Dialling Home To Heaven – Reverence in Meditation

Following on from the appearance of The Sacred Chalice in the Oracle at the weekend I thought it prudent to inject a little reverence into this week’s posts. I hope you enjoyed Monday’s insight and that the angelic grace visualisation helped to settle any disturbance you may be feeling as a result of the current energy flow.

Reverence is something that gets lost when you have fun with spirituality and you should definitely have fun with it. Life is supposed to be fun and God, The Creator, Source, Tao, whatever you want to call Him/Her/It isn’t judging you for it… you will not be smited for calling The Almighty “Big G” as I do, nor will the angels forsake you because you meditate whilst sat on the loo!

When things get a little scary though, when your world tilts slightly and you lose perspective and connection due to the internal mess that comes with change, that’s when reverence, applied sincerely, is like dialling home to heaven.

Sacred practice is a part of living a spiritual life: meditation or prayer for example, daily communication with your higher power is essential for maintaining a healthy spirit… for the most part it’s like calling mum and dad from your travels, laughing, joking, just checking in, but applying reverence is like turning up at the door and saying softly “Mum, Dad, we need to talk. I’m in trouble and I need help.”

The atmosphere instantly changes and God seems to stop what He’s doing for just a moment (and mum’s no longer washing up whilst your chatting, she’s sat at the table giving you all her attention, dad’s put down the paper and is staring intently into your eyes watching for signs of what’s happening in your mind)… everybody is paying attention… because you are treating this moment with a sacred trust and a sense of importance.

God’s always listening. He’d much prefer you to be happy, tuned in to the part of you that is Him, knowing you’ve got this, following your bliss and just checking in to say ” Hi, everything is flowing smoothly” but when you shift gear and really dial in… when reverence replaces revelling, that’s when you come home and recognise you are loved, and your Divine Parent will always be there to lift you up, bail you out and put you back on your playful path.

Light a candle, take a moment… and start dialling home to heaven.

Detach, Define and Dance

Today apparently is the exact centre of the year with the same number of days behind us as there are in front. It’s as though we’ve reached a pivotal point, literally, a balance point or natural turn. Usually that turn occurs on the solstice but as we use a calendar that merely tips a nod to the natural solstices and equinoxes and have done for centuries, our internal clocks are somewhat misaligned. No matter, we work with what we’ve got.

The days leading up to this non-celebrated event have been poignant for me as I’ve subconsciously reset my own personal targets and shifted gear to ensure I’m on track with personal goals and agendas… they in fact have been refined or even redefined as I’ve set about questioning the “why” in each case. The why is the platform on which we build a dream, it’s the driving force behind every action and its the compass keeping us on track. My why has shifted after some deep internal work, liberating me from a multitude of doubts and fears, my “I want this” has become “If God wants it for me it will come to pass.” The results have been miraculous so far, at least in my whole attitude and level of internal peace… God, it seems, has gone all out to get me what I want just simply because I let Him.

If you’ve read some of “the pear” posts over the last week you’ll know that my life goal has been waved in front of my eyes for me to turn my attention to bringing it to fruition now, and when life reminds you you have a looming deadline, like hitting the halfway point in the year when your natural tendency is think “Shit! The year’s half done,” then internal panic could set in pretty darn quickly. Negative statements like: I’m never gonna achieve this, could cripple you into inaction and even depression if you allow the fear to creep in but there’s an alternative that involves recognising that you just cannot do this alone…

Letting go and letting God is a terrifying notion when you’re a control freak but once you actually get the hang of Principle 2: I AM Detached, the whole process becomes a dance with angels as they lift you up and carry you to each desired check point along the road to the goal. When you open up a dialog with Source energy and confirm your wish and your why, if the wish is for your highest good and the why is a noble one then your path will be filled with synchronicities that make you wonder why you ever doubted in the first place…. you were just focused in the wrong direction.

In the last couple of weeks, life has had its ups and downs, my home is in turmoil with building work going on, my work schedule has gone to pot along with it, but do you know what? I feel content that all that is happening around me but none of it is happening to me…. I AM Detached. My plans are moving along at a steady pace and fun is happening as standard.

The year may be half over, but there’s still half left… detach, define and dance your way with angels to your desired destination.

God’s in charge of the journey… so let Him be.

Distant Echoes

Every morning I call in the angels to help guide me through the day whether I feel I need help or not. This morning Archangel Azrael asked me “Will you let us help you today?” I replied: “I will always let you help me but today I’m unsure what it is I need help with.” Azrael’s response was one I had not expected, he simply said “Are you at peace?”

It’s been a strange morning, I awoke early and turned over to go back to sleep. The feeling was not one of depression believing I had nothing to get up for, it was one of gratitude that today I had the opportunity to have a lie in. My first thought upon waking was a random memory of a summer day, a yellow tricycle that by today’s standards would be considered a health and safety hazard, psychedelic hotpants and legs that went on forever sporting scuffed knees, bare feet on weather-smoothed York stone flags… and I remember thinking that was almost 40 years ago, but I had no clue what triggered the memory other than the carefree pure innocent delight of being without concern for anything other than now and not needing to….

“Are you at peace?”

I searched myself for the answer. I feel calm, I thought; I’m not missing anything, other than the usual things that life propels you towards but even those seem little less than distant echoes for now; am I at peace?

I don’t feel un-peaceful (if that’s even a word), but if I search myself, I don’t feel peaceful either…

I found the words to answer Azrael, “I feel lost.”

“Then will you let us help you?”

“Is it not ok to feel lost? I’m not afraid here, I’m not uncomfortable, I see no reason to shift in any direction… I am always grateful for your assistance and I will never turn it down, but what is it I require assistance with?”

“Are you at peace?”

Sometimes it takes a higher perspective to elevate the feeling from detachment to contentment, from contentment to peace and from being lost to feeling joy in the centre of exactly nowhere. Nowhere, everywhere, right here, right now.

Principle 2: I AM Detached

May angels help you find your peace.
