An Exercise in Giving and Receiving

givingreceiving

Affirmation: I AM aware of the thoughts and energy I offer the world. For what I give out to the world I receive. I AM the creator of my life.  

I’ve been studying A Course in Miracles and the lesson I just completed was on Giving and Receiving.

When you think about giving and receiving there are times when we able to give more, and other times when we are put in the position to need to receive more.  At one time or another it may not feel completely balanced but overtime life does seem to create a balance with giving and receiving. Also we need to keep in mind that sometimes things come in different ways. The energy is the same, its just that the form it chose to manifest in was different based on an individuals perceived need.

 A Course in Miracles teaches us that what we give out comes back to us in equal amounts. Whatever you offer is returned to you. The idea here is to be truely conscious in what you give out, how much you give and the feeling attached to it, because what you give comes back. This isn’t just centered around physical items, help, etc. This includes what you think.  Think negative thoughts, those get sent out and that energy comes back to you in one form or another. Think positive thoughts, those get sent out and that energy comes back to you. Now this can really put things into perspective. Think of all the thoughts that run through your head every day. The ones you latch onto, the ones that quickly pass by, the ones you voice. Listen to what you are thinking and/or saying because whatever it is, is energy you are giving and that energy is coming right back to you like a boomarang.

So the question here is: how much love energy are you giving out throughout the day? And by love energy I mean unconditional love, acceptance. Catch yourself throughout the day and notice what you are giving out. If it’s something you wouldn’t want back, stop yourself and change the energy.

Here’s the exercise from A Course in Miracles I’ve been practising.

Affirm the things that you would like to have given to you and offer them to others.

  • I offer everyone peace.
  • I offer everyone love.
  • I offer everyone success.
  • I offer everyone prosperity.
  • I offer everyone support.
  • I offer everyone compassion.
  • I offer everyone wealth and financial abundance.

As you recite what you give out feel how much of it you are giving. Then pause for a moment to allow the universe to give that energy back to you. Take your time with each affirmation and really feel what you are giving and receiving.  Do the exercise in front of the mirror and repeat it when it comes to mind as you go about your day.

My Higher Self

Altar by Living Fae

Affirmation: I AM my higher self.

Try saying that outloud at least 1o times. Let it sink in. Absorb the idea that you are… I am my higher self. What does that mean to you?

I picked up Dr. Wayne Dyer’s Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting audio book today. Then I hopped in the car and began to drive back down the LA freeway to the beaches with my mom. I put the first CD in and began to listen to what Wayne had to say. While I listened intently to every word my mom fell asleep. Every so often she would wake up and yell out, “Wayne’s yelling at me!” or “Where am I?” It was pretty amusing at the time. The funniest part was she seemed to wake up and yell those phrases at the most perfect moment. It seemed to align with everything I was hearing him say.

As I continued to drive Dr. Wayne began to discuss the notion of the higher self and how choosing this course, listening to his CD, was really about committing to the idea that you are your higher self now. As he spoke of this I felt myself aligning with everything he was saying, and at the same time I could feel my ego hesitate on the concept.

When I began my study of uniting with my higher self I was always looking at it in a way that it was me, but it was a me I was working at becoming. A me I communicated with, but was somehow not where I was now. Let’s say I saw this me in another life or dimension. I wasn’t there yet. It was a goal or a journey I was taking to get there. But then Dr. Wayne had me take a new look at it. As I said the words outloud in the car, “I AM my higher self,” I began to have a new understanding of who “I AM” was,  who “I AM” is. I AM is me. I AM is you. I AM is my higher self. I AM is your higher self. Our higher self, I AM, is the the divine being, the spark, the light, that exists within us. Once we can grasp that concept we can release the limitations we have set for ourselves because our higher self is not something we become. It is something we are. It’s something we have always been and will always be.

I AM THAT I AM.

If the knowledge of your higher self is a new concept to you. Think of it as this:

Your higher self is the perfection of who you are. The all knowing. The all powerful. The unlimited. The essense of this perfect self living here on Earth and you act in accordance with how your perfect self lives on Earth. You are perfect. That is which you are. Absorb the thought and allow it to resonate within you. See what transpires from that. I AM LOVE. I AM MY HIGHER SELF. MY HIGHER SELF IS LOVE. YOU ARE LOVE.

A Love Story

Affirmation: I AM Love.

I’ve been doing a lot of traveling around Southern California with my mom the past couple weeks. We’ve been in Palm Springs, San Diego, Huntington Beach, Anaheim and now Redondo Beach. Along my journey I learned about Anita Moorjani. It’s her story that inspired this affirmation.

While I was in San Diego I read an article where Wayne Dyer interviews Anita. The article peaked my interest because I had watched a Wayne Dyer PBS special, not too long before, where he brings Anita up on stage. Who is Anita Moorjani? She’s the author of Dying to Be Me, a true life story about Anita’s journey with Cancer to miraculous healing through a near death experience. Anita had lymphoma which had spread from the base of her skull down to her abdomen. She had tumors the size of lemons all through her body. The story goes that she was brought into the hospital in a coma and her family was told she would be dead by the morning. While this was all happening, Anita was going through what she refers to as a very conscious experience where she was seeing and hearing everything that was happening in the hospital and at the same time was learning about the power of divine unconditional love. Anita says it was her own personal fears that had caused much of her disease and pain. Through her new understanding of the power of unconditional love that comes from Source she was able to heal herself. When Anita came out of her coma the next day, to the surprise of all her doctors, she came out cancer free. Her message to us, “I AM LOVE.” Love heals. You are love. I am love. We are all LOVE. Let love heal you.

I encourage you to think about this affirmation and what it means. I also encourage you to say it as often as you can, especially when you are looking in the mirror, and then I encourage you to see how your life transforms as you continue to use this affirmation.

The Vortex

Bell Rock ~ Sedona, AZ

Affirmation: I am aligned, in harmony and whole. I am in the vortex. The vortex and I are one.

Sedona, Arizona, is a mecca of vortexes, and it’s the next place our journey led us. What a beautiful, breathtaking and magical place. I’m so happy I’ve been able to experience it.

We drove in through Flagstaff, AZ. Having never been to Arizona before, I didn’t realize that we would drive through a huge forest to get here. I guess I had it in my head that Arizona was just desert. At Flagstaff you are at 7000 ft and then you drive down a windy two lane highway about 28 miles to Sedona. At first it seemed like the forest went on forever, so I couldn’t figure out when the giant red rocks Sedona is know for would appear. When they did, it was so breathtaking my eyes welled up with tears. I was overcome with its beauty and I could feel the energy and love Mother Earth has.

Since we’ve been here I’ve made a point to hike to each of the vortexes and do a meditation to engage myself further with the energy here. It’s been magical. I could actually feel the energy. To me it feels like flowing waves and I feel lighter, like I’m floating. Everyone experiences it differently though.

What is a Sedona vortex? The vortexes are sites where there is a spiral flow of spiritual energy existing on multiple dimensions. It is believed that you can tap deeper into your inner self through prayer and meditation when you access the vortex energy.

Even if you come here and don’t have the heightened sensitivity to actually feel the energy, you can’t help but notice it in the people, the environment and just the general sense of peace that comes over you from being here.

Abraham Hicks speaks of the vortex. Abraham tells us that the vortex is, “where the Law of Attraction assembles all cooperative relationships.” To hear more about what Abraham has to say about the vortex check out this video on You Tube.

Experiencing the energy of the vortex here has definitely had a powerful effect on me. I do believe, however, that we all have the capability to tap into the energy of the vortex no matter where we are as long as we know we are one with the energy of the vortex.

Here’s a simple meditation you can do to unite with its energy. If you can do this outside in nature, I highly recommend it.

Sit quietly with your eyes closed. Take three deep breaths and allow your body to relax. Feel the energy of whatever you are sitting on beneath you. Begin to see it as energy rather than the physical object it once was. Now begin to see yourself, your body, as a form of energy. Feel how you become one with the energy of the ground beneath you. In front of you see a mass of spiraling energy. Call that energy towards you and feel yourself enter the center. See your energy uniting with the spiraling energy. You are now the energy of the vortex. Feel the love that energy has for itself and for you. It’s powerful, it’s unconditional. Express your gratitude to the energy for all that it is, all that you are. If you’d like say a prayer, mantra, affirmation or ask it for something you’d like to bring in or dissolve from your life. Now sit with the energy so you can share yourself with it, like you would if you were spending time with a loved one. Begin to bring yourself back. Feel the ground beneath you. Feel the physical manifestation that is you. When you are ready open your eyes.
