Baths of Light, Circles, Meditations, Thoughts, and Prayers
Following this evening’s group meditation, I administered a throat blessing for @jeanne-mayell ’s continued healing from her surgery, and for the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing of everyone in our community, and beyond. I also prayed that we use the power of our voices to speak the truth with courage, kindness, and love.
this^! Thank you Deetoo, and everyone- a beautiful night!
Absolutely beautiful and so perfect it fills me up.
I held Jeanne in my thoughts, said a prayer of love and healing for past pains and traumas to break open the crystalline balls of impediments for her but most of my meditation was channelled towards healing all who suffer in all ways and then my own intention personal family prayers.
Then of course my bizarre E.T. channeling of little unexpected beings watching over our planet came in that I shared on the Trump thread after Lawrence's comment about tonight.
All in all a very intense and powerful meditation very heart expanding. Loved the group energy.
Yes... a very powerful and Healing Energy .........blessings for Jeanne and held her in the white light swirled through with the green and pink ribbons of Light of Healing and Love - then on to all of the Earth and the people...held China and all of the other locations where the people are fighting Coronavirus and I can't remember it now... but a crazy little song refrain /mantra began to play in my head and I sang along with it while visualizing all of us holding hands and giving Reiki Healing Energy to all in need of healing and watching White Light flowing up and out in geysers to completely surround the Earth. I basically was totally relaxed after the group meditation and then drifted off from my dorsal recumbency state of being in my recliner to have some Peaceful dreams and woke up just a few minutes ago to toddle on off to bed...only to get a note an acquaintance, friend to many, crossed over unexpectedly tonight. Unexpected to us..the community who loved him..perfect timing for him as we know...for we go Home when we are ready to exit this realm. Hugs and many thanks Jimmy. You are missed. ❤️
I started 2-3 minutes early with my meditation, thinking about Jeanne, everyone here in the forum, everyone I know, all beings, and earth. I then went about my day.
Later in the afternoon I was standing at my kitchen window when two wild doves perched on the fence in my tiny back yard. They emanated such peace and warmth as they bathed contentedly in the sun’s golden light. I couldn’t help but link them to our meditation, they were quite magical.
Thank you to everyone here! Love to you all.
I have to tell you what happened to me last night when you were meditating. I had thought that the meditation was only for the world, that its purpose had changed to just sending healing to the world. I also felt really tired all day yesterday and wondered if I'd overestimated how quickly I was going to recover. I debated about whether I should postpone the class tonight and even started sending out an email to people some time between 8 and 9 pm, when I suddenly got such energy! I got up and told my husband that I'd turned the corner. I had forgotten about the meditation and thought that I had just healed myself! But it was you, you you with your love and kindness. Thank you all. What a community.
I need some help understanding some of what I experienced during last night’s loving-kindness meditation. Because the light energy was so powerful – stronger than anything I’ve experienced with a group – I had some physical reactions that were very uncomfortable. It didn’t feel dark or anything like that, but there was a period where I actually thought I would be sick. It almost felt like a detox reaction – nauseous, on the verge of a migraine, and lightheaded to the point where I thought I might pass out.
The only comparison I can draw on is an experience I had years ago with a trusted medical Qigong practitioner. I could feel him working on particular organs of my body, stirring stuff up and out. At one point it became intense, similar to what I’ve described above. I shared that with him, so he said, “I think that’s enough for today,” cleared out some things and ended our session. I remember leaving his office, exhausted and wobbly, not sure whether I could make it to my car.
I should add that I didn’t feel ungrounded during last night’s meditation, but I did feel in a somewhat physically weakened state. (I’ve been fighting some sort of bug.) To address my discomfort, I tried to channel the energy down my legs, through my feet and into the earth. I must have been somewhat successful, because the uncomfortable feelings eventually lessened and things seemed to level out. Afterwards I was able to do the throat-blessing ritual I described in my earlier post, without any discomfort. Later that night I was really revved up and had difficulty sleeping.
I am a real conduit to energy (sending/receiving), as I know most of you here are too. I can also be a sponge to my environment, which I also know many of you deal with.
I would welcome any feedback you could offer. Thanks.
Sounds like you empathically felt what I was going through. The prior two nights I have been revved up much of the night and couldn't sleep much. It wasn't a bad feeling. I took it as a sign of new healing strength that is my future. Still I need to rest and last night I slept like a baby! I think you might have done a Tonglen (Buddhist healing practice) on me where you draw in the energy that needs healing and send out a healing breath. Only you might have to work on being sure to clear whatever energy you drew in. Also it is not advised to do healing on others when you yourself are battling some illness. I thank you for doing it, Deetoo. I got a powerful boost last night which reassured me that I will make a full recovery. You will be fine unless that thing you were battling earlier is still around and your body needed its own healing cleanse. These are pivotal times and many are going through healing cleansing right now.
I am new to meditation so I think mine turned into more of a prayer session. I lit a white sage candle, and asked for healing for Jeanne, and health and strength for everyone here, and help to defeat the darkness of this administration, in accordance with His will. It was peaceful.
I'm still a little fuzzy about how much you should ask for things during meditation, and how much you should let things come to you. It's really hard for me to ever clear my mind.
I also just got a hit about your awakeness following your healing meditation. Spirit guides are abundant right now. You likely tapped into a pure flow of healing energy. I know I've been feeling it in bursts like bright lights are on.
Sharon Saltzberg a well known meditation teacher is doing a one month of meditation on line right now. Today is day three. Go to her website and sign on and catch up. The first week is all on "Concentration" which is what you are saying you are lacking.
I'll check it out. Thanks.
I am new to this as well and was trying to slip off to do this quickly before I had to wrangle kids to bed. I have done enough meditation/mindfulness off and on to have learned that I set my intention (in this case, follow the instructions by Jeanne in the Loving Kindness meditation) and just trust that it is carrying out as it should, whether I feel much going on or not. Basically, don't try too hard - once you put it out there, it is happening. No idea if that is correct! 🙂
I am encouraged that the group is setting up regular meditations this month, so I am hoping to join in more regularly to hone that "meditation muscle." I took Qi Gong years ago and remember when I was practicing regularly, I had all sorts of interesting sensations and feelings so I think this is like that -- practicing regularly will help.
I think I was rushed last night too. I had to frost cupcakes I had promised some football-watching non-meditators. lol I also have a condition that makes it very difficult to calm and clear my mind-ever-so that is a huge hurdle I have to overcome.
Here's a meditation instruction in verse attributed to St. Teresa of Avila. It may help you meditate:
This magnificent refuge is inside you.
Enter. Shatter the darkness that shrouds the doorway.
Be bold. Be humble.
Put away the incense and forget
the incantations they taught you.
Ask no permission from the authorities.
Close your eyes and follow your breath
to the still place that leads to the
invisible path that leads you home.
-St. Teresa of Avila (b. 1515)
@jeanne-mayell, it sounds like you have turned a corner with your healing. Yay!! I am happy to hear that and sense you will become stronger every day. Although you are feeling better, I encourage you to focus first on self-nurturance and receiving whatever healing gifts come your way. Nurturing yourself is also a way of giving back to others, since we're all connected.
These are pivotal times and many are going through healing cleansing right now.
Spirit guides are abundant right now. You likely tapped into a pure flow of healing energy.
Yes! That's what it felt like, Jeanne -- a pure flow of healing energy. It also felt like too much for me to handle, at least at that time. Like pure electricity. I've generally felt shades of that, either meditating in a group or sometimes by myself, but nothing like what I experienced yesterday.
So I sense it was a combination of self-healing, as well as what you described, Tonglen. Kind of an energetic stew, and my body just couldn't keep up. I know you're right about not doing healing on others when you yourself are battling some illness. If it had been three days ago, when I was feeling pretty bad, I wouldn't have engaged in the meditation. But I was feeling better, although not totally there physically. I believed that I would be receiving as much as I would be sending. I believe I did receive much healing, just not it the way I expected!
Thank you for your kind feedback, Jeanne. I will pray for your continued healing and renewal.
Please join us in a Special Meditation for all of the children everywhere affected by our (or other countries) immigration policies.
As suggested by our wonderful Lynn here in our group who has been working so hard for the families at the US/Mexican border using her gifts as a lawyer/advocate/counselor and woman warrior.
Maybe we could all plan a few moments of silent prayer/meditation/healing energy for the children? Sometime next week, after Valentine's Day and the long weekend. Maybe Wednesday night. Let me know if folks would like to join in.
I asked my departed mother for comforting words this morning. I heard, "Be brave."
As I and others such as @deetoo are replying to @lynnvenura
I would be honored to mediate with her next Wednesday to share our love, light, hope and prayers for all of the children.
Her work and those of so many others helping these lost but not forgotten refugees means so much to all of us here.
I am reposting it here on one of our meditation threads so it might reach more readers both registered here or just reading. I will also post it on my facebook page and urge others to do so as well.
Hold a vision of all of us all around the world circling the globe as we envision our world and all of us holding hands with unity of hearts, minds, and spirits with intention and manifestation of energies for the good of all.
Our hearts may hurt so for all of the hurting, lost, imprisoned or even enslaved children but this is something we all can do as a community.
Join us next Wednesday after today's Valentines (send them all love today, as well) and the long weekend.
Holding Hands for Humanity's Hurting Children
Wednesday, February 19, 2020.
Standard group full moon meditation times can apply or simply meditate whenever you can.
@michele-b Thank you for posting and coordinating! I think we can have an impact by sending our energy and love to the children (and their moms too). I hope they will feel our love and know they're in our hearts and not forgotten.
You are our muse and catalyst on this one dear Lynn.
May our heart, light, compassion and gifts of energetic transmission and manifestation indeed be felt by hurting hearts and empty arms everywhere -across all borders and through all gates and walls and wires cages may love and light and mercy prevail 💔💝💖
Just wanted to post a reminder about tomorrow's meditation, 9 pm EST!
