Posts Tagged ‘THE LIGHT’

Today from my Daily Kabbalah Tune Up email:

Judging from emails I’ve been getting from students, there are some of us who feel like we have never experienced ‘the Light.’

Let me tell you that you have. We all have, even though it may be fleeting.

Think of the moment you put the final touches on a project that you fiercely believed in, one that took lots of time and effort to complete. That rush of a job well done is the Light.

Or how about that time you thought of someone and they called just at that moment. That too is the Light. Or when you get a great idea or answer. That too is the Light.

So you have touched the Light. The more you look for it, the more you will find it.

Today, find the Light in everything you are doing. It’s there. Allow yourself to recognize it.

Have a delightful day.

Isn’t this wonderful?  The idea that we are continually “touching the Light”, except we just don’t know that we are.  There are many times where I know I’ve touched the light, but there are a few times that stand out with brilliance for me.

The first was soon after my ex-husband and I arrived in the UK.  I was feeling really down, homesick and bluesy and we were out with some friends we had just become friendly with.  They took us on a gentle hike, up a hill somewhere.  At the top we stood, looking down into the valley, almost entirely surrounded by magnificently tall pine trees.  As we stood there, I finally felt able to breathe deeply again and I took great big gulping breathes of the sweet pine scented air.  And then I felt this sense of peace pervading my body.  I felt like the trees were breathing life into me, blowing out the melancholy.  I felt my soul start to sing again.  And I felt tears of joy.  What sweet relief that the debilitating sadness had left me!  I kept saying over and over again, “Oh my gosh!  This is soul food!” (my companions thought I was funny and just laughed at me), but I recognized that I was having an intensely spiritual experience.  I later came to realize that those particular tears, were the tears I would experience every time I connected that deeply to the Light.  That was the very first time in my life that I experienced God (or The Divine) and it amused me no end that it was through nature and not through pompous churches and so-called church leaders.

The second was through Reiki.  I cannot remember the exact time sequence, but it was some months after I had completed my Reiki I course and I was doing the prescribed self-treatment.  It was also at a time when although I had developed some sense of energy, I was no where near as sensitive to energy as I am now.  So there I was doing my self-treatment, which until now had not been too remarkable and would usually just send me to sleep, and I had my hands over my chest and heart and suddenly that same sense of pervading peace and calm that I experienced from the trees, filled me.  It is a difficult sensation to describe and “filled me”  sounds to inadequate, but it really did fill me until I felt like I was completely filled, even overflowing, almost like I became one with the peace, like there was no lines and edges to my body, like I was just an energy mass.  This time though, there was also a sense of ecstasy and intense joy, I think because I recognized what was happening.  And again, the quiet joyful tears.

It is amazing to me that these 2 brief experiences have been so life changing for me.  They sustain me now, many years later, when I sometimes feel no hope and want to curl up in a ball and die.  I KNOW that I can reach that peace again, that “this too shall pass” and that I just have to hold out a little while longer and get just a little clearer.  And I KNOW without a doubt that there is “something else”, more than just this physical world we see. And I also KNOW that there are many paths to the Light and that no one is better or worse than the other.  It really is what works for the individual.

I feel so very blessed to have had these experiences and been able to develop these absolute knowings.

Huh? You’re saying? What’s going on? This is not a new blog ? But it certainly looks new-ish, doesn’t it?!

That’s because I changed the name of the blog and the header image. But same blog, same person, different look.

Sorry that I’ve been away for a while. I do that every now and again…disappear from the blog-o-sphere. It’s good for the soul, to lead an offline life once in a while 🙂 I guess one would normally tell their readers that though, first, before they disappear. Oops!

So what’s with the new name and header image, you ask. I decided ‘Meandering Ramblings’ no longer fitted. It aptly described where I was in my life when I first started this blog, but no longer. I am far more focused now. No more dreamily floating around, seeing where life would take me. Now I have a goal. And that goal is THE LIGHT. Well, actually, it’s been that for a few years now, I’ve just not ever overtly stated it. I am now overtly stating it – and going for it.

My life is a journey, with the sole purpose of reaching THE LIGHT or Enlightenment. Everything I do, consciously or unconsciously is directed towards that goal.

Saying that though, not all of what you will read here will be high-falutin spiritual speak. Much of it will be about my day-to-day living, the triumphs and tribulations thereof. But then again, it is my belief that the lessons and growth we (I) seek are around us all the time, we just have to notice them and then learn them. So of course my greatest growth with come from my every day living!

It would be lovely to have you along for the ride 🙂
