INNER CONNECTION IS KEY
Awakening to our relationship with our divinity and the creating our reality from divine consciousness is a critical aspect of our evolution during these times of change. Making this inner connection opens us up to a greater awareness of ourselves as the real creators of our lives. Through the conscious energetic and physical sensation of aligning with our inner goodness we come into living more and more in a state of well-being, where thoughts are sweet, good and timing is perfect; where our point of attraction in a law of attraction universe is our hands and we feel love and appreciation for our part in humanity’s expanding consciousness. Even when we encounter challenges our focus is on meeting it through connection with the broader inner knowing of our truth and power, not according to others’ opinions, but from that place of love and appreciation for our own path of love and expansion.
Once we make connection with the divine within a change comes over us. We begin to see ourselves in what Thomas Merton called the ‘light of sacred beauty’. When I work with people in crisis I refer to it as the missing light in life, knowing oneself as the majestic, human-divine being. They might be going through trying times but as they surrender feelings of resistance and hurt they hold the promise of awakening within their hearts that leads to liberation from fear within themselves. Coming into conscious connection with our inner light is not only felt by and for each one of us individually, but in our connected humanity it contributes to the uplifting of all life on Earth.
COMING INTO CONNECTION WITH THE DIVINE SELF MEANS…
Conceptually, we are talking about the sacred union between your human and Divine Self. But it is really much more than that because in experiencing that connection we consciously come into feeling and knowing a very focused frequency of love. In a sense, connecting with the Divine Self is a process of transformation. It is taking the seed of consciousness that is already inside of you and has been there forever and growing it to become stronger. It is allowing your higher consciousness to speak to you, listening to that inner voice as it asks you to relax and trust everything to unfold for you in positive ways instead of being afraid of losing control. Rather than just passing through life, you live aware of the flow of the higher frequency energy and conscious of whether your direction or path is in accordance with the wisdom that dwells within you.
HUMANITY AND EARTH ARE INTERCONNECTED IN THE VIBRATORY SHIFT EXPERIENCE.
The consciousness Shift humanity is experiencing is extremely relevant to the survival of the planet and all life forms. We are interconnected by the very nature of our physical composition as well as our inter-dependency and co-existence. Through awakening our awareness of and establishing conscious connection with the Divine Self we embody a higher energetic vibratory rate. Because of that focus in the higher frequencies the energy grows in the quantum field accelerating the greater good of the planet and all life forms. For example, creating a life enlivened by the conscious awareness of unconditional love leads us to choices that reflect that love. Exploring what unconditional love means for each individual brings about more sharing of unconditional love through our perceptions of who we are and the choices we make about how we live in the world. Compassionate, nourishing, kind, caring, uplifting – these are critical to our evolution and survival. When we take responsibility to bring more peace, harmony and love into our lives we are assisting to dissolve the divide between the human mind and the cosmic consciousness of love.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE WAYS WE CAN LEARN TO NURTURE OUR AWAKENING AND CONNECTION WITH THE DIVINE SELF?
Life is a gift and we come to earthly life with the seeds of our divine nature within us. Take time and be out in earth nature. Sit by the lake, river, ocean or stream. Listen to the bees, birds and rustling of the trees. Remind yourself when you experience the power of the natural world, there is power within you as well.
Also, remember that Intention is how everything we desire is created. Our thoughts, emotions, imagination and words have creating and healing power. Here are some other ways you can set your intention to nurture the awakening connection with the Divine Self:
· Journaling is a way to focus your awareness and feeling and build momentum.
· Ritual is a wonderful uplifting experience.
· Meditation practice trains the mind to quiet. The inner space that opens is the doorway to connection with the Divine Self.
· Mysticism can guide through the passages of life with the wisdom of sages.
· Read about mythology. Joseph Campbell is an excellent source.
· Music is good for the soul and can carry you to expanded consciousness.
· Make time to consciously relax and open your mind.
· Shamanistic Journeying can give you information and show you your guides along your path.
· Group meditation is a great way to experience transcendence.
· Lucid Dreaming can provide insights and premonitions about your life.
· There are sacred arts for nurturing the new energies of the divine feminine and divine masculine, which are inclusive, healing and altruistic.
One of the major benefits to connecting to the Divine Self is the empowerment that comes from opening to and receiving the assistance of the universe to adjust more easily to the dance of opposing forces experienced everywhere, whether it’s between the light and darkness, love and fear, abundance and loss, or in relationships. An integrated Divine Self does not mean that you are without fear, discord or suffering, but it means that you have balanced it and therefore neutralized it with its opposite effects. This brings peace, satisfaction and joy, and allows you to shift to a new consciousness level. Once you are aware of your connection and ability to shift into better feeling thoughts about a situation it becomes easier to slow negative momentum and choose a new perspective.
