|Connecting with the Divine and Healing Exercise
Connecting With the Divine
In this vast and wonderful universe there are an endless array of tools and techniques of which to become aware. Upon discovering
that there is ‘more than meets the eye’ we begin to build our knowledge about, and honing our skill in using the tools of the universe.
These are often called the Universal Laws. Scientists have discovered many of these Laws, such as gravity, the speed of light, the
rhythms and patterns of the planets and moons, etc. One such law being popularized right now is what we call ‘the law of attraction’
- that upon which we focus is created. Other laws known for ages by the sages, are still being scientifically proven.
As individuals, our lives change forever when we discover that everything, both great and small, is connected by virtue of the fact
that every THING is simply energy. All energy is connected. This is what allows us to communicate across time and space with
healing energy; communication from mind to mind, and so on.
Because there is so much to learn about the universe we live in, we can spend a lifetime exploring, learning, and making use of this
amazing information. Our lives are generally improved and enhanced when we study and practice being in harmony with the
What can sometimes happen, however, is that we come to believe that the discovery, study, and practice of the Universal Laws are
the means by which we reach ultimate enlightenment. While we do have some pretty amazing experiences once we discover that
we are not divided by time and space, and in fact, are not divided at all, this is not the same experience as connecting our soul
DIRECTLY with the Divine Source of creation.
Sages and Adepts for centuries have taught and shown us that there is a guaranteed way to make THE connection and that is
through the regular practice of silence, inner contemplation, or meditation. As you read the quotes below, please keep in mind that
you may not prefer the word "God", but may use whatever term resonates with you.
The Bible says in 1st Corinthians, Chapter 13, Verse 12: of living in this body it says: ‘for now we see through a glass, darkly’; and
of making the Divine connection it says: ‘but then face to face’.
In ‘The Bhagavad-Gita-As It Is’ Chapter 8, text 8: “he who meditates on Me as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, his mind
constantly engaged in remembering Me, undeviated from the path, he, O Partha, is sure to reach Me.”
In ‘Mans Eternal Quest’ by Paramahansa Yogananda, page 7, he says: “but greater than activity, devotion, or reason, is meditation.
To meditate truly is to concentrate solely on Spirit. This is esoteric meditation. It is the highest form of activity that man can
perform, and it is the most balanced way to find God."
In ‘In the Sanctuary of the Soul’ by Paramahansa Yogananda, page 50, he also says: “Learn to be still in body and mind, for where
motion ceases, there begins the perception of God.”
Meditation: even this too can be like a maze to uncover the method that will serve the purpose. Some say there are as many types
of meditation as there are people. There is Zen, Taoist, Biblical, Transcendental, vipassana, primordial sound, mindfulness….the list
is quite long. All are wonderful for their purpose.
So, what then do we do to achieve that goal, to merge into that Oneness, to BE that Light and nothing else, to truly KNOW who we
First: seek after it with all your heart.
Second: trust that you will be led.
Third: be willing to do what is required.
THE TRUTH is always free.
There is no earthly price tag. One does not actually even need a teacher. However, if you are like the average person, our lives are
steeped in ‘the world’, living, surviving, trying to find our way in this endless maze of life’s offerings.
So, teachers are sent. We may have many in one lifetime. If we seek whole-heartedly, trust that we will be led, and are willing to do
what is required, we are shown The Way. It is individual, personal, tied to no group or organization, and it is free.
With Love and Light,
A Healing Exercise
Begin by closing your eyes.
Visualize a white light overhead sending it’s warm rays upon you….
Now deeply inhale, pulling the light through your crown and exhale through your heart.
Do it again.
Say to yourself: ‘We welcome in our sacred space angels of the light, to protect us as we open to
their guidance and wisdom for our highest spiritual, mental and physical well being.’
Now, with your eyes still closed, pretend, much like a child, that the person you wish to see healed
(which may be yourself) is standing before you in your minds eye.
Do you see that person?
Now, see that person glowing, radiating perfect health in peace, love and joy.
This is the ultimate truth, but sometimes we are afraid to access this space because it is easier to
be less than who we truly are, especially if people don’t expect it from you.
Now, send light from your heart to that person’s heart like a laser beam. This is your love. Then,
telepathically, state that you see him/her in perfect health….
Just let the light beam continue until you feel done.
And it is so.
My friends, it is through the establishment of the lovely clarity of mindfulness that you can let go of
grasping after past and future, overcome attachment
and grief, abandon all clinging and anxiety, and awaken an unshakeable freedom of heart, here,
I have been a seeker
and I still am, but I
stopped asking the
books and the stars. I
started listening to the
teaching of my Soul."
