Experience Unconditional Love to handle maximum change

There is a lot of light coming in, stimulating old karma, positive and negative, and old pools of energy. It is all been brought to the surface and speeded up. Not so much that humanity and the world “blow up”, but enough so that changes occur in humanity and the world at top speed.

People don’t like change (usually), they like familiarity, constancy, safety, and wealth. They like things to stay the same. Young people, in their teens and twenties, for the most part are okay with change. People who are desperate will go for change in order to simply survive, or help their children survive.

People like constancy because they like to hold on to a way of life they like. They like to hold on to society the way it is, and maintain their role and status within it, particularly if they consider themselves to have influence, wealth, prestige, power and status. They like their community to be more or less the same. They like to maintain beliefs, thoughts and attitudes in society in their social strata, their families, and in themselves. Change knocks against their very identity.

They have psychologically placed themselves at the centre of the little picture of their own world, and they will try to maintain their world. It has provided for them in the past, and they put their trust in it. They absolutely don’t want change. They don’t have a picture or a vision to follow into a new future, and they don’t know how to trust.

I’ve said young people and desperate people will embrace change. People who have a spirituality and have God or the Divine in their picture or vision of the world have a different psychology. They place God at the centre of their world rather than themselves. They have a bigger picture. This makes them more open to change, and they are more willing to trust without seeing obvious or safe steps.

Being desperate is a scary place, and a person like this has nothing to lose and everything to gain by change.

Trying to hang on to a comfortable, familiar life while being faced with an unfamiliar changing world can be uncomfortable, and for some it can be scary. People who have been following a spiritual path, and have a sense of the Divine can sometimes dive down the planes to experience zeroth and first plane thoughts of fear and worry when faced with a crisis or difficulty.

In times like that it’s important to remember God; to remember the Divine. It’s important to remember that God is inside us. Fast paced change is going to keep on going in the world for some time, so being able to access the Divine within us, is a very good thing.

Having a sense of the Divine inside means that when life gets tough or something happens, we can touch a feeling of calm and certainty. We can get some guidance. We can open up to support, and we can experience some healing.

Then also, if we have made one or more decisions that take us off our best timeline, we can find a route to get back on it.

How to connect with and experience the Divine?

It’s surprisingly easy. God is Love. When we experience unconditional love (rather than mushy,  sentimental or “with strings” love), we get to experience God. There are other ways, other qualities that can describe God, but Love is a quality that we can easily access. It is a first port of call.

The following meditation incorporates some grounding and bringing in light to heal, which is great to use every day, and is also like first aid in a time of difficulty or crisis.

Get as comfortable as you can. Close your eyes. Take several deep and gentle breaths. Become aware of your chest and aware of your breathing.

Focus on your feet, and imagine roots of whatever colour feels right, growing down into the ground, into the earth. These are to ground you, anchor you in and give you some stability. Let the earth’s energy flow up your roots and into your body. The earth’s energy will soothe, calm and nourish.

Let go of any negativity, and let it go down to your feet, and then down through your roots, into the earth. The earth can neutralize this energy.

White light then pours down from on high, and in through the top of your head. The white light flows down through your head, into your neck and throat. The white light then flows throughout the rest of your body. This white light flows to the tips of your fingers and toes. It fills your body.

The place to find unconditional love is the upper part of the centre of your chest. This love is a quality of God. With your imagination, look at the upper part of the centre of your chest, and notice a glow. That glow is unconditional love.

Simply focus on that part of your chest,  focus on the glow, look into it. Give that glow of unconditional love your attention. Feel what it feels like, how does unconditional love feel?

Notice the effect of unconditional love on your head and on your mind for a moment.

Focus on the upper part of your chest again, and on the glow of unconditional love. Imagine it growing and glowing brighter and larger, filled with more light and unconditional love. This love makes no demands; it just gives. It makes no judgments, it simplify gives.

Allow the light of this unconditional love to expand and fill more and more of your chest. You might feel a joy within it. You might feel an expansive silence in the unconditional love. You might feel an infinite stillness. Let yourself feel the love glowing from inside you.

Whips of this love gently flow into other parts of your body. The energy of unconditional love flows to your head and wraps around it. The unconditional love envelopes your mind, and permeates your mind.

Surrender to the unconditional love, let go and open up to it. Offer up anything in your life that you feel you need help with. Let go of outcomes. Just let go. Mentally say, “May the Father’s Will be done”.

Unconditional love doesn’t work by trying to force things. Unconditional love works by feeling the unconditional love, letting go, and surrendering everything. If you want to know the best outcome for a situation, ask to be shown it, and then open up to be shown at this time or a later time the best possible outcome. This outcome will suit your best timeline. When you are experiencing unconditional love, you can get a sense of your best timeline.

If there is something to do, a step to make, then again mentally ask to be shown it at this time or a later time. This step will be the best one for your best timeline.

Now focus again on the top part of your chest. Feel the unconditional love flowing to other parts of your body.

You can imagine it gently flowing to other people, freely giving them the love.

You can imagine it gently flowing to situations, freely offering love.

Bring your focus back to your upper chest, and rest it there in the glow for a moment.

Now become aware of your body, and your feet and your roots.

Take some breaths, gentle and deep. Open your eyes.

When you experience unconditional love your consciousness goes up and it is easier to make the best decisions. It is easier to get onto, and stay on your best timeline. Also, the unconditional love you feel has a knock-on effect on other people around you.

How to know if it is a good idea to get into a relationship

Some years ago, I was having a telephone conversation with a friend. She told me that her teenage daughter was in turmoil about a possible relationship with a boy who had asked her out. She really didn’t know what to do, and her feelings were mixed.

I said I would try to help. So my friend put her daughter on the phone. She reiterated that she didn’t know what to do. Relationships are a lot to do with the karma of those involved, and one partner can give the other partner the experiences they need to balance their karma, and to learn whatever it is they need to learn. Also there is often a recognition at a deep level, as the people involved would have had one or more previous lifetimes where they were in a relationship.

When people form a relationship, cordings develop between their chakras or centres. These cordings look weak or strong depending on the strength of the relationship. The cordings look beautiful, or healthy, or unpleasant, depending on the type and quality of the relationship.  The aura of one person responds when they think about their partner, or potential partner. The aura can become more beautiful, brighter and lighter. Or there is very little change if there is little meaning in the relationship. If there is something unhealthy, or unhappy or downright wrong in the relationship, that too can show up in the aura, as it reflects a truth, even if on the personality level, the person is oblivious to this.

I asked my friend’s daughter to think about this other person, close her eyes, and imagine the potential boyfriend in front of her at a comfortable distance. I suggested that she look at his heart centre, to see if it was large or small, light or dark, and how bright or how dark. Just for the record, his heart centre wasn’t dark, but it was a bit dull, and on the small side, which indicated not much love, but no malice.

I said for her to look at his solar plexus; was it light or dark, and were there any strands or cordings looking like little snakes. It was a bit grey, with what looked like small snakes, she said. This indicated a level of manipulation, rather than a desire to free-up and empower. Not evil or malicious, more like very annoying. It was like a learned habit rather than deliberately controlling.

Next I said she should look at the sexual centre. That was a bit dark. As well as sex, the sexual centre is about ownership, but the dark energy was what she wouldn’t need, as through sex energy is transferred between lovers, so at some point, if they had sex, she would end up with dark energy in her system which would not be that amazing for her. I didn’t talk about sex to her, but just got her to check the energy of his sexual centre, and she got the point anyway.

Just for good measure, I asked her to imagine bringing him a little bit closer until cordings formed between their centres. She said these were dull and saggy. They wouldn’t make for an inspiring relationship. At least they weren’t black, possessive, evil, violent and controlling. Nor were they bright, beautiful, energized and strong, with positive and loving energy flowing back and forth.

She decided not to follow up the young man’s invitation.

I think that just being able to talk with someone about what was happening helping to calm her enough to focus and review the situation. My friend’s daughter was great at using her imagination, which anyone can use as a tool to work with the world of energy, the third eye and the other centres and the aura.

In a relationship, a good heart is an essential, so it needs to be large enough and bright enough. The other centres need to be clean, and being bright helps. Cordings need to be bright, vibrant and loving. These are the ingredients of a good start at least, and the karma will show up in the path, in the timeline from then on. (What’s that about a Golden Pathway timeline that’s mentioned elsewhere in the blog?)

This way of looking at relationships and people not only works with romantic relationships, but also friendships, working relationships, and any other kind of relationship.

Meditation to love and accept your body

We have a mental body, an astral body, an etheric body and a physical body. We might have some higher bodies than the mental. The body that bothers us the most (usually), is the physical body.

When I was younger I liked my body as I swam a lot. Except the legs. The legs were too short. Now being older, my waist is larger and I can’t get into some clothes I really liked. My muscle tone looks like it isn’t that Adonis look I prided myself on. The physical body always changes as time goes on, and pride in looks that are going to change now seems foolish. I find I’m critical about parts of my body though, not massively, it’s just irksome.

I’ve never been the kind of person to give someone’s opinion on an advertisement the time of day, and what other people might think about my body has to me just been their business. I’m aware though, that my negative thoughts about my body aren’t going to help in any way. Even if I want to change something about my body for health reasons.

I do know that the body is sensitive to thoughts. The body has an intelligence. The bodymind can be found in the solar plexus area. What you think and feel about your body with your intellectual type mind has an effect on your body, and on its health, and how it functions. Grudgingly, I would say that the thoughts of others have an effect as well. A friend, who was an expert in kinesiology and worked in a school, once told me of an experiment he did in a school assembly. He showed the students about how muscle testing works, and how muscles could be made weak or strong. He then had a student volunteer go out of the hall. He got all the other students to think negative thoughts about the student who was outside the hall. The student came back in, and was muscle tested. His muscles were weak. The teacher cleared his energy and the student went back out of the hall. The students thought positive thoughts about the student outside. In they came and this time when they were muscle tested, their muscles were strong.

Quite a few years ago I learned how positive and negative thoughts generally affect the body and its health. Thoughts affect even the body chemistry and the functioning of the body. Being happy or depressed has a different effect on the body.

To be in the public eye physically, or have an online presence and receive the thoughts of others and remain unaffected by them must require a robust aura, with a thick skin. (Astrally, cyberspace is real and contains people’s feelings and thoughts which can be projected into other people’s auras, and so no wonder it can hurt. This is why doing protective meditations can be so important. It’s also important to close doorways on phones, tablets and computers.)

Our thoughts and also our feelings about everything, including our bodies, are important. Spiritually, being loving, forgiving and having goodness in our thoughts about our bodies, people, the things in our lives, and just about everything else, is helpful, and helps change. Being loving towards your body, thinking positive thoughts about it, and feeling good about your body can have a great impact on it. From a spiritual point of view, it’s great to keep the vehicle for your spirit and soul in top condition.

This meditation focuses on the body, your body, my body, while the general idea applies to everything.

In a quiet place, sit comfortably and close your eyes.

Take several gentle and deep breaths.

Focus your attention on the middle of your chest, where your heart centre is. Notice a glow of light in the very middle of your heart centre. The upper part of your heart centre is the home to unconditional love. The light in your heart centre is unconditional love.

Allow this light, this unconditional love to grow. From high, up above you, brilliant white light falls down gently like snow. This white light flows down into your heart centre, and into the light of your unconditional love, nourishing it, and helping it to grow. Your unconditional love expands and fills your heart centre, and shines out rays of unconditional love.

Allow this unconditional love to flow to your chest, and fill your chest with its light and its love. Allow the unconditional love to cover your skin. The unconditional love and the light cover and fill your pectoral and breast area. Feel the unconditional love soaking into and saturating this part of your body, and notice how it responds.

You can just notice the effect of the unconditional love, or you can also tell this part of your body, “I love and appreciate you”. You can say it mentally, or out loud. If you want you can be specific and say something like, “breast, I love and appreciate you”, a few times.

Choose parts of your chest to allow unconditional love to flow into. Feel the response to the love, and say if you want to, “I love and appreciate you…”, naming that part of your body.

Place your awareness on your heart centre again, and feel the unconditional love once again. Let the light of the unconditional love flow to your stomach area. Let it fill, and cover it. Feel your stomach area respond to the love. If you want to, say, “stomach, I love you”. If you want to, say, “skin, I love and appreciate you”.

Again, bring your awareness back to the light of the unconditional love in your heart, and watch it glow and shine.

Now put your awareness on your lower abdomen and your waist. Let the unconditional love from your heart centre fill and cover this area. See it like the light of unconditional love filling your lower abdomen and waist. Notice how this feels.

If you want to, say, “waist, I love and appreciate you”. Tell your skin you love it, tell your lower abdomen, or belly as you might call it, that you love it and appreciate it.

Again, bring your attention to your heart centre, and feel the unconditional love there. Let yourself bask in the feel of the unconditional love for a while.

Now place your awareness on your groin area. Let unconditional love and light flow from your heart over your skin and into your groin area. Feel this area filled with the unconditional love and light. Notice how your body feels and responds. If you are physically female, use words to name female parts of your body. If you are physically male, use words to name male parts of your body. If you want to, take some moments to tell these parts of your body that you really love and appreciate them. Be as specific as you need to be. Tell them you love them again if you need.

Once again come back to your heart centre, and the glow and shine of the unconditional love that flows from the deepest part of your being. Relax into it.

Now place your awareness on the top of your back, from the back of one shoulder to the back of the other shoulder. Unless there is a back problem backs tend to be forgotten about and ignored. Now fill this space and cover the skin with unconditional love and light flowing from the heart centre. Notice how this part of your back feels with this unconditional love. If you want, say, “back, I love and appreciate you.”

Place your awareness on your upper back, including the back of your heart centre. Sense the skin, and the muscles, and your spine. Let unconditional love and light flow from your heart centre to completely saturate this space and cover your skin. Notice how this area of your body now feels. Let your upper back know that you love and appreciate it.

Now place your awareness in the middle of your back. Again, let love and light from your heart fill this area and cover your skin. Notice how your skin and back respond to the love. If you want, tell your back that you love and appreciate it.

Feel your heart centre, and the glowing love in it. Now notice your lower back; the skin, the muscles and the bones of your spine. Let love flow from your heart to the skin, to the muscles and to each vertebra of your spine. Notice any effect of the unconditional love and light. You can tell your lower back that you love and appreciate it. “Skin, I love and appreciate you”, “muscles, I love and appreciate you”, “spine, I love and appreciate you”. Again, notice any effect.

Move your awareness down to your buttocks area. Let the unconditional love and light from your heart centre flow into this area and fill it, saturate it with love and light. Let it fill the skin, the muscles, the spine, the back of the pelvis, the anus, and your body internally. Fill all of this area with love, giving extra attention if need be to any particular part of your body. If you want to, tell each part of this area you really love it and appreciate it.

Place your awareness on your upper left leg from your hip to your knee. Check over it. Let the love and light flow from your heart centre to cover and fill your upper left leg; skin, muscles, bone, blood vessels, nerves, tendons and ligaments, and any injuries. As the unconditional love and light flows in, notice how this part of your body feels. If you want to, tell your leg, or specific parts of it, that you love and appreciate them.

Place your awareness on your upper right leg, and check over it. Feel your heart centre and the love therein. Let this unconditional love and light flow onto and into your right leg, filling and saturating it so that it glows. Tell each and every part that you need to tell, that you love and appreciate it. Notice any effect.

Move your awareness to the lower left leg from the knee to the ankle. Feel your skin, your muscles, your bones, your ankle, and any specific part of your lower left leg. Now let the light of unconditional love from your heart centre flow down into your lower left leg. Let it fill it completely. Notice how your lower left leg feels. As you need, tell each part of your lower left leg that you love and appreciate it. Notice how that feels.

Place your awareness on your lower right leg from your knee to your ankle. Check over your lower right leg. Place your awareness back on your heart centre, and the bright love within it. Imagine this unconditional love flowing over and into all of your lower right leg, healing it. Tell any parts of your lower right leg that you love and appreciate them.

Now feel your left foot and toes. Let unconditional love and light flow from your heart centre into your left foot and toes. Let the light and love cover and saturate your left foot. If you like tell your foot you love and appreciate it. Do this in more detail if you want to, so you can focus on your heel, the middle of your foot, the ball of your foot, and each toe, depending on what needs attention.

Feel your right foot and toes. Let the unconditional love and light flow from your heart centre to your right foot and toes so they are completely filled and saturated. If you want, tell your foot that you love and appreciate them. You can say it in more detail if need be.

Rest back in your heart centre for a moment and enjoy the light and love. Let yourself feel how nourishing it is, this timeless love. Feel how wonderful it is.

Place your awareness on your left shoulder. Let unconditional love and light flow from your heart centre into and over your left shoulder, so that it is saturated. Tell your shoulder that you love it: “shoulder, I love and appreciate you”.

Now place your awareness on your right shoulder. Fill it with unconditional love and light from your heart centre so that it glows. Tell your right shoulder that you love and appreciate it.

Move your awareness to your left upper arm to your elbow. Let unconditional love and light flow in and over your upper left arm to fill it. If you want to, tell your upper arm that you love and appreciate it. Notice how it responds.

Place your awareness on your upper right arm. Unconditional love and light flows from your heart centre into your upper right arm and elbow, and fills it. Notice how this feels. Say to your upper right arm, mentally or out loud that you love it. Notice the response.

Now feel the infinite unconditional love in your heart centre. Just let it be there. Now let the unconditional love and light flow to your lower left arm and wrist, filling and covering it. Keep on filling it as you want.
Tell your lower left arm and wrist that you love and appreciate them. Just feel your lower arm and wrist.

Place your awareness on your lower right arm and wrist now. Let the unconditional love and light flow from your heart centre and cover and fill them. If you want to, tell your lower arm and wrist that you love and appreciate them.

Now place your awareness on your left hand and fingers. The centre of your palm has a connection with your heart centre which can facilitate healing. Let the unconditional love and light flow from your heart centre to your hand and fingers. This unconditional love and light covers and fills the back of your hand, the palm, and the fingers and thumb. As you need, tell each part of your hand that you love and appreciate them. Do this for a few moments.

Place your awareness on your right hand and fingers. Fill them with unconditional love and light from your heart centre. Let this love and light cover your hand and fingers. If you want to, tell your hand and fingers that you love and appreciate them. Focus on any part you may want to.

Again, place your awareness on your heart centre and the unconditional love within. Notice its brilliance and calmness, the joy inside, and the powerful silence.

Now place your awareness on your neck; on the front and the back and the sides. You can feel the skin, the muscles and vertebra. Inside, you can feel your throat, and notice your vocal cords. There is a lot inside the neck. Let unconditional love and light flow from your heart centre, into and over your neck. If you like, tell all the parts of your neck that you love and appreciate them for several moments.

Now place your awareness on your head. Fill your nose with unconditional love and light from your heart centre. If you want, tell your nose you love and appreciate it. Now focus on your eyes. Fill them with unconditional love and light from your heart centre, and tell your eyes that you love and appreciate them. Focus on your ears; fill them with unconditional love and light. If you want to, tell them that you love them. Focus on your lips, fill them with unconditional love and light from your heart centre. Notice how that feels. Tell your lips that you love and appreciate them. Focus on your face, and let unconditional love and light flow from your heart centre to your face, covering it and filling it with the unconditional love and light. Tell your face that you love and appreciate it.

Focus on any features of your face that you need to. Fill it with unconditional love and light from your heart centre, and tell them that you love and appreciate them.

Focus on your forehead. Let unconditional love and light cover and fill your forehead. If you want to, tell it that you love and appreciate it.

Place your awareness on your scalp, and your hair if you want to. Fill them, and cover them with unconditional love and light. Notice how that feels. If you want to, tell them that you love and appreciate them.

Now focus on the back of your head. Let unconditional love and light flow from your heart centre, covering and filling the back of your head. Tell the back of your head that you love and appreciate it.

Send unconditional love from your heart centre to your brain; the right hemisphere and the left hemisphere. Fill your brain with the unconditional love and light. Tell your brain that you love and appreciate it.

Now bring your awareness back to your heart centre and feel the unconditional love. You can take some moments to send unconditional love and light to your stomach, lungs, liver, pancreas, kidneys, adrenal glands, and the large and small intestines, and any other part you can think of. If you like, you can tell them that you love and appreciate them. If need be, you can send unconditional love and light from your heart centre to your sternum at the front of the ribcage, and other places where blood cells are made. You can tell these parts of your body that you love and appreciate them.

Now send unconditional love and light to your physical heart, filling your physical heart. Thank it for doing a good job, and tell your heart that you love and appreciate it.

Now place your awareness back on your heart centre, and the unconditional love inside. Immerse yourself in this energy for a few moments. Tell yourself that you love and appreciate yourself.

Become aware of your body, and your hands and feet, and when you are ready, open your eyes.

 

It is good to do this meditation repeatedly. If you wish, you can shorten the meditation to focus on specific parts of your body that you want to uplift, and change your mind’s opinion about that area.

We do tend to focus a lot on the physical body because that is what we can see. As people’s third eyes open then they will sense more of the energy of the aura and centres which have always been there. This will be a good thing as people may become inclined to make their energetic aspects clean, bright and spectacular. It’ll be like internal, energetic bling. (The basic way to get that is to clear your energy, protect it, think lovely thoughts, feel lovely feelings and be loving to yourself and others.)

 

How to work with your Higher Self to improve your Self-Esteem

The main rule in life for anyone with an interest in their spirituality is that there is no limitation. A key fact in spirituality is that energy follows thought. What you put energy into is what is likely to happen.

Before we reincarnate into creation, as spirit, as souls, we are on the inner planes considering the karmic package we have for that life, and the lessons on the timeline. Then we look in the wardrobe of the possible personalities to wear and get the one that matches the karma that needs to be balanced out or burnt off.

Then into creation we go.

Sometimes are karma is such that over the years we develop a strong appreciation of ourselves, we like ourselves, and love ourselves. The events in our lives, and the family and other people we have around us have the effect that we have effortless self-esteem. Our personality will be such that it automatically has a very high regard for itself.

Sometimes our karma is such that over the years we have low self-esteem. There are events in our lives that knock us back, that as children get us to think we are wrong, or unloveable, guilty and worthless for getting something to happen (though it is not really our fault). There were people around us who were cruel, critical, abusive and mean. They treated us as if we were worthless, not worthy of love. We were isolated and alone. The people around us mirrored back to us that we meant nothing. Our personality matched this. (Sometimes the personality and spirit are massive, powerful and tough, and they overcome.)

We have lives where we have high self-esteem, and lives we have low self-esteem.

If it is a life of low self-esteem, we might have enough spirituality to do something about it. Plus our Higher Selves will love us immensely, as they know who we really are. So this life is one to learn in and do the lesson of deliberately gaining self-esteem and appreciating that, then leave the past behind, and move on to a better, more fulfilled life.

A great way to do this is to go for no limitation, and know as you put in the positive and loving thoughts and feelings, then energy follows thought, and you can improve your self-esteem. From improved self-esteem, a lot else that is loving and positive can follow.

Part of the journey to build strong self-esteem is to identify and remove the old thinking. A lot of this goes on subconsciously because it has been absorbed right into the person’s being. Also, when you think, you feel. It’s automatic and natural.

From an energy point of view, where someone has been around people who have acted and spoken unloving or cruelly to them, that person can still have holes in their aura, and different forms of negative energy shoved into their chakras or centres. This makes for a sensitive aura and energy system. Even when there is no physical abuse, negative thoughts and emotions from someone who is being cruel or hateful, aimed at another person, usually end up in the target’s chakras and aura. This is especially the case when the target is a child, as their nervous system and energy system is not yet developed and is not robust (this changes around the age of 14 or so). This can act to pull a person down; the past can act like a drag.

Children tend to learn from those people around them, so it can also be the case that a child can learn low self-esteem from the adults around them. So if parents and other adults around the child have low self-esteem, and speak like it, and act like it, then a child can learn that by osmosis. In this kind of situation, a child might have the spirit and personality to not be touched by this, but rise above it. Even so, their self-esteem is not as likely to be as strong as a child who has parents and adults around who have high self-esteem, and who treat the child with love.

It’s where there is neglect and emotional and physical abuse, and shocks in life, that there is low self-esteem.

Self-esteem can be raised. In children it can be raised over time with love, praise, fairness, positive language, and by valuing the child. This can mean listening to them, letting them make their own decisions (this aspect could really be explored at length), and valuing what they do.

Working with energy, and using meditation, there are points to bear in mind.

We all have a higher Self who loves us completely. What the Higher Self is, I’m not quite sure, or else I could attempt to come up with a definition, but I think it would be limiting and wrong. I’m used to thinking in terms of 3-D life, so I don’t have the ability to look at someone’s higher Self, or have the language to describe it. Not yet, anyway. I can say that Higher Self is amazing, and is love and light. I know we have a soul and that soul is in creation. The larger part of the soul is on the inner planes, outside time, and what needed to be achieved by this aspect of the soul, has been. It knows what the end of this particular journey is like. Then the soul is part of the Oversoul, along with all the other souls. So the Higher Self could be an aspect of the soul, or the Oversoul, with its love, understanding, sentiency and compassion.

The following meditation to improve self-esteem includes a couple of aspects that help to reduce the negative past and lift the present moment.

In a quiet place, get comfortable… close your eyes.

Take several deep and gentle breaths, and let go. Just breathe, noticing the inbreath, and the outbreath.

To prepare for this journey into love and light, this part is to clear and anchor your system.

Imagine growing roots down out of your feet and the base of your spine, into the earth. Make the roots a colour that feels right to you. Light or dark colours; it doesn’t matter so long as it feels good. Let the roots grow down as far as you can. If you want to send them down to the centre of the earth, that is fine. The earth is loving, and gives non-judgementally. It sends up your roots, love and nurturing, healing earth energy into your system, into your aura, into your chakras and body. This energy nourishes your organs, your bones, which are made from minerals from the earth, your muscles, and your spirit. Your roots hold into the earth and pull on it. At the same time the earth pulls on your roots, anchoring you.

Any energy you don’t want, can fall away, and fall through your roots, and into the ground, where it can be transmuted. So any stress, or anger, or chaotic, negative energy can be released, let go, into the earth.

The earth’s energy touches your aura around you, gently dislodging energy that doesn’t need to be there. The earth’s energy goes into your base centre, bringing a healing and it revitalises your base centre. The earth’s energy goes into your sexual centre, again bringing a healing. The earth’s energy comes into your solar plexus. Unwanted cordings drop away, and the earth’s energy brings about a healing in your solar plexus. The earth’s energy moves up into the centres in your heart centre area, bringing a healing and expansion.

The earth’s energy moves up into your throat centre, to open it up, bring about a healing to open up your self-expression. Old limitations in your throat centre are removed.

The earth’s energy keeps moving up your chakras, bringing about a healing each moment it touches a chakra.

Now white light flows down from above, and moves down and around your aura. Brilliant, pristine, and pure white light flows over and throughout your aura. Pulsing waves of this white light flow down from the top of your aura. This dislodges the old and brings in the new at the same time.

The pure, pristine white light flows down your chakras that are above your head, and into the chakras in your head.  Old thoughts in your space about yourself that you might have thought, or others might have thought about you start to fragment, and drop away.

The beautiful, pure white light keeps flowing down your centres, so any shards of negative energy in your chakras become visible, and dissolved or removed. Your head centres start to glow with more light and peace. Your throat centre becomes more powerfully expansive. The centres in your heart area have any negative energy pushed out, and they glow brighter. Cordings from negative people from the past drop away, removing the echoes of their influence.

The pure white light flows down into your solar plexus centre, into emotions stored in there, melting them, stirring them up and dissolving them. Again, cordings become filled with white light, burnt away, and then drop off. There is a fire burning in the solar plexus as the old emotions, and old situations are energetically chewed through, learnt from, and then removed to burn. The energy from this, once broken down, can be recycled.

The pure and beautiful white light flows down into the sexual centre, and pours in filling layers that are in an onion skin pattern. Each layer is filled with white light. Old cordings are filled with light and drop away. Old doorways are blasted with light, and then closed. Old shards of negative energy are brought to light, and then dissolved by the light. Old emotions and thoughts are shattered and burnt away. A re-patterning of the energy in the sexual centre occurs, so that energy is worked in a new way in the centre.

The pure and brilliant white light flows down into the base centre. It pours in and fills this space, changing and transmuting the old energy into something more expansive, lighter, quicker, and more creative. Old thoughts and feelings are gently dissolved. New possibilities and timelines are introduced. New thoughts are made possible.

A flash of gold light zips your aura and centres, and flashes through all parts of your body.

Your Higher Self, you as a beautiful being of light stands in front of you, blazing with light, understanding and peace. They look into your eyes, and your eyes look down the timeline of your past. As your Higher Self looks at you with a blazing energy, you look down your timeline with a blazing energy. Your timeline lights up a bright white and glows, as the energy burns down your timeline, turning to smoke old, grey and black looking events. Your Higher Self’s heart also shines and yours does too. Your Higher Self moves to stand close behind you, so you are cocooned in their energy field of light. Your heart and your Higher Self’s heart shine out light down your timeline into your past down to your conception. Your eyes and your Higher Self’s eyes shine down your timeline all the way to your conception. Bit by bit, there is healing and transmutation, as you feel your Higher Self around you, that which you will become, and on the inner planes, have already become.

As this healing occurs, the energy in your aura and chakras alters. Timelines held in your centres alter, to bring new positive possibilities. The sending of this light through you and from your Higher Self continues. As it happens, there is a bit of a merging with your Higher Self.

The sending of energy to your timeline comes to a stop.

Your Higher Self steps away from behind you, to stand in front of you. They Love you because they know who you really are. They look at you, and in a special moment, give you a smile filled with energy, filled with something new, that touches your system.

They then move off into what seems like the distance, yet they are close energetically, in the background.

Now bring your awareness back to your body. Notice your breathing for several breaths. Notice your arms and legs, and your fingers and toes.

When you are ready, open your eyes.

This is a powerful meditation that can be repeated.

Along with this, it is important to think positive thoughts about yourself to overcome any negative thoughts. Years ago, one healer said that every time I had a negative thought about myself I should say to myself, “I love and approve of myself”, two hundred times. I did do that. Nothing like repetition, repetition, repetition. I didn’t have time to think negative thoughts. The thought, “I love and approve of myself”, is a key one. There are other ones such as “I’m loved and wanted”. This is a useful transition thought, though the most important person to be loved by is oneself, rather than try to gain the love and approval of others.  “I am loveable”, is a useful thought. If someone has been made to feel guilty, then a thought like, “I am innocent, I love and approve of myself”. If belittled and made to feel worthless or useless: “I am wonderful, I love and appreciate myself”. There are variations, such as saying that you are valuable, worthy, or good enough, or fascinating (this is stronger than interesting). Another key thought is, “I love and respect myself”.

All of this is on a personality level, because our souls, who we really are, are part of God. God is in all of us. The Divine is in all of us. So deep down, we are all amazing. Going through karma, it might not seem that way. When someone becomes God-realized, and sense their true Divine nature, what bothers the personality mind becomes irrelevant, and the need for self-esteem fades away. Until that time, with a personality mind, self-esteem IS important, and is a useful tool in gaining and expressing spirituality.

Then, as we move from a Piscean energy, into a more collective Aquarian energy, we will likely gain more empathy for other people (and other lifeforms), most likely in an emotionally telepathic way, and we will need to powerfully esteem and love others, while at the same time, being true to ourselves. So that will be a new lesson in our spirituality.
