The other day, while I was offering a session to a client, an image came into my mind of all the people who would benefit from this woman’s return to health. Of how much kindness, love, and support, she would spread in the future.
I started applying that to my own sittings: feeling the connection with everyone and how my well-being was also their well-being. It made my practice so much richer.
Often, when we practice meditation or an energy healing modality, we focus on our problems, on what needs to change or improve. We hold this so tight in our awareness that releasing it becomes a Herculean (if not impossible) task. We get frustrated, and may even leave our practice aside for lack of results.
Or we may feel selfish for investing time to work on ourselves instead of helping others or doing what society labels as productive. We forget that “if we don’t have tea, we can’t offer tea.”
So, for once, let’s focus on that tiny seed of joy we all carry inside—yes, it’s there, even if it may take us some time to find it. Let’s feed its growth with the warmth of our attention, allowing it to spread throughout our whole body and overflow into our surroundings, touching the lives of our loved ones and everyone with whom we come in contact.
How would that transform your practice? What ripple effect can you envision? I would love to hear about your experience.
Love and light,
