Love is My Truth

I had an ‘aha’ moment in meditation a few days ago. Quite a while ago, I read The Anatomy of the Spirit by Carolyn Myss. In it, she connects the seven Hindu chakras to the seven Christian Sacraments and the Kabbalah’s Tree of Life. At the end of the book, she provides a meditation to connect with each chakra, and an affirmation for each.  I added the affirmations to my daily meditation practice, taking time to check in with each chakra and notice any energetic shifts.

Most of the affirmations I easily connect with and resonate with. I have my own thoughts and interpretations about many of them. One that has stumped me, or rather, one that I have not had any extra insight into, is the affirmation for the third eye chakra, “Seek only truth.”

Love is my truthOn the surface, that’s pretty easy. Look for truth. OK. While there are some universal truths, each individual’s truth is relative. I see and interpret the world around me through the filters of my experience, and my filters are not the same as anyone else’s. So my truth is not necessarily the same as yours. Do I seek universal truths? Even so, you may not agree with me on what those are.

Skip back even farther in my reading history, to The Biology of Transcendence by Joseph Chilton Pearce. This book talks partly about the heart-mind connection, that our hearts have neurons, and that the electromagnetic field of the heart is many times stronger than that of the brain. Pearce theorizes that Jesus, and other spiritual masters, were an example of our next stage of evolution, a preview of what we can become, and it has to do with activating the frontal lobe, possibly by connecting the frontal lobe to the heart field. I always thought about it in terms of moving my thinking out of my head and into my heart.

I am not a scientist, or a doctor, so in my mind, I work to connect the third eye chakra to the heart chakra. I can visualize that, and conceptually I can understand that.

Carolyn Myss’s affirmation for the heart chakra is “Love is Divine power.” When I am connecting with my heart chakra, I open my heart to the world with love.

The ‘aha’ moment came for me when I put Carolyn Myss’s affirmations together with Joseph Chilton Pearce’s theory. If I am going to connect my frontal lobe (third eye chakra) with my heart field (heart chakra), then the way to do that is with the energy of love. If I am to “Seek only truth,” my truth is love. Therefore, I need only seek to see love energy in others to seek truth. Instead of just moving my head to my heart, I also need to bring my heart to my head.

If you’ve ever had an ‘aha’ moment of great realization, you understand the rush of energy and excitement that goes with it. Even now, just writing about it, I’m getting tingles. Love is my truth.

What ‘aha’ moments have you had that changed your thinking or your way of being in the world?



An Invitation…

I recently returned home from The Peaceful Woman Maui Facilitator Passage.  This is the third time I have gone, and it continues to amaze me.  Or rather, I continue to amaze myself.

How do you describe your own inner journey to someone else? How do you put deeply personal and meaningful “aha” moments into words?  The Peaceful Woman Maui Passage is a week long journey into your own truth.  And each time I return, I learn more and more about myself.  I learn how to cut through the noise in my own head, to drop into that still place inside myself where my soul resides.  I learn how to be the observer in my own life–how am I occurring in this situation?  And what does that say about how I occur in the rest of my life?

I arrive open to the teachings this time and this place have prepared for me, vulnerable in the knowledge that I have manifested the experiences that will take me to the next level.  I am here to support the other women on their journey, and I allow myself to be supported, by conscious women who become soul sisters, as well as by Mother Maui, a magical island that has much to share.  I tune in, listening to the requests of the women with me on this Passage, my body,  and Mother Nature all around me, knowing they are all reflections of my innermost Divine self.  I share my experiences and insights, and soak up the breakthrough moments like the rays of brilliant sunshine.

I dance the ancient dance, blessing the land, and walk the labyrinth to my center and back.  I am cleansed in the river of feminine energy, and purified in the ocean where the ancients landed their canoes.  I am teleported to the sacred place where the sky meets the land, from which messages are sent and received.  I walk the fields of heat and passion, sweat out the stones that block my Light, and claim my blessings.  I sway with strong bamboo, bathe in healing waterfalls, and am pampered into a state of relaxed bliss.  I unite with my sisters to carry us swiftly across the waves to sing to the turtles, and swim amidst rainbow colored fish.  I celebrate the journey with dancing, singing and feasting!

And throughout I am treated to the wisdom of the Hawai’ian culture.

Experience is a better teacher than any book, and nature is the best classroom there is.

This is my truth, and I choose to live from this place of peace and power.  I invite you to join me, to know your truth, and live your truth. I am leading Peaceful Woman Maui Passages August 15th-21st, and September 12th-18th, and there are other dates with other incredible facilitators available. For a limited time, you can get 10% off the full price of your Passage.  Please enter coupon code “MM”.  There are also limited spaces for facilitators still available.  Contact me here if that is something you are interested in.
