We've all heard of Solar Power. It's changed the way we think of and use energy in our homes and lives. Much like the panels that absorb the light and energy of the Sun, our bodies and our beings do the same. I offer a simple equation below (and a meditation) to help us cultivate a deeper connection with the star at the center of our solar system.
Solar Powered Equation: Light Energy + Consciousness = Healing and Manifestation
Woo! That's no small equation folks.
Let's begin with Light Energy. What we know of the Sun scientifically is the tip of the celestial iceberg. Our Sun has been acknowledged, studied and worshiped for as long as humans were able to walk mother earth. Cave paintings show glyphs of .... Egyptians called on the Sun God Ra... Mayans offered sacrifices to .. So what does this have to do with light energy? Everything. From eons before the internet, people all over the earth were experiencing and ackowledging similar understandings of the Sun's power towards manifestation. The Sun's light sustains and supports our planet, without it we would not be here. Taking a moment to connect, acknowledge, and be grateful for this is humbling and profound. Humbling because most of us in the western world have taken the Sun's energy for granted.. We rarely if ever look up to the Sun and say "Thank you for shining your light!" But the truth is that the Suns light is simply essential, and everything simple is profound. In the meditation below I invite you to create a space for the simple intention of allowing the light of the Sun to heal and cleanse your spirit and soul.. At first blush, it seems too simple, but once you step in and actually apply the practice, it works wonders.
Moving onto Consciousness. I'd like to offer a new definition of Consciousness. Most of us have been taught that consciousness is the part of us that is awake and moving about the rational linear world. This is again only the tip of the iceberg. Our Consciousness extends far beyond our mind and thoughts, into and beyond our emotional, mental and spiritual energy bodies... Or Consciousness moves beyond this lifetime.. beyond this third dimensional plane of existence. We are SO much more than we realize. Our Consciousness (with a capital 'C') is who we really are beyond our bodies in this lifetime and beyond all time and space.
Thus far, the combination of the light energy from the Sun and our own expanding awareness of our true purpose and power in this lifetime together create healing and manifestation.. Let's keep going!
Healing. The reason why so may of us are in these bodies, on this planet, in this lifetime is to heal, evolve, and ascend. So we use the energy of the Sun together with our own Consciousness to realize the higher purpose of why we are really here.
Manifestation. I just love this part.. because it is SO much FUN! On some level we all know that we can create our reality.. we are (most of us) trained to use linear thought and awareness to create things.. job, money, partnership, family, home. I'm going to sound like a broken record when I say "that's just the tip of the iceberg!" But its true, we can create anything. On some level we all know this, in fact we worship it. Think of the people in our society who are held up and venerated for creating something out of nothing, or having a vision like no other and making it happen. From Walt Disney, to Bill Gates to Nikola Tesla.. They are fascinating because they show us a part of our own inner knowing that we too can create anything and everything. So, how to get started? Start simple. Begin to focus on things that matter less to you; whether its the type of lunch meat on your sandwich, or the color of the flowers in a bouquet. Practice holding a vision of what you want for just a brief second, then let it go.. and see what happens. As you gain confidence in your ability to manifest, you can move onto more meaningful goals.. but I suggest taking your time (much more time than you think you need) here. Have fun with it.. It's sort of like being in a Harry Potter movie, only totally different because your manifestations real.
To bring everything to culmination, we're bringing awareness to four items: light energy, consciousness, healing, & manifestation. Once you get the sense of each of these four elements, you can use them together to create everything you desire. I recommend keeping it simple and moving slowly. I offer below a meditation to allow and encourage us to continue using our breath, and to connect to the star that is the center of our solar system that provides us continuing light and energy. It is my hope that that we can learn to use to unconditional energy of the Sun to energize and heal ourselves. Enjoy!
