Sunday Homily: Becoming One With Yourself

Spirit, Soul, Body – Living As One

Part of living and walking your talk, is learning to live as One with the Divine I think it’s hard for us to put it into a box of this life as Spirit in you life. Whatever that is to you, walking your path means bringing your spirit into your daily life and expressing the love and compassion in all things. Sometimes that can get confusing and people struggle with the concept of becoming one with spirit. How do we do this, what aspects of self are we uniting and connecting. How do we live the talk and belief of our spiritual path?

It can be a daunting perspective to grasp for some. And that’s understandable. Many spiritual teachers talk about “Becoming One”, and explain why it’s important. But how many break it down and explain the details of what that means and how it can be accomplished? Today, we’ll look at how Pagan Metaphysics looks at this concept and how we can become one with the self. Along with the Divine in your life.

To start we need to break down the aspects of self. Who are we? How are we connected and intertwined with the Divine in the first place? Living life actually starts with understanding the processes of physical Life and Death. You can read more about the Pagan Metaphysical view from “What Happens When We Die – The Process of Life and Death”  here on Springwolf Reflections. Understanding who we are as Spiritual beings and how we choose our past lifetimes to create a new embodiment helps to visualize the components of self that we’re bringing together. Continue reading

A Traditional Holistic Healing Art

Reiki is an ancient art of healing. It is often referred to as a Zen art of hands on holistic healing, where the healer is a channel for the Divine Universal Life Force Energy.

I have been a practicing Reiki Healer since 1989. Over the past two decades of practice I have learned a few things and changed my view of some aspects of Reiki. As with everything in life, the more you learn and expand your knowledge, so too should your views and perspectives also change and grow.

In 1999 I wrote a section about Reiki on my original educational website. I outlined the general information about what Reiki is, its practices, the general information about the Reiki I and II levels of training. All from the perspective of a traditionally trained Reiki Master. I even included a page on the controversies surrounding the history, attunements and pricing of Reiki training. Continue reading

The Importance Of Mind/Body/Spirit Thinking

crystalwolfHow To Develop Your Spiritual Consciousness Connection

Every animal on this planet has an inner instinct or insight. We’ve heard stories about Elephants grabbing people and running for high ground as a tsunami approaches all in danger. For centuries, scientists have said to watch animals for predictions of bad weather.

According to the USGS in an article entitled “Animals & Earthquake Prediction“:
The earliest reference we have to unusual animal behavior prior to a significant earthquake is from Greece in 373 BC.  Rats, weasels, snakes, and centipedes reportedly left their homes and headed for safety several days before a destructive earthquake.  Anecdotal evidence abounds of animals, fish, birds, reptiles, and insects exhibiting strange behavior anywhere from weeks to seconds before an earthquake.  However, consistent and reliable behavior prior to seismic events, and a mechanism explaining how it could work, still eludes us.

As human beings we are part of that animal kingdom with an inner ability to sense the unseen subtle changes in energy around us. But many have lost or turned away from these natural instincts. They have degraded those who do believe in these inner instincts, ridiculed those who are in-tune with these abilities and vilify those who try to explain and teach others to connect to and talk to their natural intuition on a daily basis.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Pentacles –

9 Of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Worry is making you weary and taking your energy. You put all your eggs in one basket and there’s not much you can do about that now. Blaming yourself for past choices is holding you in the past of lack and struggle. You must let it go and deal with the here and now. You have responsibilities that must be met head on and face to face. You can refill the basket, but you must work for the future with what you have before you. Not what you didn’t have behind you.


Additional Insight:

Stress is not only taking your energy, it’s impacting your health in your physical condition and mental thoughts. Stop dwelling on the past and the choices you should have made. You can’t change the past. But you can change the way you allow past decisions and events to affect you now and tomorrow. You have plenty of things in front of you to work on. Focus on your future choices and decisions. Gather your information and evidence and you’ll have better information to decide what needs to be done.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Six of Cups

Six of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

To fill your cup, you must first make sure it’s open and facing in the right direction. Even if you’re going with the flow around you to maintain peace, you can’t take in the blessings that cross your path when you’re closed and ready for the opportunities that come. Sometimes it takes both optimism and effort to open your heart and mind to the world around you. You never know, you might actually find something new that brings excitement and passion back into your life.


 
Additional Insight:

The mind is like a parachute, it must be open to work. So too is the desire to live a life that’s upbeat and filled with joy and love. If you have built walls because of past events, you’re not only keeping yourself locked in, but you’re keeping the good things in the world out. Sometimes it’s good to remember that while your struggles may have been very hard, somewhere in the world someone else has it much worse than you do. If they can get through the day, so can you. So cast off the fear and trepidation, tear down the walls and open your heart and mind to the possibilities around you. You’ll be glad you did.
