365 Invocations to Create an Extraordinary Life, Week 7

Posted: Updated:

Aloha, again! How is your journey progressing toward aligning your spirit with the healing energy of the Universe, your co-creator?

I am delighted that I have begun to receive your comments. This is important because hearing from you about where you feel "stuck," "skeptical" or "thrilled" about feeling a connection helps me understand where I need to go to give you more tools to work with on your path to Oneness and invoking an extraordinary life.

Some of the comments I have received express confusion about visualizing the Universe. There seems to be a general nervousness about how it looks, how it feels, where it exists, how it exists, if it exists -- almost like it is presumptuous to know. There's some doubt that an energy so soft, so loving, so powerful really lives. And if it does, why would so many suffer and why is there so much fear and violence in our world? The short answer to the last question is, it is not the Creator who brings fear and violence into the world. It is our fearful thoughts and actions that manifest emotional and physical pain and suffering.

Getting back to the visualization process: Let's start by doing a little soul work. Let's begin by remembering there is the story of You ruled by your ego's desires, and there is the everlasting You who has no story, is a part of everything, and is totally free and in a relaxed loving state 24/7. From this point on I am going to be talking to your everlasting part, your soul.

Close your eyes and take several deep breaths. As you breathe into your body, notice there is the You who is breathing and also there is someone else quietly noticing you breathing. This part of you is watching over you, always has been and always will. It will never judge you, abandon you, or die. Simply stated, it loves you no matter what and it knows it is connected to the source of love and relies on that connection. It is here to lead you to your source so that you can relax, trust, feel empowered and feel true bliss.

So as you breathe, notice the eternal part of you and keep relaxing and breathing deeply. Feel yourself becoming one. When your mind is quiet, ask that the Universe reveal itself energetically in front of you. It may appear as a color, a sound, formless or a specific shape. Don't try to make it happen or figure it out. Just keep relaxing and asking that which created you -- and continues to co-create your reality from your thoughts -- appear in a clear visualization. Rest assured, the Universe is generous, non-judgmental, and wants to reveal itself to you at any moment.

This is your homework until next week. Remember, the more you relax and drop all judgment of what you should see and feel, the deeper your experiences will be. Take your time, be patient, and let the Universe reveal itself in whatever way you need to find it. It could be in the eyes of a child, in the flowers you arrange, in a stranger's smile on the street. The loving energy of the Universe will appear as soon as you are ready to sense it and feel it.

Here are your invocations for the week.

1. The Universe and I are one.
2. The Universe protects me and loves me.
3. Breathing in I let go of all judgment, breathing out I relax.
4. The Eternal part of me is peaceful and still.
5. I trust my connection to the Universe that creates everything.
6. I deserve to be connected to the source of love and peace.
7. I am an expression of loving kindness and inner peace as seen through the Light that surrounds me everywhere I go

Please feel free to send me your comments so I can continue to create invocations that help in your expansion. I will be on vacation so see you again in two weeks. Be well and be free!
