The sun woke me up this morning. The bedroom blinds were ajar and birdsong floated in through the opening in the window pane. It's Easter morning and I want to be more optimistic and hopeful this morning. Not... as in.. more hopeful than unusual... not as in.. super high vibes versus high. This is the kind of morning, I'd usually wake up eager to face the day- but the truth is- there have been challenges lately.
The challenges have been so great that I don't feel ready to share them. In large part, because they aren't just my story, but the story of others I love, too. This morning, while the birdsong played, my first thought was- I don't want to get up. I don't want to face this day. I don't know how to face any of the days.
It's a sharp contrast to the life I try to live. They say that once you've learned to live in high vibes, a slight dip in them can feel unbearable. I believe this is true.
Now, Easter grass is strewn on the floor and I need to reach for something to restore my alignment. The past week, I've been so stretched thin, the anger, the frustration, the judgment... it's all rushed back and I've felt everything dark I don't want to- most dark- the fear.
So, May Cause Miracles, is a short meditative practice to support a heart that needs to realign. I need to shed the negative... breathe in love again. Today, I release my unkind thoughts and feelings to return to the truth- that love is stronger than fear.
Gabby suggests making a list of kind things we've done for others and forgiving ourselves for the negative. As we soften our judgement toward ourselves, we begin to dissolve our judgement of others. An inner awareness and opening is key.
So, if you wish you'd bounded out of bed to welcome the springtime, the Easter bunny, the sunrise- but instead, you felt sad, alone or angry...take a moment to look yourself in the eyes (in the mirror) and remember that we were born from kindness and we are kind beings. The shift in remembering our kindness through the grace we give ourselves and offer the world might set the stage for a fresh new wave of gratitude, and lead us to a more inspired morning tomorrow. I listened, I reflected and my spirit feels a bit lighter.
Today is a fresh day to come back home to a happier heart.
As Trevor Hall, one of my favorite spiritual artists sings, "Don't you carry stones in your bowl of light."
Today, I release some of those stones to lighten my load and shine a little bit again.
