is important for you NOW.  The posts with their affirmations and meditations and tasks bring you impulses, things to consider.  They may seem like NOTHING you would ever want to believe on first sight.  Sit with it.  Be just a little curious.  You may just discover something worth while.  


If you get stuck doing a task, please reach out. Send me a private message if you need to talk through something.  Reaching out to a fellow walker is another possibility you may want to consider.


Todays AFFIRMATION - "Today and every day, I give that which I want to receive." 


Please write this affirmation into your notebook and reflect on it throughout the day: "Today and every day, I give that which I want to receive.”

Todays TASK - In your notebook, write down 5 of your shortcomings or flaws, behaviors that limit you.  These may be traits that do not allow you to receive what you want materially, or in any areas of abundance.


Do not write from the mind, but rather from the heart. Feel into what these shortcomings are. You may want to draw their energy, sculpt them, quilt them.  And heal them with the color Green.


Please comment "Day 9 done" below!

Hello, companions of the path, and welcome to Day 8 of WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE!  Together, we are walking onto the second week of exploration and meditation.

Todays TASK - Find at least 5 receipts of recent purchases. Write on each of them:


"All that is invested is good and will return to itself seven times.”


Receipts can be of any type: grocery store, restaurant, personal items, car, health, etc. If your receipts are electronic, create a paper receipt by writing the amount, date, and to whom you paid on a piece of paper.


From now on, write this statement on each receipt that you receive. What you write is as important as the energy you are transmitting when you write it. Words have power. They help our mind build new programming and therefore create a new reality.


Please write "Day 8 done" in the comments below when you have completed the tasks for today!

Please create a list of people who make you feel uncomfortable.  Focus on the ENERGY of discomfort. Include people even if you only feel occasionally uncomfortable with them. These can be neighbors, employees, bosses, family members, members of the government. These people may trigger you and, at the same time, may also be your teachers or mentors. This might include people from the list of the first day, i.e., those who have pushed you to grow and have brought something meaningful to your life.


Please remember to write "Day 7 Done" in the comments.


An AFTERTHOUGHT:


“The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.” ~ Anna Quindlen




Walk Into Abundance - Day 6

Good morning to you! WE MADE IT TO DAY 6!


Todays AFFIRMATION – “Everything I desire, is within me!”


Please write this in your journal and reflect on it throughout the day: “Everything I desire, is within me!”


MEDITATION & MANTRA LINK


Sanskrit Meditation Mantra: “Ram… Ram… Ram…” Everything I desire is within me.


Our TASK Today – Write the statement posted below 10 times in your notebook by hand (cursive is considered best). Then, it is suggested that you record yourself reading the statement aloud with expression and a sense of attachment (i.e., with sincerity)… on audio and/or video. Speaking in front of a mirror works, too. Please read through the statement, then read it again. Sit with it. Connect with what you are about to write. I suggest you write it once and highlight any areas that you may have issues with. Explore what your resistance may be connected to. Then choose what it is you would like to do.


Would you like to write it in the form it is given?

Would you like to re-phrase it?

Would you like to leave out a phrase?

It is YOUR statement, – make it fit!


The STATEMENT - “I, (full name), am starting a new relationship with money beginning today. Money is good, useful, pure, and necessary for my prosperity and growth, for my satisfaction and abundance. Money brings positive things into my life. The success I experience in life brings financial rewards and happiness for me and my loved ones. I deserve to be prosperous and have money in abundance. Money is my friend, and the value of my investments is growing every day. Success and money accompany me here and now. I ask my parents, grandparents, and ancestors back to the very origins of my family who had difficulties due to lack of money to bless me as I choose to live differently, and I ask all my prosperous forebears to inspire me to live in abundance and prosperity.”🌺

Please comment “Day 6 done” in the comments below! Thank you  


The purpose for the repetitive writing lies in the fact that we learn through repetition and rehearsal. The physical act of writing and then speaking lays down different pathways in our brains. The intent behind the task is to harmonize your internal relationship with money and abundance. The discomfort around and/or resistance to some tasks are not unusual. This journey highlights our blocks and negative programming clearly so that we may see what is tripping us up on our path to abundance. Then, we can sit with those blocks and ultimately release them.




Walk Into Abundance - Day 5

Good morning and welcome to Day 5 of WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE! 🌺


Let’s take a moment to acknowledge how far we have walked together in these past 4 days, the refuge we have found in this group and in this practice. Then, let’s share the abundance! 🌺

“Today I embrace my potential to be, do, and have whatever I can dream.”


Please write the affirmation in your journal and reflect on it throughout the day: “Today I embrace my potential to be, do, and have whatever I can dream.”

Sanskrit Meditation Mantra: “Sat Chit Ananda Existence Consciousness Bliss


Todays MESSAGE


Walk into the “Field of All Possibilities” that appears in the silence of meditation. The unlimited power of the Universe is always at our disposal. By making intuitive decisions rooted in this Unified Field, we can manifest our deepest desires. Let’s continue to cultivate silence in our every day lives! Let’s spend more time in nature, immerse ourselves in beautiful music, listen to uplifting and inspiring stories, and surround ourselves with optimistic, like-minded people. We will see how the Field of All Possibilities is widely revealed to us (like a sudden expansive vista appears when you are on a hike) and helps us create the future we wish for.


Today is based on the law of ENERGY EXCHANGE. EVERYTHING is made of energy. And we are constantly exchanging energy with one another. Energy does not disappear. It simply changes form. If someone has departed, then someone has arrived. If you send something out, then something will return to you. If you want to achieve balance, learn to give AND receive. Today’s exercise is completely devoted to this exchange, and it’s a tremendous turning point in our journey!


Todays TASK


Starting today, YOU begin your OWN abundance group. Yes – you read that correctly 😀


Take a moment and sit with this! Before you decide, please read on.


Your group does not have to be big. It can be 2-3 people. Yet I suggest that you invite everyone! Let the love in your heart expand and write your post, reach out and then let it go! Allow the other people to decide whether your group will be interesting to them or not. Perhaps they want to step OUT of THEIR current circumstances and are waiting for you to invite them to WALK INTO ABUNDANCE. They may be looking for refuge that you may be able to offer. This is one way you can contribute to making change in on the planet. You won’t know unless you reach out.

So what will be involved in creating your group to walk into abundance?


  1. You will create your invitation. You may copy and paste all that I have created in my 21 Days Walk Into Abundance. Deepak Chopra has provided us all of the meditations for the 21 days as well, and we are all welcome to use them to help spread this healing vibration around the world.


2. Choose a profile photo that symbolizes abundance to you.


3. Name your group; either “21 Days of Abundance”, WALKING INTO ABUNDANCE, or another name that works for you.


4. Write your post: You may copy the each of the days I have posted. You may use it as a starting point and change it around, or you may write your own. Your invitation should explain the intention of the group and say that there will be daily tasks.


5. You will post your invitation.


6. As we have done with our group, consider setting-up your “Day 0,” so that your Day 1 falls on a Monday. For many people, starting on a Monday will feel like a good, fresh start to their week and to this journey.


7. From then on, copy, edit, and send the daily messages I have been sending you. You can edit to fit your personality, however, the tasks and meditations MUST remain the same! When you’ve created your group, comment here, ”Group Created.”


A friend who had reached the point you are at right now described her process in this way, “My resistance reared up BIG TIME around this task, and I was calling “bullsh*&t on the whole process! Then I just sat there, bugged for a while. Finally, I began to consider… was I gonna quit, again? Was I going to lie and say I created a group and just post ‘Day 5 Done’? Was I going let my discomfort talk me into falling short of what was definitely possible for me to do? Honestly, underneath the hesitation was fear–fear that no one would join, fear that I would be a bad facilitator, fear that ____ (fill in the blank). I grumbled through creating the group and inviting people. I shook my head and moved forward with it. The next day was a bit better, and now, NOW, I’m actually having fun.




Walk Into Abundance - Day 4

Good morning to you  Let’s welcome DAY 4 of Walking Into Abundance!


Yesterday’s task brought out an abundance in creative responses. So let us walk on together! Let us continue to walk OUT of fear and constriction into a future we look forward to. Let’s invite unlimited abundance into our lives.


Todays AFFIRMATION – “From this moment forward, I invite unlimited abundance into my life.”


Please write this affirmation into your journal and reflect on it throughout the day, “From this moment forward, I invite unlimited abundance into my life.”


MEDITATION & MANTRA LINK


Sanskrit Meditation Mantra: “Aham Brahmasmi” The core of my being is the ultimate reality.”


Todays TASK – Please make a list of people you consider to be prosperous in your family or in your environment. These are people you personally know and may have access to. They may have achieved their goals in life, all or in part, are happy and filled with joy, or are perceived by you as such.


IMPORTANT! We are not talking only about financial prosperity. The required component is the joy and happiness that person is experiencing! How many people you list does not matter. Two can be enough. They should reflect to you what it looks like to live a life of abundance and prosperity. This can have varied iterations.


Please remember, the more attention and reflection you give to these tasks, the greater the return.


Day 4 offers 🌻🌺OPTIONAL questions for you to consider. Please write the answers in your notebook:


1- What does it mean to you to be immersed in pure consciousness?

2- How can you bring this awareness into your everyday life?

3- How has the practice of meditation helped you connect with your pure consciousness?


Please post: “Day 4 done” when you have completed the task(s) and meditation.





Walk Into Abundance - Day 3

Hello again and welcome to Day 3 of “Walking into Abundance”! I am excited for all of us.


Can you feel that you are hitting your stride?


Today, we are asked to remember that abundance refers to anything that we would like to manifest abundantly. 💖Anything…. Wrap your mind around that…. Then wrap your heart around that …. Anything we would like to manifest abundantly. So we better start asking what that “anything” is, – and the Affirmation for Today will help us with that.


Todays AFFIRMATION – “Today I focus on what I want to attract into my life.”


Please write the affirmation into your notebook and reflect on it throughout the day; “Today I focus on what I want to attract into my life.”


MEDITATION & MANTRA LINK


Meditation Mantra: “Sat Chit Ananda” Existence, Consciousness, Bliss


Your TASK today – Awaken your creativity today! In your beautiful notebook draw/paint/create notes, checks, stocks, bonds, coins, and any image of other means of payment that comes to mind, to pay off all the debts and expenses you wrote down yesterday. You have complete freedom to create here! Go wild! Soar!!!


This drawing exercise is to make it possible to pay for everything you need from the unlimited potential of the universe. So take out your felt-tip pens, pencils, crayons or paints, and your glitter and stickers! Get playful! There are no limitations. And it does not have to be literal. The key is to draw what true abundance looks and feels like to you.


This is not about drawing well, it’s about allowing yourself to create a reality and let it manifest into your life. While you are designing and coloring, feel the satisfaction of creating a balance between debts and expenses, and the means of payment that you create–as if it were a real payment of your expenses and debts. Think about how will you use your gifts and what your dreams are, and allow your heart to flow!


Please remember to post “Day 3 done” here in the group. If you feel moved to share what you created, feel free to do that too.




Walk Into Abundance - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2, "Walking into Abundance"


Todays AFFIRMATION - “I create my personal abundance from an infinite source.”


Please write this affirmation down in your notebook and reflect on it throughout the day


MEDITATION & MANTRA LINK


The days Mantra: "Aham Brahmasmi" (the unity of the individual self and the Absolute)


Todays TASK - Please write all of your debts in your notebook: debts on bank accounts, credit cards, loans, debts to individuals - ALL of your debts of any kind. No need to record the amount, write down only to whom, and for what the debt is owed. Example: mortgage, car loan, a debt to VISA for a gift to Joey, etc.


Then, make a list of all your monthly payments, both constant and changing, also without numbers. Examples: rent, electricity, gas, student loans, etc... Please record everything you are required to pay each month. Some of us do not like to think about "money", - I am one of those people. If denying your debts or forcing yourself to push debts out of your mind is your habit, NOW is the time to bring that information into the light of consciousness to be healed.


Your list may be extensive. Give yourself time to calmly walk through all the areas of your life in which you pay money. You may need to add what you remember throughout the day. If it is difficult for you to perform any task, then it is clear that there is a block, an obstacle in your mind on the path toward attaining abundance. Be aware of this, and STICK with it.


Finally, answer the question, “What does abundance mean to me?” Write any thoughts in your notebook.


After you complete the task, please post, “Day 2 Done."


Walk Into Abundance - Day 1

Welcome to DAY 1


Are you ready to take the first steps into Abundance? This is how it goes.


AFFIRMATION:


“Today, I behold all the abundance that surrounds me”.


Write this phase in your notebook and reflect on it throughout the day.


MEDITATION & MANTRA:


Listen to the meditation that can be found in the audio link below. The Sanskrit Mantra you will repeat during meditation is “So-ham". Enjoy!


Meditation Link


The First Days TASK:


In your new notebook, make a list of 50 people that have influenced your life. They can be either living or already departed; your relatives and friends, celebrities, writers, and personalities who you do not necessarily know personally. Everyone who has influenced you and contributed to your growth and development has a place on your list. After all, none of us got where we are by ourselves.


Make your list a LONG list (in the spirit of abundance) and find at least 50 names.
In the process of making your list, think about why you chose this person: What has changed in your life for the better with the help of this person?


Move calmly and thoughtfully. Remember the best things about each person on your list and what they bring into your life. (If someone comes up later during your day, add them to your list then.) Trust the process.

Upon completion of all of the above, please write: "Day 1 Done” in the comments section of this post.


Love and light

Susan

Walk Into Abundance - Day 0


Day 0


Tomorrow, I am beginning a 21 day “Walk Into Abundance” group. Let’s WALK INTO ABUNDANCE together! Join me for the next 21 days and envision your way into a future that excites you.


Each day, for the next 21 days, will begin with an affirmation, followed by a lovely meditation guided by Deepak Chopra. You will be given one task to focus on individually. It would be best if you have a small notebook to write down the days affirmation and any task you may be assigned for that day.


Day 1, tomorrow – you will begin your “walk” by pondering an AFFIRMATION that you will be asked to write into your journal. A daily MEDITATION will help deepen your focus on the affirmation. Each day, there will be a TASK for you to accomplish.


Throughout this adventure, feel free to message me with any questions. I am here! And you are welcome.


Are you still ready and willing to go on this adventure with me? If yes, GREAT! I am so grateful for your company on this journey OUT of fear and worry and isolation INTO health, joy, love and ABUNDANCE. I am so glad you checked out this possibility!


Written Instructions for PREPARATIONS to Walk into Abundance:


  1. Find a JOURNAL to dedicate solely to this practice so that you can write down where you have been and how you got there.
  2. Locate a PEN, crayons, stickers, glitter etc., so you can mark a spot on your map or draw map details, or document your journey.
  3. Be ready to carve out some TIME in your “shelter-at-home” schedule to spend on your daily walk into Abundance. You will need between 20 – 45 minutes per day.
  4. Enter that time/space with a curious mind. Notice what you notice. You may want to write it down. You may want to draw it, paint it. And then LET IT BE, no need for labels, or judgments.


See you tomorrow.


Practicing Mindfulness



This morning I am sitting outside. Lately, since we have been in lockdown, I have taken to sitting outside everyday, rain or shine. 


During the morning hours, while I was sitting in meditation in my living room on one particular morning, I realized that I needed to sit with nature. I felt agitated and the air felt stagnant in the house. At that time it was raining and a little chilly, but I got my lounge chair set up under the garage eve, took a warm blanket, and headed outside to sit in stillness. 


The sound of the pitter-patter of the rain can be meditative in and of itself. The birds may be out of sight, hidden under the leaves of the trees that surround you, but you can hear their song. Quietly I sat for an extended time in the present moment, listening, feeling my inner body. This is sitting mediation.


Meditation is Being. It is a time where you practice quieting the mind and turning within. Feel your heart space. Follow your breath. Be still. When thoughts come in, just let them go. Don’t be self-critical if thoughts come. They will always come, just let them go and return to following your breath. Stay in presence; in the Now.

There are so many wonderful guided meditations you will discover on YouTube. Take your pick and try them out. Listen a few minutes and if you like the feel of one, bookmark it and try another one. Over time you will have a collection of several that you like. Make it a daily practice to sit in silence and practice with a guided meditation if guided mediations suit you best. 


There is also some wonderful mediation music available on YouTube. I have my favorites and you will to once you play around with the links as they come up when you do a meditation music search on YouTube. Save the ones that you resonate with. Make this a part of your daily practice to listen to instrumental meditation music while you visualize your energy channels running up and down your back and front channels. Mix that energy with the earth energy coming up from the souls of your feet. Connect the energy from your front channels, at your chest, and run it across your shoulders, down your arms, and out your hands. While you run the energy in your energetic field ask that it may be cleared, healed, balanced, and harmonized in all of your chakras.


A walk alone around the garden or out in nature with a quiet mind while being in presence. Kiss the earth with your feet. This kind of walking is also a meditation. When you cook, clean, do the dishes, or your laundry, you can do this as a mediation. Be mindful of your actions and keep everything you do a joyful task. Be present with everything that you do and mindful of each and every action. When you do this you are meditating. 


Try all the ways of practicing meditation. This is probably the best way to determine what works best for you. Maybe you will discover that each has a place in your practice at different times, moods, or circumstances. Whatever you choose is great.


Remember this; you are a child of God. 


Be in the present moment. There is no past. When you go into memories of the past and stir your emotions from those memories, you only bring yourself depression and suffering. When you go into the future and have thoughts of “what if,” you bring anxiety into your life. You cannot live in the past. The past is gone. You cannot live in the future. The future has not yet happened. There is only the present moment. If you live in the present moment there is no suffering. In the present moment you feel your heart beating and know the gift you are given with each breath. In the present moment you see the beauty that surrounds you. The present moment is where happiness and joy resides. Stay present. 


When your mind goes to the past or the future, bring it back to the present moment. Only visit the past to help us plan for the future, but do not live there. The practice of being in the present moment will end all of your suffering. You cannot suffer when you are in the present moment. 


Let’s Get Started



Before you begin your day, start with a short ten-minute meditation. I’ve selected one for you today, but there are several guided meditations available on YouTube. This one is simply teaching you about letting go of your thoughts and finding the peace within. A simple meditation is a wonderful way to begin your day, a new project, or calm yourself when your stress level is beginning to elevate. Click on this link, and sit quiet for ten minutes as you follow in this meditation.


With practice this will become easier and easier to do. Practicing meditation is like practicing playing the guitar, or practicing a second language. You must put in the time in order to gain the skill. It isn’t hard. It just takes practice.


As you sat in this meditation, did you feel your body calm? Were you able to release the thoughts that came up. Don’t criticize yourself for having thoughts. You can’t control them. They arise all the time. When you meditate you learn to release your thoughts, as if they were helium balloons, or bubbles. They come up and you let them go. Don’t follow them, or look at them closely. Allow them to come and go.


As you clear your thoughts you become more and more relaxed. Were you able to find that stillness? This state of relaxation helps you to create a deep sense of peace, and comfort in your body. In this state you are connecting with your inner-self; your true self.


How Has the Recent Global Shift Affected You?


Today I am especially moved by the energy of transformation that I can strongly feel on our planet now. In the midst of seeming chaos, I feel a true sense of calm. The shift in consciousness, that we have all arrived on this planet to experience in this life-time, is at hand. Can you feel it? The vibration has changed, and it will continue to change. 


Be advised. Meditate daily. Open your crown chakra to the cosmic consciousness and the God of your heart. Ground down to the center of the earth from your root chakra. Bring up earth energy from the core of the earth, through your feet chakras, up your leg channels, and into your root chakra. Feel the earth energy spill over your root chakra and return to the earth's core to be transmuted back out into the cosmos. Visualize Divine golden light coming in through your crown chakra, down your back channels, mixing with the earth energy, then traveling up your front channels and back out through the top of the head. See it spray out your crown chakra, cascading all around your aura. Brush and tuck this energy under your auric field, and above your auric field to create a perfect sphere of golden energy all around you.


A meditative practice prepares you for the transformational energy that is happening on our planet at this time. You are part of this magnificent shift in our planet's vibrational energy. We are the light-workers, and we are here to help restore balance to all things on the planet for the benefit of us all. 



Liberating the Goddesses within You - Week 1

I am taking a ten week course in “Liberating the Goddesses within You,” with Jean Shinoda Bolen. My intention is to share what I am learning with you so that you can discover, along with me, which archetypes are who you are. Rediscover what talents and natural abilities do you have that have been laying dormant? 


What are you doing with your “one wild and precious life?” This sentiment comes from Mary Oliver’s poem "Summer Day.” The meaning is regarding who you were born into the world as, and the way of being that is natural to you. 


If we examine more closely the word “wild,” we are reminded of wildness: the forest before it was logged; the plant before it was a tree or a bonsai. What is wild? It is what is naturally there.


When we tap into our natural talents, into those things that feel easy and joyous for us, we’ve tapped into our wildness. If you were born with a talent in music, visual arts, coordination, person to person, intelligence, it is built within you naturally. You can do it instinctively. If it is nurtured, supported, and is allowed to grow into all it can be, you feel joy as it develops what is naturally strong and present. It is effortless like listening to beautiful music. But maybe what came to you naturally in your childhood was stunted all along the way, never valued, and it was deprived nutrition.


When you do what you naturally do, it brings you joy. You lose track of time.


Chronos time - Father Time, clock time. This kind of time ages us. We watch the minutes and wait for time to pass. When you are in Chronos time it feels as if you are “doing time” and waiting for whatever it is to be over, until you will be free.


Kairos time - you are participating in time and are completely absorbed. You lose track of time. You are the time. It flows effortlessly.


In the next ten weeks I am going to share what I learn about the Virgin Goddesses (Artemis, Athena and Hestia); the Vulnerable Goddesses (Hera, Demeter and Persephone); and the Alchemical Goddess (Aphrodite). Which archetypes do you feel or see are like you? When living your archetypes you become absorbed in what you do. It is individual and unique to your story.


Your life is your Magnum Opus. You are the protagonist in the story of your own life. Note what has meaning for you. Notice how you feel when what you do and what you love come together. 


  • Remember the child you were and what parts of you from childhood were suppressed inside you and by whom
  • Explore what was valued by which parent when you were growing up and how this affected your innate nature
  • Discover how you may have been shamed and, thus, learned to shame yourself in the same ways
  • Begin to feel compassion and appreciation for what you have survived, done and loved


I am excited to share this with you and I hope you will benefit as well. 


From a Higher Perspective

When you were a child, your parents taught you about life from the perspective of their own upbringing. They may have taught you that you are wonderful, or they may have taught you that we have no value. 


When you run your energy, meditate, and see your own life timeline, and the timeline of your parents, from a higher perspective, you see life as if it were a road map. Everything makes more sense. You have a clearer understanding. You can offer forgiveness for the shortcomings of your parents, and you can begin to truly seek your purpose for coming here at this time.


A child's belief about themself, based on what they were told and what they learned growing up, remains with them through adulthood. Once you realize that everything that occurred during childhood happened for a reason; that you even selected your parents before you came to this planet, you are ready to dig deeper into the purpose of those painful lessons. Where are they directing you to go now?


There is freedom in not blaming anyone for your life circumstances and childhood experiences. Once you have cleared the lies about who you are, and the energy from your pain body, you are ready to discover your purpose. True happiness awaits. Be in the present moment. This is where you will discover unbelievable freedom and peace.

A New Day. A New Canvas.

The Next Chapter

Once you have finally made it to the end of a long and difficult process, it can be emotional, dramatic, exhausting, exhilarating all at the same time. The next morning you wake-up from your last day of such a project. It is a new day. A new chapter. A new canvas. 


The freshness is so palpable, of everything. On this first morning after that huge project, you don't know what to do with yourself. You are almost giddy. You need to sit and ponder for a time; to think about what to do next. Breakfast taste better than ever. The morning air welcomes you. The water you refresh yourself with is scintillating to your skin. You might even feel floaty. 


This is a healing moment; one to be grateful for, and give thanks to for being supported by the universe. You made it through, against so many odds. In this priceless moment, during this transitional state, reflect on what you learned. What lessons were you given along the way? The information that comes to you, while you sit in silence, will help guide you toward great spiritual awareness. Those ah-ha moments are priceless. 

Thich Nhat Hanh

 Thich Nhat Hanh, is a renowned Zen monk, and author of the book "you are here." This book has been my inspiration during the cold winter month of February, in the year 2019. I love his story of a time in his youth when he was in training at the temple, and his teacher asked him to do something for him. This is Thich Nhat Hanh's story about being mindful and practicing mindfulness.


    I loved him so much that I became excited, and I rushed out to do it. I was in such a hurry that I did not close the door properly, with 100 percent of my being.


    He called me back. "Novice," he said, "come here." I knew right away that something was wrong. He said only, "My son, you can do better." He did not have to teach me this a second time. The next time, I did walking meditation to the door. I opened the door mindfully, and I closed the door behind me perfectly.


    Since that day, I have known how to close a door behind me. It must always be done with mindfulness. Not for the sake of the Buddha, not for the teacher, but for myself. This is the way you create peace; this is the way you bring about freedom. You do it for your own happiness, and when you are happy, the people you relate with benefit from your presence and are happy too. A happy person is an important thing, because their happiness spreads all around them. You can be a happy person too and become a refuge for all the beings around you.

Meditation is Your Friend

It fascinates me knowing that everyone we come into contact with, throughout each day, has a purpose for coming into our life. Each individual is another soul we have been connected with in one form or another, maybe even for many lifetimes. The ones closest to us provide us the greatest material for learning, growing, and for clearing our own energy field: family members, husband/wife, our children.       


My family life as a child was not a good one. I do not have memories to look back on to remember fondly. And yet, my family is who I selected to come into this lifetime with. There was a time I felt cheated because of my young life experiences. I didn't have a mother and father that loved me, nor did my siblings have those kinds of experiences. My family and life circumstances as a child created the opportunity for me to become who I am today. For that, I will always be grateful. There is amazing freedom when you come to realize everything is so purposeful. Even the worst predicaments. 
   

When I think about the husbands I have had, three of them, and the children I have given birth to, two boys, now men, I have no anger or resentment for the way things turned out, or didn't turn out.  Before I became conscious I was not seeing things from this neutral perspective. I was angry, felt I had no worth, and was constantly working on something to keep me busy. This "doing" was to cover up my pain. I didn't know how to "Be." Now that I am conscious I can honestly say that I am grateful for the way I was raised and how my life circumstances have shaped me. 


Looking at my career of choice, first as a dancer/choreographer, and later as a school teacher, it is marvelous for me to realize the impact all of these people had on me over time: the different staff members that I worked with, the administrations, the children, parents, and other dancers and artists. Most powerful, my own family and children. Each person has impacted me at a cellular level. Each helped to bring me to the place I am today. For that I am very grateful. 


When you become conscious, you begin to see things from a neutral perspective. There is no judgement, no anger no comparisons or jealousy. You simply see and feel in a place of observation. You are aware of the body, but you know you are not your body. You are spirit.


Meditation is a wonderful tool for centering yourself. It is easier to practice, in the beginning, when you are not stressed. A guided meditation might be better if you are in emotional turmoil, at least until your practice is more natural for you. Here is a guided meditation that you might enjoy trying. YouTube has several wonderful guided meditations that I have used, especially when I was first developing my practice. Click this link, sit back or lay down and close your eyes. Don't fall asleep, but turn within. I think you might like Mooji. He has a wonderful voice. Enjoy.


Until next time,

A Visual Meditation

Today, I have a written out a visual meditation for you to try. The written words are a representation of how your energy field runs in, through, and around your body.


Everything is energy. You are energy. The body is only your vehicle while you are here on earth, to do what you came here to do, but you are not your body. You are the energy that flows through your body. Once you have realized the significance of that thought, everything changes. I will talk more about that at another time. This time I want you to focus on your energy field. To feel the real you.


My suggestion is that you read through the eight steps of the meditation before trying it so that it is clear when you begin. Then click the Meditation Music link, here. You can either read through the eight steps a second time, and visualize as you read through them, with the music playing; or you can visualize how the energy flows, after reading the eight steps for understanding. This way you can close your eyes, and let the music take you away. Either way will work, or try them both.


THE MEDITATION: 

1. Prepare your energy field: close your eyes and go within. Take a few deep breathes. Follow your breath for a minute. 


2. Now, visualize a grounding cord that goes from the space between your hips, at your first chakra, and travels down through the chair, through the floor, all the way to the center of the earth. Feel how the gravity anchors your grounding cord into place. 


3. Next, visualize bringing up the earth’s energy all the way to your feet chakras, found in the souls of your feet. Allow this energy to go through the souls of your feet, into the arches, toes, heel and ankles.


4. Visualize the earth’s energy coming up through your feet chakras and traveling up your leg channels to your pelvic bowl, where your first chakra energy center is located. Here, the earth energy fills the bowl to overflowing and spills out and runs back down your grounding cord. This cyclical action helps you to clear your energy field much like the function of a toilet. Any energy that comes up for you that you do not want in your energy field you can send down your grounding. If you have distracting thoughts, flush them down the grounding. 


5. Now that you are grounded, say hello to your body. I like to give my body a hug, and I see her as if I am looking into a mirror. Sometimes I kiss her on the cheek and tell her how beautiful I think she is if she needs that. This old girl has lived many decades without hearing words of assurance or been given feelings of being truly loved. Earlier on, I needed to do this several times each day. Once you are grounded and your body is reassured, your spirit is ready to connect with the Cosmic Consciousness, the God of your heart, the Oneness. 


6. In your mind’s eye, see the bright light force energy above your head. This is the cosmic consciousness that we are all apart. Bring this bright light energy down through the top of your head and see it travel down your two back channels. These channels are found on each side of your spin. Bring this light down to your first chakra, where you connected your grounding cord.


7. Allow the cosmic God light to mix with your earth energy. With the earth energy-God light mix, bring this energy up your front channels, back through the top of your head. See this energy disperse our the top of your head like a fountain that sprays out all around your body. This is the outer layer of your aura.


8. To complete your energy field, return to your front energy channels, at your breast bone, in the center of your chest. Visualize a juncture in your front channels, at your breast bone, and run the energy across your shoulders, down your arms, and out your hands. Now your energy channels are complete.


Can you feel your energy field moving through your body? In this way, we are all connected, because everything is energy.


Talk to you again soon ❤

Releasing the Pain Body

When you were a child, your parents taught you about life from the perspective of their own upbringing. They may have taught you that you are wonderful, or they may have taught you that we have no value.


When you practice daily running your energy, meditating, and seeing your own life's timeline, and the timeline of your parents, from a higher perspective, you see life as if it were a road map. Everything makes more sense. You have a clearer understanding. You can offer forgiveness for the shortcomings of your parents, and you can begin to truly seek your purpose for coming here at this time.


A child's belief about themself, based on what they were told and what they learned growing up, remains with them into adulthood. Once you realize everything that occurred during childhood happened for a reason; that you even selected your parents before you came to this planet, you are ready to dig deeper into the purpose of those painful lessons, and how they have shaped you. You are even then able to embrace the pain and finally let it go. Where does the pain direct you when look squarely at it? From this place you don't identify with the pain, but only look at it. Examine where the pain lives inside of your body. When you see your pain from a neutral perspective you can love it, and transmute it back into the universe.


There is freedom in not blaming anyone for your life circumstances and childhood experiences. Once you have cleared the lies about who you are, and the energy from your pain body, you are ready to discover your purpose. True happiness awaits. Be in the present moment. This is where you will discover unbelievable freedom and peace.


Namaste,

Angels, spirits, and guides are all around us. They love you more than you can imagine. They communicate with you all the time, even if you don't recognize the language that comes to you from them in the form of songs, signs, symbols, dreams, and through the people you encounter.


I have learned to see these symbols, colors, and signs, and can help you to to see and understand them too. Your challenges and struggles are gifts. They help bring about the creations you have called for yourself, even though it may not seem so when you are in the thick of something difficult in your life. Your life circumstances and challenges can seem, from your body's perspective, to be devastating when in the middle of them. When viewed from a spiritual perspective, you know that these events are happening for a reason.
