I go deep within my inner stillness, and feel Divine Mind’s presence within me. I hold out my empty hands, symbolic of leaving preconceptions behind, symbolic of seeking True answers, and I ask, “What is the essence of healing?” These words resonate within me, as though in a vast cavern.  The word essence reverberates with these thoughts, “For what do I care most deeply?”; “What is my own essence?”; “What is my Truth?”; “Where is my deepest hurt, my pain, my sorrow, that all may be healed?”

Reflection

May I begin by saying that I am so very grateful to be doing this Journey of Healing at this time. It feels so right.

First, in not defining what I want to heal, or what I want to focus on, I’ve opened myself to allow (it seems) miscellaneous stuff that needs to be released. I’ve been having a lot of thoughts about my childhood, and it seems I am working through some alone-ness, some “ignored”, and some “not-heard” issues.

Second, I’ve given myself permission to make healing the #1 priority in my life. Nothing else is important to do. What is most important is to do my healing practices, which include but are not limited to, this Journey. This is not to say I am not doing other things–I am still working, doing my household chores, taking care of my family, but the perspective is that of first making the healing practices a priority.  I feel almost like I have established (or at am working at establishing) the energy of a “retreat” within my daily schedule. If you’ve been on a retreat, call to mind how it felt to have the time and space every day to breathe into your Self. That’s it.

Third, just a note about the healing practices I mentioned above: I have committed to doing earth, air, water, fire, and mind every day for this Journey. These are my standard practices, but I do not always do all of them every day. So for this Journey, the schedule is: First thing in the morning bathe and breathe (water, air). Then a fire ceremony before 10 am (fire). Some time later, exercise for at least 30 minutes (earth). And at some point during the day, do the Journey, and mantra/japa (mind). This is how I have created a retreat-like atmosphere for myself–it does not matter what else I do, as long as these things get done.

Finally, for many years, I have understood that when I am working with spiritual energies, and spiritual practices, there are often things that I “learn” that are not conscious, and not a product of what I think I am intending. I’ve learned that much of the time, I need to simply listen to the energy or the practice; it has more to teach me without words and in silence, if only I pay attention. This is especially true of fire. I have learned to silently say to It (whatever the practice at hand is), “Tell me of You”. Then I listen with my body, so to speak. I feel the movement within, the energy, the flow. This is not always something that I even have to focus on, or be intense about. Just asking asking for It to “tell me”, is enough for It to teach me at very subtle levels. Especially with yesterday’s and today’s Guiding Thoughts, I am feeling this especially.

Love to you. Happy Healing. Be well. I am glad you are here.

Divine Perfection- Healing (1.4.1)

Guiding Thought

I clear my mind of all past notions of what I think healing is. I erase all memories and stories from my thoughts, leaving only a clean slate. I turn my attention to my Inner Divine Mind and I ask, “What is healing”? I wait and listen in silence; I take my attention deeper into the vastness of Divine Mind and ask again, “What is healing?”, “What is wholeness?”, and “What is holy?” I wait and I listen. Feeling stillness, I simply pause in the quiet and await my answer.

Reflection

Welcome to Journey of Healing!

In case you missed the dedication, this Journey is dedicated to you. Before I begin each day, I invoke healing, and ask for you to receive it (in alignment with your Highest Purpose, for the benefit of All). I’d like to encourage you to do the same…it’s easy…just say this: I am my I AM presence and I am One with the I AM presence of All Humanity. As One breath, One heartbeat, One voice, One energy, vibration, and consciousness of Pure Divine Love, I invoke the highest, most intense healing energy available to humanity at this time. I ask the I AM presence of every man, woman, and child (and name specific people if you want to) to utilize this energy for the most intense healing possible for every person, and the entire planet, in alignment with Highest Divine Purpose, for the benefit of All. 

Imagine if everyone did that: 7.5 billion people invoking Divine Healing for 7.5 billion people. The world would change in an instant…

Now, let’s get busy!

I think I “began” the Journey when I wrote the Why. I had all these preconceived ideas about what I wanted for this Journey, how I wanted to approach it, what I thought healing should be. Then at the last minute, that all changed. I just want to take care of myself, whatever that means for the next 40 days. I love it when I am synchronized with the Journey without even knowing it.

Even now, I can think of things that I recognize as “healing”, or thoughts I have had about healing (like Wholeness, or Holiness), but I don’t even care; I don’t want to think about those things. I simply want to be here, happy to be alive, happy to know that for the next 40 days I can nurture myself, be gentle with myself, go easy on myself, and just let everything be OKAY. And if I do that, I am doing exactly what I am “meant to do”, as far as my commitment to this Journey.

It sounds so simplistic, so basic…and so right! I don’t even have to think! I wonder how that’s going to work out.

When I got to the second half(ish) of the Guiding Thought, and went inward to commune with Divine Mind, I felt as though I was immediately experiencing the answers to the questions, “What is healing?”, “What is wholeness?”, and “What is holy?” Going within to Divine Mind is/was the answer. Being in that space , communing with Divine Mind was the answer. The answer was not going to be a description or a definition. The answer was how it felt to commune with Divine Mind in stillness, in silence.

Communing with Divine Mind is the space of Wholeness, and Holiness. In that space, there is no need to even ask what healing is…it’s a moot point. When we know ourselves as, or in, the space of Wholeness and Holiness, we are Whole and Holy…”healed” in Divine Perfection.

The point is (for me at the moment), to bring that Whole-Holy space with me when I am not making a conscious effort to go within to that space. The point is to have such a strong connection with the Inner Divine that it does not take any special effort to be in that space.

That is, after all, the Truth. We are Whole. We are Holy, Divinely perfect…with nothing to heal.
