An Exercise in Raising Consciousness

meditation, breath, love, how to, inspired, inspiring, eileen caddy, psychic, energy, healing, happyI did a powerful meditation of breath last night, which left me feeling so good that I really wanted to share it with you all today. The exercise came about after reading the following inspiring and thought provoking words from Eileen Caddy:

“This raised state of consciousness is in the very air you breathe.”

Imagine for a moment, that all of the air around you is made up of the raised consciousness that you seek. The very air is the energy of love, joy, peace, happiness. Ponder the possibility that we are always surrounded by (and made up of) everything we are seeking to feel. When you have reached some level of awareness of this concept, breathe in.

Inhale love.

Open up to receive the lightest, highest and most expansive energy through your breath.

Fill yourself with it.

As you fill your being with love, joy and anything and everything else that you have been seeking to feel, then pause in the gentle space between breaths.

Bring your awareness to your impending exhale and become aware that with your breath you will share this energy tenfold.

You have the ability to spread love, joy and peace to all others with your breath.

Let yourself become so full of love that you become ready to spill over and with your exhale, share it with all others.

Release, breathing out all of the air from your body.

Smile and know that you are playing your part in raising the consciousness of the world.

Opening to See

These are some words I wrote after a spiritual awakening experience.

spiritual awakening, 444, repeating numbers, awake, wide awake, awaken, how to, life, help

Are my eyes open when my eyes are open?

You might think this silly but

we don’t know until we do.

I didn’t know for a long long time

til then one day I did. I saw

a secret world which lay

just beneath the surface.

Colours appeared from colours,

as if hidden in plain sight,

but now awash with sparkled light

I could smell and taste and hear them.

My eyes were opened with radiant sight

as love burst through every pore,

I’d risen from my sleepy state

and life was now upon me.

 

Expand our consciousness

story, inspiring, life, spirit, lesson, help, how to, I want to share a short and powerful fable which offers our minds a glimpse into the potential ability to expand our consciousness and our lives. I have come to learn that we tend to live within the confines of what we are willing to believe, and more and more I am realising that what I previously believed to be true about myself and the world I live in, may not be the way it really is.

Mostly I still play this game of life by the rules in which have been handed down to me, but the cracks are forming and the walls of my perceived foundation are beginning to crumble. I am on a mission to expand and spread my wings so far that they break through the confines of those walls, and when they fall, I will be able to experience reality as it truly is: miraculous.

The Story:

There was a mighty lion, Janro, who was born in a small zoo. As she grew, she made it a point to investigate, as best she could, all of the aspects of the world around her. All of the other lions in this zoo had been born in captivity as well.

One day, another lion was added to the group, but she was captured in the wild. When she spoke of the vast savannas, the tall, spreading trees, the birds in the sky, and the other wonders she knew of, Janro and the others scoffed. “How could this be!” They would exclaim.

“We’ve had plenty of time to investigate this world. We know precisely the limits of our cages, what other kinds of animals there are, where we came from, and how we get fed. What you are telling us is preposterous! Prove it!”

How to Channel -Intro Guide

how to channel, psychic, spirit guide, angels, higher self, life, spirit, connectI’m certainly not an expert but over the years I’ve picked up a few gems when it comes to learning how to channel.

I’ll start with answering a few common questions about channeling.

Can anyone channel?

Yes, we can all channel. It does take practice though, but we’re all so much more connected than we realise. It’s more a question of how many blocks we’ve put up in the way of our connection. For most of us, it’s a lot, and in order to channel and let the information flow freely, we need to clear out the limiting thoughts and blocks which stifle our connection.

Who do you channel?

Often it’s helpful to start with channeling your Higher Self, or your Soul, or the divine. But I’ve always found that spirit guides and angels are right there ready and willing as well. You don’t need to contact an intergalactic being first time, or an ascended master, just start with connecting into a higher part of yourself. Our guides and angels are always by our sides so when first starting out it’s a good idea to call them in for help! Whether you end up channeling them directly or not, I would certainly enlist their help.

How to start.

If you don’t meditate much then it’d be helpful to use a good guided meditation to get you deeply relaxed and connected. Most of us live our life up in our heads, in the conscious, thinking left brained part. The practice of channeling is all subjective, non-physical, right brained stuff.

Meditation helps us to let go of the ‘thinking’ and move into the experience.

Visualising white light is helpful as well, as it generally clears our energy and raises our vibration. Both aspects are essential when creating a clear connection. It will help to elevate you out of the traditional physical density or our world and it also serves as a method to move you out from your thinking mind and into your intuitive nature.

If you do meditate, then get yourself into a deep state and use some techniques to clear yourself and particularly your heart, third eye and crown, then elevate yourself energetically.

Some techniques you might employ are: imagine you are climbing golden stairs all the way up to the clouds. Then continue climbing til you emerge out the other side of the clouds. Imagine a beautiful garden there with a sacred meeting place.

Then call in your guides. channeling, how to be psychic, spirit guide, angels, higher self, soul wisdom

Once you feel calm and relaxed it’s time to call your guides, higher self, soul self, angels or whomever comes to mind. Call them to you. You might call out (just in your head) once or twice. Then ask for their help with chaneling your higher self.

Once you’ve requested help, let it go. Focus back on your breathing and just assume that help is there for you.

Then state to the universe (or to yourself or whomever) that you are connecting into your higher self for help, guidance and wisdom. Once again, assume this connection has occurred. Even if you’re unsure whether a connection has been made, thank all around you for the assistance they have offered you. This will help to strengthen your own connection.

Now, time for questions.

You can start with some closed questions, such as: Am I connected into my higher self now? Are my guides with me? Can you help my connection even further?

Just go with whatever response feels good. Once you have done a few yes or no questions, move on.

Ask some open questions such as: What do I need to know right now? Or, what is blocking me from connecting?

Then use your imagination. Pause once you’ve asked a question and allow for something to come up. It may take a few seconds so try to stay in a relaxed focus. Using your breath helps too. Just take big deep breaths and stay quiet.

Most people, when they’re starting out, will hear the response in their own voice. This is where a little faith is required. Just go with it, even if it feels as though you’re just talking to yourself or you’re making it all up.

If you wait til you’re 100% sure you’re channeling then you’ll probably never get there. Our imagination is the key which opens the door and leads the way.

How do I know if I’m really channeling?

The convincers that you’ve channeled usually come in the quality of the content you’ve received. And you might not even realise the wisdom of your conversation until afterwards. So just talk. Talk to yourself, your higher power, whatever it may be. Just talk for a while and see what comes up.

You can grab a pen, and opening your eyes slightly, write down whatever comes. Or I like to use a recording app on my phone and hit record. Then I talk freely, knowing I don’t have to think about it too much or pay too much attention because it’s all recorded.

You might surprise yourself when you listen back to it!

how to channel, angel, spirit guide, psychic, Give it a go and see what happens.

‘Cos you definitely won’t channel if you don’t even try.

For a long time I was sure I was just making it up, but the answers that I would receive would be so helpful and insightful, offering me a perspective I hadn’t seen yet, that it encouraged me to continue pursuing it.

It gets easier, but you’ve just got to go with it for a while first.

Have fun angels!
