Guiding Thought

My consciousness is the gateway through which Divine Love flows, materializing my infinite Supply. I am now conscious of my own Inner Divine Presence—Infinite Love—expressing through me, providing me with the means to be aware, to understand, and to know It as my Self– more and more!

Sharing

I have been learning to breathe energy as well as air. The energy is prana, chi, or ki. Breathing energy as well as air is kind of like a parallel experience to these Journeys—they have a lot in common. First, breathing energy as well as air is very natural and easy, like being Divine Love, but stuff gets in the way that first must be cleared out before I can actually feel the ease of breathing energy.

Second, I have to learn to be conscious of the experience of breathing energy, just like I have to learn to be conscious of my own Inner Divine Presence; if I am not conscious of it, it’s like I haven’t experienced it.

Finally, the more I breathe (with or without energy, with or without the consciousness of breathing energy), the more the breath itself teaches me about breathing energy, just like Infinite Love providing me with the means to be aware, to understand, and to know it as my Self.

I became aware of these things today while I was learning to breathe energy. It was like all of a sudden I was seeing myself experiencing the process. I watched the movie “Pacific Rim” the other day: two “pilots” link minds to operate these giant robots (Jaegers) to fight off an invading, advanced alien “dinosaur” race (Kaijus). There is a danger in linking minds with someone else, because if one of the pilots “loses their mind,” it puts them both (and the lives of the people they are fighting to save) at risk. In one scene, one of the pilots falls into a bad memory, losing her mind, following a memory rather than just letting it pass. The other pilot starts yelling, “Don’t follow the rabbit!”—meaning, don’t get lost in those thoughts, don’t follow them; watch them pass, don’t get sucked up and into them.

While I was breathing today, I became aware of “following the rabbit” in my own mind, and part of my mind was yelling at me, “Don’t follow the rabbit!” All of the sudden, I “saw” how following my thoughts completely inhibited the flow of energy, the ease of breathing energy, and the opening of my consciousness.

When I got caught up in following my thought a) my breath paused, like it does when I’m watching a scary movie. I had to remind myself, BREATHE!! This was the interruption of the breathing being natural and easy. b) I realized even though I have been learning to breathe energy for a long time, I haven’t been conscious of it. I realized this, because all of a sudden, I was aware of being conscious in a new way; it was just like I saw and felt it in a way I never had before. c) I realized it was because I have been breathing (and sticking with it) that I was learning something new—the breath itself got me to a greater consciousness of the breath and its energy.

After this very insightful breathing experience, I started the Journey, and then realized I was experiencing the same thing in the Journey as I just experienced with the breathing. a) The Guiding Thoughts keep the mind focused and not “following the rabbit;” the writing clears stuff out, so the Guiding Thoughts can be more prominent in consciousness. b) I have been learning to be conscious of my Divine Love Presence expressing through me, as me. I’ve been more aware of it more and more. c) The Journey itself is providing me with what I need to accomplish the purpose of the Journey: the Journey gives me the tools to do the job (so to say), and the job is getting done.
