The Ebb and Flow of Life

This bit was sent to me by a woman by the name of Jennifer McLean. She has a program call Healing with the Master. It’s a free thing where she offers one hour discussions with spiritual/transcendent/enlightened folks of our time. Sometimes the offerings are…well lets just be polite and say…Different! Sometimes these folks can offer some wonderful insights. This note from Jennifer is one of those times.

I thought I’d send this little note and process to you today to remind you that we all share this juicy adventure of life and its peaks and valleys…
When we are feeling “low,” we often perceive that we are in a “low” place. But, by remembering that we are just in a different place of vibrational energy, we can love ourselves and accept where we are, knowing that this space of compression is preparing us for our next point of expansion.
Think of how a beautiful ocean wave rolls in and splashes us then recedes as we adjust. The space between waves is our time to adjust for the next and the next and the next, and each differs in pace, strength, and frequency.
If/when you are feeling low, use this following process to raise your vibration and accept the place in which you are:
Open your arms and stretch them apart, above your head, towards the sky as if you’re embracing and saluting the sun. Notice how your chest widens and feel that stretch in your back as your shoulder blades roll down and your chest opens up.  
Breathe in this place of expansion. Can you feel it?  Feel this expansion. 
Imagine holding that for 12 straight hours. It would hurt… because we are not meant to hold expansion forever.
Now slowly bring it all the way in and then move into a kind of fetal position where your head is tucked under, your palms are hugging you, your arms are hugging you. Doesn’t it feel safe in this fetal position?
Breathe in this place of compression. Can you feel it? Feel this place of compression.
Compression is a sign for a child to be born. Compression is winter.  None of it is bad or wrong…  It’s just compression.
Expansion and compression are the dance of life… Take it to its fullest point and then bring it in to that point of compression. And then expand as if your wings are expanding.
When a bird isn’t flying, it’s wings are not spread. It would hurt.  When you’re flying, your wings are spread.  When you’re not, you’re resting.  Resting.
So you get to choose if that point of rest is bad. Maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s just a point of inertia. Maybe you’re just supposed to rest. Maybe you’re supposed to be in the void. Maybe you’re not depressed. Maybe you’re just in a place of inertia.
Remember that the frequency and pace of things coming at us is all perfect because we are ready for it and can handle it.
It may be different than before, but we are in a place of energetic vibration that is completely enabling us to not only handle and manage it, but ride on it. And I know this is true because none of it would be here if we weren’t ready.
So, will you ride the wave of life and expand your evolutionary track?
In love, light and laughter,

An Easter Prayer

When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his/her glorious, unlimited resources he/her will empower you with inner strength through his/her Spirit. Then Christ will make his/her home in your hearts as you trust in him/her. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.  And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his/her love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his/her mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.  Glory to him/her in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

Ephesians 3: 14-21

Earth Day Prayer by Noel Knockwood

The Sacred Seven Prayers O Great Spirit, who art before all else and who dwells in every object, in every person and in every place, we cry unto Thee. We summon Thee from the far places into our present awareness.

O Great Spirit of the North, who gives wings to the waters of the air and rolls the thick snowstorm before Thee, Who covers the Earth with a sparkling crystal carpet above whose deep tranquillity every sound is beautiful. Temper us with strength to withstand the biting blizzards, yet make us thankful for the beauty which follows and lies deep over the warm Earth in its wake.

 O Great Spirit of the East, the land of the rising Sun, Who holds in Your right hand the years of our lives and in Your left the opportunities of each day. Brace us that we may not neglect our gifts nor lose in laziness the hopes of each day and the hopes of each year.

O Great Spirit of the South, whose warm breath of compassion melts the ice that gathers round our hearts, whose fragrance speaks of distant springs and summer days, dissolve our fears, melt our hatreds, kindle our love into flames of true and living realities. Teach us that he who is truly strong is also kind, he who is wise tempers justice with mercy, he who is truly brave matches courage with compassion.

 O Great Spirit of the West, the land of the setting Sun, with Your soaring mountains and free, wide rolling prairies, bless us with knowledge of the peace which follows purity of striving and the freedom which follows like a flowing robe in the winds of a well-disciplined life. Teach us that the end is better than the beginning and that the setting sun glorifies not in vain.

 O Great Spirit of the heavens, in the day’s infinite blue and amid the countless stars of the night season, remind us that you are vast, that you are beautiful and majestic beyond all of our knowing or telling, but also that you are no further from us than the tilting upwards of our heads and the raising of our eyes.

O Great Spirit of Mother Earth beneath our feet, Master of metals, Germinator of seeds and the Storer of the Earth’s unreckoned resources, help us to give thanks unceasingly for Your present bounty.

O Great Spirit of our souls, burning in our heart’s yearning and in our innermost aspirations, speak to us now and always so that we may be aware of the greatness and goodness of Your gift of life and be worthy of this priceless privilege of living.

Thanks Joleen Sheldon for sharing. That is a nice way to commemorate Earth Day!
