The last couple of days, I’ve been thinking about what I’m doing and experiencing. If it is so important to keep transformation burning like a fire in my soul and being aware and open to messages about transforming myself each day, what are my daily efforts to remain awake and what is the nature of communications from Source?
I keep the fire burning by: meditating every day, exercising by doing yoga or Tai Chi related movements to tone and tune my body, recording the results of my meditation and the content of messages I’ve received in a journal, and reflecting on my fears as well as how I can respond to them in a positive and growth producing way. I also have a secret weapon to use when nothing else seems to work. I share my experiences and feelings with my wife, Nancy. Going public with a person who can be trusted is the ultimate way to stoke the fire by getting honest feedback and reactions to choices I’ve made and actions I’ve taken. It’s the equivalent of fresh air being pumped into the bubble of perception created by my biased viewpoint.
The different ways I receive messages from Source are varied and can seem frivolous and inconsequential. However, it’s the results that matter. Some of these are: loud and clear messages from my Inner Voice that come through as specific communications: do this, don’t do that, what about that or this person related to a significant life decision I’m considering. Or they may be tingling in my body, especially my neck, shoulders, arms, spine and lower legs signaling that my thinking or feeling in that moment is significant, correct or mistaken. My ears also serve as antenna that are receptors for incoming messages. When this occurs, I suddenly find myself playing with my ears by rubbing them, something I’ve done since childhood. Tuning into this experience by centering myself and becoming quiet and focused reveals messages I do not receive in any other way. What we call coincidences and synchronicity are also markers for incoming communication from Source. They require, however, that we suspend what we are doing, thinking or feeling to be open to the Universe. Otherwise the messages intended for us are not received.
None of these behaviors or ways of thinking and experiencing is supported by our culture so, while they seem inconsequential and easy to do, they are a daily, ongoing challenge to acknowledge and allow in our lives.
The fact that they are so is a message in itself.
