There’s a special meditation I do to connect more deeply with my Higher Self. I was never a person to believe in Spirit, or God or Self with a capital S but then one day I decided to ask if there was really something there, a whole universe of wisdom inside of me, a voice, a God that connected everything and spoke only of love and infinite wisdom? It sounded to good to be true. So I sat down to disprove, took a few deep breaths, closed my eyes and said “Hello” internally and was immediately met with an answer, a response that sounded from a place not only deep in my heart, but deep in the heart of everything. I was astonished, I’d expected to sit, and to wait… for nothing, but once I opened up, even skeptically to hearing what was already there for me to access, the words flowed freely and I was swept away by the love, positiveness and wisdom that radiated from this place I never knew I had. From that day on I knew that if I ever felt lost, if I ever needed guidance, words of acceptance and love or just a little extra something I could always turn to this place, this place that sounds from my heart and from the heart of everything.
I very deeply wanted to share those words with you, or some of my favorite “quotes from God” if you will, but ever time I wrote them I just couldn’t press publish. There’s a line somewhere out here in the ether of the internet, a place that I have to draw between sharing in hopes of reaching someone who needed to hear my words, and pushing my spiritual practice too far out into the open, sharing things that really are only meant for me. So while I will keep my personal conversations with my Higher Power private I do encourage you to have your own, to find a quiet corner in your life and take a moment just to turn inwardly, to talk, and to listen to the voice that answers and to hopefully know what it’s like to connect with the most wise parts of yourself, the part that connects you to everything and everything to you.
The small idea that I will leave you with is this. Your heart is where the truth comes from anything that you hear coming from your heart is honest and pure, and the ears are where the ego lies, if your message feels as if it comes from your ears know that it is tainted by fear based human emotion and look deeper into yourself to hear the quiet, but true voice in your heart.
