Welcome to Day 54 of 365 Moments of Clarity Project
As we begin to wind down our Miraculous Relationship Meditation Journey, I reflect on the words of Deepak. He mentions that we journeyed to the love in the center of our being. This journey led us to many stops along the way. Each spot was a step to creating a deeper relationship with ourselves which then shined out into the world of our immediate relationships. That connection then spread to touch the connection of others creating a long reaching dynamic of love.
We realize that to start a domino effect we must be the first to fall. That is exactly how I viewed this series. I wished to improve my relationship with others and especially my mother and through descending into the practice every night, and giving myself fully to the learning experience, I have slowly become the love I was searching for. Now I am honored to spread what I have learned to the world.
If you want to live a miraculous life, then you will want to realize that “Love Begins with You!”
Day 21 of Miraculous Relationships
“Continue to focus your attention on the presence of miracles in your life, sustaining the practice of writing in your journal about the grace, gratitude, and love that is ever flowing in abundance when we see with the eyes of spirit. Dedicate today to being in the spirit of miraculous relationships. Let your true self ripple out and bless the world with your unique and special signature vibration of love and light. Choose love. Be love. Give love – now and always.”
My Journal Entries for Day 21
What have you found most valuable in the 21-day experience of Miraculous Relationships?
The highlight of the program for me was the journey within to discover the relationship with myself. This journey allowed me to recognize the relationship that others had with themselves. This recognition allowed me to be more open, honest and non-judgmental toward others.
The second most valuable experience was to see where my weaknesses are in relationships. I may not have looked at these weaknesses before or even admitted they were there. Yet, as I am blogging about all this work I am doing, I was very honest as to where my feelings were at and it held me accountable to the truth and beliefs I held inside. I learned that I needed to let go of somethings, adopt certain practices, such as the letter to my feelings, thoughts and beliefs, and that it takes time and education to move past some beliefs.
My perspective shifted away from ego tendencies and moved toward universal understandings.
In what ways have you become more loving to yourself?
This is an area that I believe I am quite skilled at. I tell the person in the mirror that she is awesome daily. This isn’t an egoist trait. This is truly believing in the choice I made before becoming a human. I chose this body, this life and this experience. When I tell the person in the mirror, she is awesome, I am trusting that choice I made before memory. I am believing in my spirit, my soul that I am exactly where I am supposed to be. This allows self love to be deep, honorable and connected.
My disconnect is not loving myself but loving others for who they are. What happened for me was more along the lines of understanding other people. It was recognizing that they made this choice as much as I did. I now honor and respect their choice as much as I honor and respect the choice I made. I ask the quesion, “why” less and instead trust their reasons are their own for why they are as they chose to be. If they decide to share, I am here to listen. If they don’t, the universe has other plans for me.
How is your meditation practice deepening your relationships?
Being still and silent gives me more time to calm my nervous system and my energy. This practice clears my thoughts to create more clarity around my choices and reactions to the relationships I have.
I listen more instead of assume. I ask people what they most need in the moment instead of preach what I think is right. We are all on a different path leading to our very personal destination. Embracing this idea opens up the communication of understanding and compassion. I become more curious instead of closed off by the actions of others. I seek to learn and be of service. It is these two traits, that deepen each of my relationships further.
If you feel drawn to share your story, I am always blessed to receive it. Namaste.
