For your consideration…..

By now many of you probably skip right over the “Meditate/Pray” part of the blog each day. It is a constant. I try to change it up as much as I can but the bottom line is…..”We need to meditate/pray” each day. We need to go into the silence. We need to become one and whole with our authentic self.

Today the message came through….”The silence is deafening.” It seems that many people feel they can not meditate because of the “noise” or other chatter that keeps popping into their head.

You know what? That is ok. It happens to everyone. The quality of my own meditation varies greatly from day-to-day. But for every step backwards there is at least two steps forward. The key is consistency, persistence and gratitude.

Having said that, there are some things we can do to help with the “deafening sounds of our silence”. Many people start out with “guided meditation”. Or if not guided meditation, with some soft, peaceful, comforting music to put some productive noise into the silence. My caution here is that you pick something that will be long enough that you will not be interrupted when it stops.

Another thing you can do it give the chatter permission for a minute or two. Then “gather” it up and ask it to step out of the room. Indeed, before you meditate, ask your ego to step out of the room. I sometimes literally get up and usher it to the door and close the door after.

Why is there so much “noise”? Why is there such a battle going on?

It is because this awakening is so massive, so big, so important, all-powerful. There is a power shift happening. There is a massive amount of information trying to get through to us and just as massive an effort to stop it by use of the ego.

That is the big picture. The smaller picture is “life”. We are busy. We have a lot going on. Those lists just keep wanting to pop in and be addressed. But we have to ask them to wait. We will get to them later….after we have centered ourselves and reaffirmed who we are and how we are going to proceed with our life this day.

I think I have shared a couple of things I do. I gather my “chatter” up in a bag and a wonderful Santa Claus type man carries them off. I like him because I have to chuckle at his exaggeration of the burden. He proves his point. If there is too much for him, I have a freight train come in and I load up the cars and have them carried away.

There is another reason people do not want to go to the silence. I am told that there are people “afraid” of the silence just as there are people afraid of the dark. To those the message was this, “You are not going to find out anything you don’t already know at some level. AND it is the opposite of what you think. It is in the silence that you are NOT alone. Be not afraid.” Don’t be shy about calling your Guidance out on this. Before you go into the silence, call them forth. They are going to be there anyway but you need to feel the power and control of calling them. Trust me….they get it. They are excited to have you ask for them. (I think I will share a funny story about the angels later on in the message that will maybe demonstrate a little about our relationships with them.)

Finally, I am told that some people don’t meditate on a daily basis because they feel they are not “productive” at it. They feel because they are not good at it they will spend time doing something else where they “feel” they are productive. This is their answer to that. Do you want a saving account that earns “regular” or “compound” interest? The point is investing in daily meditation is the wiser use of your time. It may start off slow but the benefits compound into enormous benefits and savings including making us more efficient with our time.

Go into the deafening silence and conquer it.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

P.S. Here is my angel story. It actually happened in this morning’s meditation.

I have been taking a class, “Journaling with the Archangels”, where we practice identifying the different energy of the different Archangels. Until recently I could only consistently identify Archangel Metatron as a message giver.  He is the Archangel that asked me almost 2 years ago to do this blog. He gave me the name for it and the format for it. I would be less than honest if I said I took this assignment joyfully. Indeed, our relationship often has a little “bickering” going on. I never win so I don’t know why I persist. You need to know this background for the rest of the story to make sense.

I belong to an Angels Teach group. We were given a weekly challenge to find a word for 2013, ” whose vibration will help carry us through the entire year”. The word escaped me until this morning when it came through loud and clear…..”Gracious“. I was very excited to hear it especially since I had not really asked for it today. Then Archangel Metatron pipes up and says loud and clear….”That word came from ME.” Message received. LOL

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take……

-Meditate/pray…..enough said already.

-Drink lots of water.

-Take in at least 10 deep breaths of Mother Nature beautiful air.

-Try communicating with your Guidance. Ask for their help.

What made me smile yesterday……

-Sun…..all day.

-A really really productive writing day.

-A joyful Alex. (I am assuming her sister is too since I have NOT heard from her.)

-A beautiful message and picture from Paula. I am going to ask her if I can share the picture with you all.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
