Touching the Limitless
Dear Blessed One,
Oh the wonders of life. Watch as the veils continue to dissolve exposing your vastness. Sometimes it doesn’t even take a keen eye to see it.
While giving a Reiki treatment in 1998, as my awareness was pointed inward and connected in the heart, I spontaneously launched into an experience of oneness. It felt like the person receiving Reiki (Leah) and I were one – everything was One! Somehow, we (as one) were soaring through space and everything was happening NOW – blissful eternity is the best way I can describe it (no words can explain the experience of eternity).
I began looking around as we were flying through space and suddenly realized that we were not flying through space, we WERE space! “I” was boundless. Although there was no separation, Leah, space and I were truly one, I still knew myself as a point of consciousness and knew Leah as a point of consciousness (faceless as we were) in the vast Space.
I realized I had never been anywhere but There always and that realization startled me which threw me back into my body. It felt like I’d been gone forever but only a couple of minutes had passed.
The experience had a huge impact on me. I recognized the vastness as Me and really wanted to go back. Even though I couldn’t control when I had the expanded states of consciousness, I learned a lot from that particular experience. I realized that everything is one, holy and pure. It took years though to heal old wounds and for imprints, programming and habits to dissolve.
Finding balance between being and doing helped me to remember the truth of who I am. Too much doing can tighten the grip of the ego then identification with the one who creates and accomplishes can happen. Creating space to just be, without a book, phone or calendar in hand and rest in stillness increases the possibility of touching the limitless you.
When sitting in stillness, bring attention to one thing in nature or into your heart or to the physical sensation of bare feet on the ground or the sun on your skin and stay with that experience. If the mind comes in with a narration, gently bring awareness back to the single point of focus. The more you do it, the easier it gets and the less the mind tugs at you. Eventually an opening can happen and a glimpse of your greater nature, the infinite you is experienced.
You are the Universe, boundless, timeless and exquisite. There is nothing that can take that away from you. Even a thought that you are not the universe will not put a blemish on your infinite and pristine nature.
The Formless delights in knowing itself through form. Dance your dance, whatever it may be while realizing there is more to you than the mind can fathom. How much more freedom and ease in life can you experience with this realization?
Much Love and Blessings to You,
