Morning meditation is a practice for me. It can happen at any time when I first awaken, and sometimes these are moments that are totally overwhelming. 4 a.m. this morning was just that.
Several weeks ago I began an intentional practice of loving me and self care. My meditation was all about loving where I am at this moment, living in the NOW. We are on a journey of many kinds, and I like to believe that I am on a journey to joy. The polar opposite could be despair, and I have been there many times this past year alone. It all has to do with feelings, and feelings can change at any moment. But joy brings empowerment and freedom in all parts of life. All it takes is awareness and aligning with Source of where my journey is headed: joy. The difference is “allowing” or “resisting”; it is all up to me.
But to do this is to take an emotional journey rather than a journey of action which is hard for me to shift because I take action easily and many times too quickly. What I need many times is for someone to slow me down and help me shift to an emotional journey. You see, action takes time and it is often the reason why a journey of action gets left by the wayside, e.g. dieting, saving money, and more. But an emotional journey brings you a feeling of relief releasing fear for well being.
Over recent months I shifted from action to emotions, and my vibration has changed. And as a money coach, I have worked with clients who “want more money” and are ready to play the lottery, see who will be dying in their family, or change their investment advisor to “get more money”. It does not work because it takes too much time! Now, when a client makes the shift emotionally and expresses their feelings “I want to feel better about money”, they begin their shift of feelings within minutes, days, or weeks! The vibrational jump is smaller, and you and I are the only ones who can make any change, so start with the smaller vibrational shift in feelings.
Joseph Campbell shared “Follow your bliss.” Bliss can take a long time, but a pathway to bliss can be felt through your feelings. A pathway to bliss is a smaller, manageable shift in feelings and vibration. A feeling that will bring you a breath of fresh air is empowering and gives you hope. That relief is belief that there can be a change in the way you feel. And life wants you to feel good. You are not stuck, you just need to shift a little. Whitney Houstons’s rendition of the 1988 for the Seoul Olympics “One Moment in Time” is all it takes to be on the trail to be the best that you can be. But Olympians do not simply take action and find themselves in the winners’ circle. But give yourself that one moment in time to feel eternity, one step, one moment, at a time, and you may feel that you “are more than (you) thought you could be.“
Find your passion and spark your power and joy! Love the journey knowing that this moment is perfection and will bring love, opportunity, and know that you are right where you belong right now. You are in charge, “you are the captain of your soul” in the words of William Ernest Henley. Be here now feeling the moment until you feel the next right moment! Now is your time.
