Lessons in a Lost Art

tarot, osho, guru, self-development, self-improvement, learn, meaningThis morning I pulled a ‘card of the day’ for myself from the Osho Zen Tarot deck, and was so amazed by the wisdom offered, that I wanted to share it with you all.

The card I received was “Receptivity” and the poetic wisdom accompanying it included the following:

“Listening is one of the basic secrets of entering the temple of god. Listening means forgetting yourself completely – only then can you really listen. When you listen attentively to someone you forget yourself completely.

If you cannot forget yourself, you never listen. If you are too self-conscious about yourself, you simply pretend that you are listening – you don’t listen. You may nod your head, you may sometimes say yes and no, but you are not listening.

When you listen you become just a passage, a passivity, a receptivity, a womb: you become feminine. And to arrive one has to become feminine. You cannot reach god as aggressive invaders, conquerors. You can reach god only, or it is better to say, god can reach you only when you are receptive, a feminine receptivity.

When you become yin, receptivity, the door is open.

Reading this passage got me wondering how often I completely forget myself when in the company of another?

I know the experience of this, I do it when I sit before a client, however why do I reserve this experience mostly just for client sessions? What would it be like to open up so completely, forgoing any need to have the next thing to say in a conversation?

Right now is the time to open fully, glide into vulnerability and fall so deeply into yin that we forgo ourselves in sacred union with another – with any other. All other beings on this planet are worthy of us, our attentiveness and our openness.

When was the last time you let yourself be open, bare and vulnerable with another?

When was the last time you let yourself have nothing to say?

Let’s take care to open, be love and listen.

A Technique to Discover What Lies Within

This simple technique will only take a minute or two, and will help centre you deeply inside of yourself, with the intention to discover what’s really within you.

incredible-nature-photography-25

Gaze into the photograph.

Let your eyes wander between what is visible above the surface and then down to the mysterious beauty below the surface.

Breathe in a deep full breath of air through your nose, filling your lungs and expanding your abdomen.

Exhale all of the air through your mouth, as if you’re blowing out smoke from the depths of your body.

Let it go. Let everything go and gaze even deeper into the picture. Let your eyes go blurry and just breathe.

Continue oxygenating your body while your eyes move between what is above the surface to what is down below the water.

Ponder, when you look at the rock visible above the water, do you have any inclination of what may lie beneath?

What beauty is within you, that you are not seeing?

What do you think other’s experience when they encounter you? What do they see?

As you reflect upon these questions begin to imagine a rich world within you.

Let your inner world be reflected back to you through pictures, colours and shapes in your mind, just like those in the picture.

Imagine that world filling you up.

How does it appear?

What does your inner world contain?

Spend the next few moments in wonder of what may be within you, that you’ve been overlooking and not seeing.

What appears when you don’t limit yourself or put yourself down.

Get curious.

It’s not often we allow ourselves to be mesmerised by wonder – especially about ourselves.

 

This minute meditation gets more powerful the more often you do it.

With love and wonder,

Repeating Numbers – let’s work them out

angel-numbers-repeating numbers, sequences, 111, meaning

It’s clear so many of us are seeing repeating numbers and previously I’ve done articles (click here to read or click here) regarding what the numbers mean in a general way. However I feel it’s time to ramp it up and get more specific.

What are YOUR repeating numbers telling YOU?

Repeating number sequences is a language the spirit realm and divine universe is using to communicate to us. Initially it’s a good thing to acknowledge to the universe or your spirit guide or angels that you seeing the numbers, then they will be able to progress with this form of communication. You can just do that in your head or out loud.

Next, ask your divine beings to offer you help in understanding what they mean. Ask them (out loud or in your head) to help make it more obvious for you, now you’re aware they’re using this form of communication with you. Do this when you see the numbers and also when you’re just thinking about them.

Then start a journal or notepad page and list down the number sequences you see the most, leaving a big space next to each one. Write down any words that come to mind next to each repeating number sequence. You don’t need to analyse this too much, just look at the numbers and notice what images or words come to mind. Also note down how you feel when you look at that number – what emotions come up?

Do this same process the next time you see the repeating numbers. For example: if you glance at the clock right on 11:11 quickly grab a pen and paper, and write down what you’re thinking about and how you’re feeling, and any other words or thoughts that come to mind.

The more you do this, the more you’ll start to become aware of patterns and messages. This process is really interesting if you can do it for a week or two then look back over it and read all the messages together, you’ll be able to decipher the repeating numbers language more easily and start making more sense of it all. Also a bigger picture message usually presents itself which can cause a huge shift in awareness.

Have you noticed any specific messages coming through in your repeating numbers? What are they telling you? 

You can talk to the angels – here’s how.

Let’s get one thing clear, making a connection to the spirit world is possible and can be a reality for all of us. Whether we’re aware of it or not we all have this ability.

It might help to think of it as a seed within all of us, that some people water, feed and nourish and others don’t. As we know with plants and grasses they have the ability to grow without any care or nourishment provided, such as out of cracks in walls or pavements, but sometimes they need a lot more nurturing and attention to get going.

If you’re interested in making a connection yourself, then initially you need to just allow the possibility to be there first and then start working on it. Give it a chance to develop before cutting it off and believing that you can’t do it.

It’s easy to just believe that it’s possible for others and not you, it’s harder to give it a go again and again and again, even when it seems nothing is happening. It’s harder to persist and decide you want to work at something you don’t even know for sure is possible. Choose this route 🙂 and a whole new world can open up for you.

If you do choose to dare and give it a go, the most powerful place to start is with your own heart. Beings, spirit guides, loved ones who have passed over, and angels all vibrate at a very high frequency. And we, alas, as human beings vibrate at a lower, much denser frequency. This is how we can exist all around each other but so many people aren’t even aware there is more than just our physical reality, the most dense of all, existing.

So if you feel like this is something you really want to do, then start with hanging out with your heart. Breathe into your heart space and notice what it feels like when you feel loving towards someone or something. What does that physically feel like inside your body? What else do you notice?

Do you feel tingling? Buzzing and flutters in your chest? Like something is gently touching your hair, or blowing on your hand?

The higher you can get your vibration to be the easier you will find connecting into the spirit realm.

An exercise to try:

Take a few deep breaths and set the intention to make a strong connection to your love energy centre. You can also ask for help with this – just say – I call out to my angels and guides, and ask for your assistance with helping me feel love within. 

Next focus your attention on your heart chakra – the centre of your chest. Continue breathing as though you’re breathing right into that spot and blowing it up like a balloon.

What do you feel when you do that?

You might feel like your heart is hard or like there are walls, continue breathing into that space until it starts to soften. You can also breathe out any heaviness that you carry in your heart.

Breathe in love, breathe out resistance. love how to angels, healing, spirit guides, how to, learn

Then say aloud or in your head:

I invite in my guardian angel and ask for your help to make a strong connection to the spirit world.

I open up all my senses, including my knowing. 

Notice how you feel as you do this. Continue breathing into your heart the whole time, and notice any sensations. I usually feel tingling going up and down my back, and flutters in my heart when the angels are connecting in with me.

You might feel inclined to repeat the above statement 3 times, even though you’ll probably notice a sensation or feeling before you’ve managed to get it all out.

What do you notice?

Another way to do it is to ask for help from someone. I help people all the time to make real, tangible connections to the spirit world in one-on-one sessions via skype. And yes, even people who have never connected in before or don’t believe they’ll ever be able to.
