Honour yourself

“Love brings the sea into boiling

and turns the mountain into a pebble.

Love creates infinite openings

in the dark sky and shudders

the earth with its magnitude.”

~ RUMI

“She spins, this great earth goddess, upon invisible strings amongst a wildly pulsating ballet of life. Stars are born, live and die all around her. Life moves in constant flux, and still she spins in her great, loving, constant pirouette. How can this be? All of creation is born from nothing; out of endless silence and darkness, light emerges. What strange magic is this? The sun heats the solar system and burns with the power to destroy life; yet, it is a force by which life is sustained. Surely this makes no sense and cannot be? We dance in the realm of the impossible made possible constantly, you and I. We are so engrossed in it, so familiar with it and yet blinded to it, that these constant impossibilities happening in every moment fail to inspire us.

Yet what are your biggest, boldest, most extraordinarily impossible dreams compared to this great impossibility of life itself? Ah, they are but tiny seeds in the Creator’s masterful hand being now planted in the heavenly garden. Yes, they are being planted right now, for the moon tells us the time is right. Most tenderly shall they be watched over, nurtured into fullness according to the season. Yes, that growth is assured. The impossible is now made possible.”

“We only limit what we believe to be possible by our lack of imagination! The Divine has recourse to all that is and all that is yet to be. Is there any limit to the resources of the heavens? what we believe to be possible by our lack of imagination! The Divine has recourse to all that is and all that is yet to be. Is there any limit to the resources of the heavens? No! So then, why has not every impossible dream now been rendered possible, indeed manifest in shining glory upon the earth? The human heart knows everything envisioned can manifest according to the divine timing and grace. Yet the mind does quake with fear, so much so that it will not listen to the heart at times. That fear is a childlike nightmare: that should you offer yourself up to the sacred loving power of the Great Creator you might be found to be lacking. The mind holds itself captive with dark fantasies of that profound rejection and then avoids confronting it directly at all costs. It creates barriers instead, truly nothing more than lines in the sand yet believed to be forts.

But what strongholds can resist love? It is like water. I seeps into every available space and changes form to survive in every environmental condition. With unfailing intelligence it creates life – from steam to ice, rainfall, the river, and ocean, rain descending into snowflakes, snow capping the peak, expressing itself with beauty and genius. It nestles under the earth and rises to the sky, only to return to the earth again. It will erode blockages and prevail, no matter how long that process takes. It carves the earth into shape and form. Where it is, there is life. Such is the adaptable intelligence and persistence of water, just as it is the power of love.

So now you are guided by this loving power to drop the doubt. Shed the incredulity and open up the mind. Allow your imagination to be inspired as though you are a child in a great garden hearing the breath of the earth in the wind-whipped leaves and the voices of the ancestors in birdsong. The universe wants wants something to happen for you, something beautiful, something utterly improbable, and something perfect for your path, your own unique divine destiny. Your mind will wonder if it is even possible. People around you may wonder the same thing, but your heart will burn for it to become real, to become more than a fantastic improbable dream. You will want it with all your soul. You may not even be consciously aware as yet what this great desire is, but your heart knows. It holds a secret knowledge and will unveil it when your mind can handle it. When your heart is much more powerful than your mind, you won’t unintentionally block the incredible grace of manifestation seeking to pour into your thirsty soul, like the sweetest, purest waters of blessing.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Place your hands very lightly at your throat.

Say aloud: “

With RUMI who loves me unconditionally as my witness, I now offer myself into the hands of the all-loving creative intelligence of this universe. I release all vows, intentions or beliefs ever made – consciously or unconsciously, in this or any lifetimes – that are based in doubt and fear, holding back from creative fruition of my soul upon the earth. I dedicate myself to love and accept the gift of grace that brings me into greater fulfillment now. May I be blessed so I can surrender resistance and accept what is coming to me now for what it is – a gift of love. So be it.”

Place your hands at your heart and focus on your breath for a moment or two as it flows in and out.

When you are ready, place your hands in prayer position and bow your head to your hands.

You have completed your sacred honouring ritual.”* namaste
