Hi Sara, I really appreciate your posts and read each and every one! I love the analogy of the river and letting go. It reminds me of the native american Hopi wisdom that I read once:
"There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly.
"Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, Least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt."
Thank you for sharing, for fighting the good fight, and for your wisdom!
Thank you, Jackie, for this beautiful quote from Hopi wisdom. We have common understandings across all cultures and times.
Your meditation travels are very validating to me because I travel too sometimes. I am also traveling on a river, but I am in the woods. I see the pebbled shore with the water lapping over the stones with the forest not to far off. It is the forest that calls me. I have no idea what this means, but nature calls me all the time. I look at pictures of forest paths and I want to be there so badly. I imagine myself walking down the path, smelling the sweet scent of wood and pine and listening to the birds sing....Glad to know that I am not the only one who sometimes travels during meditation. Thanks for sharing.....
Thank you Kim. In meditation, it's good to just go where you are lead... there is usually more to see and understand there. So, if you see the forest, go into the forest... or wherever you are called to go in your journey. At least that is what I have found most useful.
Thank You Sara!! This resonates with me so much!!! Thank you for always being so right on!!!
Thanks for reading!
Thank you Sara at this time of year it seems very appropriate to let go lest we be drowned by the mistakes of our past or worse forced to repeat it . The Universe is telling us all to move forward I hope we all do ., into the glorious future that awaits us
Thank you Teri - you're right "or worse forced to repeat it". Best to let go, and live in Flow and let the Universe guide us fully.
I look forward to your Daily Divine email everyday!! It gives me such a guidance that I need in my life. I will soon find that balance....
The more you focus on this work, Stephanie, the more your life changes. The further you go, the easier things get. Light brings more Light!
Thank you again, as a Tai Chi practitioner I know this all to well and yet, reminders are always needed, Spirit guides are steering me in the most amazing directions these days, I love the support group that collects here , I enjoy all the other post that the others share, , Catch you on the pod cast,
Ah... Tai Chi is a way of experiencing Flow in the body. Wonderful practice! So you bring your body practice into your life practice into your spiritual practice, and vice versus.
This is so beautiful, thank you! I instinctively thought... go with the flow. Even though I have no idea how to do that! Anyway long story short I saw you have a course on clearing past family energies. I love that it's so affordable, and hard work is no stranger to me. Spiritual work maybe. But, in the 7 shadows. ..my family has every one. That's just going back to my grandmamas and papas! Is this even possible and if so where do I start? Thank you for any guidance you have to offer. I'm so glad to meet someone who is familiar with this type of work. Nameste
It's actually common, Aspasisa, for families to have all the Seven Shadows. So... just gently, easily, with compassion for yourself and others, begin to do the work of detangling all that past. It may not clear the first time you do the course (Release Yourself from Family Karma from DailyOM and as ebook or mp3s on my site), but as you attend to it over time, change happens.
