The gathering doesn't need to be physical for the connection and upliftment to occur. And so I invite you, wherever you are, to join me in spirit on Sunday, April 10 at 5pm EST for a meditation on Newness. I will be sitting for 45 minutes, but you can join in at any time and for any length. It might be helpful to set your alarm clock, even if you're only planning on sitting for three minutes. Three minutes of stillness and silence amid a busy day can work wonders– it's quite miraculous really.
During this meditation, we might start with some deep breaths, and consciousness of our surroundings. Once we are present, it's nice to note some of the good things in our lives. And then we could consider the new moon that will have begun on Thursday, April 7, and the opportunity it provides for energizing plans for the upcoming month. The time is ripe for planting vibrational seeds. What do we want to do, see, feel, explore, receive, or give this month? In what new ways can we move closer to the radiant being of purity that is shining within each of us?
Feel free to print this post and use it as a guide on Sunday. And I would love to hear from you afterward, if you would like to comment on your experience in the section below. It would be wonderful to hear from you, and encouraging, for me and for others. Don't be shy!
I wish you well, and am so glad you are here on Earth, in your beautiful body, with your beautiful heart, reading my words. Spring blessings to you.
The Inner Diamond "Newness" card:
NEWNESS New leaves in spring glow with life. New thoughts do the same, and reap a new destiny.
In what ways have I let things grow stagnant? It might be fun to drop the old routine, or the problem I've been stuck on, and turn in a new direction. Invite a fresh perspective. I could create a radiant new thought, full of wonder, courage and possibility. Neuroscientists are proving that each time I do this, my brain is rewired so that it's easier to be positive the next time. Sages tell us that loving thoughts are far more powerful than negative ones, and the newest science is backing them up. (Investigate for yourself!)
Perhaps I do something I've never done before. I could take an alternate route to the same place, or go somewhere completely different. I could re-arrange my furniture. Enrol in a class. Listen to some new music. Is opportunity knocking? I take a risk and open the door. Am I drawn to something brilliant & glittering in the distance? I follow my intuition and move toward that which beckons true.
If I really want to shake things up, I start listening to people who seem to have what I want and whom I may have previously judged or envied. I’m ready to learn a thing or two!
I become a brave explorer, and I turn toward the road less traveled.
