“Look Up”

June 14, 2010 at 7:02 pm 2 comments

The past couple of weeks, I’ve just been off.  Despite my best efforts, I wasn’t feeling deeply connected to Source – evidenced by my cranky, moody, poor-me outlook.  A series of events helped lead me back to my True Self, and here’s how:

Starry Night

Last Wednesday, a Shaman friend, my sweetie and myself went out to the country to star gaze. We spent about an hour laying on a blanket in a field, with fireflies zipping around us like shooting stars.  When I was young, I could see the stars from my bedroom window and my dad took us star gazing quite a bit. They are the first things I remember falling in love with and I always feel comforted to be able to soak up their light.  I felt a peace I hadn’t been able to find for a week and a half, but sadly, it didn’t stay with me as much as I would have liked the next day, which led to:

Gratitude Lists

I decided that one of the ways I could help get my positive perspective back was to make a list of 10 things I was grateful for.  I’ve been doing that every day since, which shows me just how much I have to be happy about, and the gratitude just starts pouring out.

Joey Klein Technique

This past Friday, I went to a Joey Klein event where he explained how to move past negative emotions to find positivity in any situation. The technique he taught was essentially this: Imagine yourself in a tube of light, which you ascend, connecting with Source as a bright light. From that sacred space, examine the situation that is causing you trouble and allow any negative emotions to arise.  Next, ask yourself what positive outcome could result from this situation and after you have meditated on that, imagine yourself and your problem dissolving in the bright light of Source.

I could tell all this was starting to take effect when I woke up the next morning overwhelmed with sadness at my previous ingratitude and full of love for my sweetie and Spirit and everything in the Universe that I couldn’t stop crying for a while.  The next morning, I had a similar wake-up, and the gratitude I felt when I wrote my list was even more powerful than it had been before.  I was starting to come back to myself, but hadn’t quite yet made it when the Universe sent me a

Thunder Storm

Here in Missouri, as in other Midwestern states, we get some powerful thunder storms, and last night was the most incredible one I’ve ever seen. I stood outside for about 20 minutes watching the rain pelt down, listening to the long, rolling thunder, and watching with dazzled eyes as the near-constant lightening was strobing in my eyes.  My awe and wonder and gratitude were overwhelming in that moment, and I added many tears to the storm.

Suddenly I knew that all the things I just told you about were leading up to one complete lesson my Higher Self/guides were teaching me about how to stay true to my True Self and after sobbing a bit more into the storm, I ran inside and wrote this in my journal:

The star gazing, Joey’s lesson, the gratitude list, and how THE MOST LIGHTENING-INTENSE THUNDERSTORM I’ve ever witnessed are all teaching me the same lesson: LOOK UP!!!

Look up physically because gazing at the sky relaxes and soothes me, helps me take new perspective, and is a major representation and vehicle of Divinity and divine messengers (birds, bees, butterflies, stars, bats, etc.)

Look up emotionally by CHOOSING to find a positive in every challenge, a new way to grown, a new reason for gratitude and joy.

Look up spiritually by asking Source to keep my channel clear, asking Gaia to keep me in balance and asking my Higher Self to lead me.

It was a lesson I sorely needed to learn and I’m so grateful for the teaching.

The love I feel effortlessly flowing from my heart is a blessing I deeply cherish.

    This is a beautiful witness, and I identify with every word. Lying on that blanket with you and Matt, gazing up at the stars–wordless, priceless, sublime.

    I was probably driving home from work last night during that incredible storm, the same time you were standing outslde. It felt like a Cosmic RotoRooter for the clogged-up pipes of my soul.

    I’m so happy to hear you’ve come back Home inside to your Bliss!
